    Back injuries in many accidents, the most common ways to occur are in a car accident, slip and fall, at work, in a motorcycle, or in a bicycle. These types of accident can be caused as a result of someone else negligence and you may be able to file a personal injury claim pursuing financial compensation.

This is why a back injury can become extremely painful and may require extended treatment and therapy. Some common types of back injuries are whiplash, muscle strains and sprains, herniated disc, fractures, facet joint spine injuries, spinal cord injuries or spondylolisthesis.

  • Car Accidents

    Being in a car accident is very common, every day in Florida someone gets injured or even killed in a car accident. Car accidents can be caused by many things like a distracted driver, reckless driving, speeding, collision, and others. The best thing to do as an injured party is call 911, collect information, take notes and pictures of the accident, seek medical attention, and contact an experienced personal injury attorney. It is important that as a victim in an injury claim you avoid speaking with anyone other than your attorney, avoid discussing the accident and take notes if anyone from an insurance company contacts you.

  • Rideshare Accidents

    Nowadays it is very popular to use the rideshare services from Uber and Lyft. Rideshare companies may offer a cheaper service than a traditional taxi, but it is important to know that there are some concerns you must keep in mind. Rideshare companies hire drivers to use their own car to provide such service. This is why you might be involved in an rideshare accident as a passenger in an Uber or Lyft or as another driver who gets hit by an Uber or Lyft driver. It is important to prove that the damage was caused by someone else negligence no matter which of the above is your situation. It needs to be proven that the driver owed a duty to you for reasonable care, that the driver breached the previous mentioned duty and that you were injured due to the breach of the driver.

  • Truck Accidents

    Truck accidents can end up in terrible results like catastrophic injuries or death to any passenger in the vehicle. Most common causes of truck accidents are driving the truck fatigued, poor maintenance of the truck, inexperienced driving, overloaded trailers, distracted driving, excessive speed, driver’s blind spots, and many other reasons. If you get injured in a truck accident resulting the negligence of another person you may be entitled to medical expenses, property damage, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, out of pocket costs, disability, disfigurement and permanent scarring, loss of consortium, mental and emotional suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and more.

  • Workers’ Compensation

  • Workers’ compensation is an insurance that provide benefits to all employees that become injured while working. However, you don’t sue your employer for the accident but instead you open a claim to obtain compensation benefits through the Office of the Judges of Compensations Claims. The types of injuries can be car accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, construction site accidents, and more. The benefits provided through Workers’ compensations are medical treatment, wage replacement benefits (Temporary Total Disability, Temporary Partial Disability and Permanent Total Disability) and death benefits.

Accidents can cause extreme grief and regularly take off an injured individual with numerous physical, emotional, and physical challenges to overcome. The injured individual or family members of those murdered may be able to get certain types of compensation if the accident has been determined to be caused by another person's negligence.
