What is Personal Injury?
Personal Injury damages are physical and mental injuries to your person as a result an accident due to the negligence or carelessness of another person. The victim has a legal right to recover compensation for his or her damages- including medical bills, lost wages, and other losses- in an insurance claim, settlement or lawsuit. Making a claim or filing a lawsuit can be a difficult and complicated process. This is why we have lawyers to assist us in the misfortunes that we come across in life's path. A well-qualified and experienced personal injury attorney will help you recover the losses you suffered as a result of the injuries you suffered in the accident.
If the accident results in the unfortunate death of a victim, then the decedent’s survivors may have a “wrongful death” claim against the at-fault driver. Florida laws spell out who is a proper party to a wrongful death claim, and what damages may be available to such parties. You should contact an attorney who understands Florida’s wrongful death rules and regulation.
