Representing Clients For All Types Of Injuries:
Do You Have The Right To Compensation?
Under Florida law, those involved in an accident can seek financial compensation through a personal injury lawsuit if they can show that their injuries were caused as a direct result of someone else's negligence or reckless actions.
Negligence or recklessness can include a wide range of different things depending on the circumstance and the type of accident. In general, you have to prove that any reasonable person would recognize the actions in question to have been reckless or negligent. Some examples of actions that often qualify for this include:
- Drunk driving
- Texting while driving
- Other types of distracted driving
- Failure to yield right of way
- Disobeying traffic laws
- Failing to maintain a safe vehicle
- Failing to maintain a safe property for visitors or employees
- And more
Each type of Fort Myers personal injury case is different, but our attorneys have experience in each of them. We can review your case and see if fault lies with the other party. If it does, we fight to make sure that your rights are represented and to get you the settlement you need to recover.
Why Seek Compensation?
When you're injured, it can leave your finances in terrible shape. While you should be focused on your physical recovery, the numerous costs can quickly become a burden that you can't ignore. Instead of healing physically, many accident victims are left focusing on trying to pay their bills and avoid financial ruin.
But if your accident was caused by someone else, you shouldn't be left shouldering that burden on your own. The person responsible for your accident should be held accountable. Seeking financial compensation lets you focus on your health and takes care of your medical costs for you.
A settlement can cover numerous types of damages, too, including:
- Lost wages
- Future potential lost wages
- Medical bills
- Future medical bills
- Property repair
- Compensation for pain and suffering
In some instances, a court may award punitive damages as well. These are awarded as a way to punish those who truly behaved in a reckless or negligent manner and to help dissuade others from acting in the same way. Your attorney will review your case and determine what a fair settlement is. But no matter what the ultimate sum, you can rest assured that our legal team will fight to get you the most.
The Big Challenges Of A Personal Injury Lawsuit
Fort Myers is made up of a diverse population, but when you're injured in an accident, it can essentially pit you against someone else. Making things worse, those injured are often left trying to get compensation not from a person, but a legal team or an insurance company.
These high-powered organizations often use tactics like:
- Forcing you to fill out needless forms
- Ignoring your attempts to contact them
- Refusing to pay
- Making settlement offers far lower than what you're owed.
They do this knowing that you're injured, frustrated, and struggling. Add this to the fact that the legal system is incredibly complex, and it becomes clear that letting our lawyers take the fight to them and get you what you deserve is important.
