How long after an accident can I sue?

The state of Florida does place certain restrictions on people in terms of when they can file suit, time restrictions. The ordinary automobile case, negligence, that's going to be a four-year statute of limitations.

For other things like professional or medical malpractice, it could be as short as two, just as it was with wrongful death. But the question client should ask themselves is not how long do I have to sue, it's when is the right time to initiate suit, what do we need to initiate suit at all.

If you have built your case up, if the treatment is appropriate and it's done, your lawyer, and here in this office, we pride ourselves in trying to get the right results as fast as possible, but not rushing. If we can accomplish those results without subjecting you to the risks of litigation and increased cost, we will do that. By the same token, if we can't, we file suit and so should the injured person.
