Do I have a Personal Injury Case?
You have a personal injury case if the actions of another individual operating an automobile, truck, motorcycle, or other motor vehicles were careless. Careless is simply another word for negligent, which is defined as failing to do what a reasonable person would do, given a certain set of circumstances. For example, if an individual failed to stop his vehicle at a red light, as a normal person would, he could be considered negligent and responsible for damages. These can include personal injuries caused by his actions for any pain and suffering, permanent injuries, disabilities, or even death.
In order for damages to be sought, an injury need not be physical. Such cases that involve being subjected to extreme emotional distress or verbal abuse may also entitle you to damages. In the case of a death within a family, surviving family members can recover damages through wrongful death laws & and litigation. Although many personal injury cases only involve minor injuries, you may still be entitled to substantial monetary damages. Medical expenses, no matter how small they are, including hospital expenses, medications, and physical therapy can be recovered. In addition, in cases of extreme negligence, punitive damages can be recovered to ensure that the conduct is not repeated in the future.
Every automobile accident in Florida is different. Every set of damages, injuries, and losses is unique. While most automobile accidents in Florida are caused unintentionally by a momentary lack of attention, such as the use of a cell phone, music device, or other unsafe driving habit, some accidents are caused by behavior such as high speed reckless driving, or driving under the influence (DUI). These reckless acts are not only negligent, but also criminal.
