View our frequently asked questions below or call our offices today at (239) 603-6913 for answers to more specific questions pertaining to your particular case.

The person that caused the accident sent me a settlement offer. Should I accept it?

Do not sign anything without first speaking to a lawyer. It is best to avoid speaking with anyone except your lawyer at this time, as it is likely that the responsible party is trying to find a quick and easy way to get out the legal consequences they are facing.

Can I sue the police for putting false or wrong information into a police report?

For cases of this nature, we recommend hiring a traffic ticket lawyer. He or she can investigate the details of the situation and help you pursue legal action against the police for an inaccurate report.

Is it worth it to go to court to ask for more money if the driver at fault doesn't cover all of my medical expenses?

You need to have a meeting with your attorney who can educate you on why the insurance company is taking such an aggressive position on their offer. You can discuss the possibilities of taking the case to trial with your lawyer or see if they are able to get a larger amount to settle the case from the insurance company.

Can I sue my child's school for medical negligence?

If the issue was minor, the damages are probably not enough to substantiate a lawsuit. However, the nurse could be reported to the proper administration to make sure it does not happen again. If you feel that the situation was more extreme and could justify a lawsuit, feel free to call us for our professional opinion.

Do I need an attorney for a car accident claim?

Having a lawyer on your side will ensure that you are not taken advantage of by insurance companies or by the at-fault driver. Our experienced legal team can investigate all the details of your case and help you compile all the necessary evidence.

We don't want to see innocent individuals take the fall for an accident that was not their fault, nor do we want you to be left with financial burdens for your medical expenses. We can help you navigate the complexities of various insurance policies and advocate for the compensation you deserve.

When should I file a personal injury claim?

You should seek the advice of a legal professional as soon as possible if you are considering filing a claim. There is a limited amount of time that you can wait before filing a claim. This is called the "statute of limitations." In Florida, you typically have four years to file a claim for physical injury. However, some injuries such as wrongful death and medical malpractice have shorter deadlines.

This is why you should consult with an attorney at our firm to make sure you understand the statute of limitations for your particular claim.
