- File your claim or lawsuit
We take on all responsibilities related to a claim or lawsuit. In doing so, we want you to worry about getting better, whatever that means for you. We take care of everything else.
We Document and Calculate Your Losses
The losses from your pedestrian accident will determine what amount of compensation we seek for you. Losses can come from either a serious injury or a wrongful death.
As Florida Statutes § 768.21 explains, a wrongful death may entitle you to coverage for:
- The loss of your loved one’s financial support to date, including interest, and future loss of financial support
- The loss of a spouse’s companionship
- Pain and suffering your loss caused
- A child’s loss of parental guidance and instruction
- The deceased’s accident-related medical care
- The deceased’s funeral
We will obtain any supporting documentation of these losses.
We will also document and calculate the value of your losses for a non-fatal injury. These losses may include:
- Emergency medical care
- Medical care to diagnose your injuries
- The cost of rehabilitation for your injuries
- Lost wages
- Losses from a permanent disability, including diminished earning power
We will determine the value of your economic and non-economic losses. We may employ various experts to make these calculations.
We Negotiate Compensation for You
If the liable party does not immediately offer you a fair settlement, then we will start the negotiations process. We can handle these obligations for you.
Such negotiations may call for us to present evidence on your behalf. We will also evaluate settlement offers that you receive and counter any offers that are too low.
You may not have any prior experience negotiating a financial settlement, but our team does. We will handle the process for you and may ultimately recover the compensation you deserve.
A Clearwater pedestrian accident lawyer from our firm will handle every step of your case.

We Will Determine Who Is Liable for Your Pedestrian Accident
We handle every aspect of your case, which means we work to determine who is at fault for your pedestrian accident.
Motorists have a duty of care to avoid striking pedestrians, no matter the circumstance. As part of your case, we will make the case that a motorist was negligent by striking you or your loved one.
Actions that we may cite as forms of negligence are:
- Distracted driving
- Illegally entering a crosswalk
- Driving while intoxicated
- Driving into a bike lane
- Failing to give you or your loved one the right-of-way
A motorist who strikes a pedestrian may be at fault for the accident. However, their insurer could be liable for your damages.
Other Parties Could Be Responsible for Your Damages
A government entity, such as the city of Clearwater, could be responsible for dangerous road conditions. It may share liability for any confusing road conditions that contributed to your accident.
Others who could be liable for a pedestrian accident are:
- A mechanic whose faulty work contributed to a vehicle malfunction
- A vehicle manufacturer who is liable for a defect
- An employer whose employee caused your pedestrian accident while on the job
- Anyone else with direct or indirect responsibility for your accident
One or more of these parties could owe you compensation for your losses.
We Could Recover Awards Without Going to Court
You may not have to go to court to recover compensation. The American Bar Association (ABA) explains that the significant majority of settlements end with a settlement, not with a trial. Even if your case requires a trial, we will handle your case. From there, our primary goal will be to obtain a court award. Yet, regardless of the path that your case follows, you will not pay unless we win.
Our team works for a contingency fee. This means you do not pay us up front. You agree to pay us a percentage of your winnings. If we do not secure compensation through a settlement, judgment, or other means, then you do not have to pay us.
This arrangement allows us to choose your case based on its strength. You deserve justice, and we will fight for that justice when we take you on as a client.
