About Lakeland, Florida

Located in Polk County, the city of Lakeland, Florida is situated along Interstate 4 between Tampa and Orlando. Lakeland is a key city in the Lakeland-Winter Haven metropolitan statistical area. This city, which has a 2012 estimated population of 99,999, is made up of about 100 neighborhoods. If you have suffered from a wrongful injury in or around Lakeland, our legal team can help you file a personal injury claim or lawsuit and fight for rightful compensation!

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?

According to Florida law you have four years to file a personal injury claim before the statute of limitations ends. If the statute of limitations ends before you file your personal injury claim you will lose you right to do so, effectively losing your right to recover compensation. There are some exceptions that can change this four-year time period so it’s important to speak to an attorney about your case as soon as you can.

Damages and Your Personal Injury Claim

While the specific amount of compensation you will be able to recover will depend on the specifics of your case the types of damages an injury victim can pursue generally remain the same. These types of damages are:

  • Economic damages
  • Non-economic damages
  • Punitive damages

Economic damages compensates for financial losses injury victims suffer, like medical expenses or missed wages. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, compensates for more abstract, non-financial suffering. This includes pain and suffering and mental anguish. Punitive damages differ from the first two in that their main purpose is to punish the negligent party instead of compensating the injury victim. Punitive damages are not awarded as often as economic and non-economic damages.
