Accidents happen in Coral Gables 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, breach their duty to other motorists when they fail to safely operate their vehicles. Florida law protects accident victims whose injuries are caused by negligent driving. An experienced Coral Gables car accident attorney can help you recover compensation for car 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 marketing 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, clothes, and baby toys are recalled every year because some defect in the product causes injury to the consumer.
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 uneven steps 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 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 the physicians or health care providers during delivery can lead to serious harm. The misuse of Pitocin and vacuum extractors can cause birth injuries, having long-term effects on both mother and child. Mistakes during birthing can crush the brachial plexus, causing cerebral palsy, affecting the child’s motor skills. Caretakers who intentionally or recklessly harm their patients are liable for injuries that result. Any physical, emotional, or psychological harm can give rise to a patient’s 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, or the physician who botched a medical procedure.
