Automobile accidents are the leading cause of personal injury cases in Jacksonville. More than 50 percent of all automobile accidents are caused by driver neglect. In many of these incidents, someone is ignoring traffic signals and signs, driving intoxicated, or distracted by a prohibited actions. All aforementioned situations constitute a claim of neglect and personal injury. The same rings true for motorcycle accidents. Many motorcycle accidents occur because a vehicle driver was not paying attention to the road.
Many work injuries occur because employees are not following the proper safety procedures. In some cases, the employer fails to update or maintain dangerous machinery. Additionally, some employers do not implement the proper training procedures, and an employee is hurt because of such. Work injuries of this type are personal injuries to the employee.
Medical malpractice is any situation in which a patient’s condition worsens because of a harmful treatment or someone dies (wrongful death) because of a poor medical decision. Both instances would warrant a personal injury case, because medical personnel are supposed to act in ways that protect the patient’s health and welfare. Birth injuries would fall under this bracket. An example of a birth injury is a newborn child receiving brain damage from the improper use of forceps.
Animal bites are considered personal injuries because a pet owner is fully responsible for keeping the pet calm and non-aggressive. If a dog bites an innocent person, chances are high that the owner was neglectful in some way. We can ask for compensation for any illness or injury that arises from the animal bite.
Slips and falls, product liability and assault are our specialties as well. We will fight to the end to have the judge award you a settlement that takes care of all your expenses. Compensatory damages can cover your medical bills, treatment supply costs, repair costs, lost work wages and more. If the guilty party was extremely neglectful, you may be able to receive punitive damages as an added bonus.Contact Jacksonville Personal Injury Lawyers Today
