Our Personal Injury Attorneys Are Ready to Take on Your Accident

Personal injury cases are accidents or incidents caused by some party’s negligent behavior. Some of the cases we handle include:

Medical Malpractice, Birth Injury, and Hospital Negligence Cases

Our lawyers have dedicated their careers to personal injury accidents, but the causes closest to our hearts involve people hurt by medical malpractice. We expect medical professionals to provide exceptional care, but this is not always the case. When they fail to uphold the standard of care, we will hold them accountable. Some of the medical malpractice cases we handle include:

  • Misdiagnosis of a condition or a failure to diagnose a condition
  • Wrong treatment of a medical condition
  • Missed or delayed diagnoses
  • Failure to admit a patient to a hospital, which can happen with something like a heart attack or a stroke
  • Surgical errors
  • Incorrect medications
  • Improper discharging from a hospital
  • Birth injuries that harm children and parents alike, including preeclampsia, cerebral palsy, and hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE)
  • Hospital negligence, which is a case where a hospital or medical facility does not uphold the standard of care expected by these entities

Medical malpractice cases in Florida are particularly challenging due to the laws surrounding these cases, so you shouldn’t go to just any firm for help. There are a lot of factors that can complicate Florida medical malpractice claims, but our team has the experience necessary to go to bat for you.

Vehicle Accident Cases

As Floridians ourselves, we know just how dangerous the roads can be. With over 18 million licensed drivers on our roads as of 2024, the chances of an accident are unfortunately high. While some accidents are relatively minor, others can cause catastrophic injuries and losses. Some of the vehicle accidents we handle include:

Complex insurance laws and legal doctrines make vehicle accidents intimidating to deal with, but our attorneys know what it takes to build a successful case.

Premises Liability Cases

Premises liability cases are personal injury cases where someone is harmed on another person or entity’s property. Some of the common cases we see in this category include:

  • Slip and falls or trip and falls
  • Dog bites
  • Negligent security

Determining liability in these cases can be extremely complex for victims, as the liable party may not always be obvious, or the other party will say you were to blame for your own injuries.

We Handle Other Personal Injury Cases, Too

You or a family member can suffer from someone else’s negligence in many ways, including nursing home abuse, defective products, and accidents on a cruise ship, among other incidents. A loved one may even pass away from their injuries. Please reach out to see if we can help.

The Importance of Hiring a Personal Injury Lawyer in Florida

While you may not legally need a lawyer to seek damages from an at-fault party, it is a huge undertaking for an accident victim. When you work with our firm, we offer decades of experience and peace of mind. As a personal injury firm, our team will:

  • Provide legal guidance every step of the way: You have the right to seek compensation if a negligent party harms you. However, there are nuanced legal doctrines at play, and you can quickly get lost in the details. Florida laws and doctrines surrounding deadlines, liability, comparative negligence, and other factors make personal injury cases easy to mess up without help.
  • Investigate your case: There is a lot of legwork involved with an injury case. You need evidence and proof to support your claims that someone else caused your injuries and losses. This could mean finding and interviewing witnesses, requesting and analyzing accident reports, and reviewing medical records and expenses for losses.
  • Provide invaluable resources: Don’t let the size of our firm deceive you– we have plenty of resources to build a strong case for compensation. We consult medical experts, accident reconstruction professionals, and others to help support your claims against the other party.
  • Calculate the value of your losses: Estimating the value of your case is no small task. While some damages have a direct financial value, others do not, or they have a long-term expense that is hard to calculate. Let our lawyers and team of professionals take on this task to make sure you get everything you are owed.
  • Negotiate with insurance companies: Dealing with an insurance company is already a chore for many, but this is even harder when you are struggling to recover and dealing with insurance adjusters who don’t always want to give you a fair payout. We know how to handle these conversations, and we know how to negotiate fair settlements on your behalf.
  • Take your case to court: Freidin Brown, P.A. offers board-certified trial attorneys, and we’ve had over 300 trials in front of a jury. We are no strangers to representing our clients in court. The liable party does not always want to settle things before trial, and we’ll take them up on their reluctance to settle. We’ll do what it takes to get you a satisfactory award.

You deserve a law firm that will take your case seriously and communicate every step of the way, so do not hesitate to reach out to Freidin Brown, P.A. at 888-677-7764 to get started.

We would be honored to represent you during this challenging time, so give us a call when you’re ready.

Our Florida Attorneys Will Fight for the Full Value of Your Damages

Accidents and injuries come with many kinds of losses and damages. Some fall under the category of economic damages, which just means that this loss has a direct financial value. Other losses are intangible and do not have an immediate financial value. This type of damage is a non-economic loss, and our lawyers will work to estimate a value for these losses. Every case is different, but some of the common losses we seek compensation for include:

  • Lost income and wages
  • Medical expenses, including those expenses you may have in the future
  • Property damage
  • Pain and suffering
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium and support
  • Loss of services to you or your family members
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Funeral and burial expenses, if a loved one died as a result of their accident

Although a rare form of damages, our personal injury attorneys may be able to seek punitive damages if the other party was grossly negligent.

If you’re worried about how much this will cost you, you do not have to worry. Our firm offers contingency fee arrangements, so you do not pay us until we win your case. And if we don’t recover any money for you, you will never owe us a dime out of your pocket. We believe justice should be accessible to all.

Frequently Asked Questions About Florida Personal Injury Law

Is There a Deadline for Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Yes, Florida’s statute of limitations limits how long you have to file a lawsuit for your injuries and losses. Most personal injury cases follow Florida Statutes § 95.11 (4)(a), which states you generally have no more than two years from the date of your accident to file your lawsuit. If a loved one passed away as a result of their injuries or at the time of the accident, you still only have two years from the date of the incident.

Medical malpractice follows a slightly different time limit, outlined in Florida Statutes § 95.11 (4)(c). For cases involving medical malpractice, you generally have two years from the date when you discover your injuries, or the date by which you should have discovered your injuries. However, you may have up to four years from the date of the incident that caused your harm to file.

There are also some exceptions to these deadlines and cases that might fall under a different statute of limitations, but reach out to our lawyers to discuss any and all timelines. We encourage you to call as soon as possible to maximize the time we have to take action.

Am I Able to Seek Compensation if I’m Partially At Fault for My Injuries?

Yes, you may be able to pursue a case if you were at fault for the accident or injuries, depending on the type of case you have. However, there is a limit to this. According to Florida Statutes § 768.81, as long as you are no more than 50 percent responsible for the accident, you can recover damages.

Determining your percentage of fault is quite complicated, and you’ll be going up against a party that may try to assign you a higher percentage of blame, regardless of whether you contributed to the accident or not. We have seen this tactic from insurance companies hundreds of times, and we know how to defend our clients on this front.

How Much Compensation Can I Pursue for My Losses?

It is difficult to estimate how much a case is actually worth– there are many factors to take into account, and no case is quite the same as someone else’s. However, we take the following factors into account when determining how much we can pursue:

  • The severity of your physical injuries and the recovery time
  • Your associated medical costs, both now and in the future
  • The impact of your injuries on your ability to work and earn wages and benefits
  • The effect of your injuries on your emotional and mental wellbeing
  • The level of pain and suffering you went through
  • How much your actions contributed to the accident, if at all

There are many elements to the value of your case, and we will make sure every cent is accounted for. But one important factor is how much we could recover from the defendant. If there are limited or no insurance funds to be collected, then that may hinder your ability to recover your full damages.

How Does My Personal Injury Protection Policy Work After My Car Accident?

One common question we get is how someone’s personal injury protection (PIP) policy applies to their car accident. Florida follows a no-fault system for car accidents, which means your PIP will be the first policy that pays for some medical expenses and lost wages. However, many car accident victims have losses beyond the threshold established by the policy.

If you meet the serious injury threshold outlined in Florida Statutes § 627.737, you can seek compensation for the losses not covered by your policy. Trying to figure out if you qualify for this while juggling insurers and healing is a lot of strain on you and your family, so let us take this on for you.
