The Various Types of Accidental Injuries in Orlando

The top causes of death have not been accidental injuries for some time, possibly for millennia. Disease and aging dominate the top ways in which the average American passes away, as seen in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s data on leading causes of death in 2014.

Indeed, the top three causes of death are heart disease, cancer, and respiratory disease, followed by accidents and then a long list of more diseases. While our society is much safer than it once was and the risk of death relatively small when it comes to accidents, millions of Americans suffer traumatic injuries every year, and hundreds of thousands are victim to incredibly serious types of bodily harm. These injuries rack of unimaginable sums of money in terms of medical expenses, lost quality of life and pain and suffering, property damage, lost wages, and other expenses. Take auto collisions for example. In Florida alone, the total costs for fatal accidents, of which there were 2,450 in 2014, was a staggering $3.02 billion. The individual toll, while obviously smaller in outright numbers, for the average property damage auto liability claim was $3,231 in 2013, with the average bodily injury claim coming in at $15,443, according to ISO Verisk Analytics.

Recovering damages from the liable party in any type of accident, whether it’s on the road or in the air, water, at someone else’s house, at the store, or while you were in your own home using a faulty, unsafe product, can be vital for getting back on your feet and securing the financial future for your family. If you were injured by another party’s careless or reckless actions, contact the experienced Orlando personal injury lawyers of The Pendas Law Firm today.

Orlando Personal Injury Lawyers With Extensive Resources and Experience in Proving Liability

Every successful personal injury case needs to accurately and undeniably prove that the party that caused the accident was guilty of negligence. In law, there is a term called “duty of care,” which is prevalent in every personal injury scenario and in every avenue of society. This duty of care refers to the unwritten rule to which all Americans must adhere: to act in a reasonable manner that does not put the life and limb of another in harm’s way. “Reasonable” may sound like a broad term, but it refers to the way in which the average reasonably prudent person would act in a given scenario.

For example, in the eyes of the law a reasonable person would not be driving 15 miles an hour over the speed limit, would not equip their store with loose extension cords running across aisle ways posing a threat of slip and fall, and would not let their vicious dog off leash in a public park. In fact, duty of care must be upheld even in circumstances where one part may not have been “unreasonably” careless. Any dog owner whose dog attacks a person in public or on private property (if that person was there legally), will be held liable for damages. Similarly, a driver that was obeying all traffic laws and driving at the speed limit leading up to a rear-end collision over icy pavement would likely be held negligent and liable for damages to any injured victims as well. The driver should have known to slow down and give extra space to the car in front of them because of the inclimate weather conditions. The owner of the dog can be held negligent if it cannot be proven that they had knowledge that their dog was likely to attack someone or they were not able to control it. Any injury caused by a dog in Florida will fall under Florida’s dog bite statutes 767.04: “The owner of any dog that bites any person while such person is on or in a public place, or lawfully on or in a private place, including the property of the owner of the dog, is liable for damages suffered by persons bitten, regardless of the former viciousness of the dog or the owners’ knowledge of such viciousness.”

As you can see, there will usually be a negligent party that should be held responsible in most cases of accidental (preventable) injuries. In fact, almost all accidental injuries that were not caused by the injured party themselves were entirely avoidable if not for the careless or reckless actions of another. If you or your loved was injured due to another person’s negligence, contact us today at the Pendas Law firm to talk with one of our experienced Orlando personal injury lawyers at 1-888-573-6327. We are eager to assist you with your case today.
