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.

What is the deadline to file a case for personal injury in California?

California has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury claims. You must file a lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident for compensation, according to CCP 335.1. You risk getting your case thrown out in court if you miss the deadline.
