Accidents happen, and the aftermath can be overwhelming. Medical bills pile up, work takes a backseat, and the emotional toll can be immense. But amidst the chaos, there is hope. Personal injury lawyers are here to help.

These specialized legal professionals fight for individuals who have been injured due to another’s negligence – essentially, their carelessness. They work tirelessly to recoup what you’re owed, including medical expenses, lost wages, and even compensation for your pain and suffering.

But here’s the thing: personal injury law is a broad field. Just like doctors have different specialties, lawyers do too. So, before you pick any lawyer, it’s important to find one who has experience handling cases similar to yours.

What Types of Cases Do We Handle?

Premises Liability

Accidents happen, and sometimes they happen on someone else’s property. If you’re injured due to a dangerous condition on someone else’s land, you might have a premises liability case. In simple terms, that means the property owner’s negligence caused your accident.

Here in Florida, property owners have a responsibility to keep their land safe for visitors. This duty changes depending on why you were there. When you are shopping at a grocery store, you are considered an invitee. The grocery store owes a duty of care to you, the invitee.

For invited guests like you, property owners must:

  • Keep their property reasonably safe
  • Regularly check for dangers
  • Fix any hazards promptly

 Product Liability

Unfortunately, even with regulations in place, defective products can slip through the cracks. But here’s the good news: you have options.

The law protects consumers from harm caused by dangerous products. If you’ve been injured by a faulty item, the companies involved in its design, manufacturing, or sale can be held accountable.

Sexual Assault

While sexual assault is always a crime, you might have additional options beyond pressing charges. In some cases, victims can also choose to file a civil lawsuit against their attacker. This civil action aims to recover compensation for the damages they suffered due to the assault.

These damages can go beyond the physical aspect. Compensation can cover economic damages, such as medical bills and lost wages due to the assault. Additionally, the emotional impact of the assault, including long-term trauma or emotional distress requiring therapy and rehabilitation, can also be factored into the compensation you seek.

Wrongful Death

The loss of a loved one in an incident caused by another’s negligence is an unimaginable tragedy. An experienced attorney can guide you through each step, from gathering evidence and negotiating with insurance companies to filing legal claims. This allows you and your family the space to grieve while ensuring your rights are protected.

FAQ’s on “What Types of Cases do Personal Injury Lawyers Handle?”

Q : What type of compensation can I recover for my claim?

The answer depends on the specifics of your case. However, some common types of compensation in personal injury claims include:

    may be able to recover compensation for the income you lose.
