Top Causes of Injuries in South Florida

In Florida, motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of injuries and fatalities. The cost of motor vehicle crashes in the Sunshine State in a single year was $3.16 billion according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This included $40 million in medical costs and $3.12 billion in lost-work costs.

In addition to motor vehicle crashes, other top causes of injuries and deaths include:

  • Slip and falls due to poorly maintained property or dangerous conditions
  • Nursing home abuse
  • Medical mistakes
  • Accidental drowning
  • Dog bites and animal attacks

Whenever an injury or fatality occurs, it is important to determine if someone was liable. For example:

  • A property owner or a renter could be held legally liable for a slip and fall or for drowning in an unsecured swimming pool.
  • A nursing home could be legally liable for abuse or neglect perpetrated by staff members.
  • A driver or a trucking company could be held legally responsible for a motor vehicle collision caused by careless driving or a violation of the rules of the road.
  • A dog owner could be held legally responsible for a bite injury.

An Okeechobee injury attorney at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene can review the circumstances of your injury or your loved one’s death to determine if someone can be considered responsible for your losses under Florida law.

Florida Law Allows for Compensation for Injuries

Compensation for injuries can be obtained by negotiating an out-of-court settlement. Generally, insurance companies such as medical malpractice insurers, homeowners’ insurers or auto insurers will be responsible for covering losses. This means insurance companies will be negotiating a settlement with victims.

If no settlement agreement is reached, Okeechobee accident attorneys can represent victims in court. Pursuing a personal injury or wrongful death case at trial can be complicated because the victim has the burden of proving his or her case. Steinger, Iscoe & Greene has represented more than 32,000 injured clients in settlements and court trials and we are prepared to put our legal experience to work to help you make a compelling case.
