What is the statute of limitations to bring a Florida auto accident case?
If you were injured in an accident in the State of Florida there is something called a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is the time in which you have to file a lawsuit from the date of that accident. The statute of limitations for a Florida automobile accident is generally four years. However, on uninsured and underinsured it’s five years. You have to be very careful though because if the other driver’s insurance is not a Florida based policy, the statute of limitations for that insurance in another state could be as little as one year. It’s very important for you to consult with an attorney in order to acquire all of the potential insurance information to know up front what your statute of limitations is.
