Personal Injury Attorneys in Tampa, Florida
If you’ve sustained injuries in an accident that was caused by no fault of your own call the Tampa personal injury attorneys at Rebein Law today for reliable legal aid.
More than 60,000 serious injuries requiring hospitalization occur each year in Florida. From slip-and-fall incidents and car accidents to dog bites and scooter collisions, injuries that occur due to the negligence of another person or as a result of a product malfunction can leave victims and their families in a tough position.
If you’ve sustained injuries in one of these accidents, you may have to deal with stressful insurance negotiations, long-term physical issues, and expensive hospital bills. However, you and your family may be eligible to claim financial compensation for your injuries and losses.
Rebein Law is a trusted Florida law firm dedicated to protecting and defending the rights of injury victims and their families. Our attorneys in Tampa understand the many difficulties victims may face after sustaining injuries as a result of accidents beyond their control, including:
Motor vehicle accidents – Arguably the most common cause of personal injury, motor vehicle accidents are an all-too-common occurrence in Florida. According to reports released by the Florida Department of Highway Safety, nearly 400,000 traffic accidents occur each year in the Sunshine State.
Since there are hundreds of thousands of motor vehicle crashes that occur in Florida annually, the victims of these accidents sustain tens of thousands of injuries, many of them serious and sometimes fatal.
Truck accidents –Often resulting in catastrophic injuries for those involved, commercial truck accidents caused by 18-wheelers leave victims and their families dealing with tragic, long-term physical issues, job loss, and even death.
According to data released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a person is killed or seriously injured in an accident caused by semi-trucks, also known as big rigs, every 15 minutes. Around 500,000 trucking accidents occur each year countrywide, with about 5,000 of these incidents resulting in death annually.
Pedestrian accidents – Florida, already considered the most dangerous state for pedestrians in the United States, has seven of the 10 deadliest metro areas for walkers. In fact, the Tampa area took the eighth spot according to a report from the advocacy group Smart Growth America.
Commercial vehicle accidents – Approximately 5,000 people were killed in large truck crashes in the United States last year, and nearly 67% of those deaths were the occupants of cars and other passenger vehicles involved in these wrecks. When it comes to commercial vehicle accidents caused by large trucks, buses, box trucks, and other oversized vehicles contracted to large companies, victims and their families may pay a steep price.
From serious physical injuries and emotional trauma to job loss and even death, victims who are involved in commercial vehicle accidents suffer catastrophic consequences in the aftermath. That’s why it’s important for victims and their families to contact a lawyer after a commercial vehicle or truck accident as soon as possible.
Motorcycle accidents – The number of motorcycle accidents has more than doubled in the state of Florida since the 1990s. One in seven motor vehicle deaths in the United States occur on a motorcycle and a motorcycle rider is 16 times more likely to be killed in a motor vehicle crash than an operator of a car, due at least in part to the lack of protection from other vehicles.
Bicycle accidents – Bicycle accidents in Florida are unfortunately common. In 2018, there were nearly 7,000 bicycle crashes in Florida, resulting in almost 150 deaths and more than 6,000 injuries.
Drowning accidents – Due to the hot and humid Florida climate, many Tampa homeowners and renters have pools. In fact, drowning deaths in Florida are up 70% this year compared to 2020 and 2019. Drowning accidents happen all too frequently across the state.
Premises liability accidents – Property owners may be considered liable for an accident on their property if the owner was aware that dangerous conditions existed yet neglected to correct the condition. For example, an apartment building owner is responsible to maintain the sidewalks in their development to ensure the safety of residents and guests. If the concrete sidewalk is cracked, causing a slip-and-fall accident, the property owner may be liable if they were aware of the issue and did not rectify the problem.
If you’ve sustained injuries on another person’s property and that injury occurred due to the property owner’s negligence, contact a Florida premises liability lawyer right away to review the facts of your case.
Wrongful death incidents – Suffering the death of a loved one is devastating, no matter the cause. From vehicle crashes to drowning incidents, these accidents leave families struggling to cope with medical bills, funeral expenses, and severe emotional trauma.
Thankfully, Florida tort law allows the families of deceased victims to seek justice and financial compensation through a wrongful death claim. Though financial compensation can never fully address the void that the death of a loved one creates, it can help ease the burden associated with a family’s sudden loss.
