Navigating through complex negligence cases
When an accident occurs, it is common for the injured parties to claim that those responsible for the accident were negligent and failed to provide reasonable safety measures that could have prevented the injury. The following are the most common issues related to negligence we see at our firm:
- Product liability. If a manufacturer designs and sells a defective product, the user could suffer a serious injury. Negligence is often the reason for defective or poorly designed products.
- Premises liability. Property owners, especially businesses, have a responsibility to maintain reasonably safe conditions for customers and guests. If there is a safety hazard and the property owner failed to address it in a timely manner, there might be grounds for lawsuit.
- Auto accidents. One of the first steps to take after a car crash is to determine fault. In many cases, distracted driving or driving while under the influence are factors in Florida car accidents, and it takes a knowledgeable lawyer to investigate the exact cause.
Helping you file a wrongful death claim
After the death of a loved one in an accident, the family members of the deceased may decide to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the parties responsible. These lawsuits tend to seek economic, noneconomic and punitive damages, especially if negligence or recklessness were factors in the death.
The laws surrounding this issue are guided by the Florida Wrongful Death Act, which allows the survivors of the deceased to file a wrongful death claim. Survivors includes immediate family members (spouses, children and parents), life partners, financial dependents and distant relatives.
