As you go about your day, the last thing you expect to happen is to be involved in an accident. You certainly don't expect to get hurt while driving to work or running errands. In some cases, you walk away from an accident feeling just fine. Yet, the gravity of an injury and its impact on a victim's life may not always be immediately evident. Your injuries may be more extensive than what doctors initially thought. Or recovery time could extend longer than you expect. The damage inflicted could be permanent and affect you for the rest of your life.

But when a severe accident happens to your family, you may wonder what to do. The insurance company could offer you a settlement - but should you take it? Yet how can you get by when medical bills pile up or you have no money coming in because you can't work? The mental and emotional toll an accident can have on your family may become too much to bear; what can you do?

If you attempt to settle alone, you run the risk of not receiving enough compensation to pay your medical bills. Worse, you could be leaving money on the table if you don't know what legal rights to compensation you have. Depending on how severe the damage is, you might be compensated for lost wages or the pain and suffering you've endured.

Cutler Bay Personal Injury Lawsuit

A personal injury occurs when a person suffers a physical injury due to someone else's careless, negligent, or wrongful act. These injuries may result from a slip on a wet floor, or a car crash caused by a distracted driver. The damage must occur to a person's body, not their property.

Florida's personal injury laws hold the person(s) who caused the injury accountable for the damage. The injured person must prove the other party was negligent. To do so, your case must demonstrate that the party who caused the injury failed to act in a way that a reasonably careful person would have.

A personal injury lawsuit may be settled by negotiation or in court.

How Much Can I Expect to Receive for My Injuries?

You may wonder how much you could be compensated for the damage you've suffered. The monetary damages you may be entitled to depends mainly on the circumstances and severity of your injuries.

Yet even if you've been seriously hurt in a Cutler Bay accident, your injuries aren't enough to be awarded compensation. You must also prove that your injuries resulted from someone else's negligence.

Seeking legal help as quickly as possible after an accident may play a pivotal role in your potential claim. Not only does this help you decide whether to pursue a case, but you can also get a general idea of what kind of compensation you can expect.

To help assess the merits of your case, our Cutler Bay personal injury lawyers consider such factors as:

  • Who are the parties involved in the accident? Which party is to blame for the accident?
  • Were there other factors that contributed to the accident?
  • How extensive are injuries.
  • How much medical care do you need for recovery?
  • What impact does the cost of the treatment have on your finances?
  • Are you able to work?
  • Are your injuries extensive enough where your ability to earn a living in the future is affected?
  • Will the quality of your life be impacted by your injuries?

If you can show your injuries resulted from someone else's reckless or negligent behavior, and you sustained economic damages as a result, it may be possible to recover compensation for:

  • Medical care, surgery, diagnostic tests, hospital stays, and doctor visits.
  • Lost wages during your recovery
  • Loss of future earning potential

Depending on the severity and impact of the injuries, you could be compensated for non-economic damages. This type of compensation covers damages associated with emotional, physical, and mental suffering.

When you are badly hurt in an accident, seeking legal help can be crucial if you need to seek compensation. At Wolfson & Leon, our Cutler Bay accident attorneys review the specifics of your case and can advise you of potential legal courses of action that may be available to recover damages.

Is There a Deadline for Filing a Personal Injury Claims in Florida?

The State of Florida places a time limit on filing a personal injury lawsuit – generally two years. These deadlines may vary based on the laws under which your accident falls. If you are badly hurt and are seeking compensation to pay for your medical care, missed paychecks, or other related costs, knowing what the deadlines may be critical to being awarded damages. Building a case can take considerable time, so if you wait too long, you could miss the deadline.

Pay No Attorney’s Fees Unless We Settle
