Personal injury accidents must be brought within 2 years from the date of the accident to file a civil lawsuit for injury or wrongful death according to California Code of Civil Procedure 335.1. If the date of death is different from the date of the accident or underlying incident, then the time is calculated two years from the date of death.
According to the California Office of Traffic Safety, the statistics regarding automobile, motorcycle, pedestrian and bicycle accidents have risen. Specifically, drunk driving, unrestrained drivers and passengers, lack of safety, drug impaired driving have all increased in California in 2015 and 2016.
