Obtaining justice for personal injury claims
when your rights have been violated
Perhaps you or a relative has been injured, through no fault of your own. In some cases, this stems from a pure accident. Often though, the cause is the carelessness or negligence of another party. The actions or lack of action taken by another person can result in damage, pain, or even death. In these cases, the individual who was at fault is legally responsible, and a Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer can work to see your interests best served. Examples of personal injury cases we frequently handle include:
- Property damage
- Child injuries
- Catastrophic injuries
- Wrongful death
- Product liability
- Premises liability
- Dog bites
- Negligent security
- Accidents and injuries in nightclubs
If it seems like the news and media are full of violence, perhaps that’s only a reflection of the dangers in our daily lives. When these stories become our realities, it can be easy to believe no one in the world is on our side. But that’s not the truth. The truth is that our attorneys have seen clients through circumstances like these before and been able to obtain meaningful restitution.
Handling serious motor vehicle accident cases
Have you ever driven past an accident, even a fender bender, and merely thought about the delays in your travel time? Auto accidents have become so ubiquitous and frequent that many people feel inured to the dangers and pain caused by these events. There is always a human cost to these accidents, either in time, money or physical suffering. Litigation can provide relief.
If you have been involved in any of the following accidents and have been injured as a result, a Fort Lauderdale auto accident attorney has the experience to advocate on your behalf:
- Drunk driving accidents
- Distracted driver accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Mass transit accidents
- Plane and helicopter accidents
- Boating accidents
- Cruise ship accidents
The tragedy of an auto accident goes far beyond the physical or material damage. They can entail serious bodily injury or death, and even if the destruction is limited to a vehicle, that alone can prohibit your ability to work. After seeking proper medical attention to assess for harm, your next step should be to contact Yeboah Law Group to make certain that those at fault are brought to justice.
Understanding personal injury protection
Personal injury protection (PIP) is mandatory in Florida and covers any person injured in any accident involving a vehicle, regardless of the fault of the situation, up to $10,000 in lost wages and medical bills. In theory this is helpful, but the reality is that with current medical costs, any serious injury would quickly use up the entire allotment. Additionally, simply getting insurance companies to promptly and fully pay out these funds can be a challenge. With the help of our well-prepared Fort Lauderdale PIP lawyers, these cases can be handled smoothly and promptly.
Protecting individuals and families who have suffered injuries due to inadequate medical care
The goal of any medical procedure or visit is to improve the patient’s health in some way, even if it’s only their knowledge about the realities of their health. When these visits or treatments fail to provide an efficacious result, often no one is at fault. Yet in other cases, the medical professional involved may have failed to perform their duties to the best of their ability, failed to exercise reasonable care, or been careless in a way that resulted in injury, suffering or death.
When a procedure or treatment is done without appropriate consideration or caution, and your family member is the patient, our attorneys will handle your legal matters while you and your family work on healing. If you or a loved one has suffered from medication errors, birth injuries, or other mistakes at the hands of a medical professional, our Fort Lauderdale medical malpractice attorneys are prepared to obtain the compensation you need for all of your injuries.
Protecting your elderly loved ones from nursing home abuse
Our elders have earned a safe and comfortable retirement where their physical and emotional needs are met, and the majority of eldercare facilities are extremely competent and caring. But if your relative has issues, whether medical, financial, physical, sexual, or otherwise, it may be a case of nursing home abuse. These types of realizations can be terribly painful for family members. Because of the subtlety of the signs of these types of issues, it’s vital that the legal team involved be familiar with the complexities of nursing home abuse law.
Defending against employment discrimination
Everyone applies for jobs, and everyone is rejected at some point in their career. However, the basis for those rejections matters. Florida and US laws prohibit rejecting candidates on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, physical ability, age, or sex. When those statutes are clearly violated, not only is it harmful to the potential employee who isn’t offered the job, it also reinforces societal norms based on outdated and malicious bias. Employment discrimination can extend beyond hiring, into job growth, performance reviews, and even areas as simplistic as scheduling and benefits. Legal help is available to hold people accountable for their outdated and illegal practices.
Furthermore, the workplace doesn’t have to be a perfectly serious place at all time, but when humor crosses the line into verbal or physical sexual harassment, employees have legal rights. Regardless of whom the person harassing you was, from the company owner to a patron, if their statements were inappropriate or prevented you from being able to complete your work, contact our South Florida employment discrimination attorneys to discuss your options for gaining restitution.
