How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Florida?
According to the Florida Statutes section 95.11(3)(a), the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of Florida is four years. The statute of limitations is a law that limits how long injury victims have to file a personal injury claim and is determined on a state-by-state basis.
More specifically, this means you have four years from the date your injury occurred to file your claim, or you will lose your right to file along with your right to recover compensation, no matter how severe your injuries. It’s important to note that there are exceptions that can change your filing period. The most notable exceptions include:
- If the injury victim was legally determined to be “incapacitated” by a temporary or permanent mental illness
- If the alleged negligent party leaves the state of Florida before the lawsuit can be filed
- If the allegedly negligent party tried to intentionally conceal their identity to avoid a lawsuit.
The statute of limitations has a big impact on your ability to file a claim so it’s important to speak to a skilled attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as you can. Gunn Law Group offers free, no-obligation consultations so you have nothing to lose by contacting our firm today!
