Does a victim’s long-term hospitalization after a car accident stay the period of time in which they can file a lawsuit?

“In Florida, the time to file a lawsuit against an adverse party for injuries is four years. If you have uninsured or under-insured motorist coverage, you have five years to file against your UM carrier. This is one of the reasons why it’s very important if you’re seriously injured to have at least a family member contact a lawyer on your behalf so they can decide the best way to proceed with your case. “
