California law dictates the time frame in which a lawsuit can be brought.
If you hire a lawyer to bring a claim on your behalf, she must do so in the required time period. If your lawyer waits too long and misses the deadline, this is commonly known as missing the statute of limitations. If your lawyer missed your statute of limitations, your claim is forever barred, but you may have a case against your lawyer for legal malpractice. If you think your lawyer may have missed filing your case by the deadline, contact us for a free consultation, and our trained lawyers can help you evaluate your case.
