Who Can File a Personal Injury Claim in Florida?

Florida personal injury laws allow anyone who was injured and/or suffered damages due to another person or party’s negligent or wrongful conduct to bring a personal injury claim. As the plaintiff, you will have the burden of proof. This means that you are the one responsible for proving your case.

To successfully prove your personal injury case, our attorneys will work to establish the following:

  • Another person or party owed you a duty of care
  • The other person or party breached the duty of care
  • You were injured and suffered damages
  • Your injuries and damages were caused by the breach of the duty of care

For example, if you were hit by a distracted driver and suffered a serious injury, we can work to show that the distracted driver is liable for your resulting damages. Because all motorists owe others a duty of care, meaning they must take reasonable actions to avoid an accident, the duty of care in such a case is typically implied. Distracted driving is a form of negligence and, in some cases, may even be unlawful. By proving the driver was distracted at the time of the accident, our Gainesville personal injury lawyers can prove that he or she breached the duty of care he or she owed to you.

What Compensation Can Be Recovered in a Personal Injury Claim?

The purpose of filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit is to recover compensation for damages you sustained due to the other person or party’s negligent or wrongful conduct. Depending on the specifics of your situation, you may have experienced economic and/or non-economic losses due to the accident/incident. All damages resulting from the incident can potentially be recovered.

Examples of common damages for which personal injury clients are compensated include:

  • Medical expenses, including future projected costs
  • Lost income/wages, including future lost earnings
  • Lost earning ability due to disability
  • Pain and suffering, including emotional distress

In some cases, it may be possible to recover punitive damages. Unlike the compensatory damages listed above, the purpose of punitive damages is not to compensate the victim for specific losses but, rather, to punish the defendant for egregious negligence. Punitive damages are rare and are only available when one can prove that the other person or party acted with wanton disregard for the safety/lives of others.
