Florida Personal Injury Lawyer
As a personal injury attorney in Florida, I've handled over 4,500 claims on behalf of people hurt in accidents, slip and falls, premises liability, general negligence, bed bugs, food poisoning, and other personal injury-type claims.
Types of Florida Personal Injury Claims:
Slip and Fall - This is where a restaurant, department store, convenience store or grocery store, for example, fail to properly clean and maintain their aisles or property and someone slips and falls. We see cases where there are no wet floor signs, understaffed stores who don't properly check the floors for debris and liquid, and general carelessness and failure to reasonably maintain their property.
Beg Bugs - We are seeing more and more bed bug cases in our firm from hotels that fail to properly train their cleaning staff on how to clean the hotel room, fail to properly fumigate known cases of bed bugs and fail to properly inspect the hotel room for insects.
Falling Objects - Stores with limited space often try to stack boxes and merchandise at levels above our heads in an effort to maximize their space. When they stack merchandise improperly or fail to secure the boxes on the shelves, the merchandise can fall onto a customer and cause injuries. If this happens, the customer may have a claim against the store to recover damages for their personal injuries. These included claims against Publix and Walmart.
Prescription Drug Errors - Pharmacists mess up sometimes. That's a fact. When a pharmacy gives you the wrong dose or wrong medication, the results can be deadly or extremely harmful. If you were injured after getting the wrong prescription, wrong dosage or wrong medication, you may be entitled to money for pain and suffering and medical expenses.
Elevator Accidents - If you were in an elevator that felt like a "Tower of Terror" going up and down out of control, or tripped and fell going in or out of an elevator because of uneven leveling, you may have an elevator accident case. Elevators are required to have a specific degree of care and maintenance, and are heavily regulated. property owners or elevator maintenance companies may be negligent if they fail to maintain the elevator.
Accidental Shooting - Gun owners have a duty to properly store and secure their weapons to keep them from children. If someone is accidentally shot by a gun or BB gun, the gun owner or homeowner may be negligent.
Nursing Home Negligence - When you have a loved one who is mistreated, sustains bed sores, is abused, or otherwise neglected, you may have a nursing home negligence claim in Florida. Nursing homes in Florida are regulated and are required by law to provide reasonable care to your loved one. When they neglect this duty in a nursing home, you may be entitled to recover for pain and suffering, medical expenses, and other damages.
Food Poisoning - State regulations require adequate food preparation in restaurants and hotels. We've handled many food poisoning and food object claims including those involving stomach upset, diarrhea, vomiting, blender pieces in drinks and food, gloves in food, and other objects found in food.
Swimming Pool Injuries - Thousands of people are injured or killed each year as a result of swimming pool injuries. Common claims include accidental drowning, slip and fall by the pool, lifeguard negligence, inhalation injuries from over chlorination, burn injuries in hot tubs, and pool pump drownings.
Sexual Assault and Molestation - We've handled many, many cases on behalf of victims of sexual assault and molestation throughout Florida. Regardless of whether the police pursue a criminal case, you may also have the right to pursue a civil claim for money damages, pain and suffering, past and future medical expenses and other damages. We investigate the crime to see if it could have been prevented and fight to hold those responsible accountable.
