Is There a Notice Requirement to Bring a Case Against the State, County or Municipality in Florida?

Video Transcription:
Florida has a very unusual notice requirement when someone is involved in any type of accident involving a state, county or city vehicle. While you have four years to bring an injury claim, you also have a three year period that you have to file a notice with the entity that you are dealing with.

There are very specific things that need to be in this notice and this must be filed within three years of the date of the accident. And, if you don't file this notice within the three year time span, you can't bring your claim. This is why any lawyer that you deal with must understand this very important step and how this notice requirement works and how it must be filed.
