A Serious Accident Needs Serious Allies 


Did you know that more than 2.5 million pedestrians are injured in accidents involving motorists every single year? That's a huge number, and many of those accidents occur here in Florida. When they do, you could be left with serious injuries that can take a long time to recover from. Making matters worse is the fact that your accident could lead to large medical bills and expenses that you struggle to deal with. If your injuries were caused by the reckless, negligent actions of someone else, you shouldn't shoulder those burdens alone. Our legal team will fight to get you what you deserve and make those responsible for your accident pay

Why Do You Need An Attorney?

The simple answer here is that without an attorney representing your case, you will likely be unable to obtain the kind of financial compensation that you are really entitled to. And as a result of this, you could be left struggling financially for years after your accident - all due to the actions of someone else. Consider the following

  • The other side often uses a variety of bullying tactics to prevent you from getting what you are owed. With an attorney on your side, those tactics stop and you get respect.

  • It's common for the injured to accept settlements that are less than they deserve just because they think it's the best they can do. Your lawyer will fight to make sure this doesn't happen.

  • You'll get your money faster in almost all cases. With an attorney on your side, you can rest easy knowing that your case will be closed faster and you can move on more quickly.

  • Since an attorney is handling the process of getting you what you're owed, you don't have to worry about anything other than physically healing after your injuries.

  • We work with experts to determine what a truly fair settlement amount is, and then we fight to get it for you. The bottom line is that we get you more money so you aren't left with any financial burdens after your injuries.

In short, with our lawyers on your side, you'll get your money quickly, be likely to get a larger settlement, and be able to focus on your physical healing. We take care of everything from start to finish - you only need to sign documents on occasion. This alleviates huge amounts of stress from your shoulders. And we don't charge you a dime until we win your case - there's no need to worry about legal fees

What Is Fault And Am I Owed Compensation?

Fault refers to nothing more than who is responsible for the accident that led to your injuries. Under Florida law, you can seek financial compensation if you can show that the other side acted in a negligent or reckless manner. Since pedestrians almost always have the right of way, fault is generally straightforward to prove in these cases. It's even easier if other factor are involved such as

  • Speeding
  • Texting while driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Ignoring signs and signals

Still, it's important to have a lawyer on your side to show that you are owed restitution. The reason is simple - the other side will likely have a powerful legal team representing their interests. They'll fight to avoid paying anything and may even try to say that you are at fault

Florida is a comparative negligence state, which means that even if you are partially to blame for your injuries, you could still receive a settlement. For instance, if a jury found that you were 20 percent liable for what happened, you will be entitled to 80% of the full settlement you could have received

No matter what you're being told by the other side, you have rights. Don't feel like you have no options when you're hurt and struggling to recover. We stand up to the powerful and fight to get the injured what they deserve

How Is Fault Proven?


Our lawyers understand that getting you your money is important, and we use a variety of steps to get you what you're owed.

Some of the tools and resources we utilize to get you compensation include the following:

  • Security camera footage
  • Witness statements
  • Accident reports
  • Mobile phone records
  • Black box data recorder info
  • Driver histories

Proving fault can take time, and could involve numerous steps. We have a long history of doing so, and we know what is needed to show that your accident left you injured due to the recklessness of another

Our lawyers know that this time is difficult for those injured, and that's why we take the burdens off your shoulders and handle complex cases for you. We'll fight to get you what you deserve so you can heal and move on from your injuries

What Damages Can I Pursue?

An injury involving a pedestrian and a motorist can leave you seriously injured. After all, the size and weight of a vehicle are far beyond a person's, and pedestrians have little protecting them if they're injured in these accidents.

Your injuries can be very extensive and include a wide range of things including

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Permanent disability
  • Death

These injuries can carry heavy medical costs, and they will also potentially cause long-term expenses that can impact your life in a huge way. There is no way to know over the internet just what your case could pay in terms of damages, but understanding a few of the key things that make a fair settlement offer could help

  • Medical bills
  • Future potential medical bills
  • Medications and medical supplies
  • Long term care costs
  • Lost wages due to missing work
  • Future estimated lost wages
  • Loss of earning potential
  • Loss of financial factors due to inability to continue working

These are known as compensatory damages, and it's vital that your settlement provide you the right amount for them. For example, if you are suddenly unable to work in the capacity you once did, it can reduce your earning potential for the rest of your life. You should receive compensation for this

But many insurance companies and legal teams for the other side will often fight to try to give you less than you deserve or offer settlements that are far lower than you're entitled to. Our lawyers fight to make sure that this doesn't happen to you, and we make sure you get what you're owed. We consult with financial and medical professionals to determine the true cost of your injuries, and then we don’t stop fighting for you until you get your money.

The lawyers of Goldman Babboni Fernandez & Walsh have the firm belief that for the injured, getting justice pays.


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.
