Protect Your Rights and Hold Negligent Defendants Accountable

When you’ve been injured by someone else’s careless conduct, you can file a negligence claim to seek compensation from whoever was responsible. Negligence is typically defined as the failure to be at least as careful as a reasonably prudent person in similar circumstances. The legal elements that an injured person must prove in most of these cases include:

  • Duty: the defendant owed the victim a duty of care;
  • Breach: the defendant breached the required standard of care;
  • Causation: the victim was hurt because of the defendant’s breach; and
  • Damages: actual economic or non-economic harm resulted from the injuries.

The state of Florida uses a comparative negligence rule when assigning a damage award to a victim who prevails in this type of lawsuit. Under this doctrine, an injured person who was partially at fault can expect his or her recovery to be reduced by the percentage of his or her responsibility for the accident. For example, a victim who was 15 percent at fault will not be able to get more than 85 percent of his or her total damages.

If your loved one suffered a tragic death because a person or company acted negligently, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. This type of claim is designed to allow someone to sue on behalf of a deceased person who would have been able to take legal action if he or she were still alive. Under Florida law, the personal representative of an estate can file a wrongful death action. If damages are recovered, certain surviving family members are eligible to receive a share of the compensation.

Types of damages sought by an accident victim in a negligence lawsuit may include many types of economic or non-economic harm, ranging from medical expenses and lost wages to subjective pain and suffering. Different forms of compensation may be available in wrongful death claims, such as funeral and burial expenses, lost earning capacity, and the loss of companionship, consortium, or support.
