Medical Malpractice in Boca Raton Representation for Palm Beach County

Being harmed by the people you trust to make you better isn't fair. It isn't right—but what's worse is that doctors and hospitals don't take responsibility for their mistakes. They deflect, deceive, or cover-up the damage they cause, leaving patients without answers or relief. That's why our lawyers founded Somera & Silva, LLP. Patients deserve answers and compesation—and if possible, they deserve them publicly. That is the one truth that guides our firm.

File Your Claim Today

Every state has a “statute of limitations” stating when an injury victim must file a claim before they lose their right to recover compensation. According to the Florida Statutes section 95.11(3)(a), the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Florida is four years. This means you have four years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you will lose your right to recover compensation. Florida does have some exceptions to this four-year rule, an attorney from our firm will be able to tell you if you qualify for any of them. Contact us today!

Recoverable Damages in a Personal Injury Case

The three types of damages available for injury victims are economic, non-economic, and punitive damages. Each of these damages seeks to compensate the injured party for a different loss. How many of these damages you will be eligible to recover for depends on the specifics of your case.

Economic damages, also called special damages, are responsible for compensating the injured party for any financial losses associated with suffering an injury such as medical bills, future medical expenses, or lost wages. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, compensate for non-tangible losses such as pain and suffering or mental anguish. Non-economic damages are also called general damages because they compensate for losses that are not easily quantifiable. The purpose of punitive damages differs from the first two, in that their goal is to punish the at-fault party for their negligent behavior. As such punitive damages are not often awarded in personal injury cases.
