Personal Injury

Personal Injury is a general category of the law involving situations where someone is hurt or injured. It includes many different types of cases, including, but not limited to:

  • Brain injury
  • Car accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Negligent security
  • Nursing home negligence
  • Product liability
  • Slip and fall
  • Trucking accidents
  • Worker’s compensation
  • Wrongful death

A personal injury case has two main elements – liability and damages.


In Florida, a person or business has a legal duty to do things in a reasonable manner. The failure to act in a reasonable manner under the law is called “negligence”. If the negligence of a person or business causes injuries or losses to another person, they are liable for those losses.


Damages are the losses that result from injuries and harms caused by negligence. Personal injury damages fall into two main categories: economic damages and non-economic damages. Economic damages involve tangible monetary losses. Non-economic damages are intangible losses that are non-monetary in nature.

The following are some of the common types of economic and non-economic damages:

Economic Damages

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost earnings
  • Property damage

Non-Economic Damages

  • Injury
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental Anguish
  • Emotional Distress
  • Inconvenience
  • Loss of sexual relations with a spouse
  • Loss of the enjoyment of life
  • Loss of parental guidance
  • Loss of companionship
