    Personal
    Injury
    Basics



    • For our purposes, a personal injury refers to any physical harm that comes to you as the consequence of someone else’s actions or negligence.
    • A driver who breaks the traffic laws without good reason and hurts someone may be found to have caused that injury through negligence.
    • A manufacturer may be found liable for your injury if you use one of its products in the intended manner and get hurt as a result. A lawyer would attempt to prove the product was designed in a hazardous way.

    Court Case

    If the matter is taken to court, you become the plaintiff in the personal injury case, while the person or group that caused your injury becomes the defendant. These cases are civil rather than criminal (hit-and-run instances are usually prosecuted as criminal).

    Restitution

    Most of the time, defendants pay settlements to plaintiffs to avoid going to trial. The Lawfather will work to get you the restitution that is owed to you, even if it means going to court.

    1. Car Accidents

    Automobile crashes are among the most common causes of personal injuries. In the mid-2010s, reported car crashes in the United States numbered between 5.6 million and 6.2 million a year. Because vehicle accidents, unfortunately, occur so frequently, it will probably be valuable to you to review some general tips for handling your affairs after being injured in a crash that wasn’t your fault. Don’t let a vehicle accident in Town ‘N’ Country, Florida, take away your dignity.


    Remember these suggestions if you are ever hurt in a car crash


    Image
    Call 911 immediately, if you can. Tell the dispatcher that you are hurt so an ambulance comes right away.
    Image
    File an accident report with police officers. This way, you have a paper record of the incident, including the fact that you were injured.
    Image
    See a doctor for your injuries. Winning compensation for your personal injury will rely on the results of a medical report confirming you have been hurt.

    Report the accident to your insurance provider, which, depending on what state you live in, will work with the other driver’s insurance company to ensure that it, rather than you, covers the damages to your vehicle.


    No-Fault States

    It is important to note that Florida is what is called a “no-fault” state when it comes to auto insurance. The no-fault rule means that each driver involved in a vehicle accident, regardless of who caused it, seeks compensation for their damages from their own insurer, rather than from the other driver’s. No-fault insurance policies pay for damages to vehicles and for the insured person’s medical bills (up to fixed thresholds that you select when buying insurance).

    However, certain extreme types of losses may warrant monetary recovery in court, even in no-fault states. Examples include death and permanent disability resulting from an injury caused by someone else. In these cases, the injured party (or the surviving estate representatives) may be able to sue the at-fault party for damages.

    We would add one more step for residents of the Tampa Bay area of Florida to call the Lawfather in Tampa, Florida, at 855-LAWFATHER. Our offices, centrally located at Kennedy Blvd and Howard Ave, are only a short drive away from many surrounding areas of the state.

    2. Wrongful Death

    A personal injury case can also be made when a wrongful death has occurred due to a party’s direct action or negligence. Family members of a murder victim may bring wrongful death charges against the murderer. The family of an individual who dies as a result of a doctor’s negligence in providing care can bring a wrongful death case against the doctor.

    Many U.S. states disagree on which individuals can be designated as “survivors” who can initiate wrongful death proceedings against accused parties. For example, nephews in some states might have trouble proving that they should collect wrongful death payments for their deceased aunt. A more generally accepted scenario throughout the states would be someone suing for the wrongful death of a spouse.

    Don’t hesitate if you are in this situation and need a personal injury lawyer in Brandon, Florida. See if you can seek justice for your loved one by calling the Lawfather at Franchi Law today.

    3. General Personal Injuries

    Of course, not all personal injuries involve car accidents or wrongful death. Anyone can get injured, anywhere, at any time, due to the intentional actions or negligence of another actor. Imagine slipping, falling, and getting seriously hurt in a grocery store because no one bothered to clean up a spill. Or suppose a group of people run by you in a park, accidentally jostle you, and cause you to fall and break a bone that ultimately causes you pain and other problems for months or years afterward.


    Personal Injury Damages Facts


    Image
    Plaintiffs in personal injury cases sometimes win general damages, or money awarded for physical pain and suffering, disfigurement, or lowered quality of life following the injury.
    Image
    Special damages are monetary awards for the injured party’s medical expenses, repairs to damaged property, and lost wages.
    Image
    Special damages are easier for courts to calculate, as they consist of payments for items with specific dollar values. General damages are more difficult to determine and will vary from case to case, since it is an almost entirely subjective matter to place a cash value on someone’s pain and suffering.

    In any event, make the Lawfather your first call for a personal injury attorney in Tampa. The amount of damages you can win often depends on the finesse of your lawyer, and the Lawfather has collectively won millions for his clients.

    Know your rights.

    We hope the main takeaway from this page is that you may have legal recourse if you are injured due to someone else’s direct actions or negligence.

    In Florida, your insurance provider can cover your property damages and medical bills up to certain amounts, but for particularly grievous injuries or death, an affected party may be able to bring a lawsuit against the at-fault party. This is where the Lawfather can help. An experienced personal injury lawyer in Tampa, Florida, William Franchi is your go-to legal advocate who will fight for the recovery that is rightfully yours.
