About Accidents and Injuries in San Pedro, CA 

San Pedro is a neighborhood located in the City of Los Angeles in California. San Pedro was formerly a city of its own. However, in 1909, it was consolidated with the city of Los Angeles. The neighborhood consists of a community that is largely working class. It offers residents a mix of urban and suburban living with access to a wide variety of restaurants, parks, and coffee shops. The schools in the area are considered to be above average. 

According to a report by the Insurance Institute for Higher Safety, the state of California leads the nation in the number of fatal accidents. Los Angeles is the largest and most populous city in California. The risk of being involved in an accident is therefore quite high in Los Angeles and San Pedro.

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury Law in San Pedro

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim for an accident in San Pedro?

If you have been injured in an accident that was caused by another party, you will have 2 years within which to file a personal injury claim. The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in San Pedro begins from the date of the accident. If you fail to file your claim within this period, you may not be able to seek compensation for your accident.

There are exceptions to the statute of limitations. For example, if you are filing a personal injury claim against a government agency, the period in which you should file your claim is much shorter. It is therefore important to consult an experienced San Pedro personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident. Your attorney will work to ensure that you don’t miss out on the compensation you rightly deserve.

Is there a cap on the amount I can recover as damages for a personal injury lawsuit?

The state of California does not place a cap on economic damages incurred by accident victims. You can therefore recover to the fullest extent for your economic damages. However, the state places a cap on the non-economic damages recoverable in a medical malpractice case. You can only recover up to $250,000 for non-economic damages in these cases.

If you’re wondering how much your case is worth and how much you can recover, contact the Law Offices of Preston Easley to schedule a free consultation with an experienced accident attorney in San Pedro, CA. We’ll help you estimate the value of your case and fight to recover maximum compensation.
