What is the Statute of Limitations for Auto Accidents in California?

Posted by: Personal Injury Attorney  

What is the Statute of Limitations for Auto Accidents in California?An automobile accident is a very common occurrence, and the moment that the driver receives their license, it is exceedingly important to understand the basics of these traumatic scenarios. This includes knowledge on the statute of limitations, one of the most important factors that our experienced Los Angeles auto accident attorney will be able to assist you with immediately following the collision.


California is very similar to many of the other states throughout the country and it has set the statute of limitations for all civil suits that involve an injury at two years. This frame of time begins when the injury takes place, but there are exceptions to this rule. If there were internal or ongoing injuries that the victim was not aware of until a later point, we may be able to work with our clients and the judge to extend the statute of limitations to two years from the date of discovery. There are also alterations to these laws for minors and those that will be leveling a lawsuit against the county or another government agency.

A car accident can be a terrifying event, and the legal process that will follow is not something that you or your loved ones ever need to take on alone. Our personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles has worked with countless victims throughout the years, and we understand exactly what it takes to setup a winning case.
