Personal Injury: explanation and causes

Over the course of our lives we find ourselves in many unpleasant situations, and some of the more serious ones leave us with injuries. These always come as accidents - either from your own negligence or someone else’s. It is likely that the inflicted injury makes you eligible for compensation or damage recovery. However, these are difficult to obtain without the help of an experienced attorney. Our personal injury attorney in Broward County specialises in providing legal services to those who claim to have been affected by personal injury.

The term “personal injury” is incredibly broad! So what does it actually entail? Below we explain what personal injury is, what the common causes are and what our personal injury lawyer can do for you.

What is personal injury?

At our practice we define personal injury as “injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property”. Most commonly this refers to a type of tort lawsuit, where the person bringing the lawsuit (or, plaintiff) has been inflicted with damage to the body or mind.

Personal injury law generally covers the following:

  • Physical, Mental or Reputational Injury
  • Wrongfully Caused - caused wrongfully by another person or by an entity
  • Everyday Situations - negligence, injury as a result of someone acting irresponsibly
  • Intentional Injurious Acts
  • Defective Products

Different jurisdictions value and classify damages differently. The victim’s compensation assessment usually takes into account medical bills, pain and suffering, and a reduced quality of life.

What are the common causes of personal injury?

According to New York City Bar, common causes of personal injury that make you eligible for damage recovery are:

  • Auto accidents
  • Slip/Trip & Fall (liquids, snow and ice)
  • Slip/Trip & Fall (unsafe conditions on property) other than liquids, snow and ice
  • Premises Liability
  • Construction Site Accidents—Negligence, New York Labor Law 240 and 241
  • Dram Shop (Alcohol) Liability
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Product Liability
  • Police Misconduct
  • Wrongful Death
  • Battery
  • Assault
  • Infliction of Emotional Distress
  • False Accusations—Defamation of Character by Libel or Slander

These examples cover a vast array of potential scenarios. It is important to point out how easily personal injury can be caused in everyday situations. And often, personal injury attorneys deal with non-life threatening injuries caused by one of the above.  

Services offered by our Pembroke Pines personal injury attorney

At our practice, we are hugely committed to helping our clients in the most professional way. There are so many areas of personal injury cases, that it would be almost impossible to be an expert at all of them. Therefore, we specialise in cases of negligence - an area in which we excel by proving successful results. Working with the doctrine of negligence is tricky as the liability is difficult to establish. Many personal injuries are caused by unavoidable accidents. Therefore, establishing liability requires proving that the responsible party would have acted differently, thus avoiding the accident, under the given circumstance.

Our  personal injury attorney will support your cases where negligence from a person, company government or, in fact, any entity, lead you to sustain personal injury. Thus, if you have suffered from personal injury, do not hesitate to consult us to see what we can do FOR YOU!

Your best interests are our foremost priority!

  • SARA T.

    I was referred to Attorney Ralph Gonzalez to take care of injuries sustained from a car accident where I was rear ended. Not only did they make sure I got the care I needed, but were extremely professional and thorough in communication to explain the processes, follow ups, and expectations. Just closed the case after some time with a bigger settlement than expected, and I couldn't be happier with the treatment/services received from this office. Will 100% recommend to everyone. Thank you!


    I am very pleased with the service and I received from this law firm. I am thankful to have Mr. R. Gonzalez as my attorney. I would recommend calling this office to represent you.


    Mr. Rafael is always professional and gives realistic expectations of everything.
