Assert Your Rights Through a Negligence Lawsuit
If you are hurt in an accident, you can file a personal injury claim against the party responsible for your harm. To hold that party accountable, you often will use the legal theory of negligence.

This is defined as the failure to exercise the appropriate level of care in a given situation. The required level of care usually consists of what a reasonable person would do in similar circumstances. However, the standard is different in certain contexts, such as in medical malpractice. If your claim is based on negligence, you will need to prove each of the following elements:

  • Duty – The defendant must have had an obligation to meet a certain standard of care.
  • Breach – The defendant must have violated this duty of care through careless actions.
  • Causation – The defendant’s breach must have caused your injuries, which must have been reasonably foreseeable.
  • Damages – You must have incurred actual damages as a result of your injuries.

Some defendants will argue that the victim also acted carelessly. Even if this is true, Florida law allows a victim to recover at least some damages unless he or she bore complete responsibility for the accident. The state follows a pure comparative negligence standard. As such, if a victim’s carelessness contributed to his or her injuries, the resulting damage award will be reduced in proportion to his or her percentage of fault.

Compensation can cover both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages usually refer to objective forms of harm, such as lost wages, medical expenses, lost earning capacity, or damage to a vehicle. By contrast, non-economic damages cover more subjective types of harm, such as pain and suffering.

Seek Compensation After a Car Crash
Vehicle accidents are unfortunately a common occurrence on Florida roads, and often leave victims with extensive physical injuries and financial burdens. However, a knowledgeable attorney can help you apply the negligence standard described above to recover damages. State law requires all motorists to use care in operating their vehicles. Drivers must abide by traffic rules and regulations while behaving in a way that does not needlessly endanger the safety of others on the road. If a motorist does not meet this standard and causes an accident as a result, the victim may hold the motorist liable for damages.

Sometimes there may be more than one defendant who is responsible for your injuries. If you are hurt in a truck accident, for example, you may be able to sue both the driver and the truck company who hired the driver. The doctrine of vicarious liability attributes responsibility for an employee’s actions to his or her employer if the employee was acting in the scope and course of employment. Moreover, a truck company might be independently liable for engaging in negligent hiring practices or inadequately training its drivers. Your attorney can investigate your specific accident and ensure that the appropriate parties are held accountable for harming you.

Hold Careless Property Owners Accountable
Similarly, property owners in Florida have a duty to keep their premises safe for individuals lawfully on them. They must also repair or warn of any potential dangers and defects on the property. Property owners even owe a duty of care to certain trespassers, most notably children. If you or your child has been hurt on someone else’s property, such as a store, restaurant, or hotel, you should consider pursuing a premises liability lawsuit to seek compensation.
