Personal Injury, Automobile Accidents, Slip / Trip and Fall

Personal Injury

According to data provided by the CDC, approximately 37 million people in the United States are injured in accidents each year. In addition to expensive medical bills, many of these accident victims also have to deal with other losses – both physical and mental – due to the carelessness or even the outright malicious intent of others. These losses may be fairly mild, such as missing a few days of work, or they could involve long-term physical and psychological trauma. Florida has specific laws designed to protect the rights of those who have been harmed by a negligent party. These laws allow you to seek appropriate compensation for your injuries, but they can also be complex and frustrating if you’re trying to research them yourself. To fully protect your rights, it is important to consult an experienced personal injury lawyer who deals with accident-related injuries and their consequences every day.

Automobile Accidents

Each year, there are well over 10 million car accidents in the United States. While many of these mishaps may be classified as minor, data from the United States Census Bureau tells us that over two million people a year are injured in auto accidents. These injuries can lead to high medical bills, lost wages, property damage, emotional distress – and even death. Unfortunately, in their desire to put the whole incident behind them as quickly as possible, many car accident victims take the first settlement offered by the at-fault party’s insurance company. As a result, these victims don’t receive the full compensation to which they are entitled and are often left to pay for unexpected expenses out of their own pockets. If you’ve been involved in a car accident, it’s important to take enough time to determine the extent of your injuries and property damage – and how these damages will impact your life. Even though an insurance company may try to pressure you into a quick settlement, you should refrain from negotiating with them until you have spoken with a qualified attorney who specializes in auto accidents and other personal injury claims.

Slip/Trip and Fall

All property owners, residential and commercial, have the duty to ensure safe environments for all visitors. If you have been harmed by a hazardous condition on another’s sidewalk, personal residence, restaurant, mall, hotel, office building, school, park, theater, museum or other property, you may be eligible to file a premises liability claim and receive compensation for your injury. "Slip and Fall" injuries are a major cause of premises liability and commonly occur from uneven or slippery surfaces, but can also be the result of:

  • Crumbling Stairs
  • Wet Floors
  • Exposed Electrical Wiring
  • Raised Flooring
  • Falling Debris
  • Obstructed Pathways
  • Poorly Lit Walkways

Although premises liability law seeks to protect parties who are injured as the result of the property owner’s negligence, it is often difficult to prove liability, especially if the owner has corrected the hazardous condition. To ensure that the proper grounds for your claim are met, you should contact our law firm to help you collect compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and even emotional trauma. Our personal injury law firm can assess your injury and assist you in determining whether the property owner failed to maintain his or her property or properly warn of hazardous conditions. For your claim to be successful, it must be shown that the property owner knew about the hazardous situation and failed to correct it in a timely manner, and that the action or inaction of the property owner caused the condition which led to your injury.
