Motorcycle Accidents

A motorcyclist's body often takes the brunt of the force during a vehicle accident. Injuries from motorcycle accidents are often devastating.  Motorcycle accidents occur for many reasons. Some happen from having a lack of road space, while others are due to drivers failing to acknowledge them. A motorcyclist may become pinned underneath their motorcycle or between other vehicles. Accidents can throw them from their bikes, causing severe injuries, even death.

If you have been in a motorcycle accident, contact an Orlando accident lawyer. You need to discuss and learn about your legal options. 

Motorcycle accident lawyers work to get you the financial help you need and deserve.

Trucking Accidents

Like other motor vehicle accidents, there are common causes of trucking accidents. 

These include:

  • Driver fatigue
  • Distracted driving (Texting, or searching Facebook and Google)
  • Excessive speed
  • Vehicle malfunction
  • Drug or alcohol-related impairment
  • Illegal maneuvers
  • Reckless driving
  • Unfamiliarity with the route

Trucks also carry large and heavy loads that may contribute to accidents. If you have an overload of items that shift or dislodge, you can cause an accident to happen.

If you are a truck driver who suffers from injuries due to being in a truck accident, call an attorney.

Brain Injury

Having a brain injury can result from being in an accident at work or while driving on the roads. Injuries can come from pedestrian accidents, tractor-trailer collisions, product liability, and home abuse. Once a brain injury happens, recovery can take two years. Many need some amount of help from another person during this difficult time. If your personal injury case goes to court, you will need a trial lawyer to fight your case.

Nursing Home

A nursing home with an injured patient can be held legally responsible. When an act of negligence, premise liability (like a slip & fall), neglect, or abuse causes injury. If you or a loved one has been a personal injury victim, contact your attorney. They need to file a medical malpractice lawsuit to receive compensation. If your injuries come from working in a nursing home while conducting job duties, you may have a case. If your injuries result from workplace negligence, contact a board-certified lawyer. 

Depending on the circumstances, you may be eligible for worker's compensation.

Florida Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Florida wrongful death attorneys represent immediate family survivors. They work with families of those killed through the negligence of another. Qualified lawyers handle many severe injuries and wrongful death insurance claims. They are also well-equipped to manage wrongful death lawsuits. 

If you are unsure what qualifies as a wrongful death lawsuit, it is best to consult with a wrongful death lawyer. Wrongful death claims allow the estate and/or close members of the deceased to sue. They can file a lawsuit against the party legally liable for the death.

These types of cases have some unique challenges. Example: Sometimes, there are no witnesses for the person who died. Thus, wrongful death cases need a reconstruction of the accident. Without a witness, lawyers must use other methods of evidence collection.

The state of Florida's wrongful death statute also limits who can sue. It varies depending on the case it is, i.e., an auto accident, medical malpractice, negligent security, or something else.

Florida Medical Malpractice

If you suspect that you, or your loved one, is a victim of medical malpractice, visit your law firm. It is unfortunate that many law firms must reject 99% medical malpractice cases. Florida's legislature passed statutes that are not pro-victims; they are pro-insurance companies instead. 

Thus, Orlando medical malpractice lawyers can only accept the most catastrophic case. The ones that mostly involve permanent injuries or death from medical malpractice cases. If you suspect a medical provider is doing something wrong or illegal, talk to an attorney to find out what to do. 

Medical malpractice can cause permanent injuries and death, do not ignore your instincts. Talk to a medical malpractice attorney. You may have a case where you can recover the maximum compensation to cover your medical bills and more.

Viable medical malpractice cases might include things like paralysis, blindness, and surgical errors. Most Florida law firms will only take on severe cases. Cases of injuries that have left you unable to walk, talk, work, or perform other tasks.

 

To file a personal injury lawsuit, remember to do thorough research. You must find an Orlando personal attorney right for you and your personal injury case.
