An injury of any kind can turn a person’s entire world upside down, and have their loved ones scrambling to hold things together. Injuries can lead to the loss of a job or income, skyrocketing medical bills that send families into debt, and seemingly endless stress and trauma. From car accidents to slip and falls, injuries are never a positive experience.
Not all injuries are truly “accidents.” Negligent property owners, poor drivers, or lazy or improperly trained staff members cause people to get hurt all the time.
When injuries happen due to the negligence of another person or entity, it is possible to hold the responsible parties accountable for their actions and receive compensation for the damages that you have had to suffer. Florida allows victims of negligence to demand compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit.
In order to win a personal injury lawsuit, plaintiffs have to prove that the defendant was negligent in some form, and the defendant’s negligence lead to the plaintiff’s injuries and financial damages.
Each personal injury case is different. For example, an auto accident lawsuit may look different than a medical malpractice case. In some of these situations, the defendant may be able to argue to the judge that you, the plaintiff, were negligent at some point during your accident. Due to Florida’s comparative negligence laws, if this happens, you may still win your case, but the amount of compensation that you ask for will be reduced.
