How long do I have to file a pedestrian injury claim in California?


A young lady came to my office after she had been injured as a pedestrian by a vehicle and she wanted to know how long she had to file her claim.Pedestrian Injury Statute of Limitations Generally, in California, for personal injury actions, you have two years to file a claim. That is the general rule for all personal injury claims, including those as a pedestrian. The only exception to that would be if you are having to make a claim against a governmental entity, that could be perhaps the city employee who’s driving a vehicle and they hit you; that would be considered a case against the government and in that situation, you would only have six months to file a claim.
