What our clients say about us…

Determining Fault in a Boca Raton Personal Injury Accident

When you are hurt in an accident, determining fault in the accident can be tricky as there can be many layers of responsibility. Depending on the type and severity of the accident, there could be a single person or entity responsible or several different entities at fault. Fault is determined primarily by four things.

1. Duty of care

This is the expectation of a person or entity being watchful, attentive, cautious, and prudent about their property to ensure the safety of those around them. If an expected duty of care can be established, they can be found negligent.

For example, a shop owner is responsible for keeping a store’s floor dry, level, and clear of debris for the safety of their customers.

2. Breach of duty

A person or entity must be found guilty of breach of duty by failing to do something they were legally obligated to. This can be refusing to repair part of a shop, not scheduling routine maintenance, or ignoring a safety hazard.

For instance, a shop owner ignoring a leaky ceiling tile for months. A customer slips, falls, and sustains a traumatic brain injury. The shop owner had a responsibility and noticed the leak beforehand, but chose to do nothing about it. This was a breach of duty.

3. Causation

Proving negligence and causation is an important part of your personal injury case. Your Boca Raton personal injury lawyer must prove that a person or entity was knowledgeable and negligent, and this caused your personal injury.

Using the example above, the lawyer may speak to employees who cleaned up the same leak for weeks, have someone examine the damage to give an estimate on how long it had been occurring, or request video footage showing the leak was cleaned up for a time prior to the accident. This is how the cause of the personal injury is determined.

4. Damages

Damages are financial compensation given to the injured to pay for their injuries, medical costs, and any other costs related to the incident. If your injury was caused by someone’s negligence, you should not pay for your medical costs or related expenses.

The shop owner from the previous example would have to pay for the traumatic brain injury to the victim, their lost wages, and any lingering costs due to the injury like therapy or projected healthcare costs if the damage is deemed permanent.

Common Types of Personal Injuries

Traumatic brain injury

If you are injured and suffer a traumatic brain injury, your life may be permanently changed. Any type of head injury should be seen by a doctor even if you believe it is not a serious issue.

Side effects of a traumatic brain injury may be confusion, disorientation, headaches/ migraines, nausea, vomiting, vertigo, seizures, memory loss, difficulty regulating emotions, personality shifts, loss of speech and communication, loss of motor function, and loss of cognitive function.

Contact one of our traumatic brain injury lawyers to make sure you understand your rights as the victim or the family of the victim of a brain injury.

Spinal cord injury

A spinal cord injury can lead to severe problems, pain, and suffering. Whether you’ve slipped due to an unsafe area or were hit by a car on the side of the road, a spinal cord injury lawyer can help you navigate the waters to receive fair compensation for your injuries.

Side effects of a spinal cord injury may be limited mobility, limited range of motion, nerve damage, muscle tearing, mild to severe pain, muscle spasms, difficulty breathing or coughing, loss of bladder or bowel control, paralysis, and more. A qualified spinal cord injury lawyer can help you pursue compensation while you focus on healing.

Burn injury

Sometimes life-threatening, burn injuries change parts of your body permanently, both inside and out. Whether your burn was caused by an auto accident, liquid burns, chemical burns, explosions, or radiation, contact a burn injury lawyer so you’re properly informed of your rights.

Dog bites

Dogs are man’s best friend – unless they are raised or treated the wrong way. Unfortunately, when these animals are abused or conditioned to be aggressive or defensive, it can lead to very serious injuries to innocent individuals.

If these animals injure people, dog bite injury lawyers step in to make sure that the owners of that animal are held accountable for their dog’s behavior.

Soft tissue damage

Soft tissue damage can lead to a lot of problems in a person’s life. While sometimes not visible on the surface, they can be painful and life-changing. Soft tissue injuries can include whiplash, sprains, contusions/bruising, tendonitis, bursitis, rotator cuff injuries, and more. This doesn’t only concern your medical costs.

Our lawyers understand the change in the quality of life for someone like a baseball player who experiences a rotator cuff injury. That injury impacts their hobbies, earning capacity, and even their mental health.

Wrongful death

Losing a loved one is one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. If that loss could have been prevented, it hurts even more.

When the negligence of another person causes a wrongful death, you have every legal right to pursue damages against them for your loved one. This includes any medical costs accrued due to the accident, lost wages and potential income, and any emotional turmoil and suffering you’ve gone through due to the loss of your loved one.

Personal Injury Questions and Answers

Why do I need a personal injury lawyer?

The role of a personal injury lawyer is to protect your rights and to represent you in a court of law. The court systems and laws can be a complex web of sometimes confusing information, and if your personal injury case needs to be tried by a jury, a personal injury lawyer is there to help you through that process. 

Most lawyers will be paid through a contingency fee, which means you only pay your court fees and lawyer fee if the lawyer you’ve chosen can win your case. 

What do I do when an insurance company calls me about my injury?

Refuse to give a recorded statement and tell them to call back later. Then, call a Boca Raton personal injury lawyer. When an insurance company calls you about your personal injury, their main job is to assign some of the fault to you in any way they can. They’ll ask if you were on your phone, distracted, or something else that may attribute blame for the accident to you. Don’t let them. Our lawyers are equipped with the knowledge on how to deal with insurance companies. Let us protect your rights. 

Should I call the police at the scene of a personal injury?

Calling the police is often the right choice. Too much time can pass between an accident and a settlement, and those at fault may go through a lot of work trying to cover up whatever caused your injury. 

Having a police record of the incident allows the court a small, unbiased snapshot of the day of the injury that documents the cause, environment, and other things that may be used in your case. 

How long do I have to file a lawsuit after a personal injury?

Florida statutes state you have four years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit for compensation. In some cases, when an injury is not obvious or when it takes time to discover the injury, an extension on that four-year limit may be applied, though it is rare to receive it. Most personal injury cases will not be heard after more than four years from the date of the incident.
