What is Personal Injury Law?

The term personal injury refers to injuries that are caused to a person's physical, mental, or emotional health. These injuries are usually the result of negligence on the part of another person, either intentional or unintentional. In cases where a serious injury has taken place, it can be confusing and challenging to know what to do next. Medical bills can pile up as a result of the injury and make it hard, if not impossible, for the injured person to return to work. Long-term damage to quality of life can also be a struggle for many who experience a severe personal injuries. Some personal injuries can be terminal as in the case of wrongful death, DUI accidents or medical malpractice. There severe instances can rattle a family and cause permanent harm to their family unit and their way of life. 


Personal injuries can happen to anyone in any situation. The types of personal injuries possible vary just as much as the situations where they can arise. Here are some examples of common cases where personal injury can occur:


There are many contractual and statutory time limits associated with a personal injury case. For example here in Florida the sate legislature just changed the statute to 2 years from 4 years. So if you were involved in an automobile accident on or after 3/24/23 you have a 2 year statute of limitations to file a suit any accident prior to that date had a 4 years statute of limitations.  Please call us at 561-626-6007 or contact us online for a free consultation to discuss your particular needs. Don't wait, Call us Today as time could be running out. 

Here is another statute people are not aware of. Did you know? In Florida you have 14 days to see a doctor or medical professional if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident. If you do not, then your auto insurance is NOT responsible and WILL NOT pay your bills. 

This is just one of many little tricks or statutes the insurance companies use not to pay your bills. Give us a call and we will help guide you through this complex legal process.


If you have been involved in a personal injury case in Florida, it is extremely important that a personal injury attorney be contacted to help with all the necessary paperwork that goes along with the filing process. Do Not try to settle with the insurance company yourself. This never works out in your favor. Also be leery of the insurance companies that offer you a check at the scene of the accident. In most cases you will be signing a release and giving up your right to sue them. If this happens there is NOT much any lawyer can do for you. Years ago, there was a popular insurance company advertising this tactic and many people fell for it. These are the kinds of things that an attorney will protect you from.
