How Long Will I Have to File My Injury Claim?

Were you injured in an accident caused by another person's negligence or carelessness? If so, you may be curious as to how long you have to file a personal injury claim. Under state law, except for government claims which require a shorter period of time (in most cases 6 months), an individual has two years to file a claim for injuries or death caused by another's negligent or wrongful actions. While having additional time to file a claim can be beneficial, waiting to file an injury claim is not advised.

It is much easier to gather evidence and locate witnesses who can help confirm your statements immediately following the accident than it is to track down the information necessary to prove liability at a later date. In any personal injury case, we recommend that you consult an attorney as soon as possible. A lawyer from our firm will help you determine if you have a valid case, and then work with you closely to guide you through the entire claims process.

The sooner you retain legal counsel, the more likely you are to recover damages commensurate with your injuries. We realize the days, months and years following an accident can sometimes be quite difficult. In many cases, an accident victim may not even realize the full extent of his or her injuries until a later date. It is for this reason that you must waste no time in discussing your case with a San Jose personal injury attorney.
