Areas of Law Description
Fazio, DiSalvo, Cannon, Abers, Podrecca, Fazio & Carroll offers services in the following practice areas:
- Personal Injury
Personal injury occurs when a person suffers physical or psychological harm as a result of another person’s actions. An injured party is entitled to compensation if he or she proves that the defendant breached the applicable duty of care owed to the injured party and caused the alleged injuries. The most common types of personal injury claims are auto accidents, work accidents, highway accidents, assault, slip and fall accidents, at-home injuries and holiday accidents. Fazio, DiSalvo, Cannon, Abers, Podrecca, Fazio & Carroll has the expertise required to handle complex causation issues and damage calculations, and it will fight to ensure that you are fairly compensated for your injuries.
- Slip and Fall Accidents
If you slipped and fell because of a slippery substance or another unsafe condition in a store, place of business, or on another piece of property, the property owner may be responsible for your damages under the theory of premises liability. Although property owners have to take reasonable care to avoid a trip and fall, the injured person may be at least partly at fault. In that case, courts generally apply comparative negligence principles to determine which party was more at fault. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, let the Fort Lauderdale slip and fall attorneys of Fazio, DiSalvo, Cannon, Abers, Podrecca, Fazio & Carroll take care of all of the details and work to ensure that you are compensated for any negligence of the property owner.
- Medical Malpractice
Medical negligence or malpractice occurs when a medical practitioner or health care provider fails to exercise the degree of care expected of a person of ordinary prudence in protecting a patient from risk of harm. A plaintiff must establish, by a preponderance of the evidence, that the defendant had a duty to the patient, that such duty was breached by failing to conform to the required standard of conduct, and that the negligent conduct caused the harm to the patient. Expert witnesses must be obtained to establish the wrongfulness of a medical practitioner’s negligence. Fazio, DiSalvo, Cannon, Abers, Podrecca, Fazio & Carroll employs a team of experts, such as registered nurses, paralegals, investigators, and various medical expert witnesses to thoroughly prepare your case and to assist you in obtaining the maximum amount of compensation due to you.
- Car Accidents
Ultimately, the person found at fault will pay for the repairs. Often, the quickest way to have the car repaired after a car accident is through the car owner’s own insurance. Regardless of fault, the owner’s insurance has to pay for repairs so there should not be a delay caused by investigators. The owner’s insurer will contact the mechanic or the owner can drive his car to the insurer’s office for an appraisal of the damage. Large insurance companies often have inspection locations for obtaining quick repair estimates. The owner’s insurance is called collision coverage and may include a $500 or $1,000 deductible which often obligates the car owner to pay that amount of the repairs. The deductible will likely be recovered later on from the person at fault or that person’s insurer.
- Product Liability
It is more common than most people think to suffer a personal injury due products which are defected. Laws dealing with design, manufacturing, and marketing defects can be confusing. By working with a product liability lawyer you will get assistance in proving there was some form of negligence or breach of warranty. Talk to a product liability lawyer if you feel you have suffered injury due to a defected product, are exposed to an unsafe product or feel the warranty is misleading or dangerous and the seller was aware of this fact.
- Wrongful Death
Wrongful death could be the most heartbreaking experience you and your loved ones will ever have to face. Nothing can get the life of your loved one back and we realize how serious this issue is to you. By working with a wrongful death attorney you will get the assistance you need to recover compensation on behalf of you loved one's survivors. If you are a representative of a person you have lost to a wrongful death it is important to speak with an attorney to understand wrongful death law and to file a claim for monetary damages as soon as you can.
- Civil Law
Civil law is much different from criminal law and understanding codes and common laws is no easy task. Under civil law your attorney can request documents and visit places that may help you build a stronger case. Working with a firm who has become experienced with the ins and outs of civil trial practice is indispensable to building a strong case. By allowing a civil trial lawyer to assist you in your case, you are enabling yourself to maximize your compensation for your loss.
