Wrongful Death

People should not be dying because of the recklessness of others. Wrongful death is simply tragic and always preventable. Negligence is cause for liability in Florida, which means that families of victims can sue for damages from the person responsible. No amount of compensation can return a loved one to you, but it does get justice for him or her and can protect you and your family from financial distress.

Head and Traumatic Brain Injury

Brian injuries or closed head injuries happen to over 2 million people a year in the U.S. For those affected by a brain injury, many who survive will have lifelong disabilities that require on-going care including vocational rehabilitation and cognitive therapy. The Brain Trauma Foundation says the leading causes of brain injuries are motor vehicle accidents, falls, and being hit by or against other objects.

Back and Spinal Cord Injuries

If you have an accident and suffer a back or spinal cord injury, it can become permanent and devastating. The spinal cord is essential in controlling your sensation, strength and bodily functions. Over 300,000 Americans are living with spinal cord injuries and the leading cause of these injuries are automobile and motorcycle accidents.
