Our Legal Services

Over the years, the Florida Personal Injury Law Team has seen accidents and injuries occur in many different settings and situations. We understand the complexities associated with various personal injury matters, and we competently and proudly help clients in the state of Florida with the following:

Auto Accident Cases We Handle

Auto accidents are unfortunate, and sometimes tragic events. Unfortunately, despite the wealth of information regarding driver safety, as well as plain common sense, thousands of auto accidents occur in the state of Florida every single year. In most cases, these accidents are a result of negligence. The sad reality is that auto accidents are not going away, especially with distractions, such as smartphones, readily available at all times. That said, as long as there are accidents, our firm will be there to help those that have been wrongfully injured in them. We handle the following auto accident cases:

Premises Liability Cases We Handle

If you are a property owner, you are required, by law, to ensure that your premises are safe for all who use them. This is true for every property owner. Unfortunately, there are times where property owners will fail to take reasonable action to keep their premises are safe, and often, this results in serious and wrongful injury. If you’ve been hurt on someone else’s property due to no fault of your own, you should have a valid premises liability claim. Our legal team handles injuries that occurred because of the following:

Recovering Compensation

As you know, serious accidents can result in victims sustaining serious physical, financial, and emotional damages. This is why we file personal injury claims on behalf of our clients. As long as we can gather and present sufficient evidence to satisfy the burden of proof in your personal injury claim, we should recover financial compensation on your behalf that will help you cope with your injury. You may receive compensation for two types of damages: economic damages and non-economic damages.

Economic damages are financial damages, such as the cost of surgeries, hospital overnights, in-home care, or even lost past and future wages due to you being unable to return to work. On the other hand, non-economic damages deal with other ways in which an accident impacts a person, such as by causing disfigurement, pain and suffering, the loss of enjoyment of life, and more. Our firm has successfully recovered compensation for countless clients in the past, and we are prepared to put that knowledge and experience to work for you as well.

Do Not Miss Deadlines

As with most legal matters, if you are looking to file a personal injury claim, you must do so within the state’s statute of limitations. In most cases, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Florida is four years, giving you four years from the date your accident occurred to sue. However, this is not always the case. For example, when someone is injured on property owned by a municipality or the state, they will only have three years from the date of their accident to file a Notice of Claim. We understand that sometimes, people would rather wait to see if their injuries heal on their own before filing a claim and getting involved in the legal process. However, it is always best to bring a personal injury claim to the attention of an experienced St. Lucie County personal injury lawyer as soon as possible, as the sooner you speak with us, the sooner we can file your claim and begin fighting for the compensation you need to get back on your feet again.
