I’ve Been Injured

I’ve Been Injured

If you or someone in your family has been injured, you should seek legal advice as quickly as possible to see if you have a claim for personal injury. The cause of an injury may not always be obvious, and there may be one or more parties responsible.

Florida Law Doc can help determine the cause of an injury, and whether someone is legally responsible. Call today at (727) 319-8030 or contact us online to learn more.

What if an insurance company contacts me?

If you have been injured, do not discuss your injury or the way it happened until you have consulted a lawyer. Your statements might be incomplete or taken out of context so as to be harmful to your claim at a later date. Do not sign any papers or agree to any settlement, as this may affect your right to pursue your claim. Always seek competent legal advice first. At Florida Law Doc, your initial consultation is free of charge.

Is it ever too late to bring a claim?

It is important to consult a lawyer as soon as you are aware that you have been injured, because there are statutes of limitations that prohibit the bringing of old claims, and because it is easier to gather information about a recent injury. However, even if you were injured sometime ago, you may still be able to bring a claim.

If I have a claim how long will it take?

The initial evaluation of a medical malpractice claim or other personal injury claim may take from four to six months. After a lawsuit is filed, the length of time depends on how crowded the court calendar is, and whether the insurance company is willing to settle the claim before the trial. Most cases take between two and four years to complete. During this time medical records and other documents are requested and thoroughly reviewed by our staff as well as by experts in the field.
