Establishing Fault in Your Apalachicola Personal Injury Case
Building a successful Apalachicola personal injury case requires proving four factors. Our team will gather evidence and may work with expert witnesses to show who should be held liable for your Apalachicola accident.
The four steps in establishing fault include:
- The at-fault party had a duty of care to create a reasonably safe environment: For example, a driver has the responsibility to avoid creating hazardous conditions for other drivers or pedestrians.
- The at-fault party breached that duty of care: For example, if the other driver was drunk or speeding, they breached their duty of care.
- That breach caused an accident: If a driver was speeding but did not cause an accident, then they cannot be held liable.
- The accident resulted in damages: Similar to the above factor, if there are no damages, then there can be no claim of compensation. We must prove how the accident impacted your life.
Our team understands how Florida personal injury laws work and is ready to fight on your behalf. We will determine who is to blame and work to recover the compensation you deserve.
Damages You May Be Eligible for in Your Apalachicola Personal Injury Case
The damages you may recover in your Apalachicola personal injury case depend on the details of your specific situation. As such, we are unable to provide an estimate of the damages you might recover without reviewing your case.
However, the most common types of damages we recover for Apalachicola victims include:
In most personal injury cases, we are able to recover all medical bills associated with the accident in question. For example, you may recover the cost of hospitalization, surgery, testing, and medication. If your injuries are severe, we may also recover the cost of future medical care, medical devices, and rehabilitation.
Personal Property Damage
We may also pursue the cost to repair or replace any personal property that was damaged or destroyed in your Apalachicola accident. For example, your vehicle, home, or electronic devices on your person at the time the incident occurred.
Lost Wages or Salary
In addition to facing medical bills, you may also miss days at work due to your injuries or to attend doctor’s appointments. We will pursue compensation for the salary or wages you lost when you were unable to work.
If your injuries make it impossible to work for an extended period, we may seek lost future wages as well.
Pain and Suffering Damages
You incurred financial costs due to another person’s reckless behavior, however, you were also forced to endure physical and emotional pain. We will fight to recover compensation to cover the pain and emotional distress you suffered.
