Types of Apopka Personal Injury Cases Our Firm Takes On
After an injury, you may be facing medical bills, doctor visits, and lost time at work. You may even find daily tasks to be a challenge. During this time, you should be focused on getting better, not worrying about how you will pay the bills.
Our team will take over the legal process and handle gathering evidence (police reports, witness statements, photos, and videos, etc.), filing paperwork, and even communication with third parties, like insurance companies. If you were hurt in any of the following types of accidents, let us help you pursue the compensation you deserve.
Motor vehicle collisions cause thousands of accidents in our state every year. We’re here to assist you if you sustain injuries in a:
- Head-on collision
- Rear-end collision
- Side-impact collision
- Rollover accident
We understand the most common causes for vehicle collisions. In many cases, other drivers cause these accidents by breaking the rules of the road. They may speed, swerve around, tailgate other drivers, or perform other dangerous actions.
Drivers sometimes make dangerous decisions because they’re tired, under the influence of alcohol, or distracted by electronic devices. We provide assistance if you were in a truck accident, bus accident, or other public transportation accident.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall injuries often lead to premises liability claims in Apopka. You may slip on a number of different hazards while visiting someone else’s property. You may slip on:
- Spilled water or another liquid left on the floor
- Ice or snow on an outdoor walkway
- Trash or debris left in a walkway
- Uneven or cracked flooring
These accidents often occur in improperly lit areas, making it harder for you to notice and avoid hazards. Reach out to a member of our team if you slipped on someone else’s property and sustained an injury.
Swimming Pool Injury
Swimming pools represent a great way to cool off during the summer months. However, property owners have a responsibility to ensure their pools are safe for any visitors to their property. In some cases, this may mean posting warning signs or erecting a fence around the pool.
Workplace accidents lead to many injuries every year in Apopka. Individuals in any career may end up getting hurt on the job, though some industries, like construction, have higher injury rates. We’re ready to step in if you:
- Got struck by a falling object
- Got crushed or hurt by heavy machinery
- Experienced electrocution
- Were exposed to dangerous chemicals on the job
We can help you understand the workers’ compensation insurance system in Apopka and your options to secure compensation after a jobsite injury.
Defective Product Claims
Sometimes, companies produce defective products. They have a responsibility to recall these products quickly, before they cause injuries. Sometimes, they fail in this duty and individuals get hurt. You can reach out to us for help taking on large companies in Apopka.
We go to doctors to get care for illnesses and injuries. Unfortunately, some medical professionals fail to uphold their duty of care. They end up causing harm instead of helping if they:
- Fail to make a timely diagnosis
- Misdiagnose their patients
- Prescribe the wrong kind or amount of medication
- Make a mistake during a medical procedure
Our team understands how to handle medical malpractice claims for you and members of your family. Reach out to us today to learn more about your options.

Determining Fault in an Apopka Personal Injury Case
In personal injury cases, the first step is often to determine who is at fault for your injuries. To establish who can be held liable for your damages, we look to prove the four aspects of fault:
- Did the party have a duty of care?To be held liable, the party must have had a responsibility to provide or create a relatively safe environment. For example, an Apopka driver has the duty not to create an unsafe environment for other drivers.
- Did the party breach that duty of care?If, for example, a driver was speeding, they breached the duty of care by creating an unsafe environment.
- Did the breach cause an accident?Speeding alone is not grounds for a personal injury case. However, if excessive speed caused an accident, they would meet this third factor.
- Did the accident cause damages?If an accident occurred, but did not result in injuries or property damage, a personal injury claim could not be filed.
Establishing fault is the duty of your Apopka personal injury attorney. While the examples above were cut and dry, this is not always the case. We may pursue damages from third parties, such as an employer who allowed a known reckless driver to take a position as a bus driver.
We suggest working with a personal injury team who can investigate every detail of your case to determine who is at fault. We may uncover other insurance policies or third parties who should be held liable for their negligence.
