Statute of Limitations for Premises Liability
Any filing deadlines for a case will be determined by the personal injury statute of limitations for premises liability in the state that has jurisdiction over the matter. California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1 sets a two year deadline for the filing of “An action for… injury to, or for the death of, an individual caused by the wrongful act or neglect of another.”
Prior to filing a lawsuit, it is important to have a thorough evaluation of the facts of the incident. Liability, damages, and the ability to collect on any foreseeable judgment (i.e. are there any insurance policies that may provide coverage) must be considered.
