Statue of Limitations for a Personal Injury Claim – What is the Statute of Limitations in Florida?

by admin on May 12, 2012

Statue of Limitations for a Personal Injury Claim: The Statute of Limitations for an automobile collision case is four years from the date of accident. That means if you do not file a lawsuit within four years, your claim will forever be barred under Florida law, and you will never be able to recover any money damages from the actual driver, owner or their insurance company. The statute of limitations for a medical malpractice case in Florida is two years. This gets a little more complicated than an automobile case because in a medical malpractice case, one of the issues will be, “When does the two years begin?” The two years may not be from the date the doctor made the mistake: it could be two years from when you should have discovered the medical mistake. An experienced lawyer needs to help determine the answer to that question. If you are bringing a claim against your own insurance company for breach of contract, you have five years from the date of the accident to file your lawsuit, or your claim will forever be barred under Florida law.
