Statute of Limitations

Southern California Law

A California law establishing the time limit within which a lawsuit must be brought is called a statute of limitation. Different types of cases have different statutes of limitation.

Knowing which statute of limitation applies under California law is critical, since if a lawsuit is not brought within the time limit that applies to the case, the right to sue and recover damages is forever lost. The statute of limitations for a lawsuit in Southern California is usually relatively short and subject to a number of factors.

Statute of Limitation Exceptions

There are also different exceptions that may apply for each type of case, which may extend the statute of limitations. Of course, regardless of the possible availability of an exception, it is always beneficial to bring a lawsuit as soon as it is practical to do so, since the availability (and memory) of witnesses to an accident and related physical evidence is much greater shortly after an accident than after years have passed.

It is critical that you contact an attorney immediately after suffering any injury so that the appropriate statute of limitations can be determined.

At the Southern California Law Offices of Doan Law Firm, we make sure to explore all aspects of your case as soon as possible to ensure that no claims are lost as a result of untimely action.
