Florida Injury Attorney
Having an injury lawyer helping you with your accident case can bring peace of mind and relieve some of the burden that going through the legal process can place on families and accident victims.
The primary area of focus for our Florida Injury Lawyer team lies in the realm of accident injury cases and personal injury cases. Accidents that cause life-altering injury can strike anyone at any time, and can devastate people with emotional as well as financial stress. Even cases in which an accident might seem minor can lead to serious injury that will impact a person for the remainder of their life. A victim may be forced out of work leaving them with no financial recourse to provide for their family or deal with the medical expenses that come from treating their injury.
Our Florida Injury Lawyer team knows that many accidents involve some element of negligence. This negligence can be in the form of a driver who chooses to ignore safe driving techniques or from a doctor who fails to treat a patient with proper procedure. Accident victims may have to endure years of physical therapy to help them heal from their injury, and some may never fully recover. Our Florida Injury Lawyer team understands the burden these tragic accidents can place on people, which is why they strive to help victims recover fair compensation allowed by law.
As mentioned, our Florida Injury Lawyer team handles a multitude of accident cases, including:
Florida workers compensation claim – We often associate workplace accidents with labor jobs, like a construction accident or a warehouse accident, but the fact is that a work-related accident can happen in any job environment. You may find yourself involved in a slip and fall accident at the office that causes you to sustain a serious injury. Keep in mind that workers compensation laws are in place to protect workers in the event of an injury on the job. Our Florida Injury Lawyer team can review your case to determine if your employer is liable for your injury and assist you with any legal matters.
Florida slip and fall – A slip and fall accident, too many people, seems like a harmless event, when in fact it can often lead to a serious injury such as a back injury, skull injury or spinal injury. Property owners are obligated to do their best to ensure the safety of people on their properties, and when they’re negligent, you may be able to file a personal injury claim against them in the event of a slip and fall injury.
Florida car accident – Cars are an important part of our daily lives, and because there are so many on the road today, it means that there are more car accident cases each year. Our Florida Injury Lawyer team’s experience with these cases shows that most car accident cases are caused by another negligent driver. If you’ve been injured in a car accident caused by negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your injury.
Florida motorcycle accident – There has been a proliferation of motorcycles on our roads over the last decade, mainly because they’re so much fun to ride. However, because more motorcycles are on the roads, more motorcyclists are getting injured in accidents – sometimes fatally. Because a motorcycle rider and their passengers don’t have sufficient protection, they’re far more susceptible to serious injury than other motorists.
Florida truck accident – Truck accident cases can be particularly tragic because trucks are so big and heavy compared to passenger vehicles. When trucks collide with cars, it’s usually the passengers in the smaller vehicles who get the worst of it. If you’ve suffered a traumatic injury in a truck accident or if you’ve lost a loved one in a wrongful death in a truck accident, you may be able to collect compensation from the truck company and/or their insurance company. Our Florida Injury lawyer team will investigate the circumstances regarding your accident case to determine liability, and will aggressively defend your legal rights throughout the process.
Florida medical malpractice – Medical malpractice simply means that a doctor, nurse, surgeon, OB-GYN, dentist, pharmacist or other medical professional made an error that led to a patient getting hurt or suffering a wrongful death. Doctors who fail to properly treat their patients may be liable in a medical malpractice case. Our Florida Injury Lawyer team will be able to look at the facts regarding your case and make you aware of your legal options.
In addition to these serious personal injury situations, our Florida Injury Lawyer team is also capable in handling:
Florida birth injury case – Children oftentimes suffer minor bruising and fractures during the birth process, and these minor injuries usually heal without further medical intervention. However, some birth injuries are severe and cause the child to suffer some type of debilitating injury that may last for life. Injuries such as cerebral palsy, Klumpke’s palsy and nerve damage can leave a child with permanent impairment. According to our Florida birth injury lawyer, most birth injury incidents are caused by negligent medical practice. If your child suffered a serious birth injury, you may be able to file a medical malpractice claim against the physicians who worked on your childbirth.
Florida brain injury case – A brain injury usually happens when a person’s head is struck with sudden and forceful impact. It’s common for a brain injury to happen in a car accident, motorcycle accident, truck accident, SUV accident or ATV accident. Severe brain injury can leave a victim with lifetime impairment, and victims may be entitled to recover damages to help pay for their medical expenses.
Florida wrongful death case – Wrongful death is generally defined as a death that happens unexpectedly due to an accident or act of violence. Because these incidents are sudden, families are often ill-prepared to deal with the aftermath of a wrongful death. Our Florida Injury Lawyer team understands how emotional and devastating a wrongful death can be, which is why we strive to ease the burden of the surviving family members and help them recover fair compensation for their loss.
Regardless the type of accident that resulted in your personal injury, whether it’s a boat accident, dog bite, boat accident, defective product claim, train accident, SUV accident or ATV accident, our Florida Injury Lawyer team at Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC can help you through the legal process while ensuring that your legal rights are protected.
