To begin, if you are in a car accident that causes bodily harm, your bills can be very overwhelming. Most people cannot afford to pay money out of pocket for their own medical treatment. Costs can include medical bills, property damage bills, time lost from work and more. However, you may be liable for damages depending on the details of the case. For this reason, Florida state law requires ALL drivers to have auto insurance. This law is in effect to protect against liability. In the event of a crash, you want to be covered for property damages and bodily injuries. Bodily injury coverage is particularly important. Especially if you cause the accident that causes someone else harm.
Moreover, bodily injury liability insurance protects you. In the event a claim is brought on by someone who suffers from injuries or even death due to your negligence, you are protected. Even if you are not at fault for the accident. You could still be responsible for bills and costs. Also, compensation could account for more permanent injuries, loss of consortium, and travel costs for medical care. Make sure your insurance policy includes bodily injury coverage. Therefore, you will not have to pay for all of these costs alone.

Let Us Put Our Experience & Reputation to Work For You
The Dawson Law Firm team tries to go above & beyond for those interested in simply getting the facts straight about their potential case. This is why we’ve put together some of the most common frequently asked questions we come across.
We devote all of our resources, skills, and experience in handling select cases involving medical malpractice or wrongful death cases.
For this reason, the Dawson Law Firm represents Plaintiffs throughout Florida in all types of accident cases. From car crashes to slip and falls, they do it all! Also, most personal injury claims will involve an insurance company, at some level. “Insurance companies actually have an ethical duty to act in the insured’s best interest.” States the Florida Administrative Code that governs the behavior of insurance company adjustors state this rule.
Next, it is important to understand the complications of suing an insurance company. Due to failure to follow the rules for personal injury claims, suits occur in many different ways. The insurance company can wrongfully deny a part (or all) of a personal injury claim. It may unfairly deny a personal injury claim. It may improperly undervalue a personal injury claim. Therefore, this conduct maybe considered “bad faith.” In some scenarios, the offending company can be sued directly for its “bad faith” behavior.
In order to convince a court that they should be awarded damages, an injury victim (the plaintiff) must prove that the person or entity they are suing (the defendant) did something negligent to cause their injury. A court might find that a defendant was negligent in a variety of circumstances, including, but not limited to:
Bicycle Accidents– involving a car, truck or SUV and a bicycle can cause particularly serious injuries due to the lack of protection that a bicycle offers its operator.
Boat Accidents– injuries and deaths from boating and watersport accidents are often caused by the negligent and careless actions on the part of boat operators.
Car Accidents– When you experience serious injuries in a crash caused by another driver, you face a future of great uncertainty. In addition to your painful injuries, you feel stress regarding your finances due to time away from work.
Dog Bites– In the United States, nearly half of all households own at least one dog. Currently in Florida, a dog owner may be strictly liable for injuries caused by his/her dog. This is only the case when an owner knew or should have known that the dog had vicious propensities. This is why it is imperative to seek an experienced attorney’s expertise.
Medical Malpractice– Medical malpractice occurs when a hospital, doctor, or other health care professional, through a negligent act or omission, causes an injury to a patient. The negligence might be the result of errors in diagnosis, treatment, aftercare, or health management.
Medication Lawsuit– When a patient suffers an injury as a result of a medication error, they may have the right to file a medical malpractice lawsuit; however, not every complication or medical mistake warrants legal action. Negligence must be directly responsible for the injury for a malpractice claim to be valid.
Motorcycle Accident Cases– When a motorcycle rider has an accident, the rider and passenger’s injuries can be catastrophic. An accident between two cars might be labeled as a “fender bender” with no injuries to the occupants, but rarely does the rider of a motorcycle escape without a hospital trip for treatment of fractured bones lacerations, or even more severe injuries.
Nursing Home Abuse– The United States has thousands of long-term care facilities serving millions of residents. Neglect and injuries are consistent and a growing problem. If you believe a loved one is being abused or neglected in a nursing home, skilled living facility, or residential living home report the mistreatment as soon as possible.
Slip and Falls– Premises liability defines the concept that a person or entity is responsible for maintaining all sidewalks, hand railings, stairs, parking lots, floors, and areas on a property. Unsafe and defective conditions arise when a person or entity is negligent. Failing to adequately maintain a property is an example of negligence.
Truck Accidents– Commercial trucking crashes typically lead to much more severe injuries than common car wrecks and in many cases, can even result in wrongful death. Cases involving commercial motor vehicles and trucking companies are extraordinarily complex.
Ride-Share Accidents– It doesn’t matter if you’re the passenger, the driver, or the other motor vehicle involved in an accident involving a ridesharing company like Uber or Lyft, there are certain rights and concerns that are essential to the insurance and claims process.
We devote all of our resources, skills, and experience in handling select cases involving medical malpractice or wrongful death cases. Our clients have suffered permanent, life-changing injuries, such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, closed head injuries, amputation injuries, severe burns, birth injuries, or injuries from a hospital and medical malpractice.
For many years, people injured through no fault of their own and the families of those who have been injured in tragic, avoidable accidents because of someone else’s carelessness have come to Dawson Law Firm because we know how to recover compensation and hold the negligent accountable. Some of the most common injuries of personal injury are:
Wrongful Death– can be defined as a death caused by the negligent, willful, or wrongful act, neglect, omission, or default of another.
Traumatic Brain Injury– The force of an accident can cause the brain to collide against the internal hard bone of the skull. Due to when a moving head comes to a quick stop, the brain continues in its movement. Therefore, forcing it to strike the interior of the skull.
Soft Tissue Injuries– Sprains, strains, bruising, and other damage to muscles, tendons, and ligaments.
Whiplash– Whiplash is the stretching of head and neck muscles and ligaments in reaction to the sudden movement of a collision.
Chest Injuries– Chest injuries during car accidents most often take the form of contusions or bruises, although serious injuries are also possible. Severe chest injuries include broken ribs and injury to internal organs.
Arm & Leg Injuries– Injuries to the extremities are caused by the same forces that cause head injuries: unnatural sudden direction changes or stops result in the involuntary motion of arms and legs, which often causes injuries to them.
Scrapes and Cuts– In a car collision any loose objects inside the car immediately become projectiles thrown about the car’s interior. This includes cell phones, coffee mugs, eyeglasses, purses, books, dash-mounted GPS systems, etc.
Herniated Disk– Sometimes called a slipped disk or a ruptured disk, a herniated disk occurs when some of the nucleus pushes out through a tear in the annulus. It can result in pain, numbness or weakness in an arm or leg. If the herniation occurs in the neck it can cause headaches.
Emotional Distress– Serious accidents can leave emotional scars on those who suffered serious injuries as well as those who witnessed them.
