Common Personal Injuries
Here are some common personal injury lawsuits that are brought to court in Florida:
Slip and Fall
A slip and fall personal injury takes place when an individual is injured on a premise where someone should have been responsible for the hazardous situation that led to the injury. This could be private property, government buildings, or public spaces like a shopping mall. Florida statutes regarding premise liability state that the injured party must be able to prove that the owner or party responsible for the property had knowledge of the hazard and should have fixed it.
Car accidents are an unfortunately common way that people are injured or killed every day in the United States. If you have been in a car accident that was the fault of another driver, your injuries may deserve compensation beyond an insurance claim. Before dealing with an insurance company, contact a personal injury lawyer to discuss your situation and your possible options. You do not need to pay for someone else’s careless driving.
Motorcycles are very fun as both a driver or a passenger, but there are increased risks of accidents and injuries than in a car. This is often because of the other drivers, not the operator of the motorcycle. However, not being at fault does not mean there are not injuries. Motorcycle accidents can oftentimes cause worse damages than a collision between two cars at the same speed, simply because of the lack of protection to the driver and rider of the motorcycle. If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident in Winter Park, either as a driver or rider, contact us today to begin working on your case. We will consider all options when building your case, and will work with you to fight for the maximum damages you are owed.
Hit by Car
As a pedestrian, being hit by a car can be a serious, if not fatal, accident. You may be hit in a crosswalk, in a parking lot, or even on a sidewalk. Many times, drivers do not notice pedestrians because they are distracted (by their phone, radio, or anything else), or do not realize that the pedestrian has the right of way. No matter how you were struck by a car as a pedestrian, contact us immediately to begin working on your case and getting your life back in order. We understand that you injuries can be severe, disruptive, and possibly even cause permanent damages. No matter your individual situation, we will work towards recovering what you are owed so that you can focus on getting on with your life.

How Much Money Can I Get For My Injuries?
There are a variety of factors that go into the amount you can sue for in a personal injury lawsuit. Each injury and a reasonable amount of damages to seek will be specific to your circumstances, but below are some major factors that go into determining damages.
We will include the entire amount of your current medical bills into the base amount of the settlement amount we are seeking.
In addition to your medical bills, we will use previous pay stubs to determine the wages you have lost following your injury.
This will be the total repair or replacement value for everything that was damaged during the incident.
Future Lost Wages
Based on your projected recovery time, your future lost income will be included in the amount.
Future Medical Bills
We will work with medical professionals to determine any possible future medical expenses, and factor that into the amount.
If you are unable to return to your previous line of work, we may be able to include the cost of training to get you into a new field, or to return to your previous field in a different capacity.
Pain and Suffering
This type of damage is harder to calculate than the pure economic factors mentioned above, but is no less important. We will additionally factor in the non-economic damages that your injuries have caused.
There are many other issues that can go into the final amount that we will fight for. Our experience with personal injury cases will be a major benefit in ensuring that you are taken care of and properly compensated for every aspect of your injury, both economic and non-economic.
