Confidential Settlement

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.

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.

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.

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.

Any sort of injury can have a significant impact on a victim’s life, and the lives of their family members and loved ones. When someone else is responsible for the accident that caused the injuries, the resulting situation can be even more complicated with legal issues, insurance claims, police reports, and more. All of this while the victim is trying to stay focused on their recovery, and the insurance company or defense team is working aggressively to pay as little as possible — regardless of the true damages, the victims have suffered. When loved ones suffer the tragic wrongful death of a loved one, they are left with medical bills, a major loss of financial contributions, and, most importantly, serious emotional damage. All of this and more must be addressed in their claim, and the attorneys at our law firm have a deep understanding of this process following a range of accidents.

Checklist

Car Accident Checklist

Download a copy of our FREE car accident checklist

Working with a personal injury attorney is one of the most important steps that a victim can take after suffering from injuries that someone else caused, whether due to negligence, recklessness, or even malice. As a victim of someone else’s failure to uphold their duty of care to keep you safe from avoidable harm, you are entitled to compensation for a wide range of damages under Florida’s state laws. Some of these damages are obvious and simple to calculate, while others are subjective or difficult to quantify. Regardless of the ease of calculation, though, you do not deserve to shoulder the financial burden if you are injured by someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior in Panama City, Florida.

The Factors of a Personal Injury Claim

The first thing to understand when it comes to your situation is whether or not it constitutes a Florida personal injury. The following factors must be present in a situation in order for a victim to file a tort claim. Once you understand the following requirements, you will be able to compare them to your own situation in order to determine whether or not you believe you have a case. However, we encourage you to reach out to our Panama City, FL law firm as soon as possible to speak directly with a personal injury lawyer about your unique situation. No two accidents are alike, and the opportunity to speak with a Panama City personal injury attorney can help you make the most sense of your own options as you move forward.

1. The At-Fault Party Owed You a Duty of Care

A “duty of care” sounds like a highly-specific and explicit responsibility, but the reality is that we all have duties of care each day that we uphold in our travels throughout Panama City and beyond. A duty of care, simply put, is the obligation to act in a safe and prudent way in order to keep those around us safe from avoidable harm. When we drive a vehicle, our duty of care is to obey all state and local traffic laws and drive safely; alternately, a medical professional owes their patients a duty of care to provide them with reasonable care that does not cause unnecessary injuries. There are many duties of care, both explicit and implicit that we all agree to as part of the “social contract” for a safe society. This duty of care is the first thing our personal injury attorneys will examine for your personal injury case.


2. The At-Fault Party Failed Their Duty of Care

When someone decides to operate a motor vehicle while intoxicated, a property owner’s negligence causes a fall, or when a medical professional fails to provide care that any “reasonable professional” would provide, they are failing their respective duties of care for those who rely on them to act responsibly. However, this failure may or may not lead to a personal injury. If someone drives drunk but does not cause an accident, they are guilty of breaking the law but have not caused others to suffer damages as a result. Please note that a criminal charge does not preclude a civil case; each is handled in a separate Florida court, and each has a different outcome. A Panama City personal injury lawyer works in the Florida civil courts and will commonly attempt to reach an out-of-court settlement agreement before filing a lawsuit.


3. This Failure Caused an Accident

When a drunk driver causes a car accident, the third necessary factor is present for a possible personal injury claim. The same can be said about a doctor who fails to properly diagnose an illness, and their patient’s condition is made worse as a result. Once a failed duty of care directly impacts another individual, there is an increased likelihood that the injured party can seek compensation for the incident. Car accidents and medical malpractice are just two of the many possible situations that assign liability to an at-fault party, and our personal injury lawyers have years of experience representing a wide range of personal injuries in Panama City, FL.


4. The Accident Caused Measurable Damages

In accidents with no measurable damages, such as a fender bender between two vehicles that caused no property damage and left nobody injured, there is nothing to consider through a claims investigation. Upon speaking with a personal injury lawyer, you may discover that there is no more action for you to take. However, this is rarely the case in accidents, and there are often damages that a victim deserves compensation for that our lawyers can help you recover. These include things like medical bills and lost wages but go beyond these apparent impacts and extend to things such as pain and suffering and other emotional impacts of the car accident (or another incident). Much of an insurance claims investigation is, ostensibly, meant to identify these damages, although claims adjusters are actually tasked with the responsibility of reaching a settlement for as little as possible in order to save the insurance company as much money as possible. When you are represented by the attorneys at our firm after being injured, you can count on us working to identify every damage you have suffered.
