How Long Do I Have to File A Claim?

In California, the statute of limitations to file a personal injury claim is two years. If you fail to file before this deadline you may lose your right to compensation. There are three main exceptions to this rule; if your injuries are not discovered right away, if the injury victim is a minor, or if the defendant left the state before the lawsuit could be filed.

Additionally, California follows a "pure comparative negligence" rule which means that even if you are partially at fault for the accident that led to your injuries you are still eligible to recover compensation. In this situation, however, your total compensation amount will be reduced by your percentage of fault. An attorney can help you navigate complex California law.

What Can I Pursue Compensation for After an Injury?

There are three main categories of compensation, also called damages, available to an injury victim in a personal injury claim, special damages, general damages, and punitive damages. Special damages compensate an injury victim for the financial losses they suffer as a result of an injury, such as medical bills, future medical expenses and the inability to work. Since special damages focus on compensating for financial losses, they are also called economic damages.

General damages get their name from the fact that they compensate an injury victim for all other losses associated with sustaining an injury, most of which are abstract by nature. These losses include pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life and emotional distress. The last type of damages, punitive, is different than the first two in that their main purpose is to punish the defendant. As such punitive damages are not awarded often and are usually reserved for cases where a defendant knew their actions would cause harm but did so anyway.
