Common Types of Personal Injuries
A personal injury is one that you suffered because of another person’s negligence. To claim compensation for a personal injury, you must prove the at-fault party owed you a reasonable duty of care, disregarded their responsibility, caused your injuries, and that your injuries had a financial consequence. Common types of personal injuries include:
- Car accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Physical assaults
- Premises liability
- Product liability
- Intentional humiliation
If you were injured in one of these types of accidents, you have the basis of a personal injury insurance claim or lawsuit. With the help of a personal injury lawyer, you can identify and assign financial liability to the responsible party.

Your Injuries Have A Monetary Value
According to Florida Statutes § 768.81, you can seek compensation for your injuries and the expenses they cause. On your own, assessing the financial compensation of the injuries you suffer in an accident might be a complicated task. Assigning a value to the economic portions of your claim means adding the total cost of your accident-related expenses such as:
- Current medical bills
- Current lost income
- Property repair bills
- Property replacement costs
Your lawyer can help you assess the value of expenses that have not occurred yet, such as future medical bills and future lost income. Your lawyer can also help you value the noneconomic portions of your lawsuit that do not have a clear dollar value, including:
- Physical pain and suffering
- Physical disability
- Physical disfigurement
- Mental and emotional anguish
You do not have to calculate these intangible costs on your own. When you are ready to accurately value your personal injury claim, our case review team can review your claims to ensure they are accurately valued. We also work diligently to ensure you do not add to financial hardship to the damage of an accident someone else caused.

Our Team Can Help Identify the Liable Party
Proving the financial impact of your injuries is only one part of your claim for financial compensation. You must also be able to identify the at-fault party. Our team can help you do that by:
- Reading and reviewing accident or incident reports
- Locating and interviewing accident witnesses
- Conducting an independent investigation, if needed
When you are ready to identify the at-fault party and seek to have them assume financial responsibility for their negligent actions, our team is ready to support your pursuit of financial recovery. We can also help you negotiate a settlement that lets you avoid going to court while still receiving the compensation you deserve.
We Can Help Settle Your Case Out of Court
You can avoid going to court after you are injured by agreeing to a financial settlement with the liable party. When you agree to a financial settlement, you will permanently resolve your case. The at-fault driver does not have to pay any further compensation after you settle your case, even if you discover additional recoverable damages.
You should also know that the decision to accept or reject an offer is always yours to make. During settlement negotiations, your Orlando personal injury lawyer will offer advice on the feasibility of each offer you receive. Before you agree to accept an offer, make sure you have received and reviewed all the bills and receipts related to your accident. Doing so will ensure you won’t overlook expenses or undervalue your claim.
