Tampa Personal Injury Lawyer
Injured by someone else’s negligence and struggling to recover? Seek out help from a Tampa lawyer. We’ll fight back for the full compensation you deserve.
Dealing with an injury can already be frustrating and painful. When you’re dealing with the aftermath of someone else’s mistake, it can be even more upsetting and difficult to recover. You shouldn’t be the one to pay for someone else’s mistakes, after all.
Fortunately, you do have options with the help of a Tampa personal injury lawyer from Hersem Law. We understand that you’re struggling with your damages because someone else was careless. That’s why we’ll fight back to help you overcome this suffering.
Florida’s Negligence Laws
When you’re injured, determining who’s at fault and why can be key to your claim. Florida residents have a duty of care to those around them, meaning that they’re supposed to do what they can to minimize or avoid harm. For example, following traffic laws and avoiding drinking while driving should help you avoid causing a car accident.
However, some people breach this duty of care, leaving you seriously injured. If you slipped and fell in a store because an employee didn’t put a “wet floor” sign down, for instance, someone caused your injuries by failing to meet the basic standard of care.
When this happens, you’ll need to fight back for your compensation. You wouldn’t have been injured if they hadn’t been careless, so they should cover the expenses included in your Tampa injury claim.
Seeking Your Compensation
When you’ve determined that another party was negligent, you’ll need to seek out the full damages you’ve suffered. That means you’ll need both your economic and non-economic damages.
Your economic damages should cover any of the economic losses you’ve suffered. Fortunately, that makes these damages easier to calculate. If they left you with lost funds, you should receive compensation for those funds.
Non-economic damages can be more complicated. These damages cover the emotional and mental suffering you’ve been put through. For example, conditions like PTSD can cause life-affecting symptoms, but how do you compensate the anxiety and fear you experienced because of your injuries? Fortunately, a Tampa lawyer can help you calculate the worth of these non-economic injuries.
After your injury, make sure you’re getting the full compensation you deserve, including all your damages. Below are just a few of the damages that you could be eligible to be compensated for:
- Current and future medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Lost wages
- Emotional trauma
- Property damage
