How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit in Fort Lauderdale?

Video Transcript

The time that you have to file a lawsuit in Fort Lauderdale, and the rest of Florida, has changed very recently. The law changed from four years from the date of the incident to two years from the date of the incident. So, if you are involved in an accident, it’s really important to speak to a lawyer so that they can assess whether or not your case can be filed within the statute of limitations.

It also changes depending upon what the entity is involved. If it’s a government entity, it could affect the time period in which you can file the case.
