Jacksonville Beach Personal Injury Lawyer

An injury affects your work, relationships, hobbies, and general lifestyle. A significant injury can be devastating, taking a personal and financial toll. If that injury is caused by someone else’s negligence or misconduct, you deserve proper compensation for how your life is altered. The experienced personal injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. will fight for just remuneration.

Florida's Personal Injury Law

Personal injury falls under tort law. Torts can be caused by intentional wrongdoing, negligence, or strict liability (generally the manufacture of a defective product).

Florida recognizes “Comparative Negligence” if you had any responsibility in the accident. Comparative negligence is a tort rule that allocates damages when both parties are somewhat at fault. The degree in which you are deemed at fault affects how much damages you may be entitled.

Florida has a limit on punitive damages, depending on the case. Punitive damages are designed to discourage the defendant from repeating the actions that resulted in the injury. The limit you can be awarded is up to three times the amount of the compensatory damages, or $500,000, whichever is greater. The damage limits are higher in malpractice cases as well as cases where the defendant’s misconduct was designed for financial gain.

What Is My Personal Injury Case Worth?

Each personal injury case is different. Compensation depends on the victim’s individual circumstances. The accident’s severity and your ability to recover are important factors. Emergency care, surgeries, ongoing rehabilitation, lost wages, and the overall impact on your life affect personal injury compensation.

You should never lie or exaggerate your injuries. You should never downplay them either. Our goal is to recover the maximum amount for your case. We know your cases is often worth well more than offered by an individual, a business or insurance company. We will help you identify each loss and expense plus help you establish the value of your pain and suffering.

Documents that can help support your case include:

  • Work attendance reports
  • Repair estimates (to vehicle, home, etc.)
  • Medical bills
  • Medical records
  • Paycheck statements
  • Out-of-pocket expenses

    "They were very kind and extremely knowledgeable AND patient."
    Just wanted to say thank you to Attorney Carlucci and paralegal Ms. Rasulova. They were very kind and extremely knowledgeable AND patient. Hopefully I will not need an Attorney in the future, BUT if I do it will be Pick Porter.

    "He is our family attorney forever."
    There are times when you may need unforeseen legal assistance and your scared and don't have a clue if youre making the right choice. The decision is not an easy one when it's based on your family and life. You worry if they have your best interest at heart, if they know enough, if they know the right people and it's very emotional & confusing. Ten years ago my family was faced with the worst nightmare any mother could ever imagine & I prayed to God to make the right decision and I did. Meeting Jason Porter & his assistant Darlene C. (she's been with him longer than that), was the best in my life in my family's life. Jason doesn't have a big office turn around, in fact I have watched his office grow to the success it is today. His staff stays because they know they are with a terrific guy & great attorney. I can go on and on and mean every word from the bottom of my heart but the are truly no words to describe the great outcomes he has had for 2 of my sons on separate occasions. Unfortunately, we don't live in a society anymore where "boys will be boys". There are way too many laws and not enough of societal morality (due to a change of the times). Boys may get in trouble, they did get in trouble but with their unfortunate choices, my choice was the better in retaining Jason and his law firm. He is our family attorney forever.

    "I am grateful to have received such a terrific recommendation, and I'm happy to have met Mr. Watson."
    Mr. Richard Watson was recommended to me by a friend after I was in a car accident. With no prior experience with auto accidents in Florida, I had to learn about PIP, settling with the at-fault driver's insurance company, working with my own health insurance company, and the subrogation process. Mr. Watson was responsive and professional, he offered guidance that assured me I understood each step of the process and was diligent about communication at each step. I am grateful to have received such a terrific recommendation, and I'm happy to have met Mr. Watson. I highly recommend him and the Porter firm.
