Car Accident Lawyer Assisting Plaintiffs in Apopka, Florida
Car accidents can happen in an instant, and they can cause debilitating and life-threatening injuries. Most often, motor vehicle crashes happen because of another motorist’s carelessness behind the wheel, or reckless behavior. For example, looking down at a smartphone to read or compose a text can take the driver’s hands and eyes away from the road, resulting in a devastating distracted driving crash. Or, for instance, a motorist’s decision to speed or tailgate another vehicle on a neighborhood street or on the highway may lead to a multi-vehicle wreck.
At the Benenati law Firm, we are committed to providing personalized representation to each of our clients and working tirelessly on every case we take. A dedicated Apopka car accident attorney at our firm can speak with you today about your claim.
Getting the Facts About Car Accidents in Apopka
How often do car accidents happen in Apopka, and who is responsible for personal injuries?

In total, motor vehicle collisions resulted in more than 254,000 injuries across the state and more than 3,100 fatalities. More than 9,000 of the reported accidents involved pedestrians and more than 6,000 involved bicyclists.

If you were involved in a crash caused by another motorist’s negligence, you should seek help with your claim from an Apopka car accident lawyer.
Statute of Limitations in an Apopka Car Crash
In the immediate aftermath of a motor vehicle crash, filing a car accident claim is probably one of the last things on your mind. We know that you are trying to heal physically and emotionally from the crash, and working with healthcare providers to learn whether you will ever be able to return to work. However, the statute of limitations (Fla. Stat. § 95.11) requires that you file your lawsuit within a specific period of time, or else you can be barred from obtaining compensation.
For most car accident claims, the statute of limitations is four (4) years. That clock usually begins “running” on the date of the accident. You must file your claim before it “runs out.” Although four years might sound like a long time, it is important to begin working with a lawyer as soon as possible. We can begin gathering evidence and building the best possible case for you to obtain financial compensation.

Don’t Just Take Our Word For It
Robert and Joyce W.
“We were very impressed with professionalism no matter who we spoke to when we called the office. We were always treated with respect and kindness. The process was very smooth and there were no surprises. The whole procedure was explained beforehand and the process was exactly as explained. We were very embarrassed at having to file bankruptcy but Mr. Benenati and his staff always made us feel at ease and helped us to maintain our dignity through a very difficult time. We cannot thank them enough for helping us to get a fresh start!”
