Florida Personal Injury Accident Attorneys

Every day, we go about our business and expect to come home, enjoy time with friends and family, relax while watching some TV, or perhaps head out to play some sport. The point is, the last thing we expect to happen is to get involved in an accident whether this is traffic-related or otherwise. However, it’s something that does happen and we’ve seen proof of how frequently it happens in the Fort Lauderdale area alone.

If ever you get into an accident and you need a personal injury attorney, The Injury Firm is here for you. As you’re going to see below, we cover a range of accident types and our experience ensures you’ll have the best chance of obtaining the level of compensation you deserve. From motorcycles to airplanes, we cover everything.

If you’ve already been involved in an accident or perhaps you’re reading this on behalf of a loved one, you need to know whether we can help. If we can, you then need to know how we can help so we have all the details listed on this page.

Airplane Accident Attorney

First up, you may not know that the airplane is actually the safest mode of transport available. If we were to compare deaths per one billion, flying causes around 0.07 which is just behind the bus at 0.11 and some way behind the car at 7.28. What’s the most dangerous mode of transport? It’s actually the motorcycle and it’s currently above all the others put together at 212.57 deaths per one billion.

Therefore, deaths are certainly rare with airplane journeys but it still isn't impossible which is why we offer our services for victims and their loved ones. Ultimately, injuries can come in the form of faulty equipment (such as a chair), a blocked walkway, an accident with luggage falling from the overhead container, or even a faulty takeoff or landing. When the words ‘airplane accident’ are mentioned, people automatically think of a disastrous crash falling from thousands of feet but the term actually pertains to any injury while under the responsibility of the aircraft.

Based in Fort Lauderdale, we have experience in taking on the huge airlines as well as airports in order to obtain the deserved compensation. With deep resources and an unparalleled skill set in our superb team, we’ll represent you and ensure you get a fair voice when it’s needed most.

Bicycle Accident Attorney

In recent years, the roads have been made much safer with the introduction of specialized cycle lanes as well as improved accessibility to information for all road users. Today, we live in a time where drivers of cars and trucks are more informed than ever before and this has led to a decrease in the overall amount of incidents. Sadly, the incidents that occur for cyclists are somewhat more severe than most other incidents because it’s often man/woman against vehicle.

As a society, we are more environmentally-conscious these days which has led to more cyclists on the road (this has also contributed to the improved accessibility of information). Whether it comes down to tired, aggressive, drunk, or even just careless road users, accidents are common on the roads of Florida. If you’ve been involved in an incident, you need a service with experience and the passion to put you first and earn compensation.

Boating Accident Attorney

While boating is a fun activity to enjoy in our free time, it will always come with certain risks. As soon as you enter the open waters, there are several hazards that can pose an issue. Of course, we would never want you to be so nervous that you’re riding around thinking an accident can happen any minute but awareness is important.

With boating, there are many different accidents that can occur including a collision with other watercraft, capsizing and getting stuck underneath the boat in the water, grounding, colliding with navigation aids and fixed objects, flooding, and even faulty equipment. Depending on the incident, there will be liability somewhere whether it comes from another rider, the boat manufacturer, or an instructor. With a boating accident attorney, you can look after your best interests and ensure a boating incident doesn’t ruin your finances when you’re forced to take time from work.

Bus Accident Attorney

As we saw earlier, a bus journey is the second safest from all the modes of transport because even crashes on the road aren't likely to injure passengers unless it’s really severe. As they travel through towns and cities going from stop to stop, many of them don’t spend much of their routes going the speed limit. However, this area of our service includes all incidents involving a bus.

Sometimes, the bus might have skipped maintenance and this led to a pileup on the road. Elsewhere, a sudden stop from the driver might have pushed you, as a passenger, into a protruding piece of material that shouldn't have been there. Finally, the manufacturer may have allowed a faulty unit to leave the factory so injuries can occur in a number of ways.

Let’s not forget, buses aren't legally obliged to provide the same safety features you might find in other modes of transport including seat belts, helmets, and airbags. Also, buses are more vulnerable to tipping after an accident or due to severe weather so these need to be considered. If you’re involved in any bus-related incident, there’s endless paperwork and the whole process can get rather tricky so having a professional by your side might just allow you to obtain the right compensation.

Car Accident Attorney

Of all the services we offer, this is perhaps the most popular since cars are the mode of transport with the second-highest amount of incidents in Florida. Compared to buses, bikes, and boats, cars are significantly more common and this leads to a large number of accidents. From one moment to the next, your day can be completely changed as you’re hit from behind or perhaps tagged from behind on the highway.

Depending on the extent of the issue, you could experience traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, whiplash, back injuries, soft tissue injuries, or broken bones. Soon after you’ve swapped details, the life insurance company of the guilty party will contact you and ask for a statement. Unfortunately, thousands fall into this trap every year but we can provide small tips like this you’re going to need for a strong case. Since they’ll use the statement to play your injuries down, it can be used during the case and can limit the compensation you receive (if any at all!).

After getting in contact with The Injury Firm, we’ll spend time gathering evidence and proving the guilty party was liable for the incident whether they were over the drug or alcohol limit, over-tired, not paying attention to the road, driving recklessly, or maybe they just made a simple mistake. By enlisting the help of eyewitnesses as well as compiling police and hospital reports, we can prove you’re owed compensation for lost income, medical bills, pain and suffering, and more.

Construction Zone Accident Attorney

Sometimes, the need for an auto accident attorney occurs without there being a second vehicle involved. With construction zones on the road, they’re generally a positive sign because they mean the area is improving. However, they also cause confusion with lane changes, barrels, detours, and other problems.

During the construction, tools and equipment can be left too close to the road and this can cause damage to both an oncoming car and its driver. After this, incidents with other cars can be caused by incorrectly installed road signs, poorly placed road signs, unclear lane markings, barriers, poor conditions on the road, and sometimes a mistake in traffic control.

Whenever an accident occurs in a construction zone, somebody needs to take responsibility but sometimes this can be difficult. Without the experience and knowledge of a personal injury attorney, it can be almost impossible. With all road construction projects, there are many different parties involved from the manufacturer of the equipment to the independent contractor. With our help, you can launch an investigation and get to the bottom of it all so you can be compensated for medical bills and lost income.

Motorcycle Accident Attorneys

When it comes to motorcycles, the professionals at The Injury Firm have vast experience in compiling cases and working towards compensation whether this comes from a settlement outside of court or a court case itself. While other attorneys won’t have the manpower and resources to take the case to court, we can and insurance companies are fully aware of our positive reputation.

Most commonly, accidents come from a lack of awareness from other drivers on the road, road users taking a risk and pulling out when they really don’t have time, not leaving enough space on the road, or changing lanes without looking in the blind-spot over their shoulder. Since motorbikes can sometimes be missed with a quick glance, drivers go ahead and change lanes and this leaves you between a vehicle and the central median.

Unfortunately, motorcycle riders come off worse in the majority of incidents with other road users and these injuries are made worse when the proper protective equipment isn't worn. In some cases we’ve seen in the past, there were no other road users to blame but instead the manufacturer of the motorcycle. Even if it’s something as small as a loose nut on the bike somewhere, this falls into the lap of the manufacturer if it left the factory this way. Although rare, the accident could also lead to a product recall if numerous incidents occur with the same model.

Whatever causes the incident, we’re here and ready to use our experience to personalize our service to your needs. Rather than coming in with a one-size-fits-all approach, we’ll adapt wherever necessary and this will allow us to yield a positive result.

Pedestrian Accident Attorney

Even if you’re in no vehicle at all, there’s still a risk of being caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. In Florida, we enjoy a lot of sunny weather and this leads to afternoon strolls, jogging, and just enjoying the day in the area. Furthermore, we have parents and children walking to and from school and sometimes an accident can occur when you least expect it.

In recent times, there seems to have been a spate of pedestrian accidents whether this comes through an altercation with a truck, bus, car, bicycle, or motorcycle. In 2013, nearly 15% of all road deaths in the US involved a pedestrian so it’s not exactly a rare occurrence. When it comes to the law regarding pedestrians, it can get a little confusing. Depending on how the events unfold, both pedestrians and drivers can receive the brunt of the blame.

Every time a driver steps into their car, they have a duty of care to all pedestrians they pass. With this being said, pedestrians can also violate laws to cause accidents and this is commonly seen at crossings and junctions. If you’ve recently been injured as a pedestrian, even if it was a collision with a bicycle and you’ve been badly injured as a result, compensation should be attainable if you get in contact with us in Fort Lauderdale.

Public Transit Accident Attorney

For all residents of Florida who don’t have a car or those who just want a quick way to get about town without having to worry about parking, public transit is a fantastic solution and will remain this way for years to come. Known as ‘common carriers’, this covers all modes of transport that carry people from one location to another for a fee. With this in mind, it mainly deals with trains, trams, and buses.

With millions of people riding the public transit system each and every year, they need to be maintained to a certain standard and they also need to undergo checks before starting a day’s work. For example, buses will have their tires, fluids, and engines checked while also having a cleaning and inspection every four weeks or so.

In terms of responsibility, operators and owners are required to get all passengers to their stop safely while providing safety exits, handrails, and other protective steps such as seat belts (for some). If you’ve been injured and need a public transit accident attorney, we’re here for you. After initially getting in contact, we’ll let you know whether you have a case or not. From here, we can take you forward and create a position that’s likely to yield success.

Taxi Accident Attorney

Although taxis are seen as a safe haven where the vehicle takes us where we need to go, we mustn't forget the drivers are human like all of us. Until we get autonomous vehicles, which is still some way off, we rely on the alertness, skill, and experience of drivers. As it just so happens, we have one of the busiest cities in the world for taxis due to many tourists as well as the locals getting about town. If the weather takes a turn for the worse or perhaps you’re tired and can’t face the bus ride home, it’s easy enough to grab a quick taxi.

For most people, they don’t think about taxis being in an accident until it happens. Until then, we see them as a professional service and the best drivers around. As we all know from our own experience driving, it’s often the other road users that cause issues so taxis are just as vulnerable as anybody else. If the driver is overworked or for whatever reason tired, this can be another problem.

Nowadays, we work on taxi incidents regularly so know how they work, how to investigate and find where the blame lies, and how to put you in a strong position to succeed with a potential case. With the law today, taxi companies are exempt from choosing ‘no-fault’ insurance which means they have drivers employed as independent contractors. Regardless of the way these companies operate, you definitely aren't to blame (assuming you were just minding your own business in the back of the taxi!).

Train Accident Attorney

As we saw with the public transit section earlier, a train is considered a common carrier because we pay to be transported from one point to another. In terms of accidents, they’re rare but can include mechanical issues, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, driver fatigue, inexperience of the driver, collision, derailment, and excessive speeding on the lines.

Generally speaking, maintenance issues are the main reason for injuries on trains but we also see human error and defective products too. When you partner with us, we’ll find out who was to blame; this is likely to be the operator or owner. If there’s defective equipment on the train, the manufacturer can also be blamed for injury or death so please get in contact if you or a family member has been involved in a train incident recently.

Finally, we should also mention railroad crossing accidents since these can also occur. When we start working on your case, we’ll be dedicated to finding the cause of the accident because there are parties responsible for the maintenance of lights, signals, and most other processes.

Truck Accident Attorney

Although cars and motorcycle incidents occur every day on the roads of Florida and this makes them the most common issue, there’s a matter of extent with road collisions and those involving trucks can be fatal. In a collision between two cars, they’re likely to rebound and give as good as they get because of the similar size and build. When a truck is involved, the severity of the situation increases somewhat because a car or bike doesn’t stand a chance.

Despite the size difference between the two vehicles, the process of assessing a collision is always the same; who’s at fault? If you were obeying the rules of the road and the truck was in the wrong, you should be entitled to compensation for any injuries you may have sustained. If you were driving a truck and another vehicle was in the wrong, the same rules apply.

If you were thinking of taking on the case yourself, the next step is where you come across the problem because you’ll be going up against any number of people from the truck driver to the truck company, truck manufacturer to the leasing company owner (and maybe even the trailer manufacturer). While everybody on the other side blames one another, all you need is compensation and, as personal injury attorneys, we know how to achieve this for you.

Uber/Lyft Accident Attorney

In recent years, Uber and Lyft have been two mobile apps that have taken the US by storm. As users, we can order a taxi-like service and benefit from cheaper fares due to the lack of requirements for the drivers. Compared to taxis, they don’t have quite the same restrictions. As customers, this is a great service; as attorneys, it can be a nightmare because the laws are still developing and the requirements for drivers are always changing.

Luckily, we always keep up-to-date with industry news and we’ve been following Uber and Lyft very closely. If you’ve been involved in an accident while in an Uber or Lyft car, the blame could go various ways so be sure to get in touch today. Not only could it be the other driver involved in the incident, it could be your driver, the company, or the manufacturer of the car if it came down to a faulty vehicle. For the past few years, we’ve invested our time heavily on knowing the rules and regulations so we can help you with a potential case.
