Some personal injury claims arise from outdoor slips and falls

Florida property owners, lessees and managers are required to take steps to ensure the safety of those they invite onto their property. If a hazardous condition exists that one of those individuals knows about, or should have known about, it should be repaired or otherwise made safe as efficiently and quickly as possible. One of the most common personal injury claims under these circumstances are slips and falls, but not all of those claims arise out of accidents indoors.

New Year's Eve disaster could lead to personal injury claim

When it comes to New Year's Eve celebrations, many Florida residents consider fireworks and drunk drivers to be the source of the majority of catastrophes that could occur. As such, they take precautions not to allow these things to affect their festivities. However, there were other dangers that night that could eventually lead to the filing of at least one personal injury claim.

Victim's employer faces personal injury suit from firefighter

Most Florida employees are aware that they can apply for workers' compensation benefits when injured on the job. What they may not know is that they may also be able to file a personal injury claim against a third party believed responsible for the injuries that occurred. This is what a firefighter from here in the state has done.

A day at the fair could turn into a personal injury claim

Everyone knows that Walt Disney World, Epcot Center and the other Disney theme parks are here in Florida. However, the Sunshine State also hosts numerous fairs with rides and attractions that people love to visit. The problem is that some of the rides at the fairs could potentially be personal injury claims waiting to happen.

Personal injury claims and Florida's theme parks

Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Busch Gardens, among others, provide hours and days of fun for tourists and Florida residents alike. While thousands of people visit these parks each year without incident, injuries do occur, and some of them can be serious. If you suffered injuries at one of the state's theme parks, you may be able to pursue restitution through the filing of a personal injury claim.

Personal injury topics: Amputation

Some accidents result in such catastrophic injuries that Florida medical personnel may have to take extreme measures in order to save a patient's life. One such action may be to amputate a limb. If the accident was the result of another person's negligence, the victim may be able to seek restitution through a personal injury claim for what could be lifelong issues due to the amputation.

Investigating a personal injury claim after a truck accident

The sights, smells and sounds that accompany an accident involving an 18-wheeler are not something you will soon forget. Nevertheless, sensory memories are more than likely the least of your concerns at the moment. The size and weight of the truck that slammed into your smaller, passenger vehicle may have caused you significant injuries, and you may consider filing a personal injury claim in a Florida civil court.

The victim's responsibilities in a personal injury claim

Rarely does a day go by here in Florida when someone is not injured due to some sort of accident. If an accident was the result of someone else's negligence, the victim may consider filing a personal injury claim to receive compensation for damages such as medical bills and lost wages. However, the victim has certain responsibilities when it comes to such claims.

What does it mean to make a personal injury claim?

After suffering serious injuries in an accident, a Florida resident often incurs a significant amount of medical expenses and other damages. Even with health insurance, medical costs for hospitalization, physical therapy and other medical-related needs can reach into the tens of thousands, if not more. If he or she believes that one or more parties caused or contributed to the injuries, a personal injury claim might be appropriate.

Personal injury claims possible after accident at festival

Many Florida residents enjoy going to the festivals and carnivals that are held in the state each year, and the food, rides and games are attractive to children and adults alike. It can be easy to take for granted that the food is edible, the rides are safe and the games are not rigged. A case of food poisoning or the inability to win at the games might be inconvenient, but more than likely will not be life threatening. However, if one of the rides fails, people can suffer serious injuries or even die. Those who are seriously injured might consider filing personal injury claims, seeking restitution for the damages incurred as a result.
