Personal Injury

When you are injured in Florida

At the law offices of Belcher & Epstein in Fort Myers, we stand ready to champion your cause when you have been injured by the carelessness or negligence of another person or business.  We have extensive experience and are thoroughly versed in the specifics of Florida personal injury law.  We will do our best to help you obtain the best compensation available under the law.
Under Florida law, negligence is the failure to act in a way that an ordinary reasonable person would act in the same or similar circumstances.  The key word is reasonable.  For example, if something slippery has spilled on the floor, the failure to clean up the mess within a reasonable time would be negligent.  So would a driver operating a vehicle recklessly, resulting in your injury.  A party claiming damages for negligence must demonstrate that he or she suffered an injury as a result of someone else’s negligence.

When to consult a personal injury lawyer

If you have been injured and are unsure of whether your injury was caused by negligence or the fault of another party, you should consult a lawyer specializing in these matters quickly.  Florida law requires that you make your claim within a specified period of time, so it is important that you engage an experienced lawyer in your case immediately.
When you are injured, you can be sure that the insurance companies for the offending party are going to try to settle your case for as little compensation as possible.  Remember that they do not have your interests in mind.  We have been fighting insurance companies on the part of the injured for decades.  We make sure that you have knowledgeable and forceful advocates on your side to get you the compensation you deserve.
