The term ‘personal injury’ covers many possible situations, including brain and spinal cord injuries, caused by car accidents, truck accidents, bicycle accidents and motorcycle accidents.
Essentially, in Florida, a claim for personal injury can arise when someone acts or fails to act in such a way that it gives rise to negligence, which is a legal term meaning that someone did not act properly given the circumstances.
Given the high amount of lawyer advertising regarding personal injury claims in the West Palm Beach areas, many people assume that filing such a claim and obtaining an award of damages is always a relatively simple process. As you’ll see below with a brief overview of the elements that must be proven in any personal injury claim, nothing could be further from the truth.
