Fighting for Injured Victims of Harmful Negligence

When you are injured in an accident, it can be hard to know how to proceed. Accidents can cause serious damage to victims, especially those severely injured or who have lost a loved one. Along with physical pain, accidents can cause emotional trauma, property damage, and issues with medical costs.

When these circumstances have been caused by the negligence or intentional wrongdoing of another party, that party should be held accountable. At the Sconzo Law Office, P.A., our trial lawyers are committed to pursuing justice for the injured.

While most awarded damages have no maximum amount, some restrictions exist for motor vehicle accident cases in Florida. Our accident attorneys will ensure you get the amount of compensation you need to recover after your injury.

Understanding Florida Personal Injury Law

Like many states, Florida has its own laws regarding personal injury. Importantly, the statute of limitations to file an claim in Florida is four years in most cases. However, exceptions exist for injuries not discovered for some time after the original incident. In addition, the statute of limitations can be paused if the defendant leaves Florida or the victim needs time to recover.

In addition, Florida is considered a no-fault state in regards to car accidents. This means each driver's insurance pays for damages no matter who is actually at fault. In most auto accidents, a person cannot file a lawsuit against the person they believe to be at fault. However, injured victims can file a lawsuit against a person responsible for serious injuries, such as permanent disfigurement, disability, and death.

What to Do If You Were Hit by an Uninsured Driver in Florida

Even though Florida law mandates that all drivers have car insurance, there are still situations where you can get in an accident with an uninsured driver. Uninsured drivers can cause difficulties when it comes to filing a claim and collecting on damages.

If the at-fault driver in your accident was uninsured, you will want to let your insurance company know of this right away. If your insurance is unable to fully compensate you for your injuries, your next recourse would be to sue the negligent driver.

Retaining a lawyer with experience in both federal and state injury law is vital for protecting your rights. We can help you get the full compensation you are legally owed so you can focus on your recovery.
