Do You Have The Right To Seek Compensation For Your Injuries?

A Simple Guide To Choosing Your Law FirmBeing involved in an accident is something that nobody wants to happen to them. But sadly, every single day hundreds of accidents occur on Florida roads. There are plenty of different causes for these accidents, but what they all share is that recovery period following the accident. In some instances it may just be your nerves that need a few hours to heal up, but what if you're physically injured?

Being injured in an auto accident can lead to significant injuries that can take days, weeks, and in some cases even years to fully recover from. And those physical injuries can often lead to significant financial burdens as well. When you think about things like lost wages at work, medical bills, and the cost to repair your vehicle, you'll have a major financial burden placed on your shoulders.

Seeking personal injury compensation is one option that you might need to consider, and something that is worth doing for almost anyone. But what stops many from doing so is simply an uncertainty that they can even seek out compensation and get what they're owed. The easiest answer here is that if your injuries were caused by the actions of someone else, there is a very good chance that you can seek compensation.

But, it can go a bit deeper than that and as such it's worth looking more closely at the subject.

The Grounds To Seek Compensation


You'll want to talk to a personal injury lawyer if you've been involved in an accident, obviously. They'll be able to review your case and say for certain whether or not you have the right to seek financial compensation. But, there are a few basic points that you can understand that will help you know more about what they'll tell you.

Under Florida law, you may be able to seek compensation if your accident was caused by the reckless or negligent actions of someone else. Reckless or negligent behavior can include a number of things including:


  • Drunk driving

  • Speeding

  • Driving erratically

  • Failure to properly maintain a vehicle

  • Texting while driving

  • Poor design of a road or street that is unsafe

  • Failure of parts of your vehicle

  • And more


In the vast majority of auto accident personal injury cases, it's another driver who is held liable for damages. But in some, trucking companies, auto manufacturers, and even city engineers might be held responsible. Being able to determine just who is at fault is one of the main reasons that speaking to a personal injury lawyer is so important for you.

Standing Up To Challenges


Making sure that you can seek compensation is only the first step. Insurance companies aren't exactly known for their willingness to pay out large sums of money, and as such, they'll likely be fighting against your efforts to get anything.

That's where your attorney plays an even larger role. They'll help make sure that you don’t' accept settlements that are unfair, and do the arguing for you. They take the heavy work and stress away from you so that you may focus on what's most important - physically healing from your injuries.
