California Statute of Limitations
Statutes of limitations in California courts vary depending on the individual case. A statute of limitation is the time limit from when an injury or damages took place that an individual or party has to file a suit in the court of law. These statutes are all different and have varying timeframes depending on the type of case. For example, a medical malpractice suit has a statute of limitation of three years from the date of injury or one year from the date of discovery while the statute for a wrongful death case is two years. Of course, there are exceptions and different stipulations depending on specific case circumstances.
