Attorney Representing Victims Injured in Accidents in Fort Lauderdale and Beyond

Accidents happen every day throughout South Florida under a variety of circumstances. Regardless of the specific situation that caused an accident, however, most accidents are caused by the carelessness of one or more parties, and anyone injured because of someone else’s negligence has a right to seek redress for their harm. If you or your loved one suffered harm due to an accident, you should confer with a skilled Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer as soon as possible to determine whether you may be owed damages for your harm. Joseph I. Lipsky is an assertive advocate who can assess the facts of your case and advise you on your options for seeking compensation. He can fight vigorously on your behalf in settlement negotiations or at trial.

Car Accidents

The roads in South Florida are crowded with residents and tourists, and car accidents are a common occurrence. Car accidents not only can cause severe injuries and significant property damage but also can cause emotional trauma and result in monumental costs. If you were harmed in a car accident, you may be able to recoup compensation from the person who caused the accident and your subsequent harm. This may include compensation for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, property damage, and the costs of future treatment, among other damages. Under Florida law, even if the injured person was partially responsible for an accident, he or she still may recover damages, which are diminished in proportion to the fault attributed to the injured person. If you were injured in a car accident, you should meet with a personal injury attorney in Fort Lauderdale to discuss your case.

Personal Injury

Serious injuries can result not only from motor vehicle collisions but also from slip and fall accidents, defective products, medical malpractice, dog bites, construction accidents, and other dangerous situations. In most cases in which a person who suffered injuries seeks compensation via a personal injury lawsuit, he or she will allege that the defendant was negligent. To recover damages in a negligence claim, the injured person must prove that the defendant owed the injured person a duty to conform to a certain standard of behavior, which was breached. The injured person also must show that the breach caused the accident, and the accident caused the injured person to suffer harm. Proving liability in a personal injury case can be complicated, so a victim should retain an attorney to help them gather evidence and present persuasive arguments.

Wrongful Death

Sadly, many accidents ultimately cause the death of one or more people who were involved. If you suffered the loss of a loved one due to an accident in South Florida, you should speak to a capable Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney regarding the damages that you may be able to recover in a wrongful death claim. Under the Florida Wrongful Death Act, most wrongful death lawsuits must be filed within two years of the date of the accident by the personal representative of the deceased person’s estate. The Wrongful Death Act also defines who can recoup compensation and which compensation is available.
