Personal Injury Claims

Taking Full Advantage of Florida Personal Injury Protections

As an active member of society, you regularly go to work, participate in social activities, visit shopping centers and do hundreds of other things. Eventually, you may have a car accident, slip and fall, encounter a vicious dog or otherwise do something that exposes you to a serious injury. Fortunately, you do not have to pay for someone else’s negligent conduct or bad behavior, as Florida personal injury law offers you a variety of protections. If you have suffered an injury, you may have a long recovery process. Because medical treatments and rehabilitation can be costly, you may also have bills you simply cannot pay. A Miami injury attorney can help you assert your legal rights and receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries, pain and other damages. Because the statute of limitations for injuries in the Sunshine State is typically four years, however, you do not want to put off meeting with an experienced attorney.

Negligence Claims

While an individual’s intentional acts may cause you harm, injury cases usually proceed based on negligence theory, meaning the person who caused your injury did not take proper care when doing something. To win a negligence claim, you must prove the following:

• Someone owed you a legal duty
• He or she breached that duty
• The breach was the cause of your injury
• You have an actual injury

While these elements may seem to be straightforward, successfully proving them can be challenging. Making a successful claim requires a careful analysis of both facts and law, so you should not take any negligence matter lightly.

Potential Damages

Depending on the incident that caused you harm, you may have a variety of physical and emotional injuries. You may also have property damage. In an injury case, receiving compensation for the following potential damages may be possible:

• Medical expenses, including past, present and future bills
• Permanent disabilities and life limitations
• Loss of consortium
• Lost wages
• Property damage
• Other costs related to your injury

You must realize that some injury symptoms may not appear immediately. On the contrary, it may take hours, days or weeks for you to realize you have sustained an injury. Therefore, you should always seek medical treatment following any accident. Furthermore, you must be sure you listen to your doctor and heed his or her advice to boost your chances of recovering completely.
