If you or a loved one have been in an accident and are suffering hardships as a result of someone else’s negligent driving, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries. California has laws put in place to protect victims of negligence, through the means of fair reimbursement. However, California’s statute of limitation states that if you want to file a claim against someone you must do so within two years from the date of the accident, this window is heavily reduced to six months if you plan on pursuing legal action against the state or any other government entity.
