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

    "You really took years of stress off my shoulder and I can finally have clarity in my mind."
    Over the past month or so I had made a call to the Law offices of Jason Porter because I needed to resolve an issue that occurred over 7 years ago. Once I explained the situation the secretary sent me directly to Jonathan Thacher. All I can say is that Thacher did an amazing job handling my case and I am extremely happy right now. I no longer have to worry about that problem ever again thanks to Thacher. The work was effective and everything went through perfectly. Thank you so much man you really took years of stress off my shoulder and I can finally have clarity in my mind.

    "Thanks for everything!"
    I had contacted Mr. Porter’s office after being in a car accident and having no success on my own with the insurance adjusters. Mr. Porter and his entire staff were all very engaged, expedient and supportive while working on my case. Any questions that I had, I could make a phone call and Hildy or Dani would be on the other end making things make sense to me. Ultimately, they delivered a great outcome that I was happy with. It was a huge weight off my shoulders to have the knowledge and support of Mr. Porter and his staff while navigating through the stress of everything that must be handled after a car accident. In the unfortunate event that I find myself in another similar situation, I won’t hesitate to pick up the phone and give them a call back! Thanks for everything!

    "He is a seasoned professional that is respected within the law community."

    I first met Jason Porter in 2003, when our children attended a Christian Preschool together. I saw what he did within our community. He helped many of the families from the preschool over the years so when it came time that my family needed a lawyer I chose him. Jason has helped my family and several of my personal friends, all with positive outcomes. He is a seasoned professional that is respected within the law community. You will be treated with the utmost respect and compassion. I don't know another lawyer of his caliber that offers free consultations and you speak to him personally. Pick Porter.

    "I would refer anyone to this firm"
    It always baffled me how much both Jason and Gary knew about the intricacies of my case at any given time. These guys work for, and show up to court for, their CLIENTS - in other words, they're not cutting a bunch of deals to clear dockets. I will never go anywhere else for legal advice - these guys are the real deal.
