How Can You Benefit from Legal Representation?
There is nothing more personal than an injury. You are the only person on Earth who understands exactly what you’re going through under your circumstances. Insurance companies, bill collectors, hospitals, and judges aren’t in your shoes. They might not try to help you. Instead of trying to sympathize with you during this difficult time, they will harass you for payments and information. Hiring a lawyer removes this burden from your shoulders. Your Gainesville personal injury lawyer can take over communications with insurance claims adjusters and others so that you can focus on what’s most important – you.
Fischer Redavid PLLC sees the person behind the injury lawsuit. We represent human beings, not corporations. We know that everyone has his/her own unique life story and needs that are specific only to them. Our firm operates by listening to our clients’ stories, understanding them as people, and respecting them first and foremost as humans. How does this help our clients’ cases? It enables us to personalize their legal strategies just for them.
Representation from our Gainesville personal injury lawyers can make a world of difference in your Gainesville personal injury claim. We work nonstop to get the best possible results for our clients. We never stop trying to outthink, outwork, and outperform our opponents in and out of the courtroom. That’s how we deliver results that meet and exceed our clients’ expectations. Our unrelenting commitment to our clients and our craft means outstanding results for you. Review some of our most noteworthy cases to see our work in action.
Florida Personal Injury Laws
The first step in securing financial compensation for your personal injury accident is understanding what the law says in the state of Florida. It is a claimant’s job to know the law and play by the rules. Otherwise, the claimant might unintentionally give up his/her right to compensation. Our attorneys are happy to explain the specifics of Florida’s personal injury laws during a free legal consultation. In the meantime, here is a brief overview of three of the laws we find most important:
- Statute of limitations. Don’t wait too long to file your personal injury claim. In Florida, injured parties have four years from the date of the accident or discovery of injury to file. While this might seem like a long time, the deadline can sneak up on you. Waiting can also result in lost or damaged evidence. The sooner you contact an attorney, the better.
- No-fault auto insurance laws. Florida is one of only a few states that abide by “no-fault” car insurance laws. This means that, regardless of fault, crash victims will seek damage recovery through their own insurance companies. Victims can only pursue compensation through the personal injury court system if the crash caused catastrophic or permanent injuries.
- Comparative negligence law. If you’re worried that you contributed to your accident, don’t assume this bars you from recovery. Florida is a pure comparative negligence state, meaning that even if you were 90% responsible, you could recover for the other 10% of someone else’s fault. The courts will simply reduce your award by your share of fault for the accident.
Contact our attorneys, John Fischer, Jordan Redavid, and associates for more information about the state and local laws that may impact your specific case. We can help you navigate the law in a way that benefits you most. Our Gainesville personal injury lawyers have years of experience in this practice area. We know the law forward and backward.
