In Florida, auto accidents can be a result of numerous factors. From speeding and texting to careless driving and negligence, there are many reasons a car accident may occur. If you’ve been the victim of a drunk, distracted, or careless driver, your life may be turned upside down. Just because someone wasn’t driving responsibly doesn’t mean you should have to pay medical bills and suffer ongoing pain and discomfort. Under Florida law, you should be compensated by the person who caused your injuries. Typical damages related to an auto accident may include damages to property (such as a car or other motor vehicle), and bodily injury (damage to the people in the vehicle themselves). For legal purposes, a bodily injury claim is often sub-divided into two distinct categories:
- Economic Damages: This may include past and future medical expenses wage loss, and any other additional expenses related to physical impairment and disfigurement.
- Non-Economic Damages: This may include pain, suffering, physical impairment, and loss of enjoyment of life.

You can trust our Florida motorcycle accident lawyers to help you receive the compensation and restitution you deserve for your injuries.

If you need legal assistance for your motorcycle accident case, contact our professionals today.
Slip and Fall Accidents
If you’ve been the victim of a Florida slip-and-fall accident, you may be able to seek compensation for your injuries. Generally, slip-and-fall accidents occur anytime a person loses their footing, falls, and is injured on another person’s property. Under the Florida Premises Liability Law, a landowner or businessowner must keep their property in a reasonably safe condition for customers and guests at all times. If the problem isn’t fixed and someone falls and injures themselves, the owner or manager of the property is responsible for the injury. This is also known as negligence, and the injured party may be able to sue. If you’ve suffered from any of the accidents below, contact our legal team today.
- Trip-and-fall: This is when a person falls over an object that is in their path, or they trip over an uneven surface.
- Step-and-fall: This is when a person falls and becomes injured due to a hole or a low spot in the path.
- Slip-and-fall: This is when a slippery liquid or object causes a person to fall.
If you’ve been injured on the job due to transportation accidents, falls, exposure to harmful substances, or other work-related incidents that can cause injury and death, it may be helpful to reach out to a Workers’ Compensation attorney. The goal of workers’ compensation is to make it possible for an injured employee to focus on getting the necessary medical treatment and financial compensation they deserve for missing days, weeks, or months of work. Without these laws in place, the injured party would likely be forced to litigate his or her claim against an employer, thus delaying the medical process and deepening the financial hardship.
