Injuries happen all the time, whether at work or at play, and all too often, these injuries occur because of someone else’s negligent actions. A wrong-way driver, a speeding motorist, a negligent restaurant manager, an intoxicated big-rig driver—all of these scenarios can lead to major injuries to innocent people through no fault of their own. These injuries can result in heaps of medical and rehabilitative therapy bills with no way to pay them because your injuries forced you to miss work. The financial pressure builds, adding to your suffering—suffering you did nothing to deserve, suffering caused by another party’s negligence.
People who were hurt because of someone else’s negligence can hold those negligent parties responsible in civil court. This is referred to as liability, and the negligent party can be held liable for the fallout that resulted from their actions. By hiring our Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorneys to file your civil claim, you can make sure that the people responsible for hurting you or your loved one are held accountable for their negligent actions. Negligence can take on many forms, and virtually all of them lead to negative outcomes—outcomes that could have easily been prevented.
One common source of personal injury is vehicular accidents caused by negligent driving. Car accidents, truck accidents, and motorcycle accidents take place on United States roadways each day. The Association for Safe International Road Travel reported that as many as 37,000 people are killed in traffic accidents in the United States every year, and according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 3,000 people lost their lives in traffic collisions in 2017 in Florida alone. Many of these fatal accidents could have been prevented if not for the negligent actions of the at-fault parties.
Pedestrians and people who ride bicycles are arguably some of the most vulnerable people on the road. Cyclists and pedestrians have few protections in the event of an accident, unlike motor vehicles that have steel frames, airbag technology, and safety belts there to keep them safe in a crash. Accidents involving motor vehicles and pedestrians or motor vehicles and bicyclists can be devastating for these individuals, resulting in severe injuries or even fatal injuries. Even bicycle helmets can only provide so much protection when a cyclist is involved in a crash with a large vehicle such as a truck or bus. If you were hurt while walking or cycling, the Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorneys at Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates can help you file a civil court claim.
Publicly available premises, such as hotels, restaurants, and rented banquet halls, are supposed to be reasonably safe for visitors to enjoy. However, some property owners or managers are negligent when it comes to keeping buildings to code or in warning customers of potential hazards. For example, if a freshly cleaned floor in a restaurant is wet and no sign is placed warning patrons to step with care, the owner of the restaurant could be held liable for any slip-and-fall injuries that result from the unwarned-of slick flooring in their establishment under premises liability law.

The tragic truth is that in some cases, negligence can be so extensive that it results in death. When a preventable death occurs because of someone else’s negligence, that person can be held liable in court by the family of the deceased. These cases are sadly common, including situations such as:
If your loved one’s death resulted from another party’s negligence, the Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorneys at Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates can help you seek damages in court. While no amount of financial compensation will make up for the loss of a loved one, it can help cover funeral costs and bring a sense of closure to those who have been stunned by grief.
At Vladimir Tsirkin & Associates, our primary goal is to assist our clients in the recovery of damages related to their personal injury claims. These damages are assessed based on factors like extent of damages to personal property, gravity of personal injuries sustained, cost of medical treatment related to injuries, the cost of daily living expenses (such as grocery costs or the costs of rent, mortgage, or utility bills) during injury recovery time, and lost wages resulting from missing work due to injury. After the damages to persons and property have been assessed by the courts, they may then be paid out to you by the liable party as financial compensation. While money cannot undo the harm that was caused by your personal injury, it can help to ease the financial burdens that often accompany such injuries.
