Navarre Personal Injury Lawyers
Accidents happen in many ways, every day, all across the country. Some accidents are minor and have little to no impact on the victim’s life, while others can be catastrophic — or even fatal. After a serious accident that causes injuries, the victim may face significant financial issues such as mounting medical bills, impacts on their earnings, or even the loss of a loved one. When someone else causes the accident, a victim is entitled to seek compensation, typically from the at-fault party’s insurance company. The type of liability insurance depends on the nature of the collision, meaning that an accident on someone’s property may be covered by homeowner’s or business insurance, while a car accident will be covered by the at-fault driver’s auto insurance.
Insurance is a very helpful tool when it comes to both paying damages in the event that you caused an accident AND collecting damages when you are the victim. Still, the fact is that insurance companies are focused on paying as little as possible in order to protect their bottom line. Even knowing this, victims can have a very difficult time fighting back to get the money they deserve for a number of reasons. They include inexperience with the claims process and personal injury law, as well as their compromised condition after a traumatic and painful accident. This is why personal injury attorneys are such a valuable asset in the aftermath of an injury that someone else caused.
Fasig | Brooks Will Fight To Get The Money You Deserve
The team at Fasig | Brooks is dedicated to helping victims of reckless or negligent behavior that caused an accident. When someone else ignores their duty of care and causes an accident because of reckless, negligent, or malicious actions (or inactions), you do not deserve to take on the financial impacts of their dangerous decisions. Unfortunately, simply filing an insurance claim does not guarantee that you will get the money you are rightfully owed. In fact, the insurance company will likely work as aggressively as possible to resolve your claim for much lower than you are entitled to by leveraging the complexity of tort law to someone without legal experience.

Each time we drive or ride in someone else’s car, we are putting our trust in countless strangers that we share the road with. Most of the time, this trust is met with responsible driving and adherence to the rules of the road, but this is not always the case: in 2020 alone, there were a total of 341,299 accidents reported in Florida and a total of 2,016 in Santa Rose County — including 20 fatalities. Nobody leaves their home in the morning planning to be hurt or killed in a car accident, but the unfortunate reality is that this is always a possibility. If you have been in a car accident that someone else caused, we are here to help you get a fair settlement for your damages.
Catastrophic injuries are legally described as any injury that renders a victim unable to perform meaningful work. These injuries can happen in any sort of accident, but if someone else caused them, then you will need to work with an experienced attorney. They can help you calculate not only the short-term damages you’ve already experienced but also the long-term repercussions such as a loss of income, loss of future savings, loss of future retirement contributions, and more. Once a victim accepts a settlement from the insurance company, they can no longer seek additional payment, so you must be confident in your settlement amount before taking payment. We are here to help.
When you purchase a product, you have a legal right to expect the product to function as advertised and for the manufacturer to provide you with adequate instructions and risk warnings. You also expect comprehensive quality control measures to ensure that a defect will not injure you, you will not suffer negative consequences due to improper marketing, or be hurt by a failure to warn you of risks properly. The United States has a range of consumer protections meant to combat these risks, but even a comprehensive legal structure is no guarantee for getting the money you rightfully deserve as a victim. Working with a personal injury attorney can give you the experience and confidence you need to take on a major company.
Sexual assault is a criminal offense, but the perpetrator getting arrested and charged does not block a victim from seeking civil damages as well. As a victim of sexual assault, you deserve compensation for a range of damages and to work with a compassionate and experienced attorney. They should guide you through this process while respecting your need to focus on healing from this difficult experience.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Each time someone lawfully visits someone else’s property, whether a commercial, government, or residential property, they have a legal right to expect that the property owner or manager has taken appropriate steps to provide a safe, hazard-free environment. One of the most common issues that visitors encounter that lead to problems is a slick surface like a wet floor that can cause slip and fall accidents. These accidents can result in broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, soft-tissue damage, and more. If you’ve been hurt on someone else’s property due to a maintenance issue, you may be entitled to a range of damages.
Commercial truck drivers are held to different standards than passenger vehicle drivers, starting with the possession of a Commercial Driver’s License that is subdivided into classes based on vehicle size. In addition to a CDL, a driver must adhere to a number of regulations and restrictions, such as a lower BAC limit while operating a commercial vehicle and strict hours of service that they are allowed to drive. In addition to these regulations and licensing requirements, maintaining and operating an 18-wheeler or other commercial truck requires in-depth knowledge about vehicle maintenance, operating in inclement weather, and more. Truck drivers are often very responsible, but even the best driver is at risk of making an error that leads to an accident.
Wrongful death is a personal injury term for a tort violation that results in the death of a victim. These cases, legally speaking, are handled like any other personal injury case in that the claimants (in this case, the surviving dependents or family members of the deceased) are entitled to damages for both economic and non-economic losses caused by the accident. However, there are additional damages in a wrongful death case that are not present in other types of personal injuries, such as the loss of financial support from the deceased, as well as funerary costs, and more. Working with a compassionate and experienced attorney during this difficult time is one of the best ways to ensure that you and your family can focus on healing from this tragic loss while a diligent personal injury lawyer fights to get you the money you deserve.
