In Florida, the statute of limitations for most personal injury claims is four years from the date of the injury. This means that if you've been injured, you have four years to initiate legal proceedings. If you fail to file your lawsuit within this time frame, you may lose your right to seek compensation.
Florida operates under a no-fault insurance system. This means that after most traffic accidents, your own insurance policy will compensate you for medical expenses and lost income, irrespective of who was at fault. However, in severe injury cases, you might be able to step outside this no-fault system and file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver.
Florida follows a pure comparative negligence rule. If you're found to be partially at fault for your injury, your compensation may be reduced by a percentage equal to your share of the blame. For instance, if you're found to be 20% at fault, you can still recover 80% of your total damages.
In Florida, you can seek compensation for both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages include tangible costs like medical bills and lost wages, while non-economic damages cover intangibles like pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
The duration varies based on the complexity of the case, the parties involved, and the evidence. While some cases might settle quickly, others, especially those that go to trial, can take months or even years to resolve.
We operate on a contingency fee basis. This means that we only get paid if you win your case or secure a settlement. Typically, the fee is a percentage of the compensation you receive.
First, prioritize your safety and seek medical attention. Then, if possible, document the scene, take photographs, gather witness information, and report the incident to the police or relevant authorities. It's also advisable to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
If you're hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver in Florida, you can turn to your own insurance policy's uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. This coverage can help compensate for your injuries and damages.
Pain and suffering are subjective and can be challenging to quantify. Evidence such as medical records, therapy sessions, personal journals, and testimonies from friends and family can help establish the extent of your pain and suffering.
