Time Limits on Filing a Motorcycle Accident Claim

Time Limits on Claims in Florida Motorcycle Accidents

When you or someone has been injured or even killed in a motorcycle accident by a negligent driver, you have the legal right to collect damages. In these cases, the financial compensation may include:

  • Medical bills
  • Ongoing care
  • Funeral costs
  • Lost wages
  • And more

However, depending on when your accident occurred and when you decide to file a claim to recover damages, there may a time limit on pursuing these. These time limits are referred to as statute of limitations.

The statute of limitations in Florida for a personal injury claim, which you may file after being injured in a Florida motorcycle wreck , is four (4) years. If you are filing a wrongful death suit, the limit is two (2) years from the time of passing.

The statute of limitations for personal injury cases also states that there is a limit on the amount of time after an accident you can wait before starting your claim. It is important that you are timely, or you could end up not being able to seek compensation at all.
