How Does Personal Injury Work in Florida?

To qualify for a personal injury suit in Florida, you must prove that:

  • Another person or entity was responsible for attempting to prevent your injury, but failed to do so;
  • Their failure played a direct role in the accident, and;
  • You suffered damages or injuries as a result of their negligence.

For example, let's look at a common personal injury case type: Slip and fall.

Let's say a person goes to a grocery store. As they walk down one of the aisles, they slip in a puddle and break their ankle. That person may be able to file a personal injury suit against the grocery store, but they may need to prove that:

  • Employees at the store knew about the puddle;
  • Despite knowing, they did nothing to warn guests of the danger (such as putting up a warning sign);
  • The lack of a warning sign or other safety measure was (at least partially) responsible for the injury.

It's also important to note that personal injury cases are not often an either-or situation. In many personal injury cases, the injured party is somewhat responsible.

Going back to our slip and fall case example, let's say the puddle was very obvious and the person walked through it because they were distracted by texting someone while listening to headphones. They may receive less compensation because their own negligence contributes to the injury and its severity.

What Can a Personal Injury Suit Get Me?

You can use a personal injury suit to gain compensation for:

  • Past, present, and future medical expenses;
  • Any wages you lose from work as a result of the injury;
  • Any property damage caused by the accident;
  • Any disfigurement or disability;
  • Other costs associated with your injury or the accident, such as hiring a caretaker, therapy appointments, etc.

Filing a personal injury case can help you maintain financial stability and improve your life after an accident.

What Kinds of Personal Injury Cases Does Four Rivers Law Firm Handle?

At Four Rivers Law Firm, we're proud to provide various personal injury services to our clients, including:

  • Slip and fall. Slip and fall injuries, in which a person falls or slips due to the negligence of another person or entity, are incredibly common, which is why we used it in an example earlier. We'll work with you to compile evidence for your case and push for full compensation for any damages caused to you.
  • Auto accident. Auto accident personal injury cases occur when a driver injures a pedestrian or other driver due to negligence. We'll help you understand unique aspects of auto accident personal injury cases, like how to work with your auto insurance, whether your case qualifies for punitive damages (helping you obtain greater compensation), and more.
  • Wrongful death. Wrongful death cases, wherein the negligence of an individual results in another person's death, are some of the more serious personal injury cases. If one of your loved ones suffers a wrongful death, we'll work with you to pursue justice and ensure you have the support you need throughout your case.

At Four Rivers Law Firm, we understand how daunting it can be to file a personal injury case and contend with your insurer. We'll take the burden of your case off your shoulders, so you can focus on healing up while we pursue a positive outcome for you.
