Personal injury lawsuits involve any form of harm caused by intention or negligence. In South Florida, there are several types of personal injury claims we often see at our Boca Raton law firm. Auto accidents continue to be one of the top personal injury cases lawyers represent across the nation, but these types are also common:
- Motorcycle Accidents: Because Florida is home to warm, sunny weather year-round, we have a few more motorcyclists on the roads than other states, meaning the more bikers on the road, the higher the chance of a severe, life-threatening motorcycle accident.
- Elder Abuse and Neglect: Florida is also the destination for many aging men and women who want to enjoy their retirement and final years near the beach. Unfortunately, some of these retired adults eventually need in-home care or admission to a nursing home facility. Elder abuse and neglect occurs more often than you may realize and can result in infections, unexplained injuries and in some cases, death.
- Medical Malpractice: Many states, including Florida, have a high number of medical malpractice lawsuits. Physicians, surgeons and nurses can’t be expected to know everything about every disease, but the accepted standard of care is often missing in Florida hospitals, leaving individuals with irreversible or fatal injuries.
These are just a few of the personal injury lawsuits our attorney in Boca Raton handles. Others include product liability, slip and fall accidents and worker’s compensation.
