How long do victims have to file a claim?

Every state is responsible for setting a time limit on how long victims have to file claims against alleged negligent parties after sustaining an injury. Per California Code of Civil Procedure section 335.1, the statute of limitations for these claims in California is two years from the date the injury occurs. Failure to file a claim within this two-year window will likely result in a victim losing the ability to recover any compensation for their losses.
