What is Personal Injury?
An injury lawsuit can be filed for a variety of reasons, all of which can include personal damage but may also include property damage.

These injuries require extensive treatment and rehabilitation, possibly multiple surgeries, and even life-long, at-home care. Personal injuries are usually classified as the following:
If you’ve suffered any of these injuries due to an accident, you may have serious grounds for a lawsuit. You will undoubtedly being undergoing several treatments including constant monitoring, harsh prescriptions, surgeries, and rehabilitation. To document your injuries, take pictures, consult with an experienced physician, and immediately contact our attorney Eric G. Canter for help with your case.
In an injury case, our attorney will be focused upon determining that another person or a corporation is responsible for your injuries because of their negligence. Negligence occurs when a person or corporation operates outside of the typical expectations placed upon a person or company. This can occur if a person is operating a vehicle carelessly or while under the influence, if a product doesn’t perform the way it is supposed to and someone had knowledge of its defect, if your workplace wasn’t kept up to safety standards, or if your medical provider didn’t provide you with an appropriate standard of care.
Our attorney will determine how a person or company should have behaved in your specific situation, compare it to how they truly behaved, and establish how their negligence caused your injuries.
According to a recent study by Florida Health, Injuries are the leading cause of death among Florida residents ages 1–44 and the fourth leading cause of death overall, after heart disease, cancer and natural causes. If a family member or loved one has died due to the negligence of someone else, you may be eligible for a wrongful death claim.
