Florida’s Legal Time Limit For Filing Car Accident Claims

Florida’s legal time limit for filing a car accident claim —  known as the statute of limitations —  is four years from the date of the accident. Statutes of limitations are firm deadlines and if an injured car accident victim does not file a personal injury claim in the Florida courts before this four-year deadline expires, then the court will dismiss the case. 

Should that happen, the injured person will have lost their opportunity to recover compensatory damages from the at-fault driver. If you or a loved one was injured in a car accident and are concerned that you may be unable to meet the statutory deadline for filing a personal injury claim, speak with one of the experienced car accident attorneys at Lawlor, White & Murphy for a free, no-obligation consultation. 

Lauderdale Lakes Car Accident Victims May File A Personal Injury Claim To Recover Compensatory Damages From The At-Fault Driver

When negligence causes a car accident, personal injury law provides a mechanism for the injured party to hold the at-fault driver accountable and recover compensation. In filing a personal injury claim in the Florida courts, the car accident victim may recover the following damages:

The damages in a personal injury claim are compensatory, meaning that they are intended to compensate the injured person for the losses they sustained in the car accident. These damages are not designed to punish the person who is responsible for the car accident. To learn more about the compensation you may be eligible to recover for your Florida car accident, arrange a free confidential consultation with an experienced car accident attorney at Lawlor, White & Murphey.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Car Accidents In Lauderdale Lakes, Florida

FAQ: If I was in a car accident but I feel ok afterward, should I still see a doctor?

Yes — even if you and any passengers in your vehicle think you feel fine after being involved in a car accident, it is usually best to see a doctor. Sometimes injuries from a car accident do not present themselves immediately and, in some cases, there are injuries that may not be evident to you but are apparent to a medical professional. A visit with a medical professional will be necessary should you pursue a personal injury claim for your car accident.

FAQ: The other driver’s insurance company called me about the car accident; they said they wanted to ask me some questions. Should I speak with them?

No. You should not speak to the insurance company about your car accident claim without first speaking with an experienced car accident attorney. The other driver’s insurance company is representing the other driver and their interests, not yours. Before you speak to anyone about your car accident or accept a settlement offer, consult with an experienced Florida car accident attorney. The personal injury team at Lawlor, White & Murphey offers a complimentary confidential consultation for accident victims.
