Legally speaking, wrongful death is when a death is caused by someone acting in a careless, negligent, or reckless manner. Accidents are the most common cause of wrongful death claims, usually involving motor vehicles. Family members who survive will often seek compensation from those responsible by filing a claim or lawsuit against car manufacturers, other drivers, truck drivers, and even the government responsible for maintaining the roads.
Wrongful death claims can also be the result of medical malpractice, a defective product or medication, or criminal activity. Zervos & Calta, PLLC is committed to working aggressively on behalf of families that have lost loved ones as a result of someone else’s carelessness, negligence or recklessness.
Injuries from motorcycle accidents tend to be more severe and life-threatening than injuries from typical auto accidents, because a motorcyclist does not have a steel structure surrounding him/her in the crash. Additionally, motorcycles do not have safety belts, most often resulting in riders being thrown from the bike during an accident and making direct contact with the pavement. It is so vital to hire a Spring Hill motorcycle accident lawyer who understands these types of injuries to ensure that you are fairly compensated.
Large roadway trucks are typically referred to as tractor-trailers, semis or big rigs and are familiar sights on Florida highways and roadways. Due to their massive sizes and weights, these trucks are hazardous to smaller passenger roadway vehicles, most often causing severe injury or death to other drivers when involved in a roadway accident.
Large trucks are more likely to be involved in a fatal multiple-vehicle crash as opposed to a deadly single-vehicle crash than are passenger vehicles. The Spring Hill truck accident lawyers at Zervos & Calta, PLLC have the experience necessary to handle these kinds of catastrophic injuries with compassion and dedication.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Slip and fall accidents account for over 1 million hospital emergency room visits, with fractures occurring in 5% of all people who fall. Floors and flooring materials contribute directly to more than 2 million fall injuries each year. The Zervos & Calta accident attorneys have extensive experience in handling a wide variety of slip and fall accidents and premises liability cases ranging from large retail chain stores to individual property owners.
Pedestrian accidents in Florida happen every single day. Due to city streets being designed with priority for expedited road travel versus pedestrian traffic, as well as perpetually sunny skies and increased traffic from tourism and snowbirds, Florida streets remain a threat to pedestrian safety. In fact, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), Florida ranked number two in the United States for fatal pedestrian accidents in the first six months of 2017.
While not all pedestrian accidents result in fatalities, they typically result in serious injuries such as fractures, brain injuries, and spinal injuries. We have years of experience working on behalf of injured victims of pedestrian accidents, making sure they are deservedly compensated.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries generally occur after a severe blow to the head or body, and can also be caused by other trauma and penetrating objects. Severe damage to the brain includes bruising, bleeding, torn vessels and tissues, to name a few. These injuries can result in lifelong disabilities or death. The leading causes of these types of injuries, as per The Brain Trauma Foundation, are falls, motor vehicle collisions, and being hit by or against other objects.
If you think you may have suffered a traumatic brain injury, seek medical attention immediately! Then call Zervos & Calta, who will aggressively fight for you and make sure you receive fair compensation for your injuries.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries suffered as a result of an accident are devastating and affect every aspect of your life, as well as your family’s life. A spinal cord injury is when damage has been sustained to the spinal cord itself or any of the nerves connected to it. This damage can cause paraplegia (affects all or part of the trunk, legs, and pelvic organs) or quadriplegia (affects your arms, hands, chest, legs and pelvic organs) and affect your body’s ability to control your limbs.
If you or a loved one has suffered a spinal cord injury due to someone else’s negligence, you deserve aggressive and compassionate legal representation. Call the law offices of Zervos & Calta, PLLC, who will use their decades of experience to fight for you.
Doctors, nurses, nurse’s aides, and other medical staff and medical facilities are held to a certain standard of care when treating patients. When doctors and other staff fail to meet that standard of care and cause injuries or death to a patient, they have breached their duties and committed malpractice. Types of medical malpractice include:
When a loved one dies due to the negligence of a medical professional, the surviving family members can file a wrongful death claim to receive financial compensation. We have years of experience with medical errors so call today for a free consultation to discuss your potential medical malpractice claim.
Florida dominates the rankings of most dangerous cities for bicyclists, and they are in much more danger and more likely to be killed in the state of Florida than any other state. What many people don’t realize is that bicyclists have the same rights to the roadways, and must obey the same traffic laws, as the drivers of other vehicles. When an accident happens involving a bicyclist, just like in crashes involving pedestrians, the injuries tend to be more severe. If you have been injured in a bicycle accident, call personal injury attorneys Spring Hill.
Florida has a statute that makes a dog owner automatically liable for “any damage” to a person or domestic animal. The owner of the dog is responsible for any damage or injury which is caused by his/her dog, whether the dog bit you or jumped on you, or pushed or pulled you to the ground. With only limited exceptions to this statute, this means that a dog owner must pay for your injuries.

Personal injury lawyers work on behalf of those who have suffered injuries as a result of another person’s carelessness or negligence. Lawyers will fight to negotiate a settlement with the insurance company or the person who caused the injury, or seek compensation in court if necessary.
You could potentially handle your own case, but fighting big insurance companies and their attorneys is daunting and difficult. Whatever settlement you may win will be much lower than if you use a good personal injury lawyer with experience.
Hiring an attorney following an accident is always a wise decision. Insurance companies sometimes have agents take recorded statements from accident victims and offer to settle their case for pennies on the dollar. If you accept the check and cash it, the insurance company will consider your claim “settled and over,” even if you haven’t finished your medical treatment. An accident attorney, preferably a trial lawyer with experience, will guide and protect you.
