Why Would I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer in Dade City?

In the blink of an eye, your life can change because of someone else’s irresponsible behavior. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious personal injury due to an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, you may have a personal injury claim. At the office of the Kemp, Ruge & Green Law Group, our Dade City personal injury attorneys can provide you with the counsel, support, and representation you need as you navigate the personal injury claims process.

Key Benefits of Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer

  • Investigation of the accident
  • Communication and negotiation with insurance companies
  • Prove negligence
  • Maximize the effort to get fair compensation

Personal Injury Claims in Dade City

A cause of action for a personal injury claim exists when one party’s negligence leads to the injury of another. Examples of personal injury claim types that our law firm takes on include:

  • Slip, trip, and fall accidents;
  • Drowning and near-drowning accidents;
  • Motor vehicle crashes;
  • Truck accidents;
  • Dog bites;
  • Medical malpractice;
  • Wrongful death;
  • Products liability claims;
  • Premises liability claims;
  • Motorcycle accidents

Elements of a personal injury claim

A personal injury claim consists of four elements: duty, breach of duty, causation, and damages. Essentially, you will need to prove that the defendant owed you a duty of care, that the defendant acted negligently and therefore breached that duty of care, that the defendant’s actions were the proximate cause of your harm, and that you suffered actual damages as a result.

Damages recoverable in a personal injury claim

A personal injury claim can be used to recover damages for economic and noneconomic losses. Examples of economic and noneconomic losses that you may suffer as a result of a serious accident include medical expenses, property damage costs, lost wages, pain, suffering, emotional distress, and more.

Time limits on personal injury claims in Florida

If you think that you want to bring forth a personal injury claim, bringing forth your claim within the state’s statute of limitations is critical–if you wait longer than the statute of limitations to file a suit, you will be barred from recovery. The personal injury statute of limitations in Florida is four years from the date of injury, as found in Florida Statutes Section 95.11.

Commonly Asked Questions About Dade City Personal Injury Claims

  • Do I really need a lawyer?
  • Whether or not you need an attorney to represent you in your claim varies on a case-by-case basis. If your injuries are severe, your damages serious, or your claim complex (i.e. if fault is disputed, your claim has been denied by an insurance provider, etc.), then working with an attorney is absolutely within your best interests. If you’re unsure about whether or not working with an attorney is necessary, it’s best to seek a free case consultation.
  • Will I have to file a lawsuit?
  • Many people also worry about the prospect of filing a lawsuit and litigating their case. It’s important to understand that in most cases, personal injury claims are settled through negotiations, not litigation.
  • What if I can’t afford a lawyer?
  • One of the biggest assumed barriers to seeking legal counsel and pursuing a claim is the cost. At our law office, though, we work on a contingency fee basis, which means you’ll never have any out-of-pocket costs and we won’t charge you a cent if we don’t win your case.
