How long do I have to file a bicycle accident claim in Florida?
Yesterday I was called by someone who was injured on a bicycle. They wanted to know, right off the bat, how long they had to file a claim. Any injury claim in the state of Florida is a four-year claim. You have four years from the time of the accident within which to file a lawsuit to make sure you preserve your claim, but you’re not going to have a claim to preserve if you don’t hire the right attorneys and you don’t go get immediate medical attention for your injuries.Although you have four years, if you wait four years to go get care, it’s not much of an injury claim. The first thing you ought to do is make sure that you hire the right attorney so that they can advise you of all the aspects of the law.
