More than one person can be held responsible for personal injury. If this is the case, you may be compensated by all parties involved. These cases are more complicated and require experienced counsel, such as myself, to yield the highest compensation possible as a result of the suit.
Types of personal injury cases include:
- Auto accidents
- Product liability
- Slip and fall
- Dog bites and other domesticated animal inflicted harm
- Premises liability
- Medical malpractice
The proof of personal injury caused by harmful or defective products differs slightly from other personal injury cases. Florida law states that companies have what is called strict liability. What this means is the company is obligated to make absolutely certain their products are safe. If the product in question was clearly harmful and/or defective, you may receive compensation for the personal injury that occurred as a result of using the companies product.
Are you partially to blame for your injury?
If you are partially to blame for your injury, you may still have a case. According to Florida’s comparative negligence law, if the opposing party is less than 25% responsible for your injury you can only receive compensation up to $200,000. The exact percentage of blame on the opposing party will directly impact the highest compensation you are allowed to collect as a result of your case.
At the end of the day, each personal injury case is unique. Given my vast experience with a variety of different personal injury cases, I am well positioned to serve each of these unique circumstances with expertise and success. If you have been in an accident and need a personal injury attorney in Weston, Florida — or any surrounding areas — I have the knowledge and experience that can help yield an outcome for your case that is favorable for you and your loved ones.
Personal injuries can be a very sensitive subject. Discretion and reassurance for my clients are a top priority. Accident lawyers often focus solely on the outcome of the case with very little concern or empathy for their clients' personal needs. My goal is to be better and to truly understand my clients' needs. With this goal I am better able to serve my clients with that empathy; it allows me to see beyond the numbers and really give the proper attention to each clients’ legal and personal needs. To be a great personal injury attorney means I go above and beyond the average lawyer to serve my clients.
