How much time do I have after a Florida truck accident to file a lawsuit? | Marianne Howanitz | Attorney at Law | http://ocalaaccidentlaw.com/ | 352-512-0444 | 118 W Fort King St., Ocala, Florida, 34471
The time you have to file a lawsuit is called the statute of limitations, and depending upon the circumstances, it can be different in each case. Generally, in a personal injury case, it is a four year statute of limitations. However, if it involves a government vehicle or a municipality vehicle, that can be three years. If there’s the unfortunate death, it can be a two year statute of limitations. The most important thing to do if there is a serious truck accident is to call a qualified trucking accident attorney right away, because the most important thing is to preserve the evidence and your rights.
