The Francis Law Group

Orlando Personal Injury Lawyer

People file personal injury cases after a number of different accidents, and a number of different damages are recoverable in these cases, from compensation for medical expenses to compensation for pain and suffering. Whatever your case, Florida personal injury law allows you to take legal action if another has harmed you because of his or her negligence, recklessness or intentional act.

The Francis Law Group helps you take appropriate legal action and get the compensation you deserve. Call 888-327-2745 to speak with us and set up your free consultation with an Orlando personal injury lawyer to review your case.

"When I called sometimes about my case, the firm and Mr. Francis's staff, like Cheyla, always returned my calls and took their time to hear me, and patient to work with me." --Gilbert Calice

What is a personal injury claim?

A personal injury claim for damages is a claim filed with an insurance company or in civil court against a person who caused an accident and resultant injury. Below are some types of accidents that might warrant filing a personal injury claim in Orlando.

  • Automobile accidents 
  • Bus accidents 
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Tractor-trailer accidents 
  • Pedestrian accidents 
  • Bicycle accidents 
  • Dog bites and animal attacks 
  • Premises liability cases (like a slip and fall) 
  • Medical malpractice 
  • Wrongful death 

Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Florida

Florida is a no-fault car insurance state, and all drivers are required to carry personal injury protection (PIP) of at least $10,000. In a no-fault state, a person’s car insurance company is responsible for paying his or her damages, regardless of who is at fault in the accident. To recover PIP benefits, you must see a doctor within 14 days.

You also may be able to file a liability claim or lawsuit if another driver caused the wreck. Further, if you were in another type of accident – like one of the many listed above – then you can pursue a liability claim or lawsuit if another party is to blame for your injuries and damages.

This is when having a personal injury attorney can be beneficial – your lawyer can help you identify the proper legal avenues available and follow the proper protocol to ensure you file correctly and pursue fair damages.

"After three years with another lawyer, I was waiting for this case to be resolved. I changed to Mr. Francis in December 2011 and my case resolved in less than half of the time than the other lawyer." --Eva Ruiz

Our Florida Personal Injury Law Firm Can Help You Get the Damages You Deserve

You are entitled to pursue compensation for the damages suffered as a result of your injury. This means you must consider both current and future medical care you received, any lost wages or expected loss of earning capacity related to the accident, other out-of-pocket expenses, and pain and suffering or other noneconomic damages.

"The team worked steadfastly and helped me throughout the entire process. A masterful job was performed in the final negotiation." --Malcom Alston

While Florida personal injury law allows you the opportunity to recover these damages, you must demonstrate that you've suffered them and that the other party is liable for paying them. The Francis Law Group helps you provide evidence of not only your damages, but also the other party's fault.

Good evidence is vital in Florida because any degree of fault the insurance company or a judge or jury assigns to you will reduce your damage recovery. So if you're deemed 10 percent at fault and have $20,000 in damages, you'd receive $18,000, i.e., $20,000 minus 10 percent is $18,000.

The Francis Law Group Can Help – Call Us Now!

The Florida statute of limitations for personal injury claims is four years from the date of the accident and injury. While this might seem like plenty of time, many continue to delay taking action, and before they know it, time is up!
