Personal injury accidents happen when you least expect them.

Personal Injury Cases in Florida
Florida personal injury laws provide avenues for people who have survived severe accidents and sustained bodily injuries to receive fair compensation to cover various expenses that result from the accident. A personal injury claim or lawsuit can stem from a reckless, careless, negligent, or intentional act by another party. Victims pursue such claims when the responsible party fails to uphold their duty of care.
Duty of care is a legal obligation we all have to consider others’ safety. We are generally required to act toward others with the watchfulness, attention, caution, and prudence that a reasonable person in these circumstances would use. A person whose actions do not meet the standard of care would be considered negligent. When those actions contribute to a personal injury, your lawyers’s goal is to hold that person liable for the harm they’ve caused you.
Compensation For Personal Injury Victims
If you were hurt because a person breached their duty of care, you deserve legal representation to protect your interests. You’re legally entitled to seek compensation to recover from a variety of losses you incur due to the accident, including, but not limited to:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Property damage
- Physical disfigurement
- Permanent disabilities
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
- Funeral expenses
In some cases of extreme negligence, reckless disregard for the life and safety of others, or intentional harm done, it may be possible to recover punitive damages. Punitive damages may be awarded by the court in cases where compensatory damages may be insufficient. They also serve the purpose of punishing the liable party and setting an example for others to be more careful.
There may be one or more liable parties in your personal injury case, and they may be individuals, corporations, or a combination of the two. When you’re not sure whom to hold responsible for your injuries, you should turn to a knowledgeable lawyer.
