These accidents can take a variety of forms and may include slip and falls, car wrecks, workplace accidents, pedestrian accidents, and more. What they all share in common, however, is that when they are the result of the negligence of another person, victims are entitled to compensation for the losses they experience – including their medical bills, property damages, loss of quality of life, lost income, and physical and emotional pain and suffering.

Accidental injuries can happen in a variety of different ways and the approach to each case will depend on how the injury occurred. The experienced attorneys at Sibley Dolman regularly and successfully handle cases arising from the following, among others:
Car accidents – More than 2.4 million people sustain injuries in car accidents every year. Such accidents can be caused by dangerous driving, dangerous road hazards, defective cars, and more.
Commercial truck accidents – About 480,000 commercial vehicles are involved in crashes on an annual basis. Because of the large weight and size of trucks and buses, the damage and injury caused by these crashes can be devastating.
Motorcycle accidents – It is estimated that 88,000 motorcyclists are injured each year and nearly 5,000 motorcyclists do not survive their accidents. Negligent drivers—especially those driving while distracted—commonly cause motorcycle crashes.
Bicycle accidents – Bicyclists are a regular sight in Florida. However, in addition to the many benefits of cycling, there are also risks of accidents and serious injuries. A bicyclist can suffer severe injuries even if they are wearing a helmet and other safety gear.
Pedestrian accidents – Statistics indicate that a pedestrian is injured once every eight minutes in the U.S. Pedestrians have no protection from injuries when they are hit by cars. Because of this, they are vulnerable to traumatic injuries when hit.
Boating accidents – There are more than 931,000 watercraft registered in Florida, where boating is a popular activity year-round. However, boating is also commonly associated with drinking, distractions, and inexperienced operators, all of which regularly lead to accidents.
Bus or train accidents – Traveling by bus or train is economical and convenient. However, when such vehicles are involved in accidents, numerous injuries can result.
Slip and falls – People injure themselves on a regular basis by slipping and falling down. Many times, such falls happen in stores or other businesses due to dangerous flooring or other hazards.
Premises liability – Slip and falls are not the only accidents that happen due to dangerous conditions on someone’s property. Many other accidents and injuries can occur due to negligent property owners.
Medical malpractice – While you should be able to trust that doctors will provide proper care, sometimes, medical professionals make serious mistakes that result in preventable injuries and complications to patients.
Nursing home abuse – Residents of nursing homes and assisted living facilities can be harmed by many types of mistreatment, including neglect, physical assault, emotional abuse, financial abuse, sexual assault, and more.
Defective products – Millions of products are manufactured and sold every day, many of which can have flaws. Defective products can malfunction and cause serious injuries—often right in our own homes.
Dangerous drugs – Any drug that is put on the market should be safe for its intended use. However, the pharmaceutical industry is notorious for making dangerous drugs or failing to fully provide warnings of possibly harmful side effects.
Dog bites – Dogs are man’s best friend—until one attacks a person. Dog owners in Florida can be held strictly liable for any harm caused by their pets, and victims can often receive compensation for their injuries.
Workplace injuries – When people go to work, they should expect a safe and healthy job environment. When a person suffers a job-related injury, the law protects their interests by giving them the right to workers’ compensation benefits.
