A: A statute of limitations is a law that prevents a person from filing a lawsuit over a "stale" claim. There are different statutes of limitations for different claims. They are in California Civil Code beginning around section 340. There are a few conditions that will stay or stop the "clock from ticking" on the running of the statutes. Some of these have to do with a disability of the plaintiff, like being under 18, and others have to do with a requirement to file a complaint with a government agency, like a government claim form. In my experience, filing with the Bar does not stop the clock because it is not a prerequisite to filing a lawsuit. Filing with the Dept. of Industrial Relations for a workplace injury does not stop the clock on a civil lawsuit, which might be available to you because of a third party's (not the employer) bad actions that caused you harm. In addition, if you are bringing a claim against any kind of government agency you usually have only 180 days to file a government claim form, which is REQUIRED before you can file suit against the agency. You should contact an attorney in your area to discuss your case and to get advice about the statute of limitations in your particular situation.
