In one of our recent articles called “Personal injury law and negligence explained” we define personal injury as “an injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property”. The personal injury that our personal injury attorney in Broward County deals with is more specific than that. Our attorney defends people who have suffered physical or mental harm as a result of an action of some entity, e.g. company, or an individual.
Furthermore, personal injury lawyers mostly work with cases where the doctrine of negligence takes place. This means that the plaintiff (defendant, or injured person) must prove that a reasonably prudent defendant could have avoided the accident if she/he had acted differently in the particular situation. And as you can imagine, this is difficult to do!
Proving that a person normally would have acted differently takes a lot of time, effort, expertise in the field and intense knowledge of the legal requirements. Being able to prove negligence requires many steps that the unspecialised plaintiff might not even be aware of.
Therefore, to make your compensation claim run more smoothly with more ease and better results, you must be supported by a personal injury lawyer. Below we share with you a list of 3 reasons why reaching out to a personal injury attorney will be beneficial for you.
Florida law favors accident victims
There are two ways in which Florida negligence law is plaintiff-friendly, in regards to car accidents.
- Florida uses “comparative fault” in negligence cases. This means that the plaintiff who is partially at fault can still get compensation – not as much as if they weren’t at fault at all. This is an improvement on the previous method!
- Florida law applies the “joint and several liability”, meaning that in the cases where more than one person was at fault they share the compensation. Therefore, the plaintiff is more likely to receive the full amount of recovery.
In order to fully exercise your rights and ensure the state laws are properly executed, reach out to our Broward County personal injury attorney. He will guide you through the process and take away the stress associated with the legalities of your car accident.

3. Better chance of securing full and fair compensation
It is incredibly difficult to defend yourself in court without the support of an experienced professional. Experience is key because not only does the plaintiff (the injured person) needs to know the law, but also how and when to exercise it! If you are filing a suit against an intrinsically powerful entity, like a government agency, it would be almost impossible to reach success without a lawyer. Our Broward County personal injury attorney has the required attitude and commitment to get you the results that you deserve.
