When you’ve been injured, whether through medical negligence or an accident, you’ll need to bring your attorney certain documentation in order to build a case for your personal injury or medical malpractice lawsuit. 

Injuries that could lead to a lawsuit

Injuries can come from a wide variety of accidents or incidents, for example: vehicular accidents including autos, motorcycles, bicycles, off-road vehicles, and airplanes; pedestrian accidents; slip-and-fall or other premises accidents; dog bites or other animal attacks; and defective products. 

Florida’s no-fault laws require every driver to carry personal injury protection (PIP) offering up to $10,000 coverage for financial losses, such as medical bills or lost wages. In the case of an accident, your Florida PIP policy will be activated, even if you’re injured as a pedestrian. 

However, injuries from a pedestrian accident can often be serious and resulting expenses can be high. That is why you should consider taking additional steps to recover financial losses and reimbursement for pain and suffering. But who is liable? 

Determining negligence

When it comes to personal injury lawsuits and compensation, it is best to begin talking to a lawyer as soon as possible. Whether you’ve been in a car accident, injured at work or in a public place, or experienced medical malpractice or other injury or illness, your lawyer will need to collect evidence while it is available and question witnesses while things are fresh in their minds, then file before the statute of limitations deadline. 

Statutes of Limitations

Florida Statutes Section 95.11 governs how much time a person has to file a lawsuit. The limitations vary depending on the type of crime, injury, or incident. In cases of personal injury, limits range between two and four years, as listed below:
