New Port Richey Personal Injury Lawyers

Understanding the Injury “Threshold”

Because Florida is a no-fault state, the injury threshold becomes important in auto accident claims. To reduce the burden on the court system, Florida requires vehicle accident victims to meet specific conditions before suing for damages. Your case must specifically reach the serious injury level.

Drivers in Florida are obliged to carry $10,000 in no-fault personal injury coverage. This covers medical expenses incurred as a result of car accidents. However, in other circumstances, the injuries are so severe that $10,000 is insufficient to pay the losses.

You must be able to demonstrate that your injury fits one of the following conditions if you want to sue for damages after an auto accident:

  • It’s a long-term injury.
  • You have significant and lasting scarring or disfigurement.
  • You’ve permanently lost physiological function.
  • You wish to file a wrongful death claim because a family member passed away in the accident.

How “Negligence” Can Impact Your Claim

In breaching the duty of care owed to another person, one commits negligence. Negligence can be an act, such as speeding, or an omission, such as a doctor neglecting to conduct adequate diagnostic testing on a patient.

The majority of personal injury and wrongful death claims are based on negligence. To win a negligence lawsuit, you must demonstrate that you were owed a duty of care, that the duty was breached, that the violation caused your injury or loss, and that you suffered damages.

When you’re up against a resourceful insurance company, proving these factors can be quite difficult. Emerson Straw’s New Port Richey personal injury lawyers understand what it takes to win even the most difficult cases. We can assist you in gathering information, developing a compelling claim, and avoiding significant errors that could compromise your case.
