What Do I Need To Prove To Recover Damages for a Florida Personal Injury Case?

Many personal injury cases are based on claims of negligence. Negligence is failing to use reasonable care, and someone is injured as a result. The victim in a personal injury case has the burden of proving the following for a negligence claim:

  • The person the victim alleges caused the victim’s injuries owed the victim a legal duty of care
  • The person breached the duty of care through their actions or omissions in that they failed to meet a standard of care
  • The breach of duty was the proximate and direct cause of the victim’s injuries
  • The victim sustained injuries and incurred damages because the other person breached the duty of care

While negligence is a common reason for filing a personal injury claim, there are other causes of action. Intentional torts, vicarious liability, and strict liability are a few examples.

What Damages Are Available for a Personal Injury Claim in Florida?

The damages for a personal injury case in Florida include compensatory damages and punitive damages. Compensatory damages are the most common type of damages awarded in personal injury cases. Punitive damages are only awarded in a small number of personal injury lawsuits.

Economic Damages

Economic damages represent the monetary losses and expenses related to your accident and injury. They include:

The value of your economic damages is the actual amount of the expense or loss. Estimating future damages often requires the assistance of financial professionals, economists, medical specialists, and other experts.

Non-Economic Damages

Your non-economic damages compensate you for the pain and suffering you endured because of the accident and your injuries. These damages include:

  • Mental anguish, emotional distress, and physical discomfort
  • Loss of enjoyment of life and quality of life
  • Disfigurement and scarring
  • Permanent impairments and disabilities

It is more challenging to place a value on non-economic damages. They are subjective because each person’s recovery and experience are unique. Our Florida personal injury lawyers analyze the factors in your case to maximize your recovery for damages.

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages are only available in especially rare cases. A jury must find that the defendant’s (i.e., at-fault party) actions constituted gross negligence or intentional misconduct. 

If so, the jury can award punitive damages to “punish” the defendant for this conduct. The punitive damages award is paid to the plaintiff (i.e., the injured party).

How Much Is My Florida Personal Injury Case Worth?

Many factors determine the value of a personal injury case. Examples of the factors that could impact how much your case is worth include, but are not limited to:

  • The parties involved in the case
  • The types of injuries you sustained
  • The medical treatments you received
  • The length of your recovery
  • The availability and policy limits of insurance coverage
  • Whether you are partially to blame for causing your injuries
  • The strength of your evidence
  • Whether you sustained permanent impairments

Our Florida personal injury lawyers carefully analyze each factor to determine how it impacts your case. We’ll work to minimize negative factors and maximize the factors that increase the value of your injury claim.

Can I Recover Damages for a Personal Injury Claim if I Contributed to the Cause of the Accident?

Florida has a modified comparative negligence law. If a victim is more than 50% responsible for the cause of their injuries, they cannot receive damages for their claim.

You can recover some of your damages if you are less than 51% to blame for causing your injuries. The amount you receive is based on your level of fault. For instance, if you are 15% to blame for causing the car crash that resulted in your injuries, the most you can receive is 85% of your damages.

Our Florida personal injury lawyers are prepared for attacks based on contributory fault. We aggressively defend allegations of blame to protect your right to fair and just compensation for damages.

What Is the Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Cases in Florida?

Florida limits the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit through its statute of limitations. By default, you have two years from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit in court.

The above information is a general guideline. Some exceptions to these rules could change the filing date in your case. The facts of your case could also impact the deadline to file a lawsuit.

The best way to protect your right to pursue a legal claim is to seek prompt legal advice from an experienced Florida personal injury lawyer.

How Much Does It Cost To Hire a Florida Personal Injury Lawyer?

Hiring a personal injury lawyer gives you a better chance of obtaining a favorable outcome in your case. Your attorney understands personal injury laws and the process of pursuing an injury claim. However, you might worry about paying attorney’s fees when you are recovering from an accident.

Our Florida personal injury attorneys at Allen Law Accident & Injury Lawyers take cases for a contingency fee. We don’t charge you any upfront fees to hire our law firm. Instead, we agree to accept a percentage of the money we recover for your case as payment for our legal fees. 

With this framework, we don’t get paid, and you don’t owe attorney’s fees, unless and until we win your case.
