Attorney Orlando, FL
Erick Salazar is a personal injury attorney focused on auto accidents and slip and fall cases in the Farah and Farah Orlando office. Erick is uniquely suited for these types of cases because of his experience working for insurance companies and later litigating against them. This unique perspective allows Erick to put together a winning strategy to seek the maximum compensation available in every case he undertakes.
Advocating for Those that Can’t Advocate for Themselves
What really excites me about working for personal injury victims is having the ability to advocate for those that can’t advocate for themselves or who are too afraid of engaging the legal system. I’m a first generation immigrant who came to the U.S. when I was 8 years old. My parents didn’t speak any English so I represented them from a very early age. This experience taught me that I wanted to stand up for people that couldn’t otherwise stand up for themselves.
Driven to Win No Matter What
When I was in law school at Barry University, I competed in a lot of different team trial competitions. Being competitive is just in my nature and it drives me to push myself to do the very best I can no matter what. In one competition, my team spent a crazy amount of time figuring out the engineering process behind a product liability case. We ended up winning the competition based on all the work we put in. That experience stuck with me as I worked my way through law school, first as a law clerk for insurance companies and finally as a litigating attorney.
Understanding the ins and outs of a case takes a lot of research that some law firms don’t want to take on. Instead, they seek a quick settlement. That’s just not how we do things at Farah and Farah. We’re all on the same team to get the best possible outcome for our clients no matter how much work we have to put in to get there.
Big Firm, Personal Attention
I love that Farah and Farah is extremely team-oriented. From my very first experience with the firm, I have been made to feel like I am a valued member of the team. This stands at odds with most big law firms out there. From Chuck and Eddie down, our entire organization is focused on one thing—doing what’s right for our clients. That means answering calls and emails promptly, getting cases up to date, focusing on priorities, and following through with everything I promise my clients in the very first consultation.
When Insurance Companies Go Low, I Fight Even Harder
One case that’s really stuck with me was with an elderly client who was hit by a truck. He ended up in a coma and would spend weeks in the hospital recovering. This client’s entire life was turned upside down in a minute. The insurance company offered her close to nothing for her severe injuries. She needed an advocate, and my team was able to maximize her recovery and get her the fair and proper value of her claim. In the cases I see, people are legitimately hurt but the insurance giants, who have all the money in the world, don’t want to pay what’s fair.
These cases mean the most to me because I’ve worked on the insurance side. Working for clients who are living paycheck to paycheck and whose lives were changed by the incident makes me dig deep and do absolutely everything in my power to get them the justice they deserve.
“Working alongside Erick, you cannot help but gravitate towards his passion for victim advocacy. His experience both working with insurance companies and now fighting against them gives him an incredible advantage for creating strategies that consistently achieve positive results for clients. Hands down, Erick is one of the hardest working attorneys on our team.” – Chuck Farah, Senior Partner at Farah & Farah
