Statute of Limitations for Injury Claims in Florida
With any injury claim, the victim has a limited amount of time to file legal action against the responsible party. Every state has these deadlines, known as the statute of limitations. In Florida, the statute of limitations for an injury claim is four years from the date of the accident, as established by Florida Statutes Annotated section 95.11(3)). If you don’t file your claim within this time frame, the court will likely refuse to hear your case at all. That’s why it is so important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible, and file your claim within the established period.
