Personal injuries can happen in many, many different ways. Some of the cases we handle involve the following types of accidents and injuries:
• Pedestrian accidents
• Bicycle accidents
• Traumatic brain injuries
• Spinal cord injuries
• Birth injuries
• Dangerous pharmaceuticals
• Dog bites
• Nursing home abuse
• Wrongful death
• Truck accidents
In order to recover for your personal injury-related losses, you must sufficiently prove that another party acted in a negligent manner. This involves much more than simply stating that you believe they were negligent; instead, you must present specific kinds of evidence to support your claims. In particular, evidence must indicate the following elements are met:
The party owed you a duty of care in the situation. For instance, drivers have a duty to operate their vehicles in a reasonably safe manner and property owners have a duty to keep the premises in reasonable safe condition for the safety of visitors.
The party breached that duty and caused your injuries. Examples of breached duties can include a driver who was texting and caused a collision or a property owner who allowed a dangerous condition to exist and a patron fell.
You suffered losses as a result. Losses can include medical bills, lost wages and future earning capacity, lost benefits, loss of enjoyment of life, emotional distress, physical pain and suffering, and more.
There are many specific legal principles and standards at issue in a personal injury case, so you always want an attorney handling your case who fully understands the law and how it applies to your individual case.

When preventable accidents result in serious injury, victims can sustain tremendous losses. Victims often incur significant medical expenses and lose income due to not being able to work. In addition, people who are hurt in accidents often experience substantial physical and emotional pain and suffering. Fortunately, Florida tort law allows victims to recover compensation for these and other losses that they may experience as a result of a preventable accident. A lawyer familiar with litigating Florida personal injury cases can often help victims recover substantially more compensation than they would be able to retain on their own, so it is highly advisable for anyone injured in an accident to discuss their options with an experienced lawyer.
