Why the Florida Statute of Limitations for Filing a Personal Injury Claim Matters

By mlginjury, In Personal Injury, 0 Comments

At MLG Injury, our Florida personal injury attorneys provide the experience, skill, and resources our clients need to pursue the best outcome for their unique cases.

That begins by identifying who is liable for their injuries, so we can pursue the proper insurance coverage(s) for their full financial recovery.

However, if the statute of limitation has expired, there may be no case at all.

The statute of limitations is a law that sets the maximum amount of time an injured person has to file a legal claim after the incident occurred.

If an injury victim does not file a personal injury claim before the statute of limitations expires, they may lose their chance to file a claim at all.

We can help ensure you do not lose your opportunity to hold the liable person, party, or entity liable for your complete financial recovery.

What is the Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in Florida?

The Florida Statutes Section 95.11 lists the timeframe for a person to file a personal injury lawsuit as four years.

The clock begins ticking on the date of the incident when the injury occurred.

Acting Quickly Can Help Preserve Critical Evidence in a Florida Personal Injury Claim

At MLG Injury, our skilled Florida personal injury lawyers encourage injury victims to pursue their legal claim as quickly as possible after a vehicle collision, slip, and fall incident or wrongful death occurred.

Initiating a personal injury investigation immediately helps preserve important evidence and witness testimony while the events are still fresh in their minds.

When our clients wait too long to pursue the liable party after their incident occurred, the responsible party may misplace or destroy evidence that helps support our injury claim.

Likewise, witnesses can be difficult to locate, and their memories and recollection can change over time, so getting their official statements early can bring real value to our claim.

Our skilled personal injury lawyers in Florida will also review your medical records and discuss your injuries and recovery timeline with your physicians, so we know when you will reach maximum medical improvement. This will allow us to outline your complete financial recovery needs and pursue the negligent party’s insurance coverage for the best outcome for your unique case.
