We all know that car accidents are one of the most common causes of injuries for Florida residents and people throughout the country. Every year, thousands of these accidents leave people with completely changed lives, facing medical care for weeks or months or even suffering injuries so severe that full recovery is not expected. But, there are other ways that Florida residents can suffer injuries as well.
Truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice and even accidents caused by defective consumer products are all ways in which residents might suffer a life-altering injury. When such an injury occurs, the victim may quickly be facing mounting healthcare costs, even if they have health insurance.
When an injury occurs, the right approach to the legal case that may be necessary in the aftermath is crucial. In most cases, there is a definitive timeframe within such a legal case needs to be filed, or else it cannot be pursued.
In a personal injury lawsuit, victims must show that the party that caused the accident owed them a duty of care or careful conduct that said duty was breached, that the breach directly lead to the injuries that the victim suffered and the victim has recoverable damages as a result. Any resident who finds themselves in a position to potentially pursue a personal injury lawsuit may want to get more information about their options.
