Types of Personal Injury Cases
Our team is prepared to take on a variety of personal injury claims. Injuries can happen under almost any circumstance, and we are prepared to protect your legal rights when negligence is involved. Some of the most common types of personal injury claims include:
- Car accidents. Motor vehicles are one of the primary causes of serious injury. These accidents also routinely result in personal injury claims when they occur due to another driver’s negligence. Negligence could involve any moving violation, including speeding or driving while intoxicated.
- Medical error. Medical mistakes can lead to some of the most severe personal injuries. Doctors can make different types of errors, including mistakes during surgery or failing to diagnose the appropriate illness.
- Falls. Slipping and falling is another of the most common causes of serious injuries. You could have a viable legal claim against the property owner where the fall occurred.
- Defective products. Some injuries occur when products malfunction. In these cases, it could be possible to hold the manufacturer accountable.
You could be entitled to recover a wide range of damages if your personal injury lawsuit is successful. Some common examples include:
- Medical bills. The cost of medical care following an accident is often the primary goal of a personal injury lawsuit. You could be entitled to recover compensation for the cost of an ambulance ride, hospitalization, emergency room visits, or other treatments.
- Pain and suffering. You could also recover an award for the severity of your physical pain and suffering. While this suffering is subjective, your damages could scale with the cost of your medical care.
- Lost wages. Many people suffering from serious injuries will be forced to miss work while they recover. This could lead to lost wages. It is possible to recover past and future lost wages through a personal injury lawsuit.
Deadlines for Filing a Lawsuit
While you have some time to pursue your claim, there could be steep consequences for putting it off for too long. If you wait until after the expiration of the statute of limitations to file your lawsuit, you will miss out on your chance to get the compensation you deserve.
The statute of limitations is a legal deadline that exists to prevent long delays in the legal system. These delays both tax the state’s resources and also potentially result in unfair trial results. For that reason, every state has adopted a deadline for filing a personal injury claim.
You Generally Have Four Years to Take Action
In North Port, the statute of limitations is governed by Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a). According to the statute, you must file your personal injury lawsuit within four years of the date the injury occurred. If you fail to do so, the other side will likely be successful in having your case dismissed forever. This could prevent you from recovering the compensation you deserve—even if the underlying facts in your case were in your favor.
There are some limited exceptions that could extend the statute of limitations in some cases, but it is never wise to assume they apply to you. Before you miss out on your chance to secure a monetary award for your injuries, let our team evaluate your case and ensure you comply with the statute of limitations.
Compensation You Could Recover
If you are living with an injury due to the negligence of someone else, you are entitled to pursue legal action against them. Often, the negligent party will have the support of insurance companies and attorneys on their side. The good news is that you are also entitled to hire the legal counsel of your choice.
