As our Jacksonville personal injury, insurance and nursing home abuse lawyers have practiced law for decades, we are able to answer a host of questions about car accidents, personal injury protection, insurance coverages and nursing home claims. If you have any questions about an injury, insurance or nursing home claim, please call for a free consultation.

Law firms in Jacksonville frequently advertise that they provide free consultations; however, they may not allow you to speak directly with an attorney. Furthermore, you may not get your questions answered once the law firm realizes your question does not involve a case they want to handle.

Our attorneys routinely field calls from people that have disputes that we are not interested in handling. The most common example is when someone calls who has suffered damage to their car from an accident in which no one was injured. If you find yourself in such a situation, please do not hesitate to call.

We also get a lot of calls from family members of residents in nursing homes where the family member is concerned about the lack of attention their loved one is receiving even though their loved one has not (yet) suffered any personal injury. We are happy to take these calls as severe injury or death from nursing home neglect can often be prevented by: transferring the resident to another, higher rated, nursing home; calling for a care plan meeting with the nursing home’s director of nursing, the nurse unit manager and the attending physician; or by transferring the resident to a hospital.
