Miami Personal Injury Lawyer Helping You to Maximize Your Compensation
Personal injuries can be devastating victims and their families, not only physically and emotionally, but also financially because of the medical costs involved and the potential loss of income. But if you suffered a personal injury due to another party’s negligence, you have protections under Florida personal injury law.
You can claim financial damages from the negligent party’s insurance company by negotiating a settlement or by filing a personal injury lawsuit. However, insurance companies are determined to minimize their loss and are going to use every tactic to deny or reduce your claim.
HOW TO PROVE YOUR PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM IN FLORIDA?
Under Florida personal injury law, to claim compensation as a victim, you will have to establish that the negligent party did not exercise reasonable care, which led to your injuries and losses. The three elements of negligence that you must prove include:
Defendant had a Duty of Care
The defendant (at-fault party) had a duty to exercise a reasonable duty of care, which means, it was their legal obligation to not injure the other party or put them in harm’s way.
Defendant Breached that Duty
Once you prove that the defendant had a duty of care, the second part is to prove that he or she breached that duty, or did not live up to it.
The Breach of Duty Caused Your Injuries
Once it is established that the defendant breached their duty of care, the final part is to prove that this act of breach resulted in your accident and injuries or contributed to them.
In other words, in a personal injury case in Florida, the burden of proof lies on you (the victim) to prove your case. Therefore, you need our experienced personal injury attorneys in Miami by your side to collect the necessary evidence and present an irrefutable case in order to obtain maximum damages from the negligent party and their insurer.
WHAT IS THE WORTH OF MY MIAMI PERSONAL INJURY CASE?
During your initial consultation with us, our personal injury lawyers at Piotrowski Law in Miami will provide you with a free case review to estimate the potential value of your case. We will evaluate the facts and circumstances surrounding your accident, the extent of your physical injuries, pain and suffering, and your present and future income loss.
While you can obtain compensation equivalent to your actual present and future medical bills and loss of income, there is no limit to the damages you can claim for non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering and loss of consortium. At Piotrowski Law, we will aim to pursue maximum possible compensation to protect your financial rights in a personal injury case.
STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS
We recommend that you should contact us as soon as possible after you or someone you love has suffered a personal injury due to another’s fault. Under the statute of limitations in Florida for personal injury cases, you are required to file your lawsuit for damages within four years from the date of your injury.
Your goal should be to pursue a claim with the insurance company without losing any time. This gives them an indication that you are serious about achieving the best settlement, and more importantly, it gives us the opportunity to collect maximum evidence in your favor when the accident is recent. The earlier you pursue, the faster you can obtain compensation and restart your life.
