We fight for every dollar our clients are entitled to for lost income, pain and suffering, and the reduced quality of life they and their families face in the future. In the event the accident leads to the death of a loved one, we are also ready to seek full and fair compensation for financial damages related to the fatal injuries, including loss of companionship.
Why Does Double Certification Matter?
Attorneys at our firm are double board-certified in civil trial and business litigation. We are among fewer than 100 lawyers in Florida who have earned double certification.
Cases involving catastrophic or fatal injuries are particularly complex due to the medical issues involved, as well as the importance of determining the full extent of monetary damages over a lifetime. When necessary, we work with a network of independent professionals to ensure that we build the strongest case possible for court, in the event the negligent party will not come prepared with a reasonable settlement.
Our lawyers have a successful record in cases such as:
Burn injuries: A burn injury can range from mild to severe. Moderate to severe cases typically include burns that are second or third degree. These burns often cover large areas of the body and will require multiple surgeries, skin grafts and physical therapy to recover. Even with skin grafts and plastic surgery, severe burns are likely to result in significant scarring. This can have a negative impact on your confidence, self-image and, ultimately, your quality of life.
Spinal cord injuries: Mild spinal cord injuries may result in muscle weakness, but often strength can be regained through extensive physical therapy. In more severe cases, however, a spinal cord injury can result in partial or total paralysis. Paralysis may include just the lower half of the body, known as paraplegia, or paralysis may include everything below the neck, known as quadriplegia. In either case, a spinal cord injury will likely require multiple surgeries, extended hospital stays and physical therapy. If paralyzed, you will need either a standard or motorized wheelchair. Most people have to make modifications to their homes and vehicles, and some victims may also require long-term care.
Traumatic brain injuries: No two brain injuries are alike, so they can be difficult to accurately diagnose. In some cases, symptoms may not appear for days or even several weeks after the accident, making a diagnosis that much more difficult. Symptoms to look for in potential brain injury victims include:
- Changes in mood, behaviors and sleep patterns
- Frequent nausea or vomiting
- Problems with coordination, walking or speaking
- Drainage from the nose or ears
A TBI can cause permanent damage, including lasting changes in personality, motor skills and more.
“Severe injuries can have lifelong consequences for you and your family. Our attorneys will fight to ensure you are appropriately compensated for your injuries.”— Attorney Thomas C. Saunders
A Note About Wrongful Death
When the negligence or misconduct of another party results in fatal injury, we will ensure that party is held responsible. We will also seek compensation for outstanding medical bills associated with the injury, in addition to the loss of income for your family, and compensation for funeral expenses. Some common scenarios that result in wrongful death include motor vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, slip-and-fall accidents and workplace accidents.
