What is a personal injury lawsuit?
This is a type of civil lawsuit that can be filed when the negligent, reckless or intentional conduct of a person or entity causes an accident that results in a personal injury. My.Attorney routinely handles a wide range of claims resulting from:
- Automobile accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Bus accidents
- Construction accidents
- Defective products
- Motorcycle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Nursing home negligence
- Train accidents
- Truck accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Premises liability
- Wrongful death
It is important to note that a personal injury claim may or may not lead to a court trial. Such claims are often resolved through a complicated negotiation process with an insurance company. Nonetheless, insurers have an unfair advantage over injury victims and are known for denying claims or paying out as little as possible. Rest assured, if an insurer fails to offer you a fair and reasonable settlement, we will take them to court.
No matter the size of your case, the team at My.Attorney will make sure you receive just compensation. In addition, all injury cases are handled on a contingency basis, which means you don’t pay us if we don’t win. Download the My.Attorney app today to set up a consultation.
Do I have a valid personal injury claim?
All residents of Florida — and visitors to the state — have a legal obligation to act in a reasonable manner and avoid causing injuries to others. In legal terms, this is known as a “duty of care.” To have a valid claim, we must be able to prove that (1) the other party owed you a duty of care, (2) he or she breached that duty, and (3) as a result you sustained an injury. Finally, we must also be able to show that you suffered actual damages, such as lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, property damage and other losses.
How much is my personal injury case worth?
The value of an injury claim depends on factors such as the type of accident, and the nature of your injuries. You may be awarded compensation for economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages cover actual financial losses (e.g. lost wages, medical expenses, loss of earning capacity), while non-economic damages are awarded for pain and suffering, permanent disability, loss of enjoyment of life, and similar harm.
It is important to point out that Florida is known as a “pure” comparative negligence state, which means you can recover damages regardless of whether you were partially at fault for the accident. However, the amount of your award will be reduced by the percentage of blame assigned to you. As an example, if you were injured in a car accident and the amount of your damages was assessed at $10,000, but you are found to be 20 percent at fault, the final amount of your reward will be $8,000. In any event, the personal injury attorneys at My.Attorney will work tirelessly to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve.
