A Personal Injury Claim Isn’t a Personal Injury Lawsuit
Don’t be confused. A personal injury claim isn’t a personal injury lawsuit. Although the goal of each is to obtain compensation for injuries and damages suffered, a claim is a mere request for compensation that doesn’t have carry any consequences if it’s ignored. A personal injury lawsuit can be ignored too, but if the court has jurisdiction over the defendant, a default judgment can be entered, and the defendant can be compelled to compensate the big rig accident victim without a trial of any kind.
The California Statute of Limitations for Big Rig Collision Claims
Each state has its own statute of limitations in personal injury cases that operates as a deadline for when a lawsuit must be filed by. The general rule in California is that the personal injury statute of limitations expires two years after the date of the accident. If the lawsuit is brought beyond that date, it’s likely to be dismissed. That’s why you shouldn’t sit on a personal injury claim for too long. You don’t want to become a victim a victim for a second time with the statute of limitations being used against you.
