How Long Do I Have To File A Personal Injury Lawsuit In California?

Karlin & Karlin Injury Attorneys

For most personal injury matters, including car accidents, a person or relative has two years from the date of injury (or date of wrongful death) in which to initiate a case. Exceptions include medical malpractice cases, which generally must be filed one year from the date of injury. Also, claims against a governmental entity, even those affecting minors, must be filed within six months.
