Understanding the Statute of Limitations in Your Florida Personal Injury Case
The statute of limitations regarding personal injury claims in Florida has undergone a recent amendment. Typically, in Florida, you have four years from the date of an accident to file a claim. If the incident occurred before March 24, 2023, when the law became effective, you still have four years from the date of your accident to take legal action.
Due to this change, which became effective on March 24, 2023, the period to file a lawsuit has been reduced. If the accident date is after March 24, 2023, you only have two years to file a lawsuit.
Now that the statute of limitations has been reduced, we recommend filing your claim as soon as possible. Failure to meet the new deadline may result in your claim being denied.
