How Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys Can Help You

Personal Injury Law Firm Tallahassee, Florida | Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys

There are many reasons that someone may need a personal injury lawyer in Tallahassee. Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys are legal specialists in a wide range of practice areas, but in Tallahassee some of the common incidents that we see include: 

1. High Pedestrian and Cyclist Traffic with Increased Risk

Tallahassee, with its commitment to green spaces and a growing student population, sees a high volume of pedestrians and cyclists. While bike lanes and dedicated walkways enhance safety, the risk of accidents involving cars is still a concern. If you’ve been injured in a car accident while cycling or walking due to a negligent driver, Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys will fight for your rights. 

We understand the specific vulnerabilities of pedestrians and cyclists and will work tirelessly to hold the at-fault driver accountable and secure the compensation you deserve for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

2. Distracted Driving on I-10 and City Streets

Distracted driving is a national problem, and Tallahassee is no exception. Texting, talking on the phone, or using navigation apps while driving can significantly increase the risk of accidents. According to a 2023 report by the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, Leon County (which encompasses Tallahassee) has a higher rate of distracted driving citations compared to the state average. If you’ve been injured by a distracted driver, Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys have a proven track record of holding negligent drivers accountable and securing maximum compensation for their clients.

3. Slip and Fall Hazards in a City Steeped in History

Tallahassee’s charm comes with its age. Uneven sidewalks, historic brick pathways, and potential slip and fall hazards can lurk around every corner. Property owners have a legal responsibility to maintain safe premises. If you’ve been injured due to a slip and fall on a public sidewalk, uneven flooring at a business, or a poorly maintained walkway at an apartment complex, Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys can investigate the cause of the accident, determine liability, and fight to ensure you receive compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

4. Premises Liability Incidents in a Growing City

With a booming student population and a thriving business district, Tallahassee has seen a surge in new construction and development. Unfortunately, this growth can sometimes lead to safety hazards. Uneven construction surfaces, missing railings, or inadequate lighting in parking lots can all lead to slip and fall accidents. If you’ve been injured in a premises liability incident, Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys will investigate the cause of the accident, determine liability, and fight to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.

5. Medical Malpractice in a Hub of Healthcare

Tallahassee boasts excellent medical facilities and a highly skilled healthcare workforce. However, even the best systems can falter. Instances of medical malpractice, such as misdiagnoses, surgical errors, medication mistakes, or inadequate care, can have life-altering consequences. These complex cases require a legal professional with expertise in both law and medicine. Alexander Shunnarah Trial Attorneys have a proven track record of handling medical malpractice cases in Tallahassee and will work tirelessly to hold negligent medical professionals accountable and secure the compensation you deserve for your injuries and suffering.

FAQs: Understanding Your Legal Options after a personal injury in Florida

Here are some of the most commonly asked questions about injuries and accidents in Tallahassee, Florida.

How do I report an accident in Tallahassee?

Florida law requires that any accident involving injuries, death, or significant property damage be reported to the police immediately. You can contact the Tallahassee Police Department or the Florida Highway Patrol to file a report at the scene or shortly after the accident.

Can I file a lawsuit for my injuries after a car accident?

You can file a lawsuit if your injuries meet the “serious injury” threshold under Florida law, which includes significant and permanent loss of an important bodily function, permanent injury within a reasonable degree of medical probability, significant and permanent scarring or disfigurement, or death.

How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit in Florida?

The statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits in Florida is four years from the date of the accident. It’s important to initiate legal action within this timeframe to avoid being barred from seeking compensation.

What types of compensation can I seek in personal injury a lawsuit?

Compensation can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other losses not covered by your PIP insurance. If the at-fault party’s actions were particularly egregious, punitive damages might also be awarded.

Should I seek medical attention even if my injuries seem minor?

Yes, it is crucial to seek medical attention immediately following an accident, even if the injuries appear minor. Some injuries, such as internal bleeding or concussions, may not show immediate symptoms. Prompt medical evaluation is essential for your health and can also provide vital documentation for any legal claims.
