5 years ago, I was in a vehicular accident which resulted in the damage of a telephone pole (property of SMUD). Prior to the accident, I began making payments for the damage. However, it has yet to be paid in full, and the debt is still owed. Today, I was served papers stating that I was being sued for failute to pay off my debt. I have been doing some research into time-barred debts & the statute of limitations. I have learned that in the state of CA, the statute of limitations ranges between 2-4 years depending on the category of debt (oral, written, promissary, open). I unDerstand that the debt is still my responsibility. However, being that the accident occured more than 5 years ago, does this guarantee that there will be no judgement made against me?
