Types of Injury Cases We Handle
We provide high-quality representation in a range of injury matters, representing injured people – and not insurance companies or large corporations. The types of cases we handle include:
- Automobile accidents: Millions of people are injured in motor vehicle crashes in the U.S. every year. In Florida alone, 225,679 people were injured in traffic crashes in 2014, according to Florida Integrated Report Exchange System (FIRES) statistics.
- Motorcycle crashes: In a single recent year, 88,000 people were injured and 4,668 were killed in motorcycle accidents in the U.S., as reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Many motorcycle collisions are caused by drivers of passenger vehicles who fail to notice motorcycles in the roadway.
- Trucking accidents: Because of the sheer size and weight or large commercial trucks, passenger vehicle occupants are likely to suffer serious injury or death in large truck collisions. The NHTSA reports that 3,964 people died and 95,000 were injured in large truck crashes in the U.S. in a recent year.
- Bicycle accidents: As reported on FIRES, there were 7,082 bicycle crashes in Florida in 2014, resulting in 135 fatalities. Use of proper helmets can reduce the risk of head and brain injuries in bicycle accidents, as stated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
- Workers’ compensation: Collecting workers’ compensation benefits should be easy and practically automatic after a worker suffers an on-the-job injury. In actuality, however, it is not always easy to collect the benefits you need, and employers do not always comply with the law. The Florida Division of Workers’ Compensation reports that $1,477,398 in insurance premiums were generated in FY 2013-14 based on orders of penalty assessment.
- Nursing home abuse and neglect: According to the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA), abuse and neglect in long-term care facilities affects millions of people in the U.S. Abuse may be physical, psychological, sexual, financial, or in the form of gross neglect.
- Wrongful death: No settlement or verdict can ever compensate you for the wrongful death of a loved one. However, with a wrongful death claim, you can seek justice for your loved one by holding responsible parties accountable, helping to prevent similar negligence and injury to others in the future.
- Premises liability claims: When a property owner fails in their duty to maintain a property and keep it reasonably free of hazards, tenants, customers, and visitors can get hurt. Slippery floors and walkways, falling merchandise, toxic chemical exposure, inadequate lighting, and lack of security are examples of dangerous conditions that can result in serious injuries.
