We have secured just compensation for victims of accidents including:

Bicycle Accidents

Cyclists have the right to share the road in Florida, and they are entitled to full and unobstructed use of the state’s network of bike lanes. Unfortunately, drivers often put cyclists in harm’s way by driving aggressively, driving while distracted and engaging in various other forms of negligent driving.

Dog Bites

Dog bites can cause serious injuries, and many dog bite victims experience scarring, nerve damage and other forms of permanent trauma. If you or your child was attacked by a friend’s, neighbor’s or stranger’s dog, insurance coverage may be available, and our attorneys can help you recover.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents can leave riders suffering from a broad range of injuries, from severe road rash to brain trauma. We have extensive experience representing riders in Florida in claims for compensation, including several cases in which we have secured multi-million-dollar awards.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians who are injured in motor vehicle accidents can suffer severe physical and psychological trauma. Injured pedestrians’ losses tend to be substantial, and securing just compensation for their medical expenses, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and other losses is essential to their long-term health and financial stability.

Slip, Trip and Fall Accidents

If you or a member of your family has been injured in a fall on someone else’s property in Florida, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Our personal injury lawyers handle slip, trip and fall claims against businesses, government agencies and individual property owners. As with all types of injury claims, it is important to collect all available evidence as soon as possible, so we encourage you to contact us promptly.

Swimming Pool Accidents

Every year drowning tops the list of killers for children throughout Florida. In the sunshine state it’s common for private homes, apartment complexes, neighborhoods, amusement parks and hotels to have swimming pools. Swimming pools, whether in ground or above ground, must be properly supervised and guarded to prevent a child from simply wandering into the pool area. Property owners and homeowners often fail to maintain and supervise their swimming pool, which can lead to serious injury and drowning.

Amusement Park Accidents

Theme parks in Florida offer both residents and visitors adventure and excitement, but there is also great opportunity for unsafe conditions. Park rides are complicated and include heavy machinery. Operator error or mechanical failure can result in a ride going from pretend fear to real fear. Poorly maintained grounds can cause you or a loved one to slip, trip or fall. If you or a family member were injured at an amusement park in Florida, our injury lawyers can help.

ATV & Four Wheeler Accidents

ATVs can move at speeds of 65 mph. An accident at that speed can cause catastrophic injuries, typically to the face, neck, back and limbs. ATVs, “quads,” and four wheelers are off road recreational vehicles typically driven on dusty dirt roads, mud pits and gravel. The rough terrain combined with minimal standard safety features increases the risk of a serious accident. ATV personal injury cases can stem from a negligent property owner to a faulty product. 

Elevator & Escalator Accidents

Elevators and escalators are essential to most commercial construction projects. The design elements are taken for granted and expected to work properly and function as intended. Because they are so common throughout Florida shopping plazas, hotels, hospitals, airports and universities, it can be easy to forget that elevators and escalators are equipment that must be regularly inspected and maintained to prevent accidents and injuries.

Other Serious Accidents

From construction accidents to golf car accidents, we have successfully represented clients in numerous other types of cases as well. Regardless of what happened, if you have been injured and would like to speak with a personal injury lawyer, we encourage you to contact us for a free initial consultation.
