Mr. Quackenbush represents clients who have been hurt in boating, jet ski and waverunner, and parasailing accidents, crashes and wrecks.

Pembroke Pines is named after a British member of Parliament for the County of Pembroke (named Sir Edward Reed). Pembroke Road was named after the member of Parliament and, when the City of Pembroke Pines was incorporated, the Mayor at the time recommended that it be named Pembroke Pines after the great quantity of pine trees growing around Pembroke Road.

Mr. Quackenbush represents children who have been injured in accidents in Pembroke Pines and around the State of Florida. When a minor makes a claim for personal injury, it is actually the minor’s parents who must step in and purse the case as the technical “Plaintiffs” on behalf of the child. When the child’s case settles, a judge must frequently approve of the settlement, which oftentimes winds up in the form of a “structured settlement” – in which proceeds from the settlement are distributed in regular installments once the minor reaches the age of majority.

Pembroke Pines also has a significant elderly population. In fact, as of the year 2000, 15.2 percent of the population in Pembroke Pines was made up of people over the age of 65. Mr. Quackenbush represents elderly people in their cases of nursing home neglect and elder abuse. Unfortunately, people do become more vulnerable to crime as they age, and Mr. Quackenbush protects the rights of the elderly.

When you are injured in an accident and lose income as a result, you may be able to pursue a “lose wage” claim. In this type of claim, you may be able to be reimbursed for your lost time at work. Additionally, if it is possible that you won’t be able to work in the future, you may be able to pursue a “loss of future earning capacity” claim. These damages are speculative, and so Mr. Quackenbush may hire a “vocational rehabilitation” expert to evaluate you and your job and determine what type of work, if any, you’ll be able to do in the future. He may also hire an expert called an “economist,” who will attempt to quantify those damages and give a number for exactly how much money you will lose in the future as a result of your not being able to work or not being able to work as much.

Vigorous Representation by this Pembroke Pines Car Accident Attorney

Mr. Quackenbush represents clients in their premises liability cases in Pembroke Pines and throughout the State of Florida. A premises liability case results when you are hurt on the property of another person or entity due to the fault of the other person or entity. Premises liability includes slip and fall and trip & fall accidents.

Premises liability may also include negligent security cases. A negligent security case results when you are on the property of another person or entity, a crime occurs on the property as a result of poor or inadequate security, and you are injured as a result. If the property owner didn’t provide security (or the security provided was inadequate) and the crime and your injuries occurred as a result, then you may have a negligent security case against the property owner. The negligent security case will be strongest if the crime occurred in a high crime area – after all, if that is the case, then it will be easy to make the argument that the property owner should have provided proper security.

Finally, Mr. Quackenbush represents people in their products liability and medical malpractice cases in Pembroke Pines and throughout the State of Florida.
