Specific Civil Actions
The following periods symbolize a smallish sample of the statutory restrictions spans in California. Additionally, there might be an exception to the normal restrictions period that applies to any given scenario. This list is provided by way of example. If you want to know how the statute of limitations applies into a special situation, you should verify the statutory period of time and its relevance to your scenario with a qualified California attorney.
Professional Malpractice: Legal malpractice, 1 year from date of discovery, to a upper limit of four years from your date of the wrongful action. Medical negligence, 3 years from your date of the harm, or one-year from the date the complainant discovers or fairly should have found the trauma, whichever happens first. The statute of limitations does not start to run until the plaintiff finds, or should have discovered, the object, if the health-related malpractice measures is based upon the presence of a foreign thing uncovered inside the complainant’s human anatomy. The periods of limitation for medical malpractice apply to minors six years of age and elderly.
