How Serious Must an Injury Be to File a Personal Injury Claim in Florida?
If you have been injured in a traffic collision, like an auto, truck, motorcycle, or pedestrian accident caused by another person’s negligence in Florida, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim to pursue financial recovery for your damages.
At The Law Offices of Keith Bregoff, our personal injury attorney in Vero Beach represents clients who have suffered all types of injuries, including serious and catastrophic injuries that have changed their lives without notice.
You do not have to face the negligent driver or their insurance company alone. We are here to help guide you through the legal process, so you can focus on your physical and emotional wellness while we pursue the financial recovery you deserve.
When is a Personal Injury Considered Serious in Florida?
When someone is hurt in an accident, their injuries may have different aftereffects than another person’s might.
Simply put, one person may suffer a Traumatic Brain Injury that is effectively treated through medical care, therapy, and rehabilitation, while another — who suffers the same type of brain injury — may suffer permanent harm that requires life-long medical care that keeps them from returning to work or their previous quality of life.
The same is true for other common injuries that occur during traffic collisions, which may include, but are not limited to:
- Broken bones
- Internal bleeding
- Organ damage
- Joint, muscle, and ligament damage
- Neck and spine injuries
- Dog bite or attack injuries
Each of these injuries may require lengthy medical care, time away from work, and additional expenses that can become financially overwhelming to our clients almost immediately after the accident occurs.
When these severe injuries cause significant damages, our clients deserve to explore their eligibility to pursue a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent party, so they are not left paying their injury expenses out of pocket.
Significant and Permanent Injuries Require Experienced Legal Representation
Significant and permanent injuries sustained during an accident requires an experienced personal injury attorney to pursue the complete financial outcome the injured party deserves, as their medical requirements alone could reach hundreds of thousands of dollars over their lifetime.
At The Law Offices of Keith Bregoff, our Vero Beach personal injury attorneys will evaluate your overall financial needs from the time the accident occurred throughout the rest of your life when you have suffered a significant and/or permanent loss of an important bodily function, which could include loss of a limb, paralysis, scarring, or disfigurement because of another’s negligence.
These catastrophic injuries will require our accident lawyers in Vero Beach to fully assess the financial toll they have taken on your livelihood and your future quality of life, so we can pursue the negligent party for your full financial recovery.
