A personal injury case is a lawsuit in which an individual has been seriously harmed due to the negligent actions of another individual or entity. This can include premises liability, in which a property owner has allowed a hazard to go uncorrected, as well as drunk driver causing an accident.
Regardless of the cause of your injury, you can expect to receive the same level of dedicated service.
If the other party is found to be responsible for your injuries, they will be liable for your damages. Your compensation may include:
The statute of limitations in Florida requires you to file your personal injury lawsuit within four years of the date of your accident.
The amount of damages you are awarded depends on your role and liability in the accident. Florida follows comparative negligence law. If you are partially responsible for your accident, your damages will be reduced. However, if you have been in a minor automobile accident that did not result in a serious injury, damages are paid by each party's own insurance company since Florida is a no-fault state.
In order to secure damages, you are responsible for proving that the other party was negligent and that their actions led to your injuries. It is important to note that the statute of limitations in Florida requires you to file your personal injury lawsuit within four years of the date of your accident.
