About Jacksonville

Jacksonville is one of the northernmost cities in Florida. It is also the biggest city in Florida, with a population rapidly approaching one million. Situated near the Atlantic Coast and in close proximity to several well-known beaches, Jacksonville is both a popular tourist destination and a permanent destination for transplants seeking to take advantage of all that the city has to offer.

Since the St. Johns River bisects Jacksonville on its way to the Atlantic, the city is also a hub for recreational boaters and maritime businesses. Boaters passing through Jacksonville will see MOSH and several museums along the river’s banks, and they will pass by the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve and the Jacksonville Zoo.

What To Expect When You Choose Our Firm for Your Personal Injury Case in Jacksonville

When you have a personal injury claim, recovering just compensation requires a clear and comprehensive understanding of how to assert your legal rights. It also requires dedication. Filing a successful personal injury claim is not easy, and you will need to work closely with your lawyer throughout the process. With this in mind, here is what you can expect when you choose our firm for your personal injury case in Jacksonville:

1. Our Personal Injury Lawyers Will Conduct a Prompt and Thorough Investigation

With any type of personal injury claim, a key first step is to conduct a prompt and thorough investigation. It is essential to collect the available evidence before it disappears—whether in the form of skid marks, damaged personal property, surveillance camera footage, medical records or anything else. Once we have collected the available evidence, we will conduct a thorough assessment of your legal rights and determine what claim (or claims) we can file on your behalf.

2. We Will Help Make Sure You Get the Treatment You Need

When recovering from a traumatic accident, it is extremely important to make sure you get the treatment you need. We work with many health care providers in the Jacksonville area who specialize in treating victims of vehicle collisions, falls, medical malpractice and other types of accidents. We can help you get appropriate treatment, and we can work with your doctor to build your case for just compensation. This is an extremely important part of the process; and, if you have not sought treatment already, we strongly recommend that you contact us right away so that we can provide you with a referral.

3. We Will Calculate All of Your Recoverable Losses

In most cases, individuals who suffer serious injuries due to other people’s negligence and due to product defects are entitled to full compensation for their injuries under Florida law. Our Jacksonville lawyers will work closely with you to understand the physical, financial and emotional impacts of your injuries, and we will use our experience to ensure that we are seeking maximum compensation for your injury-related losses. This includes compensation for your medical bills, lost earnings, physical scarring, emotional trauma, pain and suffering, and other types of financial and non-financial harm.

4. We Will Work to Quickly Negotiate a Fair Settlement

Settling your personal injury claim allows you to move on as quickly as possible. But, settling too soon is not a mistake that you can afford to make. Our Jacksonville lawyers will negotiate for a fair settlement on your behalf. We will make sure you understand what constitutes a fair offer, and we will help you decide when (and if) it makes sense to accept an offer from the insurance companies.  

5. We Will Take Your Case to Court if Necessary

If the insurance companies refuse to make an acceptable settlement offer, we will take your personal injury case in Jacksonville to court. Our lawyers have won numerous substantial verdicts, and we will use our trial experience to fight for just compensation on your behalf in court if necessary.

FAQs: Hiring an Injury Lawyer to Represent You in Jacksonville

How Do I Know If I Should Talk to a Personal Injury Lawyer?

It isn’t always easy to tell whether you need a lawyer. You might not know exactly what happened, and you might not know if you simply need to deal with your insurance company on your own. But, these are not questions you should leave unanswered. If you have any questions about what you need to do or whether you have a claim, we strongly encourage you to contact us for a free consultation.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Lawyer?

We handle all cases in Jacksonville on a contingency fee basis. As a result, it costs nothing out-of-pocket to hire our team of lawyers and legal professionals. If we help you recover just compensation, then our legal fees will be calculated as a percentage of your settlement or verdict.

How Much Can I Expect to Recover?

The amount you can expect to recover depends on the unique details of your case. As a result, in order to answer this question, we will need to learn more about your situation. How much are your expenses? Are you unable to work? How else has the accident impacted your life? The answers to these questions (among many others) will all factor into the value of your claim.

How Do I Choose a Lawyer to Represent Me?

There are several factors to consider when choosing a lawyer in Jacksonville. Past results are important, and so are client testimonials. But, ultimately, you need to choose a lawyer who makes you feel confident and comfortable—and this starts with scheduling a free consultation.
