Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Cases in Florida
The statute of limitations is a legal time restriction that dictates the window within which a plaintiff can initiate a lawsuit. Its duration varies according to the state and the nature of the case. If you attempt to file a lawsuit beyond the expiration of the statute of limitations, your case is likely to be dismissed, effectively preventing you from pursuing any compensation.
Florida’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims is generally two years from the date of the accident. The statute of limitations for most personal injury cases was previously four years but was recently changed in March 2023. It is imperative that you speak with a personal injury attorney in Florida that will be able to file your case within the applicable limitations period.
