We Can Help You Get Compensation for Injuries in Tamarac
Did you know that Tamarac was actually founded as a bedroom community, and that early leaders even let Fort Lauderdale annex some commercial areas to keep it that way? Or that the city’s founder named it after a string of carwash businesses he owned?
The Tamarac of today is a far different place. With its proximity to bigger South Florida cities, it has become a sought-after tourist destination. Businesses want to be here. The population has become far more diverse.
This growth, however, has also led to an increase in accidents and injuries due to negligence. Busier roadways are more dangerous for cyclists, motorcyclists, and drivers. People get hurt on job sites. Elderly residents suffer from poor care in nursing homes.
At The Injury Law Firm of South Florida, our attorneys work to help people who have suffered these types of horrors every single day. With over 100 years of combined experience in and around Tamarac, they understand just how debilitating it can be to suffer an injury due to negligence – not just physically and mentally, as you try to recover, but also financially.
Simply put, getting hurt is expensive. You have medical bills. You miss work. You have to pay for transportation. The list goes on and on. These are all things that, were it not for the negligent actions of another, you never would have had to endure.
Our lawyers believe that this is wrong. They believe that no one should have to pay for the mistakes of someone else, and that people should not get away with harming others. To that end, they see their job as fighting to help you obtain the compensation you need and working to hold negligent parties responsible so they are more likely to change their ways.
Just as importantly, they get results. While every case is different, our injury attorneys have enabled our clients to win millions in compensation over the years, and they will work hard to get you the best results possible.
All Kinds of Accidents Happen in Tamarac – Our Personal Injury Lawyers Can Help
Florida injury law is complex, with different rules and regulations applying to different types of accidents and injuries. If you are hurt, you want to make sure the attorney you choose has a track record of success handling the specific type of accident you endured.
This is not something you have to worry about with The South Florida Personal Injury Firm. Our firm features a number of skilled, experienced personal injury lawyers. This enables them to focus on the areas of injury law where they are most comfortable, while still allowing the firm overall to help people with all kinds of injury claims, such as:
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.
This list is not comprehensive. If you do not see your specific accident or injury here, all you have to do is ask, and we can let you know how we can help.

You’ve probably hear of statutes of limitations. They refer to the limit of time that legal action can be brought. Most of the time, you hear about them in relation to people not being able to be prosecuted for criminal acts because too much time has passed.
However, if you want to bring a lawsuit against someone for an injury, there’s a statute of limitations for that, too. Worse, Florida law now says that you have to see a doctor within a matter of weeks after an accident or you forfeit your right to seek compensation.
