If you or a loved one have been injured in an accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. The first step to recovery is a free consultation with a Hialeah personal injury lawyer. Call personal injury attorney Mike Redondo at Redondo Law, P.A. today to find out if you have a case.
Do I Have a Valid Personal Injury Claim?
If you were injured in an accident, you may have a valid personal injury claim if you can show that the other party acted negligently, that you suffered an injury, and that your injury was a direct result of the other party’s negligence. Negligence means that another person failed to act in a way that they were supposed to, even if accidental.
Your attorney will review all of the evidence, contact witnesses, and fight on your behalf to prove negligence and causation for your personal injury claim to be valid.
Who Can File a Personal Injury Claim?
If you were injured in an accident, you can likely file a personal injury claim against the party or parties who were responsible for the accident. If a loved one has died as a result of an accident, you may be able to bring a wrongful death suit. An experienced personal injury attorney can guide you on the appropriate steps to take if you are considering filing either a personal injury claim or a wrongful death suit.
In Florida, even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you may still be able to recover damages from the party responsible for the accident. For example, if the other party was 75% to blame for the accident and you were 25% to blame, you may still be able to recover damages for 75% of the amount you requested in your personal injury claim.
When Do You Have to File a Lawsuit?
The time period after an accident within which you must file your personal injury claim is called the statute of limitations. In Florida, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is generally four years from the date of the accident, although in certain cases it is limited to just two years and can sometimes be extended to five years. It is important to speak with a Hialeah personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident because if you miss the filing deadline, you will not be able to recover any damages.
