When Can I Sue For a Personal Injury Claim?

According to Florida law, a personal injury claim is a means to prosecute your legal rights following an accident or injury that was caused by someone else’s negligence. You are entitled to compensation for the financial burden incurred because of injuries experienced in an accident, or the death of your breadwinner as a result of an accident. You will file a lawsuit against the person, company, or entity at fault. 

Types of personal injury cases we have successfully handled include: 

What Does a Personal Injury Case Involve? 

Because there are two sides to a personal injury lawsuit, your Palm Beach County personal injury lawyer will use a two-pronged approach to win your case. 

  1. Proving that the defendant was negligent. First by verifying that they had a duty to prevent harm to you. Second, that they breached their duty by not foreseeing risks that should be obvious to a reasonable person with the same duty of care and/or mitigating those risks from becoming a reality. Third, that you were injured because of that person who owed a duty and failed to do so. Finally, fourth, by demonstrating that your injuries were a direct and proximate result of the above.
  2. Proving that the plaintiff (you) has been injured or harmed (physical, psychological, or financial loss) and establishing the amount of damages required to overcome the loss you have endured from the accident. 

A personal injury claim seeks reimbursement for costs/damages incurred because of your injury:

  • Immediate and future medical bills 

  • Lost earnings and/or loss of earning capacity 

  • Pain and suffering associated with your injury and the required medical treatment 

  • Emotional distress linked to your mental and emotional state post-accident 

  • Loss of consortium (companionship) if the accident killed your partner or resulted in the termination of your relationship 

  • Punitive damages to penalize particularly egregious defendants.
