Personal Injury Attorneys Representing Clients in Wesley Chapel, Florida

Were you injured because of someone else’s harmful or careless actions? You may be able to file a personal injury claim.

Many personal cases will begin with an insurance claim, especially if the injury occurred in a motor vehicle collision. If you cannot obtain full compensation through an auto insurance claim, then the next step is usually to file a personal injury lawsuit. Some types of injuries can result in an immediate lawsuit rather than beginning with an insurance claim. A Wesley Chapel personal injury lawyer can discuss your options with you today.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Our firm can represent Wesley Chapel plaintiffs in a wide variety of personal injury cases, including but not limited to the following:

  • Car accidents;
  • Truck accidents;
  • Boat accidents;
  • Motorcycle accidents;
  • Bus accidents;
  • Slips and falls;
  • Negligent security claims;
  • Dog bites; and
  • Wrongful death.

When you have been injured because of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, we know how confusing it can be to figure out how to move forward with your claim and how to seek financial compensation for your losses.

Understanding the Statute of Limitations in a Wesley Chapel Personal Injury Case

If you do have plans to file a personal injury lawsuit, you should know that you will only have a narrow time window in which to file your lawsuit.

According to Florida’s personal injury statute of limitations, most personal injury lawsuits will need to be filed within four years from the date of the crash. If you do not file your lawsuit within that four-year time window, Florida law will say that you have a “time-barred” claim. You might think that four years is a long time, but the months can go by quickly when you are dealing with hospital visits and your physical recovery, as well as negotiating with an insurance company.

Commonly Asked Questions About Wesley Chapel Personal Injury Claims

Should I file an auto insurance claim or a personal injury lawsuit after a motor vehicle crash?

The answer to this question depends on a number of factors, and you should discuss the particular facts of your case with one of our Wesley Chapel personal injury attorneys. Many injury victims will begin this process by filing a first-party auto insurance claim through their own insurance company to be compensated through PIP coverage. When a person sustains a “serious injury” in a collision, Florida law usually permits that party to move forward with a lawsuit against the responsible party.

Is there a time limit on filing a personal injury lawsuit?

Each state has its own statutes of limitations for different types of personal injury claims. In Florida, the statute of limitations for most lawsuits is four years from the date of the injury. However, the length of time can vary depending upon the specific facts of your case. Florida actually has a much longer statute of limitations for most personal injury lawsuits than other states, which tend to be either two or three years from the date of the injury.

Can I file a personal injury lawsuit if my family member was killed in an accident?

At Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group, we represent clients in personal injury lawsuits and wrongful death lawsuits, but it is important to understand the difference between the two types of claims. In a personal injury lawsuit, the injured party is the one who files a claim for compensation. In situations where a person dies from the injuries they sustained, it is not possible to file a personal injury lawsuit. Instead, Florida’s wrongful death law allows another party to “stand in the shoes,” so to speak, of the deceased person and to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. The law recognizes that the injured person, had she or he lived, would have been able to file a personal injury lawsuit. Since that person did not survive, the law recognizes the right of a close family member to seek compensation for losses.
