Is there a time limit to file a Florida wrongful death suit?

Return to FAQ Videos


As in every lawsuit in Florida, there are time limits in which you need to file your lawsuit for a wrongful death claim. Typically, a wrongful death claim must be brought within two years of the incident causing the death. It’s important because sometimes these time frames can be changed depending on the facts of the case. You should seek legal advice from a board certified civil trial attorney if you have a wrongful death claim.
