Understanding Personal Injury Claims
If you’ve been in an accident and have been hurt, you should seek medical care first. Then you should seek advice from personal injury lawyers. They can explain the process of filing a claim. They can also help you to understand your rights in a personal injury case.
You have a limited amount of time to file a personal injury claim in North Miami Beach. Florida’s statute of limitations is four years after the date of an injury or an accident to file a claim.
Your personal injury claim in Florida is also influenced by the state’s legal doctrine of “comparative negligence.” The claims process identifies if people involved in an injury or accident are responsible due to negligence. For example, if a driver involved in a car crash is found to be 25 percent responsible or negligent, their claim award will be reduced by 25 percent.
Types Of Damages Awarded For Personal Injury Claims in North Miami Beach
Personal injury cases involve compensation (money) that is awarded depending on the damage that has been suffered. Compensation is determined based on categories of damages which help to identify specific financial amounts of compensation.
Damages in personal injury claims in North Miami Beach include, but aren’t limited to:
- repair and replacement of your vehicle or equipment
- medical treatment
- psychiatric treatment
- prescription medications and medical devices

Punitive damages, an additional type of damages, are intended to punish people who have been negligent in a personal injury case. This type of damage isn’t often awarded, but it is possible.
Knowing What Your Claim Is Worth
Severe injuries will often result in higher awards than less-severe injuries. The amount of a personal injury settlement in North Miami Beach will depend on the amount of damage you have suffered. Additional factors influencing claim awards include compensation for lost income and projected future needs.
Incidents involving minor injuries or minor property damage generally result in lower claim awards than those involving serious injury or even wrongful death.
In a case where a person has lost their life or become permanently disabled, awards will recognize these severe and extreme losses. A personal injury attorney can review your claim and provide you with a detailed estimate for how much you may be able to win.

Do I Need To Hire A Personal Injury Attorney
There is no requirement to hire a personal injury lawyer in order to file your claim. However, a personal injury attorney can help to protect your rights as well as assist in the process of filing a claim.
The doctrine of “comparative negligence” in Florida means that others involved in an accident or other cause of injury could be motivated to place blame on you regardless of the situation. Because claim awards are reduced by the amount a person is found to be negligent or at fault in an accident or injury, the attorneys or insurance companies representing others may be motivated to place blame on others.
Other individuals involved in an accident may have attorneys representing them. Incidents involving serious injuries or damages will certainly involve attorneys representing insurance companies. Hiring a personal injury lawyer helps to protect your rights and to obtain compensation for your injuries.
