We offer the following services to our personal injury clients:
Free Initial Consultations
Your complimentary consultation is an important part of the process. It allows us to evaluate the unique details of your case. By getting to know you and your situation, we can then determine the appropriate legal steps to take. The consultation is also a great time for you to ask any questions about what to expect from the legal process.
Collect Important Documentation
We will need to collect supporting documentation to establish your account of events. We will assist you in gathering the following types of documents:

Florida’s personal injury process can be complex and confusing. We will assist you every step of the way with your best interests in mind. By collecting the required documents and handling communications, you can focus on your recovery.

The Personal Injury Statute of Limitations in Boca Raton
Another important reason to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible is to stay within Florida’s statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is the period of time in which you can file a lawsuit. Filing after the limitations can result in a dismissal of your injury case.
In the state of Florida, all personal injury lawsuits must be filed within two years from the date of the injury, per Florida Statutes §95.11(3)(a). There are some specifying details that could shorten or extend the statute of limitations.
For example, when a personal injury case involves legal incapacitation or the responsible party fled to avoid litigation, the statute of limitations may be extended.

How Florida’s Personal Injury Laws Can Affect Your Claim
Understanding Florida’s personal injury laws can help us navigate the legal system and determine the appropriate steps to take in your case.
Personal Injury Threshold
To seek compensation for a personal injury, Florida requires that your injuries be significant. This is measured with a threshold. This threshold may differ, depending on the type of accident and the injuries suffered.
Demonstrating Personal Injury Fault
Florida requires that we establish the following four elements in order to determine fault:
- Duty of care: The defendant must have held a duty of care to the injured party.
- Breach of duty: The defendant must have breached that duty of care in some way. This can be through intentional actions or negligence.
- Causation: We must demonstrate that the breach of duty led to the personal injury.
- Actual damages: We must also connect the damages incurred as a result of the breach of duty.
How do Florida’s Negligence Laws Work?
Most personal injury cases involve negligence in terms of breach of duty. Demonstrating negligence will depend on the type of injury suffered. Negligent activities might include one of the following:
- Medical malpractice during a medical visit
- Failure to notify customers of a slippery floor
- Distracted driving
- Defective product design
Florida is a pure comparative negligence state. This means that you can only seek compensation for the portion of your injury that was not your fault. If you were partially to blame for the injuries, your compensatory amount could be reduced.
Each personal injury case is unique. It is important that you speak with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to evaluate the specific details of your case.
