FIELDS LEGAL FIGHTS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN INJURED
Accidents happen throughout the day and during our lifetime. Personal injury accidents are not simply accidents when they are caused by the negligence of an individual and/or business. These personal injury accidents can be minor but oftentimes they are catastrophic and life-changing. We also understand that the injuries you suffer not only affect you but also your loved ones.
Fortunately, Florida has laws that protect those who have been injured by the negligence of others, whether those injuries are minor or life-altering. It is important to reach out to the attorneys at Field Legal immediately after an accident so that we can start investigating your claim, contact all parties liable for your injuries, and begin fighting to recover the maximum compensation that you deserve. Our attorneys understand that every accident is different and needs individualized attention.
What Damages Can I Recover?
The types of damages that you can recover for a personal injury case will be determined by each individual case. There is no set amount or formula on how much a person can collect in damages for their injuries. We understand that due to the accident you may be out of work and medical bills are starting to pile up. Fields Legal lawyers are skilled in analyzing and investigating injury cases, and we will fight to maximize the damages that you can recover.
Some of the most common types of damages in Florida that you can recover are the following:
- Medical bills (both past and future)
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional pain and suffering
- Lost wages (both past and future)
- Mental anguish
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Loss of companionship, love, and support
- Punitive damages
In Florida, lawsuits for personal injury negligence must be filed within 4 years of the incident that caused the injury. For medical malpractice and wrongful death claims, the lawsuit must be filed within 2 years.
Grounds for making a personal injury claim include:
Negligence: The failure of a person or property owner to use reasonable care, which then causes damage or injury to another person or property. The law requires that all persons, corporations, or property owners should act as cautiously as an ordinary, sensible person would. This includes looking out for the safety of others.
Strict liability: There are instances in which there is no defense to a person or property owner’s actions. The person or property owner is responsible for all injuries or damages, regardless of the circumstances.
In addition to economic and pain and suffering damages, punitive damages can be recovered against a person or corporation for intentional injury to another person. Additionally, persons who drive drunk and injure or kill someone are always required to pay punitive damages.
In personal injury or wrongful death cases, we pay all of the expenses associated with making the claim or litigating for your rights. If there is no recovery, you don’t owe us a dime!
