Are there time limits to sue for injuries in a Florida brain injury case?
There are time limits to sue for injuries in a brain injury case. It depends upon what kind of injuries you have and also depends upon who caused those injuries. First of all, if the person who has the brain injury survives, generally that is a four year statute of limitations. If however, the person who suffers the brain injury dies as a result of that injury or others in the accident, it would become a two year statute of limitations under the wrongful death statute. Now, it also can be affected by who has injured you. If it was a doctor who injured you or a medical facility, that is a two year statute of limitations and there are some time limits that you want to contact an attorney immediately for, for that. If it was a municipality or a government entity, that is a three year statute of limitations. So, the most important thing to do if you feel you’ve been injured or somebody you love has been injured and has a brain injury, is to call an attorney right away so that you can discuss the facts of your case and can determine when you need to take action.
