What Is the Statute of Limitations for Car Accidents in California?

According to California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1, the statute of limitations on car accidents in California is two years. If the statute of limitations ends before you file a claim you will almost certainly lose your ability to do so along with your right to recover compensation.

There are, however, some exceptions that can extend this two-year time period so it’s important to speak to an attorney about your case as soon as possible. Some of these exceptions include if your car accident was caused by a government employee, such as a bus driver for example, you only have six months to provide a notice of your claim.

Additionally, if your case includes wrongful death, the statute of limitations "clock" will start the date of your loved one's death, not the date of the accident that led to their fatal injuries, which may be a different date. Lastly, if you would like to file a claim to pursue compensation for damages to your vehicle only, California law gives you three years to do so.

Navigating California's At-Fault Liability Laws

In the event of a car accident, California follows an “at-fault” rule to determine liability. An at-fault rule means that the driver who is responsible for causing an accident is also responsible for paying the resulting damages through their insurance carrier.

This law is straightforward enough for accidents where only one driver is at fault, however, it’s true that most accidents can find both parties at fault in some way, no matter how small.

Examples of “fault” that are easily overlooked include driving slightly about the speed limit or failing to put on a turn signal. In these circumstances, an injured driver can still recover compensation through California’s "pure comparative negligence" law. This law states that any injured party can file a claim against a negligent party but the percentage of responsibility they are found to bear will also be reduced from the overall compensation awarded to them.

For example, if you are found to be 10% at fault for the accident, your total compensation will be reduced by the same amount, 10%. Our experienced attorneys will be happy to answer questions you may have about this complicated area of the law during a free consultation.

Can I File A Car Accident Claim After Insurance Pays in California?

Most insurance companies ensure they include in their settlement offers that no additional compensation beyond the settlement amount, can be collected after an agreement is signed.

If you sign a settlement offer, you will most likely be unable to recover anything else, even if your injuries become more serious in the following weeks and months following your accident, a common occurrence with injuries sustained in a car accident.

If you have been offered a settlement, or if you have already signed one, call Haslerud Law Office, A Professional Corporation today to talk about your case.
