What Causes Personal Injuries in Bradenton, FL?

Car Accidents

How Many Car Accidents Occur in Jacksonville Every Year

Car accidents are the most common cause of personal injuries and can leave people with catastrophic injuries and in desperate need of legal help from a Bradenton car accident lawyer.

Whether the crash is caused by reckless driving, inexperienced drivers, or distracted driving, when the wreckage is cleared, those who are injured can face extensive medical bills and a long road to recovery.

While Florida requires no-fault insurance and places limits on who can sue, you can pursue a fault-based claim when you suffer "serious" injuries or the cost of your medical care exceeds your PIP policy coverage, especially if:

  • the driver or passenger suffers a traumatic brain injury
  • a victim suffers spinal cord damage
  • the accident results in severe disfigurement
  • emotional trauma or pain and suffering leave a victim unable to work
  • one or more people die as a result of negligent behavior
  • the other driver was drunk or impaired
  • Death occurs due to the accident

Navigating the complexities of Florida's no-fault law requires experienced legal assistance from the car accident attorneys at Dolman Law Group. With thousands of clients represented successfully, our Bradenton personal injury attorneys offer car accident victims the best chance to reclaim their lives through effective, aggressive legal support.

Truck Accidents

Sometimes, truck drivers and the trucking companies that employ them, fail to follow federal regulations that reduce the risk of accidents. When this happens, it leads to devastating injuries resulting in:

  • head and neck trauma
  • damaged property
  • severe organ damage
  • fractures and broken bones
  • lost limbs

Commercial truck drivers are held to a higher standard on the road. This includes tighter restrictions on mobile phone use, driving time, and road behavior. Whether due to driver carelessness or company negligence, you can hold responsible parties accountable with the help of a Dolman Law Group truck accident lawyer.

Slip-and Fall

Business and property owners must maintain safe premises for all. Unfortunately, through negligent caretaking or careless behavior, Bradenton residents can slip or fall, causing excruciating injuries that limit mobility, diminish earning capacity, and require years of ongoing medical treatment. 

While anyplace is a potential risk for slip-and-fall accidents in Bradenton, the most common incidents occur in or at:

  • grocery stores
  • shopping malls
  • nursing homes
  • school campuses
  • construction sites
  • work zones
  • public bathrooms
  • restaurants

Holding others accountable for neglecting to create a safe environment is challenging without the help of premise liability attorneys. At Dolman Law Group, we know how to gather the evidence to prove your claim and secure the compensation needed to heal and move forward.

Nursing Home Abuse Or Neglect

  • unexplained bruises or fractures
  • reduced enjoyment of life
  • fear of being around certain staff

Common Injuries and Costs After a Bradenton Accident

Broken Bones

Fractures and broken bones can occur in accidents involving high-impact forces. Common bones that may be broken include arms, legs, wrists, ribs, and hips.

Non-surgical treatment costs start at $2,500; however, when surgery is required, that can quickly add $25,000+ to medical expenses.

Soft Tissue Injuries

These injuries involve damage to muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Sprains, strains, and tears in these soft tissues are common in accidents involving sudden movements or impacts.

Though seemingly minor, repairing soft tissues is an expensive, painful process with lifetime costs ranging from $20,000 to $100,000+.

Head Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can result from accidents involving significant blows to the head. These injuries can range from concussions to more severe brain damage, leading to cognitive, emotional, and physical impairments.

Severe head injuries ruin victims financially, with upfront costs exceeding $500,000 and lifetime costs averaging $3 million.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Causes of Spinal Cord Injuries

Accidents that involve significant force can lead to spinal cord injuries, resulting in paralysis or loss of sensation in certain parts of the body.

Depending on the level of paralysis, victims could be looking at $250,000 in upfront costs and $1.5+ million over a lifetime.


Whiplash is a neck injury often associated with rear-end car collisions. It occurs when the head is jerked forward and backward suddenly, straining the neck muscles and ligaments.

These injuries turn simple physical movements into excruciating tasks, severely limiting earning potential and requiring long-term treatment.

Neck and Back Injuries

Along with whiplash, injured parties can suffer from severe neck and back injuries that can cause serious mobility issues.

Herniated discs are common in motorcycle and truck accidents. Bony fractures are common in slip-and-fall accidents.

In both cases, victims could see their medical bills increase by as much as $100,000 before other treatment costs are factored in.

Psychological Trauma

Bradenton Wrongful Death Lawyer

Along with physical injuries, people can suffer psychological and emotional injuries, such as emotional distress, anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), especially in cases of severe accidents.

Emotional trauma is just as expensive to treat as physical trauma. For example, treatment of accident-related phobias can take years to complete and cost victims hundreds of dollars per hour.
