A tragic case, involving our lovely 22 year-old client, a car wreck, and a catastrophic shooting. Client was involved in a child custody dispute with father of 14 month old daughter. As she was leaving the premises, the boyfriend crashed his truck into our client's car, making it impossible for her to open the door and exit her vehicle. The boyfriend then walked over the hood of his truck after removing a rifle from the vehicle. He presented the weapon right next to our client's left cheek, threatening her not to leave. She did not believe the gun was loaded, so he pulled the trigger. Tragically, the rifle was loaded. The bullet traveled from our client's left cheek and exited from under her right eye. She was instantly and permanently blinded in both eyes. Their daughter, sitting in a baby seat only a few feet away, was thankfully uninjured. We reached a quick settlement for the automobile insurance policy limits maintained on the boyfriend's truck. However, a lawsuit was filed against the boyfriend and his mother, the owner of the premises. Case eventually settled for a confidential amount, including amounts for the daughter and an older son. Our valiant client has made great efforts to lead a full life despite losing her sight.

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.

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 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.

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.

Client Review Videos

What is a Personal Injury?

A personal injury is simply an injury that a person sustains to their body. While a personal injury claim can address property damaged in a serious accident, property damage often constitutes individual civil action.

Therefore, a personal injury claim is a type of tort process where a victim of an accident seeks compensation from the individual or company that caused the accident. The injured party must prove that one of these institutions is liable for their injuries.

Specifically, today’s personal injury complaints can include cases addressing:

  • Severe injuries
  • Medical malpractice
  • Product liability
  • Nursing home abuse or nursing home neglect
  • Car accidents
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Workplace injuries
  • Birth injuries
  • Catastrophic injuries
  • Bite injuries

In the face of these challenging losses, know that you have our decades of experience handling personal injury matters at your disposal. Fasig | Brook’s personal injury practice can help you fight for your right to maximum compensation in the face of all manner of personal injury matters.

Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?

Your personal injury case needs to hit a few basic check marks if you want to take it to civil court. When you first bring your case to a team of personal injury lawyers in Jacksonville, ask yourself:

Did Someone Else Cause an Accident Due to Negligence, Recklessness, or Malice?

Injured parties have the best chance of bringing a personal injury case forward if they can prove that another party owed them a duty of care at the time the accident occurred. If another party violated that duty of care, you can claim that undue negligence contributed to your accident losses.

For example, if you are hurt in a drunk driving accident, the drunk driver failed their duty of care to keep you from being injured when they decided to drive drunk. Similarly, if you are assaulted and injured, the assailant failed their duty of care not to attack you.

A wrongful death lawsuit stems from this same issue but seeks additional damages for surviving loved ones. You can pursue a wrongful death lawsuit in the wake of medical malpractice, an auto accident, or any other personal injury that ultimately leads to the death of the injury victims.

Were You Injured in the Accident?

A failed duty of care determines whether or not you have a solid legal case. It is not the only factor that determines if you can move your lawsuit forward, though. Our team also needs to prove that you were injured due to that violated duty of care. 

Similarly, we must argue that the injuries had had, and will continue to have, a measurable impact on your personal and/or financial health. When we address your case, we take into account all of your losses. 

This means emotional distress, psychological stress, and long-term distress. While the economic impact of these losses may not be as tangible as it is when you contend with a broken bone, the value is still there. We can apply multipliers to your case to determine how a civil court might reflect the value of that strain in conversations about financial compensation.

Common Personal Injury Cases

A wide range of situations can qualify for a personal injury case, provided that someone is responsible for the accident and the victim was injured. That said, the following are some of the most common personal injuries and some of the types of cases that we cover at Fasig | Brooks.

Car Accidents

drivers-using-electronic-devices-while-driving-graph

Source: https://crashstats.nhtsa.dot.gov/Api/Public/ViewPublication/813184 

The United States has roughly 218 million registered drivers and even more registered vehicles. Each day in the United States, an average of 90 people are killed in fatal car accidents. Countless more are injured in nonfatal crashes. What’s more, there are an average of 6 million car accidents every year in the U.S., averaging nearly 17,000 accidents daily.

It is no wonder that car insurance companies are extremely busy handling claims. In the same breath, these companies are motivated to save as much money as possible while settling each claim they handle. You do not have to let a car insurance company get away with offering you an insufficient settlement, though. 

Whether your car accident stemmed from driver negligence or a defective product, we can act on your behalf. Our legal representation can stand with you during settlement negotiations and ensure that the company takes the full breadth of your losses into account.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and Fall Accident

Civil courts in Jacksonville, FL, consider slip and fall accidents to be a subset of premises liability issues. Whether you fall on private property or in the workplace, an accident may entitle you to financial recovery for your:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Lost opportunities to work
  • Property damage
  • Emotional distress
  • Long-term care

These accidents can stem from improper workplace lighting, uneven flooring, broken handrails, and slick floors. Property owners who fail to warn visitors or employees of these unsafe conditions can subsequently be held liable for your related losses.

Our attorneys often help bring a personal injury client’s slip and fall accident forward in civil court. We are prepared to take on property owners and managers through a claim or personal injury lawsuit to get you the money you deserve for the many impacts that you have likely suffered.

 

Wrongful Death Cases

Sometimes, the injuries resulting from a personal injury accident can prove fatal. These cases are subsequently referred to as wrongful death cases. Our personal injury attorneys in Jacksonville understand that a personal injury client’s feelings surrounding a wrongful death case can be complicated. 

Fortunately, we have the experience to take a nuanced approach to your case. Any manner of personal injury case resulting in the passing of a loved one may entitle the victim’s remaining family to compensation in civil court. Family members, including children, spouses, or parents, can come forward and help present a loved one’s case to a civil judge.

All the while, you can count on our Jacksonville wrongful death lawyers to both fight on your behalf and protect you from undue stress related to your case. We can demand compensation not only for your economic losses but for loss of companionship, loss of consortium, and grief.

Truck Accidents

truck-accidents

Accidents involving a commercial truck can result in devastating injuries for all parties involved. Unfortunately, insurance adjusters want to make sure that neither the company nor an individual driver face too much blame for your related losses. As such, these companies can try to get ahead of the release of evidence that might otherwise hold them accountable in court. 

If you find yourself in an accident with an independent truck driver, you can bring a civil claim against that lone person. 

Should an offending driver be on duty at the time an accident occurs, you can alternatively file a lawsuit against that driver’s parent company. Our personal injury attorneys in Jacksonville can use evidence to distinguish the at-fault party before taking your claim before a judge.

Motorcycle Accidents

vehicles-exceeding-speed-limit-graph

Florida is a very dangerous state in terms of motorcycle fatalities. The size and safety differences between motorcycles and other vehicles on Florida’s highways can see these accidents result in long-lasting damage for all parties involved.

More specifically, motorcycle drivers are at higher risk of fatal injuries when compared to a car accident because of the lack of protection. Because motorcycles are easily lost in blind spots, riders can also fall victim to traffic accidents with greater frequency than larger vehicles.

While Florida is still in the process of making the road a safer environment for its motorcyclists, an injured motorcyclist’s primary course of action after an accident lies in Florida’s civil courts. You can bring your losses to our team and discuss how tort law can help you restore some of your accident-related losses.

Bicycle Accidents

pedacyclist-fatalities-by-time-of-day-graph

Bicycles, as with motorcycles, are a great mode of transportation in sunny Florida weather. Unfortunately, it can be extremely dangerous to bike through Jacksonville. In fact, Florida has the most bicycle fatalities in the United States. This danger may be attributed to a combination of a lack of infrastructure for safe cycling.

In the face of roadway accidents, cyclists can also blame drunk driving, unclear expectations for sharing the road, and similar negligence for their losses. 

If you want to bring a bicycle accident claim forward in civil court, you can account for the types of damage you endured and through what means you believe they came to be. Our team can help corroborate your assessment in an initial claim.

Pedestrian Accidents

pedestrian-accidents

As a pedestrian, you have every right to expect that you should be able to travel safely throughout Jacksonville. So long as you abide by the crosswalk, sidewalk, and other related pedestrian laws, the state claims you should remain safe from accidents.

Unfortunately, these measures do not keep pedestrians safe from harm for various reasons that are often out of the pedestrian’s control. Florida has adopted policies similar to Vision Zero to combat these safety issues, but safety is still not guaranteed.

Contact us as soon as possible to schedule your free initial consultation, where we can discuss the nature of your accident and the extent of your injuries. We can also determine what your next steps should look like, should you want to fight for loss-based compensation.

Uber Accidents

uber-accidents

When you get into the back of an Uber, you expect the driver – and the company – to protect you. This, unfortunately, is not always the case. Uber drivers can be as prone to negligence as other commercial drivers, not to mention private motorists. Fortunately, Uber has measures in place designed to protect its passengers from harm.

So long as an Uber driver is on duty at the time of an accident, they benefit from the full breadth of Uber’s insurance. The gray areas surrounding a driver’s time on duty can complicate your right to financial support, though. Similarly, it can make holding an Uber driver responsible for their negligent behavior challenging.

You do not have to let yourself become overwhelmed by Uber’s attempts to avoid its legal responsibility to you. Instead, you can call on our team. Our experienced attorneys can help you minimize your pocket expenses by ensuring that Uber and related parties do their time before a civil judge. This way, you can focus on recovering from your losses.
