Can I Wait to File a
Personal Injury Case?


Yes, you can delay filing a lawsuit, but that is not recommended. The statute of limitations in Florida to file a personal injury lawsuit is now only two years. Missing this deadline likely means you forever forfeit the chance to receive compensation for your personal injury. It is extremely important to contact the Moody Law legal team as soon as possible after an injury when facts are still fresh in your mind and in the memories of any witnesses who may have seen your injury occur.

Polk County Auto Collisions

As Lakeland continues to grow, you can expect more traffic coming in and out of the city. There's also the steady influx of tourists heading through Lakeland en route to Tampa and Orlando. More people means a higher risk of car accidents.

According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles (FLHSMV), Polk County had 13,493 auto accidents in 2022. These crashes caused 9,538 injuries and 131 fatalities.

Given the realities on the road and the changing face of Lakeland, it's important that you know who to turn to in case you or a loved one is involved in a car crash.

How to Win a Personal Injury Claim

Our personal injury lawyers will be with you every step of the way, and we won't advise you to take any deal unless it is your best possible outcome.
Our personal injury lawyers will be with you every step of the way, and we won't advise you to take any deal unless it is your best possible outcome.

Hire an Attorney

Personal injury law can be complex, and trying to build a case while also recovering from an injury can be unbearably stressful. To receive the greatest possible compensation for your injuries, trust your case to dedicated personal injury lawyers like the team at Moody Law in Lakeland, FL.

Collect Evidence

Evidence is what wins court cases and convinces insurance companies to pay what you are truly owed. Different case types have different types of relevant evidence, but you should try your best to keep track of all photographic evidence, medical records, police reports, or any other kind of documentation. When you hire our attorneys, we will help you acquire and preserve the evidence we need to win.

Consult With Experts

Expert testimony goes a long way in a personal injury case. After practicing personal injury law in Polk County for more than 30 years, Daniel D. Moody has developed an impressive network of experts in medical malpractice, traffic accidents, and more. He can call on these experts to help convince a jury that you deserve compensation.

Don't Settle for Less than the Best

When you are the victim of negligence, insurance companies will likely make a quick settlement offer that is worth far less than you deserve. They may not acknowledge responsibility at all. In order to receive enough compensation to adequately recover from an injury and put your life back together, you may need to take your case all the way to a jury trial. Our personal injury lawyers will be with you every step of the way, and we won't advise you to take any deal unless it is your best possible option.

Should I Settle or Go to Trial?

Personal injury claims can be settled out of court or go all the way to trial. There is no one right way to resolve a case, but there are some pros and cons our personal injury lawyers can help you consider.

Pre-Trial Settlement

The vast majority of personal injury cases are resolved outside of court. Settling before a trial avoids a long and expensive court battle. It also helps keep the details of your case confidential. However, public awareness and other compelling reasons may be good reasons to reject settlement offers and pursue a civil trial.

Civil Trial

During a civil trial, attorneys for each side will present evidence in court. The jury renders a verdict and awards legal damages. The damages awarded may be higher than the pre-trial settlement offer. However, there is no guarantee that you will receive the damages you're seeking. The jury might even rule against you.

Through their effort we received a fair settlement that was much greater than the lowball offer the insurance company initially presented which didnt even cover the associated medical bills. I just cannot speak highly enough of Mr. Moody and his dedicated staff of professionals.
