Lawyer in St. Petersburg, Florida
Hardly anything is more stressful than suffering a serious personal injury, or a loved one’s death. The consequences are immediate, can be significant, and may continue indefinitely. Uncertainty breeds stress. How do I pay my medical bills? What if I can’t work? The answer depends largely on the type of injury and available insurance.

How to Become a Client of Our Law Firm
If you have recently experienced an injury, or a loved one was the victim of a wrongful death, which may have been even partially because of someone else’s fault, you need to take immediate action. In addition to tending to your physical and mental health, it is essential to follow these steps if possible. All are essential prior to getting the legal assistance you need:
- Obtain photographs of injuries and the scene of the accident. Examples of critical evidence is the presence of absence of skid marks; a substance on the floor; a worn/curled floor mat; poorly maintained area/steps/floor; faulty handrail; or other evidence of a defect or flaw in a product or other injury-causing agent.
- Obtain witness names, phone numbers, and addresses.
- Do not giving any statements to anyone other than law enforcement.
- Do not sign any documents unless first reviewed and approved by a Board Certified Civil Trial Attorney.
- Hire a Board Certified Civil Trial Attorney
