Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in CA

The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in California is generally two years from the date of the injury or accident. This means that if you want to file a personal injury lawsuit in California, you typically have two years from the date the injury occurred to do so.

However, it's important to note that there are exceptions and variations depending on the specific circumstances of the case and the type of injury. For example:

  • Discovery Rule: In some cases, the discovery rule may apply, which means the two-year statute of limitations begins when the injury is discovered or should have been discovered, rather than on the date of the actual incident.
  • Government Entities: If your personal injury claim is against a government entity or public agency in California, you may have a shorter time frame to file a claim, often as short as six months.
  • Minors: If the injured party is a minor (under 18 years of age) at the time of the injury, the statute of limitations may be tolled (delayed) until they reach the age of majority, which is 18 in California.
  • Medical Malpractice: Medical malpractice cases in California have a different statute of limitations, typically three years from the date of the alleged malpractice or one year from the date of discovery, whichever comes first.

Please keep in mind that laws can change, and the specific details of your case may affect the statute of limitations that applies to you. It's crucial to consult with a qualified to understand how the statute of limitations applies to your particular situation and to ensure you take appropriate legal action within the required timeframe.
