What Is A Personal Injury Case?
If you got hurt, and someone else was at least partially at fault, you may be entitled to compensation. Almost all personal injury cases involve someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. If someone had a duty of care, and they failed to uphold that duty, resulting in harm to you, that is the basis for a personal injury lawsuit.
Types Of Personal Injury Cases
Personal injuries take many forms, from motor vehicle accidents to dangerous property conditions to fatal accidents and more. Our attorney handles a broad range of personal injury claims, including:
- Neck and back pain
- Whiplash injuries
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Bone fractures
- Ligament injuries
- Seatbelt burn
- Drunk driving accidents
- Car crashes
- Wrongful death
- Property owner negligence
- Slip-and-fall accidents and trip-and-fall accidents
- Inadequate security
- Restaurant or bar owner negligence
If the negligent party or insurance company refuses to provide full and fair compensation to our client, we will not hesitate to take the case to trial.
What Can I Seek Compensation (Damages) For?
Personal injury law gives accident victims the right to sue for damages (compensation) if their injuries resulted from someone else’s negligence. You may be able to recover compensation for:
- Your medical bills
- Your lost paychecks for missed work due to the injury
- Your rehabilitation and related expenses
- Your property damage
- Your pain and suffering
Our lawyer can review your situation to determine whether you have a personal injury case and, if so, what kinds of compensation you can pursue.
Ways Insurance Companies Try To Deny Your Claim
There are a few different ways that insurance companies can try to deny your claim. One way is by denying that the accident even happened. They may say that you were not injured in the accident, or that the injuries you suffered were not caused by the accident.
Another way they can try to deny your claim is by saying that you were not acting reasonably at the time of the accident. For example, if you were driving drunk and got into an accident, the insurance company may say that you are not entitled to compensation because you were not behaving reasonably.
Finally, the insurance company may try to argue that you are actually responsible for causing the accident yourself, and therefore should not be compensated. This is known as contributory negligence. If it is determined that you were even partially responsible for the accident, you may not be able to recover any damages from the insurance company.
Hurt In Florida But Live Out Of State?
If you were injured while on vacation in Florida, it’s important to speak with a Florida-based attorney about your rights. Florida law will govern your ability to seek compensation through a personal injury or car accident claim. Our lawyer regularly represents out-of-state tourists who got hurt in Florida.
We Can Take On The Insurance Company While You Focus On Your Health
An important thing to understand after an accident is that the insurance company is in business to make money, not necessarily to provide you with the compensation you need for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs resulting from the accident. Our lawyer has extensive experience handling insurance claims, and we know what steps to take to help ensure that our clients receive full and fair compensation.
Keep in mind that the job of an insurance adjuster is to ask you questions that are designed to reduce the amount of compensation you receive. However, when we handle your personal injury claim, we handle all communications with the insurance company to make certain that no mistakes are made along the way. We also help you get medical treatment and obtain the medical records needed to maximize your compensation.
