What is the statute of limitations to filing a truck accident injury claim in Florida?
If a person is injured in a trucking accident case, the question, is there a difference in terms of the statute of limitations to bring that claim or to file that lawsuit? In Florida, a trucking accident claim is the same statute of limitations that would be used in an automobile injury accident case or what we would call a general negligence claim. In that instance, the statute of limitations is four years from the date of the accident to file the claim or the case properly and timely.
Four years is a long period of time; many states have lower or shorter statutes of limitations. What I also advise my clients is you would never want to wait until the end of that four-year period of time. It’s always advisable to seek legal representation right away if you or your family member is injured in any kind of an auto or truck accident injury claim. Don’t wait until the four years or right before the four years expires.
That’s what I advise and that’s what we do. We handle these claims very diligently. We don’t wait until the last minute to file these claims.
