Being injured in a car accident changes your life forever, and the hours and days immediately after the crash inevitably prove crucial. You want to preserve evidence and prevent potential defendants (and their insurers) from using certain tactical and strategic actions to limit your potential to obtain fair compensation.
Our firm handles both motorcycle injury and motorcycle death cases. We fight for injured victims and their loved ones to receive adequate and fair compensation and provide the insight and resources you need to piece your lives back together.

A jolt to the head suffered through a blow, strike or collision, can change brain activity on a short-term or permanent basis. More than 50,000 people succumb to the ravages of traumatic brain injuries annually across the nation, and thousands of others suffer long term from the effects of TBIs. Complications include loss of memory, changes in personality, loss of vision or hearing and limited motor skills. Our knowledgeable brain injury lawyers seek just outcomes on the behalf of clients who have suffered TBIs.
Commercial truck accidents result in extensive property damage, injuries and even death to the victims and their families. Despite a truck driver’s extensive job training, numerous factors, such as bad weather, pressure to meet deadlines, driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, overtired drivers and unrealistic performance expectations cause terrible crashes. Our truck accident lawyers understand the devastation that clients suffer as a result; and we know how to compel liable drivers, trucking companies and insurers to pay full and fair compensation.
Premises liability cases, including slip and fall accidents, result in millions of injuries each year. These events happen anywhere – you misplace your foot while walking up stairs, or your child slips by the pool, for example – in various settings, such as grocery stores, construction sites or parking lots. These accidents especially victimize the elderly, the young and other vulnerable people. Our premises liability attorneys provide determined representation for clients in these types of claims.
When your family member dies due to the negligence or intentional actions of another party, you feel doubly robbed. You have suffered the unexpected loss of your loved one, and you must face the tragic fact that his or her death was avoidable. Our wrongful death lawyers provide compassionate, strategic and respectful service for the families of victims, and we work diligently to pursue justice and fair compensation.
Property Damage Disputes
In Florida, factors ranging from hurricanes to car accidents damage property and cause millions of dollars worth of destruction. Submitting a property damage claim to an insurance company does not guarantee success. Insurers dispute claims, fail to return calls and order claimants to submit additional paperwork. Our property damage dispute attorneys cut through the frustrating process of dealing with the insurance company, offering clients effective help resolving claims.
Victims of property crimes, assaults or other violent acts caused by negligent security deserve fair compensation. Our attorneys hold individuals and companies liable for failing to protect visitors to properties. For instance, a shopping complex that fails to maintain lights in a parking structure should face liability if a shopper gets assaulted in the parking lot because the darkness provided cover for an assailant. Our negligent security lawyers hold owners and landlords to account for their careless actions.
