Under-insured & Uninsured Motorist Claims

If you have been involved in an accident where another driver was under-insured or uninsured, our attorneys will explore every opportunity for recovery, including your own insurance company.

Our attorneys will investigate the facts closely and assert your claim for the coverage you deserve.

What Is the Statute of Limitations for an Auto Accident?

In Florida, a plaintiff has four years to file a personal injury claim against a negligent driver. This legal deadline, which is called the statute of limitations, starts ticking the moment a collision occurs. However, in accordance with Florida Statutes section 95.11(4)(d), a plaintiff in a wrongful death case only has two years to bring a case to court. If you fail to file a claim by the appropriate deadline, the court may refuse to hear your case, and the defendant could have grounds to request a case dismissal. Of course, there are exceptions to this policy, such as the “discovery rule,” which can influence and extend the statute of limitations. For this reason, it’s important to discuss your case with a qualified car accident attorney as soon as possible.
