Injuries Involving Significant/Permanent Loss Of An Important Bodily Function
The more severe your injury is, the higher your compensation is likely to be. These injuries can include loss of motion or function in an extremity, loss of hearing, and more. How much the damage will affect you in your daily life moving forward is also part of the consideration. For example, if it will affect your employment or role as a caretaker.
Injuries Considered Permanent Within A Reasonable Degree Of Medical Probability
An injury that is considered permanent within a reasonable degree of medical probability means that while you can make a full recovery, doctors advise that it is unlikely. These injuries are taken particularly seriously in a personal injury case. If you sustain chronic impairment as the result of another’s negligence, seek justice with the help of a personal injury lawyer near me today.
Injuries Involving Significant/Permanent Scarring Or Physical Disfigurement
You may have an injury that does not impair you physically, yet results in significant scarring or disfigurement. This is often seen in the case of burns and animal attacks, though it may result from any accident. This type of injury can cause psychological trauma, for which you are most likely entitled to compensation.
When death occurs following an accident, it is a tragic event that is incredibly challenging for loved ones. Whether it was the result of a drunk driving accident, medical malpractice, or otherwise, you can seek significant compensation in a personal injury case when suing for wrongful death.
PERSONAL INJURY THRESHOLD IN FLORIDA
There are many elements of a personal injury case that can affect your settlement. The lawyers at Weinstein Legal examines each of them carefully to ensure you get the largest settlement possible. Below is a list of several circumstances that can help determine the amount you will receive in a personal injury settlement.
Elements of a Personal Injury Case
In order for a personal injury case in Florida to be viable, it must meet the following four legal standards:
Duty of Care
In order to have a case, the defendant must have a legal duty of care to the plaintiff. For example, a driver has a legal duty of care to all other drivers. The proprietor of a business has a legal duty of care for the safety of individuals entering their business.
Failure to Exercise Reasonable Care
Once the duty of care has been established, the plaintiff must be able to demonstrate that the defendant breached it. For example, that the driver was careless or that a doctor deviated from sound medical practices.
The third element of a personal injury case is to show that the defendant’s failure to exercise due care resulted in the accident in question. For instance, a driver running a red light who hits another vehicle caused that accident.
The state of Florida allows for economic, non-economic, and punitive damages. Economic damages include tangible costs, such as medical bills, lost wages, etc. Non-economic damages are physical pain and suffering, mental anguish, and trauma. Punitive damages do not have to be established as a necessary element. Rather, they are awarded after the fact to further punish the defendant for egregious negligence or willful actions.
Our attorneys at Weinstein Legal will review your case during the initial free consultation to determine whether all four elements are present. Call today to speak with one of our personal injury attorneys.
What You Should Do If You’ve Been Involved in an Accident
The moments after an accident are crucial to both your safety and your recovery. By following these steps, you can help to protect your safety and preserve valuable evidence for your legal case:
Get to a Position of Safety
Before you take any other action, it’s essential that you preserve your safety. That often means remaining where you are, but if you aren’t physically safe, go to a place where you are.
Check on Injuries
Assess your physical condition and the welfare of others who may have been hurt in the same accident. For instance, if you’re in a car accident, check on your passengers and others who were involved in the accident.
When you call 911, the dispatcher will want to know your location, the nature of your emergency, the type of injuries involved, and additional information. Try to remain calm and provide the information that you are able to.
Take Images or Video with Your Cellphone
For personal injury cases, one of the biggest advantages of the modern age is the ability to preserve accident scene evidence immediately. From a position of safety, take pictures or video of property damage, injuries, debris, the scene as a whole, and any signs or geographic identifying information.
Gather Witness Information
Oftentimes, witnesses will leave after they are sure that accident victims are no longer in peril. Ask witnesses to wait until first responders arrive or ask them for their contact information. Make sure to preserve this information for your attorney and your case.
Allow EMTs to Examine You
If rescue units have been dispatched, allow them to give you an examination. If they recommend that you go to the hospital, follow their advice. Be sure to follow up with your own doctor. This will establish a baseline for your injuries.

HOW OUR PERSONAL INJURY LAWYER CAN HELP YOU

With mounting medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses, you don’t want to have to worry about also paying for diligent legal advice. Weinstein Legal will provide full legal representation, only collecting a fee if he wins.
STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS – DON’T WAIT
Personal injury cases have a shelf life. In the state of Florida, you have four years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim. With a wrongful death suit, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of death. That might sound like plenty of time, but it’s important that you speak to an attorney as soon as possible. Evidence can be lost and witnesses move or change their contact information. The earlier Weinstein Legal begins working on your case, the better your chances of success. Call today.
