What Should You Know About Injury Laws in Florida?
In Florida, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is four years, meaning that you have that time from the date of the incident to file a claim to seek compensation in court. The statute of limitations for claims filed against a state, city, or county government, however, is three years, so it is important to act immediately after an incident to seek compensation. In cases where you do not realize your injuries or disabilities for medical reasons until after the statute of limitations has expired, an extension may be granted so that you can still seek the compensation you need.
Personal injuries may result from:
- Product malfunctions
- Automobile accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Negligent actions of an individual or group
- Animal attacks
- Poorly maintained or unsafe workplace conditions
Under Florida law, two types of damages are awarded for personal injury cases. Punitive damages are designed to punish the defendant for negligent or harmful actions and are capped at $500,000 or three times the amount of compensatory damages. Non-economic damages, which mainly focus on pain and suffering, are also limited, and our team can work to represent you in court to seek the amount of compensation you deserve to heal from your injuries. Whether your pain is physical, emotional, or mental, our Jacksonville personal injury lawyers can seek the compensation you need, and we can represent you on a contingency fee basis.
