Spring Hill Personal Injury Lawyer
Injuries are part of life in Spring Hill, Florida. What's not part of life is when such injuries happen due to someone else's negligence or recklessness. You shouldn't have to suffer because someone somewhere didn't care about doing the right thing when they owed you a duty of care. Take, for example, a situation where a healthcare provider fails to provide appropriate care to a patient, leading to illnesses, injuries, or even death.
If another healthcare provider could have provided proper care under similar circumstances, then the healthcare provider who failed to meet this standard of care might have acted negligently. Another example is when someone drinks and drives and then causes a car accident, injuring or even killing someone. That is also a form of negligence.
In such cases, you, as the injured party or a loved one who is a victim, may be able to claim compensation for the injuries and losses sustained. If that's what brings you to Morgan and Morgan, the largest injury firm in America, we would be more than happy to review your case for free.
Please fill out our free case evaluation form today. One of our client intake team members we'll review your case to determine whether you have a viable claim. If you have a viable claim, we may be able to represent you in your pursuit of the compensation you or a loved one deserves.

What Kind of Cases Can a Spring Hill Personal Injury Lawyer Handle?
It all depends on the attorney you hire to represent you. Generally, The term "personal injury" defines a wide range of injuries that occur due to someone else's negligence or recklessness. For context, our attorneys can handle cases of injuries caused by:
- Car accidents
- Slip and falls
- Medical malpractice
- Defective products
- Premises liability
- Wrongful death
- Workplace accidents and incidents
Also, note that these injuries do not always have to be physical; you may also be entitled to compensation if you suffered mental, emotional, or psychological injuries. For example, if you are a victim of defamation, you may have a valid personal injury case.
In general, just as long as you've been injured due to someone else's negligence, we may be able to help you fight for the compensation you deserve. For additional details about the kind of cases we can handle, head over to our Practice Areas page. And if you're still unsure whether your case is even worth filing a claim, all you need is a free case evaluation from our client intake team. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain, including possible financial compensation (if your case is valid).
When Should You Hire a Spring Hill Personal Injury Lawyer?
In Spring Hill, a personal injury lawyer comes in handy to help protect your rights if you have suffered serious injuries due to someone else's negligence or recklessness. The same applies if you've already filed an insurance claim, but the insurance company is acting out of bad faith. Other common reasons to contact a personal injury lawyer to handle your case include:
- If you're not sure whether you have a valid case.
- If you lost a loved one in an accident or incident caused by negligence or recklessness.
- If more than one party might have been responsible for the injuries you or a loved one sustained.
Is There a Deadline for Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer in Spring Hill?
The deadline for filing a lawsuit or a civil claim will depend on whether your case is based on negligence or not. In Florida, most civil cases based on negligence have a two-year deadline. On the other hand, car accidents, wrongful deaths, and premises liability cases usually have a four-year deadline.
It is also worth mentioning that you shouldn't wait for this deadline to expire. That's because if you file a claim or lawsuit outside this time frame, the other party will file a motion with the court to dismiss your case based on the fact that you missed the deadline. When that happens, it's very likely that the court will consider the request and dismiss your case. In addition, even if you believe your case will settle, leaving enough legroom for your attorney to explore other legal options is always advisable just in case the other party refuses to cooperate with your legal team somewhere down the road.
What Damages Can a Personal Injury Attorney Help You Recover?
If you have a valid claim, we can help you recover various damages based on the nature of your case. This also depends on why you are filing a personal injury claim in the first place. For example, in a car accident case, the damages you can recover will depend on where you file the claim. Under Florida laws, you must first file a claim with your own insurance company to recover compensation through your personal injury protection insurance.
This insurance usually covers medical expenses and lost wages up to a certain amount or percentage. For medical expenses, you can only recover 80% of the coverage. On the other hand, for lost wages, you can only recover up to 60%.
There are also cases where you may be able to step out of the no-fault system used in Spring Hill and throughout Florida when it comes to car accident cases. Here, you may be able to file a claim with the other party's insurance company if your injuries meet the state's "serious injury threshold."
Generally, in a typical personal injury case, plaintiffs may be entitled to the following damages:
- Medical expenses (current and future)
- Lost wages and diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
- Emotional distress
- Rehabilitation and therapy costs
- Punitive damages (in cases of gross negligence)
Can You Still Recover Damages if You Were Partly at Fault for the Injury?
The state of Florida recently adopted the modified comparative negligence legal system. This system allows the plaintiff to recover damages as long as they are less than 50% at fault for an accident. Previously, the state followed the pure comparative negligence rule that allowed plaintiffs to recover damages even if they were more than 50% at fault. For context, under the previous system, plaintiffs could recover damages even if they were 99% at fault.
What if Someone Died in the Accident or Incident?
You may have a wrongful death claim if someone has tragically died in the accident. A skilled personal injury lawyer in Spring Hill can help surviving family members pursue compensation for funeral expenses, medical bills, loss of income, and emotional suffering, among other damages they may be entitled to resulting from losing a loved one.
What Is the Average Personal Injury Compensation in Spring Hill?
There's nothing like an average settlement for these kinds of cases. That's because each case is unique. In fact, it's never advisable to trust any lawyer who promises to help you recover a certain amount as compensation for your injuries and losses, especially if they haven't yet reviewed your case.
That said, at Morgan Morgan, we always aim to achieve the highest possible compensation for our client's injuries and losses. Once we've reviewed your case, we will let you know the average amount of compensation you may be entitled to based on the specifics of your case.
What Parties Can Be Held Liable for a Personal Injury in Spring Hill?
When it comes to determining liability, any negligent party may be held responsible for your injuries and losses. This includes but is not limited to the following:
- Individuals for their actions
- Businesses and corporations
- Government entities
- Property owners
- Healthcare providers
And many others.
Will Your Personal Injury Lawyer Represent You in Court?
One thing that makes Morgan and Morgan stand out in the personal injury field is that we're never afraid to take the at-fault party to court if they refuse to settle out of court. That said, we always aim to settle out of court because that's usually the fastest way for our clients to receive compensation for their injuries and losses. Settling out of court means we won't have to worry about court backlogs that tend to delay the entire legal process, and importantly, both parties can reach a fair resolution without much conflict.
