Personal injury is a legal term which references an injury you’ve incurred because of someone else’s careless behavior or intent. Under Florida law, anyone who causes injury to another person may be held financially liable for damages.

The Top 10 Most Common Personal Injury Cases
Personal injuries don’t just happen from one type of accident. There are several types of accidents and circumstances which can result in personal injury to a victim. That’s why it is not enough to hire any personal injury lawyer. You need a lawyer who is experienced at handling personal injury cases which resulted from the same type of accident you suffered.
Louis Law Group has a team of personal injury lawyers who are trained and experienced at overseeing the most common types of personal injury cases that take place in Fort Lauderdale. These types of personal injury cases include the following:
Bicycle Accident – An injury caused while riding a bicycle because of poor road conditions or another car hitting the victim.
Bus Accident – A bus hits a car on the road and causes the victim to suffer an injury.
Car Accident – An accident in which one or more vehicles collide with a car. The victim receives an injury from the accident, regardless of who is at fault.
Construction Accident – An injury that occurs on a construction site. The cause could be related to the conditions of the site itself, or an accident where an object or piece of debris falls and hits the victim on the site.
Lyft or Uber Accident – As the passenger of a Lyft or Uber ride, the driver gets into an accident which causes an injury to the victim.
Motorcycle Accident – The victim gets into a traffic accident while riding a motorcycle and sustain injuries from it. Sometimes the road conditions may also be the cause of the accident.
Pedestrian Accident – The victim gets hit by another vehicle while travelling on foot. A serious injury usually follows from such an incident.
Slip-and-Fall – The victim slips and falls on someone else’s property and sustains an injury from it.

It’s important that you document all the financial costs and expenses you’ve incurred as a result of your injury. Once we review your financial documentation, we can put a fair dollar value on the damages and make sure you get paid that value by the at-fault party.
The Process of Proving Fault and Negligence
An accident often occurs because someone was negligent in an incident or environment. Maybe a driver was distracted behind the wheel of their car and accidentally hit someone unintentionally. Perhaps someone slipped and fell on the floor in a retail store because it had just been washed and no one put up any warning signs. These are clear examples of negligence where compensation would be owed to the victims.
To seek compensation for your personal injury, we must prove that someone else was at fault for your injury because of their negligence. If the evidence exists which shows this occurred, then the at-fault party is liable for the damages you’ve suffered. We will go over your medical records, smartphone photos and videos, surveillance photos and videos, eyewitness testimony, police reports, business reports, and whatever other evidence exists in order to prove your case.
Negligence is determined by examining the responsibility of the other party. If they had a duty to prevent a dangerous situation from occurring, but they failed to do that, then they were negligent. In that case, they are liable for the financial, physical, and emotional damages you suffer as a result of the accident. The exact amount of compensation is calculated by considering the costs of your medical care, lost wages, home accessibility renovations, wheelchairs, stairlifts, walkers, physical therapists, long-term treatment facilities, property damage, lost future earnings, and/or pain and suffering.

Florida law requires any personal injury victim to file a lawsuit within 4 years of the date on which the initial accident occurred. If you wait longer than 4 years to file a lawsuit, then it will be dismissed in court because of Florida’s Statute of Limitations regarding personal injury civil cases.
Furthermore, no insurance company will compensate you for damages if you’ve waited 4 years to file a claim. Insurance companies only settle on a claim when they’re scared of a possible lawsuit. If there is no threat of a lawsuit, then insurance companies have virtually all the power in the decision over whether to grant compensation to the victim. Most of the time, that decision is no.
Therefore, you need to make the right decision for your own sake. Contact Louis Law Group as soon as possible and let us get your lawsuit against the at-fault party started immediately. We can negotiate with any insurance companies involved and fight for a fair settlement on your behalf.
