Few things are worse than sustaining an injury in an accident due to no fault of your own. Unfortunately, serious accidents and injuries occur every single day here in the state of Florida, and if you are someone who has been hurt due to the negligence of another, you may feel unsure of where to turn or how to proceed. Fortunately, if you’re reading this, you’re right where you need to be. Contact a knowledgeable and dedicated Wesley Chapel personal injury lawyer from The Law Offices of Matthew J. Jowanna, P.A. today to learn more about how our legal team can help you fight for the full and fair compensation you which you are entitled.
The personal injury lawyer you choose is a big decision that should not be made by a random selection from the phone book or an internet search. The attorney section of the phone book is thick enough, and the personal injury attorney section is probably the thickest portion. Internet searches for personal injury attorneys will return thousands of results.
A lot of attorneys will say that they “practice” personal injury law. However, the most important factor may be what they mean by “practice.” Attorney Matthew J. Jowanna has handled thousands of personal injury cases since 1994 – from whiplash to brain injury to loss of limb to loss of life. If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence of others, please contact us today for a free, no-obligation personal injury evaluation and consultation. For those with a potential claim, we can usually accept these types of cases on a contingency fee basis – meaning that you pay nothing unless and until we recover money for you. NO RECOVERY = NO FEE.
We pride ourselves on helping clients who’ve been injured in a wide range of circumstances. The types of personal injury claims we handle include, but are not limited to:
We also proudly take cases involving all other types of auto accidents, construction site accidents, nursing home neglect and abuse and more.
As long as a person can satisfy the burden of proof in their personal injury claim, meaning they can prove they were injured as a direct result of another party’s actions, they should qualify for compensation. This compensation may help a person deal with the economic and non-economic damages they’ve incurred as a result of their accident.
Economic damages are meant to compensate a person for the actual cost of the injury they suffered. Because of this, they will compensate a person for things like lost wages from being unable to return to work, medical bills, property damage, funeral costs (in the case of wrongful death) and more.
On the other hand, non-economic damages are designed to compensate a person for intangible losses after an accident, such as emotional distress, pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, loss of consortium and humiliation.
It is important to understand that the state of Florida has a statute of limitations in place when it comes to personal injury claims. In Florida, the statute of limitations is, generally, two years, meaning you will have to take legal action within two years of the date of your accident or injury to maintain legal rights to damages. You should also understand that there are some exceptions to this rule, so it’s always best to simply speak with an attorney as soon after your accident as you can.
Don’t hire just any lawyer to represent you during this difficult time. Our compassionate legal team understands your plight, will listen to you and answer any questions you may have, and will, ultimately, be your number one advocate through each step of the process ahead. Not only is our goal to get you fully and fairly compensated for your injuries, but we also are here to get justice and ensure the party responsible for your injuries never hurts another person again.
