The lawyers at Zipris LaValle represent individuals and their families who have been seriously injured or killed as a result of the negligence, carelessness, or recklessness of others. Personal injuries not only cause physical pain, but often emotional and financial hardship through lost wages, medical bills, and stress placed upon families and loved ones.
At Zipris LaValle we understand that when an accident happens, lives are forever changed. Simple pleasures become chores. Daily routines are disrupted. Economic losses to the family can be devastating — whether caused by an automobile accident, defective product, or other negligent, careless, or reckless conduct. Our highly skilled attorneys provide effective, aggressive investigation and representation, freeing you up to move on with your life.
In Florida, you must prove that you have been injured by another party’s careless or reckless actions to win a personal injury claim. Personal injury victims can file one of several types of personal injury suits.
Personal injury and wrongful death cases are technical and can be complex. The lawyers at Zipris LaValle have experience before administrative boards and trial courts. We have prevailed on claims for the most serious personal injuries.
Personal injury and wrongful death cases are always emotional. While you are upset or grieving, you should not make any major decisions that may limit any future recoveries without consulting an attorney. You should not enter into any settlement, sign any release or accept any money in exchange for releasing an individual, corporation, or insurance company from liability without first knowing what insurance coverage or other redress may be available to you and your family.
Zipris LaValle can help you decide your best course of action and develop an effective legal strategy for demonstrating your claim.
Our attorneys handle a wide variety of personal injury and wrongful death cases, including those involving:
- Bicycle accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Medical malpractice (including malpractice by doctors, nurses, and other health professionals)
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Premises liability (including a slip and fall accident and the failure to warn of a danger on the premises)
- Product liability (including defects in the manufacture or design of a product and the failure to warn of a product danger)
Because a statute of limitations applies to these cases, victims have a limited time frame in which to file their case. If you feel you have a personal injury or wrongful death case, it is vital that you act immediately to protect your rights.
