An important factor to take into consideration—whether you have been injured in a car accident, construction accident or if you have been injured on another person’s property -- is that there is a limit on how long you can wait to file a claim in a personal injury or wrongful death claim.
Many times referred to as a “statute of limitation,” if you wait too long to file a claim, the claim becomes invalid and you cannot recover damages from the responsible party. Generally, in Florida, the following are the statute of limitations for a personal injury claim; however, we suggest always speaking to an experienced St. Petersburg personal injury attorney as soon as you think you have a case, to ensure that you retain your rights under the law:
- Medical malpractice claims: 2 years
- Personal injury claims: 4 years (from date of injury or accident)
- Product liability: 4 years (from date of injury)
- Wrongful death: 2 years (from date of death)
- First Party Insurance Claim: 5 years (from date of loss)
We are available to you, everyday, all day. Please call us at (727) 823-0000 to discuss your case and how we can assist you.
