Hi, I’m Attorney Mike Hancock with Hancock
Injury Attorneys. And we are going to discuss something called the statute of limitations.The
statute of limitations is simply the time limit that you have to file a lawsuit against
the appropriate defendant in a personal injury claim. In Florida, you have four years from
the date of the accident to file a lawsuit in the appropriate county against the appropriate
party. If you do not file the lawsuit within the appropriate time you will forever lose
your right to do so. So in Florida, the applicable statute of limitations is four years from
the date of your accident to file the appropriate lawsuit in court. Now, there’s a lot of things
that are done before the lawsuit is filed. We may go four to six months or four to eight
months before we ever end up filing a lawsuit, what we try to do before filing a lawsuit
in every single case is, attempt to negotiate a favorable settlement on your behalf. But,
the simple answer, what is the appropriate statute of limitations for a personal injury
case in Florida, that’s four years.
