Can victims file lawsuits to recover compensation?
While the vast majority of personal injury claims will be settled out of court and with insurance carriers, that is not always the case. If an insurance carrier denies a fair settlement, victims may need to file a lawsuit against the alleged negligent party to recover the compensation they deserve. However, the California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1 states that victims have only two years to file a claim in these cases. After the two-year statute of limitations has expired, victims will likely lose the ability to recover any compensation at all.
Please note that, per California Government Code section 911.2, those who have a claim against a government entity in California have just six months to file an injury claim and that those cases operate under a different set of procedural rules.
What kind of compensation is available for these claims?
California law does not specify a set amount of damages that should be awarded for victims of personal injuries. Rather, compensation is awarded based on the factors related to each particular case. At Walkup, Melodia, Kelly & Schoenberger, we have extensive experience helping clients secure compensation in these cases. This includes an $8.35 million jury verdict for a person injured by a defective artificial hip and a $7.75 million settlement for injuries caused by big rig rollover.
