Areas of Practice
We are experienced in auto accidents and ready to fight to obtain the compensation that you deserve following a car accident. If you have been involved in a car accident, we can advise you of what laws will apply to your case and the many options available to the victims of car accidents who have suffered injuries or damage to their vehicle. As a result of the high volume of car accidents, the insurance companies are immediately ready to begin their investigation in an effort to limit their financial liability and discredit your claim. These insurance companies will try to close your injury claim as quickly and cheaply as possible. Don't get victimized twice!
It would be great to think that the insurance companies involved with your case are looking out for your best interest. Unfortunately, they are looking out for their bottom line. We are experienced in dealing with insurance companies and their representatives. We will handle all communications with the insurance company so that you can focus on your recovery.
Florida is a beautiful place to live and we are fortunate to have access to our waterways all year long. However, operation of water crafts often result in accidents causing serious injury and sometimes death. We have an intricate knowledge of the applicable boating laws and statutes.
Knowing how to pursue a claim after a boating accident can be difficult, so speaking with a boating accident attorney immediately is important. Your attorney can help you obtain evidence, gather the necessary proof of liability you need to make your claim, and work within the legal system to get the compensation you deserve.
Thousands of people riding their bicycles are injured in the State of Florida every year. Many of these accidents occur as a result of someone else's negligence. The impact of a bicycle accident can be traumatic and cause life-changing damages such as brain injury, spinal cord injury, permanent disfigurement, paralysis or even death.
Florida law states that a bicyclist has the burden to prove that the other driver negligently caused the accident. This makes it critical to secure all evidence immediately, including taking photographs of the vehicle, obtaining statements from eyewitnesses, and doing everything possible to assess the vehicle's speed.
If you or a loved one has been hit by a moving vehicle while on a bicycle, it's imperative to seek the advice of an attorney.
A thorough understanding of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations are important when representing someone who has been injured in a trucking accident. And while federal regulations are enacted to require truckers to follow certain safety rules, these rules are often broken resulting in serious injury or death. We understand the importance of documenting the details and events surrounding a trucking accident as soon as possible to insure a proper and thorough investigation of the accident. This often requires hiring certain experts to fully investigate the causes and circumstances surrounding the trucking accident.
Fortunately, most pets do not pose a threat. Unfortunately, some dogs can quickly become very dangerous. Dog owners have a responsibility to properly restrain their dogs at all times - especially if they know of the dog's dangerous nature. When there is a failure to do so and an injury follows, the victim of the attack has the right to pursue compensation for past and future damages.
Dog attacks in Florida are regulated differently than other accidents resulting in injury. It is very important that a proper investigation take place immediately following an attack so that evidence can be identified and preserved. We will work tirelessly to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
SLIP AND FALLS
Injuries that result from a slip and fall accident can be very serious. Owners and operators of public places such as restaurants, supermarkets, and retail stores have a responsibility to maintain a safe place for the public. This legal responsibility benefits you if you slip and fall while on or in someone else's property.
With any slip and fall accident, it is crucial that a proper investigation take place immediately before evidence becomes lost or is destroyed. For this reason, it is very important that you contact us immediately so that the proper measures can be taken to preserve and maintain this evidence.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, do not speak with any insurance company representative until you have spoken to an attorney. What may appear to be a simple accident may in fact be far more complex with far reaching and painful results. An insurance company will not tell you this. We will fight with big insurance companies every day, helping our clients obtain the compensation they deserve.
Even with proper protective gear and safety equipment, the significant forces involved in a motorcycle accident can leave the rider with serious and permanent injuries. Florida bikers can be injured as a result of the negligence of another driver, an unsafe roadway, or a defective motorcycle (often due to improper installation of motorcycle parts by a motor shop). We've seen everything from broken bones to fatalities even though the motorcycle rider was wearing the proper riding and protective gear and obeying all traffic laws.
Many insurance company representatives and defense attorneys will attempt to put the blame for a motorcycle accident on the rider, no matter what. Most of the time the people handling these cases for the insurance companies have never even operated a motorcycle.
When a motorcycle accident occurs, you need an experienced attorney who can thoroughly investigate and properly handle motorcycle injury claims. Motorcycle injury cases are investigated and handled differently than automobile or trucking accidents. We have handled a variety of motorcycle injury cases over the years and will provide you with the experienced representation you deserve.
Accidents involving walkers, joggers, and runners happen every day and a collision between a motor vehicle and a pedestrian can have serious consequences. For this reason, we strongly encourage all walkers, runners and joggers to wear bright, reflective clothing at all times, especially at night, and to avoid using any music devices that will prevent you from hearing your surroundings.
The impact of a pedestrian accident can cause life-changing damages such as brain injury, spinal cord injury, permanent disfigurement, paralysis, or even death.
Florida law states that a pedestrian has the burden to prove that the driver negligently caused the accident. This makes it critical to secure all evidence immediately - including taking photographs of the vehicle involved, obtaining statements from eye witnesses and doing everything possible to assess the vehicle's speed at the time of the accident. We are experienced in handling motor vehicle-pedestrian accidents.
If you or a loved one has been hit by a moving vehicle, it's imperative to seek the advice of an attorney. We will document your claim and communicate with the driver's insurance company to get you the compensation you deserve.
