We take care to investigate every claim to determine if you have a case and how we can build the strongest lawsuit on your behalf. We make sure that every case has three critical elements required for a successful personal injury claim:
Another person or company had a duty to exercise reasonable care and not cause you harm
That person was negligent and failed to exercise reasonable care
That negligence caused you injury
With years of experience securing millions of dollars in compensation for our clients, we fight for the maximum level of compensation in every injury case we represent. That can include compensation for lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering, and more.

Were You Partially Responsible for Your Injury?
Not every injury case is straightforward, and it may not always be easy to determine who was at fault for the accident that caused your injuries. Fortunately, you can file a claim for compensation even if you were partially at fault for your injuries.
Florida law, however, limits the amount of compensation you can recover from a lawsuit if you were partially to blame for the accident. This includes injuries from vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, medical malpractice, and more.
Under Florida Statute 768.81, also known as the comparative negligence rule, the amount of compensation an injury victim can recover is reduced by the percentage of fault he or she had in causing his or her injuries. For example, if you were 20 percent responsible for your injuries, your damages award will be reduced by 20 percent.
Having our experienced Boca Raton personal injury lawyers on your side can ensure you are not blamed for more than your share of fault in causing your injuries so you can recover the compensation you deserve.
