Hands-down the best firm to go with. Carrie Roane and Brittney Jarvis are my warriors. From the time I stepped foot in their office, they took charge of my case. Carrie grabbed my case by the horns and never let go until the job was done. She fought tooth and nail for me. They are passionate about what they do. If I had a question, all I had to do is call, email or even text them personally and the response was prompt and detailed to my expectations. They treated me as if my case was their main priority. Very professional and dutiful about each step during the process. They provide the most “OUSTANDING” service and these women do their job well. Polite, friendly, and precise - what could anyone ask for?

My case was not a large case, but you would never know that by care and effort of Jimmy Fasig and the whole family at Fasig and Brooks. The first care of the firm was my physical well being..only after making sure I was on a proper road to recovery did the issue of financial recovery come into play. It might sound corny but I indeed walked in a potential client and now feel as though I have a firm of friends lead by Jimmy Fasig who I am proud to call a buddy....Yes I would use them again and feel free to personal message me if you have any question of how well you will be treated by this great bunch of folks.

I am very fortunate to have come in contact with Jimmy Fasig and the hardworking attorneys/paralegals over at Fasig and Brooks. My case was fairly delicate and time consuming, at times I really wasn't sure what to expect. Thanks to Jimmy Fasig I just received a settlement check only a week ago and should be receiving another within the upcoming days. I really can't thank him enough, he truly exceeding my expectations and due to his care and attention to my every concern I can honestly say that this is the best experience I have ever had with an attorney. I truly value how hard he worked for me and am grateful to think of him as a friend. Wish you guys the best and will definitely recommend you to anyone in need. Take care

If you are looking for a more personalized and professional attention they are the best option. This was my first time dealing with a lawyer and it was a pleasant one. I was referred to them by another lawyer, Tina Willis, who was the first I contacted after my car accident hoping she could take my case based on her reviews and also because I was looking for some more personalized attention than the big companies you see on TV where you become just another case number. After talking and explaining my case, Tina took it, however at the same time she referred me to Fasig Brooks, specifically to Carrie Roane, and with the help of Brittney Waldo they handle my case in a really professional manner but at the same time friendly and caring. Carrie was really easy to get in touch and she or Brittney always answer in the best manner my questions or concerns. They explain me all the process, advise me to take the best decisions and finally managed to reach a very favorable agreement. If I ever need a lawyer, I’ll not hesitate to contact them. Thank you so much for your caring and professionalism.

And they will help you, guide you and explain you absolutely everything so that you are properly informed. My experience with Fasig | Brooks attorneys has been extremely good. Especially Jimmy, Carrie and Brittney who have been very helpful throughout my entire process. Since the first day, Mr. Jimmy Fasig contacted me by phone and he received me in his office to explain how everything worked. He was very aware all the time and he got me absolutely everything I needed to make my life easier. Mrs. Carrie along with Brittney were extremely helpful and they explained and guided me at all times to make the right decisions regarding my case. They made it clear to me what were the steps to follow and never failed to keep me informed. They are extremely nice, very professional! Thank you Fasig | Brooks!

If you are in need of a personal injury attorney in Florida, do yourself a favor and call Carrie Roane. You won’t regret it. She is very knowledgeable about personal injury cases. She and her staff are professional, courteous and make you feel like your case is important to them. I feel like she would work as hard for a hundred thousand dollar case as she would for a million dollar case. My emails were always promptly answered and I was kept up to date on what was happening with each step, Ms. Roane just settled a case for me and she more than exceeded my expectations. Words can’t begin to describe what a wonderful job she did. She got my case settled quickly and was able to get me compensation that I never expected and never dreamed possible. She looks at the case from every angle to get her client the best possible outcome. I highly recommend Ms Roane and her firm if you want someone that will fight for you and know how to negotiate with the big insurance companies.

Suffering from any type of injury can have a significant impact on your ability to perform meaningful work, earn a living, enjoy your life, and more. When someone else causes an accident that leads to your injuries, you may be able to seek compensation for a range of these impacts, known as damages, in order to ensure that you do not take on the financial impacts of someone else’s negligent or irresponsible behavior.

Often, an at-fault party may be protected from personal liability with an insurance policy, the nature of which will vary depending on the circumstances of your accident. The most common types of insurance include automobile insurance, homeowner’s insurance, medical malpractice insurance, or business insurance, but many other types of insurance may apply. 

Filing an insurance claim is a straightforward process, and if you follow the insurance adjuster’s lead through the personal injury claim, it can be resolved without much stress. The problem with taking this path is that insurance companies are focused on settling claims for as little as possible, not getting claimants the money they deserve.


Getting the Money You Deserve 

If you want to get fair compensation, you will need to approach this process aggressively and take proactive measures, including calculating your damages, negotiating for a settlement, and choosing whether or not to move forward with a lawsuit in order to get the money you are rightfully owed. 

Insurance companies know that personal injury victims have a lot on their minds when they file a claim and will often make an initial offer for far less than the victim deserves in the hopes that they accept this quick settlement to apply towards their medical bills and alleviate the financial pressures associated with lost wages. This settlement comes with a waiver that absolves the insurer and their client from any additional legal action pertaining to the accident, regardless of whether additional information emerged later.

Contact an Attorney Before Accepting Any Settlement Offers

Before resolving a personal injury claim, it is essential that you are confident in the amount you are receiving as a victim.

Working with an experienced personal injury attorney is one of the best ways to ensure that you are taking all of the necessary steps towards a comprehensive settlement, but too often, victims choose to initiate personal injury claims on their own and may mistakenly believe that they will only need a Tallahassee personal injury lawyer if they plan to file a lawsuit.

Common Personal Injury Cases in Florida

The following are meant to give you a few general examples of the many different types of accidents that can lead to personal injury claims. Whether or not you see your situation mentioned below, simply contact us as soon as possible to learn about how an attorney can help you fight for fair compensation.


Car Accidents

Florida car accident statistics

In 2019, there were 401,867 car accidents reported in Florida, with 7,107 of those accidents taking place in Leon County. This means that, on average, there are 1,101 car accidents each day in Florida and 19 in Tallahassee and the rest of Leon County. 

While many of us make it safely to and from our destinations each day, these statistics show many people do not. 

Car accidents are caused by various factors, including, but not limited to, speed, alcohol, inexperience, road rage, weather, and mechanical failures. 

Regardless of the cause of your auto accident, it is important that the at-fault driver is held accountable for their actions (or inactions) and that you are fairly compensated for the damages you have suffered.

Motorcycle Accidents

A motorcycle accident typically causes far worse injuries than an auto accident between two passenger vehicles at the same speed, simply because there is virtually no structural protection afforded by a motorcycle. A rider’s only protective measures are the clothes and equipment they are wearing. 

Even at low speeds, a motorcycle rider is commonly thrown from the vehicle, meaning that there is an additional secondary impact when they hit the ground after first being struck by the car. 

Florida: Dangerous For Motorcycles?

Florida is routinely shown to be one of the most dangerous states for fatal motorcycle accidents, which may be attributed to the lax helmet laws in our state, as well as the year-round weather that allows riders to operate motorcycles year-round. Regardless of why this is true, it is important to recognize the risks associated with riding a motorcycle before taking to the Florida roads. 


Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice comes in many forms, including a doctor’s failure to accurately diagnose an illness, prescription errors, surgical mistakes, inappropriate courses of treatment, and more. 

Medical professionals cannot guarantee positive medical outcomes but are legally required to provide medical care based on existing best practices and a prudent focus on avoiding undue harm to their patients. 

Florida Damage Caps

Florida caps non-economic damages at $500,000 for most malpractice cases that resulted in serious injuries and $1 million caps for malpractice that caused wrongful death or a permanent vegetative state. 

Working with a personal injury attorney that focuses on medical malpractice cases is one of the best ways to ensure that you are taking the right steps towards getting the money you deserve for this avoidable tragedy.


Premises Liability Injuries

Each time we visit someone else’s property, whether a private residence, commercial location, government building, or other areas, we have a legal right to expect that the property owner or manager has taken all necessary precautions to ensure that our visit is free from accidents caused by on-site hazards. 

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are the most common premises liability cases, typically from wet floors, uneven flooring, or dangerous staircases. 

If you or a loved one has been hurt in a slip, trip, and fall accident on someone else’s property, you deserve compensation for the damages you have suffered. Working with a personal injury attorney will give you a clear understanding of how to best move forward with your case while you focus on getting the medical care you need to make a successful recovery. 


Product Liability Cases

Many consumer protections in the United States require companies to disclose all potential hazards that come with normal use of their product, bar a company from engaging in false advertising, and hold businesses accountable for injuries stemming from defects in the product or marketing. 

It can be extremely frustrating for someone to suffer catastrophic injuries only to realize that their injuries could have been avoided if the company had more rigorous quality checks or had been truthful in their advertising.

You Deserve Experienced Representation

Taking on a massive company can be extremely intimidating for a single victim, which is why partnering with a Tallahassee personal injury attorney right from the start is one of the best ways to get immediate legal advice and a clear path towards resolving your case. 

Personal injury law is complicated in any situation, but trying to navigate a successful claim while dealing directly with a company’s team of defense attorneys can be difficult for anyone, especially a victim who is trying to recover from severe injuries at the same time.


Pedestrian Accidents

Walking in Tallahassee can be a pleasant experience, but there is a continuous risk of being involved in an auto accident while on foot. Staying on sidewalks, using crosswalks correctly, and waiting for crossing lights are all great ways to help stay safe. Still, the reality is that a pedestrian relies on the drivers around them to engage in safe and responsible behavior to avoid a severe accident. 

In an accident between a pedestrian and a motor vehicle, the pedestrian is nearly always suffering from far worse injuries.

Work With an Attorney To Build a Strong Pedestrian Injury Case

After a pedestrian accident, a Tallahassee personal injury lawyer can help prove fault and liability. Once fault has been established can help you fight to get a fair settlement for the many damages you have endured. 

Car insurance companies will work aggressively to settle Tallahassee personal injury claims against their clients as quickly and affordably as possible and may engage in some unsavory practices to achieve this goal. Fortunately, your personal injury lawyer will combat these tactics to get you the money you deserve.


Bicycle Collisions

As with traveling on foot, riding a bicycle in Tallahassee can be an enjoyable way to get fresh air, enjoy the sights, and get some exercise, all while getting to and from your destinations. That said, there are significant risks that cyclists face each time they take to the roads, and no matter what additional protections and laws that the city puts into place to protect cyclists, there will always be a risk of an accident. 

As Bicycle Fatalities Decline, Riders Still Need Legal Support

Many cities are focusing on reducing and ultimately eliminating cyclist deaths, but until this is a reality, cyclists across the country will need to work with personal injury law professionals to get the money they deserve after accidents. 


Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is an overarching personal injury area that covers any fatal injury that another person caused through negligence, recklessness, or criminal behavior. In these cases, a Tallahassee personal injury attorney will work to calculate the financial impact that the survivors will experience due to things like the loss of support from the deceased, retirement contributions, medical costs, funerary expenses, and more. 

Identify the Long Term Impacts Of This Tragic Loss

Calculating the long-term impacts of wrongful death can be very difficult, especially as survivors try to work through the grief of this unexpected loss, so partnering with an attorney through these types of personal injury claims is important. 


Frequently Asked Questions About Tallahassee Personal Injuries

The following are a few of the many different questions that a personal injury attorney commonly answers during initial consultations with potential clients. Remember that the answers provided below are not intended as legal advice and should simply be used to give you an idea of how a lawyer may answer your questions. Many of these questions can’t be answered simply, and more details will likely emerge over the weeks and months that you work with your personal injury lawyer to build a strong case.


How much is my personal injury case worth?

The answer to the question of settlement amounts requires ongoing calculations and close attention to detail. Typically, calculations start with major costs like medical expenses and lost wages, and then work to identify a wide range of additional possible impacts such as the actual pain and suffering a victim must deal with after suffering serious injuries.


Will I need to go to trial to get the money I deserve?

There is no guarantee one way or the other that you will be able to settle a case or that you will need to file a lawsuit with the Florida courts, but some studies estimate that 95% of all personal injury claims are resolved before making it to trial, and roughly 50% of claims are settled before a lawsuit is filed at all. Of course, these statistics have no bearing on your unique situation. Working with an attorney will give you the best idea of what to expect moving forward.


Am I entitled to punitive damages for my personal injury accident?

A judge or jury awards punitive damages at the end of a trial in cases where the defendant acted in a particularly egregious or wonton manner and showed significant disregard for the safety of others. Your attorney will not include these potential damages in settlement negotiations, but they may decide to push for a trial if they suspect that your case may warrant these additional damages.


Can I seek compensation if I am partially responsible for my personal injury accident?

Florida uses a law known as “pure comparative fault” for personal injury cases, allowing a victim to assume a percentage of fault for an accident and still be entitled to compensation. In this case, your final award would be reduced proportionately to the percentage of fault that you accepted for your role in the accident.
