Wrongful Death Statute of Limitations
The statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim in California depends on the type of event that caused injury. Most wrongful death claims must be filed within two years, but some medical malpractice wrongful death claims must be filed within one year. Additional exceptions are made when a claim is against a government entity or when the victim is a minor. Mickey Fine will assess your claim for free and discuss all of your options during your initial consultation.
