Why Hire A Florida City Personal Injury Attorney After An Accident?
Lawyers are a resource. After getting hurt by someone’s negligence, our legal team can provide you with vital information about your rights, what steps to take, and what pitfalls to avoid.
In fact, personal injury attorneys can assist with:
- Claims paperwork and filing
- Evidence gathering
- Emails, phone calls, and correspondence
- Vehicle repairs
- Appointment scheduling
- Cataloging losses
- Case strategy
- Lawsuit filings
- Statute of limitations in your case
You go to a doctor for your health. You go to a mechanic for your car. By the same logic, you can contact a personal injury lawyer for a personal injury claim or lawsuit after suffering injuries due to someone else’s actions. They can seek fair compensation from the negligent parties.
Don’t Assume Anything
Did a lack of signage about slowing for an upcoming curve in the road contribute to that truck hitting you? How long did the property owner know there was a puddle before you slipped on it and broke your arm? These are the kinds of questions that you probably won’t know the answer to on your own. You may not even think to ask them.
Part of an attorney’s role is to ask questions like these. We conduct our own investigation, broadening our view of what could have happened to consider contributing factors, alternative causes, and other liable parties.
We also work to prevent you from making other assumptions like:
- You aren’t that hurt – Some injuries take time to show up, and any pain, expenses, or changes to your life should be compensated.
- You must accept a settlement offer – Insurers often lowball you at first, and you are allowed to take time to compare the terms to your accident losses.
- You have to provide a recorded statement to a claims adjuster – You only need to report an accident, giving basic facts like when and where; everything else can get passed along to insurers through our attorneys.
- You only need a lawyer for a lawsuit – We can pursue an insurance claim as well as protect your rights, explore all your compensation options, and save you time and energy.
Don’t Face Insurance Without Back-up
Insurance adjusters do investigate claims, but they do so with the ulterior motive of protecting the company. Some might even act in bad faith by not investigating at all, not honoring the terms of a policy, or deliberately undervaluing your claim.
Even if an insurer acts aboveboard, dealing with them can still cause stress and take up valuable time you should dedicate instead to your recovery. When you hire an attorney to act on your behalf, you can redirect your energy to where you need it.

What Are The Possible Damages For Personal Injury In Florida?
This can depend on the type of accident, but any of your losses are potentially compensable. By “losses,” we mean:
- Medical costs ranging from emergency treatment to rehabilitation
- Long-term expenses like prescriptions and medical equipment
- Lost income from missed work and reduced ability to earn
- Pain and suffering, emotional distress, reduced enjoyment of life
- Wrongful death expenses like a funeral, lost income, and grief
Our lawyers review your losses by going over bills, receipts, pay stubs, and testimony from doctors, therapists, coworkers, friends, and family. We use this evidence to understand how much compensation you deserve. Our team can then use this proof to reject low settlement offers and negotiate for ones that account for everything this accident cost you.
What Is The Deadline For Filing For Personal Injury In Florida City?
Generally, you have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit in Florida per Florida Statutes § 95.11. We say “generally” because the actual statute of limitations can differ on a case-by-case basis.
Some personal injury case deadlines are dated from the time the injury was discovered. This can happen in medical malpractice especially. For instance, if a doctor failed to diagnose or left a surgical instrument in your body after a procedure, you may not realize it until months or even years later.
You might also have unique circumstances. Suffering a hit-and-run could mean you don’t know who to sue, so we might work to toll the deadline until they’re identified. Slipping and falling on government property or getting hit by a city bus could mean filing against a municipality, which requires written notification of a claim within six months. Whatever the circumstances, check with us first to ensure we can act within the correct time frame.
