Personal Injury Claims In Riverside County, California
California has established a standard timetable of 2 years to file civil claims against a negligent party in brain injury cases since many symptoms take months or even years to fully manifest. This means that if your brain injury worsens as time goes on, you may still have the chance to file a legal claim and collect damages. This statute limitation time period begins at the time of awareness of the injury, so it is important to obtain a medical evaluation as soon as possible following an accident or injury.
