Automobile Accidents

Car accidents are the leading cause of personal injury lawsuits filed in the United States today. While some accidents are easy to resolve, those that involve serious injuries and extensive vehicle damage may require the intervention of an automobile liability lawyer.

Medical Malpractice

Recent medical advances have effectively increased life expectancy, enhanced the quality of life, and made many surgeries and treatments routine and commonplace throughout the developed world. There are times, however, when medical professionals and technology fail you.

Aviation Accidents

Aviation accidents happen, though not as often as road accidents. Air transport is considered a safe mode of transportation, as few incidences could cause the plane to come tumbling down. If the worst should happen and you or a loved one are involved in a plane crash, you should contact an attorney right away.

Products Liability

When you buy a product, you have the right to expect it to be safe for use. While most products we buy fit this bill, some do not and people are hurt as a result. Many people suffer from the effects of using defective or faulty products, with some even losing their lives.

Bicycle Accidents

Bicycles have every legal right to share the road with cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other vehicles. Unfortunately, they offer little protection for cyclists, who are vulnerable to severe injury in a collision with any of them. Fatalities are common. Survivors face exorbitant medical costs and months of rehabilitation, even years. Some never recover and endure a lifetime of crippling, painful suffering.

Bus and Limo Accidents

Limousines have the important job of carting tourists around the state, and buses are responsible for transporting thousands every day. Not anyone can drive the public around, and those that qualify have a duty to protect everyone in their vehicles. This duty is not just a moral one, but it is also legally binding. Everyone using the road has a responsibility to do so safely, but public drivers even more so.

Construction Accidents

Construction sites are dangerous places. Scaffolding accidents are common, and there is risk of fire, falling objects, electrical shock, and even explosions. Fatalities in this industry are shocking. Hundreds die every year and even more suffer grave injury. Companies have a legal duty to ensure a safe environment for every person on site, but unfortunately, accident rates remain unacceptably high.

Hotel Accidents

As a haven for tourists, Florida has a wide selection of hotels, vacation rentals, and other holiday lodgings available to guests, all of whom have a right to safety. Unfortunately, far too many never leave the same. A simple stay can be life-threatening one, as hotel accidents can be dangerous and are extremely common. If injured by your accommodations, it is likely someone is responsible.

Pedestrian Accidents

Florida is debatably the busiest state for pedestrians. Tourists arrive in their hundreds of thousands each year to add to the state’s already severe congestion problems. Despite the best efforts of cities to provide pedestrians with safe walkways and crossings, of all states in the country, Florida remains the one killing most of them. Sadly, all of them, down to the last one, are preventable.

Florida Ridesharing Accidents

Despite the convenience and popularity of rideshare services, such as Uber and Lyft, horror stories abound. Accidents happen and someone must take responsibility for them. Victims of these drivers have medical and rehabilitation bills to pay. Many lose income. Some never recover. Others do not survive. Victims are many, from passengers themselves to other motorists, cyclists, bikers, and even pedestrians.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Anybody who owns property has a legal duty to ensure the safety of everyone on it. Premises liability is a particularly challenging branch of injury law, as proving negligence can be trying. The law requires proprietors comply with every public safety regulation, and failure to do so leaves victims with legal recourse to claim damages. However, most proprietors can afford the best legal team to fight claims.

Truck Accidents

Taxi companies provide Florida with valuable services, making it much easier for tourists and commuters to get around the state. However, they have a responsibility to ensure the safety of not only their passengers, but also everyone else using the road. If any of them cause an accident, then the company is liable for resulting injuries or deaths. If you ever use taxis, then you need to know your rights.

Wrongful Death

People should not be dying because of the recklessness of others. Wrongful death is simply tragic and always preventable. Negligence is cause for liability in Florida, which means that families of victims can sue for damages from the person responsible. No amount of compensation can return a loved one to you, but it does get justice for him or her and can protect you and your family from financial distress.
