Personal injury is injury caused by another person or entity. It may be due to reckless actions or negligence in which harm was not intentional but proper precautions were not followed or it may be intentional as in the case of assault. In addition, personal injury may “direct liability” which is the result of a defective product. Personal injury may result in serious injury or long-term disability.
A catastrophic injury results in severe permanent disability. Catastrophic injuries include spinal cord injury, brain injuries, birth trauma, severe burns, brain damage or other disfiguring or disabling injuries which may require long-term medical treatment. Catastrophic injury may be caused by intentional actions or by negligence.
Workplace injury occurs in the place of employment. Every workplace has environmental hazards but care must be taken to protect workers from injury. When injury occurs in the workplace or due to workplace activities, the employer may be liable.
Wrongful death is the result of harm caused by another person or entity which results in death. Wrongful death may be caused intentionally, by negligence or reckless action or due to product defects. Loved ones of wrongful death victims have a limited time to address emotional and other damages caused by the loss.
A common cause of serious injuries, car crashes often require substantial amounts of financial compensation to recover from. If your case qualifies to move beyond Florida’s no-fault system, you can file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party to cover your accident-related financial expenses and non-economic damages.
A West Palm Beach car accident lawyer from the Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo can help you negotiate a full settlement from the insurance company so that you don’t have to worry about being taken advantage of and leaving money on the table.
Collisions involving 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, and other commercial vehicles frequently result in devastating injuries and numerous other damages. These cases tend to be far more complicated than crashes between two passenger vehicles, as the average semi has a number of different parties involved in its operation and maintenance.
We’ll help you investigate and sort out who was at fault for the trucking accident so that you can name everyone responsible in your claim—thereby maximizing the value of your potential settlement.
When you’re a motorcyclist who’s been in a wreck, it can be difficult to get the compensation you deserve. Insurers are quick to take advantage of stereotypes that say bikers are reckless drivers, and they won’t hesitate to blame you for the motorcycle crash.
We know how to keep the insurance companies honest and expose this tactic for the ad hominem attack against bikers that it is. Attorney Shomo can ensure that your claim gets taken seriously and treated with respect, allowing you to recover the funds you need to pay for your recovery.
Medical malpractice occurs when accepted standards of care are not provided by a doctor, nurse, dentist or other practitioner. Medical malpractice may result in injury, illness, or disability with the need for continuing medical treatment. Some cases of medical malpractice may result in death.
Nursing Home Abuse
Up to one-third of all nursing home residents may be the victim of nursing home abuse. Abuse may be intentional such as physical abuse or may be the result of negligence resulting in bed sores, infections or dehydration. Residents in long term care facilities may also be subject to emotional abuse or financial predation. People who have suffered nursing home abuse have a higher risk of death than those who have not.
Each year thousands of people are injured by medications. These may be over-the-counter or prescription medications. The Food and Drug Administration requires testing but not all hazards are discovered in time and some companies have failed to disclose dangers of medications they produce. Drugs may result in injury, long term disability and even death.
A class action lawsuit is a filed by one plaintiff on behalf of a group of others who were injured in the same manner by the same person, product or entity. Class actions are most common where the allegations involve a large number of people who were injured by the same defendant in the same way. A class action lawsuit allows for each person to be compensated at the same time without an individual trial.
