Common Florida Personal Injury FAQs

Here are some common questions and answers related to personal injury:

What is a personal injury?

Personal injury is a legal term used to describe an injury to a person’s body, mind, or emotions, as opposed to damage to property. This injury can be caused by the negligence or intentional actions of another party, such as in a car accident, slip and fall, or medical malpractice.

How do I know if I have a personal injury case?

To have a personal injury case, you must have suffered an injury as a result of another party’s negligence or intentional actions. You must be able to prove that the other party had a duty to act reasonably and that they breached that duty, resulting in your injuries. A knowledgeable personal injury attorney can help you determine whether you have a valid case.

How much is my personal injury case worth?

The value of a personal injury case depends on a variety of factors, including the severity of your injuries, the cost of medical treatment, lost wages, and other damages you have suffered. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you evaluate your case and determine its value.

What should I do if I am injured in an accident?

If you are injured in an accident, you should seek medical attention immediately, even if you do not think your injuries are severe. You should also document the accident and any injuries by taking photos, collecting witness statements, and filing a police report if applicable. Speak with a personal injury attorney to understand your legal options.

How long will it take to resolve my personal injury case?

The length of time it takes to resolve a personal injury case depends on a variety of factors, including the complexity of the case, the severity of your injuries, and the willingness of the other party to negotiate a settlement. Some cases can be resolved in a matter of months, while others may take years to reach a resolution.

Should I accept the insurance company's settlement offer?

Before you agree to a lump sum offer, speak with a personal injury attorney before accepting any settlement offer from an insurance company. Insurance companies often make lowball offers in an attempt to settle the case quickly and for less than it is worth. Our law firm can help you evaluate the offer and negotiate a fair settlement.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims varies depending on your case and is generally a maximum of four years in the state of Florida. You have limited time to file a claim after the accident or injury occurred. Speak with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to ensure that you meet all necessary deadlines.
