Like any metropolitan area, Cooper City sees its share of accidents. Personal injury law is based on theories of negligence. Negligence is defined as the breach of a legal duty causing harm to another. Personal injury suits provide a legal remedy to recover damages caused by another party’s negligence. In traffic accidents, for example, at-fault drivers are liable for the property damage and bodily harm caused by their careless driving. This may require paying for the injured party’s repairs, medical expenses, lost income, and other costs. However, because compensation is limited under Florida’s “no-fault” policy, injured parties often have to pursue a legal claim against the negligent driver. An auto accident attorney can help you recover full damages for your injury.
Manufacturers must prevent unreasonable injury caused by use of their products. Consumers harmed by a flawed product’s construction, assembly, or design may recover damages from the maker. Under Florida law, manufacturers face strict liability for injuries resulting from the product’s intended or “foreseeable” use. In many cases, the manufacturer is presumed liable, allowing victims to recover compensation without having to show negligence. In addition to economic and noneconomic damages, the claimant may also be entitled to attorney’s fees and costs.
Doctors owe their patients a legal duty of care. They breach fall below the required standard by committing negligent acts during routine diagnosis, surgery, or treatment. Delivery mishaps, for instance, may cause birth defects such as cerebral and Erb’s palsy. Through abuse and neglect, hospitals and nursing facilities may kill or seriously injure their patients, making them liable to the victim for injuries, or to surviving family members for wrongful death. Medical providers who inflict injury on the patient at any time, from delivery to hospice, may be liable for malpractice. Our stellar medical malpractice attorneys have experience proving the full extent of future costs, such as special education and continuing medical expenses, as a result of the injury.
Similarly, landowners and employers in control of property have a duty to keep the premises safe for invitees. This duty could require cleaning floors to protect against slip-and-falls or implementing rules to prevent exposure to hazardous substances. Property owners must clear or repair any dangerous conditions such as uneven steps, fallen merchandise, or shattered windows. A dangerous condition may refer to anything, from insufficient security to an aggressive dog. Negligent owners are liable for any harm caused by their failure to safely maintain the premises. If you were injured in an accident, you may be entitled to recover damages for medical expenses, lost income, and mental anguish. Our attorneys are committed to helping you recover the compensation you deserve. For a free consultation, contact our Fort Lauderdale office by calling our toll-free number at 800-747-3733.
