Types of Personal Injury Cases We Take
Personal injury is a very broad area of law that typically involves physical injuries as a result of another person’s negligent or reckless behavior. Some of the more common cases we have taken include the following.
In 2019, Palm Beach County saw over 26,000 car accidents for the entire year, and we anticipate the numbers to remain high in the following years. These accidents cause a variety of injuries, including permanent disabilities. Florida’s no-fault insurance scheme is difficult to navigate, so experienced help is often necessary to obtain fair compensation.
Larger and heavier than passenger sedans, commercial trucks can cause devastating injuries when they collide with other vehicles on the road. Commercial trucks include big rigs, semi-trailers, delivery trucks, dump trucks, and moving vans, among others. These trucks are closely regulated by both the federal and state government, but negligent or fatigued drivers can slam into someone quite easily.
Florida has the most boats in the United States, with almost a million vessels registered. Someone can suffer a life-changing injury when their boat collides with another vessel or a stationary object like the dock. Other vessels sink or catch on fire due to poor maintenance or a defect on the ship.
Owners and occupiers have a duty to visitors to make sure their property is safe. Any hazards should be promptly fixed or else the public should be warned. Unfortunately, countless people are hurt each year in slip and fall or trip and fall accidents due to unfixed hazards like defective floorboards, staircases, or spilled liquids. Other people are injured in dog attacks or violent attacks due to negligent security.
People go to the doctor expecting to be made well. Unfortunately, medical errors can seriously injure a person, sometimes leading to their deaths. All medical professionals owe their patients a duty to follow the accepted standard of care. When they don’t, and this oversight causes injury, then patients can sue for compensation.
A product should work as expected, but defects in the design or manufacture can make them unreasonably dangerous. A product might also lack adequate warnings or safety instructions. Florida law makes manufacturers and others liable when dangerous products injure consumers.
The death of a loved one is tragic, and no amount of money can replace them. However, when a loved one dies, many people see their finances collapse. A wrongful death suit can help.
