There are some exceptions to the statute of limitations. For example, the deadline is much shorter when filing a claim against a government agency. It is therefore best to get started with your personal injury claim as soon as possible. Contact The Law Offices of Preston Easley to consult with an experienced Los Angeles personal injury lawyer.
