Family, friends, health and time. We value these things. When someone or something takes these things from us, it hurts. No one wakes up in the morning thinking they are going to be injured, but every day it happens. Sometimes the injury is minor or temporary. Other times, the injuries are more significant and permanent, or even result in the loss of someone we know. In each of these instances, something is taken. It may be your health or it may be the health of a family member or friend. Oftentimes, when health is taken, it is never fully restored.

Quick FAQs About
Q: I have been injured. How long do I have to bring a claim?A: Florida has various statute of limitations for bringing an injury claim. In short, a statute of limitation is a timeframe in which you must bring your injury claim. Failure to bring your claim in this specific period of time may result in being unable to file a lawsuit. The period of statute of limitations varies depending on how you were injured and/or the type of claim you are bringing.
As an example, if someone wanted to bring an action for injuries caused to them because someone else was negligent, the statute of limitations if 4 years. By contrast, if someone wanted to bring an action based on a written contract, the statute of limitations is 5 years.
Because the time frames can vary, it is very important that you contact an attorney to help assist you in bringing your claim as soon as possible.

Q: Who is responsible for my medical bills or lost wages?A: Injuries are stressful. Not only do injury victims have to deal with the ongoing physical pain caused by someone else, but oftentimes medical bills accumulate causing additional financial stress on the injury victim. Who is responsible for the payment of those medical bills is often one of the top concerns as medical bills continue to accumulate after an injury.
Generally speaking, the person or business who causes harm is responsible for medical bills and/or lost wages incurred as a result of that harm. This is considered part of the injury victim’s damages. However, this does not mean that the responsible party will pay medical bills or lost wages as they accumulate in real time. Instead, your own insurance may issue payment to your medical providers for your medical bills or to you directly for some of your lost wages. In regards to medical treatment, if you have no insurance, some doctors may treat you under what is called a “Letter of Protection.” A Letter of Protection is a promise by the injury victim to pay the doctor at a later date for treatment rendered to the injury victim. This makes the injury victim personally responsible for payment but allows the victim to receive the important treatment he or she may need.
Once you have reached a point where further treatment may no longer be beneficial or where you have reached “maximum medical improvement,” a claim for injuries will be made against the responsible party. Part of the injury victim’s damages will include the medical bills and/or lost wages incurred by the victim, as well as additional damages for pain and suffering or future damages. As such, while the at-fault party is ultimately responsible for the payment of medical bills, such damages are collected at the conclusion of your medical treatment.

Q: I am being contacted by insurance companies. What should I do?A: You should seek legal counsel immediately. Oftentimes, insurance companies will take advantage of injury victims who do not have attorneys. You need to remember that while insurance companies have great advertising, their business model is based on not paying claims or not paying the full value of claims. If you have been injured, you have rights and responsibilities. For instance, an insurance company may contact you after an injury to get your version of events. Depending on which insurance company contacts you, you may or may not have a duty to speak to them. However, where statements are given, many times being relayed under pressure and without the chance to fully think about it, they leave out critical details about the incident. Insurance companies will use this against you.
If you or a loved one have been injured because of someone else’s actions, contact Presser Law, P.A. before speaking with an insurance company. We will aggressively pursue your case and explore all issues of fault, causation and damages so that we can fight to bring you the justice you deserve.
