Other Practice Areas
Our lawyers have worked in some of Florida’s biggest law firms handling a variety of civil disputes, litigation, and trials. Our firm’s practice areas, therefore, encompass a diverse array of civil disputes, including agricultural disputes and construction litigation, as well as the spectrum of personal injury and wrongful death claims.
Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Claims
“Personal injury” cases encompass more than just trucking, motorcycle, and car accidents. People can be seriously injured or killed due to someone else’s negligence in a variety of ways, such as from a defective product, a fall or other injury at a construction site, a bicycle collision, or a boating accident.
Our comprehensive personal injury law practice includes:
- Defective Products Liability
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Construction Accidents
- Premises Liability/Slip and Fall
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Boating Accidents
- Wrongful Death
After any personal injury caused by the negligence of another, the injured party has the right to recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other legal damages from the responsible party. Getting a full and fair amount of compensation can be an uphill battle, however. Insurance companies will deny that you are seriously injured or that their insured is at fault. They might even claim your own negligence is to blame. And if they do admit fault, they will try to get you to settle quickly for less than your claim is worth.
