Do you have a Valid Claim?
Almost all South Florida personal injury claims center on negligence. If you can show that another party acted negligently, and this action caused your injuries, you could have a valid personal injury claim.
Per Florida Statutes §95.11, you generally have four years from the date of your accident to file an injury lawsuit. However, the statute of limitations may be shorter in some cases, so it pays to contact us as soon as possible after getting hurt.

How can You Prove the other Party Caused Your South Florida Injuries?
Proving negligence requires providing evidence that:
- The other party owed you a certain level of care, such as to keep the floor of a restaurant free from spills or to obey all traffic laws;
- The other party failed to provide this level of care;
- This caused you to suffer injuries in a fall, crash, or another accident; and
- You suffered actual physical or financial injuries because of the accident.
Proving negligence is critical to winning your personal injury case.
You can still Pursue Damages if You were Partially at Fault
In many cases, both parties contribute to an accident. If you acted in a way that contributed to your own injuries — texting while walking, for example — it might affect how much compensation you can obtain.
Florida law recognizes a pure comparative fault theory, which means you can still recover compensation even if you were 99 percent at fault. Yet, your percentage of fault will reduce your settlement.
What can You Expect when Filing a Fort Lauderdale Accident Claim?
Accidents can have devastating consequences for victims, as well as their families and friends. The physical and emotional pain and suffering, long hospital stays, medical expenses, and significant time off work can take a huge toll on everyone involved.
For many families, the steep medical bills and lost earnings resulting from an accident lead to a desperate financial situation. Luckily, the victims of Fort Lauderdale personal injury accidents can obtain compensation to cover their damages.
In many cases, we can recover compensation for your injuries by filing a third-party insurance claim based on the at-fault party’s auto liability, homeowner’s, or business insurance policy. However, for your claim to be successful:
We must Gather Evidence to Support Your Testimony
After analyzing your case, we go to work collecting evidence and calculating the value of your losses. Evidence varies from case to case but may include:
- Accident reports
- Eyewitness statements
- Your medical records
- Medical bills
- Documentation of missed work and lost wages
- Pictures of the accident scene and your injuries
- Video of the incident, if possible
We will notify the Insurance Company of Your Situation
Based on the evidence we find, we will send a demand letter to the insurance company. This document lays out your case and provides proof of your economic and non-economic damages. It will also include information about:
- How your accident happened
- The details of your injuries
- The names of those involved
- How you want your case to be resolved
We will Attempt to Negotiate a Settlement
In most cases, the insurance company contemplates your terms and comes back with a lower amount. This begins negotiations, which continue until we reach a fair settlement.
Occasionally, we cannot reach a fair settlement without taking further legal action. If the insurance company refuses to offer enough compensation to cover your losses, we can file a lawsuit to resolve your case.
This sometimes prompts it to offer a higher settlement amount. The American Bar Association (ABA) says that most cases are resolved in this manner. If your case does not conclude in this way, however, the court can decide on your case and award any deserved compensation.
