Types of Personal Injury Claims
Some of the other personal injury lawsuits we handle are:
Boating Accidents – Florida is home to some of the greatest waterways to enjoy boating. Consequently, Florida leads the country in both total fatalities and accidents. Some of the most common causes of boating-related accidents in Florida are alcohol use, excessive speed, carelessness/inattention, operator inexperience, and passenger behavior. Injuries associated with boating accidents in Florida are lacerations, contusions, broken bones, head injuries, back injuries, sprains/strains, and internal injuries. It is critical to work with a lawyer who can bring all the responsible parties into court so that you can obtain a full recovery.
Nursing Home Neglect – Sometimes, families are faced with the tough decision of placing a loved one in a nursing home. When a family places one of their most cherished family members into the hands of others, the family trusts that the nursing home will treat their loved one with compassion, respect, and dignity. Unfortunately, some facilities choose to blatantly disregard their legal, moral, and ethical responsibilities. We are experienced at handling cases involving bedsores, open wounds, physical abuse, mental abuse, dehydration, malnutrition, medication errors, over-sedation, poor personal hygiene, and a host of other tragic but preventable incidents. Some of our Firm’s lawyers have years of past experience representing nursing homes. This experience provides our lawyers with keen insight into the delicate nuances of these unique cases.
Wrongful Death – Wrongful death cases arise from a variety of circumstances, including vehicle crashes, medical malpractice, dangerous or defective products, workplace, and job-related mishaps, and construction site accidents. A wrongful death lawsuit occurs when a person is killed as a result of the negligence or misconduct of another person, company, or entity. There are different damages that can be recovered through a wrongful death lawsuit. The first is damages for medical bills and expenses incurred. There are also damages provided to the survivors of a person who died due to the negligence of another. These damages can include funeral costs, loss of income, loss of consortium, and pain and suffering. These damages help the family members adjust to life without their loved one after a sudden loss.
