Palm Springs Personal Injury Lawyer
When you’ve been injured, you need all the help you can get as you seek compensation. Call a lawyer who can give you all the help you need.
A serious injury can have long-term, dire effects on your life. This is especially true if you were not at fault for your accident; when another person has caused you serious harm, you may feel that justice has not been served.
If another person has seriously injured you, you may be entitled to damages, even if your insurance company doesn’t want to pay. In cases like these, a Palm Springs personal injury lawyer from the Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo can help you get the compensation you need to get your life back.
Types of Claims We Handle
We handle a variety of injury cases in the Palm Springs area. Below are some of the case types we most commonly deal with:
- Car, motorcycle, truck, and other vehicle accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Premises liability, such as slip-and-fall and dog bite cases
- Nursing home abuse
What to Consider for Your Claim
When preparing your claim, it is important to keep in mind that state laws can make or break your case. For example, the Florida statute of limitations for claims is four years. However, if you plan to file for compensation related to medical malpractice, you may have less time to file. The statute for medical malpractice is only two years from the date of discovery under most circumstances.
If you were injured in a car accident, keep in mind that Florida is a no-fault insurance state. This means that, if you are injured in an accident, fault does not matter. You will still be entitled to compensation for your damages. In cases involving negligence, though, Florida observes comparative negligence. In these cases, if you are found to hold any fault, your settlement may be devalued for your part of the blame.
Navigating laws like these can be difficult, and if you don’t handle your claim properly, you could even lose your chance to receive compensation. Fortunately, with the help of a Palm Springs injury attorney, you have someone on your side to guide you through this complex process.
Winning Compensation for Your Damages
Once you have built your claim, it’s important to know what damages you’re owed. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you could see compensation for both economic and non-economic damages.
Below are a few examples of the damages you may have suffered and the compensation you could be owed:
- Physical Injury – If you suffered any sort of injury, you may be compensated for the medical expenses you have incurred, including future expenses.
- Mental Anguish – Mental or emotional distress can leave a lasting impression, and it can have a serious negative impact on your life.
- Lost Wages – If you were temporarily or permanently disabled and have been unable to work, you are likely entitled to compensation for your lost income.
Other damages include property damage, reduced quality of life, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium. A lawyer can help you assign a value to every damage you’ve suffered.
