You Only Have a Limited Window to File Your Personal Injury Lawsuit in Florida
If you wish to file a claim for compensation in a personal injury lawsuit in Florida, you generally have four years from the date the accident occurred to file your claim. You must file your lawsuit within this deadline, or the court may dismiss your case or refuse to hear it. In some cases, the deadline can be extended.
Four years may seem like a long time, but the sooner you begin the process, the easier it will be for your Sanford lawyer to collect the evidence they will need to build a strong case that supports your claim for compensation. Witnesses move away, reports become harder to locate, security camera footage gets recorded over, and memories fade over time. Do not let these complications affect your case by waiting until the last minute to file your personal injury lawsuit in Florida.
What the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine Can Do for You
After filing your claim and presenting the relevant evidence in your case, we will negotiate with the parties involved in your lawsuit to obtain the fairest compensation possible. If your claim is successfully resolved pre-trial, as most personal injury law cases are, there will be no necessity to go to court.
To prove negligence in personal injury cases, you must prove:
- The other party had a duty to keep you safe. For example, drivers automatically assume a duty of care toward others while they are behind the wheel; property owners have a duty of care toward their guests and customers; and healthcare providers have a duty of care toward their patients.
- The other party failed to uphold their duty, such as by driving recklessly or failing to post appropriate signage near unsafe conditions. The exact form of negligence will depend upon the nature of your personal injury case.
- The negligent party’s breach of duty caused your injuries.
- You suffered financial damages as a result of the accident.
When You Meet With Your Attorney
When you meet with a personal injury attorney, he or she will:
- Interview you to get your perspective on how the accident occurred.
- Review evidence you may have brought with you.
- Gather additional evidence that may strengthen your case, such as the testimony of expert witnesses, police reports, and medical records.
- Handle communications between all parties, keeping you informed without overwhelming you with correspondence.
- Attempt to negotiate a fair settlement that compensates you for your damages.
- Take your case to court if an equitable settlement cannot be reached.
