On a daily basis, people all around the state of Florida and throughout the entire country are getting into accidents. Some of these accidents involve motor vehicles, others are medical malpractice related, and still, others occur at the workplace.
No matter what the circumstances, accidents that are caused by a careless or negligent act resulting in the serious injury or death of another individual may qualify as a personal injury case.
Those accident victims who sustained serious, life-altering injuries due to another person’s carelessness or negligence deserve to fight for justice and financial compensation for their losses and damages. In Melbourne, FL, the personal injury lawyers that accident victims should turn to are those at Alpizar Law.
What Is a Personal Injury Lawyer?
A personal injury attorney is an individual who has dedicated their legal career to the fight for justice and compensation for those who have sustained severe injuries in accidents caused by another individual.
Personal injury attorneys also represent the families and estates of those who were killed in accidents so that the families can get a bit of relief from the expenses of their lost loved ones.
Those who specialize in personal injury law know that Florida law (or the regulations in the state in which they practice) is complicated when it comes to accidents and injury lawsuits. That is why is it important for victims to enlist the legal counsel and representation of an experienced personal injury attorney when they have ensured a serious accident.
What Does a Melbourne Personal Injury Attorney Do for Accident Victims?
When an accident victim reaches out to a knowledgeable personal injury attorney, that lawyer will begin to investigate the circumstances of the personal injury claim as soon as possible. Personal injury lawyers in Melbourne, Florida, will use all of the resources available to them to develop a strong case against the responsible party.
Whether it is combing through eyewitness statements or gathering evidence from the scene, talking to the police officers at the scene, or hiring expert witnesses to testify on behalf of their clients, injury attorneys handle everything that is needed to get the best possible outcomes for their clients.
The personal injury lawyer will also deal with the insurance company that will soon contact the accident victims hoping to settle the case for far less than their injuries are worth. Personal injury claims are complicated, and the insurance company does not want to pay out the maximum amount. With an experienced law firm on your side, you can rest assured that your lawyer will work diligently to get full compensation for your injuries and losses.
Who Can File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?
Any individual who was involved in a serious accident caused by another person’s negligence or recklessness and sustained severe, life-threatening injuries may be eligible to file a claim. There are certain requirements that must be met as well, including:
- Filing the claim within the state’s statute of limitations
- Injuries were sustained, physically and/or emotionally
- Injuries were directly caused by someone else’s negligence or reckless behavior
- Monetary losses were suffered as a result of the injuries
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earning income
- Pain and suffering
If these requirements are met and your personal injuries qualify, you may be eligible to file personal injury claims for your catastrophic injuries. Your attorney will discuss the circumstances of your accident (auto accident, motorcycle accidents, slip and fall accident, construction accident, medical malpractice, etc.), and he or she will determine your eligibility during your free consultation.
Do I Really Need Personal Injury Lawyers?
Short answer – yes! Your lawyer will be able to handle all of the details and most exhausting things that are inevitable following the accident. As a victim who suffered serious injuries, you need to be able to focus on the healing and recovery process. If you are forced to answer calls from the insurance company, listen to insurance disputes, or deal with mounting medical expenses, you will not be able to concentrate on recovering.
Your personal injury attorney takes all of that stress and anxiety off of your shoulders so that you can focus only on the healing process. It is not just your body that will need to heal but also your mental and emotional state. Our attorneys at Alpizar Law are dedicated to helping accident victims fight for justice and compensation while the clients are able to rest.
Likewise, in the situations of wrongful death, the attorney will play a vital role. The loss of a loved one will always be difficult, but if the loss is sudden and caused by a defendant’s negligence, that loss will be exponentially more difficult. Your attorney will fight for your family so that the stress of paying the remaining medical bills, funeral expenses, and other related expenses does not weigh heavily on your grieving family.
