If you or a loved one have been hurt, you are justified in following through with a case to collect compensation. Since it can be difficult to prove fault in some instances, it is important to consult with an attorney first.
Many lawyer referral services are only partly regulated by the Florida Bar, and accordingly can make advertisements, claims, and statements that don’t pass Bar scrutiny. Lawyers, however, must stay in compliance with Florida Bar statutes.
If you can demonstrate that the burden of responsibility rests more on the other party than it does due to your own fault, then you can still file a personal injury claim in a Court of Law. Speak with us first.
Every personal injury claim is unique, and so circumstances differ on a case by case basis. However, damages can include medical expenses, loss of future income, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of ability to enjoy life following the accident.
Do not give statements or discuss the accident with the "at-fault" driver or their attorney. Remember: "What you say can and will be used against you!" Instruct them to call your attorney or insurance company directly.
The most important thing is to get well, see your doctor, and follow your doctor's orders. Besides this, take photos of your injuries, the accident scene, write down a narrative of the event, and make a list of witnesses and their contact information.
A personal injury is a serious harmful act to a person as a result of someone else’s negligence. It's possible that you are entitled to rights and benefits for your pain and suffering.
