The loss of a loved one is an incredibly traumatic experience, and, often times, is made even worse when that loss is the result of the negligence, misconduct, or carelessness of another. Personal injury law encompasses wrongful death claims, which is a civil action by close relatives of a decedent who lost his or her life due to the negligence, misconduct, or recklessness of another person. Wrongful death can arise from a number of types of accidents including car, truck, or motorcycle accidents, drunk driving, defective products, medical malpractice, and much more. In these situations, surviving family members of the decedent may bring a wrongful death personal injury lawsuit against the person or organization responsible in order to receive compensation for their loss. The wrongful death lawyers at Abbott Law Group empathize with family members who have lost a loved one due to another person’s wrongful acts, and will fight to obtain the compensation for these families.

Personal injuries and wrongful deaths that occur in trucking accidents account for a large portion of injuries and deaths that occur in all types automobile accidents. Commercial trucks are much more dangerous than regular cars or motorcycles on the road because of their imposing size. A massive 18-wheeler, weighing 10,000 pounds, barreling down the interstate at 70 miles per hour can cause much more damage and has a much greater capacity to cause permanent injuries and fatalities if an accident occurs as opposed to a car, motorcycle, or even an SUV. When trucking companies fail to abide by the strict regulations put in place by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), or when some other form of negligence or recklessness is committed by a truck driver, and an accident occurs as a result, the trucking companies can be held legally liable for their or the driver’s misconduct. Truck drivers often commit the same forms of negligence as drivers of regular cars, like speeding and driving recklessly, despite the fact that the trucks they are driving are five times the size of regular cars. The attorneys of Abbott Law Group zealously represent those permanently injured or killed as a result of truck companies’ or truck drivers’ negligence in Duval County, St. Johns County, and the surrounding areas.

Medical malpractice personal injury claims arise when patients are injured or killed as a result of the negligent or reckless conduct of a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider. Healthcare providers owe a legal duty to patients, and any other persons being treated, of an average member of their profession, consistent with the provider’s specialized training and experience, acting under the same or similar circumstances. If a healthcare provider breaches this legal duty to a patient, he or she may be held liable in a court of law for any damages that resulted from the breach of duty. Medical malpractice lawsuits commonly involve medical errors, diagnostic errors or failure to diagnose, surgical errors, prescription malpractice, blood transfusion errors, and much more. While successful legal action for medical malpractice can help you secure compensation, it can also help send a strong message to healthcare professionals working in hospitals and emergency rooms across the country that preventable errors and substandard care will not go unpunished. If you believe you were injured or lost a loved one due to the medical malpractice of a healthcare provider, contact our Jacksonville personal injury lawyers today.
Studies estimate that nearly 10% of elderly residents experience nursing home abuse each year, and in addition, roughly 1,800 seniors die each year as a result of nursing home abuse. Because so many seniors retire to Florida, nursing home abuse occurs very frequently throughout the state, including in Jacksonville. Nursing home abuse lawsuits may be filed when elderly residents are physically, emotionally, or financially abused by employees or residents of the nursing home or assisted living facility in which they reside. Nursing home abuse can take the form of neglect by the living facility employees, sexual abuse, and financial exploitation by both the staff and other residents of the facility. The attorneys of Abbott Law Group firmly believe in defending those that cannot defend themselves, which is why they have dedicated themselves to protecting the rights of elders who have experienced personal injuries due to nursing home abuse. If you believe a loved one suffered a personal injury as a result of being physically or emotionally abused or neglected, contact the personal injury lawyers at Abbott Law Group to discuss your legal options today.
If you have been injured or lost a loved one on a construction site, it is vital that you contact a personal injury attorney to handle your personal injury or wrongful death claim. Construction accident lawsuits can be complex due to the possibility of having numerous parties liable, like the construction company, contractors or sub-contractors, architects, or even the manufacturers of defective work equipment. In addition, a construction accident claim can be based on a theory of personal injury, wrongful death, product liability, workers’ compensation, or all of these at the same time, which adds to the complexity of these matters. At Abbott Law Group, our attorneys have handled workplace injury cases, and in particular those involving accidents at construction sites, for over three decades in Jacksonville. This vast experience will come in handy when an injured party is attempting to recover compensation for medical expenses, physical therapy, lost wages, pain and suffering, and any other damages sustained in a construction accident.
