Florida Statute of Limitations
Florida is a “no-fault” car insurance state, so after an accident you will need to file under your personal injury coverage. This is to make sure you can be covered for any medical expenses or other financial loses. However, if the driver is completely at fault for the accident, then the other driver’s insurance will pay to compensate for those bills acquired by the accident. You must report the accident to the local police if the damages of vehicle or property adds up to $500 in a municipality. If the accident did not occur in a municipality, then you must report the accident to the county sheriff office, nearest station, or the Florida Highway Patrol. The “statute of limitations” says that you have four years to file a car accident lawsuit from the date of the crash. Also, Florida follow a “pure comparative fault” when both parties are at fault or share some blame for the accident. The jury will calculate the dollar amount of the plaintiff’s damages and the percentage of the fault that would belong to either party. Under that rule, the plaintiff’s damages award is reduced by what that percentage equals to his/her share of the fault.
