PERSONAL INJURY & AUTO ACCIDENTS
Personal injury claims take on an entirely different character from criminal cases: here, the injured victim is seeking compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering arising out of the accident. The first step here is not to file a lawsuit, but to file a personal injury claim with the insurance company. Your Lakeland personal injury attorney must have detailed knowledge of Florida’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) laws in order to obtain a compensation amount that is fair and satisfactory.
If you have damages that surpass the amount allowable by PIP (such as special damages or medical expenses greatly exceeding the insured amount), your lawyer must be fully prepared to go to court and file a general personal injury lawsuit against the person, persons, or company responsible for your injury. The likely ground for such a lawsuit is negligence.
