The statute of limitations sets forth the time frame in this state to pursue a claim for personal injury damages. Depending upon the type of claim you have, the statute of limitations is different. For example, the typical auto accident statute of limitations is four years. Although a claim for uninsured or underinsured motorists benefits has a statute of limitations of five years. For nursing home abuse cases the statute of limitations is typically two years, as is also the case with medical malpractice claims.

There are exceptions to all of these rules, so if you are interested in pursuing any type of personal injury case in Florida, you should seek the advice of an attorney immediately for the answer to this and other very important questions.
