To pursue a personal injury claim against LAUSD, you will have a short 6-month-period (180 days) to file a claim. This means that you will only have 6 months after the date of harm/injury to file the claim with the school district. This 6-month time limit is established on California law. It is possible that the school district will deny your claim. After a denied claim, claimants will have 2 years to file a personal injury claim in civil court.
