- Car Accidents
The driver who caused your crash may have been careless, distracted, drunk, or speeding. Or maybe a defective auto part, a missing street sign, or a negligently maintained roadway contributed to your crash. No matter the cause, if you are suffering from serious injuries after an auto accident that wasn’t your fault, you need to speak with our skilled car accident attorneys as soon as possible. Our team will immediately begin investigating your crash to determine who should be held responsible and how much compensation you will need to heal and move forward with your life. We will handle all the tough claim negotiations and protect you from making mistakes that the insurance companies could use against you.
- PREMISES LIABILITY, INADEQUATE SECURITY, AND SLIP-AND-FALL ACCIDENTS
Business owners have a responsibility to keep their properties in a reasonably safe condition and to warn visitors about potential risks. When a business fails to do so, serious injuries can result. For example, a business may fail to put out “wet floor” signs, and a visitor may slip and fall as a result. Or the company may not provide adequate lighting, locks, and other security measures to prevent crime, allowing a customer to be attacked. If you were injured on someone else’s property, you need to talk to our skilled premises liability lawyers today to learn what types of compensation you may be entitled to.
- WORKERS’ COMPENSATION AND ON-THE-JOB INJURIES
If you have been injured on the job or are suffering from a work-related illness, you can likely file a claim for Florida workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits can help cover your medical bills and lost wages. Or if a loved one suffered a fatal work-related injury, you may be able to file for death benefits. In addition, workers who suffer on-the-job injuries that were caused by a negligent third party (such as a careless subcontractor or the manufacturer of a defective tool) may be able to pursue compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. Our skilled Florida workers’ compensation attorneys can help you identify all possible sources of compensation and build a case for a full payout after an on-the-job injury.
- CONSTRUCTION ACCIDENTS
Whether you were injured while working on a construction site, visiting one, or just passing by, our dedicated accident attorneys are here to help. Because construction sites typically involve a number of liable parties, our team will need to launch an investigation to determine who should be held responsible for your injuries. This could include site owners, contractors, or subcontractors who failed to follow proper safety precautions or were negligent in their oversite. Or it could include companies that made and sold defective equipment, machinery, tools, and materials. Once our construction accident attorneys determine who should be held liable, we will fight aggressively for maximum compensation for your injuries.
- LONGSHORE AND HARBOR WORKER ACCIDENTS
Longshore and harbor workers who are injured on the job are generally covered by the federal Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA). Although this law is meant to protect you, filing a claim is complicated. Our knowledgeable longshore and harbor worker accident attorneys understand how the LHWCA works and will collect all the evidence needed to build a strong claim for maximum benefits.
- MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENTS
Motorcyclists have the same right to use Florida’s roads as any four-wheeled vehicle. Nonetheless, too many drivers fail to share the road with motorcyclists – and the results can be devastating. Motorcyclists who crash may suffer brain or spinal cord injuries, broken bones, crushed organs, and severe skin damage known as “road rash.” If you or a loved one has been hurt in a motorcycle crash, you need to get legal help right away. Our dedicated Florida motorcycle accident lawyers are committed to protecting your rights and demanding full and fair compensation.
- TRUCK ACCIDENTS
A crash involving a large truck can result in life-threatening injuries and an overwhelming financial burden for victims. And although people who are hurt in such accidents often need the most help, these cases can also be the most complicated. That’s because there are so many parties responsible for keeping a truck safe on the road. Your accident could have been caused by a fatigued driver, a negligent maintenance crew, a careless cargo loader, or the company that owns the tractor-trailer. Our experienced Florida truck accident lawyers will find out who is responsible for your crash and aggressively fight for the full and fair compensation you deserve.
- WRONGFUL DEATH
The most devastating cases we handle are the ones that take lives. Family members are forced to cope with not only the emotional loss but the financial implications of losing a loved one. You may be facing large hospital bills or missing the paychecks your family depended on. And although we know that no amount of money can reverse the damage that has been done, our compassionate Florida wrongful death lawyers can help your family pursue the compensation you need to lift the financial burden you are dealing with.
