How much time do I have after a Florida truck accident to file a lawsuit?

Truck accidents in Florida are part of the general negligence scheme, controlled by a four-year statute of limitations. That means four years after the accident you must either have had a settlement or you have to have a lawsuit filed. Once the lawsuit is filed, then you’re in good shape because the lawsuit can go on a month, six months, two years, whatever, and you’re okay. But it’s four years to file a claim if there’s not been a settlement.
