Is there a time limit to file my Florida car accident lawsuit?

The time limit for filing a claim for an automobile accident is somewhat of a complicated issue and there could be a variety of statute of limitations or time limits. For starters, if an automobile accident causes death for example, the statute of limitations is actually two years. If the automobile accident involves defendant who is a sovereign entity, a government agent, a postal worker, a policeman, that's actually three years.

If it's a typical automobile accident involving whether it's just two individual owners or a corporate owner or a corporate driver, that's a four years. Then finally, if you're filing a claim against your own insurance company for uninsured or under insured motor's coverage, that's five years. There's also additional statute of limitations that could be applicable, it's somewhat of a complicated issue and we definitely advice that you seek the advice of a experienced personal injury attorney to help you.
