There are millions of cars traveling on the interstates, highways, and roads in California. Unfortunately, this comes with a high rate of traffic collisions for the state.

What is the Statute of Limitations in a California Car Accident?
After a car accident, it may take time to get your thoughts together and even realize that you should sue. You do, however, have a time limit to sue after a car accident in California. In this state, the time limit for filing a lawsuit for compensation is two years according to the California Code of Civil Procedure Section 335.1. That includes the time limit set on you to go to court and file a lawsuit due to the harm or loss. The time limit begins at the date that the accident occurs.
If anyone was injured in the car accident, whether it was the driver, a passenger, or a pedestrian, they will need to get their lawsuit filed within two years from the date that the accident took place.
