Injured in a Car Crash? We Can Help

On average, a person will experience at least one accident in his or her life where someone is injured. While the majority of such accidents do not result in death or serious injury, the injured party is usually entitled to recover for losses sustained as a result of the accident. That said, when someone you love is injured in a car accident, it is important to have the right Fort Myers car accident lawyer on your side.

If you were involved or injured in a motor vehicle accident in Fort Myers, special Florida car accident laws apply to your case. It is important to have an experienced attorney on your side to help you seek the justice that you and your family deserve when an automobile accident injury or death occurs because of another driver's carelessness. At the Spivey Law Firm, Personal Injury Attorneys, P.A., we take your case personally. Your case will be handled directly by Randall L. Spivey, the President and founder of the firm, and a top Florida car accident lawyer. 

The Statute of Limitations for Car Accident Cases

In Florida, you generally have four years from the date of the accident to file suit for your injuries before your claim becomes “time barred” and cannot be filed. Wrongful death actions, however, are limited to two years. The right car accident lawyer knows how to properly calculate and make use of the time you have to file your case. It is important to note, however, that if you are a Florida resident whose accident occurred outside the state, the state in which the accident occurred may have a shorter statute of limitations and the case is typically governed by where the accident took place, not where you live.  Contact Randall Spivey and his team to find out how our office can assist you with that particular situation.
