Our Areas of Practice
Our practice is dedicated to representing injured Floridians. We handle a range of injury matters, including:
- Workers’ compensation: According to the Florida Division of Workers’ Compensation (DWC), there were 55,501 workers’ comp cases in 2014. Total medical expenses reached $723,174,276, and total benefits amounted to $1,100,784,111. The average benefit amount per case was $21,493.
- Auto accidents: As reported on the Florida Integrated Report Exchange System (FIRES), motor vehicle crashes in 2014 resulted in 2,495 fatalities and 225,679 injuries. Out of 344,263 total accidents statewide, 149,463 caused injuries.
- Trucking accidents: Commercial trucking collision cases involve complex legal issues, including multiple potential parties and federal regulations. If you have been involved in a trucking accident, your best course of action is to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible.
- Motorcycle crashes: As discussed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcycles lack the crashworthiness of enclosed passenger vehicles. In addition, motorcycles are smaller, lighter, and harder to see than automobiles, and less stable on two wheels as opposed to four. According to the NHTSA, more than 80% of all motorcycle accidents cause death or injury to riders.
- Bicycle accidents: The NHTSA reports that, nationwide, 48,000 bicyclists were injured in crashes in a recent year, and 743 were killed. In Florida alone, there were 135 fatalities in 7,082 bicycle crashes in 2014.
- Premises liability: Property owners have a duty to maintain their property reasonably free of hazards, or to at least give adequate notice of any danger. When they fail in that duty, they can be held liable for resulting injuries in premises liability claims.
- Nursing home abuse and neglect: Nursing home abuse can be physical, psychological, financial, sexual, or gross neglect. Sadly, according to the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA), the problem is widespread, affecting millions of older and dependent people in long-term care facilities in the U.S.
- Wrongful death: When an injury resulting from negligence is so severe that it takes the life of the victim, wrongful death has occurred. Surviving family members may be entitled to seek justice for their loved one in a wrongful death claim.
