Daytona Beach Car Accident Lawyer

Florida Car Accident Attorney Assisting Clients in Daytona Beach

Nobody in Daytona Beach gets behind the wheel of a car and expects to be involved in a serious car accident. However, car crashes happen in Florida more often than they should. Most of the time, car wrecks occur because of another driver’s negligence. There are numerous ways in which a driver can be negligent and responsible for a serious collision, from distracted driving or intoxicated driving to drowsy driving late at night on I-4 or I-95. Car accidents on Florida’s east coast involve Florida residents and visitors alike.

Whether you live in Florida and recently sustained injuries in a crash or got hurt in a car accident while you were on vacation, an experienced Daytona Beach car accident lawyer can assist with your case.

Statute of Limitations for Filing a Car Accident Claim in Daytona Beach

Many car accident injury victims begin the process of seeking financial compensation by filing an auto insurance claim. If the insurance claim does not result in full compensation, the injury victim may be eligible to file a lawsuit. Under Florida law (Fla. Stat. § 95.11), anyone who is injured in a car accident typically has four years from the date of the injury to file a claim for compensation.

Although four years might seem like a significant amount of time, it can take a long time to go through an insurance claim process before you know if you will need to file a lawsuit. In addition, the longer you wait to file, the more likely it is that evidence will be lost in your case. You should not hesitate to begin working with a car accident attorney in Daytona Beach.
