Types of Personal Injury Accidents

Hollywood personal injury accidents happen when a party negligently or intentionally causes harm to another. While many personal injury incidents cause physical harm, this term also refers to emotional or psychological injury suffered in an accident. When a personal injury lawsuit is brought by a victim, sometimes the issue of liability is clear; other times, fault is not so easy to determine. The person claiming a personal injury, in most cases, has the burden of proving that the defendant was negligent. Negligence is established by showing that the defendant owed a legal duty of care that was breached, and that this breach was the actual and legal cause of the injuries suffered. Florida law allows for economic and noneconomic damages to be sought by an injured victim in a personal injury lawsuit.

There are several types of personal injury accidents that the attorneys at The Law Offices of Joseph Lipsky, P.A. handle. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Trucking accidents;
  • Car accidents;
  • Bicycle accidents;
  • Pedestrian accidents;
  • Medical malpractice;
  • Slip or trip and falls; and
  • Negligent or inadequate security issues;

Most accidents fall under an area of the law known as personal injury, which is a type of “tort.” Tort law refers to the legal rights a victim of an injury has to seek compensation for the negligent or reckless acts or omissions of another that caused the harm. Typically, state law governs these types of cases. The exception is when the accident involves parties from different countries or even states. In these circumstances, federal or even international law may apply. Depending on the type of personal injury accident, other legal theories beyond negligence may apply, such as recklessness, no-fault, or even strict liability. These cases allows for damages, or monetary compensation, for damage caused both to person and property.
