Winter Haven Personal Injury Lawyer

A personal injury accident can leave the victim struggling with physical injuries as well as emotional trauma, while the financial implications of those injuries make the situation worse.

Attorney Adam Kemp is dedicated to helping injured victims and surviving family members seek justice for the injuries and trauma caused by a personal injury accident.

If you or a loved one were injured in a Winter Haven personal injury accident, it can wreak havoc on your entire life.

What Is a Winter Haven Personal Injury Case?

Although the term “personal injury accident” is part of our everyday lexicon, the law differentiates between true accidents and injuries caused due to fault on the part of another person or entity. When injuries could have been prevented, an accident was not a true accident. When that is the case, the law allows the injured victim, or surviving family members when injuries were fatal, to pursue legal action against the at-fault party or parties. The law recognizes three ways in which a party may be held legally liable for injuries to your person or property:

  • Intentional conduct: Intentionally wrong conduct that results in injury can be the basis for a personal injury lawsuit. For example, if someone assaults you, you can hold them responsible for your injuries through a civil personal injury lawsuit in addition to any criminal action taken by the State.
  • Strict liability. Strict liability holds a party responsible for injuries without the need to prove any negligent or wrongful conduct. A dog owner, for instance, can be held liable for injuries caused in a dog bite case just because he/she is the owner of the dog.
  • Negligence. Most personal injury accident cases are based on negligence. Negligence requires an injured victim to prove four things:
  • That the defendant owed a duty of care to the victim.
  • That the defendant breached the duty of care.
  • That the breach caused injury.
  • Damages.

While a personal injury accident can occur under a wide variety of circumstances, there are some common scenarios that result in actionable personal injury lawsuit cases, such as:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Defective products
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Medical errors
  • Premises liability accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Nursing home negligence
  • Wrongful death

What Compensation Might Be Available in a Winter Haven Personal Injury Accident Case?

When another person or entity causes or contributes to a personal injury accident, the law affords a victim the ability to hold the at-fault party accountable through a personal injury lawsuit. As part of a personal injury lawsuit, an injured victim may be entitled to recover both economic and non-economic damages which can include compensation for things such as:

  • Medical and hospital expenses
  • Rehabilitation and other care costs
  • Lost income – both past and future
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering
  • Diminished quality of life

If you lost a spouse, parent, or child in a fatal personal injury accident, compensation may be awarded for things such as the loss of companionship, care, and support and the loss of future earnings.
