Jacksonville Injury Lawyers

A Jacksonville, Florida, Law Firm Focusing on Injury, Insurance and Nursing Home Claims.

“Justice. Served.” Is more than a motto; it is our mission statement.

Justice can come in many forms. It can mean recovering lost wages and medical bills for a single mother injured in a car accident. It can mean holding a nursing home accountable for abuse of an elderly resident or forcing an insurance company to uphold its end of the bargain after wrongfully denying payment.

In a perfect world, justice would take care of itself, but, unfortunately, that is not always the case. That is where we come in. Our injury attorneys in Jacksonville have spent decades holding insurance companies, nursing home operators and careless drivers accountable for the misery and expense they cause.

Justice often requires that cases get tried in a court of law. Although most cases are settled out of court, hiring an attorney willing and able to try your case if it cannot be fairly settled is an absolute must. Our attorneys have tried cases in federal, state and bankruptcy courts. We have tried cases involving vehicle accidents, medical malpractice, civil rights, real estate disputes and insurance disputes.

While our attorneys handling injury cases in Jacksonville now represent individuals, we used to represent insurance companies. This means that we know insurers’ strategies, tactics and vulnerabilities. We now put that knowledge to use for you.

Personal Injury

Our firm focuses on the quality of cases we handle – not the quantity of cases. We do not advertise on television, billboards or radio. We never will. We do not try to undertake the large volume of accident cases that some advertising attorneys handle. We pride ourselves on providing our clients with one-on-one service with an attorney.

Your case will not be handed off to a paralegal. From the very start, your first meeting will be with an attorney not an “investigator.” You will be able to speak with your Jacksonville injury lawyer, either in person or on the phone, whenever you need to. You may find you do not need to call us often as it is our practice to keep our clients informed about the status of their cases.

Suffering injuries due to the carelessness of a business, nursing home or vehicle driver can cause an incredible burden. Often, the injured person faces lost wages, doctor’s appointments, transportation issues, medical bills, and disabilities, not to mention severe pain. Given these stressors, the complexities of preserving one’s rights, investigating details, preserving evidence and completing paperwork can be overwhelming, to say the least. When you hire our law firm, we take the burden and stress off of your shoulders so you can focus on healing. Hiring our firm for any type of injury case costs you nothing unless we make a recovery for you.

Handling personal injury claims effectively is not something every attorney has the experience and resources to do. Our attorneys have handled injury cases since the beginning of their careers – starting by representing insurance companies. Having done so, provides us the perspective and tactics of insurers, experience that has proved to be extremely helpful in representing injured people.

Our Jacksonville accident and injury attorneys handle a wide variety of personal injury matters including those arising from: nursing home neglect; car accidents; boating accidents; trucking accidents; motorcycle accidents; slip and falls; dog bites; workplace accidents; attacks occurring as a result of inadequate security; defective products; on the job injuries; stairway falls; prescription errors; assisted living facility abuse; medical malpractice; premises liability; and uninsured motorist claims.

Assisted Living Facility and Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect

Bedsores, falls, medication errors, infections, malnutrition and even death can occur at understaffed nursing homes. In prosecuting nursing home abuse and neglect, the lawyers at The Lawrence Law Group have learned that labor is the greatest expense for nursing home operators and, all too often, the first thing to be cut in an effort to increase profits. Short-staffed nurses and assistants are assigned more people that they can possibly care for and the result is unnecessary injury and death to our most vulnerable citizens. Thing will change when the cost of neglect exceeds the money saved by understaffing. We help to effect that change.

It is sad to think that nursing home and assisted living facility neglect and abuse occur, but unfortunately it does, and many times, it goes unreported. While some facilities provide satisfactory care, others are understaffed and have unsafe and unsanitary conditions. Here in Jacksonville, we have seen the majority of poor care and neglect provided by a minority of nursing homes, mostly those for which the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services has assigned one or two stars out of five.

Having us to prosecute your nursing home claim costs you nothing unless we make a financial recovery for you. Once we accept your nursing home negligence case, we have the matter reviewed by an expert registered nurse to determine if the nursing home was negligent or abusive. If the expert finds neglect or abuse, we hold the operators of the nursing home accountable. We advocate for our citizens who are least able to stand up for themselves. It is a shame that having to do so is even necessary.

Because assisted living facility and nursing home abuse and neglect cases are subject to strict regulations, including requirements that must be met prior to filing suit, hiring a lawyer with experience in nursing home and medical negligence claims is critical. Our injury attorneys in Jacksonville have both the experience and resources to obtain justice for victims of negligent nursing home care or abuse.

Insurance Disputes

You paid your premiums for months or even years and now your insurer refuses to pay a legitimate claim. Our Jacksonville insurance lawyers handle cases where an insurance company refuses to live up to its end of the bargain. We have successfully represented clients who were left with no option but to sue to get the insurance benefits and coverage they purchased and deserve. We represent clients in the Jacksonville area who have disputes with their own insurers for all types of insurance policies including homeowners, automobile, life, health, commercial, bodily injury, disability, general liability, credit, and uninsured motorist.

The Florida Statutes provide that if a person is successful in a lawsuit against his or her insurer, the insurance company must pay that person’s attorney fees. In most instances, this allows us to represent clients in insurance disputes without charging them anything unless we win.

Common insurance disputes that we handle include: the extent of home repairs requires after a hurricane or storm; an insurer’s attempt to rescind the coverage based on an alleged misrepresentation in an insurance application; whether a death occurred as a result of an accident as opposed to a natural case (for accidental life or credit life insurance policies); and whether a policy provides coverage for specific types of personal property.

Wrongful Death Claims

Tragically, and all too frequently, families must cope with the unnecessary death of a loved one due to others’ carelessness. Apart from incomprehensible grief, the family must also deal with medical and funeral expenses, and often, the loss of income. Our Jacksonville injury lawyers have handled wrongful death cases resulting from: car accidents; trucking accidents; nursing home abuse; and medical malpractice.

In Florida, death claims are subject to the Wrongful Death Act, which specifies the types of damages that can be recovered. Wrongful death claims have a shortened statute of limitations of only two years, instead of the four year statute of limitations provided for general negligence claims that do not involve death.

Furthermore, in order to pursue a wrongful death act case, a probate estate must be opened. Our firm incurs this expense for our clients to hire expert probate attorneys to handle the estate. The expenses for doing this, as with all of the expenses incurred in prosecuting the claim are paid by our firm and only repaid to us if we win the case.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
I have known Mr. Lawrence for several years and in my opinion he is the most professional and trustworthy lawyer I have ever known. I have had dealings with other lawyers but they were not as good as Mr. Lawrence. I would highly recommend him. Carla
★★★★★
I was referred to Greg by a coworker after I received a bad injury from an auto accident and was so pleased with Greg, Amanda, and staff. They literally took care of everything for me while I was healing and kept me updated every step of the way. Calls and emails were always accepted and returned promptly and they were extremely patient and helpful with any questions and concerns that I had. Should I ever need legal assistance again I will definitely be calling him and referring him to family and friends. Amie M.
★★★★★
I had a difficult disability case, and was referred to Greg by a judge. As an experienced lawyer myself, I was apprehensive about using someone I didn't know. As it turned out, however, I could not have been more pleased. Greg mastered the case in no time, and was nothing short of brilliant in getting me a substantial settlement. He's a lawyer's lawyer, and I recommend him highly and without reservation. Steve
★★★★★
I would like to take a moment to say thanks to Greg, and his staff for doing an excellent job with my deceased mothers nursing home case. After hiring two other law firms my brothers and I decided to hire Greg. This was the best decision that we made regarding this case. Greg took the time to get to know who our deceased mother was, and the important facts involving our claim. As a result Greg was successful in resolving our claim to our satisfaction. Greg is the best attorney that I have ever met! I would highly recommend hiring Greg for any nursing home, or any other claims. Falsario Arnold
★★★★★
Of all the things that pleased me about Greg was that he was always available to me. If I called or emailed, I spoke to him and wasn't pushed off to one of his paralegals or assistants (although they were very helpful as well). I felt like I had a lawyer - not a factory. Scott
