Working Together to Maximize Your Settlement Award
Our lawyers want to work with you to get you the maximum amount of compensation available. Our large team works around-the-clock to ensure that your case is strong and is supported by powerful evidence. We not only investigate your case and gather evidence to support your claim, but also hire experts and consult with specialists throughout the process. We understand the elements of a personal injury claim and how to prove each one, including the duty of care the defendant owed to you, a breach of this duty of care and negligence, causation, and damages.
We are also skilled at defending our clients from claims of shared negligence and fault. When you are accused of contributing to your injuries, the value of your potential compensation award is in jeopardy. You need a skilled attorney on your side who understands this, and understands how to protect you from such allegations.
Why You Need an Injury Attorney
If you have been harmed and think that someone else may be to blame for that harm, you need a general injury attorney. The right attorney can maximize the amount of compensation available to you by assisting you in:
- Determining precisely how your accident happened;
- Identifying any potentially liable parties;
- Opening an investigation to gather evidence;
- Proving fault for the incident;
- Substantiating the amount of damages that you have suffered;
- Negotiating with an insurance company to reach a settlement; and
- Litigating your case in court if out-of-court settlement talks are ineffective.
When You Need an Injury Attorney
You need an injury attorney if:
- You have been involved in an accident, including a car accident, slip and fall accident, motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident, etc.; or
- You have been harmed by another, such as by a doctor or physician, as a result of being bitten by a dog, or in an assault; and
- You have suffered economic or noneconomic losses, such as medical expenses, lost wages, pain, and suffering; and
- You believe that your injuries would not have occurred but for another party’s actions.
If the above facts apply to your case, you have the right to pursue a personal injury claim. This type of claim seeks to hold the at-fault party liable for your harm, resulting in an award of damages (money) for you.
It’s Important that You Act Quickly
No matter the type of injury you have suffered or how it happened, if you think that you may have a personal injury case, reaching out to our general injury lawyers sooner rather than later is advised. This is because you are limited in the amount of time you have to recover compensation. In fact, Florida’s statute of limitations, found in Section 95.11 of the 2018 Florida Statutes, holds that any action founded on negligence must be brought forth within four years from the date of the cause of action. If you wait longer than four years, you will be barred from recovery.
Our lawyers can provide many services, including full claim management. However, if you do not contact our law firm as soon as possible following a serious injury, we may not be able to assist you. This is because the state maintains a strict statute of limitations for personal injury claims; if you wait for the statute to expire before pursuing a civil action, you will be barred from recovery. In Florida, the statute of limitations for a personal injury case is four years from the cause of action. We recommend contacting our law firm immediately to ensure that your case is pursued within this time frame.
