Florida Personal Injury Law Firm – Case Types

Our lawyers have successfully handled thousands of personal injury claims with all types of injuries throughout Florida. We have not seen it all but we have seen a lot, including things you probably could not even imagine.

Personal injury claims or lawsuits begin when someone is injured by a negligent, reckless, or intentional act of another. If that other person is found to be at-fault and therefore legally responsible for the injury, then they are liable for the injury and may be made to compensate the injured party.

  • Car Accidents and Truck Accidents When someone makes a decision to drive a car or truck on a public road, then that person is taking responsibility for the safety of everyone else on the road. That is why we have laws in Florida requiring drivers to purchase insurance.  We all know that car accidents happen. If a driver’s negligence or carelessness leads to the injury of another, then that driver should be held accountable
  • Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Just because a family member or loved one enters a nursing home or assisted living facility does not mean that they surrender their rights, and it does not mean that they should be subjected to abuse or neglect. People may need help with daily activities, but they still have basic human rights and those rights are protected under the law. Lawsuits against nursing home or assisted living facilities commonly involve bedsores, pressure ulcers, malnutrition, burns, choking, falls, elder abuse, and physical or sexual assault.
  • Medical Malpractice When medical personnel or medical facilities make mistakes, the results can be devastating to the patients. The legal world calls these mistakes or careless acts medical malpractice. Malpractice is defined as a dereliction of a professional duty or a failure to exercise an ordinary degree of professional skill which results in injury, loss, or damage. These types of injuries or loss typically involve surgical or medical errors, pharmacy medication errors, misdiagnosis, or a failure to diagnose.
  • Wrongful Death When someone is killed or somehow dies due to the negligence or misconduct of another, the surviving members of the victim’s family may have a “wrongful death” claim. In Florida, the law requires that the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate file the wrongful death claim. The deceased person’s will or estate plan might name the personal representative or, if there is no will, the court will appoint one.
  • Products Liability Sometimes the products we use are dangerous or defective. Manufacturers or sellers may be held liable for placing a defective or dangerous product into the hands of consumers. The legal rules for products are somewhat different from other types of personal injury law. It is important to speak with an attorney right away if you have been injured by a defective product.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

A personal injury lawyer should alway be considering the possibility that a personal injury claim may result in a lawsuit being filed and that a jury may ultimately have to decide liability and damages. Therefore, from the very beginning of a case, a lawyer must evaluate all the facts and circumstances of the accident, consider all the aspects of liability and coverage, and assess all the injuries and related losses. Once armed with all the needed information, the lawyer must present it the opposing party, defense attorney and/or the insurance company.  Sometimes, the other side will not accept liability or will dispute the damages. If no compromise can be achieved, then a civil lawsuit (not criminal) might be the only option for recovery. The civil legal system can be complicated to navigate. Having a trial lawyer with litigation experience and experience in the courtroom can be extremely beneficial.

Hopefully, a personal injury claim can be resolved without filing a lawsuit. Some accident cases, however, require a lawsuit and sometimes may even require a trial. Not all cases are the same, but each case should be treated as if it could go to trial. That is why having a trial lawyer representing you is important. Trial lawyers are lawyers who prepare cases for trial and actually try cases. Not all trial lawyers, however, are equal.

The Florida Bar provides a Board-Certification provides a board-certification program for lawyers to help the public hire someone who has a certification that shows that they are an expert who specializes in various areas of the law.  Do Not hire a lawyer who is not Board Certified unless you want to risk getting a lawyer who is not an expert. “To be certified, a lawyer must have significant trial experience; demonstrate substantial involvement in the field of law for which certification is sought; have a satisfactory peer review of competence in the specialty field, as well as character, ethics and professionalism, by attorneys and judges familiar with the lawyer; and pass a written examination. Less than 7% of all Florida lawyers are Board Certified, and less than 2% of Florida lawyers share the honor of being Board Certified as a Civil Trial Lawyer.

Edmund Normand is a Board-Certified Civil Trial Lawyer. By becoming a Board-Certified Civil Trial Lawyer, Edmund Normand has earned the legal right to the label “Expert and Specialist” since 1996. He was recently re-certified for a fourth time. Very few lawyers in Florida are Board Certified for this many certification periods. This is a mark of quality and experience from the Florida Bar that you can trust, not a cheap claim on a BillBoard or TV Ad that any lawyer can get, even lawyers with little to no experience but who can pay or borrow to get an ad before you.

All of the work we do related to personal injuries is based on a contingency fee, also called “no win, no fee.” In other words, you don’t pay anything unless we obtain a cash payment for you through a settlement or verdict. We are happy to discuss any financial concerns with you.

Every case is different, which means every case has its own unique timeline. Some cases can be resolved in a matter of weeks (e.g., car accident), whereas others may take years (e.g., class action) Some cases can be finished in a matter of weeks and some may take several years. Most cases are somewhere in the middle. You only have one opportunity to make a personal injury claim and to obtain a recovery. You should make sure that you have the right attorney to ensure that your rights are fully protected and that you are properly compensated. We at Normand law are experts in Personal Injury and Civil Trial law. Our experience helps us help you get the best recovery in the shortest time frame.

First, Call the Police. You must get an Accident Report filed by the police to prove the that the car crash took place and where and why as well as to verify the insurance and driver’s license of the other parties involved and to secure the addresses of all witnesses and passengers of all vehicles. Take pictures of the scene of the auto accident, of the cars involved in the accident and license plates for all cars involved. Next you need to seek medical attention. Finally, talk to an attorney before speaking with an insurance adjuster so that you can be protected when reporting the car accident claim to the insurance company.
