Wrongful Death

When someone you love dies in an accident in Florida that was caused by another person’s negligence, you—as the immediate family member—have the right to file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit against all liable parties. Granted, no amount of compensation can make up for the death of your loved one, but filing a Florida wrongful death claim or lawsuit is one way to hold the liable party accountable for their careless or negligent actions and relieve you of some of the financial and emotional burden that the death of your loved one has wrought.

Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A. represents mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, wives, and husbands whose loved ones have died in personal injury accidents in Fort Lauderdale, Weston, and other cities in Dade County, Palm Beach County, Broward County, and throughout Florida. Our Florida wrongful death lawyers understand that you are mourning the loss of your loved one, and we are sensitive to your needs and what you are going through. We are committed to fighting zealously for your right to receive compensation from the party responsible for your loved one’s death.

Wrongful Death & Damages
Family members in Florida have two years from the time of their loved one’s death to file their wrongful death case against any negligent parties. Wrongful deaths usually occur in personal injury accidents where a person acted carelessly, negligently, or recklessly and caused the fatal accident to occur.

Fatal car accidents, truck crashes, motorcycle collisions, medical malpractice errors, inadequate security cases, and accidents involving defective products are some of the many kinds of personal injury accidents that can lead to a wrongful death claim or lawsuit if a death occurs.

In Florida, the surviving family member’s biological relationship to the wrongful death victim will determine the compensation that he or she has a right to receive. Wrongful death damages in Florida can include compensation for medical costs, funeral expenses, lost wages, loss of financial support, loss of benefits, loss of companionship, and other related expenses.

At Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A., our Ft. Lauderdale area wrongful death attorneys believe that it is very important to get a full picture of your deceased loved one’s life when preparing to file a wrongful death claim or lawsuit for the family. Chances are that we never had the opportunity to meet your loved one before his or her unexpected passing. To fully portray who your loved one was and convey the scope of your loss to a jury, we will do our best to get to know your loved one by talking to you, your friends, and other family members. We want to obtain the maximum recovery possible for you and your family.

Our Florida wrongful death attorneys are involved in every aspect of our clients’ cases, and we are here to help you get through this challenging time. You will not pay us for our services unless we obtain your compensation for you.

Truck Accidents

Truck accident claims and lawsuits require a different approach than personal injury and wrongful death cases involving a car crash or motorcycle collision. The truck accident victim may have to go up against the truck driver, the truck company, the company that hired the truck company, and more than one insurance carrier—all of them committed to proving that none of them are financially responsible for your personal injuries or the death of your loved one.

A Florida truck accident case is not the type of personal injury case that can be handled without the help of an experienced Florida truck accident lawyer—especially as the majority of truck accident cases end up in court. At Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A., our Ft. Lauderdale, Florida truck accident lawyers have successfully handled many truck accident cases throughout Miami-Dade County, Broward County, Palm Beach County, and elsewhere in Florida.

Our Ft. Lauderdale truck crash attorneys are familiar with and have overcome the many tactics employed by truck companies and their insurers to try and escape liability for injuries sustained by the victims of truck accidents. We are zealous and committed litigators who will do what it takes to fight for the personal injury compensation that you deserve.

Truck Driver Negligence and Truck Injuries
Truck drivers are upheld to a higher standard of care on the road than car drivers and motorcyclists. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has certain qualifications and safety measures that a truck driver must uphold while driving on the road.

Unfortunately, not every truck driver takes this standard of care seriously enough and can cause serious injuries or death because of speeding, driver inattention, driver fatigue, driving longer than the amount of hours that truck drivers are legally allowed to be operating a truck, unsafe passing, failure to slow down or stop, and abrupt lane changes. Quite often, truck drivers are pressured by their employees to drive a greater number of hours than Federal law allows. This creates a scenario where truck drivers are operating this heavy machinery while sleep deprived.

Car drivers, motorcyclists, and pedestrians have no way to protect themselves from the impact of being struck by an 18-wheeler truck, a tractor-trailer, or any other large or heavily loaded truck. Truck injuries are frequently catastrophic—if not fatal—resulting in traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), spinal cord injuries (SCIs), massive internal injuries, broken bones, burn injuries, and death.

At Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A., we will work with experienced truck accident experts to preserve the evidence from your accident, which may include securing the black box or any other data collecting module that can tell us how fast the truck driver was driving when your accident occurred, what he or she was doing at the exact moment of impact, or whether the breaks were working properly. We will place the trucking company and their insurance carrier on notice immediately so that they are obligated to preserve their log records and any evidence pertaining to your accident and give them to us. This is why it is so important that you contact our Florida personal injury law firm right away.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Just because your CAT scan results don’t show that you are suffering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) doesn’t mean you don’t have one. Unfortunately, the technologies that exist today are not intricate enough to detect every kind of traumatic brain injury–even if you are experiencing symptoms of a TBI. Wrong diagnosis, lack of diagnosis, and delayed diagnosis of a traumatic brain injury are all too common occurrences.

At Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A., our Ft. Lauderdale, Florida traumatic brain injury attorneys know how to prove that you are suffering from a TBI that was caused by another party’s negligence in Miami-Dade County, Palm Beach County, Broward County, or another county in Florida. We would be happy to meet with you for a free consultation to discuss your TBI case.

Symptoms of Acquired Brain Injuries
One of the challenges of proving a traumatic brain injury is that there is sometimes no physical evidence to show that an injury to the brain–especially a mild TBI–has occurred. While some brain injuries are obvious, including TBIs involving fractured skulls, concussions, comas, or brain death, many TBIs–especially mild TBIs and traumatic brain injuries where the symptoms did not appear for days or weeks–can be difficult to identify without the help of the proper medical specialists to evaluate your injuries.

This is why it is essential that you hire an experienced TBI lawyer who understands the complexities of traumatic brain injuries–especially TBIs that were acquired in accidents–and knows how to prove your injury case to a Florida jury.

Some common symptoms of a TBI are headaches, memory problems, difficulty concentrating, lethargy, confusion, sleeping problems, nausea, problems thinking clearly, blurred vision, loss of one or more senses, loss of balance, and vomiting. Each person’s symptoms, the extent of brain damage, and the types of medical and recovery care required will vary depending on whether the TBI is permanent or temporary and mild or severe. Paralysis, seizures, loss of muscle control, emotional issues, personality problems, decreased sex drive, and depression can also result from a TBI.

At Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A., our Ft. Lauderdale, Florida traumatic brain injury lawyers are knowledgeable about the legal and medical issues involved with proving your TBI case. Over the years, our law firm has successfully represented many personal injury clients who have sustained their TBIs in car accidents, truck crashes, motorcycle collisions, pedestrian accidents, fall accidents, construction accidents, birthing accidents, and other types of injury accidents.

Our personal injury lawyers monitor the medical care of all our clients. Along with our top traumatic brain injury experts and injury accident experts, we will zealously pursue the personal injury compensation that you need for medical costs, recovery costs, long-term care, therapy, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses associated with your TBI. We are not afraid to file a lawsuit and go to court if necessary.

Spinal Injuries

Spinal cord injuries (SCIs) are very serious injuries. Medical care and recovery can be very costly. About 10,000 people a year sustain spinal cord injuries in accidents that take place in the United States. Motor vehicle accidents are the number one cause of spinal cord injuries. Fall accidents and crime-related accidents are the number two and three causes of SCIs. Other common causes of SCIs include construction accidents, electric shock, and medical malpractice.

At Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A., our Fort Lauderdale, Florida spinal cord injury lawyers will take the steps necessary to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit on your behalf. Our law firm represents clients with spinal cord injuries who have been injured in accidents caused by negligent or careless parties in Miami-Dade County, Broward County, Palm Beach County, and throughout Florida.

Recovery from a Spinal Cord Injury
Spinal cord injuries tend to be sudden and life altering. A person injured by a spinal cord injury may lose the ability to walk or retain the full range of motion in his or her upper body. A person with a serious SCI may not be able to do their job, play sports, drive, or hug their spouse or child. Chronic pain, bowel and bladder problems, sexual dysfunction, numbness, lack of muscle control, muscle stiffness, bedsores, blood clots, failure of autonomic responses, and loss of enjoyment of life can result from a serious SCI.

Sometimes, a spinal cord injury is temporary, and an injured person with a spinal or nerve contusion or separation, a ruptured disc, or a herniated disc can eventually recover with the proper medical care and therapy. Many times, however, a spinal cord injury can be permanent. It can be devastating for an SCI victim and his or her family to hear that he or she is now a paraplegic or a quadriplegic for life.

Any kind of SCI will require specialized medical treatment and long-term rehabilitation care, such as occupational therapy, physical therapy, and respiratory therapy. Crutches, a wheelchair, a respiratory device, a special bed, and leg braces may also be required. A person with a serious and permanent SCI may require round-the-clock professional care. Covering these costs and other associated expenses can be extremely challenging–even with insurance. This is why it is so important that you speak with a spinal cord injury lawyer right away.

At Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A., our Ft. Lauderdale, Florida spinal cord injury attorneys will work with top experts to zealously pursue your spinal cord injury claim or lawsuit so that you obtain the compensation you need to cover all costs and losses associated with your SCI accident. We are not afraid to go to court if that is what it takes to obtain your financial compensation.

Please call Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A. today at (954) 356-0006 or contact us online and ask for your free consultation with Attorney Arleen Lazarus or Attorney Gary Lazarus. Our law firm represents clients throughout Florida. We have law offices conveniently located in Ft. Lauderdale and Weston, Florida.

Slip, Trip and Fall

Florida’s premises liability law holds property owners accountable for maintaining safe conditions on their premises so that visitors, customers, or patrons do not slip, trip, or fall while on the property. Unfortunately, Florida juries can be reluctant to hold business owners liable for an injury victim’s trip/slip and fall accident even if the evidence and witness testimonies point to negligence. This is why it is so important that you retain the services of an experience Florida trip/slip and fall lawyer who will do what it takes to prove that you were injured in a fall accident because the property owner was negligent.

In Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, our slip/trip accident attorneys at Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A. will send an expert to the accident scene immediately so that any physical evidence, such as a broken step, a pothole, a poorly lit hallway, spilt liquid, or debris on the floor can be photographed and documented before the owner can make repairs, mop up the ground, or clear the space. Our Florida law firm has successfully represented many premises liability clients that were injured in Miami-Dade County, Palm Beach County, Broward County, and throughout Florida.

Trip, Slip, and Fall Injuries
In order to be held liable for your trip and fall or slip and fall accident in Florida, a property owner either must have known or should have known about the unsafe or hazardous condition that led to the accident that caused your injuries and did nothing to remedy the situation.

A property owner or manager must issue a warning to let others know that an unsafe condition, such as a wet floor or construction debris at a restaurant, bank, grocery store, shopping mall, restaurant, or coffee shop exists on the premise. Failure to do so can be grounds for a slip/trip and fall accident claim or lawsuit. Other unsafe conditions that can lead to trip/slip and fall accidents include uneven flooring, spilt food or objects that shouldn’t be on the floor, and building code violations.

Injuries sustained in a trip/slip and fall accident can be very serious and excruciatingly painful. Broken bones, hip injuries, a sprained arm, a broken neck, torn ligaments, spinal cord injuries (SCIs), and traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can occur during a serious trip/slip and fall accident. A trip/slip and fall accident victim may have to take time off from work to undergo hip replacement surgery, recover from a broken leg, or learn to walk again.

A trip/slip and fall claim or lawsuit is not the kind of case that you want to pursue without the help of an experienced Florida slip and fall lawyer. At Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A., we will work with trip/slip and fall experts and medical experts to zealously pursue your right to compensation for your injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other associated expenses.

Pharmacy Errors

Selling someone a prescription bottle with the wrong medication or dosage is considered a pharmacy error and grounds for personal injury compensation if the person who takes the medicine becomes sick or dies. Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A. is a Florida personal injury law firm that represents clients in pharmacy negligence cases in Fort Lauderdale, Weston, and elsewhere in Broward County, Palm Beach County, Dade County, and throughout the state. One of our Florida personal injury lawyers would be happy to meet with you to discuss your pharmacy error case.

Pharmacy Mistakes and Injuries
Unlike decades past, when pharmacies were small businesses run by one or two qualified pharmacists, pharmacies are now owned by large companies and are located within large retail chains such as Target, Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid. Many of these in-store pharmacies have inexperienced assistants, rather than qualified pharmacists, filing prescriptions for customers. The assistants’ lack of qualifications and experience can result in errors when filling prescriptions, which can lead to personal injury or death if the person taking the medication gets sick or dies.

Pharmacy errors can be very dangerous. Respiratory failure, brain injuries, allergies, heart attacks, extremely low blood pressure, extremely high blood pressure, psychotic episodes, hallucinations, and wrongful death are some of the serious injuries that can result when a prescription drug is dispensed incorrectly.

There is no room for errors when it comes to a pharmacist or pharmacy assistant giving you a prescription drug. Filling a patient’s prescription with the wrong medication or dosage, giving a customer someone else’s medication, failure to tell patients how to take the prescription properly, failure to notify a patient of any potential side effects, failure to call a doctor for clarification on a prescription note that is difficult to read, and failure to fill the prescription prescribed by a doctor are examples of pharmacy negligence.

Most pharmacy mistakes are easily preventable. Fatigue, inexperience, negligence, and carelessness are common causes of pharmacy errors. Unfortunately, pharmacy negligence is a more prevalent problem in Florida than people realize. It can be very traumatic for someone to become sick or injured after taking what he or she believes is the right medication prescribed by a doctor.

At Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A., our Ft. Lauderdale, Florida pharmacy error attorneys will work with top pharmacology experts who can figure out and explain the exact cause of your pharmacy negligence-related illness or injury. We will zealously pursue your claim or lawsuit. Our pharmacy error lawyers are not afraid to take a large pharmacy chain or retail corporation to court if that is what we need to do to make sure that you obtain your financial recovery.

Our law firm also handles Florida medical malpractice cases against doctors that have injured or killed patients due to negligence, as well as dangerous drug lawsuits against drug manufacturers that have allowed a dangerous or defective drug to enter the marketplace.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents typically involve persons who were not riding motor vehicles when they were struck by a car, truck, bus, or motorcycle while on the road. In 2006, 546 pedestrians were killed in traffic crashes while more than 7,200 others were injured in Florida, which has one of the highest state pedestrian death rates in the United States.

Pedestrian accidents are the type of personal injury case where it is important to get an expert to the accident scene right away to examine all the evidence. At Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A., our Ft. Lauderdale, Florida pedestrian accident lawyers will work with accident reconstructionists and other top experts to make sure that we gather the evidence needed to prove that your injuries were caused by another negligent person or entity. We represent pedestrians injured in traffic crashes on roads in Broward County, Miami-Dade County, Palm Beach County, and throughout Florida.

Pedestrian Injuries
Kids walking to school, bicyclists, skateboarders, in-line skaters, joggers, parents walking with their babies in strollers, as well as commuters, tourists, and vacationers on foot, all fall under the category of pedestrians. Injuries sustained in a pedestrian accident tend to be very serious–if not fatal. Serious neck injuries, spinal cord injuries (SCIs), traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), nerve damage, permanent disabilities, disfigurement, paralysis, multiple fractures, and death can occur to a pedestrian who is struck by a bus operator, a car driver, or a motorcyclist.

The medical and rehabilitation costs to recover from your pedestrian accident injuries can be very expensive. An injured pedestrian may have to take time off from school or work to properly recover. In Florida, you have the right to recover compensation for medical costs, surgery, physical therapy, occupational therapy, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other costs associated with your pedestrian injuries.

At Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A., our Ft. Lauderdale, Florida pedestrian crash lawyers will monitor your medical care to make sure that your injuries are getting the proper medical care that they require. We also provide a list of top medical specialists to all our clients.

Causes of Pedestrian Accidents
Traffic crashes involving an injured pedestrian usually could have been avoided if the driver of a car, truck, or bus had not acted negligently or carelessly. Drunk driving, speeding, driver inattention, driver inexperience, malfunctioning traffic signs, debris on the road, failure to yield, and failure to stop are, unfortunately, common causes of pedestrian injuries and wrongful death.

Our Ft. Lauderdale, Florida pedestrian accident attorneys are committed to holding any and all negligent parties responsible for your injuries. If necessary, we will fight with insurance companies to make sure that your rights to coverage and compensation are honored. We are not afraid to take your fight for financial recovery to the courtroom.

Nursing Home Abuse

If you have a family member residing in a nursing home anywhere in Florida, it is important that you are in regular contact with your loved one, as well as with the nursing staff members in charge of their care so that you can monitor the treatment that your sick or elderly loved one is receiving. Nursing homes are care facilities where sick or elderly patients are supposed to receive ongoing and proper medical care. This is not always the case, however, and the number of nursing home abuse and neglect cases that take place in Florida and throughout the United States every year is astounding.

In Florida, the personal injury law firm of Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A. represents clients who have been abused or neglected by a nurse or another staff member at a nursing home or other residential care facility in Fort Lauderdale, Weston, in the other cities of Dade County, Broward County, and Palm Beach County, and throughout the state. Your loved one deserves compensation for the personal injury, pain, and suffering caused by the abuse or neglect.

Causes of Nursing Abuse
A nursing home, like any other medical care facility, is required to provide a patient with a certain level of care. Failure to provide this standard of care–especially if this negligence is accompanied by abuse or neglect–is a violation of the patient’s bill of rights, as instituted by the state of Florida, and can be grounds for a nursing abuse claim or lawsuit if the patient is injured or killed as a result.

Unfortunately, the state of Florida has allowed many nursing homes without the proper insurance or with extremely low insurance limits to stay in operation. Many of these nursing homes are understaffed. They have too many patients and not enough nurses and doctors.

Often, the nurses that are hired are poorly trained, not paid enough, and overworked. They may lack the proper skills or time to properly care for a patient. Quick fix medical solutions may be implemented that may not necessarily be in the best interest of the patient. These types of conditions and behaviors at a nursing home can easily lead to abuse or neglect–especially for patients who don’t receive regular visitors or are incapacitated and unable to report the abuse or neglect.

A patient that is physically assaulted (punching, scratching, biting, slapping), sexually assaulted (rape, sodomy, inappropriate touching, molestation), physically neglected, emotionally abused, or verbally abused by anyone at a nursing home–whether a doctor, nurse, a maintenance worker, or another patient–is a victim of nursing home abuse. Medical neglect is also a form of nursing home abuse.

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
If you notice that your loved one has unexpected bruises, welts, cuts, bite marks, restraint marks, broken bones, bedsores, infections, or appears dehydrated, malnutritioned, withdrawn, or sedated for no reason, you should start to ask questions and take action immediately by contacting an experienced Florida nursing abuse attorney who can advise you about what you should do. Other signs that a patient may be a victim of nursing home abuse include rapid weight gain, sudden weight loss, and unexplained depression, biting, and rocking.

At Lazarus & Lazarus, PA, our Ft. Lauderdale, Florida nursing abuse attorneys can advise you of steps that you can take to protect your loved one from further abuse. We will take the necessary legal steps to file a nursing abuse claim or lawsuit against all liable parties.

Motorcycle Accidents

It is not unusual for defendants in motorcycle collision cases to build a defense that portrays the motorcycle rider as reckless or dangerous. At Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A., our Ft. Lauderdale, Florida motorcycle accident lawyers will send an accident reconstruction expert to the accident scene immediately so that we can gather the evidence to prove that it was the other party’s reckless or dangerous behavior that caused your personal injury accident.

We will zealously fight for the compensation that you deserve so that you can afford to pay for the medical treatment and other recovery care that you need to get better. Over the years, our Ft. Lauderdale personal injury lawyers have helped many injury victims injured in motorcycle accidents in Palm Beach County, Broward County, Miami-Dade County, and throughout Florida obtain their financial recovery.

Motorcycle Injuries
Motorcycle riders involved in motor vehicle collisions with a car, truck, bus, or a non-moving object, such as a barrier, a fence, a wall, or a post, will usually sustain serious injuries because they don’t have anything to protect them from the impact of a motorcycle crash.

Ever since the state of Florida repealed its motorcycle helmet law in 2000, the number of motorcycle accident victims that have died or sustained traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) has risen among riders 21 years of age and older who no longer have to use a helmet when riding through Florida’s busy roads or highways.

Broken bones, fall injuries, road rash, burn injuries, permanent scars, severed limbs, spinal cord injuries, neck injuries, and paralysis are among the more serious injuries that can result when a motorcycle rider is involved in an accident. The costs of multiple surgeries, reconstructive surgeries, treatment at a burn unit, physical therapy, ongoing medical care, rehabilitation care, and other recovery expenses can be astronomical.

Personal Injury Compensation
Unlike car accidents victims, who are guaranteed at least some coverage because Florida law mandates that car drivers have PIP (Personal Injury Protection), this same protection does not extend to motorcyclists. This means that a motorcycle accident victim’s best chances of obtaining financial recovery for their injuries is to hire an experienced Florida motorcycle crash attorney who can represent their claim or lawsuit.

A motorcycle accident victim that has been injured because of a careless or negligent driver may be entitled to receive personal injury damages for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other related costs. In accident cases where a motorcycle rider got hurt because the motorcycle he or she was riding in was defective or had a defective part, the victim can file a products liability claim or lawsuit against the manufacturer.

Please give Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A. a call at (954) 356-0006 or contact us online and ask for your free consultation with Attorney Arleen Lazarus or Attorney Gary Lazarus. Our law offices are conveniently located in Weston, and Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

Medical Malpractice

There is a two-year statute of limitations for filing a medical malpractice case in Florida. This means that an injured person (or the family or guardian of an injured or deceased person) has two years from the time that he or she found out (or should have found out) that a health care provider might have caused the injuries or death to file a medical malpractice lawsuit.

Insurance companies in Florida are allowed six-months of this two-year time frame to evaluate your claim before your medical malpractice lawyer can even file your lawsuit. Unless you retain a Florida medical malpractice attorney to begin investigating your medical malpractice case immediately, you could forfeit your right to compensation if the two-year deadline passes.

At Lazarus & Lazarus, P.A., we are known for our ability to successfully deal with insurance companies so that your right to receive compensation for your injuries is protected and upheld. Our Ft. Lauderdale medical malpractice attorneys will work quickly and efficiently to push your case through to the Florida courts.

Grounds for Medical Malpractice
Medical care and treatment are supposed to make you better, not worse. Primary care physicians, nurses, dentists, surgeons, hospitals, and other health care providers are required to provide a reasonable standard of care to patients in Florida. Failure to do so can be grounds for a medical malpractice claim or lawsuit against any liable parties.

Failure to diagnose, wrong diagnosis, surgical errors, prescription errors, delayed diagnosis or treatment, birthing errors, performing the wrong procedure, failure to properly monitor a patient, improper administration of anesthesia, medical lab errors, and negligence are just some of the errors that can lead to a patient becoming injured or dying because of medical malpractice.

If your injuries or the death of a loved one occurred because a medical provider was negligent, careless, or reckless, you could sue to receive damages for medical costs, pain and suffering, lost wages, lost benefits, ongoing medical care, burial or cremation costs, funeral expenses, and other related costs.

Zealous Legal Representation & Personal Attention

Lauderdale medical malpractice attorneys will work with a team of qualified medical experts that can examine your injuries and medical records and testify on your behalf.
