Why Choose Morgan & Morgan?
Talking to an attorney about filing a lawsuit can be a daunting
proposition, especially in the aftermath of injury, economic loss or the
unfortunate death of a loved one.
A lawsuit allows you to recover
compensation for those losses when another individual or entity is at
fault for acting negligently or carelessly to cause the injury. Our
attorneys can help you estimate the financial burdens you face from the
accident and help you file a claim to receive compensation for those
Claims can be filed to recover for losses for:
- Any current and future medical expenses you have to bear, including physical therapy, surgery, home modifications etc;
- Loss of wages and earning capacity;
- Pain and suffering;
- Mental and emotional trauma;
- Loss of life’s enjoyment; and
- Loss of companionship, comfort, affection, and consortium.
In the unfortunate situations where fatalities occur, you may be able to
file a wrongful death claim to claim compensation for expenses related
to your loss, for e.g. funeral expenses, loss of wages, and loss of
Monetary awards for damages are meant to make victims whole again. While
compensation cannot heal your injury or bring back loved ones it can
cover expenses during a difficult time for you and your family. Taking
legal action can also hold parties responsible for their negligence or
careless actions and, in some cases, you may be awarded larger awards of
punitive damages meant to discourage the same type of action or omission
by other similar actors.
Can I Sue for My Injuries?
Not all injury victims are entitled to file a lawsuit and recover for their
losses. A number of factors are considered when determining whether you
are able to recover for your injury, including the cause and severity of
your injury as well as the time and place it occurred. A qualified
Melbourne attorney will be able to evaluate all of the relevant factors
and determine whether you are able to bring a lawsuit.
The majority of personal injury claims in Florida are based on the
theory of negligence. Negligence is the failure of a party to adhere to
a certain level of care that causes or results in injury to another.
Someone deemed negligent, can be held liable for the resulting injuries
or damages caused by their failure to protect others against an
unreasonable risk of harm.
For instance, a driver might be considered negligent if he or she
violates Florida law by driving through a stop sign or driving under the
influence, causing injury to another.
Additionally, a doctor my be found
liable for injury resulting from a missed diagnosis after failing to
perform a certain diagnostic test, that another doctor in a similar
situation would have performed. Negligence can be complex and our
Melbourne attorneys can help you make sense of your situation.
