Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents can be life changing events, often resulting in serious or fatal injuries. Navigating Florida insurance law can be a complex and confusing process when it comes to car accident cases. Whether you’ve been injured in a car accident, a truck collision, or a motorcycle crash, an experienced auto accident attorney at the Law Offices of Donoghue & Associates can discuss your options with you and help you choose the best course of action.
Boating and other recreational water sports are popular in Brevard County’s Space Coast, but they can quickly lead to severe or life-threatening injuries if not handled properly. Watercraft accidents can happen for many different reasons, including but not limited to:
- The boat operator’s negligence (including, for example, driving at an unsafe speed or failing to be properly trained in watercraft rules and safety); and
- Boating under the influence of alcohol or other intoxicant.
Keep in mind that your claim will depend on whether you were a guest on the boat where you sustained an injury or an employee. Whether you’re filing a lawsuit against the driver of a boat, or the designer or manufacturer of a watercraft, a Florida watercraft accident lawyer can help. We also help families who have lost loved ones in drowning accidents.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Under Florida law, property owners have a duty to maintain their premises in a safe condition for customers, guests, and other people who are lawfully on their property. When a property owner knows of a risk and fails to correct it, or should have known of a serious risk that results in a slip and fall accident, that property owner can be held liable for damages.
For instance, property owners must clean up spills in a timely manner to prevent someone from slipping and falling, and they must keep premises clear of tripping hazards to prevent a slip, trip, and fall. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, you may be able to file a premises liability claim. Contact one of the experienced Melbourne premises liability lawyers at the Law Offices of Donoghue & Associates today.
Defective Airbags and Products
The lawyers at Donoghue and Associates have handled many cases involving product defects, including airbags and tires. If a consumer is injured by a defective product, that individual or his family may be able to file a product liability claim. Generally speaking, product liability claims fall into three different categories:
- Defective design: when a product has a defect in its very design (before even reaching the stage of manufacture);
- Defective manufacture: when a product has a defect that occurred during its manufacture;
- Defective marketing, or failure to warn: when a product has been marketed in a way that’s defective or fails to warn a customer of potential hazards.
If you have been injured by a defective product, a Florida product liability lawyer at the Law Offices of Donoghue & Associates can discuss your case with you at (321) 725-1499 or toll free at (888) 366-6488.
Medical Malpractice claims can be some of the most serious, and difficult, personal injury cases. If a physician, or other health care provider, breaches the prevailing standard of care which would be rendered by a reasonably prudent similar health care provider, and this negligent care causes injury or death of a patient, you may have grounds to initiate a claim for medical malpractice.
Given the complexity of Medical Malpractice law and the short statute of limitations on such actions it is essential to call Donoghue & Associates immediately if you or a loved one has been the victim of a serious Medical Malpractice incident. Contact the experienced legal team at the Law Offices of Donoghue & Associates today in the Brevard County area at (321) 725-1499 or toll free at (888) 366-6488.
If you’ve been injured at your workplace or elsewhere in the course of the duties of your employment, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Florida law requires employers to carry workers’ compensation coverage in the event that a worker sustains a serious illness or injury in the course of her employment. In order to be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, you must take several steps, including reporting your injury or illness to your employer immediately.
If you have been denied workers’ compensation benefits, you should discuss your case with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer here at the Law Offices of Donoghue & Associates. We can help you to file a Petition for Benefits, and we will advocate for your right to be compensated for your injuries.
Insurance claim disputes can be frustrating and complicated. When you pay your insurance premiums, you expect that you’ll be covered. However, insurance companies wrongfully deny claims on a regular basis. Remember, your insurance company isn’t on your side. It’s in an insurance company’s best interest to pay out as little as possible. As such, you’ll need an experienced advocate on your side if your company refuses your entitlement to benefits.
