Common Personal Injury Questions

Jacksonville Personal Injury Attorney

How much is my claim worth?
The amount you are entitled to in a settlement depends on several factors related to the severity of your accident. You deserve to be compensated for your medical bills, including emergency care and any type of rehabilitative treatment you will require, such as chiropractic adjustments or physical therapy. You can claim compensation for the income you have lost and will lose in the future, both during your recovery and in the event that the injury has made it impossible for you to continue earning the same amount. You can further claim damages for your pain and suffering, which can be difficult to compute.

I've already been offered a settlement. Should I take it?
An important thing to remember when dealing with insurance companies is that they are in business to make money, and are determined to avoid paying any more on a claim than necessary. They know that accident victims are usually anxious to receive a check, and they will typically make an offer in hopes of settling the claim quickly and cheaply. Your injuries may be worth significantly more than you have been offered, and if you accept the check or sign any type of waiver, you will likely give up your right to pursue the compensation you deserve. Speak with us first so that we can inform you of your rights.

How do I prove negligence?
Negligence in a personal injury lawsuit is determined according to the question of what a reasonable person would have done in the situation to avoid the accident. You must prove that the other party failed to take the actions which would be expected of a reasonable person to prevent your injuries. In a drunk-driving accident, a reasonable person would not drive after consuming alcohol, and in a car accident you may point to the fact that a reasonable driver would not use a cell phone for texting.
