How Can a Port Charlotte Personal Injury Attorney Help?

Call our trusted Port Charlotte personal injury law firm at (941) 291-0457 to set your case in motion. A personal injury claim is a multi-step process. 

A Free, Confidential Consultation

We will start with a free consultation at the location that works best for you and at a convenient time for you, even if it isn’t between nine and five.  

We will ask detailed questions about your accident and review your evidence. If we decide to proceed with your case, we will assign a team of dedicated lawyers, paralegals, and support staff to handle your claim and support you in every way possible. 

A Thorough Case Investigation

Regardless of what type of accident caused your injuries, our resourceful attorneys will perform a detailed forensic investigation. For a car accident, this may involve an accident reconstruction. In medical malpractice cases, we will compare the doctor’s actions to medical standards. In a slip and fall case, we will evaluate the causes and how it could have been prevented. 

The case investigation is our most important job because it will yield the evidence we need to prove your claim while helping us determine who is liable. The evidence we gather may include the following: 

Calculation of Your Case Value

When you file a personal injury claim, you must demand a specific amount of compensation. Without an experienced lawyer on your side, you could easily underestimate your long-term costs, undervalue your losses, and demand too little.  

Our experienced Port Charlotte personal injury lawyers will look at the complete picture and account for all your present and future losses. We will review your medical records, talk to your doctors, and consult medical and financial experts to ensure we don’t miss a single dollar. 

Your Personal Injury Insurance Claim

Most personal injury cases in Florida start with an insurance claim. If the insurance company agrees to pay the amount we calculated, we can resolve your case quickly. Unfortunately, insurance companies are more likely to offer less than you deserve or refuse to pay at all. 

If the insurance company refuses to compensate you fairly, we will file a civil lawsuit. We will then use our evidence and record of success as leverage to negotiate a settlement. If the insurance company refuses to offer a fair and reasonable settlement, we will take your case to trial.

Law enforcement and citizens alike have expressed concerns about the dangerous intersection at U.S. 41 and Chamberlain Boulevard, and heavy traffic throughout the Tamiami Trail can lead to serious accidents. In 2022, 1,897 people were injured and 38 died in crashes in Charlotte County. 

These deaths included seven pedestrians and seven motorcycle riders. Bikers and pedestrians are more vulnerable and more likely to experience severe injuries and death in accidents. Contact us now to talk to our Port Charlotte motorcycle accident lawyers or pedestrian accident lawyers. 

Truck traffic on Tamiami Trail and I-75 contributes significantly to traffic congestion in Southwest Florida, increasing the risk of accidents. Truck accident claims are more complex than other motor vehicle accident claims because large trucking companies are often liable. Our truck accident lawyers in Port Charlotte are ready to stand with you against these large companies. 

Slips and Falls

Property owners and businesses are legally obligated to keep their premises safe for visitors. You may be able to recover financial damages after slipping and falling on someone else’s property if you can prove that the property owner’s negligence contributed. Common causes of slips and falls include the following:

Our slip and fall lawyers in Port Charlotte know what it takes to prove a property owner was negligent. Contact us now for a free case review.

If your family member tragically died because of someone else’s negligence, you may be able to recover economic, non-economic, and punitive damages in a wrongful death lawsuit. Recoverable damages include compensation for your loved one’s medical expenses, final expenses, and pain and suffering.  

Our Port Charlotte wrongful death lawyers can also help you recover compensation for your family’s emotional losses and the loss of your family member’s lifetime income had they survived. 

Time Is Running Out To File Your Port Charlotte Personal Injury Lawsuit

Florida’s personal injury statute of limitations imposes a deadline on personal injury claims. In most cases, this deadline is two years from the date of the injury, but this can vary. For example, injuries caused by medical malpractice are not always immediately discoverable. This may extend the statute of limitations. 

The statute of limitations may be shorter in some cases, such as when the at-fault party is a government agency. Thus, it is crucial to contact a Port Charlotte personal injury attorney as soon as possible after you are injured.
