We Handle A Broad Range of Florida Injury Claims

Car Accident Attorney

Being hurt in a car accident can turn your life upside down. Serious injuries are costly to treat and may require significant periods of time off work. That’s not to mention the other losses that often impact individuals injured in serious wrecks, such as the ability to perform daily tasks like getting the kids to school or putting food on the table.

Florida’s no-fault insurance laws sometimes leave car accident victims wondering whether they are able to file a lawsuit against the party(s) responsible for their accident. While it’s true that you must turn to your own insurance’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits first after a crash, you may also be able to take legal action. That’s because PIP benefits will only pay for a portion of your medical expenses and lost income. If the severity of your injury exhausts these benefits, you may be entitled to pursue additional compensation by filing a personal injury claim against whoever is at fault for the wreck.

Florida law allows accident victims to file a negligence claim against another driver if their injuries are serious and permanent, such as:

  • Spinal cord injury (paralysis)
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Disfigurement
  • Scarring
  • Amputation
  • Permanent damage to an important bodily function

If you’ve been injured in a Lakeland car accident, talk to one of the experienced personal injury lawyers at Brooks Law Group to ensure that you have received your full PIP benefits. You can also explore whether a lawsuit is a valid option during a free consultation.

Truck Accident Attorney

Collisions involving commercial motor vehicles are some of the worst on the road. A standard car is simply no match for a large truck, tractor-trailer or 18-wheeler. Injuries are often catastrophic or fatal. If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, it’s critical to contact a skilled attorney for immediate help.

Truck accident cases are more complex than traditional car accident claims. Instead of dealing with an individual driver or drivers, you will be dealing with trucking companies and other businesses that are involved in transporting the cargo. That means that numerous entities may be held liable in your claim. Figuring out who should be held accountable for your injuries is a job for one of the Lakeland truck accident attorneys at Brooks Law Group.

Truck accident injuries frequently meet Florida’s serious injury threshold and include:

  • Head and neck injuries
  • Back and spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Crush injuries
  • Internal organ trauma
  • Thermal and chemical burns
  • Amputation

Commercial motor vehicles are regulated by both the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and by state law. You’ll need a lawyer who understands how these laws work to ensure that your interests are represented fairly during the claims process.

When you work with Brooks Law Group, you’ll get a team of dedicated professionals who are committed to getting maximum results for you and your family.

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycling is a popular form of recreation and transportation in Florida. Unfortunately, it’s also risky. Bikers have little to protect them from harm if they are involved in a motorcycle accident. Motorcycles are also lightweight and harder to see on the roads, making operators and passengers particularly vulnerable.

Common causes of motorcycle accidents include:

  • Blind spots: Drivers who fail to check their blind spots before changing lanes can easily strike a motorcyclist.
  • Speeding: Driving too fast is dangerous for any motorist, regardless of vehicle type. But aside from wearing motorcycle gear and a helmet, bikers have little to shield them from serious injury.
  • Alcohol/drug use: Driving under the influence can slow reflexes, affect balance and lead to judgment errors that result in deadly motorcycle collisions.
  • Tailgating: Rear-end accidents are a common consequence of following too closely.
  • Lane splitting: This occurs when a motorcyclist drives between the lanes of traffic. It is against the law in Florida and in most of the United States.
  • Left-turn accidents: Bikers can be injured when someone makes an unsafe turn, fails to yield the right of way or misjudges the distance between the two vehicles.
  • Road defects: Cracked pavement, potholes, and other debris in the road are particularly dangerous for motorcyclists.
  • Faulty parts: The designers and makers of defective motorcycle parts may be held liable if a malfunction causes a biker to crash.

Our motorcycle accident attorneys have successfully represented crash victims in Lakeland, Tampa, Winter Haven, and Auburndale for nearly 30 years. Put our experience to work for
you. Call or contact us for your free consultation.

Pedestrian Accident Attorney

We’re all pedestrians at some point, so we’re all at risk of being involved in a pedestrian accident. Whether you’re walking in a parking lot or on a neighborhood sidewalk, you have the right to expect that other drivers and bicyclists will be on their guard to avoid hitting you. But if someone is negligent and causes an accident that injures you, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries and related losses.

Common injuries from pedestrian accidents include:

  • Broken bones
  • Cuts
  • Soft tissue damage, like pulled ligaments and tendons
  • Head injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries

You don’t deserve to pay for injuries that aren’t your fault. Even if you are partly to blame for the accident, you could still be entitled to compensation. Let our knowledgeable lawyers fight to get you the best results for your claim.

Wrongful Death Attorney

There’s nothing worse than losing a beloved family member. Filing a wrongful death claim is one way that family members can hold the responsible party accountable for their negligence.

It’s critical to speak to a wrongful death attorney in cases involving an accidental death. A lawyer will be able to launch an immediate investigation into the claim, making sure that all relevant evidence is collected and preserved.

At Brooks Law Group, we know that money cannot replace your loss. But many families experience financial hardships after the sudden death of a loved one. While taking legal steps may be the last thing you feel like doing, obtaining wrongful death compensation can be the foundation for rebuilding your life again.

Our compassionate attorneys are able to meet in our Lakeland office, in your home, or wherever you need. Contact us for a free consultation.

Slip and Fall Lawyer

We’ve all taken a tumble before. But if you slipped and fell on another’s property due to a hazardous condition, you could be entitled to compensation.

Like all personal injury cases, a slip and fall accident claim must prove negligence. You must be able to show that the person in charge of the property (usually an owner, landlord or management company) did not take reasonable steps to ensure that their premises were safe. You must also prove that you did not act recklessly by trespassing or ignoring posted caution signs around the area where your accident occurred.

Seek an attorney’s guidance if you suspect that you have a slip and fall case. You can expect the insurance company to challenge your claims by saying that you were distracted or otherwise to blame for the incident.

At Brooks Law Group, we don’t let insurers bully our clients. We’ll build a strong case that shows why you deserve maximum compensation for your injuries.

Our trusted legal team will fight for the results that you are owed. Call our phone number to schedule a free consultation.

Dog Bite Attorney

We’ve come to think of dogs as our faithful, furry friends. Most of the time, that’s true. But when a dog bite lands you or a family member in the hospital with serious injuries, it’s time to consider contacting a lawyer.

In Florida, you can recover compensation from a dog owner’s insurance company even if the owner had no clue that the dog had dangerous tendencies. The only exceptions would be if you were trespassing or provoking the dog in some way. Even in those circumstances, it’s a good idea to contact a dog bite attorney. Florida’s negligence laws could allow you to collect partial compensation if you share a portion of fault for the dog attack.

Wondering whether you have a dog bite claim in Lakeland? Contact us now to get the answers you need.

Construction Accident Attorney

About one in five workplace deaths occur in the construction industry, according to the U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration. Many more construction accidents result in serious injuries.

OSHA has labeled the leading causes of construction accidents as the “Fatal Four.” These are:

  • Falls
  • Being struck by objects
  • Electrocutions
  • Caught in/between equipment or being crushed in collapsing structures

Injuries from construction accidents may be covered through your workers’ compensation benefits. But if a third party other than your employer is responsible for the accident, you may be eligible for additional compensation through a personal injury claim. A competent attorney can identify all possible defendants in your case.

With multiple locations throughout central Florida, it’s likely you’ll find a Brooks Law Group office near you. Use our simple online contact form to arrange your free consultation today.

Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

No one knows how many seniors fall victim to nursing home abuse each year. It is an underreported crime, with many fearful residents suffering in silence.

Federal agencies monitor U.S. nursing homes in an attempt to protect the elderly from abuse and neglect. Sadly, Florida has a poor track record. A recent news report found that 25 of the 697 nursing homes in the state were flagged for “severe citations of abuse.” According to the article, such citations usually indicate there was a death or injury.

If you believe that a loved one is being abused in a Lakeland nursing home, don’t hesitate to act quickly. Get one of the tough nursing home abuse attorneys at Brooks Law Group to investigate your claim as soon as possible.

Social Security Disability Lawyer

If a disability prevents you from working for a year or more, you may be entitled to Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits.

The Social Security Administration has four programs for people with disabilities, including:

  • Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
  • Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
  • Disabled Widows and Widowers Benefits (DWB)
  • Disabled Adult Child Benefits (DAC)

Obtaining approval for Social Security Disability benefits can be fraught with obstacles. Having an attorney prepare or review your application can help ensure that it is correct and complete. This can speed up the SSD determination process, which is generally quite lengthy.

Our attorneys have represented thousands of clients who were initially denied SSD benefits. If you’re one of them, contact us today.

Defective Products Attorney

People have the right to trust that the products they buy are safe. When an accident happens due to a design defect or other malfunction, it’s possible to file a product liability claim against whoever is at fault for the resulting injuries.

Possible liable parties include:

  • The product designer
  • Its manufacturer
  • A distributor
  • The retailer who sold the product to the consumer

If you’ve been harmed by a defective product, you’ll need a product liability lawyer who has the knowledge and resources to investigate the accident. Trust Brooks Law Group to determine all liable parties and hold them accountable for their actions.
