When Do You Need to Declare Damages Following a Car Accident
Reporting a Car AccidentFiling a police report after a car accident is not a declaration of damages. However, any accident resulting in $500 or more worth of damages, injury, or death must be reported to the local police department or the county sheriff if outside city limits. Though this does not ensure compensation, police reports and statements can be used later as evidence in your claim.
Statute of LimitationsA statute of limitations is a time limit set for your right to file a claim for compensation of your damages. The state of Florida has a four-year statute of limitations for car accident claims. This means you have four years from the date the accident occurred to start your claim. If an accident resulted in the death of your loved one there is a two-year statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death suit after a car accident. The death of your loved one may not have occurred on the same day as the accident. In this situation, you have two years from the date the loved one passed away but the death must have been directly caused by the accident.
