How Long Do You Have To Hire A Zephyrhills Car Accident Attorney?

A car accident is a stressful and frustrating situation. Zephyrhills is a beautiful community but, car accidents still occur. Most have never been in a car accident before and do not know where to start. If you have been injured in a car accident, you deserve to be compensated. Navigating the process after a car accident, especially when dealing with injuries, can be difficult. Many may wonder, how long do you have to hire a Zephyrhills Car Accident Attorney?

Florida Car Accident Deadlines

In Florida, legal claims are bound by the Statute of Limitations. The Statute of Limitations control how long you have to file a lawsuit. In the State of Florida, you typically have only four years to file a lawsuit for a car accident claim. If a wrongful death occurred in the car accident, then you typically only have two years to file a lawsuit. The time period begins from when the accident occurred.

Each claim is different, be sure to always talk to counsel to see what statute applies. Even though it may seem as though you have time, it is best to contact an experienced Zephyrhills car accident attorney as soon as you can. Evidence can be lost and case details can be made complicated quickly if the proper help is not received from the beginning. Let your attorney get a head start before the insurance companies start building their case against you.

Do I Have To File A Lawsuit After A Zephyrhills Car Accident?

You do not have to file a lawsuit in after a Zephyrhills car accident. The process after an accident starts in what is called pre-suit where the insurance company is given a good-faith opportunity to evaluate your claim and provide you just compensation. Should they not do that, you do have the choice to file a lawsuit. Each case is very different from another. Most cases do not make it past the pre-suit process, meaning the case is resolved and a lawsuit is never even filed. Many cases settle in the process of litigation. Very, very few cases ever make it in front of a jury. Again, you should discuss your accident case with experienced counsel. If you are not represented, never accept an offer without speaking with a car accident attorney. Many, including myself, offer a free no-obligation consultation where that offer can be reviewed at no cost.
