Personal Injury and Wrongful Death
The Personal Injury Lawyer team at RRBH Law has extensive experience in negotiating settlements out of court and in trial litigation both in Florida State and Federal Courts. Also known as “tort” law (a French word for “wrong”), personal injury law covers incidents where a victim has been physically or emotionally harmed and is seeking compensation for the intentional, careless or reckless act that results in injuries or damages to one’s person or property. Such incidents may include slip and fall accidents, wrongful death accidents and catastrophic personal injuries.
If you have been involved in a car accident and were injured as a result, you are most likely concerned about how you will pay for necessary medical treatments that can be extremely costly, even for minor injuries. From the moment you call our office you will be connected directly with a personal injury lawyer who will explain what benefits you may be entitled to and how to pursue those benefits under the law. We will represent your best interests to your insurance company and all parties involved in your case.
Likewise, personal injury cases often require a great deal of documentary evidence, including accident reports, medical records, witness statements, and other specialized documentation, depending on the nature of the case.

Wrongful death results from misconduct on the part of another person or company is considered. Such deaths are often not the result of intentional misconducts, but rather negligence and carelessness. Many such accidents occur in work-related accidents, medical mistakes, car or plane accidents or deaths related to pharmaceuticals.
Our attorneys at RRBH Law are well experienced and will help navigate the laws that are in place in Florida to protect those family members left behind. Read more about wrongful death related to Medical Malpractice here.
Negligent security cases are primarily cases against hotels, shopping centers and other businesses who have a known problem with crime at their facility and yet have failed to protect their visitors and customers. These cases involve victims who have been severely assaulted, raped or even killed as a result of the business establishment’s negligence in putting in place the proper security measures to protect them.
Residents of Florida love a pool day. However, owning a pool is a serious responsibility considering that about 3,000 people drown each year in the United States and even more suffer irreversible injuries. Drowning is the leading cause of accidental deaths among children between one to four years of age, and the second leading cause among all children from one to 14 years of age, following only motor vehicle accidents.
Drowning occurs in public and private swimming pools, and even bathtubs. Negligence plays a large part in many drowning accidents, whether the cause is a lack of supervision or a problem with the location such as lack of a proper locked enclosure. The personal injury lawyer team at RRBH Law is highly skilled in the details of representing individuals and family members who are victims of such unfortunate accidents.
The retirement state of choice for senior citizens around the world has long been Florida. Many of our senior citizens live in nursing homes and assisted living facilities and their families rely on these facilities to ensure the welfare of their loved ones. However, each year thousands of senior citizens are neglected, abused and exploited in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Injuries include physical abuse, denial of life necessities causing massive dehydration and malnutrition or infections from untreated bedsores. Falls can easily lead to serious injury and death in the elderly so when a facility makes improper use of bedrails or restraints it can be fatal.
At RRBH Law we make full use of police and private investigators to identify where the nursing home or assisted living facility may have been negligent in protecting your loved one so that we may pursue maximum compensation.
We love dogs, but sadly unprovoked dog attacks are more common than most people are likely aware. These attacks often cause serious injuries resulting in extensive scarring and sometimes even death. Unfortunately, the majority of these attacks occur to children who are too young to understand fully the potential dangers of approaching a strange dog or are too small to defend themselves against such an attack. However, Florida has employed a theory of liability known as “Strict Liability” when it comes to dog bite cases. Strict Liability positions the owner of a dog to be liable for injuries and other damages caused by the attack regardless if the owner was negligent or not.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is a complex injury with a broad range of symptoms and disabilities that approximately 1.4 million Americans experience each year. The emotional and financial impact of this type of injury can be devastating to both the victim and his or her family.
The two types of head injuries are “open” and “closed”. An open injury involved a fracture to the skull due to a fall or other direct trauma to the head. A closed head injury does not involve a fracture but can be more serious due to the swelling or the brain and the formation of blood clots inside the skull. Both types of injuries can cause complete paralysis or death. When a TBI leaves a family wage earner unable to work, the results for the family can be disastrous, often putting the family home, and the ability of the children to receive higher education at risk.
In the United States, 10,000 workers are killed in work-related accidents each year; 60,000 are permanently disabled; six million are injured, and 100,000 die from an illness related to exposure to lead or asbestos. It is bad enough for the families of these workers to suffer such tragedies, but at the very least, they should not have to worry about medical bills, lost wages and other expenditures related to the accident. Workers compensation laws are extremely complex and constantly changing. The attorneys at RRBH Law are experienced in such cases and can help you properly secure benefits that you are legally entitled to receive.
