Car accidents can occur for a wide array of reasons, though they are most frequently the result of driver negligence. Some of the most common causes of car accidents include driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, exceeding the speed limit, driving while fatigued, texting while driving (or otherwise driving while distracted), and disobeying all other rules and regulations of the road. The bottom line is that if you were injured as a result of another driver’s negligence, there is a very good chance that you will be entitled to financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, and more, in a personal injury claim. Our firm has helped countless individuals who’ve been injured in car accidents obtain the compensation they need to heal, and we are ready to assist you through every step of the legal process as well.

How long will I have to file a personal injury claim after being hurt in a car accident in Florida?
The statute of limitations for car accident injury claims in Florida is, typically, four years, meaning you cannot wait longer than four years from the date of your accident to sue the liable party for your injuries. That being said, it is always best that you do not wait an entire four years to take action; instead, you should speak with our firm and file your claim as soon as possible after your injury, as the longer you wait, the harder your claim will be to prove.
