Personal Injury Cases We Handle

When we discuss personal injury cases, we are talking about a variety of different types of accidents and injuries that all fall under the umbrella term of “personal injury.” It covers a lot of incidents and while they are all considered personal injury, it is important that you hire an attorney who knows how to handle that particular type of case. We have experience handling the following types of personal injury cases:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Boat accidents
  • Negligent security
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Medical malpractice
  • Bud accidents
  • Slip and falls
  • Medical device injury
  • Spinal cord injury

Each type of case comes with its own challenges and obstacles that need to be handled successfully and that your attorney must be able to fully understand. You don’t want to hire someone who simply dabbles in personal injury to handle your case. You also don’t want to hire somebody who handles only car accidents on a negligent security claim, for example. It’s important when you were looking for personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida that you know they have a track record of success and that they are willing to utilize their resources and energy to fight tirelessly to give you results that are fair.

Getting Results You Deserve 

When you are pursuing justice for your case, you are doing so in the form of financial justice. You will be seeking financial compensation for your damages and injuries that happened because of someone acting negligently. You procure this reward from the insurance company who represents the liable party. The liable party is the person directly responsible for your harm.

The job of your personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida is to tirelessly fight against the insurance company to ensure that the award that you end up with is going to be as full as it possibly can be. We look through your case and investigate your damages to come up with a fair reward for you and we also make sure we are tackling all potential liable parties because sometimes there are multiple people.

When we determine your compensation award, it is going to be based on the damages and injuries that have negatively impacted your life since being involved in your accident or incident. There are two types of damages for which we will fight to get compensation: economic and non-economic damages.

Your economic damages are all of the ways in which you have lost money because of your accident or incident. If you’ve had to pay an astronomical amount of medical bills, this will be considered an economic damage. If you’ve lost money because you didn’t get to go back to work after your injury, this is also an economic damage that we will fight to recover for you. We calculate all of these damages and add it into your award.

We will also fight for your non-economic damages, which include your pain and suffering, as well as loss of life quality. An example of this includes experiencing a loss of enjoyment in the daily activities that you used to perform before you got injured.

Please understand that we won’t know what your compensation award will be before we get started with your case. We won’t be able to tell you during our first meeting with you what you should expect in your compensation. It’s nearly impossible to determine what you should be getting without a thorough investigation of your case and without a clear understanding of your medical recovery. We need to know how well you are expected to recover and how quickly that will take. That will tell us how much money it’s going to cost you and how much of your life is happiness it will cost you.

We advise against hiring attorneys who promise you a dollar amount before they do any sort of research or investigation on your case. Our personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida will fight for you to get every penny that you deserve. We just might not know exactly how much that is until we know how soon you will recover.

Things to Do Immediately

There’s a lot that you likely don’t know about personal injury cases if you’ve never had to deal with this before. According to Florida State law, you are going to be held to the statute of limitation. This is a legal deadline that you must meet in order to get the compensation that you deserve. Our Cape Coral personal injury attorneys can help you get everything together in the proper timeline. We don’t want you to miss out on getting the results you deserve because you waited too long to act.

The statute of limitations in Cape Coral for most personal injury cases is four years. That can seem like a very long time but when something is not on your to-do list of priorities, four years can disappear quickly. Do not hesitate to call and set up a free consultation with us.

There are several things that you need to do right away following your accident or incident. The top priority above anything else is getting the medical care that you need. In some instances, you will be too injured to even take yourself to the emergency room, so we encourage you to get on the ambulance. If you are able to stay on the scene to collect evidence, you should because that is very important for the success of our case. However, your number one priority should be your health.

Delaying getting the medical care that you need could put the insurance company on the offense. They could see that you didn’t get the treatment you needed right away and claim one of two things: they can say that you lied about how badly you were hurt or they can say that you lied about where you got your injuries. If they go with the claim that you aren’t as hurt as you say you are, then the compensation they are willing to give you will reduce. If they try to say that maybe you got your injury somewhere else, then you will receive zero compensation from them. That is why it is so very important to get medical treatment right away.

Biggest Issue You May Face 

When we take on any case, we can expect there to be challenges and obstacles. It is something that we come to expect because the insurance companies working against us have become pretty predictable. In order for you to have a more successful case, please take note of these potential issues.

You are in no way legally obligated to speak with the liable party’s insurance company about the incident or the accident. They are going to try to talk to you and try to get a statement from you that they will record. During the statement, they’re going to ask you some questions in the hopes that you’ll say something that will allow them to reduce your compensation or allow them to throw out your case. Even innocent questions can turn malicious; for example, if they ask how you are and you respond that you are fine, even if you mean that in a polite way just as a greeting, they can say that you are ok after your accident and they don’t need to give you compensation because you are fine as you said in a statement.

In Florida, if you get blamed for a part of the accident, then your reward will be reduced by the insurance company. They are well aware of the laws that let them do that just as we are aware that they will try so hard to accomplish that for their own potential gain. They want to save themselves money, but your personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida want to ensure that justice is served.

Car Accident Attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida

If you have suffered severe injuries after being involved in a car accident that you did not cause, you may be feeling worried or scared about your future. Perhaps you have medical bills piling up or you may be unable to work for quite some time and don’t know how you are going to support yourself. Our personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida know exactly how to fight to get you the justice that you deserve. Call us right away to set up a free, initial consultation. We want to give you the justice that you deserve.

How These Cases Work

A basic breakdown of how most car accident cases work is as follows:

After your accident, hopefully you can collect some evidence for your personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida to use later in your case. That evidence can include witness contact info, photos and videos of the scene and the vehicles involved.

After you get medical care, you will reach out to an attorney to start your case. You and your attorney are going to file a claim against the person who was directly responsible for causing the accident. Your attorney is going to determine who the liable party was and if there was more than one based on their investigation of the accident.

When we pursue justice for our clients, it is going to be in the form of financial compensation. The person who caused the car accident will not be fulfilling the award out of their own pocket. Their insurance company is in charge of doing that for them. They will be the ones who give you the award.

If we cannot come up with an amount that is full and fair through negotiations with the insurance company, we are going to take the case to trial to try and get you justice.

What to Do Right After the Accident

When you are involved in a car accident and you suspect that you have an injury, you need to get yourself in front of a doctor immediately. Most people are going to have adrenaline rushing through their body, which can mask some pain and give you a false sense that you are okay, but you need to take extra care after an accident. Even minor accidents can cause serious injury.

Even if you think you are completely fine, you should always get to the emergency room or urgent care right away after your accident so that you do not end up having a minor injury become serious. The last thing you want is to make your pain and suffering go on for longer or get worse.

If you were to delay getting medical care, the insurance company certainly will take this opportunity to claim that you either lied about the severity of your injuries or you lied about where the injuries came from. They would use your delay in medical treatment to prove these theories and depending on which, your compensation award would either be reduced or your case thrown out. Having less severe injuries means you would get a smaller award and if you lied about the cause of your injuries, they are no longer responsible for your compensation.

You also need to make sure that you get in touch with personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida immediately. You are going to be held to a legal deadline— the statute of limitations. You have four years from the date of your accident to bring your claim. Of course, that seems like such a long time, but when you are focused on other aspects of your life and are not prioritizing reaching out to an attorney, then you can easily let time get away from you.

Also, car accident cases rely on evidence. If you did not collect any yourself and you waited a year and a half to talk to an attorney, there may be little to no evidence left. In the meantime, you could make serious mistakes that might ruin your chance at justice.

We do not want you to have to miss out on getting justice simply because you did not set up a free consultation right away.

The One Thing You Do Not Want to Do

As mentioned, if you haven’t met with an attorney, there are things you likely do not know that could end up hurting you. The biggest mistake we see people make is giving a statement to the insurance company. As you may have gathered, they are often greedy and do not want to give you the money you deserve because it can get expensive for them. When you are hurt by someone else, they will reach out to you and ask you to give them a recorded statement. Do not give them one.

They have trained their representatives to ask you questions in a way that would guide you to answer the way they want you to. They can twist your words, back you into a corner, then use what you say against you. If you even simply answered their greeting of, “Hey, how are you?” even a polite response such as, “I’m good. How are you?” could be twisted. To you, it might mean nothing aside from a standard greeting, but to them, they can use it to mean you were fine and free of pain.

You are not legally obligated to talk to the insurance company and we certainly hope you do not offer them anything that they can use against you. Instead, let your personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida handle communication with the insurance.

The Compensation You Deserve

Firstly, when you file a claim, you are going to be asking for compensation to cover your economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages can be defined as monetary losses, such as medical bills and lost wages. Non-economic damages are things like your pain and suffering.

It should be noted that not everyone who is injured in a car accident is going to be able to file a claim for compensation. Florida is a no-fault state, which means that you are going to have to turn to your own personal injury protection on your car insurance to cover the damages suffered in an accident, unless you fall into a certain category that will allow you to sue. Our personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida are going to help you figure out if you have grounds to sue.

Assuming you do have grounds to file a claim, when you go through the negotiations with the insurance company, you are going to notice that they will try very hard to reduce your compensation. Both our attorneys and the insurance companies are aware that in Florida, if the plaintiff (the injured person filing the claim) shares blame for the accident, then they can end up with a reduced compensation award.

We do not want you to end up with a reduced award, but the insurance compensation does. Because Florida is a state that follows pure comparative negligence, if you get blamed for a percentage of the accident, you will have a reduced compensation award.

An example of this would be if you were at a stop sign, and you thought you looked both ways before turning, but someone came flying out of nowhere and hit you in the intersection. You might share some fault if you, for example, if you did not make a complete stop at the sign before you proceeded into the intersection.

Let’s say that the insurance company found out that your stop was not perfect. They can use this information as grounds to say that the accident may have been avoided or have been less severe had you done something differently (even if they admit that their insured was mostly at fault). In a case like this, maybe they say you were 20% at fault for the accident. If you were given $10,000 in compensation, the award would be reduced to $8,000 to account for the role you played in causing the accident.

Our attorneys are going to fight hard to make sure that you are not penalized unfairly by the insurance company and that your results are as full as we can possibly make it. You don’t need to worry about us trying to get your case done and over with like some law firms who just want to run your case through the mill. We care about each and every one of our clients. Your success is as important to us as our own family’s case would be to us.

Getting the Results You Deserve

Please understand that, although we are seeking financial compensation for you and we have handled a lot of cases like yours before, it’s going to be nearly impossible to know exactly how much compensation you will get when you first meet with us. We need some time to get to know your case first.

If you’ve ever met with an attorney who tells you that they can promise you a certain compensation award before they have done any thorough investigation on your case, that’s not the attorney you want to hire. Our personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida understand that if we are going to find out what your case value is, we need to understand exactly how much it impacted your life and how it will continue to impact your life as you recover and become whole again from your injuries. This is not something that we find out in a couple of days. We need to get to know what your maximum medical recovery is going to look like.

The term maximum medical recovery has to do with how well you are supposed to get according to your doctors, how long that will take you to get there, and how much this is going to cost you in medical bills and enjoyment of life. Some doctors will tell you that your current state of recovery is as good as you’re going to get. Sometimes, it’s not where you were before. If you have permanent injuries from your truck accident, it’s important for us to know this. We might not be able to determine that for quite some time, but having this information is essential to ensuring your results are as full as they possibly can be. We can’t go back later on and ask for more compensation because we realize that you’re not going to return to full health and you deserve more.

Everyone’s compensation awards are going to be broken down based on two types of damages. The first type of damage that we are going to calculate for your case value are your economic damages. Your economic damages include your financial loss, which could be your medical bills or your lost wages if you had to miss out on time at work in order to recover from your injuries. The second type of damage is called non-economic damages. These have to do with the things that have affected your quality of life, such as pain and suffering. We fight for every penny.

Why You Should Hire an Attorney

When you are thinking about hiring personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida, there are some things that you need to know. First, we understand that there is a common misconception that attorneys are expensive. When you hire an attorney for a personal injury case such as a truck accident, you are not going to be paying them anything upfront or out of pocket to access their services. Personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, which means that, unless they win your case, they don’t get paid. A small portion of your winnings will go to paying your attorney.

You are more likely to get a fair result when you have the help of personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida working on your case than if you were to try to do this alone because attorneys are going to be able to foresee challenges you might face. You would also have to become an expert in truck accident cases in order to represent yourself sufficiently and that is something that most people don’t have the time, energy, or resources to do. You are saving yourself a headache when you hire an attorney to handle your case.

Reach Out Right Away

The Cape Coral statute of limitations is four years. This means that you have four years until your legal deadline prevents you from bringing a case against the liable party for your accident. We understand that this might seem like a very long time for you and most people might agree that this is a huge timeline, but when you are involved in an accident, the natural priority is going to be your well-being and how you are going to live with these injuries that you have. It’s easy to let something like hiring an attorney slip from your mind if you aren’t actively concerned about it.

The worst thing that we could see is you missing out on getting the justice that you need because you didn’t call our personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida as soon as you could. Even if you waited several months to reach out to an attorney, you are risking your evidence going missing or being erased. For example, if there were local businesses around that had CCTV footage of the accident but they record over there tapes every month and you waited too long, you don’t get that evidence anymore. What’s more, if the truck company thought that you might file a claim, they could delete the information on the black box of the truck, which would make it very difficult for you to prove that the truck accident was their fault. Your witnesses will also forget important information about your case if you wait too long.

We can’t file a claim past your statute of limitation. We would have a very hard time creating a successful case without good evidence proving our claim that the liable party was directly responsible for your injuries. We urge you to call and set up a free consultation as soon as you can.

Things That Could Ruin Your Case

When you file against a liable party for any personal injury case, including truck accidents, you are going to be pursuing justice in the form of money damages. These money damages are going to come from the insurance company that represents the liable party. Both the insurance company and your personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida will know that your case is in a fragile state and any inadvertent mistakes you make can ruin your chance of success. The insurance company wants to save themselves money, so the mistakes you make will be appealing to them.

If you take the blame for the accident even partially, you could have a reduced reward. If the insurance company is able to pin the blame on you, you can have a reduced reward. Cape Coral

follows the pure comparative negligence laws, which allows them to reduce your compensation reward based on the amount of fault you bear for the accident. If, for example, you were blamed for 30% of the accident, you would be able to take home 70% of your compensation award. Pure comparative negligence does allow you to receive compensation even if you were mostly at fault for the accident, but your award will be reduced accordingly.

We strongly advise against giving the insurance company a recorded statement, as they can and will use your words against you to prove that you were partially or entirely at fault for the accident, thereby reducing what they give you for money damages or throwing away your case.

We hate to see people missing out on getting their justice because they made the simple mistake of talking to the liable party’s insurance company. We don’t want the insurance company to get anything that they can use against you, especially from your own mouth. You can let your attorneys handle the communication between you and the insurance company. Legally, they only need your contact information and the fact that you were involved in the accident to proceed with a case. They do not need a recorded statement from you. They will try to say that it helps them resolve the case quicker but that does not always mean fairly.

We do not tolerate the insurance companies doing this to you as this is a violation of your rights. When you have been wronged by a negligent party, you have a right to receive compensation for your damages and injuries. When people try to prevent you from getting these results, that’s a violation of your rights. We will fight tooth and nail for you to get what you deserve, even if it means we have to go to trial to get those results for you.

Our personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida are here to fight for people like you who have lost someone that they love because of another person’s negligence or carelessness.

Please call our office right away to set up a free consultation to get started on getting the results you and your family deserve.

What is Wrongful Death?

Wrongful death can be categorized as an accidental death that was caused by a person or a party behaving in a way that was careless or negligent. Cases involving wrongful death are civil lawsuits that are filed by surviving family members to receive wrongful death compensation for their damages.

You might be wondering after you’ve lost a loved one whether or not you should be filing a case. Of course, the easiest way to find out what your rights are is by talking to personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida about the details of your loved one’s death. Essentially, if you are able to prove that a liable party or parties were directly responsible for the incident or accident that your loved one was involved in and that had somebody acted differently your loved one would still be alive, then you are most likely eligible to receive wrongful death damages.

We hope that you reach out to us right away, as you are being held to a legal deadline and these cases can be very time-sensitive. We will help you put together all of the evidence supporting the claim that your loved one’s death was preventable had someone acted in a different way. A lot of these cases are because of a car accident or a construction accident, but truly any incident or accident that lead to your loved one’s death that could’ve been prevented has potential to be a wrongful death case.

Call our office for a free consultation to learn what your rights are.

Who Files the Case?

A lot of people who have lost a loved one in an avoidable accident reach out to us asking similar questions. They want to know who the person that filed the claim is going to be. Not just any person can be the plaintiff for this civil lawsuit. The law states that it has to be a particular person or else the lawsuit is not going to proceed. There is a kind of hierarchy to the people who are allowed to bring a wrongful death case. It goes as follows:

  • If the loved one was married, then their spouse will be the person who files the claim.
  • If they were not married but they did have children, then those children (if they are no longer minors) will be able to file the claim. If the children are minors, then a guardian can file the claim on their behalf.
  • If the loved one was not married and did not have children, then the parents can file the wrongful death claim.
  • If the parents are deceased, the next person in line to file the claim would be a sibling.

Every family situation is unique and what might work for one case might not work for yours. Let our personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida help you determine who the plaintiff for your case should be. Call to set up a free consultation right away to find out more.

Recovering Wrongful Death Damages

When you bring a case for wrongful death, you want justice. Justice that you received for a wrongful death case is going to be through the means of a financial award. We understand that you might want to see a criminal punishment for the person responsible for the death of your loved one but that’s not how these types of cases work. This is not going to be a homicide case that we are handling for you. This is going to be a wrongful death civil lawsuit. Civil lawsuits for wrongful death are typically for when there was not an intent to kill your loved one but their death was a result of someone’s actions.

If your loved one was indeed killed by somebody who intended for them to suffer death, then you should be speaking to the police and that should be a homicide case. If, however, you are here looking for a way to seek justice and make your family feel financially stable after suffering the loss of a loved one, we are here to help you. We will pursue the justice that you and your family deserve, as this loss has caused you pain and suffering

When you financially compensate someone for wrongful death, it gets broken down into categories. The first category that you would receive are the financial losses that are burdening your family based on the loss of your loved one. Here is what we will pursue in wrongful death damages:

  • Funeral and burial costs
  • The cost of the medical care that your loved one went through before they died related to the accident or incident
  • Any of the wages or benefits that this loved one would have provided to the family had they not met an untimely death

Any property damage related to the incident, e.g. a car damaged in a wrongful death that was due to a car accident

You will also receive money damages that are meant to help you move on from this incident and feel that you have been thoroughly compensated for all of the ways in which this untimely loss has affected you and your family. Here are some of the ways you might receive non-economic compensation for your wrongful death case:

  • The pain, suffering, and mental anguish that you and your family have had to go through because of this untimely death that’s left you to grieve the companion that you have lost
  • A loss of consortium or normal life
  • A loss of an important figure in your family’s life, as well as the role that they played in your home

We will work very hard to determine the case value for your unique situation. We make sure that we thoroughly investigate the case to understand how it has impacted your life and how we should be providing you with justice in terms of compensation. Our personal injury attorneys in Cape Coral, Florida understand the importance of this case for you and your family and we will fight through the challenges to bring you justice. Set up a free consultation with our attorneys today to get the help you need in getting justice.

Act Urgently

In Cape Coral, you have a statute of limitations which is going to limit the time in which you are eligible to file your wrongful death case. If you have lost a loved one from an accident, you have four years from the date of their death in which you can file your case for wrongful death against the person or party directly responsible for causing the incident or accident that led to them losing their life. If you try to file a claim after this timeline, you will be forbidden from receiving justice. We would hate for you to have to miss out on your one chance of getting justice because you didn’t reach out to us soon enough. Do not delay. Call us today.
