Personal Injury Case begins when someone suffers some form of injury physically or emotionally—as the result of another’s negligence or intentional conduct.
Basic personal injury cases stem from:
· Automobile accidents
· Work-related accidents
· Accidents due to unsafe premises (slip and fall or inadequate security), and
· Accidents caused by dangerous or defective products, which result in catastrophic injury or wrongful death
Under Florida law in a personal injury case an injured person can recover for medical and related expenses, lost wages and damages such as permanent disability or disfigurement; inconvenience; loss of family support and services; and the capacity to enjoy life, as well as emotional damages such as pain and suffering. Before you are entitled to reimbursement for such losses, your lawyer must prove that the defendant is liable, or is legally responsible for your injuries and damages.
