How Can Our Panama City Lawyers Help?
Navigating the legal intricacies of personal injury law can be immensely challenging, especially when dealing with the physical, financial, and emotional burdens of a recent injury. If you were injured due to someone else's negligence in Panama City, seeking sound counsel from a trusted legal representative is imperative to avoid common legal pitfalls and pursue full damages under the law.
Our dedicated lawyers at Perry & Young, P.A. are proud to offer high-quality representation to individuals and families in their times of need. When you choose to partner with us, we can assist with:
- Filing your claim: Our attorneys can ensure you have a thorough understanding of the legal options available to you and guide your steps accordingly to file your claim correctly and on time.
- Presenting compelling evidence: In personal injury lawsuits, the injured party ("plaintiff") bears the burden of proving negligence on the part of the offending party ("defendant"). Our seasoned lawyers can help fortify your claims with relevant evidence to present your argument as compellingly as possible.
- Minimizing unnecessary time and costs: Time-consuming litigation and accruing legal fees aren’t ideal for someone recovering from an accident. Clients can trust our attorneys to keep conflict and costs to a minimum when possible and review each case with a practiced legal eye to determine if it can be settled out of court or if pursuing litigation is necessary to achieve a fair settlement.
- Negotiating with insurers: Our personal injury lawyers are effective negotiators, empowering them to protect your rights against large and powerful entities who may seek to take advantage (e.g., insurers offering lowballed settlements).

This law office was wonderful, and they explained everything in detail, which made the process a pleasant experience. The legal team kept me informed throughout this process.

They are very friendly group of individuals and are always willing to help EVERYONE in their surrounding community!- Charlize R.
Perry & Young Law Firm represented me with my discrimination case. Mrs. Jeanetta Brown conducted my intake and was a great pleasure to work with! From the beginning of initial contact to the end of my settlement, they treated me like family. The defendants wanted to treat me as a nuance, but my Perry & Young Law Firm didn’t treat me as such and made sure I was fairly compensated. I appreciate their patience, handling my case with care, and respect!- Brittany P.
After being told I didn't have a case from three other attorneys, I contacted Ryan who took my case. After being wrongfully terminated, Ryan fought hard to get the justice I deserved! Jeannetta was great and kept me updated without me having to harass them lol... I won my lawsuit and was pleased with the results. I highly recommend Ryan and his team Jeanetta! They will give you the justice you deserve!- Victoria B.
Kelly, Morgan, and Lauren are so welcoming and informative. They make a real difference both in and out of the office with their drive, ambition, and support.- Rebecca S.
Perry and Young is a fantastic Law firm to work with! I have personally worked with Ted Howell on multiple occasions and he has been kind, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend Ted and Perry Young.- Christopher A.

Florida Personal Injury Laws
Personal injury laws in Florida govern the legal rights of individuals who have been harmed or injured due to the negligence or wrongful actions of another party. These laws encompass a wide range of situations, including car accidents, slip and fall incidents, medical malpractice, product liability cases, and more.
To succeed in a personal injury lawsuit based on negligence in Florida, the plaintiff (the injured party) typically needs to prove the following elements:
- Duty of Care: The plaintiff must demonstrate that the defendant owed them a duty of care. This duty of care refers to the legal obligation to act reasonably and prudently to avoid causing harm to others. For example, drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles safely, property owners have a duty to maintain safe premises, and healthcare providers have a duty to provide competent medical care.
- Breach of Duty: The plaintiff must show that the defendant breached the duty of care owed to them. This means that the defendant failed to act in a manner consistent with how a reasonable person would have acted under similar circumstances. The breach of duty could involve actions (such as reckless driving) or inactions (such as failing to fix a hazardous condition on a property).
- Causation: The plaintiff must establish that the defendant's breach of duty was the proximate cause of their injuries. Proximate cause means that the defendant's actions or negligence directly led to the plaintiff's injuries in a foreseeable way. In other words, the plaintiff must show that "but for" the defendant's actions or negligence, the injury would not have occurred.
- Damages: The plaintiff must prove that they suffered actual damages as a result of the defendant's breach of duty. Damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and other losses resulting from the injury.
