Helping Clients in Volusia County Seek the Compensation They Deserve

Being injured in an accident that was someone else’s fault is an unfortunately common occurrence. The good news is, there are laws in place to help you and your family through this difficult time. After you have been injured in an accident, the person responsible (or in most cases, their insurance provider) is liable for compensating you for the damages incurred. These may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income from time off work
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damage
  • And more

The insurance companies are sure to do whatever they can to pay you less than what you are truly owed for your injuries. The DeLand personal injury attorney of Williams Legal is here to help you fight for maximum compensation.

How Do I Know Who’s at Fault for an Accident?

Figuring out who’s responsible for an accident is not always easy. As a rule of thumb, you should never take responsibility for an accident until you have spoken with an attorney. There are many factors that can be investigated after an injury has occurred, and there are several parties that could have played a role in the pain you or your loved one has suffered.

The following are examples of accidents caused by another party’s negligence:

  • A driver running a red light or ignoring street signs
  • A product manufacturer releasing a defective product
  • Slipping and falling from a spill or other conditions on someone else’s property
  • Drugs that cause unintended side effects
  • A truck driver failing to adhere to local and/or federal trucking regulations
  • Nursing home staff neglecting residents

If you are unsure who is at fault for the accident, do not hesitate to reach out to our DeLand personal injury attorney. Attorney Douglas Williams is more than 20 years of experience and is prepared to answer your questions during a free consultation.

How Long Do I have to File a Personal Injury Case?

The statute of limitations for filing a personal injury case in Florida is four years from the date of the accident. If you are unable to file your case within this limit, the court will most likely dismiss it. Although the statute of limitations applies to most cases, it does not apply to all of them. There are some instances where the limitation will not apply -- for example, if you are in a situation where you the harm was not discovered until some time after the accident that cause it. To be sure that there will be an extension, speak with a skilled personal injury attorney in DeLand.
