Your physical recovery is often the first focus for most victims of an accident, but your finances can also take a serious hit that may be hard to recover from as well. And if your accident was caused by someone else, you shouldn't have to shoulder that burden. Our Lakeland personal injury attorneys will fight to make them pay and get you the justice - and the financial compensation - that you deserve so you can heal and move on after an accident.

When Can You Seek Compensation?

Florida allows victims of an accident to seek financial compensation through a personal injury lawsuit if they can show that their injuries are the direct result of the negligent or reckless actions of another. In an auto accident, this can include:

  • Drunk driving
  • Distracted driving
  • Speeding
  • Failure to obey traffic signs or signals
  • Breaking other traffic laws
  • Failure to maintain a vehicle for safety
  • And more

In a premises liability case, the focus is on showing that the property owner or manager knew about or should have known about a safety issue and chose not to fix it or warn others about it. This could include anything from a spill to a pothole to a loose handrail.

What Damages Are You Owed?

An accident can have a tremendous impact on your life and on your finances. As such, your settlement needs to provide restitution for all of the costs related to it. Some of the damages that you may be owed in a lawsuit include:

  • Medical bills
  • Future potential medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Future lost wages
  • Compensation for your pain and suffering
  • Punitive damages

The focus of a Lakeland personal injury lawsuit is on getting you back to where you would have been if the accident hadn't happened. We consult with financial and medical experts to ensure that we're able to determine the long term, total costs of your accident. Then we fight to get you that amount. And you don’t pay us until your case is won, so you have no additional financial concerns to worry about.

How Does My Lawyer Prove Fault?

Proving that the other party involved in your accident acted negligently or recklessly isn't always easy, but an experience Lakeland personal injury attorney will use a variety of different tools to do so.

Some of the things we use to show that you deserve compensation include:

  • Witness statements
  • Mobile phone records
  • Accident reports
  • Accident recreations
  • Security camera footage
  • Commercial truck driver logs if applicable
  • Data from onboard data recorders if vehicles have them
  • Driver histories
  • Property safety history if your case is a premises liability one

We gather all applicable evidence and use it to show that you deserve restitution. We'll work to negotiate an out of court settlement, but if needed we'll take the proof to court and fight for your rights in a trial. No matter what is required in your case, our legal team will stand up to the other side and get you what you deserve.

Are You Being Pushed Around?

Big corporations, landowners, insurance companies, and opposing legal teams often take steps to push around victims and make them feel as though they don't have the right to receive any compensation at all. They may do things like:

  • Stall or postpone payments
  • Avoid contacting your or ignore your attempts to contact them
  • Force you to fill out endless, unneeded forms
  • Offer settlements that are lower than you deserve
  • Refuse to pay at all

These tactics are used despite the fact that you're struggling and injured, and it's far too common for victims to feel like they have no allies and no way to get help. But if your injuries are the fault of someone else, you do have rights.

Our legal team is here to be your fierce advocate and our reputation means that you get the respect of the other side - and that their bullying tactics stop. We have a history of standing up for the little guys and getting them what they're owed, and the insurance companies know it.

If you've been injured in an accident, contact our office to speak with a Lakeland personal injury attorney and get a free initial consultation. We fight for the injured, not the powerful, and we'll fight for you too.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
