What is the Statue of Limitations For a Car Accident Claim in California?

California's statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim related to a car accident is generally two years from the incident date. If the lawsuit is not filed within that period, it may be dismissed, and the injured person may lose their right to recover compensation.

However, if you are seeking damages from an entity or individual other than the other driver involved in your accident, such as an auto parts manufacturer, then you may have up to three years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit. This can be complicated, and it is essential to consult an experienced attorney who can help you understand these timeframe issues and determine how long you have to take legal action in your particular case.

“Got into a bicycle vs car mishap resulting in a few nights in the ICU thus hospital bills were mounting in the low 6 figures. Shopped around for legal guidance which led me to attorney and fellow cyclist Richard Duquette who came highly recommended in the San Diego cycling community. The cohesive team worked hard on my behalf and Duquette's generational experience helped navigate and apply pressure to the appropriate parties when necessary. Was able to get the maximum recovery so I could recover without the added stress of paying hospital bills over the next decade. Would highly recommend.”
