How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Florida?
How long an injured person has to file a personal injury claim is a determined by a law called the statute of limitations. 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.
This means you have four years from the date your injury was inflicted to file a claim, or you will almost certainly lose your right to do so, along with your right to pursue compensation. However, it’s important to note that there are exceptions that can change this time limit, so it’s crucial you speak to an experienced Dunedin personal injury attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as possible.
Some examples of these exceptions include:
- If the injury victim was deemed legally "incapacitated" at the time of the accident
- If the alleged negligent party leaves the state of Florida before a claim can be filed
- If the alleged negligent party intentionally hides their identity in order 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 lawyer about the specifics of your case as soon as you can. Paulsen Law Group offers free, no-obligation consultations so you have nothing to lose by contacting our firm today.
