A Boca Raton Personal Injury Lawyer Handling All Types of Injury Cases

The word “accident” suggests an incident that is unforeseen and, therefore, no one’s fault. However, the reality is that many accidents are avoidable and often caused by someone’s negligence. If you have suffered a serious injury due to someone else’s carelessness, a Boca Raton personal injury lawyer from The Grife Law Firm can help. We have experience handling all types of personal injury claims and know how to help you get the compensation you need to cover your medical bills, lost wages, and other losses.

Motor Vehicle Accidents In Florida

Accidents involving motor vehicles are among the most common types of personal injury cases that we handle. However, the fact that they are common does not mean that they are simple or straightforward. Your case is unique, and you have unique challenges that you are facing. We dig deep into every case we handle to identify the specific cause of the accident, the potential issues, and whatever challenges you may be facing so that we can develop a personalized strategy for helping you get your life back on track. We work with clients in all types of motor vehicle accidents, including the following:

Whatever type of motor vehicle accident you were involved in, an experienced Boca Raton personal injury lawyer from our firm can help you get the compensation you need to put it behind you.

Florida Catastrophic Injuries

Thankfully, most of our clients suffer injuries that are only temporary. As painful as their injuries may be and as disruptive to their lives as their accidents may be, they can expect to recover and return to how their lives were before the accident. For those who suffer catastrophic injuries, however, there is very little certainty about what life looks like going forward. As a result, it is critical to work with a Boca Raton personal injury lawyer who understands the complexities of these cases and how to get the best possible outcome.

Catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputations, and burn injuries often result in permanent disability. You may be unable to work for a long period or for the rest of your life. You may face years of intense medical treatment and rehabilitation, resulting in significant medical bills and other costs. Your life may never be the same, so it is vital that you get the compensation you need and your family needs to move forward.

Medical Malpractice In Florida

Medical malpractice occurs when a physician, nurse, or other healthcare provider fails to meet the standard of care when providing treatment. These cases can be incredibly difficult because identifying medical malpractice is not easy; there are no guaranteed outcomes when it comes to medical treatment, and complications and side effects are common.

For these reasons, you need to contact a Boca Raton personal injury lawyer as soon as possible if you suspect you have suffered harm due to medical malpractice. They can assess your case, determine whether you have a claim, and explain your options. Should you decide to pursue a claim, they can gather the evidence you need to build a strong case so that you can get the compensation you deserve.

Premises Liability

Premises liability involves a property owner’s legal responsibility for the safety of their guests and other visitors. Whether it is private property or a commercial establishment, property owners have a legal duty to guests, customers, and other visitors from reasonably foreseeable harm. Premises liability claims can include the following:

Property owners can breach their duty of care by failing to make necessary repairs, failing to inspect the property for hazards routinely, or failing to warn guests of known hazards. As straightforward as this sounds, proving your case will not be easy. If you have been injured on another person’s property, the best thing to do is contact a Boca Raton personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.

Dog Attacks 

Dog attacks can result in very severe injuries that require extensive medical treatment. Young children and the elderly are especially at risk. However, regardless of your age, you may be entitled to compensation if you have been injured in a dog attack.

Unlike other states, Florida applies a strict liability standard regarding dog attack cases. In other words, you do not need to prove that the owner was negligent in some way or that the dog had a propensity for aggressive behavior. Instead, the fact that you were attacked is sufficient to pursue a claim for compensation for your injuries. You should be aware, however, that there are exceptions to this rule. If you have been injured in a dog attack, a Boca Raton personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the claim process so that you can get the compensation you deserve.

Wrongful Death

Tragically, some accidents result in death at the scene or later when the victim succumbs to their injuries. While no amount of money can replace your loss, you may be entitled to compensation that can help you pay your bills and cover other losses as a result of your loved one’s death. Florida law limits who may pursue a wrongful death claim, but you may be able to recover compensation for the following:

  • Loss of the victim’s current and future financial support, including their wages, retirement income, benefits, and other income
  • Loss of companionship, emotional support, and guidance
  • Medical and funeral expenses

The loss of a loved one can have a tremendous impact on your family’s future. If you have lost a loved one in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, a Boca Raton personal injury lawyer can help you get the compensation you need

Cruise Ship Accidents

In many ways, cruise ship accidents are very similar to premises liability cases; slip and fall accidents are among the most common types of cruise ship accidents that result in injuries. However, cruise ship accidents can also include injuries and deaths due to illness, drownings, and even medical malpractice.

Unfortunately, many people do not realize that these cases are far more complex than the common personal injury case for several reasons. One, your case may be governed by maritime law, a unique area of the law that very few lawyers have experience with. Second, your ticket may limit where you can pursue your claim and how long you have to file a lawsuit. These issues are in addition to the fact that the scene of your accident may not be readily accessible, and the witnesses may be from an entirely different part of the country.

The bottom line is that you need a Boca Raton personal injury lawyer who has experience in handling these cases in order to be successful. If you have been injured on a cruise ship, contact us as soon as possible before you lose your rights.

Insurance Disputes 

Insurance provides an important safety net for people who are injured or suffer unexpected losses. Unfortunately, many people discover they don’t have the coverage they thought they had when they need it most. We rely upon insurance agents and other insurance professionals to guide us on which insurance products best meet our needs and how much coverage we should purchase. When they fail to provide that guidance, they can be held accountable. However, these claims are extraordinarily complicated, and you will likely need a Boca Raton personal injury lawyer who knows how to take insurance companies and their agents to task in these situations.

Product Liability In Florida

Every year, thousands of people across the country are injured by defective products. A defective product is not a product that is damaged or broken but rather one that is unreasonably dangerous when used as intended by the consumer. Consumer products can be considered defective in one of three ways:

  1. Defective due to a design flaw;
  2. Defective due to a manufacturing flaw; or
  3. Defective due to a lack of warnings or instructions on how to safely use the product.

If a defective product has injured you, you may be able to hold the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer liable for your injuries and other losses. Furthermore, these cases are judged according to a strict liability standard, meaning you do not need to prove negligence.

Product liability cases involve pursuing a claim against a corporate entity. Proving your case can be difficult, and you should expect them to defend themselves aggressively. A Boca Raton personal injury lawyer with experience handling product liability claims can help you pursue your rights.

Defective Drugs and Defective Medical Devices

We assume that over-the-counter medications, prescription drugs, and various medical devices are safe. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Pharmaceutical companies will sometimes downplay potential risks, rush through testing, or fail to take steps to guard against impurities and other defects. The end result is that people can suffer considerable harm that is often irreversible from these defective drugs.

Both defective drugs and defective medical devices fall under the umbrella of product liability claims but warrant special consideration – it can be difficult to know whether you have suffered harm as a result of using a dangerous drug or medical device, and even harder to prove. If you believe you have suffered harm as a result of a dangerous drug or medical device, contact a Boca Raton personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
