What is the statute of limitations for bike accidents in San Diego?

The statutory period for a person involved in a bicycle accident to file a claim is 2 years. If the lawsuit to seek damages isn't filed within that period, a judge may deny the claim. There are exemptions to the statutory period, for example, if a person suffered a concussion, and extensions can be granted if injuries from the accident weren't discovered until later. When a minor is involved in a bike accident, he/she may wait up until his/her 20th birthday to file a claim. This is because minors are permitted to file any time up until their 18th birthday, at which point the two-year statutory period begins.
