Understanding Liability in Florida Personal Injury Claims
As a victim filing a claim against a liable party, you are responsible for proving fault. We understand this can seem intimidating, but we can help you build a solid claim to demonstrate the following:
- The at-fault party owed you a duty to care for your safety
- They neglected this duty by acting irresponsibly
- This negligence directly caused the accident and your injuries
- Your injuries resulted in damages
Oftentimes in personal injury cases, all parties involved share a portion of the responsibility, so Florida uses a comparative negligence system to determine fault and subsequent compensation. Each party receives a percentage of the fault for the accident, which gets deducted from their damages. For example, if you were found 25% at fault in a car accident for speeding, your compensation would be reduced by 25%.
Unfortunately, insurance companies may try to assign you an unfair fault percentage to offer you a low settlement. We understand their tactics, so we work tirelessly to build a solid claim with undeniable evidence that ensures you receive just compensation for your injuries.
Have You Been
Injured in an Accident?
What Damages Could You Potentially Recover for a Lauderhill Personal Injury Claim?
Injuries you suffer from another person’s negligence can affect every aspect of your life, and these damages deserve recognition. Depending on the severity of your injuries and the details of your case, you may recover the following economic and non-economic damages:
- Pain and suffering
- Ambulance ride fees
- Hospital costs
- Current and future medical bills
- Property damage
- Emotional distress
- Rehabilitation and physical therapy
- Assistive medical devices
- Lost wages from missed work
- Loss of consortium
Economic damages, like medical bills and lost wages, are often simple to calculate, but non-economic ones, like pain and suffering, can be more difficult. Our knowledgeable lawyers understand how to accurately determine your claim’s worth so that you may receive fair compensation for your injuries.
You may also receive punitive damages if the liable party acted with malicious intent. These damages act more as a punishment for the defendant than a reward for the victim. While you cannot request these damages, we may present evidence that proves the at-fault party acted maliciously. Our attentive lawyers leave no detail overlooked, giving you the confidence that your claim is in capable hands.
