With over 21 million residents, the state of Florida is ripe for personal injury claims. Personal injury claims can come in many different forms. In fact, any injury caused by someone else’s negligence falls under personal injury law. This is even more crucial to remember in Florida, as its personal injury laws recognize that the process of treating these injuries incur high costs that must be compensated accordingly.
The team at Waring Law is steeped in Florida personal injury law and has the knowledge and experience to help you navigate the potentially complicated road ahead of you so that you can get the compensation you deserve. With such experience, Waring Law has handled almost every type of personal injury case there is, the following four of which are among the most common.
Florida routinely ranks among the national leaders in car and motorcycle accidents. Car accidents always rank as one of the top causes of personal injury lawsuits, as they are among the most common types of accident overall. The climate encourages more motorcycle riders than in other places—combined with the fact that Florida does not require most riders to wear helmets.
While slip and fall cases because of icy, slick, improperly cleared sidewalks or walkways rarely happen in Florida, there are many other situations in which a slip and fall is considered the result of negligent behavior. For instance, if something spills in a grocery store aisle and is not cleaned up in a timely manner, the store may be liable for any injuries which may result. Any dangerous condition in a retail, office, or corporate environment may constitute negligence in a slip and fall accident. You may also be compensated for damages if you fall and injure yourself on private property, such as slipping down someone’s front steps, or falling over an obstacle on their front path.
Florida is known for its top-notch medical care facilities, but that also means a high rate of medical malpractice claims. When you go to your local hospital or emergency room, you expect to receive the standard of care all doctors and medical professionals swear to uphold. These types of personal injury lawsuits include many aspects of negligence, such as surgical errors, prescription errors, anesthesia overdose, birth injuries, and delayed or improper diagnosis. Mistakes can result in life-altering injuries and even wrongful death.
Product liability claims often involve injuries sustained from a product that is dangerous due to faulty manufacturing or flawed design. Defective or dangerous products include motor vehicles, children’s toys, electronic cigarette explosions, dangerous pharmaceutical drugs or devices, and many more. Product liability claims apply to any item that causes unreasonable harm due to inadequate testing, failure to correct or identify a flaw and the danger it poses, or failure to warn consumers using hazard warnings on the product or the box that contained it upon purchase.
