Accidents - Personal Injury

Getting injured is bad, its even worse when its not your fault. You’re left dealing with physical, emotional, and financial pain that someone else caused. Luckily, the legal system is fine-tuned to address this scenario. This is called “personal injury law.” If you or a loved one were hurt because of the negligence of another person, you might be able to file a lawsuit to recover compensation for your injuries.

    Burn & Fire Injuries

    Victims of fires and other burn injuries are often left with physical and psychological scars that leave them with overwhelming medical bills, lost wages, and life-changing pain and suffering. When someone else caused the burn injury because of their negligence — such as an apartment landlord failing to follow fire safety laws or an employer not following workplace safety regulations — the victim may be able to seek compensation for these and other losses.

    Car Accident

    Automobile accidents are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and death in Florida and the United States. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that Florida has one of the highest rates of traffic fatalities per year. In every accident whether one or more vehicles was involved, at least one negligent driver is usually at fault. All drivers have a duty to safely operate their motor vehicles. Drivers breach that duty by endangering other motorists with their negligent conduct. When this happens, at-fault drivers become liable for any property damage or bodily injury “proximately caused” by their negligence. Negligent driving occurs when the motorist experiences a loss of focus or other impairment of driving skills, causing an accident.

    Slip & Fall

    Whether it’s an unaddressed spill on a floor, a faulty railing or step, an obstruction of some sort, or any other factor a property owner knew about but did not address, you’re left dealing with a host of issues that were no fault of your own. You don’t have to put up with this. You can file a slip & fall lawsuit against the property owner whose negligence had a negative impact on your life.

    Truck Accident

    Have you been injured or lost a loved one in a truck accident? There are a number of parties such as the truck company and their driver, who may be liable for your losses. It is not uncommon for these parties to deny fault or liability for a crash.

Following a crash, the trucking company and their insurance company will start an immediate investigation of the scene. These companies have specific and detailed procedures on handling truck accident claims designed to limit the recovery of those injured in the crash.
