Victims Have Rights

St. Petersburg Injury Lawyers

When you have suffered needless or unnecessary injury, you have been the victim of someone else's negligence or irresponsibility. The laws in our country were created to protect our rights and to hold negligent parties responsible for their actions. As a victim of a personal injury accident, you can seek justice and defend your rights to compensation through a personal injury claim. The legal team of injury attorneys at LeavenLaw is strong advocates for justice and will aggressively defend the rights of personal injury victims.

While you have the right to file a personal injury claim, you must file the claim within a certain time limit or your right to sue will be lost forever. Every state has enacted their own laws regarding this Statute of Limitations, and the state of Florida gives the victim 4 years to file a claim from the time of the accident. There are certain situations where the Discovery of Harm rule will apply to a personal injury case. For example, if a doctor made a mistake during surgery and the error was not discovered for several years, the victim of medical malpractice will still be able to file a claim because the statute of limitations begins when the injury is discovered. Special time limits also exist for a claim that is being filed against the government.
