Personal injury: Premises liability claim follows death at ATM

A Florida family recently announced their intention to file a premises liability lawsuit against the Miami-Dade County Federal Credit Union. A reward of $23,000 is on offer for information that could lead to the arrest of the shooter that killed a 47-year-old librarian last December. The family asserts that the bank failed to provide sufficient security to protect clients who use the ATM from suffering personal injury or be killed.

Who could be liable for personal injury in rollover crashes?

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, most fatal rollover crashes in Florida and other states are single-vehicle wrecks. While driver negligence might play a primary roll in many rollovers, third parties could be responsible for personal injury or wrongful death that result. Other causes for rollovers could include vehicle malfunctions or defects, road conditions, unsafe work zones or the actions of other drivers, even if they are not involved in collisions.

Lime might face personal injury claim after catastrophic injuries

Motorized e-scooters have provided people across the country with easier commutes, including in Florida. Sadly, many safety problems exist, and reports by the Fort Lauderdale Fire rescue indicate that 40 e-scooter-related accidents have been reported, and 31 of those led to personal injury requiring hospitalizations. One incident left the victim in a persistent vegetative state, and her mother has now announced her intention to file a lawsuit against Lime, which was the provider of the scooter that was involved in this accident.

Gathering all the evidence after a personal injury is crucial

A report about a court case against Walt Disney Parks and Resorts U.S. that was heard in a Florida court recently underscores the need for anyone who suffers an injury due to a property owner's negligence to gather as much evidence as possible. A woman from another state filed a personal injury claim against the establishment, alleging a food cart rolled over her foot at the restaurant while she was a visitor there in 2013. However, it appears the plaintiff failed to recognize the severity of the injury at first and gathered no evidence.

Pedestrians and bicyclists face significant personal injury risks

Pedestrians and bicyclists in Florida face multiple safety challenges, and the fact that they have no protection in the event of a crash makes them even more vulnerable. These road users can take precautions to limit the chances of suffering personal injury in an accident. The fact that cyclists and pedestrians are often hard to see -- especially by drivers of large vehicles such as buses or big rigs -- pose the most significant danger.

Documenting all aspects of a personal injury often crucial

Accidents can happen to anyone, anytime and anywhere. Whether it is an automobile crash, a slip-and-fall accident or any other incident, the financial and emotional consequences are often significant. If another person's negligence caused personal injury, the civil justice system in Florida allows the victim to pursue financial relief. However, it could take months, or even years before the case goes to court, making the initial documentation of the injuries and the consequential expenses essential.

Personal injury: Car smashes into group of cyclists, kills 2

Bicycle enthusiasts in Florida face significant risks when they share the roadways with automobiles. The lack of protection bicyclists have, compared to those in enclosed vehicles, make riders much more vulnerable to suffer severe personal injury or worse. A tragic accident occurred on Nov. 25, during Thanksgiving weekend, killing two cyclists and injuring others.

Serious personal injury can follow motorcycle accidents

While people in most other states prepare for the cold of winter, those in Florida expect buckets of sunshine that will favor outdoor activities. Motorcycle enthusiasts will continue to be present on the roadways, as they don't have to put their bikes in storage for the winter. However, the risks of personal injury they face will still exist, and safety authorities advise riders to take refresher safety courses even if they are experienced bikers.

Personal injury: When is a civil lawsuit viable?

Whenever anyone in Florida suffers injuries due to the negligence of another party, there might be grounds to bring a claim to court. The civil justice system allows injured victims to pursue financial relief that will make them whole again. However, before rushing into a personal injury lawsuit, it might be a good idea to find out whether the legal costs will not be more damaging than the injury.

Personal injury claim might follow crane landing on car

A hazmat team was called to clean up oil and fuel spilled at a crash scene in Fort Walton Beach in the Florida panhandle. This followed an accident in which a teenage driver suffered serious injuries after the alleged negligence of a 20-year-old driver of a commercial vehicle. This type of incident could result in a personal injury lawsuit in a civil court.
