We have helped seriously injured victims of all types of personal injury accidents recover tens of millions of dollars for their injuries and damages. We pride ourselves on the fact that for more than twenty-five years we have only represented injured accident victims, not insurance companies, hospitals or large companies in Florida personal injury cases. Although you may be injured in what someone else calls an “accident,” most of the time, “accidents” are due to someone else’s negligence, carelessness or fault and were preventable. We are here to help you get the most amount of money for your damages if you were injured because of someone else’s carelessness, that is, when someone fails to do what they should to prevent you from being hurt.
Because we feel every seriously injured victim should be able to hire an experienced an injury lawyer, one with over 27 years of proven accident trial experience, we help seriously injured accident victims on a contingent fee basis. This means, you will not owe us anything for our attorney’s fees or case costs unless our personal injury attorney in Fort Lauderdale wins your case, by getting you a cash recovery. In most situations in which someone is seriously injured in a car wreck in Broward County, the other party’s insurance company will likely have investigators immediately responding to accident and crash locations seeking witnesses and evidence which will help them and hurt you, the victim. It is for this precise reason that injured accident victims should not delay in seeking an experienced attorney to get legal help needed after your accident and being injured. Seriously injured accident victims need someone working for them, who will hit the ground running to protect your case and your rights, and we are the ones best equipped through our experience and knowledge to best maximize your recovery.

Our Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorney handles all types of personal injury claims across Florida, including:
- car accidents
- trucking accidents
- bicycle accidents
- motorcycle crashes
- negligent or inadequate security cases
- slip and falls
- trip and falls
- medical malpractice cases.
Premises liability accidents include both slip and falls as well as trip and fall accidents. These accidents happen when stores don’t clean up spills, hazards and dangers timely. Under Florida Law, when the operator of a business knows or should know about a dangerous condition, known as a “transitory foreign substance”, and fails to correct it in a reasonable time, they are responsible for the damages their negligence causes. Florida Law requires the injured victim or “invitee” meet the burden of proving the business had as actual or constructive notice of the condition which caused them to fall.Wrongful Death
Wrongful death cases are often preventable and yet love ones are lost due to all types of accidents including medical malpractice and car accidents. Florida Law’s wrongful death act provides various damages for survivors, depending upon if they are a spouse or child. There are specific limitations in medical malpractice cases for adult children of an unmarried parent. All wrongful death cases in Florida are governed by a specific statute of limitations which sets hard parameters for when a survivor must file a lawsuit with the assistance of a personal injury lawyer in Fort Lauderdale against the person or business which is responsible for an accident resulting in a death.Motorcycle Accidents
Motorcycle riders have the same rights as all motorists, but because car and truck drivers are often distracted while driving, motorcycle riders often become seriously injured victims of crashes. While most people have beliefs that motorcycle riders drive dangerously, most motorcycle crashes happen when a car or truck driver is the one who fails to see a motorcycle rider, pulls out into traffic and causes a crash. When another driver is responsible for a motorcycle crash, Florida Law provides that driver is responsible for the crash and the injuries they caused to the motorcyclist.Negligent Security
Negligent security cases happen when businesses or apartment complexes fail to protect their customers and tenants from foreseeable criminal attacks. Florida Law requires stores, banks and supermarkets to be aware of the level of criminal activity in their neighborhood and take reasonable precautions to make their paying customers and tenants safe from likely criminal activity. Such precautions include security lighting, surveillance cameras, fencing, security doors and in many situations, security guards. When a business fails to take those protective actions and a customer or tenant is injured, a Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer can help hold the business responsible for that criminal attack and the damages the victim suffers.
We are dedicated to using our more than twenty-five years of tort lawyer trial experience and resources to aggressively pursue the financial recovery you need and deserve.
