Your Local Clearwater Personal Injury Law Firm

Contrary to popular belief, you should rarely rely solely on your insurance company to help you receive the just compensation you deserve following an accident.

The main goal of every insurance agency is to settle your claim quickly and for as little money as possible. Instead, depend upon our local personal injury attorneys to help you through this difficult time.

We assist in all of the following areas:

If you’ve been in an accident—a car crash, for example—that resulted in little to no property damage or injuries, then filing a claim may not be necessary. However, in the event that serious property damages or injuries occurred, your insurance settlement likely won’t cut it.

This is because medical costs can add up very quickly and often exceed the typical insurance settlement. Also, an insurance settlement is a one-time event that is often granted quickly. This can backfire if you end up needing more extensive medical treatment than you initially expected later on.

However, even in minor accident cases, you may have a viable personal injury claim on your hands. We recommend consulting with a Florida lawyer experienced in personal injury matters no matter how minor your accident seems just in case. Most personal injury lawyers offer confidential consultations that come with no costs or obligations, so there is no risk of seeking out legal advice when in doubt.

What Are the Types of Personal Injury Lawsuits in Florida?

A personal injury lawsuit happens when there is a legal dispute between two parties degrading an accident where one or both of the parties suffered through injuries. Insurance companies are also involved to resolve the insurance bills and medical coverage.

Damages that are awarded from the personal injury lawsuit usually fall into three categories:

  • Compensatory damages
  • Punitive damages
  • General damages

There are two categories for personal injury lawsuits including:

  • Formal Lawsuit: This route includes a civil complaint against another person, business, or corporation. It involves hiring a personal injury attorney to take the claim to civil court and represent your interests.
  • Informal Settlement: This is the most common route and involves an informal settlement that is drafted by the two parties, their insurance companies, and their attorneys. It consists of negotiations that are concluded with a written agreement.

When Should I File a Personal Injury Claim?

In Florida, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is four (4) years. If you attempt to file your claim more than four years after the date of your accident—or, in some cases, four years from the date you discovered you sustained an injury or illness—the courts will likely throw out your case and refuse to hear it.

However, the sooner you file a claim the better. This is because you will need to present solid evidence backing up your claim in order to prove your case. The sooner you and your lawyer can start investigating the claim, the easier it will be to collect viable evidence.

Our Clearwater personal injury attorney is here to help you receive the compensation you deserve! To schedule your free, no-obligation consultation, contact Idrizi Law Group now.

What is the Average Payout for Personal Injury?

There is no average settlement amount. Each personal injury case must take numerous factors into account, and all of these are dependent on the specific facts of your case.

Factors that can impact your settlement amount include:

  • The extent of property damage involved
  • The severity of the injuries suffered
  • How much time you had to take off work for recovery
  • The total value of your accident-related medical expenses
  • The amount of pain and suffering endured
  • Whether your accident was caused by an individual or company
  • The assets possessed by the person or entity who caused your accident
  • Whether your accident was caused by a simple mistake or gross negligence
  • 275,000 No Witnesses No Property Damage

    Even after all the witnesses denied seeing a collision between the defendant’s and our client’s vehicles causing our client to drive into oncoming traffic and investigative pictures depicting no damage to the defendant’s vehicle whatsoever, Idrizi Law Group fought hard to recover policy limits amounting to $275,000.00 for our client.

  • $250,000 Serious Injuries

    In May 2018 we recovered the bodily injury policy limits of $200,000 and the underinsured policy limits of $50,000 for both the driver and passenger of the crashed vehicle.

  • $200,000 Hit & Run Victim

    Client was using the Clearwater Beach roundabout when a distracted driver collided with him and left the scene of the accident.

  • $161,000 Serious Injuries

    In October of 2016, our clients were involved in a motor vehicle accident that results in spinal injuries to the driver.

  • $150,000 DUI Victim

    Due to the velocity of the at-fault party’s vehicle, the victim’s car was forced to collide with the other vehicles stopped in front of her. The impact our client suffered caused injuries that required significant treatment for recovery.

What Damages Can I Receive in a Florida Personal Injury Case?

If you file a personal injury claim in Florida, you will likely be able to claim at least some of the following damages:

  • Medical expenses: Any medical expense related to your accident, now and into the future, should be covered. This includes medication, hospitalization, surgeries, physical therapy, counseling, necessary quality of life changes, and more.
  • Lost wages: If you had to take time off work to recover—or, if you have suffered a permanent disability and can no longer work at all—you should be able to recover at least a portion of your lost wages.
  • Pain and suffering: There’s no standard monetary value you can apply to “pain and suffering,” so this can be difficult to calculate without experienced legal counsel to help.

Pain and suffering factors in any physical and emotional pain you suffered as a result of the accident. Examples include losing a loved one, losing the ability to function on your own, dealing with an extremely painful injury, enduring grueling physical therapy, and more.

  • Wrongful death: In the unfortunate event that family member was killed in an accident, the surviving family members can claim compensation for funeral and burial expenses as well as for the emotional impact of losing a loved one.
  • Punitive damages: Punitive damages are only awarded in rare cases in which your accident was caused by a person or company committing a crime or other serious offense. Punitive damages are common in cases involving DUIs or assault, for instance.
