At GED Lawyers, our Florida personal injury lawyer is here to fight for fair compensation aimed at helping you recover from the accidental injuries you have suffered.
Accidents are unpredictable but usually preventable. When someone acts recklessly, their negligent behavior can cause personal injuries to innocent people. Such injuries may take a lot of money to recover from. If you or a loved one sustained an injury from someone else’s negligence, we could help you secure compensation with a personal injury claim or lawsuit.
What Is a Personal Injury in Florida?
Personal injury refers to when a person incurs physical, mental, or emotional injuries rather than injuries to their property. Property damage is only compensable in these situations if it involves personal bodily harm.
Some examples of personal injury cases that we handle include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Injuries from faulty products
- Dog bites and animal attacks
- Construction accidents
- Work-related accidents
- Poor road conditions
Through a personal injury claim or a lawsuit, you can legally demand the at-fault party pay for the losses you’ve suffered from the injury due to their reckless, negligent, or malicious acts.
After a personal injury accident, victims are limited in time, knowledge, or energy to navigate through the complex legal proceedings governing a lawsuit. Having our Florida personal injury lawyer leading your case from start to finish ensures that you can devote your entire time to recovering from the accident. At the same time, our legal firm handles the process of obtaining fair compensation for you.

How Our Florida Personal Injury Attorney Can Help with Your Lawsuit
The impact of personal injury can cripple your physical and mental health, especially if you’re facing a piling mount of bills that you were unprepared for.
Don’t lose hope—if you choose to hire our personal injury lawyers, we will handle the entire legal process related to retrieving compensation. We will also offer you legal guidance whenever required. Here are some of the services we offer for Florida personal injury cases:
We Will Conduct a Thorough Investigation of the Case
We will first verify that you have a legally valid case with a reasonable potential for compensation. We will then investigate your case in-depth to identify evidence and at-fault party.
We Will Prove Negligence
Your attorney will develop an evidence-based case that demonstrates the defendant’s fault. For this, we will prove the four elements of negligence:
- Duty of care: The at-fault party owed you a duty of care. For example, a business owner is responsible for keeping their premise free from any hazard that may cause injuries to their employees or customers.
- Breach of duty: The at-fault party breached the duty of care. For example, a business owner could fail to fix a broken step.
- Causation: The accident or incident resulted from a breach of duty. For example, the broken step caused you to trip and fall.
- Losses: You suffered losses from the accident. For instance, you could have broken your leg from falling on broken steps.
Your attorney will have to demonstrate each of the above standards of negligence to successfully hold the at-fault party liable for your injuries.
We Will Collect Evidence To Support Your Losses
The personal injury attorney will then begin obtaining photographs, video footage, witness testimonies, medical reports, medical bills, employment letters, and other evidence that will work in favor of bringing you favorable compensation.
We Will Calculate Your Case’s Value
We will look at the facts of your case and interview you to determine the full range of compensable damages you have suffered. We will then assign a dollar value to your case.
We Can File a Claim With the Insurance Company
We will submit a claim and a demand letter to the at-fault party’s insurance company. All the necessary forms and supporting documents will be submitted.
We Will Negotiate With the Insurance Company
Your attorney will handle all communication with the other party’s insurance company. We will also negotiate with the insurer until fair compensation is reached.
We Can Represent You in Court
The insurer will not budge and agree to fair compensation in a few cases. We will move forward with a lawsuit and present your case in court if this happens.

Our Personal Injury Attorney in Florida Can Recover These Losses
Since each case is unique, the exact damages available to you will depend on the facts of your case. In general, here are three categories of damages you may pursue:
These entail financial losses such as:
- Past, present, and future medical expenses
- Loss of past, current, and future earnings
- Cost of future medical care
- Out-of-pocket expenses
These cover non-financial losses you’ve suffered that are generally intangible.
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of consortium or companionship
- Loss of limb
An additional layer of damages are awarded in cases where the defendant’s actions were significantly reckless or malicious. It is meant to punish the defendant and prevent others from repeating the offense.
Our Florida Personal Injury Lawyer Will Take Swift Action for Damages
Florida’s statute of limitations restricts your time to pursue legal action against those responsible for your injuries. According to Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a), you generally have four years from the date of the accident or incident to file a claim.
If you attempt to pursue compensation after this deadline, the court will very likely dismiss your case, and you’ll relinquish your right to any compensation. There are a few cases where the deadline may extend. Our attorney can explain how the statute of limitations will affect your case, depending on your situation.
