Personal injury revolves around the concept of negligence. Negligent parties breach a duty of care owed to others, proximately causing an injury. When this occurs, the party at-fault is liable for damages and harm resulting from their negligence.
Car accidents, for example, are often caused by driver negligence. Some motorists get distracted or speed through intersections, placing others in peril. If this happens, drivers are said to “breach” their duty of care to other motorists or pedestrians. They are liable for any injury that results from their conduct. Because car accidents are a common fact of life in North Miami and the rest of Miami-Dade County, Florida law requires drivers to carry a minimum of auto insurance. But if extensive property damage or bodily injury is involved, the bare minimum insurance coverage is never enough.
Sometimes, the accident is caused by a defective car part or some flaw in the vehicle. Leading car manufacturers issue factory recalls when defective brakes, floor mats, and gear shifts can cause injure drivers. Leaks in the engine or surrounding valves can also cause a car or SUV to catch fire, endangering the passengers. When a flaw in a vehicle, car seat, or product results in harm to the user, the injured party can bring a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer. Because manufacturers have a duty to correct defects and warn consumers of potential dangers, they may be strictly liable for resulting injuries. This means that injured parties can recover compensation for medical expenses, lost income, punitive damages, and other costs without proving negligence.
Like drivers and manufacturers, doctors can also be negligent when they breach their duty of care to patients. Obstetricians, for example, can crush a baby’s neck during delivery, causing permanent disability to the child. The improper administration of labor-inducing drugs can likewise harm the mother. Any number of mistakes during pregnancy and delivery can injure the patient, causing in severe financial injury and loss. That is why evaluating an injury victim’s future costs is so important to supporting a malpractice claim.
