Legal Trends in Personal Injury Law

It’s important to understand that personal injury law is a constantly changing field of expertise. There may be a variety of causes that might lead a case to be categorized as such. This means that the entire division of personal injury is regulated by an abundance of legal clauses and provisions and as such they are constantly changing to fit the demands of modern day society.

One of the latest trends is related to social media and the way that it influences personal injury cases. The fact is that the majority on people who are on social media are mostly there to share different aspects on their lives with close friends and family. The reality is that social media can very well be used against you. You have to be extremely careful as to what you share on the media because it could be used as evidence against you.

Nevertheless, workers’ compensation claims have also taken a considerable hit in the state of Florida for the last few years. There is also a tendency for the insurance companies to start shifting towards personal injury law as opposed to their previously taken no-fault status. The main reason for this is that this particular plan which aims to minimize the exposure of insurance companies might as well easily backfire. The state of Florida is currently ravaged by different fraudulent personal injury claims which aim to collect funds that are actually not due.

Individual claims

However, as far as individual claims go, most of the insurance companies tend to be rather intimidating towards claimants and their physicians, relying on the fact that they won’t go so far to actually examine the actual science behind the trauma. Therefore most of the typical ways for intimidation tend to be rather successful. However, with a good lawyer representing the victim, tables can turn quickly.

At the same time there has been a recent debate on whether or not personal injury should be relevant division of the law as opposed to tort law. The prevailing opinion still remains that personal injury is a necessary fragmentation of tort law and as such it should remain intact. The reason for this once again lies within the variety of causes. The magistrates of Florida tend to believe that these potential case merits should be enveloped in a particular area in order to keep things concise and compiled.

Legal Protection

The alternative is not preferable as it would allow a wide subjection of the particular area which would inevitably lead to improper legal protection as well as inadequate representation. Even though it may cost the corporate niche quite some funds, personal injury law is absolutely mandatory when it comes to protecting people’s personal rights. It’s something that should remain intact, as it is believed by the majority of magistrates.
