Dania Personal Injury Attorney

Dania Beach is a Broward County, Florida city with a resident population of just under 30,000. Dania Beach houses one of the largest jai alai frontons in America at a casino located within the city. The city was formerly the location of two famous amusement centers, including one that was featured in Thumbelina. With year-round beach weather and being part of the South Florida metropolitan area, Dania Beach is full of residents and visitors alike all of whom are at risk of suffering a personal injury in an accident caused by another’s negligence or carelessness.

What to Expect From a Personal Injury Case

While each personal injury case is as unique as the facts surrounding the accident, there is a general process that you can expect in your Dania personal injury lawsuit. This includes:

  • Your initial case evaluation: Before taking your case, a Dania personal injury attorney will ask you a long list of questions about your injury, the circumstances around the accident that caused your injuries, details about any necessary and ongoing medical treatment, information about any other people involved, and whether there were any eyewitnesses to the incident. In addition to these details, legal fees and possible costs anticipated will also be discussed;

  • Initiating the lawsuit: Your lawyer will file pleadings (these are the legal documents filed with the court) and serve the defendant(s) the lawsuit. Once the defendant receives a summons (or notice) from the court, several legal writings (known as motions) will be filed with the court by all parties involved in the case;

  • Discovery phase: Likely the most contentious part of the litigation process, this investigative stage of the lawsuit may involve written discovery, requests for document production and/or depositions of individuals;

  • Motions before going to trial: Referred to as “pre-trial motions,” this is an opportunity for the case to end before it gets in front of a judge and/or jury. Some pre-trial motions include dismissals, summary judgment, and default judgment among others;

  • Settlement negotiations: Well documented statistics show the majority of lawsuits never make it to trial, as settlement is faster and less costly for all parties;

  • The trial: In a courtroom, each side is given the opportunity to present its best case. After all parties have presented their arguments and allowed to refute the other side’s allegations, a judge and/or a jury decides how much (if any) should be awarded and who is responsible for paying;

  • Collecting the award: When and if a case is won by a personal injury victim, the court issues a judgment against the losing party. It is important to keep in mind that the party awarded damages bears the burden of going after and and successfully collecting the damages owed;

  • Appealing to a higher court: Under state and federal most decisions by state and federal courts are subject to judicial review for any errors of law.
