California lies on the western coast of the United States, situated near Oregon, Nevada, Arizona, and Baja. It is the third-largest state in the country by area. It is also the most populated. More than 39.5 million people call this place home. Sacramento is the state’s capital and the sixth-largest city in the state. The population reached 525,398 in 2021.
The significant size of California offers climates ranging from polar to subtropical, although most of the state has a Mediterranean climate. The coast often has fog during the summer, created by the cool current in the Pacific. Hot summers and cold winters are typical the farther inland you go.
The variety in weather, terrain, and activities makes California a popular tourist attraction. Many mountainous regions allow residents and visitors to ski in the winter and hike in the summer. The Pacific Ocean runs along the entire western coast of the state, providing a range of fun activities, including surfing and swimming.
Two of the biggest cities, Hollywood and Los Angeles, are home to some major film studios, including Warner Bros and Disney. They are hubs for the entertainment industry. In fact, four broadcast networks, NBC, ABC, Fox, and CBS, have production facilities in the state. You can also find many successful technology companies like Google, Apple, and Facebook.
One of the best decisions you can make after suffering an injury is to hire a lawyer. You likely don’t know state laws and legal procedures for seeking compensation after an accident. If you attempt to handle your case alone, you could walk away without the money you need to pay for the medical care required for you to heal.

Whether you were in a truck accident, fell on someone’s property, or were involved in a work-related accident, you likely sustained physical injuries. They can range in severity depending on the circumstances. The most common include:
Some accidents result in life-threatening injuries and fatalities. The cost of medical treatment can become a significant financial burden and even lead to debt. The negligent party responsible for the accident should be the one to pay if they were entirely to blame for what happened.
Whether you choose to file an insurance claim or lawsuit, you could pursue compensation to cover the losses you suffered. Losses fall under two main categories: economic and noneconomic.
Economic losses are the expenses resulting from an injury, such as:
Noneconomic damages are intangible losses, such as:
You might also be able to pursue exemplary damages when you file a lawsuit. Instead of compensating you for your losses, this award punishes the defendant for their actions and is meant to deter similar behavior in the future. The court will require clear and convincing evidence of the at-fault party’s malice, fraud, or oppression to award you with exemplary damages.
Anyone could suffer an injury or death in any situation. One of the most common causes of fatalities in California is motor vehicle accidents.
According to statistics, 3,316 fatal traffic-related accidents occurred in 2019 and caused 3,606 deaths. Of these fatalities:
A high number of nonfatal occupational injuries occur in California. There were 483,300 recordable cases in 2019 in all industries. A total of 451 fatal injuries occurred the same year due to:
State law requires you to follow a statute of limitations if you want to sue someone for the injury you suffered. This is the specific timeframe in which you can initiate a personal injury lawsuit. There is a two-year statute of limitations for most accidents resulting in injury or death. That means you must file your lawsuit within two years of the date of your injury.
Medical malpractice cases have a three-year statute of limitations. You have to initiate the lawsuit within three years from the date of the incident. However, if you didn’t discover medical malpractice took place until later, you would have one year from the date you knew or should have reasonably known about the injury.
There is a three-year statute of limitations for property damage cases. For example, if there were damage to your car during a traffic-related accident, you would have to file suit within three years to compensate for the cost of repairs.
If you’re pursuing compensation from a governmental agency or employee, you must file your lawsuit within six months from the date of the accident.
