Granite Bay Personal Injury FAQ

What should I do if the other party's insurance company calls me?

Politely decline to speak with the insurance adjuster. Anything you say can be used against you later. If you say something wrong, it could give them the evidence they need to deny your claim. You are not obligated to speak with the other party's insurance company.

How much time is there to file a lawsuit?

California has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury cases. That means you must file a lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident for compensation. You risk getting your case thrown out in court if you miss the deadline.
