Brandon Personal Injury Attorney

In addition to the large number of people injured or killed in Florida car accidents every year, there are significant numbers of people who suffer serious personal injury or wrongful death due to the negligence of another in other ways as well. For instance, Florida has by far the highest rate of accidental drownings for children under five, as well as the highest rate and number of drowning deaths for all children under 14. Hundreds of motorcyclists are killed in crashes every year, and thousands more are injured. Several thousand medical malpractice claims are filed every year as well, compensating individuals for serious injury or death inflicted in hospitals, doctor’s offices and other healthcare facilities. Let a Brandon personal injury attorney from Reed & Reed provide information and assistance today.

At Reed & Reed, we have decades of experience helping individuals and families in Brandon, the greater Tampa area and throughout the state of Florida recover compensation for all types of personal injury accidents suffered at the hands of negligent individuals, doctors, store owners and others. Below are descriptions of some of the types of personal injury matters we routinely handle.

Medical Malpractice

Brandon Medical Malpractice

We put our trust, our health, and our lives in the hands of doctors, nurses and hospitals. When healthcare professionals fail to treat us with the appropriate standards of care and competence, the results can be devastating. Florida law has a confusing and complicated scheme regarding the ability of medical malpractice victims to recover compensation for non-economic damages, which is compensation for things such as pain, suffering, and disfigurement. Medical malpractice cases often cause permanent conditions or require additional surgeries and treatment to repair. It is important to hire a personal injury attorney who knows the law and can help you get the maximum amount of compensation available.

Drowning Deaths

Brandon Drowning Deaths

Sadly, hundreds of small children and people of all ages die every year from accidental drowning. Even more tragic is the fact that many of these deaths could have been prevented if more care had been taken by the persons responsible. Owners of swimming pools at hotels and public parks can be liable for not providing adequate fencing around the pool or for failing to provide the proper safety and emergency equipment and signage. In some cases, pool owners may be liable for not providing lifeguards or other appropriate supervision.

Boating accidents can occur when the boat operator is reckless or merely untrained, inexperienced or unmatched for the craft being piloted. The owner of the boat can also be liable for letting an inexperienced or untrained individual drive the boat. This is especially true for employers or companies who have a duty to properly train and supervise their employees. Boat owners can also be liable for not providing life jackets and having other emergency safety gear on board. Let our Brandon personal injury attorneys assist you today.

Motorcycle Crashes

Brandon Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle riders who are involved in collisions with cars or trucks often suffer serious personal injury or wrongful death. Whether wearing a helmet and leathers or not, bikers are almost completely exposed to direct impact from another vehicle or a solid object when struck or forced off the road by a negligent, reckless or aggressive driver. Drivers and riders alike are required to obey traffic laws and operate their vehicles with reasonable care in light of the weather conditions and traffic around them.

Jurors may sometimes be biased against motorcyclists. We make sure the facts are known, and when another driver is at fault, we work to hold them responsible for the damages they have caused in cases of serious personal injury or wrongful death.

Slip & Fall Incidents

Brandon Slip & Fall Accidents

Restaurants, grocery stores, retail shops and other property owners have a duty to keep their premises in a safe condition for customers, employees, delivery persons and others who are invited or licensed to be on their property. This duty includes making routine inspections of the premises and either fixing any dangerous conditions or warning others about them within a reasonable time after they occur.

Slip and fall accidents can cause serious personal injury, including broken hips, ankles or wrists, concussions and back injuries. Holding property owners accountable for their negligence can be challenging, however, since it can be difficult to determine how long a condition (such as a food or drink spill) was present before the accident occurred and whether the owner had time to fix the situation. Brandon personal injury attorneys, Reed & Reed know how to properly investigate a slip and fall accident and establish the property owner’s liability when appropriate.

Dog Bites

Brandon Dog Bites

An owner of a dog is strictly liable under Florida law if the animal attacks or bites and injures someone. It doesn’t matter whether the attack happened in a public place or even on the owner’s own property, so long as the victim was lawfully on the property at the time. It also doesn’t matter whether the owner had any previous knowledge that the dog might be dangerous or have a tendency to bite someone. The only way for a dog owner to avoid liability is if the owner had prominently displayed on the property an easily readable sign that said “Bad Dog.” Even this sign will not let the owner off the hook if the victim was under six years old, or if the dog bite occurred because the owner was somehow otherwise negligent, such as by failing to maintain a fence or letting the dog run free in public. Our Brandon dog bite attorneys can provide more information about your case.

If the victim was somehow partially responsible for the attack, then any jury award would be reduced proportionately, but the victim can still recover compensation based on the owner’s percentage of negligence, contact our Brandon dog bite attorneys today.
