3 Ways You Could Get Injured By Someone's Negligence
 In Florida

There are many, many ways a person can get seriously hurt in this world. Sometimes, people don't make smart decisions, and they are responsible for their own injuries. In such situations, individuals can't recover compensation from anyone because they are the ones to blame. However, in some instances, other parties are negligent. Their actions lead to incidents that leave victims seriously hurt.

When that happens, the injured might have the grounds to seek compensation. Hence, if somebody else's negligence or recklessness turns your life upside down, and you'd like to see if filing a lawsuit against them is in your best interest, please, contact our office and schedule a free case evaluation with an attorney. Aside from the initial consultation not costing you a dime, there's another reason to choose us too. Our personal injury clients only owe fees when they win. That's right; if we don't recover compensation, you won't have to pay.

Doing nothing could leave you on the hook for medical bills and other expenses. Why should that be the case if you didn't do anything wrong? It shouldn't, that's for sure. So, let us fight for the compensation you deserve and hold the negligent party responsible for their actions. It is now time to discuss some of the ways you could get injured by negligence. Hence, if your interest is piqued, don't disappear. Instead, stick around and read on to learn more.

A Trucker Dozes Off

Truck drivers spend a lot of time on the open road. They travel from place to place, making deliveries and ensuring that people always have goods readily available to purchase. That's all fine and dandy, but if tractor-trailer operators don't get enough rest or take medications that make them sleepy, they can doze off at the wheel. If you happen to be nearby when a situation occurs, that might be terrible news. Why? Because the truck could hit your car head-on, in the rear, or on the side, leaving you with problems such as:

• Broken Bones
• Brain Damage
• Neck Or Back Injuries

A Texting Driver

Distracted driving is a real problem in Florida and the rest of the United States. And cell phones are one big reason why that is. People just can't seem to the devices alone, not even while they're driving. Obviously, if a motorist is supposed to be paying attention to their surroundings instead of staring at their phone screen, that can be problematic. For instance, if you are attempting to use a crosswalk to cross the street at a red light, the texting driver could miss what's going on because of the distraction and run you over.

Then again, you could be driving and passing through a 4-way intersection, only to have a texter smash into the driver's side of your car because they were preoccupied with their phone. There are many ways that texting and driving can go wrong, but we won't try to get into all of them here. Just know that if a distracted driver is responsible for your accident, you might be entitled to fair compensation.

A Drunk Driver

People shouldn't operate machinery after they've been consuming alcohol. Yet, lots of folks chug beers, spirits, or wine and then drive cars. An intoxicated motorist near you could be a recipe for disaster. They can drive too fast and hit your vehicle in the rear, slam on the brakes suddenly for no reason, causing you to slam into them, or swerve across the median, where their auto meets yours in a head-on collision. 

These are three ways you could get injured by someone's negligence. If one of them presents itself and you obtain serious injuries, we're here to help you recover the compensation you're owed. So, whenever the time arises, contact us to schedule an appointment.

Can Hiring A Lawyer Affect Your Insurance


Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
