Have you been injured on the job?
Most workers injured on the job assume their employer’s workers’ compensation insurance will cover all of their expenses, but this is not always the case. Temporary or permanent disability costs can exceed your workers’ compensation and if the accident was a result of your employer’s egregious actions, a product defect, a toxic substance or a third-party, you may have a right to recover those expenses. Of course, if your employer isn’t properly covered for workers’ compensation, they could be legally liable for all of your expenses. Only through a thorough and free attorney review can you know if your case goes beyond workers’ compensation coverage.
In Florida, business owners are obligated to keep their premises safe for their customers. Many crimes are foreseeable and if the business owner doesn’t take the proper precautions to prevent crime in their establishment, they can be held responsible for the personal injuries you’ve suffered. Shopping malls, nightclubs and bars, gas stations, convenient stores, concert venues, hotels, cruise ships and airports are just a few of the places that can attract criminals. ATMs are one of the most common targets and its the responsibility of the ATM owner or operator to employ proper security and deterrent measures to keep you safe from harm. If you were the victim of crime while patronizing another business, the business owner may have the obligation to help pay your expenses and aid in your recovery.
Have you or your pet been injured in an animal attack?
In most cases, an owner of a dog or other domestic pet has liability for any injury or damage that occurred as a result of the animal attacking another person or animal. Aggressive dogs like Pit Bulls, Dobermans and Rottweilers are the cause of most animal attacks. Since these animals’ behaviors pose known threats, the owners must take precautions to prevent it from attacking anything or anyone. However, even small dogs can pose a threat if they cause a person to trip and fall. Other animals like horses, snakes and birds can also hurt people or other animals. If you or your pet was injured as a result of an animal attack, a free consultation with an attorney can put you on the right track to getting the justice you deserve.
