Personal Injury Lawyers Lake Worth, FL
The Devastating Effects of Serious Injuries
Your life or the life of a loved one can be altered in an instant when someone acts negligently and those actions lead to injuries. The utilities at your home could be shut off because you are unable to pay the bills due to the inability to work. You might struggle to put food on the table and you might not physically be able to care for your family anymore. The most severe injuries usually require surgery to repair them and then an extended amount of time going to physical therapy to regain range of motion or movement of the affected area of the body. Injuries caused by someone else’s negligence can prevent you from attending class, going to church, driving yourself around town, going to work and doing just about any other type of daily activity. You should not be responsible for the financial issues caused by a personal injury accident. That’s why you need to talk with a Lake Worth personal injury lawyer from the experienced and dedicated team of Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. We have been representing clients just like you for more than a decade in South Florida.
Establishing Liability for Injuries Due to Negligence in Lake Worth, FL
The law in Florida has established a threshold when it comes to personal injury lawsuits and whether or not they are permitted to proceed in court. The threshold in place helps to prevent lawsuits involving very minor injuries from clogging up the courts in Florida. A personal injury attorney from our team at Gonzalez & Cartwright, P.A. can look at your injury and medical reports in an effort to determine if the injury meets the threshold as defined by the law. Severe injuries aren’t categorized by the law, but there are some guidelines as to how the thresholds should be broken up in Florida and they are as follows:
- The permanent or significant loss of a bodily function
- Scarring that is permanent or any type of disfigurement
- Disability or any injuries deemed to be permanent
Looking at these four categories you might think that only the most tragic injuries will be allowed to go to court when a lawsuit is filed. It might seem that way, but for the most part the law permits any personal injury lawsuit to move forward if it involves a broken bone. The outcome of the injury will not matter, which means that even if your bones are going to heal, the lawsuit will still be permitted to be heard. So long as the injuries you suffer in a personal injury accident prevent you from going to work or prevent you from performing normal daily activities, the lawsuit will be permitted.
