Do I Need an Attorney After the Accident?
Although you may understand that you could receive compensation for your injuries after you were injured in an accident someone else caused, you also need to know some basic information about personal injury claims. Everyone who files an insurance claim with the at-fault party’s insurance company or takes a lawsuit to court seeking compensation for injuries and losses must prove that the other party caused the incident or accident that injured them.
Once it’s proven that the other party’s actions or negligence caused the accident, then you’ll have to show that the accident caused your injuries. Next, you’ll have to show that your injuries caused you to have verifiable losses. Once you’ve done that, you might be eligible for compensation.
You can rely on The Bruner Law Firm to carefully and respectfully explain everything you need to know so that you have the information you need to make knowledgeable decisions regarding your goals and expectations. You can rely on us for solid, trustworthy legal counsel and advice at all turns, and we will never sugar-coat our explanation or make statements to purposely mislead you.
How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit?
Generally, Florida’s statute of limitations allows those injured through the negligence of others four years to file a lawsuit to pursue compensation in court. There are some exceptions to this time period, so it’s best to consult an experienced personal injury attorney to be sure of the time limit in your case. If you fail to file your lawsuit within the statutory period, your case could be dismissed, and you would lose the opportunity to have your case heard by the court.
What Compensation Could I Get?
If you were injured through no fault of your own, you might be eligible to pursue compensation for economic losses and non-economic losses related to the accident.
Economic losses are those for which you will usually have some paper documentation, such as a receipt, an invoice, or some other document containing a price for services. These types of losses include:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Lost future wages
- Property damage
Non-economic losses include intangible losses that are more difficult to quantify. Losses of this type include:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Anxiety, PTSD, or other mental disorders resulting from the accident
Your skilled personal injury lawyer from The Bruner Law Firm can assess your situation, your injuries, your other losses, and the duration of your recovery, among other things, to arrive at an appropriate amount of compensation for your case. Contact us today.
