Reasons For Retaining A Personal Injury Lawyer In Florida

The chances are pretty good that if you're reading this, you might be wondering if you have the grounds to seek compensation from a negligent party for your injuries. Well, if you can prove that negligence did, in fact, occur, a payday could be headed your way. Of course, restitution amounts vary from one situation to the next, but factors that usually determine their worths include:

• Current and future lost wages
• Medical bills and related expenses
• Pain and physical suffering
• Mental/emotional damages
• Disability and disfigurement

If you believe someone else's negligence is to blame for these or other issues, you might be entitled to fair compensation. Contact an attorney for injury at Goldman Babboni Fernandez & Walsh if you'd like to learn more. We offer free case evaluations because the injured have enough on their plates. Plus, our personal injury clients only owe fees when compensation is recovered. Now, let's look at some examples of negligence. Hopefully, they'll help you better understand when you should reach out to us.

A Crash With A Distracted Driver

According to the NHTSA, 3,142 people were killed on U.S. roadways in accidents involving distracted driving in 2019. Many things can cause distractions, including but not limited to pets, cell phones, audio systems, and passengers. Therefore, if you're struck in the rear by, let's say, a texting driver, you could have a personal injury claim. Get in touch with our firm to find out for sure.

A Trip On An Uneven Sidewalk

Okay, in this situation, you head to a store, where you trip on an uneven sidewalk on your way inside the building. Although that might not sound like too big a deal, this time, you happened to fall just right and hit your head on the pavement. In turn, you are left with a traumatic brain injury that will affect you for the rest of your life. If it can be proven that the business owner knew about the problem but failed to address it or warn visitors of its presence, you may have the grounds to seek compensation. Once again, call our office to speak with an attorney for injury and see.

A Drunk Driver Strikes A Bicyclist

Drinking and driving definitely don't mix. Yet, that doesn't deter some people from combining the activities. When a person is intoxicated behind the wheel, any number of things could happen to make them strike a bicyclist. For instance, the driver may doze off and swerve into a rider. Then again, it is not uncommon for drunk drivers to speed. As such, a drunk motorist might simply be driving too fast, which is why they hit a bicyclist. The list can go on and on. But if you were seriously injured in a crash caused by a drunk driver, that's another reason to contact a personal injury lawyer.

These are only some scenarios that can lead to personal injury claims, but there are also many others. So, if someone's negligence is responsible for your injuries, don't hesitate to contact Goldman Babboni Fernandez & Walsh. The team is ready to help you pursue your legal avenues.

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.
