Your Right To Compensation
Florida law allows those injured in an accident of any kind to seek out compensation for their injuries if they were involved in an accident that was caused by the reckless or negligent actions of someone else.
"Reckless or negligent" can mean a lot of different things, but in general you'll need to show that the other party's actions would be considered as such by a reasonable person. Some examples of this include:
- Drunk driving
- Texting while driving
- Disobeying traffic laws
- Failure to maintain a vehicle for safety
- Failure to properly maintain safety on a property
- And more
Depending on whether you're in a vehicle or involved in a slip and fall accident, you'll have different variables that your Venice personal injury lawyer will need to work towards. No matter the specifics, you'll have the support of our team as we get you what you deserve.
What Damages Can You Receive?
There are numerous damages that you may be owed in a settlement or personal injury lawsuit. Some of the different factors that could go into your settlement include the following:
- Medical costs
- Future potential medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Future potential lost wages
- Personal property replacement
- Pain and suffering compensation
- Punitive damages
All in all, the focus is on returning you to a situation that you would have been in if your accident had never occurred at all. Our attorneys work with different experts to determine what kind of a settlement offer is fair in your case, and then use that amount to get you justice.
The Difference An Attorney Makes
Insurance companies don't stay in business and make millions by paying out large settlements constantly. They'll often use their resources to try to prevent you from receiving anything more than they absolutely have to pay out.
By having our legal team on your side, however, you tell them that you mean business. Our reputation instantly gets you the respect of the other side, and from there we use our own resources to show that you deserve compensation and get you everything that you deserve. Some steps we take include the following.
Consulting with experts in the economic and medical fields to determine the true extent and cost of your injuries.
Gathering all evidence needed to show that the other person acted negligently. This can include everything from mobile phone records to security camera footage near the accident. We get it all, and use it for your case.
Negotiating for a fair settlement with the other side. Most insurance companies are much more likely to do this when you have an attorney on your side, and we work to get you what you deserve during the negotiation process.
If we can't negotiate a fair settlement, we'll go to court and fight there for your rights. Our team of attorneys has years of experience in trials, and we aren't afraid to fight to get you the compensation you need to make your recovery complete.
With an attorney on your side, you can focus on physically healing instead of worrying about your financial health. This is important for making a full recovery after an accident. We're here and ready to stand up to the bullies and fight for your rights. Contact our office to let us get started.
