Committed to Relentlessly Pursuing Justice

Our Practice Areas

We represent Floridians across a variety of accidents, injuries, and liabilities. If another party caused you or your loved ones harm, we can help get you the compensation you deserve.

When mistakes occur, people can get injured. Careless mistakes while driving, manufacturing products, or even in medical facilities can result in injury or death.

If you or a loved one has suffered an injury or life-altering experience, you may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, time lost from work, and even pain and suffering.

Talking to the Insurance Company

The worst thing you can do for your case is give a recorded statement to the at-fault party’s insurance company. Their goal is to reduce the amount of compensation they owe you or throw out your claim altogether. They are trained to encourage you to answer their questions in a way that would be unfavorable to your case. 

It would be best to tell them to contact your attorney, who will be taking overall communication. You do not want to let them back you into a corner and ruin your case.

Filing Your Case

The statute of limitations is the amount of time you have to file your personal injury case. Personal injury cases can vary in the amount of time you have. For instance, you may not have as much time for a medical malpractice or accident case against a municipality. Generally speaking,  you will have four years to bring your case forward. 

The best thing you can do for your case is to hire an attorney right away, so you do not have to worry about cutting it close to the time limitations. Your attorney will ensure you are adhering to all the time constraints while evidence is collected, witnesses are contacted, and your medical treatment is being completed.
