Helping You Pursue a Claim After an Accident
Being involved in any type of accident can be stressful. What can make the situation even worse is when it is caused by someone else's negligence or reckless actions. Often, accidents result in injuries that require medical attention and may cause you to miss work. This means you might have steep expenses coupled with a loss of income. In Florida, if another person was at fault for your accident, you may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim against them. Such legal action allows you to attempt to recover compensation for damages, relieving you of financial burdens and letting you focus on your health.
Pursuing a personal injury claim against the person responsible for your accident isn't always an easy task.

Proving Fault in a Personal Injury Case
When you take civil action against the person or entity responsible for your accident, the burden rests on you to prove that they were at fault for your injuries.
Demonstrating fault means you must show that:
- The person who caused the accident owed you a duty of care,
- They breached that duty,
- You suffered injuries as a result of their negligence or carelessness, and
- You sustained damages
In a personal injury case, compensation can be sought for economic and non-economic damages, such as pain/suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, and emotional distress.
At Z Law Firm, L.L.C., our Orlando lawyer will help you through the process of proving fault and will evaluate your case to determine the amount of compensation to pursue.
