Pedestrian Accidents

If struck by a moving vehicle, pedestrians can suffer significant injuries from broken bones to brain injuries, paralysis, and even death. 

While your personal injury protection (PIP) can cover some of your medical bills or lost wages, you may be entitled to payment for other losses like pain and suffering. We’ll fight for maximum compensation whether you were hit due to a negligent driver or defective vehicle parts.

Bicycle Accidents

Cyclists have the same rights on the road as other motor vehicles. If you’re injured by a negligent driver, whether they fled the scene or not, you’ll want to collect as much evidence to support your case as possible.

Make sure to hold onto any photos, police reports, bicycle repair estimates, medical bills, physical therapy invoices, or employment records from the time of your accident. We can analyze your case and defend you if a negligent driver has injured you.

Slip and Fall Cases

Slips and falls can happen for a wide variety of reasons. You could trip or lose your balance because of a poorly installed railing or a cracked sidewalk. The risk of injury is especially high for elderly Floridians, as the repercussions from falling can be severe. 

Florida Premises Liability Law requires property or business owners to maintain a safe environment for anyone using their facilities. We can determine if you have the right to seek compensation if someone else’s actions contributed to your injury.

Ladder/Lift Accidents

Construction sites have a dangerous reputation when it comes to accidents for workers and visitors. Any ladders or lifts should be properly manufactured and maintained, with accurate training and safety equipment provided for their use.

If you’re injured as a result of another party’s negligence, you deserve to recover your losses. Maybe you’re working construction or a homeowner cleaning your gutters, either way, you could be eligible for compensation if you’ve fallen from a ladder or had a lift accident.

How Much is a Personal Injury Case Worth?

What sounds like a simple question is actually quite complex, as every personal injury case is different. The total of your claim should include any and all injury-related expenses. Maybe you had to miss work or get follow-up surgery years later. Or perhaps you’ve had to undergo physical therapy, take prescription medications, or have regular doctor’s appointments. 

Some damages should be accounted for that aren’t directly tied to finances, like pain and suffering or a lower quality of life. Even if they seem harder to quantify, you deserve compensation for those very real losses. Our personal injury lawyers will help uncover all the types of compensation you are entitled to.

How it Works: 3 Easy Steps

At Tighe P.A., we make it easy for you to get the help you need after an accident in just three steps.

What Are the Elements of Negligence in a Personal Injury Claim?

When you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you’ll need four elements to be present to file a claim: duty, breach of duty, causation, and damages.

Pedestrian Accidents

All personal injury cases begin with a duty that the defendant should be performing for your safety. That could mean a driver has a responsibility to drive safely according to the law. Or, it could mean that a business has a duty to prevent injury on their premises or when using their product.

Breach of Duty

To move forward with your personal injury claim, your lawyers will have to prove that there was a breach of duty that puts the defendant at fault and shows that they’re to blame. If the defendant drives through a stop sign without stopping, that’s a breach of duty.

Causation

A crucial part of an injury claim is proving that the defendant’s breach of duty is directly connected to any injuries you sustained. If a driver doesn’t stop at a stop sign, hits another driver who had the right of way, and that driver is injured, that’s proof that the defendant’s negligent driving caused the injuries.

Damages

Damages determine the compensation you deserve. You have to sustain an injury, whether physical, emotional, or financial, in order to file a personal injury claim. This injury must have resulted from the defendant’s breach of duty.

Personal Injury Statute of Limitations

If your injury is the result of negligence, you have four years to take legal action before reaching the statute of limitations in Florida. Civil injury cases that don’t involve negligence have a 2-year statute of limitations. At Tighe P.A., we advise our clients to act as soon as possible, however. That way evidence is more likely to be preserved and witness memories will stay fresh.

What Are the Most Common Personal Injuries?

Florida’s most common personal injuries are slip and fall accidents, product liability cases, vehicular accidents, worker’s compensation cases, and medical malpractice. Tighe P.A. attorneys handle a range of personal injury claims. Book an appointment with our Florida personal injury lawyers to find out what your case might be worth.

Personal Injury Law FAQs

Before hiring a personal injury lawyer, you want to know four basic things: timeline, services, cost, and the viability of your claim.

You should hire a personal injury lawyer whenever you’ve been injured in an accident due to negligence or wrongdoing. Maybe there’s been a dispute about who is to blame for the sustained injuries. Hire a lawyer. If you’re being blamed for causing your own injury, it’s time to hire a lawyer. If there are multiple parties involved: lawyer up.

Personal injury lawyers will advocate for you and review all aspects of your case so that you get the advice and compensation you’re entitled to concerning your case. If you’re at all unsure of your rights, a personal injury lawyer can explain your options to put your mind at ease. 

They’ll take the legwork out of navigating legal action while you rest and recover or focus on caring for your loved ones.

When hiring a personal injury lawyer, you want to consider contingency fees, court costs, and other expenses. You don’t have to pay a personal injury lawyer by the hour. Instead, you’ll pay them a contingency fee, which is a percentage of your settlement or your jury award. 

If you don’t win your case, you don’t pay any fees. The contingency fee will vary based on your agreement with your lawyer and whether you settled the case before or after filing a lawsuit.

It’s essential to have evidence to prove a personal injury claim. That could look like physical evidence that was either photographed or preserved soon after the accident. 

Presenting detailed photographs of injuries, medical records, or referrals from specialists can help solidify your case. You can also show documentation of missed work or medical bills to indicate your pain and suffering.
