Do I Have a Personal Injury Claim?
The foundation of any personal injury claim is negligence or intentional wrongdoing. If someone else’s actions led to your injury, you should not be responsible for the aftermath. Depending on the circumstances of the case, you may be eligible for damages to cover all your injury-related expenses. You could recover compensation for pain and suffering, property damage, medical bills, lost wages, disfigurement, disability, and more.

Filing a personal injury claim when suffering from a truck accident can be overwhelming. These cases can be complex due to multiple parties being involved and the extensive trucking regulations.
Let the legal team at Buda Law handle your personal injury case when you’ve been injured in a trucking accident.
Oftentimes the resulting injuries from a truck accident can be major due to the weight of the truck and the cargo it’s carrying. These personal injuries result in higher medical bills and lost income than you’d see with a regular vehicle accident.
Motorcycle accident victims are at a higher risk of catastrophic injuries due to the nature of their vehicle.
Motorcycles offer no protection to the rider and can result in severe injuries including broken bones, brain injuries, nerve damage, partial/complete paralysis, skull/facial fractures, and more. The nature of the injuries many motorcycle accident victims sustain result in them not being able to return to work or maintain the life they had prior to the accident.

Pedestrian and Bike Accidents
Like motorcycle accidents, pedestrian and bike accidents can be just as devastating. When involved in a pedestrian or bike accident, it is rare that the victim walks away without injury. In Hillsborough County alone, there were 657 pedestrian accidents and 476 bicycle accidents in 2022 according to the data provided by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

Big or small, companies should make sure their products are safe for consumers. When a personal injury occurs due to a defective product though, manufacturers and insurance agencies can make filing a claim difficult.
There are three main types of defective claims: design, manufacturing, and marketing (failure to warn). A design defect occurs when the product is unsafe due to its assembly, regardless of how much it is tested. No matter what, the product will always be defective due to its design. A manufacturing defect happens when there is a mistake in the assembly, but the design itself is safe. If a company does not disclose side effects or dangers associated with its product, this is considered a marketing defect.
If you believe that you have suffered an injury from a defective product, you might have a personal injury case. Schedule a free consultation with the Tampa personal injury lawyer at Buda Law today.

If you believe you have been injured due to a defective medical device or recalled medication, you might have a personal injury case.
