Negligence in Naples Florida Personal Injury Cases

Naples Personal Injury Attorney Explains Negligence

A personal injury lawsuit is essentially a tort, a type of legal action which is brought against another person, business, company, or other party by the victim of wrongdoing. Unlike a criminal case, there is no requirement of proving that the defendant broke the law in causing the plaintiff to suffer, but in order to recover damages it is necessary to demonstrate that the defendant's negligence was the cause of the accident. There is an expectation that anyone in society will take reasonable precaution to avoid causing injury to others, and any failure to uphold this duty may serve as grounds for a personal injury claim.

Insurance companies generally represent the party that caused the accident. Because of this, insurance companies tend to place business interests ahead of the victim. Anyone employed by the insurance company is not on your side and not looking out for your interests. Their main objective is to reduce the amount of payment owed on claims. This often leads to aggressive immediate preparation by the insurance company to prove that their driver was either not at fault or even propose you were partially or fully responsible.

Thus, the sooner you contact us the sooner we are able to assemble the necessary witness statements and evidence to prepare the case in your best interests. Nobody has a crystal ball and can fully determine how their pain or injuries will resolve (if at all) in the future. By hiring us and protecting your interests, we will provide you the peace of mind in knowing that recovering medically is your only responsibility. Injuries which require medical treatment take considerable time to heal and doctor's visits (as well as associated therapy) can put a lot of strain on an otherwise busy schedule. If you believe that this may be true in your situation, contact an attorney at Pittman Law Firm, P.L. for a review of your case and to learn how much you may be entitled to receive in an accident settlement.

Common Examples of Negligence

When a motorist is texting on a cell phone, driving drunk or drugged, or is driving recklessly or aggressively, the victim of any car accident which results from such behavior will most likely have grounds to sue for negligence. Similarly, a property owner who fails to safeguard guests and patrons against environmental hazards about which he knew—or should have known—can often be held liable for injuries suffered in a slip and fall accident or other mishap occurring on the premises. The number of possible situations is endless, but we are prepared to represent you in any type of claim for damages.
