There are several types of accidents resulting in damage to person and/or property that fall under Tamarac personal injury law. This law allows for someone who has been harmed due to another’s negligence to seek monetary compensation through legal action. In a typical personal injury case, the party seeking damages, known as the plaintiff, must establish the elements of negligence to be successfully awarded compensation. In a Florida personal injury lawsuit, a plaintiff alleges that an at-fault party, known as the defendant, was negligent and caused the harm. Negligence is when an individual or entity breaches a legal duty that is owed to the victim that is the actual and legal cause of the accident, which results in harm that causes the victim damages.
One example of a personal injury claim is an auto accident. Like the rest of the country, auto accidents are common in Tamarac and throughout the state of Florida. Beyond the state’s no-fault auto insurance law, which requires the insurance company for each party to pay its own policy holder’s damages regardless of fault, Florida law allows personal injury victims to pursue damages against an at-fault driver and any other potential defendants in court.
Another example of a personal injury lawsuit is an incident involving products liability. When goods that are put into the stream of commerce are defective, the manufacturer, retailer, or wholesaler can be held liable for damages suffered. Under Florida statutes, defective products result in strict liability for the defendant, meaning negligence is presumed once a plaintiff establishes that harm was suffered.
Medical malpractice is yet another type of personal injury claim. When a healthcare provider’s services fall below the required standard of care for the geographic area and the practice, a medical malpractice claim is likely. Florida law provides negligent medical providers liable for any resulting injury they may cause. However, due to the complexity of rules which govern Florida medical malpractice cases, it is imperative to only hire an experienced attorney, such as Joseph Lipsky.
Accidents also happen on property, whether it is privately or publicly owned. As a general rule, property owners (and renters) owe a duty of reasonable care to keep their land safe. This includes eliminating dangerous conditions and performing reasonable repairs to the property. Failure to do so results in liability to the injured party.Legal Help in Tamarac
