Delray Beach Personal Injury

Personal injuries can be devastating, no matter when or how they happen. Beyond the sheer pain and suffering of an injury, accidents can also lead to substantial financial costs. A serious injury can result in costly medical bills and an extensive recovery time, if a full recovery is even possible. For many personal injury victims, the injury is so serious that working becomes difficult or impossible. As such, on top of expensive hospital bills and medical costs, a personal injury victim will also suffer financially due to lost wages. Many personal injuries in Florida occur because of another party’s negligent or careless behavior.

If you were injured and another party may be at fault, it is important to speak with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to learn more about your options for seeking compensation.

Statute of Limitations in Florida Personal Injury Cases

Every personal injury case will have a statute of limitations, which limits the amount of time you have to file a claim. Under Florida law, most personal injury lawsuits must be filed within four years from the date of the accident or injury. However, there are some exceptions, and it is important to discuss the specific details of your case with a personal injury attorney in Delray Beach.

Damages in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Most injury victims who file a personal injury case can be eligible to receive compensatory damages. There are two different kinds of compensatory damages: economic and non-economic damages. Both types of damages are intended to compensate a person for losses. However, economic damages compensate for direct financial losses (such as medical bills and lost wages) while non-economic damages compensate for more subjective, intangible losses (such as pain and suffering, or the loss of enjoyment of life).

In some particularly egregious cases, an injured person also may be able to seek punitive damages under Florida law. This type of damages award is intended to punish a defendant for particularly reckless or harmful behavior, and punitive damages are capped at a certain amount. Your personal injury lawyer can provide you with more information.
