Accidental injuries and fatalities are unfortunately common in Davie and South Florida. They are usually caused by recklessness or negligence. Personal injury law is based on negligence, which assigns liability to parties who breach a legal duty to others. In traffic accidents, for example, motorists breach a legal duty when they fail to safely operate their cars. These drivers become liable for any injuries that result. In Florida, auto insurance is not mandatory. Even if drivers are insured, most policies do not cover all the costs incurred by injured victims. An auto accident lawyer can help see that at-fault drivers pay for their negligence.
Similarly, employers and property owners have a duty to exercise reasonable care. This may require measures to prevent clients from falling on a slippery surface or breaking their necks on uneven steps. It may also require restraining a vicious pet so that it does not injure an invitee on the premises. Property owners who fail to remove or repair a dangerous condition breach their duty to safely maintain the premises. Florida’s premises liability law holds owners liable for any injuries caused by the breach.
Doctors also owe a legal duty of care to their patients. Because of their level of expertise in a given medical field, specialists must meet or exceed a heightened standard of care. Obstetricians, for example, may be responsible for any injuries caused by delivery mishaps. Any delayed reaction during labor may result in birth injuries, causing permanent impairment. An experienced medical malpractice lawyer knows how to paint an accurate portrait of the substantial costs resulting from the physician’s negligence.
If a defective product causes injury, an attorney can present a strong argument that the manufacturer is liable. Florida law prescribes strict liability for injuries caused by any defective product. This allows plaintiffs to obtain compensation for medical costs, lost income, and other damages without showing negligence on the part of the manufacturer. Manufacturers are presumed negligent when they fail correct product defects or adequately warn consumers of danger. As such, they may have to pay additional punitive damages, attorney’s fees and costs.
