Understandably, when you’re wronged, you need to know your legal options. In this context, many people discuss filing a personal injury lawsuit. In Lee County Florida, where my practice is based, I get asked about claims and lawsuits every working day. I represent people from throughout Southwest Florida, including Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Estero, Lehigh Acres, North Myers, Fort Myers Beach, Bonita Springs, and nearby communities.
Because I’m a trial lawyer and Fort Myers personal injury attorney, I know injury claims and lawsuits inside and out. Moreover, this has come up thousands of times in my lawyer experience since 1995.
Whether Your Personal Injury Lawsuit is Wise Depends on Your Circumstances
We know you may already be in the personal injury lawsuit zone. This is fine, if your claim has merit. However, not all claims are worthy. In fact, many people consider filing claims before talking their circumstances through with counsel.
You see, any personal injury lawyer having decades experience files a personal injury lawsuit when a claim is strong. In reality, however, anyone can file a personal injury lawsuit. The real question is, should you?
For example, filing a personal injury lawsuit makes sense when you can prove your injury results from wrongdoing. For example, negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct. Accordingly, negligence—careless conduct—is a common basis for filing a personal injury lawsuit for compensation.
You Must Prove Your Claim in a Personal Injury Lawsuit
As ta plaintiff—the “I want to sue” party—you have the burden of proof. Accordingly, you must show, some person or company wrongly causes your injuries or damages.
Because a personal injury lawsuit is a civil case, your proof burden is greater weight of the evidence. Moreover, this is not a very challenging standard. Rather, this means “more likely than not” or “probably.” However, this doesn’t mean success is easy. Instead, proving your claim and winning your personal injury lawsuit is often a battle under Florida law.
Nevertheless, ask your yourself: are my damages (injuries) probably resulting from defendant’s negligent conduct? Because, if you can prove this, then you may be heading toward success.
To recovery money compensation, every injury claim in Florida requires you meet this evidence burden. If you cannot do so, then your claim won’t succeed.
