      Fatal Accidents

      As any experienced personal injury attorney will tell you, fatal accidents are the most disconcerting to handle. In these cases, someone lost their life due to the negligence or recklessness of another driver. When the victim is clearly not at fault, the family may be able to be compensated by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Statistics show that most fatal accidents are caused by:

       

      • Road Construction
      • Driving At High Rates Of Speed
      • Aggressive Driving
      • Operating A Vehicle In A Careless Manner

        Limitations On Filing A Claim

        California law allows people injured in an accident a certain period of time in which to file a claim for compensation. At this time, the statute of limitations in California state a claim must be filed:
         

        • 3 Years After An Accident For Damage To Property
        • 2 Years From The Date Of The Accident For Personal Injury
        • While this seems fairly straightforward, it can often be difficult to know your rights in these cases. For this reason, it is best to consult a Los Angeles car accident lawyer to be sure you do not lose the right to file a lawsuit.
