For 20 years, our law firm has represented the people of San Marcos and North County in personal injury matters including car and motorcycle accidents, work site injuries, slip and fall injuries, dog bites, uninsured motorist claims, nursing home abuse and neglect, and any other case where someone suffers injury due to the negligence of another.
While car and motorcycle accidents fall under the umbrella of “personal injury,” there are many other types of cases that do as well. Some examples of injury cases where we have represented victims include dog bites, industrial accidents, falls on commercial property such as grocery stores or restaurants, injuries involving sports or other recreational activities, sexual assault, and cases involving battery. Any event where a person is injured could lead to a personal injury case, and the injury lawyers in our San Marcos law firm have handled many.

In California, the statute of limitations for a person who wants to bring a claim for personal injuries is usually two years from the date of the injury-producing event. It can be different, if the negligence was committed by a governmental entity (e.g. injury on public school campus or other government property), then the statute of limitations will likely be much shorter (six months). If an injured person fails to file claim or a lawsuit within the proscribed statutory period, the right to bring a personal injury claim might be lost forever. Accordingly, it is always a good idea to consult with a San Marcos injury as early as possible, to preserve the available evidence and verify the relevant statutory of 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.Contact a San Marcos Accident/Injury Attorney at Walton Law Firm
