Suffering an injury can turn your life upside down in an instant, leaving you grappling with loss of independence, the ability to work, and a sense of injustice when someone else is at fault. Fortunately, the civil tort system in Florida provides a path to seek justice through a personal injury claim. This legal avenue aims to compensate you for the physical, financial, and emotional tolls incurred since your accident.

However, obtaining the compensation you need is often far from easy. The responsible party or their insurance company may resist acknowledging fault or offering fair compensation. This is where an experienced personal injury attorney can make a meaningful difference.

What is considered a personal injury?

Personal injury encompasses a range of physical or psychological damages suffered by an individual due to another’s negligence, recklessness, or deliberate actions. Mr. Shomo has extensive experience in a variety of Florida personal injury cases, including:

  • Wrongful Death: This occurs when an individual’s death results from someone else’s negligent or intentional actions. Families of the deceased can pursue compensation for their loss, covering aspects like funeral expenses, lost future income, and loss of companionship.
  • Premises Liability: Property owners in Florida are responsible for maintaining a safe environment. When they fail to address hazards, resulting in visitor injuries, they can be held liable. This category includes a wide range of incidents that lead to injuries and fatalities caused by unsafe conditions. Victims are entitled to seek compensation for their injuries, medical bills, and other related expenses.
  • Workplace Accidents: Injuries that occur in the workplace due to inadequate safety measures, faulty equipment, or negligence fall under this category. Mr. Shomo helps injured workers find their way forward.
  • Drowning Accidents: Incidents leading to drowning or near-drowning due to inadequate safety protocols, lack of supervision, or faulty equipment in swimming pools, water parks, or open water settings. Compensation can be sought for medical treatment, rehabilitation costs, and in tragic cases, wrongful death.
  • Boating Accidents: These accidents involve personal watercraft, boats, and ships, often due to operator negligence, intoxication, or equipment failure. Victims can pursue damages for their injuries, property damage, and other losses incurred on the water.
  • Golf Cart Accidents: Injuries resulting from golf cart mishaps, whether on the course or in communities where they’re used as transportation, due to reckless driving, mechanical failures, or poor maintenance. Compensation can cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

Each of these personal injury cases requires a detailed understanding of the law and a strategic approach to secure the compensation the injured party deserves. Mr. Shomo is dedicated to providing caring and compassionate legal representation to navigate the complexities of these claims effectively.

Common injuries in personal injury claims

Assessing the extent and impact of your injuries is crucial when it comes to determining the value of your claim. Different injuries can have varying effects on your financial situation and overall quality of life. Regardless of the severity, any injury can potentially lead to a settlement. Common injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries: Brain trauma is serious and can lead to permanent brain damage. Head injuries can affect your cognitive functioning, memory, coordination, personality, and mood. If you’ve sustained a permanent brain injury, you deserve justice.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Injuries to the spine are especially serious, and some can be so severe that they lead to irreversible damage like paralysis. Spinal injuries can change your life, creating mobility issues, an inability to work, and a need for caregiving assistance.
  • Broken bones and fractures: Some broken bones aren’t considered truly serious injuries, such as if they will fully heal with the injured no worse for wear afterward. Unfortunately, some broken bone injuries can be quite serious. If your broken bone was a compound fracture or simply didn’t heal properly, this type of injury can affect you for life.
  • Burn injuries: Serious burn injuries can cause you to suffer great pain, permanent injuries, and even lose mobility due to muscle and nerve damage. In some cases, a burn injury can lead to wrongful death. You can often file an injury claim for a serious burn injury.
  • Amputations: The loss of a limb is an extremely traumatic injury, both physically and emotionally. This kind of injury can limit your mobility and your ability to provide for your family. You should be compensated for an injury as serious as a limb amputation caused by another’s negligence.

Can I file a personal injury lawsuit?

Determining your eligibility for a personal injury lawsuit depends on factors like the nature of your injury and local laws. Yet, simply being able to sue doesn’t guarantee it’s the best course of action. Before proceeding, it’s crucial to evaluate your case’s strength, potential damages, and chances of success. Given the complexity of legal procedures, seeking guidance from a skilled personal injury attorney is vital.

Consulting with a reputable attorney can help you navigate the process effectively. They will assess your case, explain legal options, and advocate for your rights. Additionally, they will aid in evidence gathering, insurance negotiations, and courtroom representation if necessary. Getting legal advice safeguards your rights and enhances the likelihood of a favorable outcome.

How much is my personal injury case worth?

Figuring out how much your personal injury claim is worth is not easy because each case is different. The value of your claim depends on how bad your injuries are, how much your medical care costs, and how much money you’ve lost from not being able to work. A good personal injury lawyer can look at all these factors to give you an idea of what your claim might be worth.

Talking to a lawyer early on is important. They can use their experience to estimate how much your claim could be worth. This helps you understand your options and go after fair compensation for what you’ve been through. So, it’s smart to talk to a lawyer quickly to make sure your rights are protected, and you get the most money possible for your personal injury claim.

What damages can I claim?

After sustaining a personal injury, you may be entitled to various types of damages to compensate for the harm and losses you have experienced. These damages can include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Present and future lost wages
  • Pain and suffering

Deadline for filing a personal injury lawsuit

In Florida, you have a two-year deadline, known as the statute of limitations, to file a personal injury claim. The clock starts running on the date of the injury. Missing this deadline can result in forfeiting your right to seek compensation. Exceptions are rare, so it is crucial to consult with a personal injury attorney promptly to initiate legal action within the required timeframe. Acting swiftly ensures compliance with the statute of limitations and maximizes your chance of obtaining fair compensation for your injuries and losses.
