Affectionately nicknamed “The City Beautiful,” Orlando is a major metropolis in Florida’s Orange County with a population of over 2.1 million residents. It draws over 50 million tourists a year to sites such as Disney World and Universal Studios. The city also hosts frequent large conferences at the Orange County Convention Center. As with other bustling American urban areas, many people are hurt each year in Orlando because other individuals or entities acted negligently. At Frankl & Kominsky, our accomplished injury lawyers can help you get the compensation you deserve after an accident. We are skilled in handling a variety of claims, including those arising from car crashes, motorcycle collisions, truck wrecks, wrongful death, medical malpractice, premises liability, product liability, and nursing home negligence.Take Legal Action to Protect Your Rights
When you’ve been harmed through the fault of someone else, you can pursue a lawsuit against the responsible party and seek compensation for your injuries. Typically, a victim can file a negligence claim against whoever was responsible. This may be a useful option when someone fails to take the care that a reasonably prudent person would use under the same or similar circumstances. Negligence claims must be filed within four years of the date of an accident.
These cases can arise in a variety of ways. One example could be a restaurant that serves food on a terrace that eventually collapses, causing harm to diners. Depending on the details of the situation, the restaurant might be held liable for the injuries that resulted from this accident. Or a driver might run a red light and strike a pedestrian on a crosswalk. If he or she sustains injuries, the motorist could be called to account for that harm. In another situation, a physician who gives a patient the wrong medicine may be liable if the patient’s condition worsens as a result.
After successfully showing negligence, an injured person can seek financial compensation from the at-fault party. A damages award can come through a settlement or from a jury verdict at a trial. While our goal is to settle all of our cases quickly, we are not afraid to go to court and vigorously advocate for your rights if necessary. The specific amount of compensation that a victim can recover varies according to the extent of his or her harm. Typically, he or she can try to recover medical bills, the costs of future treatment, lost income and benefits, pain and suffering, property damage, and more.
If your loved one died due to the negligence of another person or entity, you may be able to seek compensation through a wrongful death claim. This type of lawsuit can be filed on behalf of a deceased person who is unable to bring the claim on his or her own behalf because he or she did not survive the accident. Under Florida law, the personal representative of an estate can bring a wrongful death action on behalf of the decedent. These claims are complicated and must be filed within two years from the date of death.
