Whenever you are considering filing a claim against another party in order to seek financial compensation for your losses, it is extremely important to work with an experienced Daytona Beach personal injury lawyer. An advocate at our firm can assess your case today and can get started on your claim.

What is Personal Injury Law in Daytona Beach?

Personal injury law is a relatively broad area of the law that allows an injury victim to file a claim in order to seek compensation for his or her losses. Personal injury claims are civil lawsuits. This means that the plaintiff is not attempting to hold the other party responsible under Florida criminal law after that person causes a serious or fatal accident, but rather is seeking financial compensation from the responsible party.

A large number of personal injury lawsuits are based on a theory of negligence. The theory of negligence allows an injury victim to hold another party accountable for injuries if that other party was negligent in any way. In other words, under a theory of negligence, a defendant need not have intended to cause harm. Rather, simple careless behavior that ultimately resulted in harm can be enough to hold a defendant accountable in a personal injury lawsuit.

Types of Personal Injury Cases Our Firm Handles in Daytona Beach

At The Pendas Law Firm, we routinely assist clients with many different types of personal injury lawsuits, including but not limited to the following:

Statute of Limitations in a Daytona Beach Personal Injury Lawsuit

Every case comes with a specific time window or “statute of limitations.” Under Florida law (Fla. Stat. § 95.11), the statute of limitations for most types of personal injury lawsuits is four (4) years. This means that a plaintiff has four years from the date she sustained her injuries to file a claim.

The “clock” on the statute of limitations usually begins “ticking” on the date that the plaintiff initially suffered the injury—whether that was the date of a car accident or a nursing home abuse incident. If a plaintiff fails to file a lawsuit before the clock on the statute of limitations runs out, the plaintiff can be barred from filing a lawsuit.
