Specialized Fort Myers Personal Injury Attorneys

What is Personal Injury?
Personal Injury law, also known as tort law, involves any variety of injuries or harm towards an individual’s body, emotions, or reputation. There are three grounds on which personal injury claims can be brought: Negligence, the most common basis for personal injury claims, Strict Liability, and Intentional Wrongs. Examples of Personal Injury claims are the following:

Automobile Accidents
Car crashes can result in serious and life-altering injuries, or even death. If you or someone you care about has been involved in a vehicle crash resulting in injury or death due to the negligence of another person, you may be eligible for financial compensation for hospital bills, time out of work, or general pain and suffering. In the state of Florida “No-Fault” Motor Vehicle Laws were designed to provide insurance benefits to automobile accident victims regardless of fault. In addition, the law requires each driver to carry a minimum amount of automobile insurance.

Boating Accidents
Boating is a way of life in Southwest Florida. Unfortunately accidents can happen on the water and can include personal watercraft collisions by boat, jet ski or other vessels as well as falls, watercraft capsizing, or drowning. As a result, injuries or disabilities can lead to medical bills, property damage, lost wages or pain and suffering.

Brain Injuries
Brain injuries can be devastating for victims and families, leading to lost wages, permanent injuries and even death. Whether the result of a medical condition, accident or other cause, brain injuries can compromise a person’s quality of life. Often times, rehabilitation and long-term care is required.

Medical Device Failure
Medical equipment failure is a form of medical malpractice, often the result of manufacturing defects or human error. If you or a loved one has suffered injury or death as a result of equipment or device failure, you may be eligible for compensation related to medical bills, lost income or pain and suffering.

Motorcycle Accidents
In the state of Florida, there are a number of laws, insurance requirements and regulations that are specific to motorcyclists. Injuries and deaths related to motorcycle accidents can be costly and complex. If you or your loved one are involved in an accident involving a motorcycle, you may be eligible for compensation due to medical costs, property damages or wages.

Mass Torts
A mass tort is a civil wrong that results in injury to many victims, therefore involving numerous plaintiffs suing one defendant (or several defendants) for negligence. Most mass tort cases involve various individual plaintiffs suing for harm caused by a single product such as a consumer product claim.

Product Liability
Product liability is the area of law in which manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, retailers, and others who make products available to the public are held responsible for the injuries those products cause.

Premises Liability
If you are injured on someone else’s property, the landowner may be liable for your injuries. This can include injuries caused by hazardous conditions such as uneven pavement, standing water, wet floors, falling objects, inadequate security, insufficient lighting, concealed holes, improperly secured mats, or other property defects.

Workplace Injuries
With or without workers’ compensation, persons injured on the job or in the workplace may be eligible for compensation for injuries. Workplace accidents can result from automobile accidents, slip and fall injuries, back injuries and a number of other injuries.

Wrongful Death
Wrongful death is a claim in common law jurisdictions against a person who can be held liable for a death. The claim is brought in a civil action, often by relatives.
