The statute of limitations for filing a professional malpractice claim in Florida varies depending on the profession involved. For legal malpractice, accountant malpractice, and insurance agent malpractice, the statute of limitations is two years from the time the incident is, or should have been, recognized.
However, for stockbroker malpractice, the statute of limitations extends to four years. This period starts when you discover or reasonably should have discovered the alleged negligence.
Given these time-sensitive constraints, it is crucial to consult with a professional malpractice attorney as soon as possible to ensure you don’t miss the filing deadline. Legal action initiated after the statute of limitations has expired may be dismissed by the court, leaving you with no recourse for recovery.
