Injuries to Children

Each year, millions of children are injured or killed due to negligence, accidents, defective products, and fires. In most cases, anyone under 18 of age is not eligible to file a lawsuit. This means that when a child is injured or killed, it is a parent, adult or guardian who generally must seek legal assistance on behalf of the child. If you are the parent or guardian of a child who has been injured or killed, you are the person who can often get redress or assistance for that child.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do I have to bring a claim for my injury?

Florida Statutes section 95.11(3)(a) gives you four years, typically starting from the date of the underlying accident or incident, to file a civil lawsuit seeking a legal remedy (compensation) for "an action founded on negligence." That includes almost all conceivable types of personal injury lawsuits, since most are governed by the liability principle of "negligence".

 

What is Personal Injury Protection Insurance (PIP)?

PIP stands for Personal Injury Protection. It is an insurance policy in the state of Florida that allows you to be treated regardless of who was at fault.
