Starke Personal Injury Lawyer

How Long Do You Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?

The state of Florida imposes different statutes of limitations on different types of personal injury cases. In most cases, you only have four years from the date of the accident/injury to bring a claim. However, this timeframe may be longer or shorter depending on the type of claim you are filing, the nature of the injury, the age of the victim, and more.

Below, we’ve provided a general overview of the different statutes of limitations on personal injury claims in Florida:

  • Standard personal injury cases: four years
  • Wrongful death claims: two years
  • Defective product claims: two or four years
  • Medical malpractice cases: two years
  • Assault/battery injury claims: two years

Note that additional timelines may apply depending on the specifics of your case. For example, if the liable entity is a government agency, you will need to follow a different process than you would with a standard personal injury claim.
