California Statute of Limitations in Wrongful Death Claims

The statute of limitations to file a wrongful death lawsuit in California is two years. That timeline will start to run two years from the date of the loved one’s death. If you don’t file your lawsuit within this timeframe, you could lose the right to file a lawsuit in that case. That means you will lose the right to any recovery compensation for the death of a loved one because of the actions of a wrongdoer.
