What is the statute of limitations to bring a Florida auto accident case?

Generally speaking, the Statute of Limitations to bring a Florida auto accident case is four years. You have four years to file a lawsuit in any kind of negligence case. However, keep in mind that if it's a governmental entity involved, like a sheriff's deputy driving a vehicle, then you have to give notice of a claim to that governmental entity within three years. Because these time limits can be complicated, we do recommend that you consult with an attorney to discuss your rights.
