What is the statute of limitations to bring a Florida auto accident case?
The statute of limitations in Florida for automobile accident cases is four years for negligence in general. If the automobile accident case results in a wrongful death, then the statute of limitations is two years. Now what the statute of limitations means is that you have this period of two years or four years to actually file a lawsuit. Often times what happens is your attorney is able to make their claim and get the case settled without filing a lawsuit but should that fail, you have up to four years in Florida for a non-death injury case and then two years if it’s a death.
