In the state of California, you have two years to file a personal injury claim before the statute of limitations runs out. The statute of limitations can be found in the California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1. The statute of limitations is essentially how long you have to file a claim in order to recover compensation before you lose your legal right to do so. This time limit can change based on the specifics of your case, which is why it is important to speak to an attorney right away! Call our firm today to discuss the details of your case during a free consultation.
What Do I Do After an Accident?
If you’ve been injured in an accident, the top priority is seeking medical attention. Receiving medical treatment for injuries is crucial to ensure your injuries do not worsen. Keep your medical bills and records to use in your injury claim. If you’re still at the scene of the accident while waiting for treatment, it’s also important to document the accident as much as possible. Collect contact information from witnesses and take photos of property damage. After you’ve been treated, your next step is hiring an attorney who can begin working on your case as soon as possible.
Do I Have a Case If I Don’t Feel Hurt?
Even if you initially can’t feel any pain or detect injuries after your accident, you should still seek medical attention. The adrenaline you feel after your accident may reduce sensations of pain, and you may develop symptoms hours and even days after your accident. You may still have a case if you don’t feel hurt immediately following the accident and should monitor your symptoms.
