What is a Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Lawsuit

A pensacola personal injury lawsuit is filed by an individual who has sustained physical injury as a result of negligent, reckless or intentional conduct by another individual, company or entity. A wrongful death lawsuit is filed by the survivors of an individual killed as a result of the negligent, reckless or intentional conduct of another person, company or entity. Survivors generally include the spouse, children and/or parents.

What Types of Cases Qualify as a Pensacola Personal Injury lawsuit and Wrongful Death Claim

Any circumstance in which a person suffers physical injuries as a result of the negligence of another qualifies as a pensacola personal injury case. Any circumstance in which a person is killed as a result of the negligence of another qualifies as a wrongful death lawsuit.

How Long Do I Have to Bring a Pensacola Personal Injury Lawsuit and Wrongful Death Claim

Individual claims depend on the type of case and which state it occurred. For example, if an auto accident occurred in Pensacola, Florida, then the injured person would have four years to file a lawsuit for injuries not resulting in death, but a two-year limitation period if the auto accident caused death. If the car accident was caused by a governmental entity, claims procedures must be filed six months before a lawsuit is filed, with a maximum limitation period of three years. In professional negligence cases resulting in injuries or death, the limitation period in Florida can be as short as two years and there are certain procedures that must be followed before the lawsuit can be filed.

There are numerous factors that determine how short of a period you have to file a pensacola injury lawsuit, including what state the injury or death occurred, the type of injury sustained, whether the opposing side is an individual, company or governmental entity, when you became aware, or should have become aware of the injury.

The most important thing is that you immediately seek legal advice when you become aware of a potential injury, even if you decide not to hire a lawyer. We will provide you a confidential and free consult, even if you decide not to hire us. This way you at least can determine your rights, and how long you have to pursue those rights.

How Do I Pay for a Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Lawyer

Our personal injury lawyers provide an absolutely free confidential consultation, and if we are fortunate enough for you to hire us, we never will charge you any fees or costs unless you first recover. This type of fee is known as a contingency fee.
The fee we charge ranges from 20% to 40% depending upon the amount we recover for you.This fee should be virtually identical to what other lawyers are charging, especially in Florida, as the amount is controlled by The Florida Bar. This is true whether your lawyer has never handled a personal injury case or whether it has been the focus of their practice for more than 50 years, as with our law firm.
