Let Fenderson Law Firm champion your rights.
Serious injuries are costly. Personal injury cases involve physical and emotional suffering, plus financial loss. Statistics compiled by the insurance industry reveal people who retain an attorney in wrongful death and personal injury claims make out significantly better than those who do not.
Below are the areas of personal law in which Fenderson Law Firm concentrates:
Motor vehicle accidents are a daily occurrence and Florida’s average is higher than the national average. Accidents may cause major injuries to people and property—and they may even result in death. Despite Florida’s no-fault coverage, you may have a claim. You will need legal representation to make that determination and resolve all the legal issues involved.
The complexity of trucking accidents and the often catastrophic resulting injuries present special legal challenges. Did you know that a truck or tractor-trailer wreck that involves a motor carrier regulated by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) has built-in protection for an injured party? You cannot discover this without filing a suit with the help of an experienced attorney.
Dog bites can result in serious injury. Dog bite laws are a combination of city, county, and state laws or ordinances. Because these laws vary, the location of where the incident took place is critical to your ability to recover damages. The owner of the animal is usually liable for damages, but any negligence on the part of the injured person is taken into account. An experienced attorney is required to make the system work for the injured party.
Fenderson Law Firm knows the standards that private and commercial property owners must abide by to protect visitors from injury. We know how to hold owners accountable when they fail to maintain those standards. Our attorneys and staff will fully investigate your injury, work closely with your medical experts, and remain dedicated to the best possible outcome of your case. Slip and fall accidents come under premises liability law and usually involve slippery sidewalks, floors, or stairs.
There area of premises liability is more than just slip and fall accidents. Premise liability can include faulty escalators or elevators, broken curbs, improper seating, and any other negligent property maintenance. In some instances, dog bites are also included. The best assessment of a case, however, requires an experienced attorney. Some of the issues taken into consideration are the status of the injured party or plaintiff, the possession of the premises and whether the state laws favor the premise owner.
A wrongful death occurs when a person dies because of a negligent or reckless act, or an intentional attack by another person. Any personal injury that results in a death can be the basis of a wrongful death suit. Compensation may include:
- Medical expenses
- Funeral and burial expenses
- Lost and future earnings
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering
