What Is Personal Injury Law?
Personal injury law covers a wide variety of legal issues surrounding personal injuries. Whenever you suffer injury at the fault of another person, you have a legal right to compensation for your damages. Most personal injury claims involve accidents where a person’s negligent behavior caused the incident, leading to injuries.
Depending on the circumstances of a personal injury case, different laws can apply. To ensure that you fully understand what factors will influence your case, you need the help of an experienced Sacramento personal injury lawyer.

California Personal Injury Laws
Like other states, California has several laws that can impact the outcome of a personal injury claim. The statute of limitations is one of the most important, as it sets the timeline for when you can file a successful personal injury claim. For most, California law sets the statute of limitations at two years from the date of injury. Claims against a government agency have a statute of limitations of six months. If you fail to file your claim before these deadlines, you will likely lose your right to compensation.
When it comes to car accidents, motorcycle accidents, and other types of accidents, California’s shared fault laws apply. Even if you can successfully prove the other party was liable for your injuries, you can receive reduced compensation if you were also at fault for the accident. Under pure comparative negligence, a court will reduce your final compensation amount by the percentage you contributed to the accident that caused your injuries.
