Most personal injury lawsuits cite negligence as the cause of action. Negligence is the failure to behave how another reasonably prudent individual should behave in the same or similar circumstance. A Tampa personal injury lawyer must establish these four elements of negligence to win a personal injury claim:
The first question you must answer is, did the other party owe the injured party a legal duty of care? Sometimes the nature of the relationship between the two parties creates a legal duty. Such as a doctor who owes a patient a legal duty to provide them with skilled medical care. Or the other party might owe the injured party a legal duty to act with reasonable care in a specific situation—for example, a driver should operate their motor vehicle safely using a certain level of due care.
If one party owed the injured party a duty of care, the next question is—did that party violate or breach their duty of care? Someone breaches a duty by doing (or not doing) something that a “reasonably prudent person” should do in a similar situation. The term “reasonably prudent person” means how the average person should responsibly act under certain circumstances. For instance, an average person should stop at a stop sign or keep their dog on a leash in public.
The next step is to prove that the other party’s negligence caused the injured party’s injury. Their negligence must connect to the injury somehow. Otherwise, the other party won’t be liable for their injuries.
Suppose a driver was negligently texting and driving. They faced blame for an unrelated fender bender that happened just across the street, all because they were negligent. In that case, it is not fair to blame the negligent driver for the damages arising from the other accident.
Another part of the causation element looks at whether the at-fault party should have reasonably foreseen that their actions or inactions might cause an injury. This rarely happens—almost always, someone can prevent an accident.
The final element of a negligence claim is “damages.” This element requires that the judge or jury compensate the injured party for their injury. Compensation is typically money for expenses such as medical care, property repair, and pain and suffering.
Depending on the case, other compensable damages might include:
If our Tampa personal injury attorneys believe they can prove all this in your claim, you could recover compensation without even going to court.
Florida is a risky state for drivers, passengers, and everyone who shares the road with them. According to the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Department, Hillsborough County reported over 24,000 motor vehicle accidents in 2020. These crashes caused 16,450 injuries and 214 total fatalities. In 2021, there were nearly 30,000 crashes resulting in 18,685 injuries and 263 deaths.
Common types of accidents in tampa:
Auto accidents can lead to personal injuries claims if a negligent party caused the accident.
You can hold drivers liable for their negligence if they drove:
However, drivers aren’t the only parties whose negligence can lead to accidents. You can also hold employers such as trucking companies or delivery companies liable for causing accidents.
Unfortunately, liability after a car crash or motor vehicle accident isn’t always clear. If multiple parties caused your injuries, you can receive compensation from more than one source. These are two excellent reasons to reach out to an experienced Tampa injury lawyer for help if you suffered injuries in a car accident.
Personal injury claims aren’t strictly limited to car crashes, motorcycle wrecks, bicycle or pedestrian accidents, or semi-truck or bus crashes. Anytime you sustain an injury that another party could reasonably have prevented, you might have a valid personal injury claim.
Other common personal injury claims include:
Legal filing deadlines are generally known as a “statute of limitations.” Florida’s personal injury statute of limitations is four years from the date of the injury. As such, after suffering a personal injury, you have four years to file a legal claim. If you miss this crucial deadline, you can still file a personal injury claim. However, it’s almost certain that the other party will request that the court dismiss your case due to the expired statute of limitations.
In that case, the court will have no other option but to grant their request, leaving you with no further opportunities to pursue financial recovery for your personal injury damages. To avoid missing this deadline, contact Boohoff Law’s Tampa personal injury attorneys as soon as possible after you sustain an injury.
The law does allow some exceptions to the personal injury statute of limitations.
If you think one of these exceptions might apply to your claim, bring it to the attention of our Tampa personal injury lawyers right away.
