Call (770) 285-5542 for Experienced & Skilled Legal Representation in Florida
Suffering a serious injury in an accident can be a devastating and traumatic experience. Not only do you have to take time off work to recover from the injury, not having a steady income can make it difficult to support your family or household. Furthermore, the negligent party or their insurance company may deny liability, which means you would have to pay for your medical treatment out of your own wallet.
At Herbert Chestnut & Associates, we are dedicated to holding the at-fault party accountable for their negligent actions and help you make the best possible recovery from injury. Our Jacksonville personal injury lawyer can investigate the accident, gather evidence, negotiate with insurance adjusters, and maximize your entitled compensation.
How We Can Help
In order to recover financial compensation from a personal injury lawsuit in Florida, you and your lawyer must prove that the defendant had a legal duty of care, the defendant breached that duty of care, the breach led to the accident and your injuries, and your injuries resulted in monetary damages such as medical bills, lost wages, and even pain and suffering. We can evaluate your case, determine your available legal options, and create an effective and personalized case strategy to protect your rights and best interests throughout the legal process.
Personal injury cases our firm handles include:
- Serious car accidents – Devastating collisions can lead to catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), paralysis, loss of limbs, and broken bones. Florida is a pure comparative fault state, which means the injured party’s award is reduced by a percentage equal to their share of fault.
- Wrongful death – If your loved one passed away due to the negligence of another person or entity, the surviving family members can pursue a wrongful death claim to recover damages to pay for funeral and burial expenses, medical bills before the decedent’s death, and losses the family suffered due to the loss of financial contribution by the decedent.
