Personal Injuries in Stuart
If you suffered injuries because another party was careless, you may be eligible to hold them liable for your damages under Florida law. Personal injury lawsuits stem from many different types of accidents, including car crashes, falls, dog attacks, defective products, and more.
While most victims are eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit seeking compensation, Florida law disallows car accident victims in the state from filing suit against the at-fault party unless they suffered significant scarring or a permanent disability. Instead, auto accident victims recoup their losses by filing a claim with their own personal injury protection (PIP) insurance provider.
Enlisting the help of an experienced personal injury law firm is key, because your lawyer will manage all aspects of your case, from filing an insurance claim with the at-fault party’s insurer, to collecting evidence, to negotiating a settlement. If the insurance company denies your claim or refuses to offer a fair settlement, litigation may be necessary. Your attorney will continue to attempt to negotiate a fair settlement for you throughout this process, and an out-of-court settlement is usually eventually possible. If not, your lawyer will present evidence to the jury that proves the negligence of the liable party and demonstrates your injuries..
