To help us win your case, it is important to give us some important details of the incident. Note down all details regarding the occurrence of the injury and include names, addresses, numbers, witnesses and all possible information you can gather. Don’t make or write any statements without speaking to us first. Safe guard any evidence you may come across, to prove your injury. In order to make an injury claim, we must prove the other person guilty of negligence resulting in personal injuries. If your carelessness is proved then the compensation amount is reduced in proportion to your carelessness. This rule is stated under the Florida comparative negligence law. The Florida’s joint and several liability rule places legal responsibility of paying for the damages incurred by you. If the condition arises that you have been injured using a consumer product, then according to the “strict liability” legal theory, the product can be held responsible and you need to pass on all information to prove that point.
