Florida Personal Injury Statutes of Limitations
Miami, Plantation & Fort Lauderdale, Florida
In the state of Florida you have four years from the date your accident occured to file a personal injury lawsuit following most accidents. The limitation is two years on medical malpractice claims, with a maximum of four years from the date malpractice occurred regardless of its date of discovery. Wrongful death claims must be made within four years of the date of death or the date it became known that death was inevitable.Do Not Wait to Take Legal Action
