Since our founding in Pensacola in 1955, Levin Papantonio has earned a reputation as one of the most successful personal injury law firms in the nation. Our attorneys handle lawsuits throughout the country involving prescription drugs, medical devices, medical malpractice, auto accidents and business litigation.
Our Practice Areas
In order to succeed in a car accident claim in Florida, you will have to prove three things: (1) the other side acted in a negligent, reckless or intentional manner; (2) the other side caused your injury; and (3) the amount of your damages.
Your compensation includes physical pain and suffering; mental pain and suffering; medical expenses; and wage loss. In a wrongful death claim, the damages include medical and funeral expenses; mental pain and suffering; loss of support; and loss of future estate.
Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare provider fails to deliver the level of care that is keeping with accepted practices and procedures. It happens when a doctor, nurse or technician does something or fails to do something that is important to a patient's good care.
A medical malpractice attorney is one that focuses his or her legal practice on representing patients and families injured by healthcare negligence that should not have occurred, and which errors caused injuries.
If you are injured on the job in Florida, you are entitled to compensation, regardless of who is at fault. Worker's compensation laws require your employer compensate you if you are injured in the course of your employment.
Unlike other personal injury situations, you will not have to prove your employer did anything wrong in causing your injury. Instead, you simply must prove that you were an employee (not an independent contractor) at the time you were injured, and that your injury occurred during the course of your employment.
Comparing Personal Injury Attorneys
When hiring an attorney in a personal injury case, it's important to take your time and perform research. Review each law firm's website for its experience, resources, success and fees. Meet with the firms. Ask a lot of questions, and determine who you feel most comfortable trusting.
