Each state is responsible for setting time limits for how long injury victims have to file lawsuits against alleged negligent parties in their case. In most states, the statute of limitations is set at two to three years after an injury occurs. However, when we turn to Florida Statute § 95.11(3)(a), we can see that The Florida personal injury statute of limitations is four years from the date an accident occurs. This means that victims have a four-year window with which to file a lawsuit, or they will lose the ability to recover compensation for their losses.
