Bradenton Personal Injury Attorneys

Contact a personal injury attorney in Bradenton.Personal injury law is based on the idea that, in many situations, you owe a duty of care to others. For instance, when you get behind the wheel of your car, you owe a duty to others on or near the road to drive as a reasonable, prudent person would drive. So, you need to make sure that your car is in proper working order, and you need to avoid dangerous behavior such as speeding, running through a red light or driving while distracted or impaired by alcohol or drugs.

If you recently suffered serious injury in Bradenton because another person, company or even a government agency breached the duty of care owed to you, then you have the right pursue full and fair compensation. It will be important to seek help from an experienced Bradenton personal injury law firm that has the skill, resources and the drive that it takes to fight for the justice you deserve.

  • Thoroughly investigate your case – As a law firm with more than 20 years of experience with handling personal injury cases in Bradenton and throughout Florida, we know how to handle even the most complex investigations. While you focus on your recovery, we will get to work on collecting evidence such as witness statements, medical records, photos, video and other digital evidence.
  • Carefully calculate the damages you are owed – We will consult with medical professionals about the nature and extent of your injuries. We want to address your past medical bills as well as any other injury-related bills you will face as you move forward with your recovery. We will also determine the amount you have lost in income (and will likely lose in the future) as well as all other funds you deserve.
  • Deal firmly with insurance companies – The last thing you need to worry about is talking with the insurance companies after a serious accident. We will handle all communication with the insurers and their lawyers, including settlement negotiations. We will always stand up for you and pursue the maximum amount, and we will provide sound legal advice about any settlement offers you receive.
  • Take your case to trial – Most personal injury claims in Bradenton can be resolved through settlement. However, if the insurance company refuses to accept liability and/or challenges damages, our highly skilled litigators will be ready to fight for you in the courtroom.

In other words, you will not pay a fee to us unless we obtain compensation for you. Our fee will reflect an agreed-upon percentage of any settlement or court award we secure for you.
