No One Likes Getting Injured

Port Orange Personal Injury Attorney

No one likes getting injured, and some even get lucky enough to never be injured. Really though, it is hard to make it through life without some form of injury. While being injured is typically a bad thing, it does create a story for us to tell and commonly gives us a scar to show off. Never be afraid to show your scars either, for there was a time that scars showed you had survived your fair share of battles. Sadly though stories and scars do little when it comes to impressing bill collectors. You can spin the most fantastical tale of bravery, cunning, and endurance to a credit card company and they will still ask for your monthly payment afterward. So if you can’t pay in scars and glory what can you pay  It is hard to continue working when you are recovering from an injury, and if you can’t work you can’t get paid.

When you are injured, you might be due compensation depending on the circumstances. The main circumstance that entitles you to compensation is when you are injured through another’s actions or inactions. This is the grounds for a personal injury case. Many times these cases are caused by negligence in many forms and can occur anywhere. If you slip and fall in a store because the floor was wet and a warning was not posted you are liable for a personal injury case. If you are using some form of device properly and it malfunctions in such a way to cause injury, you can qualify for a personal injury case. One popular example of this was when the Samsung Galaxy Note7 smartphone was exploding and causing injuries to its users.

This extends to items and property maintained by someone else as well. If you are injured in an automobile or a boat due to someone’s reckless driving, they can be help responsible. If you are injured in someone’s yard even, because they did not keep up with their lawn maintenance, they can be held liable for the injuries. Many times these are also caused by accidents such as at sporting events. A tackle might go wrong and an injury might occur, or two players might collide going for a ball.

It’s almost scary all the ways it can happen, doesn’t mean we can stay safe in our home though. Especially since it is the second most common area for fatal injuries to occur. Plus that would just be boring, staying inside all the time and never going outside to see friends or family. Luckily there is still a good chance you won’t be injured, and if you are injured, you have Rue & Ziffra to help you out.

Expect the Unexpected

Daytona Beach Personal Injury Attorney

 We have all heard the wise words before, “Expect the unexpected”, or some variation on the idea. “Beware the unseen” or “You never know what may happen” or perhaps the most interesting version “Hope for the best, prepare for the worst”. These are all good sayings, though they don’t really take hold until the unexpected, unseen, or worst happen. We go out on the town, get behind the wheel, and never expect that this could be the last drive we’ll be taking for a while. All it takes is about five seconds for an accident to happen. Most likely, it only took you five seconds to read that sentence. That isn’t a very long time at all, yet it can take months or even years to recover from it, and that is just physically speaking. The financial burden of it could take even longer.

   Even a broken leg can throw a pretty heavy wrench in the gears. If you have a job that is physically demanding, you won’t be able to get back to work right away. You could try to get a less active job, but do you have the training and experience for it, and will it pay the same as the last job? How are you going to support yourself much less a family? The worst part of all of this is that it isn’t even any of your fault! Someone was texting and driving when they rammed into your vehicle, or driving intoxicated, or simply not paying attention to the road.

   So, why should you have to suffer when you are not even responsible for it? The answer simply is that you shouldn’t have to suffer at all. When you are injured, you are due compensation for your injuries. These can include covering medical bills, income loss from an inability to work, and property damage. For some of this, insurance might cover the costs, though even then they may not cover all of it. If the injuries are severe enough, you might even become eligible for social security disability.

   If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, don’t hesitate to contact the law offices of Rue & Ziffra. When you come to us, you get the dedication and experience of a respected Daytona Beach personal injury lawyer. We have been serving the Volusia County area for over 40 years now, and we plan on continuing to serve our clients for years to come.
