PERSONAL INJURY

Personal injury is an area of law where a claim or lawsuit is brought on behalf of someone who sustains an injury to the body or mind. A personal injury lawsuit is type of civil matter called a tort. This means that there is no jail time at stake, but rather the lawsuit is about money damages. An injury can happen many different ways. Most commonly a personal injury claim occurs when someone is hurt because of someone else’s negligence or intentional acts or omissions.

SLIPS, TRIPS & FALLS

Slip and fall’s and trip and fall’s on someone else’s property that result in serious injury are called premises liability cases. A property owner or person or entity in control of the property may be held financially responsible for those injuries occurring on the property that are due to a dangerous condition. The key issue that a Miami slip and fall lawyer is looking to prove is that the property owner knew or should have known about the dangerous condition.

CAR ACCIDENTS

Vehicle accidents are the most common type of personal injury and wrongful death cases in Florida. They are usually caused by someone being negligent or reckless behind the wheel. Common allegations we see are improper lane changes, careless driving, reckless driving, failing to keep a proper lookout, driving too fast for conditions, failing to perceive hazards, disobeying traffic signals and laws and driving under the influence.

WRONGFUL DEATH

Miami Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer & Miami Wrongful Death Attorney. We understand that no amount of money can replace a parent or child. Often, the surviving family members are too preoccupied with grief to contemplate lawsuits against possible at-fault parties, and rightly so. At Perkins Law Offices, we confidentially counsel families about their rights and potential causes of action if your loved one is killed because of the wrongful conduct of another person or corporate entity.

BOATING ACCIDENTS

Contact a Florida Boating Accident Attorney if you are injured on or by a boat or pleasure craft while in an ocean, river, bay, lake or any other type of navigable waterway or body of water. Perkins Law Offices is an experienced Boating Accident law firm, which is why we understand that most likely these cases will be governed by special laws called Maritime and Admiralty. Under maritime law, ship owners and operators have a duty of reasonable care to all passengers and seamen.

CRUISE SHIP INJURIES

Cruise lines, such as Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines, Celebrity Cruise Lines, Carnival Corporation and Norwegian Cruise Lines are headquartered in Miami, Florida. Most passengers do not realize that the cruise ticket they buy from those big companies is a contract for carriage. The fine print in ticket contract governs where the passenger can bring a lawsuit, called a venue provision. Most lawsuits against the Cruise lines are required to be brought in Federal District Court.

DEFECTIVE DRUGS & MEDICAL DEVICES

Sometimes the medicines and medical devices intended to help people and prolong our lives, wind up doing more harm than good. Manufacturing pharmaceuticals and medical equipment is big business. Billions of dollars are at play in these industries, therefore sometimes corporations put profits over safety. This is precisely what happened in December 2006 to a young man with muscular dystrophy when his ventilator malfunctioned due to a design and maintenance defect resulting in his untimely death.

HURRICANE & STORM PROPERTY DAMAGE

The first and only call you should make is to the Miami hurricane property damage lawyers at Perkins Law Offices. We will guide you through the entire process from start to finish. Homeowners and business owners pay premiums for property damage insurance. When a hurricane, windstorm, fire, or water leak or damage occurs, many people think that their trusted insurance company will take care of them. Often, however, insurance companies try to avoid paying benefits out to their policyholders, focusing on protecting their bottom line instead of their insureds.

CONSTRUCTION SITE & WORKZONE ACCIDENTS

The construction industry that build our buildings, homes and highways, try to work quickly to make deadlines and earn as much profit as possible. This can lead to using unskilled labor and cutting corners. These mistakes can hurt people. In Florida the booming construction projects that continually change our skyline and routes to work, are challenged by weather conditions, requirements for hurricane protection, people with disabilities and construction materials new to the industry. Faulty designs and engineering do happen resulting in hidden perils that may not come to light for years to come.

PRODUCT LIABILITY

Products that we use or consume everyday without giving a second thought to, can sometimes wind up hurting us. Dangerous products are placed into the stream of commerce by manufacturers, distributors, and retailers putting consumers at risk for injury and death. Miami Product liability lawyers represent those consumers who become victims of dangerous or defective products. Just about any item we purchase, use or consume can have a deleterious effect if proper standards in their production, design or distribution are not adhered to.

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE

Sometimes the medicines and medical devices intended to help people and prolong our lives, wind up doing more harm than good. Manufacturing pharmaceuticals and medical equipment is big business. Billions of dollars are at play in these industries, therefore sometimes corporations put profits over safety. This is precisely what happened in December 2006 to a young man with muscular dystrophy when his ventilator malfunctioned due to a design and maintenance defect resulting in his untimely death.

DOG BITES

In Florida, dog owners are strictly liable when their dog bites someone and causes injury. Strictly liable means the dog’s owner will have to pay for any damages that flow from the bite whether the owner was negligent or not in causing the dog bite. But what happens when the owner of the dog has no money to pay for your damages and/or their Homeowners insurance excludes coverage for dog bites? Perkins Law Offices will investigate to determine if there are any other viable defendants whose negligence may have caused or contributed to the dog bite or attack.
