    Default Can a Subpoena Be Left at My Front Door if I'm Not Home

    My question involves court procedures for the state of: Florida
    An insurance company is trying to sue myself and a family member for damages in an accident I was said to be at fault for (even though the other person hit me) because I didn't have bodily injury coverage. My family member's attorney said (on May 17) that I should just avoid being served since the statue of limitations is going to be up at the end of the month. It's 6/3 and someone left a court notice I was told at my front door. Can they do that and does that count as me being served? What is the actual statue of limitations on something like this?

    Yes and yes. You need not sign, it could have also been sent regular mail.

    Depends on the sort of case. What did your lawyer say about the SOL?

    Since I have to pay, I haven't asked my attorney yet. In regards to this situation do you know the SOL?
