  • 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 on someone else’s property (e.g., a slip and fall accident).

You might have a legitimate case for damages if you prove that you got hurt because someone else was negligent.

Can I Still Recover Compensation in St. Petersburg If I’m Partly At-Fault ?

We’ll Stand Up For You

Can I Still Recover Compensation in St. Petersburg If I’m Partly At-Fault ?

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 will try to take advantage of the fact that they have a lot of experience handling these claims.

We understand the frustration that injury victims feel, particularly when faced with insurance companies and other opponents who seek to delay, minimize, or deny their claims. Our St. Petersburg injury lawyers will be prepared with evidence that can disprove these claims or, at the very least, minimize how much fault is ultimately assigned to you. Contact our St. Petersburg injury lawyers today for help.

What’s My Personal Injury Case Worth in St. Petersburg?

St. Petersburg, FL Personal Injury Attorney

The National Safety Council suggests that the comprehensive cost of a car accident injury can range anywhere between $51,000 (no injury observed) and $1,219,000 (disabling injury). But, keep in mind that every case is very different.

Ultimately, the value of your insurance claim or lawsuit will depend on several different factors.

  • How serious are your injuries?
  • What kind of medical treatment will you need?
  • How long will it take for you to recover?
  • Will you lose income because you’re unable to work?
  • Will you be disabled – temporarily or permanently?
  • How have you been affected emotionally?
  • What will it cost to replace or repair property damage?

These are just a few of the questions that will need to be answered before you can get a better idea of what your case might be worth. Our personal injury attorneys in St. Petersburg have the experience and resources necessary to value your claim and get you every cent you deserve.

Personal Injury Accident in St. Petersburg

What Compensation Can I Get If I’ve Been Hurt in an Accident in St. Petersburg, FL ?

In Florida, accident victims are typically able to ask for two distinct types of compensation after getting hurt: economic damages and non-economic damages.

Economic damages are paid to make you financially whole again after an accident or injury.

This includes money for things like:

  • Medical expenses (present and future)
  • Lost wages and income
  • Disability
  • Funeral expenses and burial costs, if an accident is fatal.

Non-Economic damages are paid to compensate for injuries that don’t have a set financial value. Rather, they’re highly subjective and personal to you.

Commonly awarded non-economic awards include money for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • PTSD and depression
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of enjoyment or quality of life

In limited instances – like after a drunk driving accident – punitive damages might be available. These are awarded solely to punish the defendant for conduct that was intentionally harmful or grossly negligent
