In most personal injury cases, economic damages, such as medical bills and lost wages, are the core elements of the claim. However, many accidents caused by someone else’s negligence also result in pain and suffering, which can adversely affect a victim’s recovery. Damages for pain and suffering, with certain restrictions, are allowed under state law.

No one wants to be involved in a car crash, but with the odds today, it could happen eventually. Even a minor fender-bender with no injuries will completely ruin your day.

A collision with a fully-loaded, 80,000-pound tractor-trailer can cause serious injuries and extensive damage. If someone else caused your accident, you may file a personal injury claim for compensation.

A statute of limitations is a deadline imposed by state law, after which a lawsuit cannot be filed for a particular type of case. Once that period has passed, the claim is forever barred. These time limits are stated in the California Code of Civil Procedure. The statute of limitations for bodily injury in a car accident is two years, the same as for other personal injury matters. If you were not injured in the accident and only want to recover money for damage to your vehicle, the statute of limitations is three years.
