Frequently Asked Questions
The Palm Beach Gardens personal injury lawyers of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller, Overbeck & Baxter P.A. know you probably have questions about the legal process. It’s often confusing to navigate when you don’t understand state laws and procedures. We’ve answered some of the most common questions our clients have so you can prepare for your personal injury case.
What does wrongful death mean?
According to Florida Statute § 768.19, wrongful death is a person’s death that was caused by someone else’s default, wrongful act, negligence, or breach of contract or warranty. Wrongful death can occur in a number of scenarios, such as:
- Boating accident
- Medical malpractice
- Motor vehicle accident
- Nursing home abuse
- Airplane accident
- Doctor error during childbirth
Is there a deadline for filing a lawsuit?
Yes. If you want to file a lawsuit against another person or a company for the injury you suffered, you must follow a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations in Florida is four years. That means you must initiate your personal injury lawsuit within four years of the accident date to seek compensation. For wrongful death cases, the statute of limitations is two years, but there are several exceptions. Your attorney can advise you whether any exceptions apply in your case.
What should I do if the insurance company calls me?
Insurance companies often call accident victims to obtain information regarding the accident. The adjuster might ask you questions regarding the cause of the incident and the type of injury you sustained.
You should never talk to the insurance company after an accident. It might seem like an innocent conversation, but the adjuster is likely trying to obtain details they can use against you. They don’t want to offer an adequate settlement. If they can find a reason to deny your claim or provide a low offer, they will. They can use anything you say against you if they can figure out a way to do so.
Inform the insurance company that you hired a lawyer and give them our contact information. We can speak with them during your ongoing case on your behalf.
