DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU But be aware that this can happen, even if you are a great driver and you are always careful. Most importantly, our client walked away from this accident because she was wearing her seat belt.
Over the years, our firm has had the pleasure and responsibility of representing clients who have been in minor accidents or in some of the major accidents as depicted on this page. In all of these cases, our lawyers met personally with the injured victims.
We do not rely on investigators, paralegals or other people to handle your case. Rather you will meet with one of our lawyers and we promise to give you the personal attention we feel our clients deserve.
If you have been injured as the result of an accident of any type...automobile, truck, bicycle, trip and fall...we would enjoy talking to you to help you understand your rights under Florida law.
Of course, there is no charge for this initial consultation. But a couple of words of advice: If you are involved in an automobile accident, photographs help! The one at the left helped demonstrate both the force of impact and how the accident occurred. And the insurance carrier may try to take a recorded statement from you. At the very least, talk to a lawyer before agreeing to this procedure.
Remember...we are here to help you. Take a moment to check out our website and get to know us. And feel free to call or email us if you have any questions at all.
