Riverview Personal Injury Lawyer

Even the most cautious people get into accidents occasionally. You might trip and fall inside of your house or suffer a minor burn while cooking. While inconvenient, these types of accidents generally do not cause significant damages. Unfortunately, when another person’s carelessness or recklessness leads to a severe mishap, the consequences can be devastating.

After an accident, your injuries might require you to undergo serious medical treatment, which can lead to high medical bills piling up. If you must take time off work during your recovery, the loss of income can cause even greater financial strain. Fortunately, state law allows you to pursue compensation for the person responsible for your injuries.

Our dedicated team at Hancock Injury Attorneys can work with you to gather evidence and build a strong case against the other party. Let our Riverview personal injury lawyers inform you of your rights and guide you through the legal process.

What Are the Common Types of Personal Injury Cases?

There are many different forms of personal injury lawsuits. Each may be subject to its own unique laws. Our knowledgeable attorneys have handled several types of accident cases. Some of the most common types of claims include:

A lawyer can assess your situation to determine how best to proceed with your case.

How Do You Prove the Defendant is Liable?

You must establish all the elements of legal negligence to hold a defendant liable for your injuries. A defendant is negligent when they breach the duty of reasonable care they owe you, directly causing you to suffer injuries. Gathering adequate evidence is crucial to proving negligence in a personal injury claim.

Common forms of evidence include:

Anything that could be used to prove the other party is at fault can be useful in your case. Our attorneys have significant experience with accident claims and can help you gather the necessary evidence to present it in court or a settlement negotiation.

Compensation in a Riverview Accident Claim

Compensation in the form of monetary damages can help you manage your health, finances, and future after a severe accident. A properly proven claim may result in substantial compensation for your economic and non-economic losses. These may include:

These damages can help you begin to move on after an accident and hold the negligent party responsible for their wrongful conduct. Our qualified injury attorneys can examine your losses to determine how much compensation may be available to you.

Time Limits in Personal Injury Cases

Most personal injury cases within the state are subject to the four-year statute of limitations established by Florida Statutes Annotated § 95.11(3). Most claims must be presented within this period, or they will be lost, regardless of whether they would otherwise have been successful. If you wait too long to file your case, you may lose the opportunity to seek compensation from the other party.

Why Should You Hire an Accident Lawyer?

No matter the situation, personal injury cases are complicated for anyone without extensive legal knowledge. In a legal case, you must follow state law, the rules of evidence, and the rules of civil procedure. If you make any mistakes regarding these complex rules and procedures, you could jeopardize your case.

Attorney Mike Hancock has years of experience in personal injury law. He also spent time working in insurance defense, meaning he understands the tactics the other party may use to deny you compensation. Working with our reputable legal team can significantly improve your chances of recovering the compensation you need.
