Florida Personal Injury Attorney With Proven Track Record of Success

In almost all cases, you are eligible to file an insurance claim or lawsuit after suffering accident injuries caused by the negligence of another person.

To prove a personal injury case in Florida, you must prove negligence through showing:

  • The at-fault party had a duty of care to protect you.
  • He failed to uphold this duty, meaning he was negligent.
  • This negligence caused your injuries.
  • You suffered actual damages due to your injuries.

Car accident lawsuits are generally not allowable under Florida law unless you can prove serious injuries/permanent disfigurement.

Proving a personal injury case, whether to the insurance company or in court, requires evidence. This is why it is so important to preserve any potential evidence after an accident. Evidence in a personal injury case may include:

  • Reports from authorities such as animal control or police
  • Your medical records showing injuries
  • Eyewitness reports
  • Pictures of the scene

Negligence can cause injuries in a wide variety of ways. If you suffered injuries due to the negligence of another person, you have a right to recover compensation for your physical, emotional, and financial damages. In order to get compensation for these damages, you will need to file a homeowner’s or business insurance claim against the negligent party. Primerus offers expert Florida personal injury lawyers that offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Allowable damages in personal injury cases include all medical care costs, past and future lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Florida’s statute of limitations is significantly longer than many states, giving you four years from the date of the injury to settle an insurance claim or file a civil lawsuit against the negligent party. If your case is against a municipal or state government agency, the statute of limitations is three years.

Even though this might seem like a long time, it is a good idea to get started as soon as possible after an accident in case you run into any roadblocks. Work closely with a Florida personal injury attorney throughout this process to ensure you properly preserve evidence and do not hurt your case in any way, such as through giving an insurance adjuster a recorded statement.

Remember that you should keep up with your medical care throughout the process or the adjuster might claim that you are faking or exaggerating your injuries. Your health insurance or other policies should cover your medical care until you receive your settlement.

A personal injury lawsuit only becomes necessary if the insurance company denies your claim or refuses to offer a fair settlement. Your Florida personal injury attorney will advise you on if or when it is necessary in your case. You may continue negotiations, but your case may go to trial at a Florida court.

Speak with an Experienced Florida Personal Injury Attorney

If you suffered injuries in a medical malpractice, dog bite, slip and fall, or dangerous drug or product case, a Florida personal injury attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve. And because most personal injury attorneys offer free consultations and work on a contingency basis (they only receive money if you win your case), it truly is risk-free.
