What Personal Injury Cases Do We Handle in North Port?

Florida law allows victims to recover compensation for a wide range of injuries. The key is whether someone else was responsible. Here is a short list of some of the cases we handle in North Port and the surrounding communities:

  • Slip and fall injuries
  • Nursing home negligence or abuse
  • Car crashes

  • Uninsured motorist collisions
  • Brain and spine injury claims
  • Motorcycle crashes

While every case is unique, our success stories speak for themselves.

Why Get Help from a Personal Injury Lawyer in North Port?

Two of the toughest things for an injury victim are paying for medical care and dealing with the insurance claim. By hiring a North Port personal injury attorney at Buckman & Buckman, you won’t have to worry about those issues and, instead, you can focus on your healing and recovery. Our firm will aggressively pursue compensation on your behalf by taking steps such as:

  • Thoroughly reviewing the facts of your case. We will start by investigating your case to figure out what happened and why. Depending on the type of case you have, we may need to dig into public records, pull financial statements, interview witnesses or subpoena information from witnesses or other parties. Once we have the evidence we need to support your claim, it becomes much harder for an insurance company to deny payment.
  • Protecting you from unfair practices. Insurance companies are notorious for getting victims to give recorded statements against their interests or to sign away their rights. By putting our team in charge of the negotiations, you do not have to worry about dealing with the insurance company.
  • Ensuring you get quality medical care. Our firm has been handling personal injury claims in North Port and throughout Sarasota County for more than 20 years. We can work closely with local healthcare providers to get you the care you need and deserve.
  • Fighting for you all the way to trial. The vast majority of cases today are settled before they go to trial. For this reason, many lawyers have never seen a courtroom. Some large firms handle cases from hundreds of miles away without ever meeting their clients in person. At Buckman & Buckman, our attorneys litigate cases in court and out of court. If your case must go to trial, you can count on us to fight for you and pursue the maximum amount for you and your family.
  • Tying up all loose ends. Regardless of whether your case ends in a verdict or settlement, you may have many other issues to resolve such as health insurance liens, government liens (Medicaid/Medicare) and other outstanding debts. We often work with providers to reduce bills and structure settlements so our clients recover the maximum amount.

What Types of Personal Injury Compensation Can You Pursue?

Every case is different. Many factors will determine whether you are eligible to recover compensation and the amount of compensation that you are entitled to receive.

  • Medical bills (including surgery, hospitalization and reimbursement for adaptive devices or modifications to your home)
  • Other out-of-pocket expenses
  • Lost income and reduction in your future earning ability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and anxiety
  • Punitive damages (in extreme cases)
  • Wrongful death damages (if you lost a loved one due to negligence).

Our firm will review all of your medical records, work records and other evidence to determine the nature and extent of your injuries and their effect on your ability to earn a living and enjoy life as you did before the accident. We may also consult with experts in areas such as life-care planning or vocational rehabilitation. Our goal will be to determine all damages you are entitled to receive and to identify all available sources of compensation.
