Personal Injury is a general area of the law involving situations where someone is hurt or injured. It includes many different types of cases, including, but not limited to serious bodily injury from car accidents, defective products liability as well as slip and fall accidents.
With so many drivers on the roadways, car accidents are certain to happen. According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, in 2020 there were 340,939 car crashes in Florida. In those crashes, 212,278 people suffered injuries, and 3,340 people were killed. Distracted driving is the most common cause of road accidents in the United States. Four other common causes of accident are speeding reckless or careless driving and inclement weather.
Slip and Fall
Responsibility for injuries on another’s property or Premise liability cases can arise out of falls on sidewalks, stairways, and swimming pools, not just on slippery floors. Business invitees are owed a high standard of care by property owners and lessees. Although there is a lower standard of care owed to a trespasser on property, still, a business owner cannot set traps for trespassers, as they are owed a minimal duty of care as well.
