Attorney Michael Ehline lived and worked in Marina del Rey starting in year 2002.

Accidents are common in Marina del Rey. The city has become known over the last decades for not-uncommon hit and run accidents. There are also popular parks such as Mother’s Beach operated by the LA County Department of Beahes and Harbors, famous for its harbor viewing areas, picnic tables and pavilions. The roadways leading to these attractions, like the Marina Expressway and State Route 90 commonly become congested, leading to accidents. Some even get around this by taking a fun water taxi.

How Long Do I have to File a Legal Claim?

Making sure that you get in before the statute of limitations is vital. In most cases it is less than one year from the date of accident or death, unless it is a claim against a state or government agency. In these cases, the limit is normally six months.

If the statute of limitations has run out, the injured party will be unable to file a claim. It’s unwise to wait for an extended period to consult an injury attorney due to the fact that evidence can deteriorate and witness memories can fade. Consider that this could substantially harm your chance of victory.
