What are elements of negligence in a personal injury claim?

In order to obtain financial compensation for a personal injury claim in Florida, you often need to prove that negligence occurred. Negligence is a legal term that essentially means your injury was caused by someone else’s actions or inaction. In order to file a successful personal injury claim in Florida, injury victims must prove that negligence occurred.

The elements of negligence in a personal injury claim often involve the following situations:

  • The person or business that caused your injury had a legal responsibility to make sure that no injury occurred, often on their property. This is legally known as a “duty of care.”
  • The at-fault party knew about a dangerous situation or reasonably should have known about the hazardous situation.
  • The at-fault party failed to take steps to prevent your injury or address a hazardous situation.
  • You experienced a financial loss as a result of your injury.

Is it worth hiring a personal injury attorney?

If you or someone you love has been injured because of someone else’s negligence, it’s important to understand your potential legal options. You may be entitled to a significant financial recovery, and research shows that an attorney can help you get more compensation compared to handling the claim on your own. You should at least consider talking to a personal injury lawyer if:

  • You were badly injured due to the negligence of others.
  • You suffered a debilitating or permanent injury in an accident.
  • You need help investigating your accident and figuring out who’s at fault.
  • You aren’t sure if the insurance company’s settlement offer is fair.
  • You’re having a hard time with the insurance company (e.g., they are challenging/denying your claim).
  • You’re the family member of someone who was killed in an accident due to negligence.

In Florida, you typically have two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit. But other deadlines can apply in some circumstances, so it’s in your best interest to call a lawyer as soon as possible.

Most personal injury attorneys represent clients on a contingency fee basis, meaning you don’t have to pay anything upfront and only get charged fees if there’s a financial recovery.

It’s common to have questions after an accident. How much is my personal injury claim worth? How long does the claims process take? Do I have a case? At Armando Personal Injury Law, we offer all potential clients a free consultation. We can answer any questions you have and go over your legal options.
