How a Lawyer from Our Firm Can Help You Seek Compensation
The Florida legal system can be difficult to navigate, especially if you have never filed a personal injury claim before.
Our attorneys have handled many different types of claims, and we know how to pursue our clients’ cases with optimal results in mind. We will:
- Conduct a thorough investigation
- Collect information to support your case
- Pursue fair compensation on your behalf
Gather Evidence to Prove Fault
Holding someone accountable for the damages you incurred because of your back injury requires proof of fault. We begin this process by gathering specific information regarding where your injury occurred, how it happened, who was involved, and its consequences.
The documents and other items we may request from you and others involved with the incident may include:
- Videos or photos
- Witness statements
- Police reports
- Cell phone records
- Field sobriety tests
- Records of prior complaints
- Medical records
While we are building your case, we will gather all of the facts from you and others to help you seek compensation for your injuries.
Keep in mind that we will provide you with legal support and representation throughout the process, break down confusing laws and legal jargon, and answer your questions whenever they come up.
Contact the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine at any time, and our legal team will be happy to help you explore your options.
Pursue Financial Recovery
Once we have established that the other party negligently caused your back injury, we can pursue financial awards for you. Using the evidence we gathered and the information you provided to us, we will evaluate the total of your damages, which may include:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Loss of future income
- Pain and suffering
We will also send a demand letter to the liable party’s insurance company detailing your request for compensation. If they agree to our terms, you will receive the settlement. If they do not, we will continue to pursue a fair financial recovery until the insurance company agrees to compromise.
Often, we can settle back injury cases out of court. However, we will not hesitate to bring your case to trial if the liable party refuses to cover your damages during settlement proceedings.
We Fight Back Against Insurance Companies
Most of the time, the insurance company doesn’t accept the first request we make for compensation. Adjusters prioritize the company’s profit, so they often provide victims with as minimal a settlement as possible.
Adjusters might challenge your claim by saying that your injuries are not as extensive as you claim, you are at fault for the incident, or you do not qualify for a claim at all.
A Cape Coral back injury lawyer from our firm will combat these unethical practices with evidence of their client’s liability and by fighting for a fair settlement for you.
We Handle Back Injury Cases Caused by Negligence
The Legal Information Institute (LII) describes negligence as a person’s failure to use the standard of care needed to keep others safe. Some situations in which a person’s careless behavior can injure someone else include:
- Car accidents
- Slip and falls
- Nursing home abuse
- Product liability accidents
- Premises liability accidents
If the liable party could have prevented your back injury by taking reasonable steps to protect your safety, you may be eligible for compensation. Call the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine today at 1-800-747-3733 to speak with our legal team about your case.
Treatment for Back Injuries That Result from Accidents
While overuse causes some back injuries, many can be attributed to a specific accident. When this is the case, you might not have to pay for your own treatment out of pocket. We know how expensive seeking medical attention for a back injury can be.
Treatments for back injuries may include:
- Physical therapy
- Pain medications
Although these treatments may prove helpful, they typically come at a high cost, and victims often have to take time off work to receive and recover from medical care. A Cape Coral back injury lawyer from the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine may be able to help you recover the healthcare costs associated with your injuries.

In most cases, Florida Statute § 95.11(3)(a) gives negligence victims who suffer back injuries up to four years to file their claim against the liable party. However, we recommend starting your claim soon to avoid delays in your case and ensure that you do not miss your opportunity to sue.
When you suffer a back injury because someone else failed to act with reasonable care, the lawyers at the Law Offices of Anidjar & Levine can determine if you have a case. Contact our legal team anytime at 1-800-747-3733 for a free consultation.
