Across the United States, accidents of all types occur every day, causing serious injuries and, in the worst cases, even death. Although sometimes these injuries are truly the result of an accident, which no one could prevent, more often than not, someone’s actions caused you serious harm. When another person injures you or a loved one, you deserve justice, and you may be entitled to significant compensation for your pain.
In order to prevent serious accidents, everyone has the responsibility to act in a way that does not create unnecessary risks or hazards for others. Unfortunately, many people do not take this duty to others seriously, and they engage in reckless, negligent, or careless behavior. When someone is acting without thinking about others, they put you and your loved ones in danger.
Even when you take all the necessary precautions to protect your safety, you cannot always predict or avoid the dangerous actions of other people.

Understanding Personal Injury Lawsuits
The American Bar Association defines personal injury as any injury which occurs as the result of another person’s actions or failure to act. Although this definition is broad, the goal is to protect you during any situation in which another person hurts you.
Although every personal injury case is different, negligence is one of the most common ways that a person may cause you serious harm. Negligence is defined as a failure to take reasonable actions to prevent an accident from happening. Some examples of negligence may include an employee who fails to clean up a spill, which makes the floor slippery, or a doctor who does not order sufficient testing before giving a diagnosis.
Another common cause of personal injuries is recklessness, which is a complete disregard for the harm that one’s actions may cause. Examples of reckless behavior include drinking and driving, street racing, and operating machinery without proper training.
No matter whether the person who caused your accident was reckless or negligent, the attorneys at Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller & Overbeck P.A. are ready to help you seek justice. A personal injury lawsuit can help you protect your financial future and ensure that this injury does not derail your life.

If you have experienced a personal injury under any of these circumstances, you have the right to seek compensation. However, you need to act quickly, so you can file your lawsuit before you reach the statute of limitations for your case.
The statute of limitations is a date after which your case is no longer valid in court. This time frame varies depending on the type of accident you have and the person or group you are filing a lawsuit against. In the state of Florida, you have at most four years to file a lawsuit for your personal injury case. However, you need to discuss your case with a lawyer as soon as possible, so you understand these time limits based on your individual circumstances.
Possible Compensation After an Injury
Serious injuries often come with extensive medical intervention and ongoing care, even years after the injury occurs. Medical treatment is extremely expensive, but you should never have to sacrifice the care that you need or the support your family deserves because of your financial circumstances.
When another person injures you, they are the ones who should pay your medical bills and cover any additional expenses from this accident. A personal injury lawsuit can help ensure that this individual takes responsibility for their behavior and that you do not suffer financial ruin as a result of another person’s reprehensible actions. The settlement you receive from your personal injury lawsuit may help cover expenses including, but not limited to:
- Emergency medical care
- Surgery and hospitalization
- Medication and assistive medical devices
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation services
- Transportation to medical appointments
- Vehicle repairs or replacement
- Psychological counseling
- Partial or total disability
- Lost wages
- Lost future income
The compensation you receive from your personal injury lawsuit can protect you and your loved ones from financial ruin. You need to discuss your case with a lawyer as soon as possible, so you understand the amount of compensation that is appropriate for your pain. This injury has changed your life significantly, but with the help of a lawyer, it will not dictate your financial security or your future.
