Frequently Asked Questions About Florida Personal Injury Law

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Florida?

In accordance with Florida’s statute of limitations for personal injury cases, you generally have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the responsible party. However, there are certain exceptions and nuances to this rule, so it is always wise to consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after an accident to ensure you don’t miss any critical deadlines.

How much does it cost to hire a personal injury attorney at Holliday Karatinos Law Firm, PLLC?

At Holliday Karatinos Law Firm, PLLC, we primarily operate on a contingency-fee basis. This means you will not pay any up-front fees or expenses. Our payment comes as a percentage of the compensation we recover for you. In essence, if we don’t win your case, you don’t owe us anything.

What types of compensation am I eligible for in a personal injury claim?

In a personal injury claim, you may be eligible for various types of damages, including, but not limited to, medical bills and expenses (past and future), lost wages, diminished earning capacity, property damage, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life. The exact compensation you’re entitled to will depend on the specifics of your case. In general, a more serious injury will be eligible for more compensation.

How long does a personal injury case typically take?

The duration of a personal injury case can significantly vary based on the details of the case. Factors such as the severity of injuries, complexity of liability, willingness of the defense to negotiate, and more can affect the timeline. While some Florida personal injury cases may be resolved in a matter of months, other more complex cases may take years to reach a final resolution.

How does Holliday Karatinos Law Firm, PLLC, handle a personal injury case?

Our process starts by meticulously gathering and analyzing all relevant evidence, determining liability, and assessing the full extent of damages. We then strategize and employ effective negotiation tactics with the aim of securing a fair settlement from the insurance company. If a fair settlement can’t be reached, your Florida personal injury attorney is equipped and ready to advocate for your rights in court.

Would I need to go to court for a personal injury lawsuit?

While many personal injury claims are settled out of court, there are instances where going to court might be necessary to obtain fair compensation. This tends to occur when the responsible party or their insurer disputes liability or the amount of damages. At Holliday Karatinos Law Firm, PLLC, we’re readily prepared to represent our clients in court if necessary.

How can I protect my rights after a car accident?

First, always ensure you receive appropriate medical attention first. Then, if possible, gather any relevant evidence from the accident scene, such as photographs, witness statements, etc. Avoid discussing fault or apologizing for the accident, as it may be used against you later. Lastly, contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to ensure crucial steps are taken towards building your claim.

How is negligence proven in a personal injury case?

Proving negligence in a personal injury case typically involves establishing four key elements: duty, breach, causation, and damages. The responsible party must have had a duty of care to you, that duty must have been breached, the breach must have directly caused your injury, and you must have incurred damages as a result. Collating the evidence to convincingly establish these elements is a task best undertaken by an experienced personal injury attorney.
