Types of Personal Injury Claims in Florida | Boca RatonPersonal injury lawsuits are filed for countless reasons, but they share commonalities. For any personal injury claim, you must prove your injuries were caused by the negligence of another individual, company or manufacturer. Our lawyer has recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for our injured clients in the South Florida area. 

Some of the most common types of cases we see include:

  • Auto Accidents: Distracted driving is a growing concern among drivers and pedestrians. Using your phone, messing with your navigation system or just daydreaming could end in severe injuries or death for you and others on the road. Drunk driving is often the cause of auto accidents as well.
  • Boat Accidents: In Florida, boat accidents are a common occurrence and can cause injuries that range from minor to fatal. Boat accidents come with an added danger as they can occur due to crowded waters, lack of lifejackets, inexperienced boat drivers and may end in drownings.
  • Medical Malpractice: Medical error is the third leading cause of death in the United States, which puts it just behind heart disease and cancer. Medical malpractice lawsuits can be filed for delayed diagnosis, misdiagnosis, surgical error, birth injury and many more.
  • Slip and Fall Accidents: These accidents can happen on someone’s property, at a local business, on public grounds and so on. Slip and fall claims typically deal with the negligence of the property owner or municipality because of hazardous conditions that led to injury or death, which should have been reasonably corrected in a timely fashion.
