If you are in need of high-quality representation through your personal injury case, we encourage you to schedule a free case evaluation at once. We offer strong representation for all of the following types of cases:

Bicycle Accidents
With an annual average of more than 100 fatalities from bicycle accidents, Florida is the most dangerous state in the nation for cycling. Many dangers are presented when motor vehicles and bicycles collide. If you have been injured by a motor vehicle driver and need to recover compensation, our firm can help you.

Car Accidents
Many car accidents can be serious and result in severe injuries or even death. Individuals who are suffering injury from a car accident in Florida can pursue compensation to recover damages. To pursue compensation, Florida law requires that you prove that the other party was negligent.

Drunk Driving Accidents
Approximately 40% of all fatal accidents in the state of Florida involve a drunk driver, based on information from the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. If you have been injured or have lost a loved one in a drunk driving accident, we can help you pursue compensation. As drunk driving accidents often result in complex cases, it is important to secure the legal assistance of the lawyer at our firm.

Medical Malpractice
Medical malpractice cases can hold negligent doctors and hospitals responsible for their mistakes. In the state of Florida, medical malpractice cases are complex and require specialized assistance from a professional attorney. Take action today because the statute of limitations for medical malpractice cases is only two years, rather than four years as for a typical personal injury case.

Motorcycle Accidents
When an accident occurs between a motorcyclist and a larger vehicle, the injuries to riders are often catastrophic. Under Florida law, negligence in a motorcycle accident case is described as the conduct of a driver that resulted in property damage and physical harm to the motorcycle rider. Reckless behavior on the part of the driver of the larger vehicle can result in him or her being held responsible for damages.

Premises Liability
Property owners have a responsibility to their guests to ensure that no safety hazard exists or results in harm. Under Florida law, business owners in charge of premises owe a duty to maintain the premises' safety and security for the benefit of visitors. If injury of a guest is caused because of a lack of reasonable effort to keep the premises safe, a premises liability or negligent security claim can be filed.

Slip and Fall Accidents
If you are injured in a slip and fall accident, you can take steps to obtain the monetary compensation you deserve. Slip and fall accidents are caused when a person loses their footing and is injured by an object or obstacle in their way or due to an unsafe, slick, or uneven surface. Under Florida premises liability law, businesses must keep their property reasonably safe for guests.

Texting Accidents
New laws in Florida have banned texting while driving, but individuals still act in a negligent manner to send or view a text while driving. In fact, a 2012 survey by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety stated that two-thirds of drivers admit to texting while driving. If you are injured as the result of a driver who was texting, you can pursue damages with a personal injury claim.

Trucking Accidents
Each year, thousands of catastrophic injuries and wrongful deaths occur in truck accidents. If you have suffered injuries from an accident involving a tractor-trailer, 18-wheeler, big rig, semi-truck, or any other large commercial vehicle, you can pursue damages with a personal injury claim. Take immediate action because the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Florida is four years.

Uninsured Motorist Claims
In the state of Florida, each driver is required to have a minimum of $10,000 personal injury protection and a minimum of $10,000 no-fault property damage liability insurance. Although this law exists, many drivers do not obtain insurance. If you are injured in an accident by a driver who is uninsured, you can file an uninsured motorist claim to pursue compensation.

Wrongful Death
Wrongful death is a tragic result of an accident caused by a negligent individual who does not exercise a reasonable level of caution. The Florida Wrongful Death Act can be found in § 768.16-768.26 of the Florida Statutes. Our attorney can help you pursue damages after the loss of your loved one to recover financial compensation for medical costs, funeral costs, loss of companionship, and loss of income.
