  • "Personal Injury" means any type of injury an individual can suffer. A personal injury can be a physical injury, a mental injury, or both. Personal injuries can range from minor whiplash injuries to catastrophic injuries such as spinal chord injuries, paralysis, brain damage, and post traumatic stress.

The term "Personal Injury" is also commonly used to describe the body of law that addresses injuries suffered by individuals as a result of the negligence of another person, professional, corporation, or city, state, or other governmental agency.

A person or entity is "negligent" when their actions are not reasonable or prudent. Negligence can be a simple mistake. If a person fails to stop at a red light or fails to yield the right of way, for example, that conduct is negligent. Other common examples of negligence include the failure to maintain proper following distance (which often results in a rear-end car accident), driving too fast for conditions, and making an inappropriate turn.

If your personal injury was caused by the negligence of another, you are entitled to recover money damages for your past and future medical bills, property damage and often lost wages, pain and suffering. In most instances, insurance companies are responsible to pay for the negligence of their insured.

If you are injured in an accident, protect yourself by following a few simple rules: Do not be in a hurry to settle your claim. The statute of limitations in Florida for most personal injury cases is four years. That is a long time to make informed decisions about your life. Do not give a statement or sign any papers.
