At Rosen and Rosen, we can support your claim by analyzing the accident and evidence to build the most effective case possible.
Are you one the 16,000 people injured annually in a motorcycle accident? Have you lost a loved one in a motorcycle-related fatality? Statistically speaking, cyclists are three times more likely to be killed in an auto accident than the driver of an automobile. While most motorcycle injuries involve the spinal cord and extremities, head injuries cause the majority of deaths. Manufacturers, wholesalers, and retailers can be held liable for defective or dangerous products when a product liability claim is successfully litigated.
Slip and Fall
Slips and falls or trips and falls that occur because of a hazard or defect on another person’s property are called “premises liability” claims. Regardless of how or why a person enters a property, owners have a responsibility to maintain their property and to warn people who enter the premises of any unsafe conditions. If property owners fail to notify of hazardous premises conditions, they may be held legally responsible or “liable” for injuries that occur on their property.

Construction work is one of the most dangerous jobs out there. Construction workers are more likely to be injured on the job than workers in any other industry, according to the federal government. While Florida workers’ compensation law bars you from suing your employer for negligence, there are exceptions. A civil law suit, unlike workers’ compensation, could provide additional money over and above what workers’ compensation will pay, including money for pain and suffering, lost wages, and lost health care benefits.
The majority of wrongful death suits involve vehicular accidents (automobile, ATV, motorcycle, tractor trailer, snowmobile, etc). Other types of wrongful death claims include public carriers (railroads, planes, buses and maritime disasters), defective products, medical malpractice, and pharmaceutical liability. Negligence is the common element in most wrongful death actions and an individual is generally negligent if their act or failure to act is unreasonable and results in another’s injury or death. Negligence can be the result of lack of attention, thoughtlessness, inadvertence, and mistakes.
When a product is brought to market, everyone in the “supply chain” has a duty to provide a reasonably safe product when used as intended. When an individual is injured or dies because of a hazardous or defective product, the manufacturers or suppliers can be held liable for failing in their duty – this is the foundation for product liability claims.
Almost 5 million people nationwide are attacked or bitten by dogs each year in the United States. According to the American Humane Association, more children suffer dog bite injuries than measles, mumps and whooping cough combined. Victims are entitled to compensation when another person’s negligence is proven. Individuals who provoke a dog are not eligible for compensation under the law; however, children of a certain age may be determined to be incapable of provocation.
