    Personal Injury Cases that Our Fort Pierce, FL Attorneys Commonly Handle

    Personal injury lawsuits are filed to recover damages for losses caused by another person’s negligence or intentional acts. These lawsuits can be filed against individuals, businesses, or government entities. Our personal injury lawyers can review your case to determine the party that should compensate you, even if it is not immediately clear who is at fault for the injury. While personal injury cases can vary widely, there are some common types of situations that people typically sue over in Fort Pierce:

    Car Accident Cases

    Dealing with accidents that involve only two vehicles is usually simple. However, when multiple vehicles are involved, things can become more intricate. If you sustained injuries in a multi-vehicle accident, there could be multiple parties responsible for your injuries. Cases can be more complicated when they involve commercial vehicles such as Uber and Lyft.

    Compensation recovery following a car accident in Fort Pierce can be complicated, and it is possible for some of the victim’s losses to remain uncovered. This is due to the no-fault insurance regulations followed by Florida. These regulations allow drivers to receive compensation for their accident injuries from their personal injury protection (PIP) insurance without having to establish fault. However, PIP insurance only covers a maximum of 60% of lost wages and 80% of medical expenses. Moreover, it does not provide compensation for non-economic losses such as physical pain and emotional distress.

    If you want to recover the remaining damages, you will need to either file a third-party claim with the other driver’s insurance company or file a lawsuit. In order to file a lawsuit for a car accident, you will have to prove that you sustained serious injuries in the accident. It can be difficult to determine whether an injury meets this threshold since there are broad categories of what constitutes a serious injury. Typically, serious injuries include loss of a body part or function, disfigurement, and wrongful death. However, if the court determines that your injuries aren’t that serious, your case will be dismissed, and you will not be able to recover any pain and suffering damages.

    Motorcycle Cases

    Fort Pierce sees a high number of personal injury cases caused by motorcycle accidents, which are known to be very dangerous. When a motorcycle is hit by another driver, the injuries sustained are often severe. Additionally, motorcyclists can also suffer injuries due to poor road conditions and construction, which are common in South Florida. It is worth noting that even if a motorcycle accident victim was not wearing a helmet, they are still entitled to pursue compensation. However, the amount of compensation they receive might be affected by how much not wearing a helmet contributed to their injuries.

    Premises Liability Cases

    When someone is injured on another’s property, it is common for the property owner, business owner, or homeowner to face premises liability lawsuits. These lawsuits can arise from slip and fall accidents, as well as other incidents such as dog bites or medical malpractice in hospitals. To prove negligence on the part of the owner, it is necessary to demonstrate that they did not fulfill their obligation to maintain a safe environment for visitors, which includes conducting regular inspections for potential hazards. Common settings for premises liability accidents include retail stores, bars, restaurants, and apartment complexes.

    Medical Malpractice Cases

    It is also possible to bring medical malpractice lawsuits against healthcare providers who cause harm while providing treatment or services to their patients. Medical malpractice can encompass a range of injuries, such as surgical errors, incorrect diagnoses, birth injuries, failure to diagnose, prescribing unsuitable medication, and neglecting to inform patients of the risks associated with their treatment plan before obtaining their consent.

    Ways That Our Fort Pierce Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help Your Case

    If you sustained injuries in an accident in Fort Pierce, you might be questioning whether you have a personal injury case or not. If you are unsure of the process for obtaining compensation for your injuries or require assistance in receiving compensation after an accident, our personal injury attorneys can help you obtain the compensation you deserve. Our team can assist you with the following steps to ensure your personal injury claim is off to a good start:

    Gather Evidence

    When you experience a personal injury in Fort Pierce, it is crucial to gather as much evidence as possible. Utilizing your phone, you can take photos and videos and also record the names and contact information of any witnesses present. Additionally, if there were any police officers on site, the details of your accident will be included in their report, which can be obtained from the investigating law enforcement agency. The more evidence you collect regarding your injuries, the greater the likelihood of a smooth compensation recovery process.

    Determine Fault

    If you have suffered injuries, we can assist you in identifying who is responsible. This is crucial in determining how much compensation you can receive from the individual or organization that caused your injuries. Personal injury cases are often complex, and assigning fault might not be immediately apparent. For example, if you were involved in a car accident caused by a commercial vehicle, you might have grounds to sue both the driver and their employer, despite the fact that the employer did not directly cause the accident.

    Negotiate with Insurance Companies

    We can also assist you in negotiating with the insurance company to secure just compensation in your case. Our team will guide you through the process and safeguard your entitlements. Knowing when to communicate with the insurance company and what to communicate is critical. Insurance companies often search for reasons to reject claims. However, collaborating with a lawyer can provide a notable edge, as most insurance companies will not want to face the risk of a lawsuit.

    Filing Your Lawsuit

    In the event that you need to take legal action against someone for damages, we can assist you with preparing and submitting your lawsuit. Our team will handle all the necessary paperwork and legal costs and ensure that your case is submitted to the appropriate court and properly served on the defendant.

    “…they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved.”

    I got in an accident in December 2021 when everyone was short staffed and insurance companies was not responsive. My boyfriend reached out to David F. and what a life changing experience. We had the pleasure of having all our worries handed to professional help. They worked diligently on our case, answered questions when asked and kept us updated on changes. More importantly they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved. I have dealt with others in the past but David got me the most according to the facts presented and never backed down when the insurance companies tried to make us settle for less. Thank you David, Jessica and the team for all your effort and hard work. I will recommend them to family and friends. [They’re] the best in town!

    Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know. He is really good at what he does and puts 110% in you case. I have been using him for 19 years now and refer all my friends to him.

There are not a lot of attorneys I can do that with! If you have any Personal Injuries please do call him. You won’t be disappointed!!
