Kendall is a city in Miami, Florida of approximately 75,000 inhabitants. Founded in 1883, the city was named after Henry John Broughton Kendall, the director of the Florida Land and Mortgage Company. Today, Kendall is home to a large concentration of Colombian Americans and families who prefer to retreat within the city’s calm suburban neighborhoods.

Accidents are a fact of life in Kendall and other areas of Florida. When negligence causes an accident resulting in injury, personal injury law provides a legal recourse for the victim. Basic principles of negligence dictate that people are liable for injuries proximately caused by their breach of duty to others. Drivers, for example, breach their duty to others when they fail to safely operate their motor vehicles. Florida law protects accident victims whose injuries are caused by another person’s intoxication or negligent driving. An experienced Kendall car accident attorney can help you recover compensation for property damage, medical expenses, lost income, and other damages related to your injury.
Negligence also applies to defective products. When consumers are harmed by any foreseeable use of a product, the manufacturer may be liable in damages. Various flaws in the make, marketing, or design of a product can give rise to a product liability claim. Clothing, for example, can contain flammable material that combusts when brought close to heat. A defective car part can cause a car 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.
Like motorists and manufacturer, physicians can also be negligent when they breach their duty of care to patients: the greater the level of specialty, the higher the standard of care. Any negligence by the physicians or health care providers during pregnancy and delivery can lead to serious harm. The misuse of Pitocin and vacuum extractors can cause birth injuries, having long-term effects on both mother and child. The same is true of health care providers who are negligent or abusive to elderly patients. Caretakers who intentionally or recklessly harm their patients are liable for injuries that result. Any physical, emotional, or psychological harm can give rise to a patient’s malpractice claim.
As the injured party, you are entitled to compensation for the various financial losses you suffer as a result of negligence. These are costs that the liable party must pay. This is true whether the negligent party was the driver who collided with your vehicle, the manufacturer who made a defective product, or the physician who botched a medical procedure. The experienced Kendall personal injury lawyers of Anidjar & Levine can help you recover for property damage, medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.
