In California, the statute of limitations for lawsuits over personal injuries arising out of a car accident is two years.
This is the same timeline for a standard personal injury lawsuit in California.
California Code of Civil Procedure Section 335.1 states that an individual has two years to file “an action for...injury to, or for the death of, an individual caused by the wrongful act or neglect of another.”
If you don't file a lawsuit within two years of the date of your accident, a court will most likely deny your claim, and you will forever lose your chance to recoup any monetary damages to compensate you for your injuries.
In addition, certain other relevant statutes of limitations may apply depending on the specifics of your accident, including whether government agency was involved, or whether you are bringing a wrongful death claim on behalf of a deceased family member.
