How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?
According to the Florida Statutes section 95.11(3)(a) injury victims have four years to file a claim before the statute of limitations ends. This means you have four years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you may lose your right to pursue compensation. Florida does recognize some exceptions to this rule such as in cases where the defendant intentionally tried to conceal themselves or the claimant was under a form of legal disability. An attorney from our firm can let you know if you qualify for an extension to the statute of limitations.
