Compensation for Car Accident Victims
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your collision, you may be entitled to recover a wide range of monetary damages from the at-fault party. Commonly awarded damages include lost wages, present and future medical bills, vehicle repair costs, rehabilitation costs, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. In the event that you have lost a loved one due to injuries sustained in a car accident, an additional wrongful death claim may be filed in pursuit of further compensation.
Our San Diego personal injury attorneys believe that negligent drivers should be held responsible for their actions behind the wheel. Through negotiations with the involved insurance companies and a detailed examination of accident reports, witness testimonies, and accident recreation techniques, we can fight to ensure you have access to the financial resources you need to recover from your injuries as smoothly as possible.
How Long Do I Have to File a Car Accident Claim?
Like every other state, California has its own set of deadlines that determine how long a person is permitted to seek compensation for their losses after a car accident. This time limit is known as a “statute of limitations.”
If the statute of limitations expires and you have not yet filed a claim, you will no longer have a right to pursue legal action.
The time limits for lawsuits related to car accidents in California are as follows:
- Two years for personal injury
- Three years for property damage
It is important to note that these limits only apply to car accident lawsuits, not insurance claims. Your insurance provider will likely have its own set of deadlines for filing a claim. For this reason, it is wise to file
an insurance claim as soon as possible after a collision, as it will provide you with plenty of time to file a lawsuit in the event that settlement negotiations should fail. Our attorneys can ensure you are compliant with all relevant deadlines and handle any disputes that should arise throughout the course of your claim.
