Motor vehicle accidents
If you are the victim of a motor vehicle accident caused by the negligence or carelessness of others, you are entitled to recover monetary damages for the full extent of your loss. This includes medical bills as well as loss of income. Other damages such as physical pain, emotional pain, and suffering can also result in financial compensation.
Successful negotiations between your lawyer and the insurance company are critical to the outcome of your case. The right attorney can intercede with the insurance company to make sure the full scope of your damages is forcefully presented, resulting in the best possible outcome for your case.
You do not have to be in a neck brace or a wheel chair to recover damages from your accident. But you do need an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to prove that your injuries are legitimate.
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, surgeon, nurse, dentist, chiropractor, or other health care provider fails to act reasonably, based upon what is expected from similar health care providers under the same circumstances.
It is critical that you speak with a qualified attorney as soon as you suspect you have been the victim of medical malpractice. There are laws in Florida limiting the time when your claim will be considered. A knowledgeable attorney knows how to work within these time limits to ensure you can file and recover compensation for your damages.
Slip and fall
Do not take instances of slip and fall lightly. They can be treated as serious legal matters enabling you to recover compensation for damages or losses you suffer, both medically and emotionally. Instances where you fall due to an uneven surface, an obstruction in your path, an un-shoveled sidewalk, or other unsafe condition may entitle you to compensation.
Property owners are responsible for keeping their property safe. In addition, pedestrians are expected to be attentive to where they are walking. An experienced slip and fall lawyer can determine where your responsibility ends and a property owner’s begins.
Dog bites are a surprisingly frequent occurrence. Of the nearly four million that occur each year, nearly one million require medical attention. An experienced attorney can help illustrate who is responsible for the attack. Oftentimes a pet owner will claim that the victim provoked the animal. However, with a qualified lawyer presenting your case it can be proven that the owner did not take the appropriate action to keep the animal under control. The laws regarding dog bites vary from state to state. A knowledgeable law firm can explain what your options are for taking legal action.
Oftentimes, retailers or other landowners are negligent in caring for their property. Wires get left uncovered, appropriate security measures are not taken, or railings, stairways, and walking paths are not maintained. If you are injured as a result of negligence, turn your case over to an effective attorney.
You are entitled to compensation. There is no reason to allow irresponsible property owners to get away with failing to maintain their premises.
Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers are responsible for the injuries their products cause if the injury occurs while the product is being used according to directions. As a consumer, you are entitled to recoup any losses or damages suffered from faulty merchandise.
Whether a design defect, a manufacturing defect, a malfunction, or a failure to warn, do not hesitate to consult an attorney about injuries you experience related to consumer products. Foods, cosmetics, automobiles, toys, medicines, and more, all fall under this category of the law. Do not deprive yourself the opportunity to be compensated for your product liability case.
