Before pursuing a personal injury claim, it is important to determine if there is an actual case to be made. In Florida, a personal injury lawsuit can be filed against any individual or entity that is responsible for causing physical or emotional injury.
However, before taking legal action, it must first be determined if the injuries in the case were caused by negligence, intentional wrongdoing, or strict liability. Having a personal injury attorney evaluate your case can help determine whether or not you have a strong claim. This is why Anderson Trial Group offers complimentary case evaluations. You’ll have the opportunity to meet with a personal injury lawyer in Ocala and see if you have a case we can help you win. Due to the COVID pandemic, we are offering online video consultations as well.
The primary grounds for pursuing a personal injury claim are:
- Negligence: Any action or inaction that constitutes a failure to provide reasonable care or caution, and causes injury to another person.
- Intentional Wrongdoing: Purposeful conduct by a person or entity that causes injury or suffering to another person.
- Strict Liability: Strict liability occurs when a person or entity is held accountable for another person’s injuries regardless of specific intent or negligence, such as a worker’s compensation claim following a workplace accident or injury.
Anderson Trial Group will review your case and determine if it meets any of these three criteria to pursue a lawsuit.
