Boca Raton Attorney Assisting Injured Victims in Taking Legal Action

If you were injured due to someone else’s negligence in South Florida, you should seek the assistance of an attorney who is adept at advocating on behalf of victims. Regardless of the nature of your injury, it is essential to retain a skilled Boca Raton accident lawyer who can vigorously assist you in your pursuit of compensation from the responsible party. Gregg M. Hollander has decades of experience in this area of the law. His practice is solely dedicated to assisting victims and their families. In addition to handling car crash cases and other common types of accidents, he handles claims arising from construction accidents and other more unusual situations.

Construction Accidents

Construction is a booming industry that provides many jobs to workers throughout Florida. It is a sad reality, however, that proper standards and procedures are not followed at many construction sites, and workers may suffer injuries as a result. If you were injured in a construction accident, there may be multiple entities responsible for your harm, such as the architect or engineer who designed the project, the construction supervisor, or a manufacturer of defective equipment. You should speak with Gregg Hollander to discuss your options for seeking damages.

Boating Accidents

Florida’s waterways provide ample opportunities for boating. Unfortunately, boaters and passengers can become victims of boating accidents, which often cause significant property damage and devastating injuries. Most boating accidents are avoidable and do not occur unless there is negligence on the part of the boat operator or owner. For example, the operator of the boat may operate it in a reckless manner, causing an accident. In some cases, the owner of a boat will fail to maintain the boat or will negligently entrust the boat to someone who is not qualified to operate the boat, which ultimately results in an accident. If you sustained harm due to a boating accident, the accident attorney at our Boca Raton firm can assist you in developing a plan to seek compensation from the responsible party.

Train Accidents

Train accidents can range from a train crash or derailment to a passenger tripping and falling while walking on or off the train. The Federal Railroad Administration imposes strict regulations on train companies and operators, including regulations regarding signage, speed limits, and the operation of the train. Additionally, train companies have a duty to maintain a safe environment for travelers to prevent any injuries within the train. If any duty imposed on the train company is breached, the company should be held accountable for your injuries.

Plane Accidents

Plane accidents are among the deadliest accidents that can occur. They are typically caused by pilot error, improper maintenance of the plane, or an inherent defect in the plane due to a design or manufacturing flaw. Proving liability for a plane accident can be complicated and may require an expert opinion regarding the cause of the crash. In addition to plane crashes, injuries can also occur when boarding or exiting a plane, or during the flight, especially if appropriate safety measures are not taken. If you were injured or suffered the loss of a loved one due to a plane accident, you should speak to Boca Raton accident attorney Gregg Hollander to discuss whether you may be able to recover compensation from the responsible parties.

Scooter Accidents

In Florida, scooters are a popular form of transportation for both residents and tourists. While all Florida drivers are obligated to drive in a safe manner, drivers of cars and SUVs are often distracted or simply do not notice scooters, and they may negligently collide with them. Since scooters lack the protection provided by cars, scooter accidents can result in serious injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, broken bones, and lacerations. If you were injured in a scooter accident, you may be able to recover compensation from the other driver if you can show that he or she was negligent. In cases in which the accident was caused by a flaw in the scooter, you may be able to seek damages from the company that manufactured or maintained the scooter.

Dog Bites

Dog owners have a responsibility to control their pets. Under Florida law, if a dog bites a person in a public place, or in a private place where the person is permitted to be, the dog’s owner is liable for any damages caused by the bite. This is true regardless of whether the dog has formerly bitten anyone, or whether the owner knows of the dog’s propensity for viciousness. If the negligence of the person who was bitten partly caused the bite, however, the victim’s damages will be reduced in proportion to his or her fault.
