Automobile accidents are all too frequent. Anyone who spends a regular amount of time commuting to work or driving to accomplish regular errands is statistically going to be involved in a vehicular incident eventually.
A fender-bender in a parking lot is often a small inconvenience handled by insurance coverage, but a high-speed crash with a tractor trailer truck, bike or motorcycle, or pedestrian can be life-altering and even deadly. Insurance often does not cover the full cost of such losses. Accidents that involve uninsured motorists or Lyft or Uber rideshare drivers can also complicate your access to compensation. Accidents caused by another’s negligence or recklessness, like distracted driving or drunk driving likely require a veteran lawyer with personal injury and auto accident experience.
The personal injury attorneys at Osborne & Francis have an extensive history of successfully representing vehicular accident cases of all kinds. Contact us to schedule a free, confidential consultation if you’ve suffered a vehicle-involved injury and need professional advice and representation.
Premises liability laws require property owners to ensure their property is safe and accessible for you when you visit. Slip-and-fall accidents are all too common and can cause significant injuries. Shopping cart injuries can endanger children. Assaults or robberies committed on premises that fail to provide adequate security or thorough employee background checks are also matters of the law.
Whether you’ve been injured at a commercial business like a grocery store, or at a private home or public event (including swimming pool accidents), you may be able to recover financial losses and punitive (aka “punishment”) damages that are charged to the negligent owner.
An injury that causes or contributes to a person’s untimely death is considered wrongful death under the law. The death of a loved one as the result of negligence is a particularly traumatic experience. A legal treatment of such an event attempts to compensate for the loss of companionship, the anguish experienced by surviving family members, and the loss of economic support (especially in cases where the deceased was the sole or main breadwinner for a household).
We at Osborne & Francis work diligently to guide our clients through the legal system with compassion and respect after the death of a loved one. Call us at (561) 293-2600 to ensure that your case is handled properly and swiftly within all relevant legal timelines.
