Free Case Evaluation


The state of Florida has established certain deadlines, called a statute of limitations, that govern how long you have to file a personal injury claim. If the deadlines pass, you will no longer be able to file a claim. In order to ensure that you do not miss these important deadlines, you should consult an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident. Michael Barszcz has been handling personal injury cases in the Orlando and Winter Park areas for more than 24 years.

It is important to act quickly. Delay in hiring a lawyer can potentially jeopardize your ability to recover compensation. Please call 866-843-6353 for a free consultation to discuss your case.

Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Cases in Florida

In Florida, the statute of limitations for most personal injury cases is four years. In other words, you have four years from the date of your injury to file a claim against the negligent parties. However, there are exceptions to this rule. Some types of personal injury cases only have a two year statute of limitations. These include:

Time is of the Essence

While you have several years to file your personal injury claim, it is not wise to wait until the statute of limitations is approaching to hire a lawyer. Over time witnesses may move away, or their memory of the events associated with your injury may not be as clear. In certain types of cases, it is important to investigate the accident scene while the evidence is still fresh. By waiting too long, you may compromise your lawyer’s ability to build the strongest case possible.

Mr. Barszcz may work with a team of investigators to gather the evidence necessary to prove the liability in your case. Generally, the earlier an investigation of your case is started, the better chance we have of recovering evidence.
