In a recent PalmBeachPost.com article, Florida personal injury attorney Ted Babbitt discusses when can a lawsuit be brought for personal injury.
He says in the article: “Florida has adopted a no-fault law which is designed to reduce litigation by providing some form of compensation regardless of who is at fault in an accident.” adding, “In order to bring an action for mental and physical pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life, the injury must be above a certain threshold.”
These thresholds are the following categories: significant and permanent loss of an important bodily function; permanent injury within a reasonable degree of medical probability; significant and permanent scarring or disfigurement; or death.
The best way of knowing the answer to “Do I have a personal injury case?” is to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who handles such cases regularly and can quickly tell whether a case can be brought – and what strategies may be most effective. When you do meet with a personal injury attorney, here is what you will need for your personal injury case.
