Torts are harm to a person’s body or mind.
Most of all, these are the cases we help with. Severe injuries can result in long-term issues. Cases can also include soft tissue damage. And that can affect mobility or ability to work. In any event, significant mental distress can stay with you, the plaintiff, for life.

Local Marina del Rey Negligence Attorneys
Marina del Rey is an unincorporated seaside community in So Cal. In 2010 it had 8,866 residents. But expansion since then has increased traffic accidents.
Boating and dockside accidents make MDR different.
In fact, MDR is the largest man-made small craft harbor in California.
So are a lot of people on foot perusing. And that means quite a few crosswalk accidents take place along the docks.
Naturally, alcohol plays a role in boaters crashing or sinking. The city has 19 marinas and has the capacity for 5,300 boats.
The potential for tripping and falling while boarding in great.
This fighting lawyer enjoys the Water Taxi service. But the threat of unsupervised children drowning is real.
Where are the Many Places You Could Be Injured in the Marina?
Accidents are common in Marina del Rey. The city has become famous for hit and run accidents. Popular parks such as Mother’s Beach next to the crowded Cheesecake Factory™, with its valet parking exist.

How Long Do I have to File a Legal Claim?
Making sure that you file before the statute of limitations is vital. In most cases, it is less than two years from the accident or death.
But if it is a claim against a government agency, the limit is 6 months.
If the statute of limitations has run out, the injured party cannot file. So the plaintiff loses.
You can see it is unwise to wait for an extended period. Better to consult an injury attorney.
Because by waiting:
Evidence can deteriorate
Witness memories can fade.
