When You're Injured, It's Personal
- Is another person or company legally responsible for your injuries – whether because of an intentional action, out of negligence or under strict liability laws?
- If the answer is yes, then what is the extent of the damages suffered?
Types of Cases We Handle
- Vehicle Accidents: The most common types of vehicle accidents are auto accidents, semi-truck crashes and motorcycle wrecks. But virtually any vehicle – from ATVs to golf cars to riding mowers – can cause serious injures, prompting a civil suit.
- Slips/Falls/Premises Liability: In June of 2010, Governor Charlie Crist signed House Bill 689, a bill that could make slip-and-fall victims' cases harder to prove in Florida. Slip-and-fall accident cases require an attorney that is familiar with the changes in the laws surrounding the requirements that property owners must follow to protect visitors in Florida. This area of practice also is known as "premises liability."
- Medical Malpractice: According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, these cases are among the most difficult for the victim to win. In such cases the burden is on the plaintiff to prove that a doctor, lab or hospital was negligent in causing harm to an individual.
- Wrongful Death: A case involving wrongful death can contain any category of personal injury above, as well as almost any other injury caused by negligence or inattention resulting in death.
How Is Liability Determined?
Damages Could Include ...
- Emotional or mental suffering by you or affected loved ones
- Economic impact of lost wages or loss of earning capacity
- Medical expenses related to the injury
- Cost of repairs or replacement for damaged property, such as a vehicle involved in a collision
- Funeral and burial expenses, in the most extreme cases
