Personal Injury
"Personal injury" refers to an injury that has been caused by one or more of a broad array of accidents and in some cases by another person's actions. Our firm has been dedicated to helping victims of personal injury get the compensation they deserve
Common Types of Personal Injury Accidents
Most people generally think of personal injury law in the context of an automobile or motorcycle accident. There are millions of cars on the road and thousands of accidents every year. Often these accidents are caused by the negligence of a driver which results in harm to another motorist. The most common auto or motorcycle accidents include rear-end crashes, failure to yield, and running a stop sign or red light.

Other common personal injury cases include:

- Slip, trip and fall accidents: whether it is spilled liquid or an uneven flooring surface, you may be entitled to compensation if you fall in a store or public facility.

- Dog bite cases: if you were bit, mauled, or maimed by a dog or other pet animal, even if the animal wasn't known to be aggressive, our law firm can make sure your rights are protected.

- Medical malpractice: any person who was harmed because of the negligence of a doctor, nurse, EMT or other medical professional may be entitled to compensation. Medical malpractice is an extremely complex area of personal injury law that requires years of experience and legal skill.

If you've been injured in a car accident, you may be able to recover damages in the form of a payout from your insurance company or a damages award in court.

Florida is one of the few states where there is no-fault liability for car accidents. This means that it's easier to be compensated for your injuries, but it's harder for you to receive an amount higher than a predetermined limit. The purpose of the no-fault system is to lower automobile insurance premiums; prevent backlog in the courts (by reducing the total number of lawsuits brought before them); allow for people who have been injured in car accidents to be compensated; and facilitate recovery of damages by providing an avenue other than the traditional tort system.

Under the no-fault system, anyone who is involved in a car accident will be indemnified for his or her losses arising out of the accident from his or her insurance company. This is regardless of whether or not the person was at fault for the accident. In exchange for this easy payout, however, it has become even harder to succeed in a private lawsuit against the person who caused the car accident.

All Florida motorists are required to obtain personal injury protection (PIP), which pays up to $10,000 for any bodily injury that is sustained in a car accident. PIP covers the insured motorist, relatives of the motorist who live in the same household, people who operate the insured car, passengers of the insured car, and anyone who is hit by the insured car. It indemnifies a fixed percentage of reasonable medical expenses, lost wages, replacement services, and funeral expenses. Under PIP, you cannot recover non-economic damages (such as pain and suffering).

In Florida, a person who has been injured in a car accident can still sue for damages in court if he can prove that the injuries arising out of the car accident were sufficiently high. This is known as the verbal threshold. If you've been injured in a Florida car accident, you can sue for:

- Economic damages not covered by PIP (although this amount can be reduced by your percentage of fault in the accident); and
- Non-economic damages (such as pain, suffering, mental anguish, and inconvenience) arising out of the accident where there is:

A. Significant and permanent loss of an important bodily function;
B. A reasonable degree of medical probability of a permanent injury (other than scarring or disfigurement);
C. Significant and permanent scarring or disfigurement; or
D. Death.
