Sinclair Law Provides Legal Representation for Seven Forms of Personal Injury
Just as you would seek out a specialized doctor to handle a specific medical concern, you should always seek out a personal injury lawyer
The term "catastrophic injury" or "catastrophic impairment" means that as a result of the injury, the person will suffer disability or permanent disablement. This includes paraplegia, quadriplegia, amputation or the loss of two or more limbs, blindness, and other injuries, such as brain injury that results in mental or behavioral impairment. In the case of catastrophic injury, it is very important to seek a personal injury lawyer, because an attorney will approach the case at a comprehensive level, taking into account the long-term psychological and emotional effects as well as the physical trauma that is placed on the victim and the victim's family.
Wrongful death occurs when an individual is killed through the negligence of another. This may include reckless driving, ignoring traffic laws, and/or many other causes. If you are the beneficiary or heir of the deceased individual, you can file a wrongful death suit against the person who is responsible for your family member's death. Florida's Wrongful Death Act is very detailed and complex, and it is necessary to have an attorney to navigate the intricacies of the law.
Boating and Maritime Accidents
The field of boating and maritime accidents encompasses injuries due to cruise ship accidents, work-related injuries on a tanker, motorboat, or other water vessel, and personal watercraft accidents. Your legal rights vary depending on whether you were a social guest, operator/driver, employee, or bystander, so it is important to have an attorney represent you after a boating or maritime accident.
Although plane crashes are not common, they are the most destructive type of vehicle accidents. Parties that may be legally responsible after an aviation accident include the pilots, the aircraft maintenance provider, airport operators, the airline involved, the owner of the aircraft, and the manufacturer of the aircraft. You may also be entitled to compensation if you suffered from a slip, trip, or fall on a commercial airline, or if you suffered injuries at the hands of another passenger.
Many bicycle accidents occur in Florida every year; in fact, the state of Florida leads the nation in the number of bicycle accident deaths per year. Florida has a no fault insurance law, which is also known as personal injury protection (PIP). This means that despite who is at fault during the accident, each driver or bicyclist who suffers injuries in a vehicle accident in Florida is required to file a claim under his or her own auto insurance policy to recover certain expenses and losses following an automobile accident. The injuries to the bicyclist are frequently much worse than that of the vehicle operator, so it's very important to contact a personal injury lawyer if you or a loved one was involved in a bicycle accident.
