Recovering Compensation Based on Your New Port Richey Injuries
Our New Port Richey personal injury team will develop a strong argument to show that our client suffered physical, psychological, and financial harm because of an at-fault party’s actions. We use evidence and expert testimony to prove their case’s value and demand payment from an insurance company.
This often results in a fair settlement to conclude the case. This is even more likely for a renowned trial lawyer because insurers know we are willing and capable of taking a case to trial. This is one reason why we can settle these cases without suing.
Recoverable Damages for Current, Future Losses
A fair settlement includes compensation for various damages, including economic and non-economic losses suffered. Examples include:
- Medical bills and related expenses, both current and future
- Lost wages, benefits, and other income for time away from work
- Diminished earning ability if the client has long-term impairments
- Property damages
- Related costs
- Pain and suffering damages
- Other intangible losses

We manage wrongful death actions for families whose loved ones died from their personal injury accident, as well. This could allow surviving relatives to recover:

Understanding Personal Injuries in New Port Richey
A personal injury occurs when one party’s behavior hurts another person. This can happen in many ways. Some of the most common cases we manage include:
- Traffic collisions
- Truck crashes
- Medical malpractice
- Fall accidents
- Other premises liability injuries
- Nursing home abuse
- Wrongful death
To prove negligence in these cases, we must show:
- The other party acted carelessly or recklessly
- This caused our client’s injuries
- They suffered physical and financial harm
- The value of their case for damages
In some cases, this can be a fairly straightforward process. In others, we may need to utilize our network of experts, accident reconstruction specialists, doctors, and others to help us better understand what happened. We must have evidence to convince the insurer or the judge and jury that our client deserves compensation.
How Long do I Have to Sue the At-Fault Parties in My Pasco County Case?
Most personal injury cases in New Port Richey do not go to trial. Our team negotiates a settlement with an insurance company, and it compensates our client according to the agreement we arranged. We then take our contingency fees from this payout. However, we must ensure that insurers know we are serious about suing if necessary. We have the resources ready and will file the paperwork if needed to move the case forward for our client.
How Much is My Personal Injury Case Worth?
We have at least two years to begin this process, although some circumstances can alter the deadlines. In general, the statute of limitations on these cases is:
- Four years for a personal injury case (Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a))
- Two years for a wrongful death action (Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d))
