What Is the Time Limitation for Filing a Personal Injury Claim in California?

In California, victims generally have between six months to two years from the date of the injury to file an action. 

However, the time limit may be shortened or lengthened depending on particular circumstances and the entities involved.

Therefore, plaintiffs are advised to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to make sure their rights are properly protected.
