Boca Raton is a city in southern Florida of approximately 85,000 inhabitants. Founded in 1895, Boca Raton was named after the mouth of a rat. Despite its humble beginnings, the city became home to the famous Ritz-Carlton, which later became the Boca Raton Resort & Club. Known for this “pink hotel” and its proximity to the Intracoastal Waterway, Boca Raton remains one of Florida’s most popular retirement destinations.

Accidents happen in Boca Raton and other areas of Florida. When negligence causes an accident resulting in injury, personal injury law provides a legal recourse for the victim. Basic principles of negligence state that people are liable for injuries proximately caused by their breach of duty to others. Drivers, for example, have a duty to safely operate their motor vehicles. They breach that duty they fail to pay attention or drive while intoxicated, injuring others on the road. Florida law protects accident victims whose injuries are caused by negligent driving. An experienced Boca Raton car accident attorney can help you bring a legal claim for repairs, medical expenses, lost income, and other damages related to your injury.
Negligence also applies to defective products. When consumers are harmed by any foreseeable use of a product, the manufacturer may be liable in damages. Various flaws in the make, design, or assembly of a product can give rise to a product liability claim. Clothing, for example, may have flammable fibers that combust when exposed to heat. A malfunctioning safety mechanism can cause a car to roll over or catch fire in a crash. Hundreds of cars, toys, and prescription drugs are recalled every year because some defect in the product causes injury to the consumer. You may be entitled to compensation for these injuries.
Landowners have a duty to protect invitees from unreasonable harm. Those who fail to repair a dangerous condition are liable for injuries caused by that breach. A dangerous condition can be a broken elevator or loose handrails that cause tenants to fall. Business owners must periodically check the floors for spills that could potentially trip customers. Foremen have a similar duty to inspect construction sites to make sure no loose nails or wiring will injure the workers. When invitees are injured by a dangerous condition on property, they can bring a premises liability suit.
Physicians are negligent when they breach their duty of care to patients. Any negligence by health care providers during delivery can lead to serious harm. The misuse of epidurals and vacuum extractors can cause birth injuries, having long-term effects on both mother and child. Negligence during the birthing process can also crush the baby’s nerve center, permanently damaging the child’s motor skills. Caretakers who intentionally or recklessly harm their patients are liable for any injuries that result. Any physical, emotional, or psychological harm can give rise to a malpractice claim.
As the injured party, you are entitled to compensation for the various financial losses you suffer as a result of negligence. These are costs the liable party must bear. This is true whether the negligent party was the driver who collided with your vehicle, the manufacturer who made a defective product, the property owner who failed to remove a dangerous condition, or the physician who botched your medical procedure.
