Statute of Limitations for Catastrophic Injury Cases in Los Angeles

In Los Angeles, the Statute of Limitations for catastrophic injury cases typically gives the injured party two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit. However, there are some exceptions to this time limit. For instance, if the injured party is a minor at the time of the injury, the Statute of Limitations may be extended until they reach the age of 18.

If the injury was not immediately apparent, the Statute of Limitations may be extended based on the discovery rule, which allows the accident victim to file a claim for compensation within two years from the date they discovered or should have reasonably discovered the injury.

Other exceptions may apply. Consult with our dedicated personal injury lawyers in Los Angeles if you have questions about whether an exception may apply to your specific situation.
