San Diego Wrongful Death FAQs

What is the statute of limitations for wrongful death cases?

After an accident, victims or the families of victims have a limited period of time in which they are able to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. This period of time, known as the statute of limitations, is the only time in which you can successfully file a lawsuit and take legal action. In San Diego, the statue of limitations for wrongful death claims is two years from the person’s death (with the exception of medical malpractice and asbestos-related deaths).
