When someone is injured in a car accident, premises liability or slip and fall, we would take the following issues into consideration when determining what a particular case is worth:
The complexity of the accident as well as the particular injuries sustained will determine the time frame of the outcome. We resolve our client’s cases based on an understanding of their current and future medical conditions. Once our law firm becomes involved, the average car or auto accident case is resolved within eight to 12 months.
In Florida, you may recover compensation from another even if you contributed to the accident or your injuries. However, the amount you may be entitled to will be reduced by the percentage of your own fault.
To have a legitimate personal injury claim, the victim must have been injured from the negligence of another individual or entity. Negligence occurs when an individual fails to exercise a reasonable standard of care for the safety of others. If a person fails to act as a reasonable person would, he or she may be liable for any resulting damages.
You should contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible following your accident. Injury victims only have a short period of time to file a claim. Failure to file within this time period, known as the statute of limitations, can bar the victim from ever recovering compensation for their injuries.
