I Represent Victims Injured In A Range Of Scenarios

There are numerous common claims under the umbrella of personal injury law, including car accidents, workplace injuries, medical malpractice and injuries caused by defective products. Read on to learn about my approach to each of these claims.

Fighting For Car Accident Victims

If you have been injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation – the amount of which will depend on the extent of your injuries and how much you have suffered. You can file a first-party claim against the personal injury protection benefits provision on your own insurance, which can help cover costs of medical care and wage loss up to a certain amount. You may also be eligible to receive transportation services. A third-party case, on the other hand, is filed against the insurance company for the driver responsible for the accident.

When an accident occurs, you need to notify your insurance company as soon as possible. Even if you’re not the one at fault, you must let the police know about the incident. Reporting the accident as soon as possible is crucial to preserving evidence. Your insurance company will want to see the police report as well as the contact information of any witnesses.

Know Your Legal Options After Being Hurt On The Job

Workers’ compensation generally covers injuries that happen in the workplace. While the vast majority of injuries suffered by workers are physical, workplace incidents can also result in psychological issues like post-traumatic stress disorder, many of which can also be considered compensable injuries.

Injuries that occur outside of work hours or were caused by nonemployees may be ineligible for workers’ comp benefits, but some can be the subject of a personal injury lawsuit known as a third-party liability claim. I can help you understand which options may be available to you and help you pursue all available sources of compensation.

Injuries Due To Physician Negligence And Medical Malpractice

Injuries caused by negligence occur every day, and medical malpractice is no exception. In the United States, medical negligence accounts for about 225,000 deaths per year, and this figure may be low because many of these types of incidents go unreported.

Medical malpractice is a complex form of personal injury law, and proving negligence is a challenging task. Many times, there are conflicting opinions among medical experts, and the direct cause of the injury is difficult to prove. It is important to hire a good attorney to handle these cases.

Harm Caused By Dangerous And Defective Products

A defective product may be the result of a manufacturing, design or marketing defect. Defective products, including toys, food items and medical devices, can cause physical and psychological injuries or even death. Thankfully, victims injured by defective products can pursue compensation in a products liability claim for damages such as medical bills, pain and suffering, permanent disability and more. A successful lawsuit can hold the manufacturer liable and force changes that could prevent future injuries.

Did You Lose A Loved One Due To A Fatal Act Of Negligence?

If someone you love died due to another’s negligence or intentional acts, you may be able to seek compensation. A wrongful death lawsuit is a civil action, not a criminal case. In Florida, the only person allowed to serve as the plaintiff is the representative of the deceased victim’s estate. Any proceeds from a settlement or judgment will be distributed to the victim’s surviving family members in this order: spouse, children, parents, other blood or adopted relatives. Available damages include compensation for the victim’s funeral expenses, medical expenses and loss of earnings and companionship.
