The personal injury attorneys of Johnston Law Group are here to help. Our staff is highly empathetic to the plight of the injured and firmly believes the parties responsible should be held accountable.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?
According to the California Code of Civil Procedure, section 335.1 the statute of limitations in California is two years. This means you have two years to file a personal injury claim. However, this law does have exceptions so it’s important to talk to an attorney about the details of your case.
Know Who You Are Fighting
In most personal injury lawsuits, the real battle is with the defendant's insurance company. Insurance providers are the ones who will have to shell out money for their insured's negligence, and they do all in their power to mitigate responsibility wherever possible.
The parties responsible for compensating an injury victim vary depending on the type of accident:
- Car accidents - Since California law requires everyone to have car insurance, they will usually be the ones defending their insured from a lawsuit. These companies have become very experienced in fighting these claims, and your attorney will need to be equally experienced in working around their usual defense strategies.
- Slip and falls - Depending on where the fall happened, these accidents are usually covered by homeowner's or premise liability insurance.
- Truck accidents - Collisions with trucks come with an entire set of factors not seen with car accidents. In these accidents the driver, their employer, and even the mechanic could be held liable. You will need an attorney prepared to fight multiple companies for maximum compensation.
- Product liability - Being injured by an appliance or medical device could put you at odds with anyone who was involved in manufacturing or distributing the product. Do not be intimidated by the size of the opposition, people can and do win against these big corporations with the help of capable legal counselors.
