When Can You Seek Restitution?
Under Florida law, victims of an accident can seek financial compensation when their injuries are a direct result of a negligent or reckless action of another person or organization. Here are some examples of a reckless or negligent action:
- A property owner who knows about a safety hazard but willingly does nothing to correct it or warn visitors about it.
- A driver who is drunk and causes an accident that injuries others.
- A driver who texts while driving and causes the accident.
In short, if you can show that the other person acted in a way that any reasonable person would recognize to be reckless or negligent, you likely have a legal case and can pursue compensation. Our St Petersburg personal injury attorneys will handle the entire process so you can focus on physical recovery. You don't need to do a thing unless a signature is needed, and we'll fight hard to get you what you're owed.
Why Seek Compensation?
There's no question that S. Petersburg offers plenty to love - with great job opportunities and plenty of nightlife. But it's also the fifth most populated city in the state, and more than 250,000 people live here. And since it practically blends into Tampa and Clearwater, there are huge numbers of people on the roads, sidewalks, and properties of St. Petersburg every day.
That high population means that accidents happen here on a daily basis. And whether it's in a slip and fall on someone's property, on the roadways, or even in the waterways of the city, those accidents can lead to major financial burdens.
If your accident was caused by the actions of another, you shouldn't have to shoulder the financial burden on your own. Medical bills, lost wages from missing work, and other expenses can quickly pile up. Seeking compensation lets you avoid the financial stress that an accident can bring.
What Will Compensation Include?
Every personal injury lawsuit is different, but there are several different types of damages that your attorney will focus on working towards. These include the following.
Not only the medical costs you have already incurred, but also the estimated costs you may have to pay in the future related to your injuries.
A settlement that is fair should cover the time you missed from work and the wages lost, but also needs to include the future estimated costs you'll miss over the coming years as a result of your injuries.
Pain and Suffering
Sometimes, accident victims are compensated for the physical or emotional pain they suffer due to the actions of another.
Rarer than the points above, punitive damages are awarded at times as a way to punish the person or organization that caused the accident. They're a way of punishing the responsible party and of dissuading others from acting in a similar manner.
