You May Be Entitled to a Legal Remedy
In general, people owe a duty to use reasonable care to avoid harming others. This general duty is legally recognized by courts throughout the country, including Florida. When someone breaches that duty and injuries another person, they are legally responsible for compensating the injured party for the losses they sustained as a result. It would be unjust if someone had to bear the responsibility of physically, emotionally, and financially recovering from an injury that was someone else’s fault.
