Who are Personal Injury Attorneys?

Personal injury attorneys are legal professionals who specialize in providing representation to individuals who have suffered physical, emotional, or financial harm due to the negligence of another person, entity, or organization.

These attorneys provide their clients with advice on how best to seek compensation for their injuries and damages, such as lost wages and medical bills. They also help prepare court documents and represent their clients in court if necessary.

Personal injury attorneys possess a vast knowledge of tort law which governs most civil wrongs and harms that occur from negligence. They must be able to understand the nuances between intentional torts, negligence per see, and ordinary negligence as it applies to various cases.

These attorneys also understand various state statutes and regulations which could impact the outcome of a case. Moreover, personal injury lawyers are highly skilled negotiators and mediators, so they can effectively settle disputes out of court.

In some cases, personal injury attorneys may take on cases where criminal charges may be involved due to allegations of reckless behavior or intoxication resulting in an accident or injury.

In these cases, they will work closely with criminal defense attorneys in order to ensure their client’s rights are not violated throughout the process. They may assist with filing motions related to evidence gathering as well as representing their client during any necessary legal proceedings.

What are Common Injuries Personal Injury Attorneys Deal With?

The attorneys at The Injury Firm in Fort Lauderdale handle a variety of personal injury cases. Common types of injuries they deal with include:

1. Slip and Fall Injuries

Slip and fall injuries are among the most common types of injuries that personal injury attorneys deal with. They occur when a person slips, trips, or falls due to a dangerous condition on another’s property or from a failure to warn of potential hazards.

Common slip and fall injuries include fractures, sprains, contusions, muscle strains, ligament tears, head trauma, spinal cord damage, and broken bones. In some cases, a slip-and-fall accident can lead to long-term pain and disability.

2. Car Accident Injuries

Car accident injuries are another type of injury that personal injury attorneys handle on a frequent basis. These accidents may involve two cars colliding with each other in an intersection or one car slamming into objects such as parked vehicles, guardrails, or trees.

Common car accident injuries include whiplash, broken bones, head trauma (concussion), lacerations, and internal organ damage.

3. Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is another area that personal injury attorneys handle regularly. It occurs when healthcare providers fail to provide appropriate medical care when treating patients, which results in harm or death to the patient.

Typical medical malpractice cases involve surgical errors, misdiagnosis, or delayed diagnosis of an illness which leads to additional complications for the patient

4. Bicycle Accidents

Personal injury lawyers also represent clients who have been injured in bicycle accidents due to someone else’s negligence or recklessness.

These accidents often involve serious physical trauma such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), paralysis, and amputation caused by the impact of the crash or falling off the bike at high speeds onto hard pavement surfaces.

5. Dog Bite Injuries

Dog bite injuries happen when someone is bitten by a dog whose owner is negligent in controlling it. Dog bites can cause severe wounds, especially if they occur on tender areas such as around the eyes or neck.

Victims may suffer nerve damage, infection, scarring, psychological trauma, disfigurement, loss of mobility, and even death if left untreated.

6. Product Liability Injury

Product liability is another form of personal injury handled by many attorneys involving defective products like toys, furniture items, etc., which can potentially cause harm if used correctly but still prove faulty due to poor manufacturing processes.

Some common product liability injuries include burns from malfunctioning electrical appliances, choking hazards posed by small toys with parts that can be ingested easily, and suffocation due to malfunctioning baby mattresses, etc.

7. Construction Site Injury

8. Pharmaceutical Drug Injury

Examples of pharmaceutical drug-related problems include cancer caused by defective hormone replacement therapy drugs like Premarin®; heart attack resulting from taking Chantix® for smoking cessation; kidney failure caused by taking Actos® for diabetes; stroke caused by taking Avandia® for diabetes; suicidal thoughts induced by taking Prozac®, Paxil®, Zoloft®, Celexa® or Lexapro®, etc.

9. Nursing Home Abuse Injuries

Nursing home abuse is yet another situation where victims seek help from personal injury lawyers because they don't receive proper care while staying at these facilities designed specifically for elderly individuals who require extra attention given their age-related health issues.

Types of nursing home abuse usually involve physical assault; battery including sexual abuse; neglect; abandonment resulting in bedsores; malnutrition; financial exploitation resulting in unauthorized withdrawals from victim’s bank accounts; emotional abuse including verbal abuse; humiliation; improper medication administration leading to serious side effects, etc.

10. Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

While mild TBIs may heal over time with rest, therapies depending upon the severity in some cases, result in life-altering disabilities leaving victims completely dependent upon others, even basic daily functions like getting dressed, eating, etc.

How Can Personal Injury Attorneys Help?

Personal injury attorneys can help in a variety of ways, depending on the specific circumstances of your case. Here is a step-by-step process to enlist their assistance:

  • Consult with an attorney. You should seek out an experienced personal injury attorney who is familiar with the laws that govern personal injury cases. Your attorney can provide counsel regarding your rights and remedies available to you under the law. They will be able to explain how your case could potentially proceed and provide insight on how to maximize any potential recovery from the liable party or parties.
  • Evaluation of your claim. After consulting with you, your Attorney will review all relevant facts and documents related to your case, including medical records, police reports, insurance policies, photographs, witness statements, etc., in order to gain a full understanding of the facts of the case and all applicable legal theories for liability.
  • Understanding who is liable for injuries sustained in an accident or incident: Once they have a comprehensive understanding of who was responsible for causing the injury or damages sustained by you, they will be able to advise whether you have a viable claim against them and what type of legal action may be necessary to pursue such a claim and obtain compensation for losses incurred by you due to their negligence or reckless behavior.
  • Negotiating with insurance companies: Many times, these types of cases are settled prior to going to court through negotiations between your attorney and whoever may be financially responsible for the damages caused by them (usually, it’s an insurance company). Your lawyer will work hard on your behalf, negotiating with insurance companies in order to reach an agreement that meets all parties' needs without having to take matters before a courtroom judge or jury trial.
  • Representing You in Court: If negotiations fail and litigation becomes necessary, then your lawyer will file suit against whoever is responsible for causing the harm sustained by you, seeking both compensatory (economic) as well as non-compensatory (pain; suffering) damages for which monetary awards could be had under applicable law(s).

Remember that every personal injury case is different. This means that it is very important to talk to a lawyer who knows what they are doing. They will help you understand what risks are involved in your case and how to get the best possible outcome.
