Know your options after a personal injury occurs

Car accidents occur every day in America, especially in large metropolitan areas such as South Florida. Fortunately, most car accidents are minor fender-benders, usually resulting only in damage to the vehicles involved and not injuries to the people in the vehicles. But, unfortunately, there are many accidents that also result in severe injuries, and even death.

When injuries do occur in a car accident in South Florida, it may be necessary to pursue a personal injury lawsuit. In such a lawsuit, the injured party - the plaintiff - will usually need to prove that the other party - the defendant - had a duty that was breached, resulting in the accident and ensuing injuries. While this may seem fairly straightforward, sometimes it is anything but.

There can be a number of options in a personal injury lawsuit. Many cases are settled out of court, resolving the legal case before it gets too far into the litigation phase of the case. However, other cases may result in full-blown jury trials, necessitating the presentation of evidence that can include eyewitness testimony, physical objects, photographs and even testimony from the injured victim.

The reality is that, while car accidents are ubiquitous in America, each one will have a different and unique set of circumstances and facts. Some cases are stronger than others. But, in cases in which an individual has suffered an injury, it may be worth it to explore the validity of a potential personal injury claim.
