Florida Statute of Limitiations for Premises Liability

July 10, 2009

The following is an expert answer given by Florida Premises Liability Lawyer, Joseph M. Maus, and taken from AllExperts.com, a free Q & A service on the internet:

Subject: My son  fell in a well hole.

Question: My son fell in a well hole when he was 22 months old. He is 6 years old now. He was trapped there for thirteen hours before he was rescued. It happened on someone else’s land. Do I have a case after all of this time?

Answer: It depends on where you live.  I am an attorney in Florida, so I can only tell you about Florida laws.  The Florida statute of limitations on negligence claims has a 4 year limit.  If you are going to bring a negligence claim in Florida, you have to bring it within 4 years from the date the accident/injury occurred.  Other statutes of limitations may apply depending on the type claim your son has.

My advice to you is to speak to an attorney in your area that specializes in negligence claims, and do it as soon as possible.  Most personal injury lawyers will give you a free initial consultation, so you have nothing to lose in speaking to an attorney.  But again, do it as soon as possible because you have already waited a long time.

For more information about the Florida statute of limitations and how it affects your claim, contact Florida premises liability lawyer, Joseph M. Maus at 1-866-556-5529, visit his website at http://www.jmmlawyers.com, or email him today.
