The window to file a wrongful death lawsuit—known as the “statute of limitations”—is two years. It’s critical to remember that this is much shorter than the four-year statute of limitations for most personal injury lawsuits.
Under Florida law, if the personal representative does not file the wrongful death lawsuit within that two-year statute of limitations, their right to hold the negligent party accountable and receive compensation for the unnecessary loss of a loved one will expire.
