The vast majority of people can’t go it alone after an accident involving personal injury. Virtually everyone who has been injured due to someone else’s negligence needs help if they are to recover everything they deserve from the at-fault parties. Florida personal injury cases have a tendency to be complex and time consuming. In order to win such a case, the Land O’ Lakes Car Accident Attorney you choose will have to work hard to prove several aspects of your case.
Your attorney will have to prove that the injuries you are claiming were specifically the result of your particular accident. They also will have to prove that the actions of the other party were negligent, and they violated their legal duty to exercise reasonable care. Also, they will have to prove that without the actions of the responsible party, the injuries would not have been sustained anyway. These points can be difficult to prove. Doing so requires an attorney with a thorough knowledge of the law, and the ability to present the case succinctly.
All personal injury lawsuits must also be filed before a certain deadline known as the statute of limitations. The limit for filing most personal injury claims is four years in Florida, but various factors can make the statute of limitations either shorter or longer. An experienced personal injury attorney knows these details, so they can make sure everything is handled properly and to your greatest benefit.
Florida is a pure comparative negligence state. This means the judge or jury can assign a percentage of fault to each party in the accident. Therefore, if you are found to be 30% at-fault, you will be limited to recovering 70% of your damages from the accident. In this scenario, let’s say the jury would have awarded you $100,000, if you were 0% at-fault. However, since the jury has determined you to be 30% at-fault, then the amount you are awarded is reduced by 30%. This means your award would be $70,000 because of comparative negligence.
You will need a highly skilled personal injury attorney to make sure you get the maximum amount of compensation to which you’re entitled by limiting that percentage to the lowest extent possible.
There are a great many other details that have to be considered in any Florida personal injury case as well. The facts must be examined in great detail to determine what happened and quite often the attorney may find that a number of additional parties share fault in your accident. The ability to identify all parties with potential liability may be very important when it comes to maximizing a recovery for your injuries and damages. This is especially true if insurance is involved because most insurance policies have limits.
To file any personal injury lawsuit in Florida, it’s necessary to file a claim in the county where the accident occurred or where one or more of the defendants reside. Therefore, if you have a claim in Land O’ Lakes that must be brought in Pasco County, you will need a personal injury attorney with solid knowledge of the courts in this area. This is why the Land O’ Lakes Personal Injury Attorneys at Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group are an excellent choice.
