What Types of Florida Personal Injury Cases Can DSK Law Help Me With?
There are many situations that may give rise to a personal injury claim in Florida. Some of the more common examples we see at DSK Law include:
- Car, truck, bicycle & pedestrian accidents– At some point in our lives, we are all involved in some sort of crash involving one or more motor vehicles. Florida is a “no-fault” state with respect to car insurance. This means your own insurer is expected to compensate you for any out-of-pocket costs you sustained as the result of an accident. However, if you suffered a “serious injury,” as defined by Florida law, you can directly sue the negligent parties for damages.
- Premises liability accidents– Often referred to colloquially as “slip and fall” accidents, this type of claim deals with injuries a person suffers while on someone else’s property. A common example is a customer who slips on a puddle of water in a supermarket aisle. But any time there is a safety hazard that a premises owner fails to notice or correct, an injured person is on the property lawfully may have a claim for damages.
- Professional Malpractice– Sometimes it’s not the accident that causes the most significant injury, but the negligence of the people charged with treating your injuries. If you are the victim of healthcare malpractice, you have the right to sue a negligent doctor, hospital, or related professional for damages. And outside of the healthcare field, you can pursue professional negligence claims again other trusted professionals, such as stockbrokers and even attorneys you previously hired to represent you.
- Dangerous & Defective Products– Any consumer product that is defectively designed, manufactured, or marketed can seriously injure an unsuspecting consumer. If you are the injured consumer, you may have the right to compensation from a number of parties, including the manufacturer, distributor, seller, or repairer of the defective product.
