How Much is My Injury Claim Worth?
Every injury claim is different, and there is unfortunately no exact formula
to calculate the amount that a settlement will be worth. A settlement
will depend on each unique circumstance leading up to your injury. However,
every injury claim has a common factor that is used to distinguish payout
amounts: special damages and general damages.
Special Damages: These damages are also referred to as “economic damages”.
These types of losses are measured by the amount of money that you lost
and will continue to lose due to the negligent accident. Special damages
include medical bills and lost wages.
General Damages: These types of damages are also known as “non-economic damages.”
These losses are intangible and signify what you have endured and will
continue to endure in the future. General damages include pain and emotional trauma.
Don’t Wait to File Your Claim!
According to the Florida Statutes section 95.11(3)(a) the statute of limitations
for personal injury cases in Florida is four years. This means you have
four years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you will lose
your right to recover compensation. Florida does recognize some exceptions
to this four-year rule, depending on the specifics on your case. If you
are unsure of how the statute of limitations may affect your case, contact

- Cases We Handle
Auto Accidents- Motor vehicle accidents are some of the most common reasons for death
in the United States. These unfortunate events can happen as a result
of distracted driving, drunk driving, aggressive drivers, dangerous road
conditions, and many more. If you or a loved one was harmed in a car crash,
you may have grounds for compensation.
Boating Accidents- Florida has some of the most beautiful water destinations in the world,
but this also means that the amount of incidents that happen on the water
are frequent. There are hundreds of fatalities that occur as a result
to negligent behavior in boats, every year. Hold the responsible parties
liable for you or your loved ones' injuries.
Defective Products- When you buy a product, the last thing that you expect is for that item
to cause you harm. When you have been injured due to a defective product
or a malfunctioning product, you can hold the manufacturer responsible
for your damages.
Medical Malpractice- Medical malpractice occurs when a patient was unreasonably harmed by
a medical professional who did not adhere to a required standard of care.
If you or a family member are suffering from injuries due to malpractice
from a doctor, you have the right to seek justice for your suffering by
filing a medical malpractice claim.
Workers' Compensation- When you are injured on the job, you may not feel like you have a lot
of people supporting you during your recovery. Employers have the responsibility
to compensate you for your injuries when you are caused harm in the workplace.
