Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, and Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury Lawyer

Boca Raton Personal Injury Lawyer Protecting the Rights of Victims

For over two decades, the Hollander Law Firm has provided individualized attention to accident victims and their families. We are dedicated to fighting for the rights of people who have been seriously injured or killed throughout South Florida due to the reckless actions or negligence of others. Injury attorney Gregg Hollander brings 28 years of experience to his legal representation of South Florida residents and others who are seeking compensation from those who have harmed them. “Injury Representation You Deserve Because Each Case Is Personal” is not just a motto, it is the founding principle which guides all that we do on behalf of our clients. Based in Boca Raton, with satellite offices in West Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale, the Hollander Law Firm combines the personal attention of a small firm with all of the resources of a larger firm. Our focus is firmly on pursuing the maximum compensation possible for our clients, and we pride ourselves on candid communication throughout the process. With many firms, client intake is handled by a secretary, paralegal, or telephone operators. The goal of these firms is often to get as many cases as possible, which can make providing individualized attention by the attorneys difficult. This is not the strategy with our firm.

As a personal injury lawyer serving Boca Raton and surrounding cities, Firm Founder Gregg Hollander personally reviews and selects each case the firm handles. We have a selective approach that allows our firm to aggressively pursue each case accepted, and to offer each client the full attention that they deserve. We accept only the cases where we believe we can make a meaningful difference to injured clients. Once a case is accepted, we will assemble a team of investigators, professionals, and medical and legal experts as required who are specifically chosen based upon the needs of a client’s case. Then, with all of the financial and legal resources at our disposal, we will thoroughly investigate the case, determine the at–fault parties and the insurance coverage available from all sources, and aggressively pursue the compensation deserved.

Personal Injury

Most personal injury lawsuits are brought under a theory of negligence. In order to prevail in a lawsuit under the theory of negligence, A plaintiff will need to prove: a duty recognized by law which requires the defendant(s) to conform to a certain standard of conduct for the protection of others, including the plaintiff; the defendant breached that duty by failing to conform to the required standard; a causal connection between the defendant’s conduct and the plaintiff’s injury; and actual damage or loss suffered by the plaintiff. Personal injury lawsuits may be brought after incidents such as motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, and nursing home negligence and abuse. A victim should retain a personal injury attorney in the Boca Raton area as soon as possible after an accident. This will allow the attorney to preserve crucial evidence and file the claim well within the applicable statute of limitations.

Car Accidents

Following a car accident, a victim may pursue a legal claim against the responsible party. A person operating a motor vehicle is expected to abide by the rules of the road and use care to avoid posing risks of harm to other motorists, passengers, and pedestrians. Unfortunately, drivers may engage in reckless behaviors such as driving while intoxicated, distracted driving, or speeding. Serious car accidents may result in devastating injuries, including brain trauma, spinal cord damage, fractures, burns, lacerations, and harm to joints such as elbows, shoulders, or knees. Some of the forms of compensation that may be recovered in a negligence claim include hospital and medical bills, the costs of future treatment, property damage to a vehicle, and lost wages from work, as well as the subjective pain and suffering that the victim endured.

Truck Accidents

Trucks in Florida may weigh up to 80,000 pounds. When a truck accident occurs, multiple people in smaller vehicles may suffer serious injuries or even death. Interstate truck drivers must abide by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulations, and failing to do so may be evidence of negligence. However, their insurance carriers may not readily accept responsibility, even when a truck driver’s liability seems clear. Often, truck accident lawsuits are complex, so it is important for your Boca Raton personal injury attorney to bring in all the parties that may be responsible for the collision, possibly including the trucking company, a third-party loader, a mechanic, and drivers of other vehicles. A trucking company may be vicariously liable, or it may have direct liability under a theory of negligent hiring, supervision, or training.

Motorcycle Accidents

The scenery and weather in Florida can make it a biker’s paradise. However, many motorcyclists are killed each year because of careless drivers. Motorcyclists are utterly unprotected from the force of a collision. The injuries may be devastating, often including broken bones, road rash, paralysis, and traumatic brain injuries. Our firm builds cases by using a team of legal professionals, medical experts, accident reconstruction experts, and investigators to fight for our clients’ rights all the way through trial when needed. We understand the burdens that a motorcycle accident can inflict on a victim and their family, and we will pursue every dollar to which you are entitled.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice takes place when a health care provider harms a patient by failing to provide competent care. To prevail in this type of case, the patient must be able to show that a doctor-patient relationship existed. The doctor also must have violated the applicable standard of care. The standard in a medical malpractice lawsuit is based on what a similar health care provider in the same specialty would have done when treating a patient in a similar situation. Medical experts are typically required to testify as expert witnesses, explaining the appropriate standard of care and how the defendant violated it. These claims are complex, and there are distinctive procedural requirements that must be met. Patients injured by negligent doctors, nurses, and hospital staff should retain Boca Raton personal injury lawyer Gregg Hollander to pursue damages.

Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

Under Florida Statute section 400.022, nursing home residents are entitled to certain rights. These rights include the right to manage one’s own financial affairs, the right to present grievances about staff or facilities, the right to refuse medication or treatment, the right to receive adequate and appropriate health care, the right to privacy, the right to dignity, and the right to be free from physical and mental abuse, as well as physical and chemical restraints. When these rights are violated and harm results, it may be appropriate to sue for damages. Family members should be vigilant to signs of potential neglect or abuse, such as bed sores, unexplained bruises, emotional withdrawal, and sudden changes in behavior. If you notice any indicators of neglect or abuse, you should immediately remove your loved one from the home and contact a personal injury lawyer in the Boca Raton area.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death lawsuits are civil claims that can be brought if someone’s negligence or wrongful act causes the death of another person. The personal representative of the decedent’s estate can seek legal remedies for the death and any losses arising from it. Damages are awarded to the victim’s estate and any surviving family members. Family members who can recover damages include the decedent’s spouse, children, parents, and blood relatives or adoptive siblings who were partially or completely dependent on the decedent for services or support. A wrongful death lawsuit is distinct from any criminal charges that may be pursued based on the same conduct.

Spinal Cord Injuries

The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves housed within the spinal column, or backbone. They relay messages between the brain and the body. When the spinal cord is damaged, a victim may be left paralyzed either in the lower regions of the body or in all four limbs. If a personal injury attorney in Boca Raton can establish a defendant’s liability for spinal cord injuries, a victim may be able to recover damages for medical bills, wage loss, nursing care, replacement services, therapy, rehabilitation, and pain and suffering.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

When a catastrophic brain injury occurs, a victim may be impaired for the rest of their life. It may be necessary to secure around-the-clock care. Most people do not have enough saved to cover the costs of such an injury. When a traumatic brain injury was caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another party, it may be appropriate to bring a personal injury lawsuit to recover damages, including compensation for care or replacement services, as well as lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering. Medical experts can help explain the scope of the victim’s injuries and discuss how they will affect the victim’s life.
