Do you have a personal injury lawsuit on your hands? The only way to know for sure is to seek counsel from an experienced personal injury attorney.
Talking About Your Personal Injury Lawsuit
To determine if you have a personal injury lawsuit or not, you will need to talk to an experienced attorney. When you meet with an injury attorney, you will go over the specific details of your case. After, the attorney will determine whether you are likely to win a claim and what options are available to you.
Details Surrounding the Event of Your Injury
After being injured, it may be hard to recollect the exact events that occurred. But in order for the attorney to give you accurate advice, they will need to know what happened and who was involved, including witnesses. Was another driver on their phone when they hit you? Were there unclear walkways where you tripped and fell?
For any personal injury lawsuit to work out, you must be able to prove that your injury was the direct result of someone else’s careless, neglect, or failure to warn you of risks. For example, with premises liability, this statute explains that the cause of your injury would have to be foreseeable by the property owner. If you were not made aware of risks to your safety or someone acted recklessly and put you in danger, you most likely have a personal injury lawsuit.
What You Did After Being Injured
If you’re in an accident, the first thing you should do is receive medical attention. Even if the injury doesn’t seem as serious at first.
The injuries you sustain in an accident may not show symptoms of something grave until hours later. By waiting, you can miss the problem and make your condition worse. Also, waiting to see a doctor may be used against you in the lawsuit. For example, in a car accident, you are legally obligated to see a doctor no more than 2 weeks after the accident. You need to get checked out quickly or risk losing out on compensation. The defense can easily question whether your injuries were sustained in the accident or a completely unrelated incident.
How Long Has It Been Since the Accident?
Florida says you have four years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. If your claim is against the government, you only have three years.
