Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to settle my personal injury case?
The time it takes can vary greatly depending on many variables. Once the attorney puts together a case after looking at all the medical bills and determines any future bills and losses, then a demand can be made. Many times, this can’t be done until the victim reaches some level of recovery so the costs of the injury can be determined. It’s possible the case can settle soon after a demand is made, if not then it will go to trial which will slow the process down.
What’s the filing deadline in an auto accident case?
Under Florida Law, a victim of someone’s negligence in a personal injury case has four years to file the claim. (Florida Statutes Annotated section 95.11(3)). This starts at the date of injury, and if that deadline missed, it can mean that the right to make an injury claim is lost. This is the law as of January 2020, and the legislature can pass new laws changing the time to file.
Can I get lost wages in my accident case?
Florida law requires that when someone is injured due to another’s negligence, they have to pay for all injuries and financial losses related to the injury. These include things like medical bills, pain and suffering, permanent disability and lost wages (past and future).
