Who Can File a Personal Injury Claim?
In a personal injury claim, the claimant (or plaintiff) must prove that another party owed them a standard of care, that the responsible party violated that standard of care, and that the violation caused the claimant’s injury (or injuries).
In a bus accident, for example, the standard of care owed to you by the bus driver and the bus company includes safe driving and a properly maintained vehicle. If the bus driver was speeding and crashed into another vehicle as a result of recklessness, the driver (and possibly the bus company) breached their duty of care to you as a far-paying passenger.

Each state has its own statute of limitations specifying how long claimants have to pursue legal action. Once a statute of limitations passes, a plaintiff is no longer able to pursue damages in a lawsuit. This is why we recommend accident victims contact an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as they are able to ensure that their claim eligibility does not expire.
The California statute of limitations generally grants residents two years from the date of the accident that caused the injury to file a personal injury claim. However, in certain circumstances, the statute of limitation can be extended if delayed discovery applies.
Delayed discovery allows for a plaintiff to have a longer statute of limitations if they either did not know of facts that would have caused them to suspect that they were harmed by another party’s wrongful conduct; or that a thorough investigation would not have revealed that a product or situation caused harm.
In delayed discovery cases, a lawsuit may be filed after was (or should have been) “discovered.” The Zantac cancer litigation is a good example of when delayed discovery applies to a personal injury; many of our clients were injured years before the alleged dangers of the drug were publicized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
