Contact a Lawyer Before Your Time Limit to File a Florida Car Accident Injury Claim Runs Out
When you or a loved one has been injured in a Florida car wreck, no matter the type of accident or severity of injuries, it is important that you contact a Fort Lauderdale car accident attorney as soon as possible afterward.
What many people do not understand is that you may be eligible to earn financial compensation after a crash caused by a negligent driver. This other party, who may have been drunk or distracted when crashing into you, may also be liable for your injuries and damages.
Florida car accidents can result in many serious injuries, including cuts and bruises, broken bones or sprains, back or neck injuries, brain or head injuries, or the very real chance of death. These injuries may haunt you and your family for the rest of your lives.
There are also many costs associated with serious Florida car wrecks. Not only do you have to contend with sky-high medical bills and ongoing care or physical therapy, but also lost wages from missed time at work and the very real pain and emotional suffering that follows most serious accidents.
If your accident was caused by a negligent driver, and you think it's unfair that you have to pay for the consequences of their irresponsible behavior, you do have options. Your legal rights entitle you to file a personal injury claim after a serious Florida car accident, earning financial compensation for your costs.
If you want to pursue a personal injury claim, it is imperative that you act quickly. The time limit to file a Florida car accident claim, called the statute of limitations, is four years. That means you have 48 months from the time of the crash to start a claim.
While the time limit to file a Florida car accident claim is longer, it is important that you do not delay. Every minute you wait after being injured in a wreck that was not your fault, you are giving the insurance companies an advantage in arguing against you.
