Types of Personal Injury Claims

Any time you or a loved one is injured by someone else, it could be the basis of a personal injury lawsuit.

While there are dozens of types of personal injury claims, some are much more common than others. These include:

Car accident claims:
Personal injury claims can be filed on behalf of individuals that are seriously injured in car, truck, motorcycle and boat accidents. Causes of motor vehicle accidents include driver error, driving while intoxicated and defective auto parts.
Wrongful death:
When an individual is killed as a result of negligence, a wrongful death lawsuit may be filed on behalf of his or her surviving family members. These claims may cover final medical expenses, funeral costs, emotional turmoil and more.
Premises liability claims:
Premises liability claims can be filed on behalf of people that are injured because a building owner or manager failed to provide proper safety warnings, emergency exit information, or other necessary provisions to provide a safe environment for employees, customers, visitors and others. Slip-and-fall cases are a common example of premises liability claims.
Defective products:
When injuries are caused by faulty or unsafe products due to poorly conceived or manufactured products, and/or lack of directions or safety information, the injured person can seek compensation for their injuries. Defective product claims have been filed for all types of items, ranging from car seats and cribs to sports equipment and heavy machinery.

How to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit

If you believe you might have a personal injury case in Pensacola, it’s important to speak with an attorney sooner rather than later. Florida’s statute of limitations gives victims four years after the date of the incident to file a lawsuit. After deciding whether you’re going to move forward with the lawsuit, your attorney will likely ask for a few pieces of information from you.

First, they’ll want to know what was happening that caused the accident. For instance, if you suffered a slip-and-fall injury, they may want to know if the property owner knew the floor was wet, and if they’d taken proper precautions to fix the problem. This will help lay the groundwork of your lawsuit.

Second, they’ll want any documentation you have of monetary loss you’ve suffered due to the injury. As such, you’ll need to keep track of medical bills, pay stubs to show lost wages, and even proof of property damage, if it was associated to the incident. Be sure to document everything, even if you don’t think it’s significant.

Finally, your attorney may ask you about your pain levels and other issues associated with pain and suffering. It’s important to talk to your doctor to evaluate your condition as you continue the healing process, and document pain levels. You should also have your doctor document issues such as mental anguish. These could be important parts of your lawsuit.
