After a serious car accident, your first priority is certainly the recovery process — and especially so if you’ve had to endure the loss of a loved one. However, depending on your state, a statute of limitations law could seriously hinder your hopes of receiving compensation.
In the state of Florida, the statute of limitations for a car accident injury is four years after the date of the accident. However, if the result of the car accident was a wrongful death, families only have 2 years from the date of death to file a lawsuit.
Failing to adhere to these time limits could prevent you from receiving the full compensation you deserve for another’s negligent actions.
