I have just found out that the filing period for small claims seems to be longer than for civil court in BH. In CA too? For personal injury you can file up to 2 years after the incident. Contracts and some other issues are 3 years or more depending.
For more information and filing:

  1. Very interesting regarding individuals who try to deceitfully protect their assets when involved in negligent behaviors in the guise of an LLC…
    Apparently it can be done when negligence is involved.

    For business owners who think they can form a limited liability company and avoid personal liability, a Florida appellate court has a message: THINK AGAIN! Just as an individual corporate officer may be held personally liable for negligence, so may a member of a limited liability company (LLC) be held personally liable for negligence.
    In Estate of Canavan v. National Healthcare Corp., 2004 Fla. App. LEXIS 10998 (Fla. 2nd DCA, July 23, 2004, Case No. 2D02-2438), the trial court granted a directed verdict in favor of a member of an LLC that operated a nursing home. The trial court accepted the LLC member’s argument that he could not be held personally liable as a managing member of the LLC, or as an officer of the corporation that was manager of the LLC, without piercing the corporate veil.
    The appellate court reversed on the basis that negligence is tortious conduct which is not shielded from personal liability, hence it was not necessary to pierce the corporate veil in order to keep the alleged individual tortfeasor/member in the lawsuit as an individual party defendant. The court cited a 1999 Florida case that held officers of a corporation may be personally liable for their own torts even if their acts are performed as corporate officers. Fla. Specialty, Inc. v. H 2 Ology, Inc., 742 So.2d 523 (Fla. 1st DCA 1999).
