Florida Personal Injury Claims

The first thing that must be done before jumping into a personal injury claim is to have a good understanding of what is meant by a personal injury and on what grounds one might claim compensations for the wrongdoing. Personal injury can result from the use of dangerous or defective products. “Products liability” law refers to the rules governing a manufacturer or other provider’s liability for products that harm consumers and workers.

First, you must have suffered an injury to your person or property. Second, you should consider whether your injury was the result of someone else’s fault. It is not always necessary to have a physical injury to bring a personal injury lawsuit. Personal injury claims are often based on a variety of non-physical losses and harms. In the case of an assault for example, you do not need to show that a person’s action caused you actual physical harm. However, you must show that you expected some harm to come to you. You also may have a case if someone has attacked your reputation, invaded your privacy or inflicted emotional distress upon you.
