What is the statute of limitations to bring a Florida auto accident case?

Most Florida auto accident cases are based upon simple negligence. In the state of Florida, you must bring a negligence claim within four years of the negligent act. There are other exceptions to that. If you die as a result of a motor vehicle accident, then the wrongful death statute of limitations is applicable, which is two years. If you are bringing an uninsured motorist claim as a result of a motor vehicle crash, that claim must be brought within five years. These different statute of limitations can be very complicated. In many instances, there are exceptions, or specific rules. Therefore, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced motor vehicle accident lawyer in order to determine what the proper statute of limitations is on your claim.
