Hialeah is a city in South Florida with a population of around 225,000 inhabitants. First named by the Seminole Indians for the beauty of its prairies, Hialeah remains a “flat” land between the Everglades and Biscayne Bay. Known at one time as the playground of the rich, Hialeah became home to many hardworking immigrants, contributing to the city’s character and diverse legacy.

Despite its tranquil name, Hialeah sees its share of accidents and fatalities. When the accident is caused by another party’s reckless conduct, injured victims have legal recourse through a personal injury claim. Personal injury is based on the idea of negligence, or the breach of duty owed to another party. This concept can be applied to most accidents caused by the tortious conduct of others. Negligent drivers, for example, breach their duty to other motorists when they fail to pay attention or neglect basic traffic laws, injuring the people around them. The purpose of Florida insurance laws is to ensure negligent drivers take financial responsibility for the property damage and injuries they cause. Anidjar & Levine’s Hialeah car accident lawyers work diligently to ensure victims are fully compensated for their injuries.
Employers and landowners also have a duty to make sure their premises are safe. This may require inspecting the floors to prevent slips and falls or complying with workplace safety standards to ensure workers are not exposed to hazardous substances. Whether the property is used for living, business, or work, the person in control must maintain the premises and perform reasonable repairs. If the owner is aware of a dangerous condition and allows it to persist, he or she is liable for any injury that results. The dangerous condition can be anything from fallen merchandise or loose handrails to a vicious pet. They subject the property owner to a premises liability claim.
Like drivers and property owners, manufacturers can also be held liable when a defective product harms the consumer. The defect can be in the product’s make, marketing, or design. Even if the product is made to be used a certain way, manufacturers are still liable if consumers are injured while using the product in other “foreseeable” ways. Toy blocks, for example, are designed to teach kids to play and build, but it is also foreseeable that babies could place the object in their mouths. Dangerous toys that choke, strangle, or otherwise harm the baby can give rise to a product liability claim. A creative Hialeah product liability lawyer can help you identify all liable parties and obtain the best outcome possible in your case.
