Since 1991, our Fort Lauderdale, car accident attorneys have handled cases in Florida involving:

  • Freeway / Highway crashes. Because of the high rate of speed and the number of cars that can be involved, highway accidents can cause life-threatening injuries that must be dealt with as soon as possible. Sometimes roads are not constructed as they should or have defects that require correction. These may sometimes be the cause of serious accidents. In our offices we have handled cases involving defective roadways and hazards causing vehicular accidents. We have also successfully handled numerous cases involving pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcycle drivers who were seriously injured as a result of the negligence of another.
  • 18 wheeler accidents. When truck drivers make a mistake, the results can be catastrophic. We know how to skillfully pursue claims against truckers and trucking companies who may be liable for allowing improperly trained drivers, or defective trucking rigs on the road or for creating unsafe conditions for truck-drivers such as imposing log requirements which require truckers to drive without sufficient rest or to drive at unlawful rates of speed in order to comply with unreasonable requirements putting at risk the safety of other drivers on the road.
  • Hit and run accidents. Whenever you are involved in an accident, you have a duty to stop your vehicle, and assess the situation. Unfortunately, not everyone follows this rule. If you are injured by a hit and run driver, we can help you evaluate whether there is insurance coverage and an available legal remedy to obtain compensation for your injuries.
  • Uninsured / underinsured motorist claims. The state of Florida requires all drivers to carry a minimum amount of insurance. Sometimes the minimum is not enough to compensate you for your losses. When this happens, we can help to determine whether you have an available legal remedy available to you under an underinsured (or uninsured) motorist claim.

Our office also handles watercraft accidents, including boating accidents, jet ski accidents, and cruise ship accidents.

Not all deaths are considered wrongful. However, they should not go unreported and should be evaluated by our experienced wrongful death lawyer for merits and to evaluate all appropriate legal remedies available.
