What is the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death claim?

In Florida, it’s two years. Within that two year period, you have to investigate the accident. If there’s going to be a claim brought, a personal representative needs to be appointed, and he needs to file the claim on behalf of all survivors. Remember, it’s two years from the date of death. Failure to do so will hurt the claim, and you may not be able to file it ever, absent some exceptions such as fraud.
