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.

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.

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.

Any injury can have a significant impact on your ability to perform meaningful work, earn a living, and enjoy your life. When someone else causes an accident that leads to your injuries, you can seek compensation for a range of damages. This way, you may not have to take on the financial impacts of someone else’s negligent or irresponsible behavior.

Tallahassee, FL, personal injury lawyers step in to give you the means to address someone else’s negligence. A legal consultation with our team can show you how best to bring a personal injury claim forward before a civil judge. Fasig | Brooks’ track extensive experience makes it easy for us to make you part of the family. You can trust us to tackle your case with gusto.

Personal Liability Insurance and Your Personal Injury Accident

Often, the party responsible for your accident may be protected from personal liability with an insurance policy. 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.

Personal liability protection does not free a person from the responsibilities they have to you in the wake of a personal injury accident. Instead, you can still file your personal injury claim with both your provider and local courts.

Filing for insurance coverage is a straightforward process. 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 need to approach your case aggressively. Taking proactive measures can make the legal matter of your lawsuit simpler to address. Specifically, you can:

  • Calculate your damages
  • Negotiate for a settlement
  • Discuss the merits of pursuing a personal injury lawsuit

All of these processes help you secure maximum compensation after an accident.

Insurance companies know that personal injury victims have a lot on their minds when they file a claim. As such, most providers will make an initial offer for far less than the victim deserves. In extending an insufficient settlement offer, insurance companies hope to settle negotiations without spending time in court.

There are benefits to accepting an early settlement, of course. You can put that support toward your medical bills while using it to supplement your lost wages. However, most early settlement offers come with waivers. Signing these waivers can absolve the insurer and their client from any additional legal action, regardless of whether additional information emerged later.

Contact an Attorney Before Accepting Any Settlement Offers

Before resolving a personal injury claim, you must be confident in the settlement that a liable party offers you. It’s easier to know when an insurance provider may be underselling the value of your case if you calculate your possible financial recovery ahead of time.

Our personal injury attorneys can perform these calculations for you, ensuring that your economic and non-economic losses make it into your final sum. In general, the financial compensation you receive in personal injury matters should cover:

  • Medical expenses related to your accident
  • Property damage, repair, and replacement
  • Lost wages and opportunities to seek out other forms of employment
  • At-home care needed to restore your previous quality of life
  • Emotional distress
  • Pain and suffering
  • Wrongful death, if applicable
  • Funeral expenses, if applicable

Our personal injury law firm uses your bills alongside state-approved multipliers to calculate the value of your personal injury case. You can discuss how you might argue for your right to these losses with our legal team.

Contact Fasig | Brooks To Connect With a Personal Injury Attorney in Tallahassee

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

This could not be further from the truth. Partnering with an attorney before initiating an insurance claim is one of the best ways to work toward the financial compensation you rightfully deserve. Our legal team works to keep you from taking on any stress or emotional burden that the legal process might induce.

Contact the award-winning team at Fasig | Brooks to get the support you deserve after an accident someone else caused. We’re prepared to put our decades of experience to work for you.

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 you see your accident addressed below or not, you can always contact our team. One of our attorneys can help you prepare to fight for fair compensation.


Car Accidents

Florida car accident statistics

Drivers in private and commercial vehicles are both obligated to protect the parties around them from undue harm. Unfortunately, not everyone takes this duty seriously. In 2019, there were 401,867 car accidents reported in Florida. 7,107 of those accidents took place in Leon County. This means that, on average, there are 1,101 car accidents each day in Florida, with 19 taking place in Leon County.

While many of us make it safely to and from our destinations each day, these statistics show many people do not. The danger inherent in driving on the road can often be blamed on the weather. However, negligence is one of the most common forces behind car accidents to date.Roadway negligence takes on a variety of forms. Drivers who speed, drive while intoxicated or inexperienced, or who rage behind the wheel all put you in harm’s way. 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

Motorcycles don’t benefit from the same structural protections that cars do. As such, a motorcycle accident typically cause more severe injuries than an auto accident. A rider’s only protective measures are the clothes and equipment they are wearing.

Florida is routinely shown to be one of the most dangerous states for fatal motorcycle accidents. This may be attributed to the lax helmet laws in our state or 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 Florida roads.


Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice comes in many forms. Medical malpractice lawsuits can address:

  • A doctor’s failure to accurately diagnose an illness
  • Prescription errors
  • Product defects
  • Surgical mistakes
  • Inappropriate courses of treatment

Medical professionals cannot guarantee positive medical outcomes. They are, however, legally required to provide medical care based on existing best practices. If you suspect that medical professionals failed to avoid undue harm to you or a related patient, contact a personal injury attorney in Tallahassee.

Florida Damage Caps

Florida caps non-economic damages at $500,000 for most accident victims’ malpractice cases. This includes cases addressing the most common types of injuries, including birth injuries, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burn injuries, and injuries from failed medical devices.

If your instance of medical malpractice resulted in the wrongful death or permanent vegetative state of a loved one, however, your non-economic damages cap at $1 million.

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 toward getting the money you deserve for this avoidable tragedy.


Premises Liability Injuries

When you visit someone else’s property, your role on their land dictates your rights. This is the case whether you visit a private residence, commercial location, or government building. Florida breaks its visitors down into the following three categories:

  • Invitees
  • Licensees
  • Trespassers

As an invitee or licensee, you have the legal right to expect that a landowner will take precautions to protect you from harm during your visit. Even trespassers are protected from deliberate violence – and child trespassers benefit from the attractive nuisance doctrine.

 

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are the most common premises liability cases. These losses typically stem 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 your losses. Working with a personal injury attorney will give you a clear understanding of how to best move forward with your case. In the meanwhile, you can focus on getting the medical care you need to recover.


Product Liability Cases

Many consumer protections in the United States require companies to disclose all potential hazards that come with the normal use of their product. This process bars a company from engaging in false advertising. It also holds businesses accountable for injuries stemming from defects in the product or marketing.

Even so, you may find yourself contending with injuries from a defective product. When debating how to respond to a company’s release of a dangerous product, you can come to our attorneys for guidance. Our personal injury lawyers can alleviate some of the stress that comes along with a defective product’s catastrophic injuries.

We can work together to bring instances of false advertising and product failure before a civil judge. You can learn more about this process in an initial consultation with our team.

You Deserve Experienced Representation

Taking on a massive company can be extremely intimidating for a single victim. That’s why partnering with a Tallahassee personal injury attorney is one of the best ways to get immediate legal advice. Our entire team can carve a clear path toward the resolution of your case.


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 you stay safe.

Unfortunately, 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, Tallahassee personal injury lawyer can help prove fault and liability. Once our law office establishes fault, we can help you fight to get a fair settlement for the many damages you have endured. Our legal representation can prevent an insurance company from trying to undersell the value of an accident victim’s claim.

Car insurance company representatives will work aggressively to settle Tallahassee personal injury claims against their clients. These teams want your case addressed as quickly and affordably as possible, and may engage in some unsavory practices to see their ambitions through.

Fortunately, your personal injury lawyer will combat these tactics to get you the money you deserve.


Bicycle Collisions

Riding a bicycle in Tallahassee is a great way to get fresh air, see the sights, and stretch your muscles. All the while, you can get to and from the places you need to go without spending money on gas.

That said, cyclists face significant risks every time they take to the roads. No matter what additional laws the city puts in place, it cannot account for every form of negligence that might endanger a cyclist.Many cities are focusing on reducing and ultimately eliminating cyclist deaths. Until this is a reality, though, 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 category of personal injury cases. It addresses any fatal injury that another person caused through negligence, recklessness, or criminal behavior.

We want to give survivors every possible opportunity to secure compensation after the loss of a loved one. This means helping you contend with the expenses tied to a loved one’s passing. Tallahassee personal injury lawyers want to help you cover loss of support, retirement contributions, medical costs, and funerary expenses.

Calculating the long-term impacts of wrongful death can be difficult, especially as survivors try to work through the grief of this unexpected loss. Partnering with an attorney through these types of personal injury claims is important for both your mental health and your legal options. You can discuss the details of your wrongful death claim during an initial consultation with our team.


Frequently Asked Questions About Tallahassee Personal Injuries

The following are a few of the many different questions that a personal injury attorney commonly addresses during an initial case consultation. Remember that the answers provided below are not intended as legal advice. Instead, you should use them to get an idea of how you might benefit from our legal assistance.


How much is my personal injury case worth?

The value of your personal injury case is based on the details of your accident. Typically, calculations start with major costs like medical expenses and lost wages. From there, a Tallahassee personal injury lawyer can 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. That said, some studies estimate that 95% of all personal injury claims are resolved before making it to trial. 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 manner. You can also receive punitive damages in cases wherein a liable party showed significant disregard for the safety of others.

A personal injury attorney in Tallahassee will not include these potential damages in settlement negotiations. However, we 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. Pure comparative fault allows 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.
