http://www.cullen-hemphill.com. Winter Park, Florida, personal injury attorney Kim Cullen discussed how Counterclaims work in the context of Florida personal injury cases.
If a person injured in a car accident gets sued by another driver involved in the same accident, the person who has been sued generally has the right to countersue the original Plaintiff if the original Defendant has suffered an injury.
Counterclaims or countersuits generally add an extra layer of a complexity to a personal injury case that doesn’t typically exist – mostly due to the fact that there are two, competing claims for damages.
If you have any questions about how Counterclaims work in Florida personal injury lawsuits, or if you have been sued arising out of an accident and don’t know what to do, call Florida attorneys Kim Cullen and Robert Hemphill at 407-254-4901.
