After being injured in a car accident, you will need to deal with an insurance company in order to recover the damages you are owed. However, insurance companies and their lawyers are not there to give away maximum damages. Instead, they will work to offer you a minimum settlement, and have you sign an agreement that you will not seek any additional damages in the future. Do not make any agreements with an insurance company without consulting an attorney!
Unfortunately, Florida is the most dangerous state in the country for motorcycles. Because of this fact, we understand how important it is to have a team who is experienced in motorcycle accident cases, including personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. At speeds which would be a simple fender bender between two passenger cars, the collision can be catastrophic for a motorcycle rider. When you deal with insurance companies regarding motorcycle accidents, they will look for ways to place a percentage of fault on the motorcycle rider, and decrease their payments by that amount. We will make sure that you have a fair fight towards what you are owed.
Ride-sharing apps such as Uber and Lyft are increasingly common, and therefore the number of accidents that occur involving them are increasing as well. Uber partners with a series of major insurers across the United States, and when dealing with them, they can be very aggressive, and work to pay out as little as possible when there is an injury following an accident involving one of their drivers. However, we will look at our options and determine how we will seek the appropriate damages for your accident.
While not extremely common, bus accidents can cause serious injury or even death when they do occur. We work with victims of any type of bus accident, from a child injured on a school bus, to an adult injured on public transportation or a private coach. This includes a passenger of a bus, or a pedestrian, bicyclist, or motorist struck by a bus in a traffic accident. Bus drivers carry significant insurance policies, and the process of claims and settlements can be very complicated when dealing with the extensive factors that go into this situation.
Slip & Fall
Slip and fall is a premise liability claim, meaning that you are injured on another party’s premise, and are seeking financial compensation because of your accident. A slip and fall must prove that the party responsible for the property did, or should have, recognized that there was a safety hazard, and that they should have come up with a remedy. This could be a solution as simple as a “wet floor” sign placed beneath a leaky roof, if they did not have adequate time to fix the roof itself. If you are able to prove that they were aware of, or should have been aware of, the hazard, and did not take appropriate steps to keep you safe, then you may be able to proceed with a case.
Jobsite injuries come in many forms, and oftentimes you are covered by Worker’s Compensation in Florida. In this case, you are protected financially against your medical bills and lost wages, and your employer is covered against personal injury suits. This means that you are unable to seek damages for pain and suffering, and other non-economic damages. However, if your injury was the result of a faulty product, we may be able to explore other options to seek additional compensation for your injuries.
