Personal injury cases are often complex. When a person is injured in a personal injury accident or incident, many wheels go in motion. First, the negligent party may attempt to claim the accident was not their fault. Additionally, the insurance company may try to settle the case quickly to limit their payout amount. (When a case settles quickly, the full extent and lasting effects of the victim’s injuries are often not considered.) Furthermore, sometimes the insurance company attempts to limit the amount they may have to pay out as a settlement. For this reason, your personal injury lawyer must sometimes ensure that things don’t move so fast; so that the cart isn’t put before the horse.
Another key element for your lawyer is to gather and analyze all evidence pertinent to your case. This evidence includes witness statements, medical reports, medical bills, photos, video, and other relevant information. Personal injury cases often involve injuries that differ in severity, length of recovery time, physical therapy, medications, and medical treatment. They also vary as to whether the victim's injuries will impact their life temporarily, long-term, or permanently.
To effectively represent injury victims, the personal injury lawyer must examine every aspect of that case and act accordingly. This is regardless of how large or small an issue seems to be.
Personal Injury Compensation
Florida law allows victims to seek compensation when their injuries result from someone else’s negligence, carelessness, or intentional actions. In summary, depending on the circumstances, a personal injury victim may seek compensation and damages for:
- Injuries resulting from your accident or incident
- Lost wages due to time missed from work
- Inability to perform your work-related duties
- Medical bills directly related to your injuries, including:
- Medical treatment
- Physical therapy
- Prescription costs
- Medical equipment
- Long term or permanent treatment and care
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
- Long term or permanently diminished quality of life
- Compensation for the immediate family if the injury leads to death
