What To Do After a Car Accident
After an accident, the first priority should be to ensure that you and
anyone involved is not hurt. Once that is done, do the following:
- Photograph the scene as well as any damage or injuries
- Gather as many eyewitness accounts as possible
- Contact the police to fill out a report, if necessary
- Exchange insurance information with all parties involved
- Contact your insurance company to inform them of your accident
- Reach out to a car accident attorney near you
What Is the California Statute of Limitations for Car Accidents?
Personal Injury Lawsuits: The California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1 states that individuals
may file a personal injury lawsuit for their car accident up to 2 years
following the date of their accident. If you attempt to file your lawsuit
after the 2 years have lapsed, your case will most likely be thrown out.
Vehicle Damage Lawsuits: If you choose to file a lawsuit over property damage alone, rather than
personal injury, California Civil Procedure 338 allows you to file a lawsuit
for up to 3 years after the date of your accident.
