what are the time limitations for suing another individual on my own, who's domestic violence/sexual abuse had caused me long term pain and suffering?
In California the ordinary statute of limitations for perosnal injury is two (2) years from the date of injury, there are some modifications for cases like medical malpractice, etc.
If you can show the claim is a result of Domestic Violence, then the claim period is three (3) years.
i would not recommend suing on your own, get a lawyer and do it the right way, and maximize your rights of recovery.
