Florida’s Statute of Limitations Affects All Injury Lawsuits
Slip and fall accident claimants generally have four years to file their lawsuits, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a). Yet, this deadline allows certain exceptions. For instance, per Florida Statutes § 95.051, if the liable party fled the state, this could grant you an extension.

What Should I Avoid After Slipping and Falling in Palm Beach County?
After suffering harm, you should avoid:
- Giving a recorded statement. The insurance company may say this is necessary to get what you’re owed. It’s not. You don’t have to give the insurance company any additional information than what’s necessary.
- Posting about your situation online. Anything you post on social media could come back to haunt you. For instance, if you post “I’m feeling great!” yet claim to be paralyzed, this information could make it difficult to pursue damages.
- “Toughing it out.” Even if you think you can treat your own injuries with DIY methods, it’s still important to seek medical help. You need information to support your case, and visiting a healthcare provider accomplishes that.
