Home to Wikeva springs and that large empty building off of I4, Altamonte Springs is a common destination for tourist and a popular spot for the locals. Interstate 4 is a heavily congested road that cuts through this area and automobile wrecks are fairly common. Many people assume their car insurance will take care of all their expenses: unfortunately this is not always the case. If you have been injured in a car accident in Altamonte Springs, FL, Attorneys Franklin & Stites may be able to help.
Time Limits To File A Claim For Your Altamonte Springs Auto Accident
There are two time limits that you should be aware of if you are thinking of pursing a claim against the at fault driver. The first is that you must seek medical treatment within 14 days after the crash. This will allow you to tap into your own personal injury protection insurance which should allocate up to $10,000 to pay for medical expenses and lost wages. This is the notorious Florida no fault insurance that has been in effect for over 30 years. As long as you have car insurance these benefits should be in place no matter who was at fault. The second is you have up to four years to file suit for compensation for your injuries. The Florida statute of limitations prevents a suit from being filed after the 4 year mark. So after that time there is nothing we can do to help.
