The Types of Accidents That Lead to Personal Injuries in Bayonet Point
A personal injury lawyer must know how to prove who was at fault, find all potential defendants, and understand the implications of your injuries to determine what compensation is fair. If you suffered injuries, it is important to work with an accident lawyer who has experience handling your particular type of case. Different accidents present different legal issues.
Car accidents are common, especially here in Southern Florida, where our pleasant weather creates a yearlong tourism season. Our large cities have busy roads filled with residents and visitors. The more traffic there is, the more likely it is that you will sustain an injury in an auto accident. A negligent driver can injure any road user. While we usually think of vehicle occupants (drivers and their passengers) as being in the most danger, there are many others on the road who can be hurt, as well. Motorcycle riders, bicyclists, pedestrians, and those riding electric scooters are all in danger on the road.
In most cases, these road users sustain far more serious injuries than drivers or passengers inside a vehicle. Occupants of a vehicle benefit from important safety features that reduce the risk of injury in an accident. The steel frame of a vehicle offers structural protection. Bumpers absorb the force of impact by folding in at designated “crumple zones.”
Airbags and seat belts greatly reduce the severity of injuries suffered in a collision. Individuals who are not inside a vehicle when involved in an auto accident (such as cyclists and pedestrians) do not have any of these critical protections. Because of this, they almost always suffer worse injuries than drivers or passengers.
Truck accidents also have a greater likelihood of causing serious injuries since these large commercial trucks are heavy and generate more force in a collision. Often, a truck’s impact transfers to a smaller vehicle involved in the collision, meaning occupants inside a passenger vehicle are subject to a tremendous amount of force, which, in turn, causes more serious injuries.
Experienced truck accident lawyers understand these issues. They know how to prove the physics of a collision and the extent of all injuries that a victim suffers as a result of a truck accident. Such knowledge allows them to get maximum compensation for truck accident injury victims.
Truck accidents also present unique legal issues. The general rule of law is that employers are vicariously liable for any negligence committed by their employees while on the job, meaning a trucking company can be liable for its driver’s negligence, as well as paying for injuries caused by that driver.
A trucking company can also be directly negligent. Suppose, for example, that the company tried to save money by skipping out on required maintenance for its vehicles. Such negligence could cause an accident. Perhaps the company knowingly hired a driver with a history of accidents and safety violations. This act, too, would be the company’s negligence.
While it might seem like a minor distinction, these legal issues make a big difference in determining who must compensate you for your injuries. An experienced truck accident lawyer will ensure you have access to all the defendants and all the sources of compensation to which you are entitled.
Bus accidents present many of the same logistical issues as truck accidents. The vehicles are larger and can cause more serious injuries. There will also be legal questions about whether the bus company can be held liable for its driver’s negligence. But bus accidents can also present another legal challenge: many buses are either owned or operated by the city (or another municipal entity).
Government entities such as cities can be protected from personal injury lawsuits by rules of “sovereign immunity.” If this rule applies, you cannot sue the city for injuries sustained in an accident involving one of their buses. But sovereign immunity does not always apply. Florida, for example, has waived sovereign immunity by statute. Many cities have done the same.
Work with an experienced bus accident attorney at Nicoletti Accident Injury Lawyers because we will know how to determine whether sovereign immunity applies and what options are left to you if it does. A bus accident lawyer will also be sure to meet all procedural requirements for bringing a lawsuit against the city (such as filing a notice of claim before filing your lawsuit).
Boating accidents are common here in Florida. Our warm waters create the ideal environment for sailing, water skiing, wakeboarding, and many other recreational sports. Like drivers, boat operators have a legal duty of care to their passengers, meaning a negligent boat operator who crashes and causes injuries can be responsible for compensating their accident victims. Such potential liability is why many boat owners carry insurance policies with liability coverage.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Property owners have a legal obligation to maintain their land in a safe condition to prevent foreseeable injuries. So what exactly is required? That depends on the type of landowner. Private homeowners, for example, need only warn their guests about known dangers. Retail owners, however, must actively and routinely inspect their property and make it safe for customers. They owe such a duty of care because the owners invite the public onto their land for the financial benefit of the property owner.
Slip and fall accidents are more common than you might think. For example, grocery stores have common problems in the produce department, where spilled fruits and vegetables can create a slipping hazard if not promptly cleaned. Parking lots are another common site of slip and fall accidents, especially if they have poor lighting or there is inclement weather.
Unfortunately, not all accident victims survive their injuries. When a personal injury results in death, surviving family members have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit under the Florida Wrongful Death Act. It is important to do so. Defendants must be accountable for their negligence, especially when it is serious enough to cause another person’s death.
Wrongful death claims can seek compensation for many different types of losses. Tangible expenses, such as funeral and burial costs, are common in these types of actions, as are claims for a victim’s lost wages. Claiming lost wages usually requires expert witness testimony to establish how much the victim would have earned between their death and expected retirement (including bonuses, inflation, and employment benefits).
Finally, a surviving spouse can also claim “loss of consortium,” a legal term that refers to the loss of the intangible aspects of a marital relationship, including companionship, care, and sexual relations. These intangible losses are often the largest component of a settlement or jury award in a wrongful death case.
The Types of Injuries You Might Suffer
For many injury victims, the most important question is how much your injuries are worth. The worth of an injury depends on the type of injury suffered, as well as the nature of your recovery. You are entitled to compensation for your medical bills. You are also entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering (and other intangible losses). It is important to hire a personal injury lawyer who has experience handling your particular types of injuries. They must explain these injuries and prove the resulting losses to an insurance claims adjuster (and potentially a jury).
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) have become a major public health risk throughout the country. Here in Florida, thousands of deaths, and far more injuries, occur every year as a result of TBIs. The Florida Department of Health reports that there were nearly four thousand deaths from TBIs across the state in 2013. Nearly twenty thousand people here in Florida were injured as a result of TBIs that year.
TBIs are a serious medical condition. According to the Department of Health, the average hospital stay for a TBI is three days, which is evidence of just how much damage can be done to the brain when subjected to traumatic forces (almost always the result of some type of accident).
Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries are another serious type of injury. Even when they are not fatal, they can subject the victim to a lifetime of medical complications and painful rehabilitation. According to the National Spinal Cord Statistical Injury Center, there are almost eighteen thousand new cases of spinal cord injuries each year across the United States (this does not include cases in which the victim dies at the location of the injury).
Spinal cord injuries present a wide range of complicated compensation issues. Many victims have shortened life expectancies or require full-time, in-home medical care. They could be permanently unable to engage in any type of work. These medical costs, lost wages, and decreased years of life are all subject to compensation in a personal injury lawsuit. It is important to work with a lawyer who knows how to prove the value of these losses.
Soft Tissue Injuries
A catastrophic accident can cause catastrophic injuries (such as damage to the brain or spinal cord). However, more common accidents, like car crashes or slip and fall accidents, usually cause less serious injuries. Soft tissue injuries are common in these accidents. You might experience muscle sprains or strains. Injuries to the tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues can also occur.
These soft tissue injuries usually do not require surgery, inpatient hospital stays, or other expensive medical interventions. Because of this, claims adjusters assign a low value to soft tissue injuries and make settlement offers that do not account for how painful these injuries actually are.
You don’t have to accept a lowball settlement offer just because you have soft tissue injuries. An experienced accident lawyer will know how to prove the fair value of your losses. Remember, the insurance company is not on your side, so you should not assume that their valuation of your claim is accurate.
