You’ll need to be familiar with Florida Personal Injury Laws if you’ve had a Personal Injury or any type of accident and need to submit an insurance claim or lawsuit, because some are considered “time sensitive”.
Let’s review a few of the Florida Personal injury laws that you may be concerned with. You need to be aware of the deadlines also called Statute of Limitations, for filing an injury lawsuit in Florida. This is why it is so important to hire a personal injury attorney as soon as you have your accident. Immediately jumping on a case gives you more leverage and also allows for your injury lawyer and his investigators to adequately collect evidence and testimonies from witnesses while it is all fresh in their minds.
Often there are accident cases where the person you are accusing to be responsible for the damages or injuries is also claiming that you were at fault as well. This is when you need to understand how the Florida Comparative Negligence Law works. If both parties can prove the other partially responsible for the incident, compensation will be effected by what percentage of the accident has been labeled as your fault.
