Hurt by Another’s Negligence? A Hollywood Florida Injury Lawyer Can Help
Did a drunk driver run a red light while texting and crash into your car? Maybe your pharmacist was not paying enough attention and they gave your baby the wrong medication. Or perhaps they forgot to put up a wet floor sign after cleaning something up at the Aventura Mall and you fell and got hurt.
Personal injury can occur when you least expect. There are countless ways in which another person’s misconduct, negligence, or even intentional conduct can hurt you or cause the death of your loved ones.
Negligent individuals and people who hurt others intentionally must be held accountable for their dangerous behavior — otherwise, they might just keep on doing it and harm someone else. Furthermore, you should never have to pay for another’s mistake, and filing an injury claim can help you get fair and just compensation if you suffer any form of personal injury due to another’s negligence.
At The Injury Law Firm of South Florida, we wholeheartedly believe in your right to compensation, and understand what it takes to help you find justice and get what you deserve. Our experienced Hollywood injury lawyers have successfully represented countless others like you in and around the area, and we can help you, too. Our vigorous representation is focused on achieving a fair resolution and settlement of every personal injury case that we handle.
How do you start? By scheduling a consultation at our law firm.
Why You Should File a Hollywood Injury Claim after Being Hurt by Another’s Negligence
Wondering whether or not it is actually worth it to file a claim?
That is a valid question. If you have truly only suffered a minor injury, the answer is likely no. After all, even though we make no money until and unless you win your claim, there is still quite a bit of time, money, and effort that has to go into every personal injury case.
However, make sure that your injury really is minor. We have heard countless stories from people who did not believe it was worth it to sue only to have their injury linger and cause them problems. Untold pain and suffering, costly medical bills, lost wages due to missing work for medical appointments — the costs of an injury can go on and on.
Our legal team applies smart, insightful strategies to see to it that our clients get fair and just compensation for any physical, financial, or emotional damages associated with personal injury. This compensation not only reimburses the client for lost earnings, but also helps them take care of themselves and their families as they recover, cover funeral and burial expenses, find consolation for the emotional distress suffered, and more.
You may not even realize the various damages that you are able to receive compensation for without talking to a lawyer.
Moreover, as mentioned above, filing a claim brings accountability to those responsible. Particularly where businesses and other organizations in Hollywood are concerned, they have a reputation to protect. If you help shine a light on bad practices that resulted in your injury, they are far more likely to alter those practices and become more safety focused.
Your case can eliminate dangerous practices, keep others from cutting corners, and stop them from being reckless. In short, you can help make Hollywood safer for everyone.
No Matter What Kind of Injury You Suffered in Hollywood, We Can Help
Some Hollywood injury lawyers focus on a particular type of case. Auto accidents, for example. Or medical malpractice.
At The Injury Law Firm of South Florida, our attorneys have experience in a wide variety of injury situations — something we believe makes us better lawyers, because we understand both how personal injury cases work as a whole in Florida, as well as the individual nuances associated with each type of claim.
As such, our team is able to handle all kinds of personal injury cases, including those that involve:
Florida is one of the worst states to get in a car accident—almost a quarter of Florida drivers lack insurance. Uninsured or underinsured drivers can leave you with the bill, even if the accident wasn’t your fault. We can help you get the compensation you need to cover damages and injuries caused by negligent drivers.
Bad Faith Insurance
Some insurance providers will do anything to avoid paying for a claim. When an insurance company fails to fulfill their end of the contract, this is referred to as “bad faith insurance.” We may be able to help you stand up to these big companies and win the compensation you deserve.
Cyclists have just as much right to be on our streets as people in motor vehicles, and everywhere drivers are implored to share the road. Still, Florida has one of the highest incidences of car-bicycle accidents in the nation, and drivers are often to blame.
With more coastline than anywhere else in the country, it is no surprise that Florida has most boats in the United States. Unfortunately, we also have the most boating accidents, because far too few people truly understand and respect safe boating rules.
Bounce House Injuries
Big, bright, soft, cheery -- bounce houses look harmless, but that is a terrible illusion. Every year thousands of people -- mostly children -- are injured on inflatable attractions like moon bounces, and many of these accidents are due to negligence. Whether your child was hurt at a neighbor's backyard party or at a children's play facility with bounce houses, make sure the responsible parties are held accountable.
Beyond getting the right treatment and rehabilitation for your injury, it’s also important to seek out compensation if you were hurt because of someone else’s negligence. No one should have to deal with brain injuries on their own.
Both Metro and school bus drivers have to go through rigorous training courses to ensure that they know how to handle extremely large vehicles that can often be unwieldy and hard to control. But even in the most experienced hands, buses just aren’t designed for their safety.
Child Injury and Accidents
Accidental child injuries are incredibly costly. Nationally, these types of accidents lead to tens of billions of dollars in costs every single year – and that is just for medical expenses. It does not account for money lost due to missed work, property damage, and anything else associated with the incident.
If you’ve been injured in an accident on a construction site, you want to make sure that you and your family are protected. Depending on the severity of the accident, you might lose out on work, have high medical bills, and even continue to battle against pain for years.
Cruise Ship Accidents
Norovirus. Fires. Drownings. Assaults. When people think about cruises, they imagine mouth-watering buffets and awe-inspiring shore excursions, but there are also all kinds of ways that you can get hurt. Did the cruise line do enough to protect you?
As much as parents hate to imagine it, accidents and injuries do occur at daycare centers and afterschool care facilities. If your child has been injured because of staff negligence or unsafe conditions, you may be able to recover medical compensation and general pain and suffering through a daycare injury claim.
Manufacturers and designers have a duty to ensure that the products they sell to you are as safe as possible. And if there are any specific worries, they need to place warnings on their items to make sure that you are aware. If a product does not work the way it is supposed to and this causes you to come to harm, we can help.
Owners have a responsibility to keep their pets under control. If they fail to do this, you deserve compensation for any injury you or a loved one sustains.
Although electrical accidents are leading causes of workplace injuries, they can happen anywhere – including public venues, pools, and your home. Determining the party who is responsible for these types of accidents can be tricky, which is why enlisting the aid of a skilled Florida electrical injury attorney is particularly critical.
Funeral Home Negligence
You trust funeral and mortuary professionals to carry your deceased loved one to their final resting place with dignity and care. However, if your funeral home or mortuary company mishandles remains, abuses their position, or is otherwise neglectful, you have the right to recover damages through a funeral home negligence lawsuit.
Live Event Injuries
A fun night out can take a devastating turn when you are injured at a show or other special event. Event operators have a responsibility to keep their guests safe by inspecting and maintaining facilities, conducting background checks, providing sufficient security measures, and more. Whether you were injured at a concert, festival, sports game, or other live event, you may have a right to compensation for your injuries.
Maritime / Admiralty
Did you know that accidents and injuries that occur on the water fall under a completely different set of laws than those on land? Maritime injuries require maritime lawyers, and we have that experience.
Bikers are far more likely than those in passenger automobiles to be seriously injured or even killed if they are involved in an accident. When someone else hits you, fighting back may be the only way you can pay for your recovery.
Property owners have a duty to keep you reasonably safe while you are on their premises. So if you are robbed in a parking lot or attacked in your hotel room, they may be liable.
Nursing Home Abuse
Seniors go into nursing homes and assisted living facilities because they need help and care, but all too often what they receive is pain, punishment, and neglect. Do not let this happen to you or someone you love.
The roads around Boca Raton, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, West Palm Beach, and other parts of South Florida were designed for cars, not people. Perhaps that is why Florida routinely has one of the highest rates of pedestrian accidents in the country. Fight back to make the streets safer for everyone.

Those who own pools are required to engage in certain safety practices, such as installing fences and gates to keep out young children. If you or someone you love was hurt because of a pool owner’s negligence, hold them accountable.
Maybe your doctor prescribed you drugs that interacted badly when they should have known better. Or the drug company neglected to mention certain side effects that caused you harm. Prescription drug injuries can have truly serious consequences.
You expect the roads you drive on to be thoughtfully designed, well maintained, and safe to travel on. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Sometimes, a defect in the road or highway causes a serious accident. Learn more about how we can help you recover damages for your defective roadway accident while making the roads safer for Florida drivers.
Spinal Cord Injuries
When your spinal cord is injured, it can greatly impact your life, including causing you to lose the ability to walk or move. Many people with this type of injury need care for life. If someone’s negligence caused your condition, you owe it to yourself to seek compensation.
Slip and Falls
Slippery floors. Uneven surfaces. Broken lights. These are just a few of the reasons that can cause someone to fall and get hurt. Property owners have a responsibility to keep up with maintenance and repairs.
Spring Break Injuries
Say the words "spring break" and no one imagines getting hurt. They think about partying on the beach or in clubs. Relaxing on the beach. Boating. Flying around on fun rides at amusement parks. Unfortunately, countless people are injured visiting Florida for spring break every year because of another's negligence. If your or someone you love gets hurt, make sure you learn how it happened and fight back if someone didn't do their job.
If you or a loved one is hit by a big rig or tractor trailer, your experience is going to be a lot different than that of someone involved in an accident with just another passenger vehicle. The trucking company will get involved, and the rules and regulations for these kinds of accidents are different, too. Make sure you have someone on your side who understands how they work.
Uber & Lyft Ride Sharing Auto Accidents
Uber, Lyft, and others have upended transportation and become wildly popular in just a few short years. People enjoy using rideshare services because they are fast, easy, ubiquitous, and often quite a bit cheaper than taxi services. Unfortunately, new services always come with kinks. With ride shares, it is the fact that things can become complicated if you are injured. Who is liable? Can you get compensation? We can help you sort everything out.
Workers’ Compensation Claims
Injuries at work happen all the time – particularly in certain industries. Unfortunately, companies have a vested interest in protecting their bottom line, and often that matters more to them than your health and their responsibility. For fair and just compensation, you may need a lawyer on your side.
Nothing can replace a life that was tragically cut short by the misconduct of another. A wrongful death lawsuit can, however, provide you with the compensation you need to cover medical, funeral, and other costs so that you can get back on your feet—all while holding the guilty party responsible.
Hollywood Injury Attorneys with the Experience You Need
Before his time at The Injury Law Firm of South Florida, Jeffrey Braxton actually spent many years working for the dark side — he defended insurers against the type of cases he now regularly takes against them. In retrospect, his time doing that has proven incredibly valuable to his current career, because he is able to use the insight he gained into how insurers defend themselves in these types of cases to poke holes in those defenses and help get his clients the compensation they need and deserve. In his combined time trying injury cases on both sides of the law, Mr. Braxton has handled literally thousands of cases and seen just about everything.
For well over a decade, Ms. Perez has been practicing law in Florida.

Ms. Perez currently serves as the lead workers’ compensation trial counsel at the firm, and in 2003 was named “Rookie of the Year” by the Florida Workers’ Advocates for her work protecting workers. She has also tried a number of serious auto accident injury cases — both bench and jury trials.
A practicing lawyer since 1997, Mr. Stein’s focus at The Injury Law Firm of South Florida is wrongful death, personal injury protection (PIP), and general personal injury.

As a father of two boys, he has a personal stake in working to make Hollywood — and all of Florida — a safer place to live and grow up.
