How Do You Protect The Statute of Limitation in a California Personal Injury Case?

In every injury case there will be a point in time when the law will prohibit you from pursuing your claim against the person or company who allegedly caused your injuries. These laws that terminate liability against a defendant are called statutes of limitation. The way to protect a statute of limitation and your claim to recover for injuries you may have suffered is to either:

1. Settle your claim with the person who caused your injuries, or that person’s insurance carrier prior to the expiration of the applicable limitations period; or,

2. File a lawsuit against the defendant in the appropriate court before the expiration of the relevant statute of limitation.
