Why Must I Act Quicker After A Car Accident?!

After a car accident, taking the necessary steps quickly is very important. Getting medical treatment as quickly as you can never changes. Your health is most important and I always recommend getting checked after an accident by an experienced and qualified provider. This is to assess your injuries and make sure you do not hurt yourself any further. However, what about your accident claim for compensation? Now, more than ever, it is important that you act more quickly and there is a large reason why.

Major Florida Tort Reform 2023 Change

At the end of March in 2023, Govenor Ron DeSantis signed into law HB 837: Civil Remedies which brought sweeping tort reform in Florida. The new law introduces significant changes to how lawsuits are litigated in Florida. One of the largest changes is the statute of limitation for a car accident claim. The statute of limitations sets the amount of time after an injury that a party may file a lawsuit. HB 837 reduces the statute of limitations for general negligence actions, such as car accidents, from four years to two years.

How Does Florida Tort Reform Affect You?

With the new changes with the statute of limitation, your time to act is essentially cut in half. Meaning, if you do not react in time, your claim may be forever barred. Parties, and their counsel, will have to have their claims in line that much quicker. This means determining liability, damages, gathering evidence and so much more in a much shorter period of time. Therefore, it is very important that you move forward in the most efficient manner so you have the best chance of getting the compensation that you deserve.
