How Long Do I Have to File a Catastrophic Injury Claim?
In all states, including Florida, a statute of limitations exists that sets a time limit in which a person can file a legal claim. In personal injury cases, Floridians have up to four years to file their catastrophic injury claim. This statute of limitations varies in specific cases dependent upon the situation in which the accident occurred. Consulting an attorney can help you understand the nature of your case and what regulations may apply to you. Working with an attorney has many benefits and can allow you the time to focus on recovery while we focus on getting you the compensation you deserve.

The Aftermath of a Brain Injury
As soon as possible after suffering a potential brain injury, seek medical care from a trusted and highly trained professional. We also encourage you to seek legal representation before accepting any sort of settlement from the insurance company. Insurance companies have their own best interests in mind when offering settlements and may not fully compensate you for current and future needs. Once you settle a claim, you will not likely be allowed to go back and request additional compensation because your injuries were more severe than you realized.
At Oldham & Smith, we will work tirelessly to perform a comprehensive evaluation of your accident to accurately determine the value of your claim and to ensure that you get the compensation you are owed.
