While car accidents and motorcycle accidents fall under the broad category of "personal injury," there are numerous other incidents that fall into this category as well. Examples of injury cases in which we have advocated for victims include dog attacks, industrial accidents, school injuries, accidents occurring on commercial properties like grocery stores or restaurants, injuries sustained during sports or recreational activities, cases involving sexual assault, and instances of battery. Essentially, any situation where an individual sustains an injury could potentially lead to a personal injury case, and our San Marcos personal injury lawyers have extensive experience in handling such cases.

Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer in San Marcos Before the Statute of Limitation Expires

In California, the statute of limitations for individuals seeking to file a personal injury claim is typically two years from the date of the injury-causing incident. However, it's important to note that if the negligence was committed by a governmental entity (e.g., an injury on a public school campus or government property), the statute of limitations may be significantly shorter, typically six months. Failing to initiate a claim or file a lawsuit within the stipulated statutory period against a public entity defendant could result in the forfeiture of the right to bring a personal injury claim. Therefore, it is advisable to consult with a San Marcos personal injury lawyer as early as possible to safeguard the available evidence and confirm the relevant statutory limitations.

When the case involves a death, it is important for family members to understand how the statute of limitations works for wrongful death claims. Except for cases involving governmental entities, family members who wish to file a wrongful death claim after a loved one dies in any personal injury incident also have two years from the date of the individual’s death to file a claim or lawsuit.
