Don’t choose a lawyer from ads alone. Ads only tell you what they want you to know, and that may not be who they really are. We recommend choosing a lawyer by inquiring about experience and reputation.
When you or your loved one suffer an injury as the result of somebody else’s action, perhaps it seems natural that the person would offer to compensate you for your injury, or that their insurance company will do the right thing and offer a fair settlement. Unfortunately, that rarely happens. Many people will not take responsibility for their actions, and insurance companiesprofit from undercompensating injury victims. Insurance companies and their lawyers also know the governing law backwards and forwards, and they know that most non-lawyers have no idea what legal rights and remedies they possess.
An experienced South Florida personal injury lawyer knows how to build your case, how to negotiate your case with an insurance company, and, if necessary, how to take your case to trial. While it is possible to negotiate your claim with an insurance company yourself, insurance companies will typically do everything they can to take advantage of you and to effect the lowest possible settlement, while attempting to elicit statements from you that will damage your position if you ultimately decide to sue.
Personal Injury Claims & Theories of Liability in Florida:
Auto Accident Claims: Automobile drivers in Florida who are negligent in the operation of a motor vehicle and cause personal injury or property damage as a result will be liable to the injured party.
Medical Malpractice: A health care professional must provide an accepted standard of care. This is that level of care and treatment recognized as appropriate by similar healthcare providers under similar circumstances.
Slip and Fall Accidents: Property owners are held to a special standard requiring that they maintain their premises in a safe manner, make reasonable inspections and notify others of known dangerous conditions. When a property owner fails to do so, they will be liable for personal injuries that result.
Product Liability Lawsuits: When products placed into the stream of commerce for use and consumption injure another, manufacturers, designers and distributors will be held strictly liable for the injuries meaning that the consumer need not prove fault.
Wrongful Death Cases: If an individual dies due to the negligence of another in an automobile accident, a medical malpractice case, a work related injury or a premises liability case, the liable party or parties will be responsible to the victim’s estate for any and all personal injury settlements that arise.
Workers Compensation Laws: In Florida, all employers are required to carry workers compensation insurance so that, in the event of a workplace injury, employees’ medical expenses will be covered.
