If you've had the unfortunate experience of being injured in a car accident, we understand how difficult this time may be for you. In addition to the physical pain and suffering, it's not uncommon for your well-being to take a blow, as well. Questions like, "How soon can I get back to work?" and "Will my insurance do their part?" can cause added stress that you really just don't need right now.
At United Citizen Law, we would like to help alleviate some of those overwhelming feelings. We may not be able to help your body heal, but we can take care of the legalities so you can focus all your energy on getting better.
Car Accidents & California Law
There are a few key things you'll want to remember as we seek compensation:
1. There is a time limit.
If you make the decision to file a lawsuit, there are a couple of deadlines you'll need to keep in mind. If you decide to file a personal injury lawsuit, you have two years from the date of the car accident to do so. The purpose of a personal injury lawsuit is to seek damages for all harm done to you, the person. It doesn't cover the vehicle itself. That type of lawsuit falls under “property damage,” for which the statute of limitations is three years.
