Drivers have an obligation to use reasonable care when they drive their cars throughout the state of Florida. There's no exception if the person is a tourist visiting Miami. If somebody ran a red light, made an illegal U-turn, rear ended you, or otherwise caused a car accident which hurt you, you may be entitled to compensation for the accident. Under Florida's no-fault law, your own insurance company may pay up to $10,000 towards your medical expenses and lost wages. The insurance company of the person who caused the car accident should pay for the expenses that your insurance company did not pay, as well as possibly pain and suffering, among other things. Our Florida Insurance Claims Attorneys help guide you through the car accident claim process and can fight to get you the compensation you deserve.Life Insurance Claims
Tens of millions of Americans buy life insurance each year to protect their families or assets in the event that they pass away. Too often, unfortunately, life insurance companies will look for any excuse not to pay a valid life insurance claim. Under Florida law, life insurance companies may try to deny a life insurance claim if the insured dies within two years of taking out the life insurance policy. Life insurance companies may deny life insurance claims because of a material misrepresentation, an exclusion to the policy, nonpayment of premiums, or may try to hold up payment because they claim they are investigating something or because there are multiple people making a claim to the same life insurance policy which causes them to file an interpleader lawsuit. Our Florida Insurance Claims Attorneys have handled hundreds of life insurance lawsuits and claims, and we have recovered millions of dollars in life insurance benefits for our clients. Some life insurance claims stem from nursing home death from coronavirus, and our Nursing home attorneys serving Miami can assist with those claims as well.Product Liability Claims
When a company puts a product in the market, they have a legal obligation to make sure that the product is reasonably safe. If you get hurt by a product, you may be entitled to a monetary damage award to compensate you for your injuries, including medical bills and pain and suffering. Under product liability law, nearly every company involved in the chain of commerce may be responsible for your injuries under what is called strict liability. This means that if you were using the product as directed and still got hurt because the product was defective, every company from the designer, manufacturer, and distribution company that sold you the product may be legally responsible to pay for any injury or damage caused by the defective product. Product liability includes defective child products, vehicle manufacturing defects, defective consumer products, and dangerous medical devices and medications which caused unintended side effects. Our Florida Insurance Claims Attorneys can file a product liability lawsuit if you were hurt by a defective product.Pressure Cooker Injuries
Pressure cookers are intended to cook food quickly while holding in more nutrients than traditional cooking methods. Unfortunately, many electric pressure cookers currently on the market have manufacturing or design defects which could cause the electric pressure cooker to explode while still under pressure. Our law firm has filed numerous pressure cooker lawsuits throughout the United States, and attorney Jason Turchin was named lead counsel in the consolidated federal pressure cooker lawsuit called IN RE: Tristar Pressure Cooker Litigation. Several pressure cooker companies market that their pressure cookers cannot open up while still pressurized and have multiple safety features to protect the customer. Unfortunately, many pressure cookers can still fail. A recent report found that one pressure cooker company was well aware that a number of their pressure cookers could fail, yet they still kept the product on the market and did not issue a pressure cooker recall.Vehicle Defects
Driving has become a required task from many Americans, whether driving to and from work or for leisure, or while on vacation in Miami. Unfortunately, over the years there have been many car defects which hurt or killed people throughout the United States. These include airbag shrapnel injury and death claims, tire tread separation, gas tank explosions, car doors which may crush someone, seat back failures and more. Often, vehicle defects are considered based on whether there was a manufacturing defect, where there was an issue during the production of the vehicle which caused it to be more dangerous like using the wrong part or allowing moisture to get into the chemical that inflates the airbag. Design defects may be found where the vehicle was defectively designed and put a greater risk of death or serious bodily injury to the customer. Improper instruction may be more prevalent as technology continues to advance in automotive products where the systems become so complex that the everyday user may not be fully aware of how to use the new features of the vehicle. This could lead to a greater risk of injury or wrongful death. The airbag lawyers at the Law Offices of Jason Turchin filed one of the first airbag shrapnel lawsuits against Honda and Takata. Takata ultimately recalled over 80 million airbag systems and was one of the largest consumer recalls in United States history.Nursing Home Negligence
Nursing home residents have a right to be free from abuse and neglect. When a nursing home causes a patient or resident to get bedsores because of a lack of maintenance or care, or otherwise contributes to their death because of nursing home negligence in Miami, the nursing home may be found legally negligent and may be required to pay for all of the pain and suffering and medical expenses as a result of their neglect. For example, our attorney can file a lawsuit if the nursing home was aware of the possibility that its resident could contract coronavirus, COVID-19, or another type of virus or bacteria from another visitor or staff member, and the nursing home may be negligent in failing to keep the resident safe. A nursing home negligence lawsuit in Miami could be based on personal injury or wrongful death. Generally, the patient or the patient's family may only have up to two years to file a nursing home lawsuit in Miami. Our Miami nursing home lawyers can help explain your rights to see if you can bring a nursing home claim.Premises Liability
When you get hurt on someone else's property, it is generally referred to as premises liability. A premises liability claim could include a slip and fall, trip and fall, general negligence, food poisoning, bedbug bites, dog bite, theme park ride injury, among other injuries which could occur on someone else's property. Business owners have a general legal duty to use reasonable care to protect invitees from harm. Florida law typically allows someone injured on someone else's property to file a premises liability lawsuit within four years from the date of injury, or two years from the date of a wrongful death. If you want to know what you should do if you fell on someone else's property, the best advice is to speak with the premises liability lawyer as soon as possible who could help secure the proper evidence to help when your case. You could be entitled to a monetary award for pain and suffering, medical expenses and more.Crime Victim's Rights
Crime victims generally have rights separate from any potential criminal case. Property owners generally have a duty to provide adequate security to protect guests from foreseeable harm. These include cases of murder, drunk driving, child molestation, and sexual assault or rape. If someone is shot and killed in an apartment complex in Miami, the landlord may have had a duty to provide reasonable security. If security was present, the apartment had access control, or background checks were done on tenants on the property, for example, it may be possible that the crime could've been prevented. Our lawyers have filed numerous negligent security lawsuits in Miami for shootings in apartment complexes and other properties. In a negligent security lawsuit in Miami, the victim or the victim's family may be entitled to a money award for pain and suffering and medical expenses, among other damages.Dangerous Prescription Drugs and Medication
Drug companies have a responsibility to adequately test their medication prior to releasing it to the public for use. They should adequately warn of risks which they knew about or should've known about so the public can make a more informed decision when deciding whether or not to consume the prescription drug or over-the-counter medication. Without adequate warnings, many patients over the years have suffered from heart attacks, stroke, coma, serious bodily injury and death which resulted in dangerous drug lawsuits and class actions.Pharmacy Errors
Pharmacies like CVS, Walgreens, Publix and Walmart have a duty to be responsible when filling a medication. Thousands of pharmacy errors occur each year when a pharmacist or pharmacy technician accidentally gives a customer the wrong medication or incorrect dosage. These drug errors result in many hospitalizations and serious bodily injury. If you were injured because of a pharmacist's negligence, you could be entitled to money for pain and suffering and medical expenses. You could make a Florida pharmacy error claim for any injury or wrongful death caused by the negligence of a pharmacist. There have been thousands of negligent prescription error claims in Florida.Litigation Co-Counsel
Lawyers around the country may need litigation counsel in Florida to help with a client injured in Florida or where the company who caused the injury is based in Florida. As co-counsel, our lawyers work with other lawyers around the United States to represent clients in Florida even where the person lives outside of the state. Our attorneys can also work as Florida class action attorneys to assist class action lawyers around the United States who wish to bring a class action in Florida. Some attorneys need a Florida litigation attorney to refer a personal injury case to if the referring attorney only handles pre-litigation cases. A Nursing home attorney in Miami can also co-counsel with attorneys in other states who represent the Estate or family whose loved one died or was injured in Miami.Cruise Ship Negligence
Cruising can be a lot of fun, but can also be extremely dangerous during a major virus pandemic. Cruise lines like Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, Disney Cruise Lines and Norwegian (NCL) generally have an obligation to use reasonable care to provide for the safety of their passengers. A cruise passenger expects to be safe from a slip and fall, negligence from a crewmember, eat food that has been properly prepared so they don't get food poisoning or bite into a foreign object, or experienced medical negligence which could lead to catastrophic injuries or death on a cruise ship. Cruise passengers should also not contract COVID-19 while on a cruise if the cruise knew about the virus and continued to sail, subjecting passengers to great harm.
