Motor vehicle accidents happen in Pembroke Pines and other areas of Florida. If your injury was caused by a negligent driver, Florida law gives you legal rights to recover damages from any responsible person or party. Negligence refers to the duty of care owed to others. Drivers, for example, have a duty to safely operate their cars. Breaching that duty results in legal liability for injuries caused by the driver’s negligence. Accidents bring with expensive car repairs and hospital bills that can lead to financial ruin. Even if the at-fault driver is insured, the insurer will only pay up to the policy limit, leaving you stranded if you suffered more than a bare minimum of property damage or bodily injury. A Pembroke Pines car accident lawyer can ensure you and your loved ones are fully compensated for the harm you suffer.
Manufacturers have a duty to protect the buyer from foreseeable harm caused by their products. Parties injured by a defective product may sue the manufacturer for damages caused by the product’s make, construction, or design. Florida law holds manufacturers strictly liable for injuries caused by dangerous products that harm the consumer through their intended or “reasonably foreseeable” use. In some product liability actions, negligence is implied. Injured victims can thus hold the manufacturer liable without proving a breach of duty.
Physicians, doctors, and their staff are negligent when they breach their duty of care to patients. Negligence during any stage of the patient’s treatment can give rise to a medical malpractice claim. Mistakes during delivery, for example, can result in birth defects such as cerebral palsy. In hospitals and assisted living facilities, the abuse or neglect of elderly patients can likewise be lethal to the patient and devastating for family. Health care providers who are negligent at any stage of treatment, from giving birth to treatment in a hospice, are liable for any harm that results.
Employers and property owners also have a duty to keep the premises safe for people who enter the property. This may require fixing steps to prevent slip-and-fall injuries or posting workplace safety standards to minimize exposure to toxic chemicals. The person in control of the property must keep the premises clear of dangerous conditions and perform reasonable repairs. Dangerous conditions can mean dim lights, broken locks, or a spilled drink. They include a wide range of conditions, from inadequate security to an overzealous guard dog. Owners who breach their duty to exercise reasonable care are liable for any resulting injuries.
As the injured party, you are entitled to compensation for property damage, medical expenses, lost income, and other benefits. In some cases, the court may also award punitive damages, pain and suffering or attorney’s fees and costs.
