Like other tourist destinations, the appeal of Key West’s activities and adventures draws individuals from across the country to this tiny island community. Whenever large numbers of individuals are confined in a small space, it is easy for personal injury accidents like car wrecks, slips and falls, motorbike, bicycle and premises liability accident may occur and cause innocent victims, both residents and tourists, to suffer life altering serious personal injuries.

You are not alone if you or a family member find yourself injured while residing in or visiting Key West. The Law Offices of Joseph I. Lipsky may be able to assist you in recovering compensation for your injuries and losses and taking steps to regain control of your life.

Components of a Successful Key West Personal Injury Lawsuit

Florida law allows individuals who are hurt or who experience some form of loss because of another person’s carelessness or reckless behavior to recover financial compensation from that person to address the injury victim’s medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering. In order to be entitled to a recovery of this nature, the injury victim must show:

  • Another person, the “defendant,” owed a duty of care to the injury victim. The “duty of care” may be thought of as a legal obligation to behave in a certain reasonable and careful way.
  • The defendant breached the duty of care by acting in a careless manner or behaving in a negligent or reckless way.
  • The defendant’s breach is the proximate cause of the injury victim’s losses. That is, the defendant’s behavior must be the reason (or, at least, a reason) that the victim suffered the injuries he or she did. Even if the injury victim also behaved carelessly, the victim may still be able to recover some compensation from another party who also behaved carelessly.
  • Finally, the injury victim has an obligation to establish that his or her injuries can be compensated with an award of monetary damages and what amount of such damages is necessary to fully compensate the injury victim.

Failing to establish any one of these elements can result in the dismissal of the victim’s claim and a denial of compensation regardless of how serious the victim’s injuries are or the expenses he or she experienced as a result of those injuries.
