Assert Your Rights Through a Personal Injury Claim
In Florida, victims injured by someone else’s negligence have four years in which to file a personal injury claim. Although this may seem like a significant amount of time, the period immediately following an accident is extremely important for collecting and preserving evidence and determining what happened to ensure that the basis of any claim remains intact. Personal injury lawsuits are often necessary when insurance limits are not enough to adequately cover the costs of a significant injury that a victim has suffered. As a personal injury attorney in the Boca Raton area, David B. Datny recognizes how critical it is to obtain full compensation for your costs and losses and how stressful the legal process can be.
Personal injury claims are based on the legal theory of negligence, which exists when one party has breached its duty to another party. In motor vehicle collisions such as car and truck accidents, this duty is often attributable to a driver who has acted unreasonably behind the wheel, causing injuries to another driver, passenger, pedestrian, or bicyclist. These accidents unfortunately are all too common in Florida. The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reported that, in 2015, there were over 240,000 injuries in the state resulting from a traffic-related accident, which was an increase of nearly eight percent from the previous year.
In situations in which a victim is injured due to a slip and fall accident, or another dangerous condition found on another party’s property, the owner of the business or other premises can be held accountable for breaching the duty to provide a safe environment to visitors. Once a breach of a duty is established, a victim must also show that the breach caused his or her injuries and that damages resulted from the breach. Boca Raton personal injury attorney David B. Datny can help you to determine who is at fault for your injuries and to take the proper steps to ensure that your legal rights are protected following a serious accident.
In Florida, victims who are injured in part by their own negligence can still pursue legal action against other negligent parties. Following a pure comparative fault scheme of awarding damages, victims receive compensation in proportion to a defendant’s degree of liability. Accident victims can recover damages associated with past and future medical expenses, diminished earning capacity, lost income, and, in some instances, pain and suffering.
