Statute of Limitations for a Los Angeles Injury Claim

Under California law, most types of injury lawsuits must be filed within two years from the date the injury occurred. The clock on that statute of limitations will start to tick on the date of  the injury, and it will continue to tick for two years. If you do not file a lawsuit within that two-year window, your claim will likely become time-barred. 

However, you should not assume that you have at least two years to file an injury claim. In some cases, especially when an injury occurs on public property, you may need to file your claim much more quickly, sometimes as soon as six months. Moreover and substantial injury cases, our firm will frequently file a lawsuit within three months of the date of injury. An experienced injury claims lawyer in Los Angeles can assess your case for you today and can help to ensure that your lawsuit is filed in a timely manner.
