How long do I have to file a slip and fall injury claim in Florida?
Recently I was asked, “How long do I have to bring a slip and fall or a trip and fall case here in Florida?” The short answer is four years, unless it’s a government defendant, in which case it’s only three years. The bigger takeaway is that it’s not about the statute of limitations. We don’t want to be waiting until our last opportunity to file a lawsuit. We want to get in there quickly. Evidence fades over time, so we want to take statements from witnesses, and find out all the medical damages that we can. We want to undertake our investigation so that we can aggressively prosecute the case right from the very beginning.
