Important Information: Statute of Limitations

The "Statute of Limitations" (SOL) is a law that sets a strict time limit on when your legal claim or action may be commenced. (Read: filed in Court). After the SOL has expired your legal action (i.e. your lawsuit) is forever barred. There are few exceptions. Very, very few.

In California, the Statute of Limitations for most type of personal injury cases is two (2) years from the date of the incident. There are some exceptions to this rule - but you should never, ever depend on one of the exceptions.

You May Get A Do-Over

On the other hand, if you have missed the statute of limitations with your case - meaning it is longer than two years past when your injury occurred and a lawsuit hasn't been filed - you may still be able to bring a lawsuit under very limited circumstances. Don't depend on this - - call a California Third Party Lawyer today.

Trouble is, there are very few truly good and experienced third party work injury lawyers in California. Make sure the California third party work injury attorney you hire has a history of winning third party work injury cases.
