Common Negligence in Car Accidents

Car accidents are one of the leading causes of sudden injury, and it only takes a momentary lapse in judgment for a severe collision to occur. While not all accidents call for legal action, many are a direct result of driver negligence and deserve to be rectified in favor of injured drivers and passengers.

Common negligence cited in car collisions include:

  • Distracted driving (texting, devices, radio, etc.)
  • Speeding
  • Intoxication (drugs, alcohol, or medications)
  • Reckless driving
  • Failure to signal a turn or lane change
  • Failure to obey traffic signals, signs, and laws
  • Failure to look for/heed other vehicles

What is the Statute of Limitations for Car Accidents in California?

In California, the statute of limitation for car accidents is two years from the date of the accident. This means that a lawsuit for an injury or property damage arising from a car accident must be filed within two years of the date of the incident. After that, legal action can no longer be taken.

If the plaintiff is a minor, the two-year period begins when they reach 18. Additionally, claims may be made within six months when filing a lawsuit against a governmental entity such as the state or county. Car accident victims must understand their rights and be aware of all applicable statute of limitation laws to properly seek legal action for any injury or property damage suffered from an accident.

Many drivers in California carry minimum coverage when it comes to paying damages for accidents that they cause. Often, injury victims must appeal to the negligent driver's insurance provider or their own to ensure that they receive proper compensation following their accident. Our car accident attorney can help navigate this process, powerfully assert your post-accident needs, and give you the best possible chance of moving on from your accident with the restitution you deserve.
