For nearly a decade, I have diligently advocated for clients in Palm Beach and Martin counties in a variety of personal injury matters, including wrongful death cases.
Experienced legal counselor pursues justice for clients injured in auto accidents
Crashes involving cars, large trucks and other motor vehicles are among the most common reasons for personal injury lawsuits. I am familiar with the tactics insurance companies may use to limit payouts to injured victims in these incidents and am prepared to collect all necessary evidence in order to bolster your claim. When it comes to how much money you can recover, it is important to note that Florida is a comparative negligence state, which means that compensation awards are reduced if injured plaintiffs or decedents are found to have shared any percentage of fault for their own accidents. For example, if a person is shown to have been 25 percent negligent in causing their own injury and the damages total $1,000,000, that plaintiff’s award would be reduced by $250,000. Even if you are determined to be partially responsible for the accident, we can still help you pursue damages for your injuries.
Established attorney represents slip and fall victimsSlip and fall accidents on poorly maintained and dangerous properties can cause many serious injuries that often result in legal claims. I will help you pursue appropriate damages by striving to prove that the property owner caused and/or was aware of the dangerous condition that led to your injuries. The compensation you may receive in a slip and fall case includes reimbursement for medical bills, wages if you have missed time at work, pain and suffering and more. There is generally a four-year statute of limitations from the date of injury for bringing a claim.
Compassionate lawyer works on behalf of wrongful death victimsWrongful death lawsuits in Florida are filed by the personal representatives of decedents on behalf of the victim’s surviving relatives. Family members who can be awarded damages include spouses, children, parents and certain other dependents of the deceased. Compensation in a wrongful death claim may include:
- Medical expenses and funeral costs
- Lost wages and benefits that the departed would have earned throughout their lifetime
- Loss of companionship and support
You typically have two years from the date of death to bring a wrongful death claim, so it is important to act promptly if you are considering bringing a claim. I can guide you through the process.
