Are You Owed?
Florida law states that those who are injured due to the reckless or negligent actions of someone else will have the right to seek compensation for their injuries through a personal injury lawsuit. Reckless or negligent actions can mean a lot of different things, including:
- Drunk driving
- Failure to properly maintain a vehicle for safe operation
- Texting while driving or other distracted driving
- Failure to obey all traffic laws
- Failure to maintain a safe property or working environment
- And more

What Damages Do You Receive?
Every accident and its injuries will be different. As such, there's no way to simply say what kind of a settlement you can expect to receive in a Port Charlotte personal injury lawsuit. However, a few types of damages make most settlements:
- Lost wages
- Future lost wages
- Medical bills
- Future lost wages
- Compensation for pain and suffering
- Personal property repair costs
- Punitive damages used to punish the other party
Your attorney will review your case and consult with economic or medical professionals to get a clear picture as to what the long-term costs will be. This way, you aren't left with any of the financial burden that comes from your accident. And since we don't collect our fees until you get paid, you don't have to worry about how to pay us.
How Does Your Attorney Prove Fault?
Your Port Charlotte personal injury attorney has decades of experience and will put that to work for you. Some of the ways we work to prove that you deserve compensation include:
- Mobile phone data
- Driver histories
- Accident reports
- Witness statements
- History of injuries at a property
- Security camera footage
Each accident has its own variables, and your legal team will put all of the evidence together to show that your injuries were the fault of someone else. We then use this info to negotiate a settlement that is right for you and your situation. If we can't reach an agreement, we have no problem heading to court and fighting for your rights there. We're not only a fierce advocate for your rights, we're also tireless in our battle to get you justice. No matter what it takes, we get you what you deserve.
Getting Pushed Around Insurance companies and legal teams for the other side are famous in the industry for pushing around the victims of accidents. They'll use a variety of tactics including:
- Stalling or ignoring you
- Lowball settlement offers
- Refusing to pay at all and denying your claims
Insurance companies do this because they know they can bully those who are injured. And it only adds to your burden. Our legal team has our own reputation - one of standing up for our clients and fighting the big companies and lawyers that bully around victims of accidents. Our presence alone is enough to inspire them to negotiate fairly and will get you the respect that you deserve.
If you're injured in an accident, don't let the big companies push you around. Contact our legal team today to speak with a Port Charlotte personal injury attorney. We'll fight for you and make them pay.
