Accidents causing personal injuries are an unfortunate part of life in all 50 states. They are commonly caused by car accidents, on-the-job mishaps, unsafe conditions, slip-and-falls, and medical malpractice. Frequently, these accidents, and the resulting injuries, are not the fault of the victim. Under such circumstances accident victims who have suffered personal injuries may have a claim for damages against the parties at fault. Because Florida has distinct laws governing the issue of fault with regard to accidents, and other rules pertaining to when personal injury lawsuits may be filed, it is important that Florida accident victims reach out to a skilled and experienced Florida personal injury attorney.
