How long do I have to file a claim for my pedestrian accident?

There are set time limits that dictate how long you have to file a personal injury claim. This time frame is known as the statute of limitations. Under Florida law a pedestrian accident claim must be filed within four years of the date the incident occurred.

As a result, it is best to speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer right away after a pedestrian accident to ensure you do not give up your right to pursue compensation for your injuries. If you wait too long to take action, you may be unable to file a claim. The attorney will help you understand your legal options.
