Pompano Beach is a city in southern Florida of approximately 1 million inhabitants. Founded in 1896 by George Butler and Frank Sheene, Pompano was named after the diversity of fish and wildlife found along its coast. The city is in the midst of a major redevelopment project that will restore its beachfront and invigorate the downtown area. Known for its clean coastline and glamorous vacation homes, Pompano Beach was listed by CNN and the Wall Street Journal as one of the top real estate markets.

Accidents are a fact of life in Pompano Beach and other parts of Florida. When negligence causes an accident that results 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 a duty when they fail to safely operate their vehicles. Florida law protects accident victims whose injuries are caused by another person’s negligent driving.
Negligence also applies to defective products. When consumers are injured by a foreseeable use of a product, the manufacturer may be liable in damages. Various flaws in the product’s make, marketing, or design can give rise to legal 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 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.
Employers and landowners have a duty to keep their property 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 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. The breach of duty subjects property owners to a premises liability claim.
When a doctor breaches a duty of care to a 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 certain standard of care. They can breach this duty by neglecting their patients or depriving them of the medical attention they require. This may involve a wide range of conduct, from failing to administer necessary medication to perpetrating insurance fraud. 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 for damages inflicted upon their patient.
