Our Personal Injury Case Areas of Practice

Preparing Your Plant City Personal Injury Case

Not every case is the same. However, some general things must be done to preserve your rights and help you obtain your maximum compensation.

In handling your claim, our Plant City personal injury attorneys may do a few of the following things:

Investigate Your Case

As soon as you retain our service, we get right to work investigating your case. This may include talking to witnesses and gathering evidence. An experienced personal injury attorney will also visit the scene of the wrongdoing, talk with friends and family members, gather medical evidence, and consult with experts to ensure that we have the full picture of the event as it happened.

Assess the Medical Side

In a personal injury case, the injured person must prove the accident was the cause of their injuries. At first glance, that may sound simple.  However, insurance companies and corporate defendants fight tooth and nail to minimize injuries and push medical bills back toward the victims. They may also try to prove that your injuries were there all along.

Work with Medical Experts

It may be necessary to explain these injuries. Our Plant City personal injury lawyers work with some of the top experts in and around the state of Florida. We will spare no expense to make sure you have the best medical experts on your side.

Damages You May be Entitled to

Our personal injury law firm is here to help you get all of the reimbursement you are legally entitled to. The kinds of damages you may be eligible for will depend on the specifics of your case, including the extent of your injuries and how they’ll impact your life now and in the foreseeable future. 

In Florida, you are allowed to claim certain types of damages, including:

Medical Expenses

You may be able to recover all medical expenses you incurred as a result of the injuries from your accident. You are also entitled to those which are expected to be incurred in the future.

Lost Wages

You may be entitled to compensation if you miss work as a result of your accident.  If you are unable to work in the same capacity as you were before the accident, you may be also entitled to ongoing compensation.

Human Damages

Accident and personal injury victims can suffer a variety of human damages. These may occur in the form of pain and suffering, mental anguish, loss of the capacity to enjoy life, and inconvenience. The Plant City personal injury lawyers from KFB Law can help you understand these damages so we can work together to help you get proper compensation.

Some other common types of damages include:

  • Funeral expenses (in wrongful death cases)

Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do after an accident in Plant City?

After a slip and fall accident or a bike, truck, or auto accident, the first thing to do is seek medical attention even if you feel okay. A doctor can help determine if there’s any hidden damage and document the extent of your injuries.

After you’re safe, give us a call. We can advise you on the next steps, as well as start gathering evidence and putting your case together. The faster we can act, the sooner you can get the compensation you deserve.

I slipped and fell on a public property in Plant City. Do I have a case? 

Slip and fall cases depend on proving negligence. If the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition and failed to address it, you might have a case. Document the scene, report the incident, seek medical attention, and consult with a personal injury lawyer to evaluate your situation.

What if I can’t afford a personal injury attorney?

With KFB Law, your first case consultation with us is always free. Our goal is to get Plant City families the justice they deserve—so we don’t charge you a penny unless we win your case.

If we do win your case, we’ll accept a fee based on a percentage of what we recovered for you. If you have any questions about costs or your case’s value, just ask your KFB Law team. We want to ensure you understand every part of the process.

How long do I have to file a case in Florida?

In Florida, the statute of limitations for most negligence cases is 4 years. That means you have up to 4 years after your accident to file a lawsuit and claim the compensation you deserve.

However, medical malpractice cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years–but the “clock” doesn’t start until a patient discovers that their medical condition is a result of malpractice. An example of this might be a surgeon who leaves behind a surgical instrument in a patient’s body that isn’t detected right away. 

What if I was partly at fault for my accident?

Even if you feel you were somewhat responsible for your accident, you should still contact a personal injury attorney.

That’s because in Florida, being partially responsible doesn’t eliminate your chances of receiving compensation as it does in some other states. According to Florida Statute 768.81, you won’t be eligible for full damages if you’re found partially liable for an accident, but you still may receive some compensation depending on just how ‘at fault’ the courts find you.

Who pays for my medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages after an accident?

In Florida, personal injury protection (PIP) insurance may cover initial medical expenses up to a limit, regardless of who’s at fault. However, for more serious injuries, you may need to pursue compensation from the at-fault party’s insurance or through a personal injury lawsuit. A lawyer can help navigate these options to ensure your medical bills are covered.  

Will my case go to court?

Most Plant City personal injury cases do not go to court right away. Ideally, we want to save our clients the potential stress and time involved in a lawsuit if there is a reasonable chance to negotiate a settlement outside of court. 

That being said, your lawyer should have the experience and strength to recommend a lawsuit if that is the best course of action and the skills to represent you through trial.
