Unfortunately, accidents happen daily in Coral Springs and other areas of Florida. When another person’s careless conduct causes an accident resulting in injury, the law provides a remedy for the victim. Under personal injury law, at-fault parties are responsible for any injuries incurred as a result of their negligence. Drivers, for example, breach a legal duty when they fail to safely operate their cars. Negligent driving includes a wide range of activity, from a failure to pay attention to driving under the influence. Florida law protects accident victims whose injuries are caused by another person’s negligence. An experienced auto accident lawyer can help you recover compensation for property damage, medical costs, lost income, and other out-of-pocket expenses related to your injury.
Negligence also applies to makers of defective products. When consumers are injured by any intended or “foreseeable” use of a product, the manufacturer may be liable in damages. Various defects in the make, model, or design of a product can give rise to liability. Clothing, for example, may contain flammable material that combusts when exposed to heat. A defective part can cause a vehicle to roll over or explode in a crash. Hundreds of cars, clothes, and baby toys are recalled every year because some flaw in the product causes injury to the consumer. If you or a family member was harmed by a dangerous product, a qualified product liability lawyer can help you obtain compensation for your harm.
Employers and landowners have a duty to keep the premises safe for workers and invitees. This may require inspecting the floors to prevent slip-and-fall accidents or complying with workplace safety standards to ensure workers are not exposed to toxic chemicals. Whether the property is used for living, business, or work, the person in control of the property has a duty to maintain the premises in a state of reasonable repair. Owners who fail to fix a dangerous condition that can harm the invitee are liable for any injury that results. The dangerous condition can be anything from slippery floors or improper waste disposal to a vicious pet. The breach of duty subjects property owners to a premises liability claim.
Likewise, when a doctor breaches a duty of care to the patient, the victim can bring a medical malpractice claim to obtain compensation for the injury. Like other professionals, physicians and health care providers are held to a high standard of care. They can breach this duty by neglecting patients or depriving them of the medical treatment they require. This may involve a wide range of conduct, from failing to administer the proper medication to making a mistake during surgery. Elder abuse and other forms of medical negligence provide grounds for a malpractice claim. When health care providers intentionally or recklessly inflict physical or emotional harm, they are liable in damages to the patient.
