Our attorneys are committed to advocating for our clients and pursuing the compensation to which they are legally entitled.
We can review your case for free, helping you understand your legal right to pursue compensation and explain your options for recovering the compensation you deserve. As a part of handling your case, we will look into your accident and build a strong case by:

- Surveying and taking photographs of the accident scene
- Reviewing your medical records
- Working with an accident reconstruction specialist and other experts

Wrongful Death Damages
We also take on wrongful death cases in Sarasota.

This includes compensation for your expenses and losses such as burial and funeral expenses. Call 941-315-4404 for your free consultation with a member of our team.
We Have a Limited Time to Hold the At-Fault Driver Liable
Under Florida law, we only have a limited time to file a personal injury lawsuit try to hold the at-fault driver liable for your damages. While the state’s statute of limitations does give us four years to take legal action after a car accident, we need to get to work on your case as soon as possible to ensure we can recover all possible evidence and build a strong case in the event we need to go to court.
Reach out to our team as soon as possible after your accident. Call us in the days or weeks following your accident or as soon as your injuries stabilize. We can also talk to a family member of an accident victim if they cannot call us because of their treatment or injuries.
