How Long Do I Have to File a Claim in Florida?

In all states, victims have a specified amount of time in which they can file lawsuits. These state-specific deadlines are known as statutes of limitations and typically begin on the day of the accident or injury in question.

In the state of Florida, statutes for personal injury claims can be broken down into the following:

  • Most personal injury cases – 4 years
  • Medical malpractice – 2 years
  • Product liability – 2 or 4 years
  • Assault/battery – 2 years
  • Wrongful death – 2 years

This means that if you file your claim even one day past the deadline, you most likely won’t be able to recover damages, even if your claim is valid. Our Fort Lauderdale injury attorneys have the experience needed to help you file your claim and navigate the process in an efficient manner so you don’t have to worry about filing your claim in time.

For direct, face-to-face access with an experienced Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer, call us at (954) 833-7044. You don’t pay a dime until we win.
