If you have been injured by someone else’s negligence, you have the right to pursue justice in a personal injury lawsuit. However, there is a strict time limit that is imposed in the state of Florida, known as the statute of limitations. Our firm has guided thousands of clients to favorable outcomes. We will discuss your options and provide aggressive representation as you seek compensation after an accident.
What Is the Statute of Limitations in Florida?
The statute of limitations is a time limit imposed on plaintiffs. It is designed to not only keep evidence and witness testimony as accurate as possible, but to also protect defendants from the threat of a lawsuit decades after an incident. In the state of Florida, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is 4 years. However, the statute of limitations for medical malpractice and wrongful death claims is 2 years. If you wait too long and do not file a lawsuit within the statute of limitations, your claim will likely be denied and you may be unable to pursue a settlement.
