Don’t Wait to File a Claim!
According to the Florida Statutes Annotated section 95.11(3), the statute
of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of Florida is four
years. This means you have four years from the date of your accident to
file a claim or you may lose your right to compensation. Florida does
recognize some exceptions to this four-year law, an attorney from our
firm can let you know if you qualify for any of these exceptions!
Damages and Your Case
There are three types of damages available in a personal injury case, economic,
non-economic and punitive damages. The first two, also called special
and general damages, can be grouped together under the umbrella of “compensatory
damages.” Compensatory damages simply means that the main purpose
of these damages is to compensate the injured party for their losses.
These losses can include many things both quantifiable and intangible such as:
- Past and future medical expenses
- The inability to work
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
The main purpose of punitive damages, on the other hand, is not to compensate
the injured party for anything but instead its acts as a punishment against
the negligent party. Punitive damages are typically very severe and as
such, they not often awarded.
