Is there a time limit on filing a case?

Depending on the nature of the injury or accident, there may be a statute of limitations that limits how long you have to file a personal injury case. In most Florida personal injury cases, the statute of limitations is four years, but it may be longer or shorter depending on the exact type of the case.

Because of the statute of limitations, it is important not to delay in contacting a personal injury attorney. When an attorney is brought in soon after the incident, it ensures that he or she will be able to gather the evidence when it is most readily available and that there is time to build a strong case.

If you think you may have a personal injury case, please contact Joyce & Reyes for a consultation.
