Slip and Fall

Many commercial properties are leased to big corporations like Wal-Mart, Publix, or Outback Steak House.  Florida law makes the tenant responsible to keep the property “reasonably safe.” The injured party must be able to prove the tenant knew of and had a chance to fix the danger but did not do so, or that he caused the danger to begin with,  and that the danger caused the injury.


Car and Trucking Accidents

Even with newer model cars and trucks, better safety systems,  more regulations, mandatory seat belts, anti-lock brakes, padded dashboards, and modern divided highways,  Florida still has a deadly and serious accidents.  Highway speeds in excess of 80 mph is illegal but not uncommon.


Motorcycle accidents

In my experience handling biker cases over the years, most biker accidents happen  because of the combination of another driver who  turns left across the path of the oncoming biker and the  invisibility factor.  Even small accidents causes road rash, severe pain, and permanent scarring.

Phil only represents victims, not insurance companies. Only a small percent of his cases actually “go to court.”

It’s always surprising to him when a client starts off a new client conference by saying, “I am not the type of person who sues.” Society has made accident victims feel guilty about making a claim. Remember, the Declaration of Independence guarantees all men and women the right to life, liberty and “the pursuit of happiness.” You have nothing to feel ashamed about just because you are asking for advice!
