Slip and Fall Statute of Limitations in Florida

Florida’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims vary depending on the type of claim you wish to bring. The type of defendant, location of the incident, type of accident, and whether a government entity was involved all make a major difference in the grace period you have to file a claim.

In the state of Florida, slip and fall accidents occurring on another person or business’ property are governed by a four-year statute of limitations. This applies when you are not the property owner or resident, nor an employee in the case of private businesses. This four-year time limit starts from the date of the related injury.
