Scenarios That Could Leave You Injured And Hurting For Money In Lakewood Ranch

Most people don't sit around the Sarasota area thinking about getting injured in accidents. However, driving day in and day out on high traffic, dangerous roads like US 301, University Parkway, and Tamiami Trail sometimes, that is exactly what happens to them. And often, a person doesn't even have to do anything wrong for disaster to strike. Then, they are left with serious injuries from no fault of their own. That might not sound like a big deal, but it can be, especially when financial troubles enter the picture. 

Those injured in accidents can be left unable to work. Thus, they don't earn paychecks when that issue occurs.

Therefore, it can be challenging for these individuals to pay bills for rent, lights, etc. Not only that, but it also isn't uncommon for people to gain expenses after accidents. That's because accident victims frequently sustain severe damages in various kinds of mishaps. In fact, let's look at some particular scenarios right now.

A Car Crash

Obviously, auto accidents come in different shapes and sizes. However, this distinct example involves negligence. You are driving along safely, following the rules of the road, when a motorist slams into the rear end of your car at a traffic light.

Unfortunately, as if that wasn't enough, the nudge also pushes your vehicle out and into the intersection, where it strikes another car. It just so happens that the driver who hit you initially was texting and driving. They had sent a message approximately 10 seconds before the contact was initiated.

A Bonk On The Head

This time around, the issue is one of premises liability on a commercial property. You came to a business for assistance with something and parked in the parking garage. Normally, that wouldn't be a bad thing. After all, the company is giving you a safe place to park your vehicle. Sure, you're paying for the parking, but still. You're walking to get to the elevators and turn your head for only a brief moment to watch a car as it passed. 

It just so happens that you walked into a cast iron sewer pipe on the low-lying ceiling at that exact moment.

Had you been staring straight ahead, you might have spotted the danger, but then again, you may not have because there weren't any signs alerting you to the problem. If the business had used signage, this mishap that left you with a concussion and eight stitches after hitting your head on the concrete could have possibly been avoided.

Burns From A Defective Product

Defective products seem to be everywhere these days, and all it would take is for one of them to find its way into your home for a catastrophe to ensue. For instance, you bought a fan, in this case, to help cool you down during the spring and summer. But as you are sleeping with the unit blowing on you one day, sparks fly, catching your drapes on fire. The dilemma became a reality due to a miscalculation during the manufacturing process.

Still, the most important thing is that you woke in time to extinguish the flames before they consumed your entire home. 

So, congratulations are in order in this regard. However, nothing about the situation is great, as you also sustained second and third-degree burns while being an amateur firefighter. If only the product creator hadn't messed up, you wouldn't need skin graphs and other pricey treatments.

Some Final Words

Regardless of what type of accident yours is, if someone else's negligence was behind it and the injuries it left you with, you might be entitled to fair compensation. Hence, if you'd like to learn if you have a legitimate claim for restitution, don't hesitate to contact our Venice law firm.

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.
