Tenacious Lawyers for Broward County Accident Victims

Broward County is a county on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean with a population of over 1.8 million residents. The residents of the area comprise an ethnically diverse population, which leads to the presence of a number of languages, including Spanish and Creole. Broward Country is home to many accredited colleges and universities, including Nova Southeastern University, Florida Atlantic University, and Keiser University. Just as in any other vibrant region in the United States, a number of residents and visitors in this county fall victim to accidents throughout the year. If you or a loved one has been harmed by someone else’s carelessness in Broward County, the accident attorneys at Frankl & Kominsky can help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Recovering Damages for your Florida Injury

Victims who are hurt because of the carelessness of another person or entity have a legal right to seek compensation from the at-fault party. We help victims of negligence understand their rights and options in a variety of situations, including car crashes, truck collisions, slip and falls, defective products, construction accidents, and medical malpractice.

In most cases, an injured person can pursue a personal injury claim under the theory of negligence. This consists of the failure to take proper care in a given activity, whether specialized or ordinary. Negligence lawsuits are highly fact-intensive. To win on this type of claim, a victim must demonstrate that the defendant had a duty to exercise reasonable care, that the defendant breached this duty, that the breach caused the victim’s injuries, and that quantifiable damages were incurred as a result.

The duty to exercise reasonable care simply means having a certain degree of concern for the safety of others in one’s actions. Whether someone acted using reasonable care is usually assessed by how an ordinary person would act in similar circumstances. Unfortunately, there are countless examples of people breaching the duty of care they owe to others on a regular basis. For example, drivers have a duty to observe speed limits, so speeding likely is a breach of this duty. Commercial drivers who disregard federal and state rules on how many hours they can drive may have violated their duty of care. Similarly, store owners who fail to use signs to mark a wet floor may have breached their duty to keep their premises safe for customers.

However, the defendant can be liable for the victim’s harm only if the breach directly caused the injuries. A victim cannot recover if he or she was completely responsible for the injuries or if someone other than the defendant was at fault. In Florida, a compensation award may be reduced by the injured person’s degree of fault. If a victim was 20% liable for an accident, for example, the compensation awarded to that victim is reduced by 20%. He or she would receive 80% of the full damages amount.

In some cases, you can sue the employer of the negligent party under the principle of vicarious liability. Florida law allows you to seek compensation from an employer if you were injured by their employee who was acting within the scope of his or her employment at the time of the accident. This concept can apply in a variety of situations, including truck accidents and premises liability cases.

If a close family member of yours has been killed because of the negligence of another person, you may be able to bring a wrongful death claim on your loved one’s behalf. Wrongful death claims are complex, so it is crucial to contact an attorney as soon as you are thinking about pursuing such a claim.
