Commonly Asked Personal Injury Questions
During free initial consultations at Walborsky Bradley & Fleming, PLLC, in Panama City, Pensacola, and Pace, clients considering pursuing a personal injury claim often ask similar questions. To help you understand the process, our lawyers answered the most commonly asked questions below.
Do I Have A Valid Claim?
Generally, you have a valid claim if the at-fault party owed you a duty and then breached that duty, resulting in your injury or damages. An experienced personal injury lawyer at our firm can review your injuries and the circumstances of the accident to determine if you have a valid claim.
What Is The Value Of My Claim?
The value of your personal injury claim depends on several factors, including the severity and permanent limitations of your injuries. For example, a claim for a construction site accident that resulted in permanent disability is worth more than an accident that caused minor property damage and a broken bone. To obtain maximum compensation, we work with medical and economic experts to assess the full extent of your losses.
What If I Was Partially At-Fault For The Accident?
Apportioning fault is one of the most challenging aspects of a personal injury claim. Florida’s comparative negligence standard limits an injury victim’s recovery by their amount of contributing negligence. For instance, if your actions are deemed to be 25 percent negligent, then you will only be awarded damages totaling 75 percent of your full monetary recovery.
What If The At-Fault Driver Is Uninsured/Underinsured?
If the at-fault driver does not have enough insurance to cover the expenses of your injury or does not have any coverage at all, you may be able to recover damages under the provisions of your own insurance policy.
