FAQs About Personal Injury Claims in Florida

In our decades of law experience, we’ve answered all types of questions about personal injuries, victim rights, and insurance claims. We know what questions tend to be the most pressing to new clients and how much a straightforward and honest answer from an attorney can help. Our firm offers free initial consultations, so we can answer individual questions at zero cost and no obligation. In the meantime, here are several of the most frequently asked questions we receive in Fort Lauderdale, answered:

  • What type of accidents can lead to lawsuits? The basis of most personal injury claims is the legal theory of negligence. Negligence can describe any action or lack of action that breaches someone else’s duty to you, resulting in an injury. Anytime someone else’s negligence or carelessness results in injury to you or a loved one, you likely have grounds to sue. Common situations that lead to lawsuits include car crashes, slip and falls, workplace accidents, defective or dangerous products causing injury, medical malpractice, assault, and dog bites.

 

  • When can I sue for a car accident? Florida is a no-fault insurance state. This means that you must seek damage recovery through your own insurance company regardless of who was at fault for the collision. The law lets you pursue a claim for damages outside of the no-fault insurance system only if the accident is serious. By law, a serious accident is one that causes permanent injury, significant and permanent scarring/disfigurement, or permanent loss of a bodily function. These are generally the only types of injuries you can hold a driver liable for outside the insurance system.
  • How much can I get for my claim? There is no one answer to this question, as the amount you get for your claim will vary depending on the extent of your injuries, your accident-related expenses, and the degree of negligence of the other party. You could recover the costs of your past and future medical expenses, lost income from missing work, property damage, physical pain, and emotional suffering, lost the quality of life, and other damages. If a loved one died, you could also receive payment for funeral and burial expenses, as well as loss of consortium for the loss of the loved one’s company, care, and love.
  • How long do I have to file a claim? In Florida, the statute of limitations, or filing deadline, a personal injury claim is four years from the accident date. If you don’t discover your injuries until after the limitations deadline (for example, if an unsafe workplace exposes you to asbestos, but you don’t develop mesothelioma until 10 years after exposure), the clock doesn’t start ticking until the date of discovery. Missing your deadline can mean permanently losing your right to file a lawsuit.
