How long do I have to file a bicycle accident claim in Florida?
I have a client who came to me recently who was injured in a bicycle accident. She was asking how long she has to prosecute a bicycle accident claim. Bicycle Accident Statute of Limitations is two years from the date of the accident that the claimant actually has to file a lawsuit.
Having said that, it’s critically important that we not wait. Evidence fades over time and so do witnesses’ memories. Opportunities are lost when the claimant waits, so it’s important not to. Although there are four-years, the first thing that a person should do when they’re injured in a bicycle accident is get medical treatment. Then the next most important thing is getting an experienced trial attorney on your side.
