Recovering Compensation for Our Clients Hurt in Holiday
When our team files an insurance claim or goes to trial on a client’s behalf, we present strong evidence to show the defendant caused their injuries and is legally responsible for the harm they suffered. This includes not only their physical and emotional harm but also their financial damages.
To hold the negligent party accountable, we must value the case and recover fair and just compensation to ensure our client’s bills are paid and that they do not suffer lasting losses or financial stress as a result. This is the goal of the insurance claim or lawsuit in a Holiday personal injury case.
Recoverable damages in these cases vary but could include:
- Medical expenses, including treatment and related costs
- Future care and support expenses
- Lost wages and other income
- Reduced ability to earn because of long-term injuries
- Property damages
- Miscellaneous expenses

Negligence and Liability in a Holiday, FL, Personal Injury Case
Our skilled team of lawyers must prove negligence and liability when representing a client in a personal injury claim or civil suit in Holiday. Establishing that another party is legally responsible for your accident and injuries is critical in recovering compensation in your case.
Imagine you were hurt when a driver ran a red light on U.S. 19. We will need to show that the driver had an obligation to stop at the light, that they failed to do so, and that this caused your injuries. We know the necessary steps required to do this and will handle the investigation on your behalf.
Other examples of personal injuries could include:
- Auto accidents
- Medical malpractice and pharmacy malpractice
- Slip and falls
- Other premises liability incidents
- Nursing home abuse
- Wrongful death
To prove negligence and liability, we must confirm four things:
- The defendant had a duty to do or not do something.
- They failed to uphold their duty, putting our client in danger.
- Their failure led to an incident or accident that injured our client.
- Our client suffered physical, emotional, and financial harm and must be compensated for these damages.
While these cases usually settle outside of court – especially since the insurance companies know our firm will go to trial – we need to keep the filing deadlines for lawsuits in mind. There are also exceptions and certain circumstances that could alter these timelines.
In general, we have:
- Up to two years to file an injury lawsuit, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a)
- Up to two years to begin a wrongful death action, per Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d)
