Car Accident Statute Of Limitations
Filing a claim and filing a lawsuit are not the same. A claim usually refers to the process of notifying the insurance company, while filing a lawsuit refers to the legal process that gets the case into the court system with the intention of having a judge or jury ultimately decide the outcome of an otherwise unresolved claim for damages. The deadline to file a lawsuit is commonly referred to as the statute of limitations. In Florida, the statute of limitations for most negligence actions, such as car accidents, is four years from the date of the incident. If you file your lawsuit after four years, it will likely be dismissed by the judge, and you will have lost your chance to seek damages for your injuries.
In addition to the statute of limitations, there are many other reasons why delaying your claim can be detrimental to your claim and potentially prevent you from recovering compensation for all of your damages. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, it’s imperative that you take immediate action as soon as possible and call Todd Miner Law. All of the auto accident attorneys at Todd Miner Law are former insurance company defense attorneys. We’ve all been on “the other side”, and understand the complex nature and law of personal injury and will work hard to ensure that we secure the compensation you deserve.
What Damages Can I Recover from an Auto Accident?
There are three main types of compensation you can recover for after an accident, economic, non-economic and punitive. Economic damages compensate for financial losses while non-economic damages compensate for the more abstract losses associated with suffering an injury. Punitive damages are not often awarded since they are usually reserved for cases where the defendant knew their actions cause harm but did them anyway.
Economic and Non-Economic Damages Usually Cover:
- Loss of income or wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Past and future medical bills
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Physical pain and suffering
If you were injured by a careless, reckless, or otherwise negligent driver, you deserve to be compensated for your losses. Similarly, if your loved one was killed in a car accident caused by another driver, our attorneys can help you file a wrongful death claim—which can help your family pay for funeral costs and any medical bills. Whatever the case, we are here to help you deal with this challenging situation by taking effective legal action.
At Todd Miner Law, we know that the aftermath of an auto accident can be challenging—not just emotionally and physically, but financially. This is why our firm works on a contingency fee basis. To put it simply: we don’t ask for any legal fees unless we secure a financial award on your behalf. That way, we can focus on your case while you focus on your recovery. If our firm doesn’t win your case, you don’t pay.
What is Pure Comparative Negligence?
Can you file a claim even if you are partially at fault for the accident that led to your injuries? In Florida you can. Just like nearly one-third of states in the United States, Florida is a “pure comparative negligence” state.
Pure comparative negligence is a rule which allows an injured person to pursue compensation for their injuries no matter their degree of fault for the accident that led to their injuries, however, any compensation won will be reduced by their percentage of fault.
