If your accident involved a bus owned by a local municipality, county, or state agency, unique rules and procedures may apply. This is due to sovereign immunity, a legal doctrine that can restrict claims against the government and place additional requirements on plaintiffs.
In California, sovereign immunity can make for added complexities in personal injury cases. This includes the requirement that victims file a Notice of Claim no later than 6 months from the date of the accident, even though the statute of limitations in most personal injury cases is 2 years from the date of injury. If no notice is submitted within 6 months, victims may lose their right to file a claim.
Our attorneys can help you assess whether sovereign immunity applies in your bus accident case and how we may be able to assist in litigating your claim against a government entity.
