Dog/Animal Attacks

Dog and Animal Attacks

Each state has a statute of limitations that places a deadline on personal injury lawsuits filed in the state's civil court system. California's statute of limitations on personal injury cases is two years, which may be extended for children to age 20. Since a claim for dog bite injuries would be considered a personal injury lawsuit, this means that the injured person has two years after the bite occurs to file the case in court in order to preserve their rights.
