If I Win My Florida Truck Accident Case, How Long Does it Take to Get My money?

They could be right away, but what if they appeal the case? An appeal can last six months, a year, a year and a half. What if it goes from an appellate court to the Florida Supreme Court? It could be another year or two. What if there’s no insurance, and your lawyers trying to get money from a company? What if the company goes bankrupt. Usually after winning a case, I would say rule of thumb one to two years.

The employer is responsible for any negligence of their drivers. The driver, himself or herself, is also responsible, along with their insurance company. It’s also possible that if they’re driving for another company, that that company can also be responsible.

Who Can Be Sued in a Florida Truck Accident Case?

Of course, the driver of the truck can be sued. The owner of the truck can be sued. The company that hired the truck, if different from the owner, can be sued. Your uninsured motorist insurance can be put in the driver’s seat, and if there’s not adequate insurance, they can be sued. So there are many parties that can be sued, and it’s fact-dependent. There are potentially other parties as well, but these are the main parties that can be sued.

Who can be sued in a Florida slip and fall case?

It depends where you slip and fall. If it’s an in-store case and another customer caused something to fall down, you can sue that customer. You can sue an employee and the employee is working for the store, you can sue the store. If you slipped and fall on an ingress-egress point you can sue the owner of a mall. You can sue the owner of the premises, not just the tenant. You may also be able to sue the tenant. Depends where you slipped and fell and that determines who might be responsible.

Who Determines Who is At Fault for a Florida Car Accident?

Well, the parties can agree who is at fault. This sometimes happens, it really does. Witnesses can determine who is at fault, but if there’s a dispute, especially a dispute with the at-fault driver’s insurance company, the only one that can help you is your lawyer, and the only way this lawyer can help you is to get concessions from the insurance company for the at-fault driver. If this doesn’t work, you must file a lawsuit and the court will determine, or the jury ultimately will determine if this case goes to a jury.

Who Can I Sue in Florida if I Was Injured While Visiting or Walking by a Construction Site?

The land owner may be responsible if you fell in a hole or object that was not readily seen or there was an uneven pavement. The contractor working on the construction site maybe liable. Any subcontractor maybe liable if they put something on the construction site that injured you, or something fell off. The person or company that had control of that object may well be responsible. There are many people that are responsible to an innocent victim walking by a construction site.

Will my Florida Medical Malpractice Case Settle Out of Court?

Statistically, if you have a viable legitimate case with serious injuries, I think approximately 50 to 60% settle out of court. Now, by out of court, you mean without filing a lawsuit, without going through certain court procedures, then the percentage is a lot less.

If you’re talking about cases that settle but do not go to jury trial but settle up to the courthouse steps, then the majority of cases with serious damages that are legitimate cases do settle. Some of your most serious cases do not settle. Some of your most serious cases are offered money, but not appropriate money. That’s between you and your lawyer. That’s why you should always go to a lawyer as soon as possible.

Will it Cost Me Any Money to Bring a Florida Slip and Fall Case?

Most lawyers that do slip and fall cases and all negligence cases do it on a contingency. That is, they take a percentage of the amount of money that is recovered. Most lawyers will advance costs and get the costs back. Of course, your costs come from your share of the settlement or recovery. In that sense, it won’t cost you to file the case, but that’s down the line and that’s to be consulted with the attorney that you hire.

Who Pays For My Injuries If I am Injured In a Florida Car Accident?

If the person responsible for the accident has insurance or the owner of the vehicle, if that was not the same as the driver, their insurance company should be responsible for your injuries.

Will my Florida Auto Accident Case Be Affected Because I Gave a Recorded Statement to The Other Driver’s Insurance Company?

You should never do that. Of course it can be affected. The person taking your statement is a professional and their job is to minimize your damages. For example, how are you feeling? “I’m feeling fine,” people say, wanting to be friendly. That will be played back and haunt you forever, so never do that.
