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
“The Benenati law firm makes you believe that you are the single most important PERSON (not case) to them. Throughout the entire process, they maintained weekly contact with me, asking how I was doing or if I needed anything. I was provided with frequent updates as to how my case was progressing and was pleasantly surprised with the speed at which they were able to reach a substantial settlement. I've had the unfortunate experience of dealing with other well-known personal injury attorneys in Orlando who were unable to provide the level of expertise, care and service that Walter Benenati and his team can!”
“I would like to thank the Benenati Law Firm for helping to take the stress out of dealing with the insurance company and for everyone being very professional and always available to take my calls. The speed of the case being closed exceeded my expectations and any future needs I will definitely be contacting them.”
“My experience with the Benenati Law Firm in Orlando was a great experience. They helped right away after a heartbreaking experience at another law firm. THEY MADE MORE PROGRESS IN MY CASE IN TWO MONTHS THAN 2 YEARS WITH MY FORMER LAW FIRM. I am so grateful.”
