Dog bite from riding a bike in Mothers Beach, Marina del Rey
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.
  • MDR is the largest human-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 remains great.

This fighting lawyer enjoys the Water Taxi service. But the threat of unsupervised children drowning is real.

The roadways leading to these attractions include the Marina Expressway. And it includes State Route 90. Since the road expansion, Admiralty Way is always congested. And this leads to accidents.

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 six 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.

Sometimes the statute may be tolled. Toxic exposure cases are an example. But the only way to know is from top personal injury attorneys. However, any delay could substantially harm your chances.
