Nursing Home Accidents and Assisted Living Facility Accidents
Injuries suffered by residents of local nursing homes and assisted living facilities may at first seem like they resulted by accident but are more likely the effect of something far more insidious: understaffing. As a nursing home accident lawyer, I can help you and your family get the answers you deserve.
Understaffing is the Root Cause of Harm in Florida Nursing Homes and Assisted Living Facilities. Inadequate staffing has devastating effects on the lives of our vulnerable elderly parents, grandparents, husbands and wives. Understaffing, poor training, and inadequate supervision often leads to Bed Sores & Pressure Ulcers, Malnutrition & Dehydration, Infections, C-Diff & MRSA, Physical, Mental & Sexual Abuse, Medication Errors & Misuse, Falls & Fractures, Bowel Impactions, Choking & Aspiration Pneumonia and many other life-threatening problems.

Car Accidents, Motorcycle Crashes and Trucking Collisions
Drunk or careless drivers who are texting or simply not paying attention to the road can cause a serious vehicle accident in an instant. A serious car, truck or motorcycle accident can up-end your life forever, leaving you unsure about how you’re going to care for yourself and loved ones.
Trucking companies sometimes ignore safety rules and push tired drivers to press on to make deliveries are a major hazard on our roads.
As an experienced vehicle accident lawyer, I work hard to hold safety violators accountable for the serious harm that they cause on our local streets and roadways in car, motorcycle and truck accidents.
As a local truck accident lawyer, I investigate the corporate misconduct behind the collision that is often the root cause. Bad trucking companies that fail to follow the safety rules must be held accountable.

As a cyclist who rides the Legacy Trail and our local roadways, I am concerned about bicycle safety. Distracted motorists pose the greatest risk to bicycle riders who follow the rules of the road. Bicycle accidents can have devastating consequences.
While helmet safety designs have improved over the years and decrease the risk of traumatic brain injury from collisions, the remainder of the cyclist’s body remains especially vulnerable in a collision with a car. It is not uncommon for a bicycle versus car crash to result in fractured bones and the need for surgery.

Injury to Pedestrians
Florida is one of the most dangerous states for pedestrians. Each year, hundreds of pedestrians are struck and killed or seriously injured by careless, drunk and distracted drivers. If you or a family member has been struck as a pedestrian and seriously injured by a careless, drunk or distracted driver, call our law firm for a free evaluation of your case at (941) 485-7600.
Injuries from Falling / Property Safety Hazards
No matter how careful someone is, a dangerous condition or defect on someone’s property or at a place of business can cause them to fall and suffer serious injuries. In fact, fall related injury is the leading cause of death for individuals over the age of 65 in the United States.
Business owners and homeowners have a duty under Florida law to maintain their property in a reasonably safe condition. If a negligent business or homeowner has caused you to fall and suffer injury on their property, you may be entitled to recover compensation under Florida law for such things as medical expenses, pain and suffering and the loss of the enjoyment of life.
We work hard to identify all property safety hazards and to obtain compensation and all damages available under Florida law.
