Home Florida Personal Injury Hip Injuries

Florida Hip Injuries

Especially among older Americans, hip injuries are a serious problem. In fact, it’s the leading injury among adults 65 years and older. Forty-five percent of all hip injuries are among this age group. Hip injuries can occur in a car accident or slip and fall accidents at home or a supermarket.

The real problem with hip injuries is that they often take a long time to heal or don’t ever heal at all. There are usually huge medical expenses associated with a hip injury.

If you have received a hip injury due the negligence of others, you need to hire a Florida personal injury attorney. The attorney can help you receive fair compensation for the injury.

What to do After a Hip Injury

After a hip injury accident, you need to first inform the police or the business where the accident occurred. If you can, you should take pictures of the area where the accident occurred. At a supermarket, you should try to notice if a “Caution: Slippery Floor” sign is around. The absence of a sign could increase your chances of winning a lawsuit.

If you received the injury in an automobile accident, you will need to file a Personal Injury Protection claim. This is a type of insurance that automobile owners carry on vehicles in Florida. You could also be entitled to more compensation if you received significant bodily injury during the accident and the other driver was negligent. An example of that might be texting while driving or driving under the influence of alcohol.

According to Florida state statutes, "Negligence is the failure to use reasonable care", and if your injury was caused by the negligence of another, then you have the right to be compensated for your injuries. Reasonable care is that degree of care which a reasonably careful person would use under like circumstances. Negligence may consist either in doing something that a reasonably careful person would not do under like circumstances, or in failing to do something that a reasonably careful person would do under like circumstances.
