In California, claims for injuries caused by a state or local Government Entity such as a city, county or state agency, must be filed within six months of the date of the incident or the right to recovery for injuries may be barred by law. In many cases an individual is unaware that a government entity is involved. It is therefore important that a person receiving injuries a s a result of an accident or healthcare malpractice immediately seek the assistance of legal counsel in order that the matter may be fully investigated and the proper claims made in a timely manner.
