When Does an Injury Qualify for a Settlement in Florida?
It is shocking how many accident survivors are hesitant to file a claim. Often, the reason for holding back is not knowing whether their injury really warrants legal action. For this reason, we have gone into further detail below about when an accident or injury may qualify for a Florida personal injury settlement.
Read on to learn more about some of the most common types of injuries in Florida personal injury lawsuits and the main way you’ll know legal action is appropriate.
Common Types of Injuries in Personal Injury Lawsuits
The injury itself is not what is going to tell you that you should file a lawsuit. However, that doesn’t mean that certain types of injuries are not common occurrences in Florida personal injury claims. It is more common than you might think for accident survivors to endure the following types of injuries and to go after compensation for them:
- Traumatic brain damage
- Loss of limbs
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Third-degree burns
- Organ failure
- Broken bones
- Back injuries
The Extent of Your Suffering
These previously mentioned types of injuries may be frequently seen in personal injury lawsuits, but even if you suffered a different injury, you could be entitled to financial compensation. This is because the injury itself is not what is going to determine whether you have a case.
How impactful your injuries have been on your life is what matters. If you have suffered tremendous physical or emotional trauma as a result of the accident and someone else was to blame, it may be worthwhile to discuss your case with an injury attorney.
