When It Happens…
As unlikely as these scenarios may seem, they are all common causes of personal injuries in the Orange County area. Car accidents, slips, falls and medical mishaps are only a few examples of personal injuries that occur each year. Often, these accidents can lead to serious injuries that may leave you with high medical bills and prevent you from being able to work. If you have the misfortune to suffer a mishap like any of the ones mentioned above, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and inconvenience.

California Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Cases
You should be aware that California state law has a time limit you must meet to file a personal injury claim. According to Sections 335.1 and 340 of the California Code of Civil Procedure, victims of personal injuries must file a lawsuit within two years of the date the injury occurred.
The law does allow for an exception to this rule for harms that manifested sometime after your accident. You will have to provide medical records to prove that the harm was discovered much later after the accident. In such cases, you will have up to two years from the time the injury was discovered to file your claim.

Recovering the Damages You Deserve
If someone else is to blame for your injuries, you have the right to seek compensation for the full amount of damages you've suffered. These damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, as well as pain and suffering. You must bring forth your claim within one year of the accident date. Not filing your case within one year will bar you from recovery.
