Decades of Experience Litigating Personal Injury Cases in Tallahassee, FL

At Farah & Farah, we’ve been fighting for accident victims and families in Florida since 1979. That type of experience matters when dealing with often complex personal injury cases.  

Many people try to pursue damages without the aid of an attorney, but this can be a big mistake. Corporate lawyers and insurance companies try to avoid paying claims to injured parties. Personal injury cases sometimes devolve into finger-pointing before even reaching court as defendants try to avoid accountability for their actions.  

Sometimes, insurance companies offer quick settlements. Taking one is not always in your best interest, as you may not yet know the full extent of your injuries and how they will affect your ability to return to work. The decision to accept a settlement is yours, but our personal injury attorneys can advise you based on the outcomes of thousands of previous cases. 

Our personal injury attorneys at Farah & Farah have deep knowledge of Florida law and procedure. They have tried and true strategies to establish the key elements and obtain compensation, whether at the negotiation table or in the courtroom. 

Florida Comparative Fault Law  

Farah & Farah’s skilled Tallahassee personal injury attorneys can explain how Florida’s modified comparative fault law applies to your case. That measure prevents you from recovering damages if you are more than 50 percent responsible for your injuries. However, you can recover damages if you are 50 percent or less to blame. In that case, your damages will be reduced in proportion to your share of the blame.  

For example, if your damages are $100,000 and your fault is 20 percent, you can collect 80 percent or $80,000. Because of this standard, the other party will try to argue that your harm is mostly your fault. We will stand up to claims that you don’t deserve compensation. 

You Don’t Have to Accept Blame for a Car Accident That Wasn’t Your Fault

If law enforcement found you at fault for an automobile accident, the insurance company will likely refuse to pay your full claim value or deny your claim altogether. However, a police report isn’t evidence of fault. Even a traffic ticket is inadmissible in court as evidence of fault in car accident claims. The information police rely on when determining fault and issuing tickets is preliminary at best.

Police lack the time and resources to perform a detailed forensic investigation. Their goal is to draw a conclusion–any conclusion–and quickly move on to their next call. In many cases, the insurance company will perform its own forensic investigation in hopes of clearing the insured driver of fault or finding more fault with you. 

When you choose our dedicated Tallahassee personal injury lawyers, you’ll have a legal team on your side with the resources to perform a full-blown accident reconstruction. We’ll leave no stone unturned to clear you of fault and restore your right to your full financial compensation. We’ll interview eyewitnesses, review camera surveillance footage, download the black box data, and gather hard evidence to prove you’re less than 51 percent at fault.  Contact us today for a free consultation.

Florida Personal Injury Statute of Limitations  

Florida’s personal injury statute of limitations sets the deadline for filing suit. Under that law, you have two years to file your Florida personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. If you fail to file on time, a judge will likely dismiss your claim, regardless of fault and damages. There are some exceptions to the statute of limitations, but you cannot count on a judge granting you an extension. 

This deadline provides a short time to collect the necessary evidence and build a strong personal injury case. You deserve support and a chance for justice following an injury that was someone else’s fault. At Farah & Farah, we work together as a team, pooling our knowledge and resources to give our clients quality representation. Put Team Farah’s decades of experience to work for you.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

At Farah & Farah, we have extensive experience representing clients in all types of personal injury cases, including the following: 

No matter how you get hurt, our personal injury attorneys in Tallahassee can fight to make things right. We’ll use our extensive experience to pursue your compensation so you can focus on recovering.

What Damages Can I Get If I've Been Injured in a Tallahassee Accident?

While there are some exceptions, such as cases involving workers’ compensation and Social Security Disability, in most personal injury claims or lawsuits, you can seek an award of compensatory damages.  

Compensatory damages encompass economic damages to cover all of the out-of-pocket or more easily calculated losses you have and non-economic damages to cover the less tangible ways you suffered because of the accident.   

  • Amounts paid for current medical treatment  
  • Future medical expenses  
  • Reduced earning capacity  
  • Lost wages and income  
  • Property damage  
  • Nursing care  
  • Funeral expenses  
  • Reduced quality of life  
  • Emotional distress  
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder 
  • Pain and suffering  
  • Chronic physical pain  

Punitive damages may also be awarded in a limited number of personal injury cases. However, there must be clear and convincing evidence of intentional misconduct or gross negligence in these situations.   

You might see punitive damages awarded in cases involving hit-and-run car accidents, car accidents in Tallahassee involving extremely drunk drivers, product liability matters where a company intentionally concealed hazards from its consumers, and gross acts of medical negligence.

What Do I Have To Prove To Win a Personal Injury Case in Tallahassee?

Most personal injury cases in Tallahassee are based on a negligence theory. Negligence refers to a failure to use reasonable care, leading to an injury or death.  

When you bring an insurance claim or lawsuit based on negligence, you will have to prove each of the following elements:  

  • Duty of Care: The defendant owed you a duty of care to act reasonably safely under the given circumstances.   
  • Breach of Duty: The defendant breached this duty of care by failing to act as safely as a reasonable person would in the same situation.  
  • Causation: The defendant’s conduct was the actual and proximate cause of the accident that caused your injury.   
  • Damages: You’ve suffered injury or losses due to the accident.   

Our team of injury lawyers in Tallahassee can explain how these elements apply to the specific circumstances of your case. We can help you build the evidence to prove each element and get fair compensation for your injuries.
