Whenever you prepare to file a lawsuit in California for a personal injury claim for a minor, you have a different time frame to work with than if you were filing suit on behalf of
an adult. When filing against an adult, you have up to two years from the wrongful act before you no longer have any legal right for recourse.
When it comes to a representing the interest of a minor
(under the age of 18) in California, attorneys have two years from the date of said “minor’s” eighteenth birthday or until the minor’s twentieth birthday to file suit on behalf of the minor. This only pertains to personal injury cases (not med-mal or claims against a government agency). It is always recommended that all clients see an attorney.
Now, when it comes to medical malpractice, the time frames changes. For example, the two-year mark changes to one year from the date the claimant became aware of the incident. Now let’s add some confusion to the foray. If the child is under six years of age, then you have to file within a year of the child’s eighteenth birthday (or eleven years old).
“Robert, Cameron, and his staff are great. From day one, the expectations were explained and updates were always provided. Robert put me at ease by reassuring me the case would be handled appropriately from beginning to end. I give him and his staff credit for the quick resolve to my case.”
