Florida Personal Injury
When someone else injures you through negligence or intentional wrongdoing, Florida statutes give you the right to recover compensation for damages. The purpose of personal injury law is to restore injured parties to the conditions they were in prior to injury (at least as much as possible). Suffering from serious injury is a traumatic experience. Afterward, many people have trouble thinking clearly due to trauma and pain. Work with talented lawyers, who genuinely care, are committed to obtaining a favorable outcome, and can help you deal with the pain, financial stress and other losses sustained.
At Kleinman & Lessmann, we focus exclusively on plaintiff injury cases, primarily in the following areas:
Every year, more auto accident claims are filed than any other type of injury claim. In 2012, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported 33,561 deaths nationwide resulting from traffic crashes. Personal injury protection (PIP) insurance is not always adequate to cover damages. In Florida, when auto accident injuries meet the statutory threshold for serious injury or death, and the other party was at fault, a skilled lawyer can help you recover compensation.
Truck, Semi and Tractor Trailer Accidents
Some of the most devastating injuries occur in truck accidents due to sheer mass and momentum during impact. Unfortunately, when trucking companies or their drivers are at fault, they often rely on legal teams to challenge fair recoveries. Representation through a competent lawyer can help you level the playing field and increase the likelihood of obtaining a fair settlement or judgment.
Losing a loved one through an accident or for some other unjust reason is an unspeakable tragedy. We understand that consoling family members and tending to their needs take priority and that filing a lawsuit may be the last thing on your mind. As your law firm, we handle all legal matters for you, leaving you free to deal with your life. Florida statutes treat wrongful deaths differently than other personal injury cases and our attorneys are well-versed in the nuances of applying the law to your case.
Slip and Fall/Trip and Fall Accidents
Slipping on a wet or slick surface or tripping over an obstacle like a cord or carpet tear can result in fractures, concussions and other serious injuries. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that falls are the major cause of death and nonfatal injuries for individuals age 65 and older. When commercial enterprises have unsafe premises, such as poorly lit stairwells, unstable railings, slippery floors or other hazards, people are at risk for falls. Even so, property owners are often liable for damages.

The most comprehensive study of motorcycle accidents to date, the Hurt Study, revealed that most motorcycle collisions with passenger vehicles are caused by the other driver (66 percent). Many drivers violate the motorcyclist’s right-of-way and the reason is, most drivers do not see motorcycles until just before or at the moment of impact. When seeking compensation, attorneys must prove the other driver was at fault.
Construction workers work under dangerous conditions. Defective cranes or scaffolds, lack of safety precautions and other negligence can injure construction workers and people who pass by construction sites. Third parties are often liable.
Defective products injure people every day. When legal action is taken, many dangerous products are removed from the market through product recalls. Companies have a legal responsibility to manufacture safe products and can be held accountable for injuries resulting from defective manufacturing, defective product designs or lack of proper label warnings or instructions.
