Florida law gives you a deadline for the amount of time you have to make a legal claim to be compensated for your e-bike accident. If you miss the deadline, then your claim could become worthless.
What is the deadline? Generally, if your e-bike accident happened in Florida, then Florida law gives you two years from the date of your e-bike accident in order to file a lawsuit against the parties responsible. But there are exceptions that could make the deadline even shorter. Please note this timeframe used to be four years, but Florida law was just changed in 2023.
If your e-bike accident occurred in another state, then the deadline could be shorter. If the e-biker died in the Florida accident, the Florida law time limit for bringing a claim related to the death is only two years from the date of the death.
If your claim is against the government (the person who struck you was an employee of state or local government, who was working at the time), there is a shorter time deadline that may apply. It takes a lot of preparation and investigation for me to bring your e-bike claim, so you should contact me right away. Don’t wait until the deadline is approaching.
