What our clients say about us…

Determining Fault In a Port St. Lucie Personal Injury Accident

Determining fault in Port St. Lucie personal injury accidents can be complicated, especially if more than one person is involved.

You will need to prove duty of care, breach of duty, and negligence that resulted in your injury. However, this can be challenging to do on your own. An experienced personal injury lawyer can help you determine who is actually at fault for your accident.

We will make sure that we identify the correct party and prevent their legal team from painting you as the at-fault party. Our lawyers know that even if you were partially at fault for the accident, you are still legally within your rights to claim damages from those who shared responsibility.

The Potential Impact of Comparative Fault In Florida

Florida is a comparative fault state. The law can be a bit confusing to understand if you’ve never heard the term before. Comparative negligence laws allow victims to sue for damages even if they were partially at fault for the accident that led to their injury. You can collect damages, minus the amount that you were responsible for.

For example, if you were found 10% at fault for an accident, you can collect 90% of the damages awarded.

A Port St. Lucie Personal Injury Attorney Provides Effective Representation


Insurance companies only care about their bottom line, even if it means denying claims from people who need their help. That’s why personal injury attorneys exist. We support our clients, protect their rights, and ensure those that harmed them are held responsible for their actions.

A Port St. Lucie personal injury attorney can provide effective representation to help you collect maximum compensation. We work tirelessly collecting evidence and pursuing litigation against the at-fault party.

While you focus on healing from your injuries, we will do the hard work to recover damages for your losses.

Reasons to Choose Our Law Firm As Your Personal Injury Attorneys

We’ve been around for more than 30 years and we aren’t going anywhere. We’ve taken on big corporations and insurance companies to protect the rights of our clients and those big companies know exactly who we are. They know we won’t hesitate to take your case to trial and are more willing to negotiate because of it.

Our reputation of aggressive representation is why over 40% of our new cases come from referring attorneys and past client referrals.

Since 1985, we’ve recovered more than $2.5 billion for our clients. You can rest assured that we will earn maximum compensation for your injuries.

We only get paid if you win.

We know that you have lost a lot financially dealing with unexpected medical bills and time off work. That’s why our attorneys work on a contingency fee structure.

Our personal injury attorneys don’t get paid until they win your case. That means there’s no risk when you decide to work with our expert Port St. Lucie Fl personal injury firm. We ensure that you get the best representation without putting yourself in more debt.

Only collecting payment once we win your case gives us a greater incentive to get you the maximum compensation.

We prepare every case for trial.

Insurance companies will offer small settlement offers that barely cover your economic damages rather than providing you with the amount you rightfully deserve. Even though their job is to pay out the money, they are more interested in protecting their bottom line.

That is why we prepare every personal injury case for trial from day one. We create a strong case while the evidence is fresh to give you the best chance to gain maximum compensation.

We treat clients like family.

After suffering a tragic injury, the last thing you need is a cold, impersonal legal team who won’t answer your calls. With our firm, our clients are like family. We know that our family needs compassion and respect through this difficult time. Our team is happy to answer questions, speak with clients, and keep them informed of every development in the case.

We’re fiercely protective of our clients and are willing to fight for their rights as if they were our family.

We earn maximum compensation for your personal injuries.

We believe that all victims should get the maximum compensation for their physical and emotional injuries from the insurance company of the negligent party. 

However, insurance companies will try to offer you less than you deserve. We won’t stand for your suffering being diminished by their low compensation offer.

Common Types of Personal Injury Claims


Broken Bones

Broken bones can be complicated to heal. Severe fractures may require surgery to realign. It can take months to recover from a broken bone and years to rebuild strength to what it once was.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Head injuries can take years to heal and the victim may continue to experience lifelong complications. Common side effects include headaches, seizures, loss of communication skills or memory, comas, and death. These can greatly change your quality of life and prevent you from living as you once did.

Burns

Burns don’t just come from fires. You can experience chemical burns, thermal radiation, cold burns, and even electrical burns. The varying degrees of burns will require different levels of medical care. Some can require surgery and skin grafts.

Others will never heal, leaving the victim permanently disfigured.

Neck and Back Injuries

Neck and back injuries are very common in personal injury claims. They are caused by an overextension or strain to the spine and neck. If they are not properly treated, the swelling can lead to more severe injuries.

You should always seek medical treatment if you are experiencing pain in your neck and back after a personal injury. There is a high risk of limited mobility and paralysis if you don’t.

Soft Tissue Damage

When ligaments and tendons stretch too far, they can get soft tissue damage. This injury can cause chronic pain that may become permanent if you do not properly treat it.

Dog Bites

When dog owners are not vigilant in controlling their animals, their pet may lash out in fear or aggression. Dog attacks often cause open wounds that are prone to infection.

Lacerations

Lacerations or cuts on the skin can be minor or severe. Small cuts may not even require a bandage. Severe cuts can damage the internal tissue, leading to infection, amputation, or death.

Personal Injury Questions and Answers

Why do I need a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer will protect your rights from greedy insurance companies. They ensure that you receive maximum compensation and front the cost for your claim so you don’t have to.

If you have been injured due to someone’s negligence, you deserve justice. 

To seek that justice, you need the best defense possible. Hire our Port St. Lucie FL personal injury attorneys today to give your case its best chance.

What do I do when an insurance company calls me about my injury?

If an insurance company – either yours or the other party’s – calls you about your personal injury, be careful. They are not calling to check on your well-being. They are calling to try to find a reason to deny your claim so they can keep the money. That means that while you are on the phone, anything you say may be manipulated against you. Even saying you are “doing well” when they ask how you are could hurt your case.

Prevent them from denying your claim, minimizing your compensation, or attributing blame to you by not speaking with the insurance company. Tell them that you will have your lawyer contact them. Even if you don’t have a lawyer, you can find one after the call who can represent your rights and protect your claim for damages.

Should I call the police at the scene of a personal injury?

You do not always need the police at the scene of a personal injury. Some situations, like car crashes, may require the police to maintain the scene and redirect traffic. Others, like slip and falls or medical malpractice, may not warrant calling the police.

Ultimately, you will need to decide if you think the police could provide any assistance at the scene. In most cases, they would not be able to help with a slip-and-fall or medical malpractice injury.

Make this determination on your own. You don’t always need a police report to file a personal injury claim.

What is a slip-and-fall in Florida?

The term “slip-and-fall” is a term for when a person slips, falls, or trips while on another person’s property due to a hazard that they were negligent in dealing with. Most slip-and-falls are a type of premises liability since the property owner did not clear the walkways of hazards that could injure guests or patrons.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit after a personal injury?

In Florida, you have a statute of limitations of four years after the date of a personal injury. This means that you must file your lawsuit with the court during this period. Otherwise, the court system will likely not hear your claim. 

In rare cases, your personal injury attorney may be able to get you an extension; however, the best practice is to file on time. If you miss the deadline, you won’t be able to collect the damages that are rightfully owed to you.
