Can I Sue for My Injuries?
Whether you can sue for damages will depend on the details of your case and the cause of your injuries. In general, a person can take legal action if he or she has been injured because of a negligent or reckless act of another person or entity.
For example, if a fast food restaurant fails to clean up a spill on the floor and does not warn customers of the hazard, the owner of the restaurant may be held liable for any injuries sustained by its customers.
Why File a Lawsuit?
The purpose of a personal injury lawsuit is to compensate the victim for their losses and to hold the negligent party accountable for their actions. Through a personal injury lawsuit, our Winter Haven attorneys may be able to help you receive compensation for:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Reduced Earning Capacity
- Pain and Suffering
- Loss of Consortium (intended to compensate the spouse of a personal injury victim for the loss of the benefits of a family relationship)
