Do I Have a Clearwater Personal Injury Case?

It might be one of the first questions you have after getting into the accident: do I have a case?

You might have a personal injury case if:

  • You were injured because someone else was negligent (e.g., struck by a distracted driver)
  • Someone else intentionally hurt you (e.g., assaulted at a local bar)
  • A defective or dangerous product contributed to your injury (e.g., a medical device didn’t work properly)
  • You were injured on the job (e.g., struck by a piece of equipment on a construction site)
  • You were attacked by a dog, or
  • You got hurt one someone else’s property (e.g., a slip and fall accident).

If you can prove that you got hurt because of something another person did, you might have a legitimate case for damages.

Contact our accident injury attorneys to discuss your situation today. We’ll help you understand your rights and, if you have a case, we can move forward to seek full compensation for your injuries.

We’ll Stand Up For You

Can I Still Recover Compensation in Clearwater If I’m Being Blamed?

Call Us at (727) 796-8282

Florida has pure comparative negligence rules. So, you can still get money for your injuries after an accident, but your financial award will be reduced if you’re assigned some of the blame. Insurance companies and negligent parties will try to shift as much of the blame for an accident to you as they can. If you do nothing, you could watch your compensation dwindle – or disappear altogether.

Our accident attorneys in Clearwater know insurance company strategies like this all too well. We’ll be prepared with evidence that can disprove these claims or, at the very least, minimize how much fault is ultimately assigned to you. The less fault you share, the higher your take-home award can be.

What’s My Personal Injury Case Worth in Clearwater?

Clearwater Injury Attorney Matthew Noyes and Client

Every case is different. Ultimately, the value of your personal injury case will depend on answers to questions about your injury (or injuries) and life after your accident.

  • What types of injuries have you sustained, and how severe are they?
  • Has your ability to earn an income changed because of your accident? 
  • What out-of-pocket costs have you incurred? What future costs will you likely have?
  • What kind of emotional toll have the accident and your injuries taken?

Generally, the more serious the injuries and more extensive the trauma, the higher a related personal injury case will be worth.

At Perenich, Caulfield, Avril & Noyes Personal Injury Lawyers, our Clearwater personal injury lawyers have successfully obtained more than $675 Million (and counting) on behalf of our clients. We’re able to get top results for our clients consistently – and we’ll put our tried-and-true strategies to work to help you get every last dollar you deserve.

Mark Perenich Personal Injury Attorney and Team Clearwater, FL

What Damages Are Available After an Accident in Clearwater?

After an accident in Florida, you’re typically entitled to seek both economic and non-economic damages. 

Economic damages are awarded to make up for your out-of-pocket expenses and injury-related costs like medical bills, disability, rehabilitation and therapy, or funeral expenses if an accident is fatal. 

Non-economic damages are paid to compensate for the consequences of an accident that don’t have a set value or cost. Think pain and suffering, emotional distress, mental anguish, and loss of consortium.

Our lawyers have won hundreds of millions of dollars for injury victims and families throughout the greater Clearwater area. Time and time again, we’re able to help our clients win by making sure that we identify all damages a client should be entitled to under Florida state law and work with leading experts to ensure we understand the full present and future value of each and every one.
