San Bernardino Personal Injury Attorneys

Put 30+ Years of Experience in Your Corner

Suffering a physical and/or emotional injury due to another’s negligent or intentional conduct can have a devastating impact on your life. Civil litigation can be stressful. At Bullard & Powell, our approach is to treat you as the unique person that you are, not just a file. Keeping that in mind, our strategy is to work closely with you to determine your goals and to develop a strategy to achieve the most positive result. We advocate for you both in and outside the courtroom.

At Bullard & Powell, we handle civil litigation matters on a contingency fee basis. As such, we only receive compensation, if we are able to achieve compensation for you. We have helped many injured people obtain payment for their injuries, including payment for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in California?

How long an injured individual has to file a personal injury claim in California is determined by a law called the statute of limitations. According to the California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1, the timeline to file is two years. 

More specifically, this means you have two years from the date your injury occurred to file a personal injury claim, or you risk losing your right to file and pursue compensation altogether.  It’s important to note that there are exceptions that can change this two-year time limit. Some examples of these exceptions include:

  • If you claim is against a government entity
  • If the injury victim is under the age of 18 
  • If the injury victim did not discover their injury right away
  • If the alleged negligent party leaves California before a claim can be filed

The statute of limitations has a big impact on your ability to file a claim so it’s crucial to speak to an experienced San Bernardino personal injury attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as you can.
