When to Consider Making a Personal Injury Claim
An accident can occur at any place or time. Accidents can occur at work, while driving, when visiting friends, in a swimming pool, at a hospital, walking down the street, and almost anyplace. That is why it is important to contact a knowledgeable Ft. Lauderdale personal injury attorney if you have sustained injuries as a result of an accident in or around Ft. Lauderdale. An attorney from our firm will be able to review the details of your accident, and injuries, in order to advise you on the best course of action to pursue.
Not all personal injury cases may have merit, or be successful in filing a claim. You should, however, consider making a personal injury claim or filing a lawsuit if negligence, neglect or a disregard for the safety of others, may have been responsible for your injuries. A construction company who cuts corners by buying sub-quality materials could be ultimately responsible for injuries caused when their building's staircase collapses. A driver who causes a car accident because they are texting while driving should be held liable for the damages and injuries caused. A store that fails to post "wet floor" signs after mopping up a mess could be liable for injuries sustained in a slip & fall accident. Injuries sustained due to an improperly trained, or inattentive, nurse administers the wrong medication, could warrant a medical malpractice suit. Successful injury claims are based upon proving negligence. Some cases are contested, while in others the evidence is clear cut. In either case, you need legal representation to ensure your rights and interests are protected, and so that the maximum possible in damages can be pursued by a professional.
It is in cases such as these, we advise you consult with an attorney at Feingold & Posner immediately. We will review your case and work diligently to see that your rights are protected.
