We believe that the costs associated with hiring a lawyer shouldn’t prevent any serious personal injury victim from obtaining sound legal counsel. Because of this, our law firm handles all Sarasota personal injury claims on a contingency fee basis. This means there are no out of pocket expenses and you only owe attorney’s fees if we settle your claim or win a favorable verdict in court.
Personal injury laws are not designed not to punish the defendant, but to ensure that seriously injured victims receive compensation that can make up for their reduced quality of life. Unfortunately, the modern legal system is incredibly complex, and many Sarasota injury victims are unprepared and unsuccessful in their efforts to gain compensation without an experienced personal injury attorney.
The physical and financial damages of a serious injury can have a lifetime of consequences for the victim and their family. It’s not uncommon for personal injury victims to suffer from a significant loss of income, reduced earning capacity, substantial long-term medical expenses and continued physical pain, all resulting in a reduced quality of life for everyone involved.
In serious personal injury cases, experience as a trial attorney is critically important. The skill, experience and financial resources of the personal injury lawyer you choose, can greatly impact the outcome of your case and the amount of compensation that you receive.
Finding justice in today’s legal system can be extremely frustrating and not all personal injury law firms are created equal. The hiring of an injury lawyer is an important decision that should not be based completely upon television and radio advertisements.

It is common for injury victims to use the terms claim and lawsuit interchangeably. In truth, they are very different processes, each with their own set of hurdles to cross. If you’ve been injured and aren’t sure if a claim or lawsuit is the best option for your set of circumstances, please contact our Sarasota personal injury lawyers today. We offer free consultations to discuss the details of your case.
Injured victims file claims with the at-fault party’s insurance company, as well as their own. The purpose of a claim is to seek compensation for the victim’s financial losses, related to their physical injuries, lost wages and property damage. During the claim process, there are no formal court proceedings or judges involved. If a fair settlement can’t be reached, the injury victim may need to file a lawsuit to seek fair compensation.
Unlike a claim, filing a lawsuit is the formal process to seek compensation for damages. The lawsuit may be filed against the negligent at-fault party or their insurance company, sometimes both. In many cases, the at-fault party or their insurance company will make significant attempts to settle the lawsuit before the case goes to court. If a fair settlement can’t be reached, the case will go to trial with the outcome being decided by a jury.
