Statute of Limitations for Assault and Battery Injury Claims – California


Statute of Limitations for Assault and Battery Injury Claims – CaliforniaIndividuals who have sustained injuries due to the intentional acts of assault and battery as well as other acts of violent crime have the right to seek monetary compensation for their losses against all at fault parties. Criminal acts resulting in injury can take place anywhere including nightclubs, in the workplace, at school, in public transportation systems such as buses and trains, and in the home. An important factor in determining the viability of a case is whether the statute of limitations for filing a claim has run its course. Statute of Limitations for Assault and Battery Injury Claims  If the Statute of Limitations has passed before a lawsuit is filed, then your rightful claim is barred permanently. It is vital to seek attorney representation as soon as possible before any statutory deadlines eliminate your right to recovery.

What is the Statute of Limitations has Run – Is there any way I can get out of this. In certain instances California courts will toll a statute (halt the statutory deadline for a period of time). Some common situations where the court will permit a tolling of the statutory period includes.
  • Mental Incapacitation following the injury
  • The injured party is a minor – the statute of limitations will be tolled and will not begin to run until the victims 18th birthday
  • Physical Incapacitation following the injury
  • The injury did not manifest itself until a later time after the act of abuse, battery, or assault took place – under these circumstances the statute of limitations will run from the date where the injured party knew or should have known of the injury
