Establishing a Liable Party
After a car accident, it is natural to find yourself feeling lost and confused. Legal and financial troubles are abundant when a victim experiences something as serious as a knee injury. The first step towards seeking justice lies in a complete analysis of the facts. When you get in touch with a lawyer from our firm, and they begin their creation of your case, they will start to investigate the accident that caused your injuries.
As part of this process, your lawyer will often work to obtain photo and video documentation, police reports, witness interviews, and anything else that can shed more light on the origins of the accident. All you need to do at this time is prioritize your health. We’ve got you covered.
Legal teams collect all types of evidence to strengthen their clients’ positions while simultaneously striving to establish a liable party. If you are suffering from a knee injury due to the irresponsible actions of another party, you may have the right to gather financial awards. However, establishing a liable party is necessary before seeking any potential settlement amounts.
Going After Monetary Awards and Recoverable Damages
Some reckless acts, such as excess speed, can make liability easier to establish. Looking at the information presented by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), it is clear that speeding is one of the most reckless behaviors a driver can engage in. As the NHTSA points out, speeding was responsible for claiming the lives of more than 9,000 Americans in the year 2018.
When drivers put themselves and others at risk of wrongful death or personal injury through speeding and other negligent acts, they may assume liability for an accident and its damages. Other factors can impact liability, such as road conditions, vehicle trouble, and state-specific laws. One of our lawyers will update you along the way as they examine these factors and others in detail.
Examples of Recoverable Damages
You may be entitled to collect monetary awards for recoverable damages such as the following:
- Lost income
- Diminished earning capacity
- Property damage
- Ongoing medical bills
- Surgeries and exams
- Psychological damage
- Therapy and rehabilitation
- And more if you qualify
Accounting for Time-Sensitive Laws and Statutes
According to the information presented in Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a), a victim who sustains a personal injury in an accident that occurred in the state of Florida maintains the right to build a case, but only within a certain amount of time. You generally have four years to file a personal injury lawsuit.
Statutes and other state laws like this one can have a major impact on a victim’s ability to seek justice after a car accident. If you are looking to reduce your exposure to risks like these, then contacting a legal team promptly after an accident can help you do so.
