Accidents: Bodily Injury and Wrongful Death
We live in an increasingly busy and crowded community in which serious accidents result in injury, and even death to persons who have become victims of the negligence of another. In Florida, the victim may be assessed a percentage of fault which reduces the value of a settlement or Final Judgment, but one should never allow the possibility of shared fault to prevent them from consulting with a good attorney to evaluate and pursue a just result. Accidents involving automobiles, commercial trucks, motorcycles, boats, and airplanes are a common source of serious injury and death to victims of negligence. Owners of property have an obligation to the public, as well, to maintain a safe condition of their property, and to be aware and safeguard against harm to the public lawfully on their premises. This includes being aware of the threat of criminal conduct and taking steps to minimize the threat. Serious injuries resulting from negligent conduct can often equal or exceed the seriousness of a wrongful death claim. If negligence results in the death of a loved one, nothing can ever adequately compensate the family members for their loss. But we can ensure that all persons entitled to compensation are included in the estate’s claim, whether qualifying wife or child, dependent relative, parent or spouse, and that the economic losses to the estate and to the survivors are pursued completely. Non-economic losses may include the pain and suffering of the survivors, loss of the deceased’s services and support, compensation and protection, guidance and instruction of a minor. A complete understanding of the life of the person lost and those left behind is required to adequately represent the victims of such a tragedy. We pursue that goal thoroughly in our representation in every case. If you have been seriously injured or have suffered the loss of a loved one as a result of negligence, please call us at 727-209-1504. There are never any fees charged unless we win your case or settle your case with your consent. We welcome referrals from other trial attorneys.
