Nursing Home Abuse
According to government statistics, about half of all nursing home residents fall victim to some form of physical, emotional, or financial abuse. If you suspect that you or a loved one may be a victim of abuse in a nursing home, it is important to understand that (i) you are not alone, and (ii) you deserve experienced, compassionate help to stop the abuse. Our South Florida personal injury lawyer is passionate about helping victims secure compensation and find a better life.
Slips, falls, toxic chemicals, dangerous construction sites, and inadequate security are all common risks that lead to serious illnesses and injuries. In Florida, swimming pool accidents also claim far too many lives every year. At The Law Offices of David M. Benenfeld P.A., we provide vigorous representation for claims against property owners, tenants, and the other parties that are frequently responsible for premises-related accidents.
Businesses that we have fought against:
While trucking accidents frequently result from negligence on the part of the truck driver, in many cases, the truck driver’s employer, the shipping company, the truck manufacturer, and a variety of other parties can also be to blame. Seeking compensation for injuries suffered in a trucking accident requires experienced legal representation. Our personal injury law firm has decades of experience handling truck and other vehicle accident claims throughout Florida.
In addition to representing injury victims, we also represent families in cases involving wrongful death. If you recently lost a loved one in an accident or as a result of abuse in a nursing home, lawyer David M. Benenfeld will personally see to it that you receive compensation for your loss. The attorney that represents you can file a claim under the Florida Wrongful Death Act.
First-Party Homeowner Claims
As a homeowner, you always pay your homeowner’s insurance premiums on time, and you expect the coverage to be there when you need it. So, what do you do when your insurance company drags its feet or wrongfully denies your homeowner’s claim or just doesn’t pay what your claim is worth?
Social Security Disability Insurance
You can prepare for a lot of things in life. You can put money away for college for your kids or your own retirement fund. You can buy insurance policies for your health, car, house, and life. But there isn’t any way to prepare for a serious, life-altering injury or disease. What happens if you receive an injury or develop a disease that leaves you paralyzed, or unable to work, or unable to continue the job that you’ve done for your entire life? What happens if the insurance policy covers the medical expenses and very little else? What happens if you have to bring a time-consuming legal action against the insurers in order to get them to live up to their obligations? How are you going to live? How are you going to feed your family?
So, you’ve been hurt on the job and are probably overwhelmed by how you feel. You may also be wondering when (or if) you’ll receive any money while you recuperate or even if you’ll receive medical care for the injuries that you have. The Florida Workers’ Compensation system is supposed to be a “self-executing” system in that when you get hurt, the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Carriers are supposed to automatically provide you with all the benefits that you’re entitled to under the law. Unfortunately, although this was the intent of the law when it was written, the notion that the law is “self-executing” simply isn’t the case.
