Does California Have a Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims?

Personal injury claims are subject to a statute of limitations in most states. California has a standard deadline of two years for filing the majority of personal injury case types. There are some exceptions to this rule (e.g. government claims and suits against public entities), but generally you have two full years after the accident or injury occurred to file a personal injury claim. However, it’s always recommended that injured victims contact Dordulian Law Group immediately after an accident to begin the claims filing process.

To avoid having your claim ineligible due to missing the two-year deadline, most personal injury claims should be filed as soon as your medical care/treatment is undergone. It is important to contact a DLG Glendale personal injury & accident lawyer as soon as you can. We will work with you to determine the most effective strategy and plan for your specific case.

Outcomes in Personal Injury Lawsuits

A personal injury lawsuit can typically have two possible outcomes:

  • A formal lawsuit may be filed in some cases. In a formal lawsuit, the plaintiff (also called the claimant) files a civil complaint. The defendant is then named. The complaint will usually include an allegation that the defendant acted in a reckless or harmful manner, which led to the injury.
  • Informal settlements (pre-litigation settlements) are a second possible general outcome for a personal injury case. Personal injury cases are most likely to end in this way, especially if a Glendale personal injuries attorney is involved. In this process, attorneys and insurance companies who represent both sides negotiate back and forth to reach a resolution. After the negotiations, a written agreement will be signed by the plaintiff where they agree not to file any further legal claims against defendants for the matter at hand. This is usually the point at which a financial award is decided.

What Damages Can I Recover in a Glendale Personal Injury Cash Settlement?

The goal of a personal injury lawsuit is to recover compensation for all damages (economic or non-economic) that were caused by your accident. Depending on the details of your claim, you may be entitled different types of damages.

In personal injury cases, there are typically four types of damages.

  • Punitive damages: Although they are rare and difficult to obtain in California, there is no limit on the amount of such damages. Punitive damages can only be awarded if certain requirements are met. Your Glendale personal injuries lawyer must show that the negligent party was reckless or careless. DLG will seek punitive damages in all applicable cases.
  • Special damages: This includes things like rent or relocation expenses, car payments, and much more. The case must meet certain criteria to recover special damages. This type of damage is usually awarded when the injured party cannot return to work or suffers financial hardship.
  • Monetary damages: These types of damages are most commonly recovered in personal injury claims, including compensation for medical costs, property damage and other tangible losses.
  • Wrongful death damages: These types of damages are pursued in tragic cases where a death was caused due to someone’s negligence. These damages are awarded when the victim does not survive an accident, and the family sues the responsible party. The family may be entitled to compensation for funeral costs, medical expenses, loss of consortium, loss of affection, and more.

Depending on the specifics of your case, you may be eligible to receive different types of damages in your cash settlement. Call a Glendale personal injury lawyer at Dordulian Law Group today via 866-GO-SEE-SAM to discuss your case.

How Long Does it Take to Settle a Personal Injury Claim?

There is no fixed time limit for settling your claim. Each case is different, and one with minimal injuries and clear liability may be resolved in a matter of weeks or months (while another more complex case with catastrophic injuries could take years). The time it takes to reach a settlement or verdict depends on the details of the case and the willingness of the party at fault to negotiate. A formal lawsuit could lead to a court trial which will likely lengthen the time it takes for you to make your claim – but our aggressive team of trial lawyers is prepared for all scenarios.

At Dordulian Law Group, we will always strive to get your case resolved as quickly as possible. However, we won’t settle for anything less than the maximum financial compensation you deserve. We are also always ready and ale to go to court – every case is prepared for trial because our team is made up of experienced trial attorneys (not simply attorneys who issue demand letters without ever setting foot in a courtroom). We will provide you with an estimate for the time it might take for your case to be resolved based on the facts surrounding the incident.

You will receive a check once a settlement is reached or a verdict has been rendered with your DLG Glendale personal injuries lawyer. This usually happens shortly after the settlement offer is accepted. You will need to sign a release once you have made a decision. This is so that the insurance company, or the party at fault can issue the check. This release states that you won’t pursue any additional legal action against anyone related to the accident or injury.

The insurance company will send the check to your Glendale personal injury attorney. The check will then be deposited into a trust and you will receive a check from the attorney shortly after. Your DLG Glendale personal injuries attorney will fight for you to receive the maximum compensation that you deserve.

Can the Insurance Company Handle My Personal Injury Claim or Do I Need a Lawyer?

The type of injury or accident may determine whether your insurance company can handle the claim. But because it is not typically clear if allowing your insurance company to handle the claim is in your best interest, consulting with a DLG personal injury attorney is always recommended. Insurance companies are in business to make money, and they will do anything they can to avoid paying out more than necessary – even for legitimate and serious personal injuries. Insurance companies are not always looking out for the injured victim’s best interests. Your carrier may not even be on your side (although a claims adjuster may seem cordial and supportive when speaking on the phone),

You may be offered the minimum amount of compensation if you choose to represent yourself rather than hiring a private attorney. Dordulian Law Group (DLG) recommends that you speak to an attorney from our team before making any statements to insurance investigators about your accident.
