If you have been injured in an accident, you may be wondering if you have a case and whether or not you need to hire a lawyer. There are many different types of personal injury cases, and each lawyer will specialize in a certain type of case.
At The Fran Haasch Law Group, we offer a free case review to help determine whether you have a case. During your review, you can ask us any questions you have about your accident, our qualifications, or what to expect during the legal process.
We will review the facts of your accident and let you know if we think you have a claim. If we take your case, we will work on a contingency basis, which means that we only get paid if we recover compensation for you. Contact our Florida personal injury attorneys today for a free case review.
Personal Injury Claims We Handle in Florida
Here are some of the most common personal injury cases we handle:
Unfortunately, one of the most common types of personal injury cases we handle is car accidents. In 2021, over 400,000 car accidents occurred in Florida. With over 3,000 fatal accidents and over 250,000 accidents ending in injuries, Florida is the third-worst state for motor vehicles. Our Florida personal injury lawyers understand the devastation a car accident can cause, which is why we are here to help.
After a car accident, you may be facing a long road to recovery. You may have medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses piling up. To win your case, you’ll need to prove that the other driver was at fault and that their negligence led to your injuries.
Our Florida motorcycle accident lawyers have years of experience handling cases, but our law firm is also heavily involved in the community of amazing bikers throughout the Tampa Bay area.
With nearly 600,000 motorcycle registrations in Florida and over 8,000 motorcycle accidents in 2021, we understand how important it is to have an experienced lawyer on your side.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Another common type of accident that we see is slip and falls. These accidents often occur in grocery stores, restaurants, parking lots, or other public places.
To prove that the property owner is liable for your injuries, you must show that they were negligent in maintaining the property. This means that they failed to fix a dangerous condition or did not warn visitors about the danger.
A wrongful death claim is a type of personal injury lawsuit brought against someone who has caused the death of another person through their negligence. This can be a very difficult type of case to deal with, both emotionally and legally.
An attorney can help you investigate your case, gather evidence, negotiate with the insurance company, and file your lawsuit before limitations expire. An attorney can also help you navigate the complex legal process, giving you and your family time to focus on grieving.
Another common type of personal injury case is a dog bite. Under Florida personal injury law, dog owners are strictly liable for any injuries their dog causes. This means that if a dog has bitten you, the owner is automatically responsible, regardless of whether or not they knew the dog was dangerous.
What Do Personal Injury Lawyers Do?
Personal injury lawyers represent people who have been physically or emotionally injured due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity.
How Do I Know If I Have a Valid Claim?
The first step in determining whether you have a valid case is to contact a Florida personal injury lawyer to discuss your case. During this consultation, the lawyer will review the facts of your case and let you know what they think.
Many factors go into whether or not a personal injury case is valid. For example, the severity of your injuries, the negligence of the other party, and whether or not you have evidence to support your claim.
How to Find the Right Lawyer For Your Florida Personal Injury Claim
When looking for a personal injury lawyer, it is important to find one with experience handling similar cases. For example, if you were injured in a motorcycle accident, you may want to find a lawyer specializing in motorcycle accident cases.
The best way to find an experienced personal injury lawyer is to ask for referrals from friends or family members. You can also search online for personal injury lawyers in your area.
When choosing a personal injury lawyer, it is important to find one you feel comfortable with. This is someone who you will be working with closely, so it is important that you feel like you can trust them.
