How long will I have to sue a hotel for my injuries in Florida?

If you are injured in a hotel, you will have to file your personal injury claim within the state’s statute of limitations. Simply put, the statute of limitations is the amount of time you will have from the date of your accident to take legal action against the party responsible. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is four years. Do not make the mistake of waiting any longer than four years from the date of your accident to sue, for if you do, there is a very good chance that you will be permanently time-barred from suing.
