Why You Should Hire a Lauderdale Harbours Personal Injury Lawyer Even If You are Partially at Fault for Your Accident
Florida is a comparative negligence state. Different states have different interpretations of comparative negligence. In Florida, pure comparative negligence is applied. This means that if a fault is shared by the parties involved in the accident, a percentage of fault is awarded to the parties based on how their actions contributed to the accident. The compensation awarded to the injured party is reduced based on the percentage or degree of fault they had in the accident or incident that resulted in their injuries.
For example, if you were injured in a collision with another driver who was speeding, your compensation will be reduced if you were found to have been talking on the phone while driving. In such a scenario, you may be found to be 20 percent at fault for the accident. If your claim was worth $300,000, you will only receive $240,000 as the 20 percent will be deducted from the sum of your compensation.
This doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t be honest with your Lauderdale Harbours personal injury attorney. Do not try to hide any facts about the accident in an effort to get more compensation. Chances are that these factors will be found out in the investigation by the defendant and used against you. Be sure to be upfront about the circumstances of your case. Our attorneys will provide you create a strategy to defend your rights to compensation. They can build a strong case on your behalf when they are aware of all the facts.

Frequently Asked Questions about Personal Injury Cases in Lauderdale Harbours, FL
When a person suffers a physical injury, it is termed as a personal injury from a legal standpoint. In order for you to file a personal injury claim, the personal injury must have been caused by another party. One can claim compensation for their physical injuries as well as property damage that occurred as a result of an accident or incident caused by another person’s negligence. However, you must prove that the accident or incident was caused as a result of the negligence of their other party in order to recover compensation. You must also show that the other party had a duty of care and that they breached this duty.
Personal injury cases in Florida must be filed within four years. This time is measured from the date of the accident or incident that resulted in the injury. The deadline for filing lawsuits against government entities as well as for medical malpractice lawsuits is even shorter. It is therefore important to start working with a Lauderdale Harbours personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the accident. This will help in preserving evidence while it is still fresh. It will also ensure that you do not miss out on any deadlines.
