How does the California Legal system work?

The Court system in California is a three level hierarchy. The higher courts in California can review decisions that the lower courts have made. The Court levels in California are:
- The California Superior Court – where you file your law suit. The California Superior court hears civil cases that come under three different categories:
• Unlimited Cases: car accident cases that seek more than $25,000.00 in damages.
• Limited Cases: car accident cases that seek less than $25,000.00 in damages.
• Small Claims: car accident cases that seek less than $7,500.00 in damages.
- The California Court of Appeal – where appeals are first heard.
- The California Supreme Court – where final appeals are heard.

If you are interested in filing a car accident lawsuit in Los Angeles, California, you would file the law suit with the California Superior Court. The first question you will need to answer is what your total expenses and costs are in relation to your car accident. Accurately determining this amount can be incredibly difficult and complex.
