How Long Do I Have to Bring A Personal Injury Claim in Florida? 

Florida has a statute of limitations which sets a deadline for the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit to seek compensation for your injuries caused by another. The statute of limitations varies depending on the type of law suit you file.

The Florida statute of limitations on personal injury claims is four years from the date of the accident.

This means you must file your lawsuit within four years of the date you were injured, or you will be precluded from bringing an action. If you miss the state of limitations, you will be unable to seek recovery for your injuries. In very rare cases the statute of limitations is not strictly applied. Do not wait. It is imperative that you hire a personal injury attorney to help you with your claim as soon after the accident as possible.

The Florida statute of limitation in a wrongful death case is two years from the date of death. If the state of limitations passes, you will not be able to seek justice on your loved one's behalf.

I have engaged Draper Law Offices for three (3) different accidents.  My experience with this firm has been excellent each time, with positive results in my favor.  Charles Draper kept me informed throughout the process of each claim.  He was always available when ever I needed him to answer any questions.
The staff could not have been more courteous and helpful to me.  They never made me feel that I was bothering them (and I called quite a lot, believe me).  After a while they seemed like family.
I certainly would engage Draper Law Office (Charles Draper) if another problem would occur.
My recommendation to other people as to Draper Law Office would be “FIRST” on my list.
They are true and loyal to their clients.
I thank them from the bottom of my heart.
