Damages You Can Recover in a Personal Injury Suit
Many people who have been seriously injured are skeptical about filing a personal injury claim. While pursuing legal action can be intimidating, filing a personal injury claim may be the only way that you are able to recover the compensation that you deserve for your injuries. By filing a personal injury claim, you can seek compensation for the value of your:
- Medical expenses;
- Pain and suffering;
- Property damage costs;
- Lost wages; and
- Any other economic or noneconomic losses suffered.
Clearwater Personal Injury Statute of Limitations
Following a Clearwater accident, taking action quickly is important. Our lawyers strongly recommend seeking immediate medical care, informing the authorities if appropriate, and gathering as much evidence at the scene as possible. We also recommend bringing forth an insurance claim as soon as possible – if too much time passes between when your accident occurs and when you notify your insurer, you could be barred from recovery.
It’s also important to consider the statute of limitations for your claim. Per Florida Statutes Section 95.11, a plaintiff has four years from the date of their injury to bring forth a civil action founded on negligence. Note that in most cases a claim will settle without the necessity of filing a lawsuit. Our lawyers work hard to reach a settlement that is fair as quickly as possible.
