Helping Injury Victims Recover Their Entitled Compensation in Marion County

Suffering a serious injury can significantly derail your life. Medical bills can be extremely costly, and paying them can be difficult, especially if you are forced to miss time from work. Although you may seek financial compensation from the at-fault party, either them or their insurance company will try their best to either reduce the amount you deserve or deny your claim entirely. That is why you need an experienced personal injury lawyer to ensure you obtain your entitled compensation.

At Dunham & Ingram LLC, we are dedicated to providing our clients with effective and personalized legal solutions, as well as helping them make the best possible recovery from injury. Our legal team can investigate the accident, gather supporting evidence, work closely with accident reconstruction experts, and negotiate with insurers in order to maximize your entitled award.

Florida Personal Injury Statute of Limitations

If you suffered an injury caused by another person or entity, you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against them. According to the statute of limitations in Florida, you have four years from the date the accident occurred to file a lawsuit.

In order to succeed in a personal injury claim, you must be able to prove the following elements:

  1. The defendant owed you a “duty of care”

  2. The defendant breached this duty

  3. The defendant’s breach resulted in the underlying accident and your injuries

  4. You suffered monetary losses due to your injuries

Economic vs Non-Economic Damages

There are two main types of damages you can claim: economic damages and non-economic damages. The former consists of tangible financial losses, such as medical-related expenses, property damage, and lost wages, while the latter entails damages that are less tangible losses, such as emotional distress, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium. In addition, you may be awarded punitive damages if the defendant’s actions were grossly negligent and/or malicious in nature.

However, if the at-fault party claims that you are either totally or partially to blame, Florida adheres to a “pure comparative negligence” rule, which means your total award will be reduced according to your percentage of liability in the accident. For instance, if you were determined to be 10 percent at fault for an accident and your total award is $100,000, then your final award amount will be $90,000.
