How long do I have to file a Florida brain injury case?
How long you have to file a Florida brain injury case depends upon the facts of your case. First of all, if the person who suffered the brain injury due to the negligence of another passes away, the Florida Wrongful Death Act comes into play and the statute of limitation for that is two years. Generally, on a personal injury type of case, where the person is still alive but was injured, that statute in Florida is four years, but in cases where there’s a government entity or other particular entities involved, it can be different timeframes. The most important thing to do if you think you’ve been injured or have a brain injury is to call an attorney right away so you can find out your rights.
