Florida Injury Attorney: What Types of Injuries Do They Handle?

Published at September 23, 2020 by administrator.

The cost of a personal injury is more than the physical injuries you acquire. According to the CDC, nonfatal injuries accounted for over $456 billion dollars a year of medical and work loss costs. A Florida injury attorney can help evaluate your case and get the money you deserve for your injury.

Fighting on your own against a business or individual can be extremely overwhelming. It can be even harder to wage a fight after you have been injured and are dealing with the physical and mental stresses that go along with that injury. A car accident, workplace accident, or any other injury could be cause for a legal case, and hiring a Florida injury attorney to help you should be your priority.

Why Should You Call an Injury Attorney?

There is not a limit on the specific types of injuries that your Florida injury attorney can help you with. If you or a loved one has been injured, it is best to consult an attorney and see if they can help you with your case.

An injury attorney knows the legal system and how to work within the rules. When you have your own attorney, they will work for you and champion your cases. Right after an accident, it is important to seek medical care, but as soon as you or your loved one are stable, hiring an attorney will be your best option.

Some common injury cases include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Home or business premise liability injuries
  • Product injury liability
  • Medical malpractice injury
  • Wrongful death

If you have been injured and believe someone, or a business, may be at fault, it is essential to consult with an attorney. The sooner you are in contact with an attorney, the more they can help build your case.

Your injury attorney is there to work as your team member. They serve you and specialize in recovering financial compensation after your accident or injury. The money your attorney can get for you can be used to get specialized treatments if needed, support you when wages are lost, and pay back medical bills. Your attorney will also work to get additional money for any pain and suffering that has occurred physically or mentally because of the injury.

An injury case typically proceeds through several steps before you get to trial. Your Florida injury attorney will work on all these steps for you:

  • Investigating the case
  • Finding evidence to support your case
  • Negotiating with other parties involved in the case
  • Preparing legal pleadings
  • Representing you during the trail

How an Injury Case is Processed in Florida

The State of Florida has rules about the time frames associated with an injury claim. Your attorney will work with you to proceed through the case and ensure you are meeting all the applicable deadlines. A four year limit on legal filings is often imposed on cases, so hiring an attorney as soon as possible is very helpful.

Your specific legal case may have more or fewer steps involved, but typically a Florida injury attorney will work through these legal steps with you:

  • Consultation about your case
  • Investigation of the case
  • Demands submitted to the other lawyers
  • Filing a legal case
  • Discovery of information by both parties of the case
  • Mediation step to try and settle before court
  • A trial in a court of law
  • Appeal if needed

Finding an attorney you feel comfortable with will help you as well. A good attorney will be willing to answer questions about the legal process and keep you well informed so you do not have to worry as much.

Injury cases can be very overwhelming and you should not do it alone with any case. The law is very precise about accountability and proof in these cases, but without a good attorney, you will have a difficult time getting what you deserve in all aspects of the case.
