What is Personal Injury?
Personal Injury occurs from the negligence or wrongdoing of someone that results in an injury. Personal injury can be a physical, mental or emotional injury caused by the carelessness of another person. Personal injury laws are meant to protect the public from the effects of another’s actions and to be compensated with money damages. Not all injuries will have the same monetary recovery because of the different facts and circumstances surrounding each case. For example, a slip and fall injury may result in different damages and compensation than an auto accident.
Common Types of Personal Injury Claims

If you are involved in an automobile accident, you may be entitled to recovery of damages from the negligent party’s insurance company and/or your own insurance company. If you find yourself involved in an automobile accident here are the things you need to do immediately to protect your rights and interests:
- Stop and call 911.
- If you are injured get a safe distance away from your vehicle and wait to receive immediate medical care.
- If you have a camera, take pictures of the damage of all vehicles involved in the accident.
- Obtain the contact information of any witnesses.
- Do not admit to being at fault for the accident and ensure the police report is correct.
- The police report may be the single most important evidence in your case; keep it and call us right away.
Contact the Louis Law Firm after receiving emergency medical care and before continuing your treatment. Do not file your own claim with either insurance company and do not talk to any insurance company even if they call you first. Allow us to file your claim with your insurance company to ensure you are properly compensated.
In most cases, we can assist you in recovering your medical bills, lost wages, property damage, loss of the enjoyment of life and other related costs. Call The Louis Law Firm if you, a family member or someone you love has been seriously and/or permanently injured in a car, bus, motorcycle, commercial truck, or any other type of vehicle accident involving driver negligence.

Property owners (especially commercial property owners) are obligated to provide reasonably safe premises for their guests. Unfortunately, some property owners provide little to no security and fail to warn their guests even when they know that people have been the victims of violent crimes committed on or near their property. Places where negligent or inadequate security is a problem generally include:
- Condominiums and apartments complexes
- Malls and shopping centers
- Office buildings
- Gas stations
- ATM machines
- Night clubs
The property owner may be liable for a victim’s injuries caused by third person criminal attacks that occur on their property. Here at The Louis Law Firm, our attorneys work to ensure victims injured by a property owner’s failure to provide reasonable security receive just compensation.

Slip and Fall
When dangerous conditions on public or private property cause someone to slip or trip and fall, the property owners or the person responsible for maintaining the property may be held liable for resulting injuries. Property and businesses owners have a duty to provide a reasonably safe environment for visitors on their property. If the owner neglects this duty and someone is injured, they may be held liable for the injured person’s medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Responsible parties can be found negligent for dangerous conditions including:
- Uneven pavement
- Torn carpeting
- Poor lighting
- Wet floors
- Slick flooring
- Failure to adequately clean the floor
- Improperly secured rugs and mats

In Florida, when a wrongful act or negligence of one person causes a death of another the Florida Wrongful Death Act allows the victim’s family to bring a suit on behalf of their deceased relative.
The decedent’s personal representative who acts as the estate administrator must bring a wrongful death action on behalf of the family members who are entitled to recover damages. Further, the estate administrator of the deceased person may bring claims for medical and funeral expenses and lost income. The survivors who can recover damages include the decedent’s spouse, children, parents, and any other blood relatives who were dependent for support upon the person who died.
