In Florida, if you’ve been involved in a traffic accident, you need to know that there are time limits to file a claim, and these are set by the statute of limitations. You will need to settle or file your claim by these limits to ensure that your claim opportunity is not lost.
Wrongful death claims must be filed within two years from the time of the accident. Four-year limits include injury accidents involving a minor, accidents involving government vehicles, and claims for underinsured or uninsured motorists.
Also, government vehicle accidents require a notice of claim to be filed within three years of the accident. These rules apply only to accidents in Florida, and these limits can change, so be sure to consult an experienced attorney like Draper Law Office.
