Personal Injury

Holding the At-Fault Party Liable for Your Injuries

If you sustain injuries in an accident, you’ll likely incur various expenses and losses. Thinking about high medical bills or being unable to work because of your injuries might put even more stress on an already frustrating situation. Fortunately, in Florida, if you suffer harm because of an accident caused by another person, you could file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party. When you pursue this type of legal action, you may be able to obtain compensation for damages.

Unfortunately, personal injury cases are not always straightforward. They involve mounds of paperwork, adherence to certain deadlines, and negotiations with insurance companies.

What Types of Damages Can I Claim?

Individuals harmed in accidents might sustain a variety of injuries, such as broken bones, fractures, brain injuries, or spinal cord injuries. These often require extensive medical treatment and may result in prolonged hospital stays. On top of that, the injured individual might not be able to work, which means they might have trouble paying for the care they need. Personal injury laws allow the victim to recover compensation for damages.

In a personal injury case, the types of damages you can recover compensation for include, but are not limited to:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain/suffering
  • Loss of consortium

Although some damages, such as medical expenses, might be easy to calculate because there is a record of costs, others, like loss of consortium, may be more difficult. That is why it’s important to have our Tampa personal injury lawyer on your side. We will examine every detail of your circumstances to put together a demand package to send to the at-fault party’s insurance.

What’s the Process of a Personal Injury Claim?

To begin a personal injury case, you must file a claim with the responsible person’s insurance company. The company will start its own investigation to determine whether or not the policyholder is liable for damages. Often, these companies are concerned with protecting their financial interests and will deny your claim. When you hire our Tampa personal injury lawyer, we will be focused on protecting your best interests. We will build a case on your behalf to challenge the company’s denial.

If the insurance company accepts your claim, you may enter into negotiations. This is a back and forth process where you, your lawyer, and the insurance company try to settle on a fair compensation amount.

If the negotiation process is unsuccessful, you may file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. This can be lengthy, as your case must be scheduled for a court date and a judge or jury will hear the facts to determine whether or not you should receive compensation.

Whether your claim can be settled during negotiations or must be taken to court, our lawyer at Taracks & Associates will work toward a favorable outcome on your behalf.
