Statute of Limitations For Car Accident | Hollywood California Accident Law Firm And Lawyer

Back to blog home

Posted on: August 15, 2013

California Civil Code Section 335.1 holds that, “[a]n action for assault, battery, or injury to, or for the death of, an individual caused by the wrongful act or neglect of another,” is two years.

There are exceptions to the two year statute of limitations, such as if the party you seek to sue is a public entity such as a county, city, state, school, or public transport service, among others, your claim must be made against the public entity within 6 months—and there are additional time restrictions in which to file your lawsuit when the public entity denies your claim.  Another exception is for California medical malpractice.

It is important to consider legal representation as soon as possible after your injury.  Webb & Ord’s attorneys will protect your rights, and can handle any and all communications and negotiations with the insurance companies.  Since your communication with an insurance company could impact your rights and interests, it’s important to seek legal advice prior to communicating with an insurance adjuster, agreeing to a settlement offer, or providing an official statement.

IF WE DO NOT WIN AT TRIAL, YOU DO NOT PAY OUR CONTINGENCY FEE.

We offer free consultations.  Webb & Ord are the leading personal injury attorneys in Hollywood, and located on the corner of Hollywood and Vine—easily accessible by the Los Angeles subway and bus system.  Contact the car accident attorneys at Webb & Ord today for your free consultation.
