What is the Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in California?
According to the California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1 the statute of limitations in the state of California is two years. The statute of limitations is a law which limits how long injury victims have to file a claim before they lose their legal right to do so. This law does have exceptions so it’s important to speak to an experienced attorney about the specifics of you case as soon as you can.
What Are the 3 Types of Damages?
Damages can be categorized into three groups: economic, non-economic, and punitive:
- Economic – This helps victims recover from financial loss such as loss of income, medical expenses, etc.
- Non-economic – This helps victims recover from pain and suffering. Assigning a monetary value to non-economic damages is not as easy, but it aims to compensate for mental distress, loss of reputation, etc.
- Punitive – Punitive damages are a way to punish the one who is at fault. It defines the defendant’s actions as criminal conduct.
Who Pays Damages If Two Parties Are Responsible?
If a plaintiff is injured by 2 (or more) defendants, they can recover compensation from all defendants, which is called joint and several liability. The percentage of non-economic damages (like pain and suffering) could still be collected from each defendant.
Joint and several liability applies to:
- medical expenses;
- property damage;
- loss of income; and
- loss of earning capacity.
Did you know that if you are injured in an accident due to negligence, you will need to file a personal injury claim in order to receive compensation? This process can be complicated and overwhelming.
Eliot Reiner, APLC understands the nuances and intricacies of injury lawsuits and settlements and is dedicated to helping you achieve maximum compensation for your injuries. There are a number of factors that are important to notate after an injury to ensure a fair payout:
- Watch what you say after an accident. Even if you think you are the one at fault, don’t admit any mistakes. There may be factors of the accident that you are unaware of, and this could help you maximize your compensation.
- Report your accident to your insurance company. You are required by law to report your accident to your insurance company, but it’s also beneficial to your compensation that you report an accident in a timely manner. Additionally, insurance companies have a duty to protect you, and if you report it sooner, they may be able to help with financial support for repairs or medical bills.
- File a claim within the statute of limitations. Starting from the date of an accident, you have a certain amount of time to file a claim for your injuries. The time limit for a statute of limitations varies in each state, but If you don’t start your claim before this date, the insurance company has no obligation to help you settle your case.
- Take good documentation of your accident. As time passes after an injury due to negligence, you will start to collect all kinds of paperwork for medical bills and repairs, if necessary. Keeping all of these documents organized and accessible will help you prove negligence and receive maximum compensation for your claim.
- Write a professional demand letter. It’s important to communicate any of your requests for compensation in writing so that there is no wiggle room when the insurance company is making their decision. For examples on what a demand letter entails, contact our injury lawyer in Sacramento for assistance!

“When an insurance company offers a client a half million dollars, I have to say ‘No’ and demand the full million dollars that my client is entitled to! When money is involved, nothing is easy. So I work very hard, and slide with my spikes up."
