What You Should Know About Car Accidents
If you have been involved in an auto accident and have suffered injuries, whether immediately or sometime after, you have a limited amount of time to seek compensation under the law. In California, the deadline for pursuing legal action in an auto-related accident is typically two years if the defendant is a person or a company / corporation. It’s called statute of limitations and it is very important you speak with an experienced car accident lawyer to learn about your rights to receive just compensation.
If you don’t take action during this period of time, you might well be unable to go forward with a claim. You need to be aware that sometimes a one year statute or even a six month statute may apply to your case. While this might sound like plenty of time, it is often what is done immediately after the accident that determine the outcome of an injury case. Every day counts and the longer you wait, the more difficult your case might be to pursue. Many insurance companies are counting on you not knowing enough about the law, how to adequately protect yourself, and to obtain an appropriate recovery. You don’t want to wait and you should consider talking to a seasoned top-notch law firm sooner than later.
