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.

Could your accident result in a personal injury claim?

No matter how hard they might try, Pensacola residents are not always able to shield themselves or their families from becoming the victims of accidents. Anytime they leave their homes, there is a risk that they will suffer serious injuries. The question becomes whether they can file personal injury claims if they believe that someone else is responsible for their current situation.

Personal injury claims encompass more than car accidents

Florida residents are often the victims of numerous types of accidents due to the negligence of another person or persons. People are injured in many ways and under a variety of circumstances other than just in car accidents. In fact, car crashes involve just one area of personal injury law.

The deadly link between talcum powder and ovarian cancer

For more than 100 years, Johnson & Johnson has marketed products containing talc as an essential part of the daily hygiene regimen. Women were encouraged to use the products each morning for a variety of reasons. Marketing messages have included "Just a sprinkle a day helps keep odor away." Recently, however, a devastating link between the mineral talc and ovarian cancer has left women searching for answers.

Multiple fatality motor vehicle accidents can devastate families

Each year, far too many Florida families lose loved ones in crashes on the state's roadways. In some of the motor vehicle accidents that occur, one family could lose multiple members. These types of tragedies are devastating to families and will most likely change their dynamics forever.
