How Long Do I Have to File a Claim? 

When it comes to filing a personal injury suit, time is of the essence! This is due to a law called the “statute of limitations.” This law imposes a time limit on how long injury victims have to file a personal injury claim before they lose their legal right to do so. According to the Florida Statutes section 95.11(3)(a), the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Florida is four years. 

This means you have four years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury claim or you will no longer be able to file, effectively losing your right to pursue compensation. While four years may seem like a lengthy amount of time, the truth is there are several exceptions that can change the time period you have to file so it is important to contact an attorney from our firm as soon as possible to discuss your case.

Understanding the Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims

It's important to be aware of the statute of limitations when considering filing a personal injury claim. In Florida, the statute of limitations for most personal injury cases is four years from the date of the accident or injury. However, there are exceptions to this rule, and certain types of cases may have different time limits.

It's crucial to consult with a knowledgeable DeLand personal injury attorney as soon as possible to ensure that your claim is filed within the required time frame. Waiting too long to take legal action can result in the loss of your right to seek compensation for your injuries.

Looking To File a Personal Injury Claim?

Our attorneys at Buckmaster & Ellzey are dedicated to providing compassionate and effective legal counsel. We handle a wide range of injury cases, including the following:

  • Auto/trucking accidents
  • Slip and fall
  • Medical malpractice
  • Product liability
  • Wrongful death

In most events where life-altering harm can be attributed to the fault of another, you have the right to file a lawsuit. A claim can address the emotional and psychological damage suffered as a result of the injury, and/or the wages lost due to the accident. Likewise, if another's negligence led to your loved one passing away, you can seek to recover the support (including earnings and inheritance) they would have otherwise provided you.

Do not delay in seeking compensation for the wrong others have caused you. Some types of cases, such as wrongful death, give a small window of time in which a personal injury claim can be filed. Our attorneys can handle your case in a timely, professional manner. With Buckmaster & Ellzey, you can be confident that your case is in the right hands.
