What Dunedin Personal Injury Cases Do We Handle?
The legal team at Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA, knows that accidents and injuries can happen in many different ways—some more expected than others. We’ve seen how any type of sudden injury can bring your life to a grinding halt and create significant stress in addition to your physical injuries.
To best serve the Dunedin area, we know how to handle a wide range of personal injury cases.
Traffic-related accidents are one of the leading causes of accidental injury and death in the United States. Many different types of traffic crashes can occur, involving motorists, commercial truck drivers, bicyclists, motorcyclists, pedestrians, and more.
There are many common causes of traffic accidents, including:
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Road rage
- Violations of traffic laws
- Fatigued driving
Traffic accident cases can be more complicated than you may imagine, as injuries can be severe and liability can be challenging to prove. Florida also has unique auto insurance laws, and car accident claims differ from many other states.
When you go to the doctor, you expect to get better—not worse. However, too many people experience unnecessary and preventable complications or injuries because of mistakes made by medical professionals.
When a medical error rises to the level of negligence (the doctor breaches their duty of care), you can seek compensation by filing a malpractice claim. Common types of medical malpractice include:
- Surgical errors that lead to internal injuries, spinal cord injuries, or brain injuries
- Birth injuries
- Medication errors
- Hospital errors
Business owners and property owners are expected to keep their premises in a safe condition so that customers and visitors do not get injured.
If a negligent person does not have their property properly inspected or maintained or customers are not warned of possible risks, the business's customers can be injured in various types of accidents.
Common accidents that may result in a premises liability claim include:
- Slip and falls leading to broken bones
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Hotel and resort accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Parking lot pedestrian accidents
- Dog bites
- Loss of life
Manufacturers have the duty to design and assemble products in a manner that makes them safe for consumers to use as intended. If there are risks when using a product, manufacturers must warn consumers of these dangers. If you use a defective product that does not contain a proper warning, you can get seriously hurt.
Products that are commonly the subject of a products liability claim include:
- Cars and other vehicles
- Tools and appliances
- Baby and child products
- Medical equipment
Nursing Home Abuse
When you or a loved one pays the often-costly price of a nursing home or another assisted living facility, you should expect to receive adequate—or more than adequate—care. This includes proper nutrition, shelter, sanitary rooms, necessary medical assistance, and more.
Florida is notorious for nursing homes that regularly violate the minimum standards for health and safety, which results in injuries to residents. Legal claims can result from:
- Nursing home neglect
- Physical assault
- Lack of timely medical care or medical attention
- Sexual assault
- Emotional distress or abuse
- Financial abuse
- Loss of companionship for spouses and loved ones
- Any other harm caused by the negligence or intentional acts of nursing home staff
When you hire an accident lawyer, they will ensure the responsible parties are brought to justice.
Going to your job should not make you nervous or afraid of an accident. Employers should take all necessary safety measures to keep employees safe and fully comply with occupational safety and health standards. However, millions of people suffer injuries or illnesses at work each year in the United States.
While industries such as construction, oil, or manufacturing have high risks of injuries, workplace accidents and injuries can happen in almost any work environment—even office buildings.
Workplace injuries may include:
- Neck injuries
- Burn injuries
- Broken bones
- A life-changing injury including paralysis or a traumatic brain injury
Seeking compensation for construction accidents or a workplace injury is often quite different from other types of personal injury claims. Therefore, make sure you have an experienced lawyer who knows how to handle workplace injury claims.
The above are only general descriptions of the types of personal injury cases the Dolman Law Group Accident Injury Lawyers, PA, takes. No matter what kind of accident occurred, please feel free to discuss how we can help you even the playing field and get maximum compensation for your injuries.

You May Need Help Negotiating with the Insurance Company
Working with an insurance adjuster can be challenging, especially if they are fighting you on your personal injury settlement. You need an experienced law firm like ours with a track record of successful negotiations. Our goal as your lawyer is to fight for monetary compensation from the negligent parties.
Suppose you have property damage, medical bills, or pain and suffering that require extensive financial resources, you need to do everything you can to ensure you receive the most money possible.
As an injury victim, you want a settlement that's fair; however, insurance adjusters typically do whatever they can to limit your compensation offer.
Most offers seldom match your definition of a fair settlement. Without representation to back you up, the insurance adjuster will likely take advantage of you because they know more about the law than you do. They are masterful at convincing you to take a lowball deal even when it's not in your best interest.
In addition, if you were looking to represent yourself in court, you should be aware that if you represent yourself you could be cheating yourself out of thousands of dollars in settlement money.
According to the Insurance Research Council (IRC), settlement compensation is higher when a lawyer represents the claimant and you won't have to wait as long to receive your money from the defendant.
