Delray Beach, Florida
Delray Beach is a city in southern Florida of approximately 65,000 inhabitants. First settled by the Native Americans, Delray Beach became a refuge for runaway slaves. The first African-Americans began to settle the land around 1884, planting the seeds of what would become one of the most important agricultural centers in Florida. Known for its vast pineapple plantations and canning plants, Delray Beach continues to export a large portion of the fruit we eat today.

Like other cities in Florida, Delray Beach sees its share of accidents. When an accident is caused by another party’s negligence, injured victims can pursue relief through a personal injury claim. Tort law is based on negligence, the concept that one person can breach of a duty of care owed to another. This standard applies to most accidents that involve bodily harm. Drivers, for example, breach a legal duty when they fail to safely operate their cars, injuring other drivers. Florida insurance laws ensure negligent drivers take financial responsibility for the property damage and bodily injury they cause. Anidjar & Levine’s Delray Beach car accident lawyers work diligently to ensure victims receive full compensation for their harm.
Employers and landowners have a duty to ensure their premises are safe. This may require inspecting the floors to prevent slip-and-fall accidents or complying with workplace safety standards to prevent exposure to toxic chemicals. Whether the property is used for living, retail, or employment, the person in control of the property must make sure there are no dangerous conditions and perform reasonable repairs. If a dangerous condition is allowed to persist, the owner is liable for any injury that results. The dangerous condition can be anything that injures an invitee, from a broken faucet to a vicious pet.
Manufacturers are negligent when a defect in the product’s make, marketing, or design causes harm to consumers. 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. A drug, for example, may be prescribed to treat one illness, but may be defective if it causes serious side effects such as stomach ulcers, birth defects, or suicide. Dangerous products that burn, choke, or otherwise harm the consumer can also rise to a product liability claim.
Doctors have a duty to properly care for their patients. Physicians who violate this standard of care are liable in malpractice to their victims. A breach occurs when health care providers neglect their elderly patients or deprive them of basic necessities. Elder abuse is a common ground for malpractice, where the intentional or reckless conduct of the caretaker exposes the patient to physical or emotional harm. This can occur through isolation, fraud, or duress. Medical professionals are liable for any intentional or negligent infliction of injury to the patient. A Delray Beach medical malpractice attorney can ensure you are fully compensated for any malpractice committed in a hospital, assisted living facility, or elsewhere.
