The Statute of Limitations in California
Every state has a time limit on when injury victims must file a personal injury claim before they lose their right to recover compensation, this is called the statute of limitations. In California the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is two years, this means you have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim. If your claim is against a government entity or city you will need to file a claim within six months of the accident, instead of two years. An attorney from our firm will be able to explain to you how this law may affect your case, call today!
What Compensation Is Available in Personal Injury Claims?
Every case is different and, therefore, the exact type and amount of compensation you may be able to recover for your injuries, pain and suffering, and other losses is unique to your situation. That being said, we have helped many injured individuals and surviving loved ones of those wrongfully killed secure significant settlements and verdicts for relatively common damages.
Generally speaking, there are three types of damages available for injury victims to pursue in a personal injury case. These damages are economic, non-economic and punitive damages. The first two damages can be grouped together as “compensatory damages.” Compensatory damages are responsible for compensating the injured party for as many losses as possible. Among other things, these losses include:
We can help you seek compensation for the following:
- All medical expenses related to the accident, including the cost of immediate and ongoing treatment, surgeries, rehabilitation therapy, medications, and more
- The cost of medical equipment required as a result of your injuries (crutches, wheelchairs, etc.), as well as modifications that must be made to your home (wheelchair ramp installation, etc.)
- Lost wages and/or income (past and future) due to temporary or permanent disability
- Non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering (including physical pain, mental distress, and emotional trauma), inconvenience, and disfigurement
Punitive damages differ from compensatory damages in that their main purpose is not to compensate the injured party but act as a punishment against the negligent party. When someone else’s negligence irrevocably alters your life, you shouldn’t have to simply suffer the consequences on your own. Put our extensive experience on your side.
