What is the statute of limitations on a Florida bicycle accident case?

The statute of limitations is the time limit within which you have to bring a legal lawsuit against an at-fault driver. Generally speaking, in the state of Florida you have four years to bring a lawsuit in a negligence case, such as an accident case. However, one other thing to keep in mind is that with claims against governmental entities, such as local, county, or state entities, you only have three years to bring a notice of a claim. These notice requirements can be complex, so we recommend that you contact an attorney to understand the time limits that you have to file a lawsuit.
