Fort Lauderdale Civil Litigation Lawyers
Most of our practice involves litigation of negligence claims. Negligence comes in many forms, from general negligence to products to medical malpractice and other forms of injury caused by another person.
Negligence requires a duty to another person, a breach of that duty, and proof that the breach of the duty is the cause of the damage you have suffered. Proof of negligence, or proof of negligence in one of its forms, may entitle you to damages.
If negligence can be established, and the party who injured you has either insurance or sufficient assets, the law may allow you to recover monetary damages. Putting together all these elements, providing and developing the correct proof, and finding sufficient funds to recover is where the process of compensation under our system begins.
At Winston Law Firm, we thoroughly investigate your claim, have it reviewed by the appropriate experts as needed, and then litigate your claim to resolution or jury verdict, depending on what is right for you and your family. We believe in focused individual attention to our clients. Our attorneys and staff of fifteen trained legal secretaries and paralegals work together with you to effectively represent your legal rights. We do everything possible to maximize your recovery as quickly as possible.
Commercial Litigation Lawyers
Many civil cases arise from business or consumer-related disputes. We have represented claimants in commercial litigation from individual consumers to small businesses to Las Vegas Casino owners to banks and insurance companies.
Business persons and companies don’t always agree, and that’s where we come in. We will partner with your business in many types of commercial claims and litigation, including:
- Breach of contract
- Landlord-tenant disputes
- Fraud claims
- Legal malpractice
If you have been wronged, we will usually be able to partner with you on a contingency fee basis. If you are owed money and we can collect it for you, we try to give you a choice between an hourly retainer and a contingent fee. Justice does not have to be reserved only for the wealthy. In fact, we pride ourselves on representing “the little guy” in most of our cases. If your case has merit – we want to help you!
Wrongful Death Attorney
Perhaps the most significant loss a client can suffer is that of the death of a loved one or family member. Wrongful death in Florida is a death caused by the negligence or misconduct of another party. Wrongful death can occur due to any number of causes such as car crashes, medical malpractice, or dangerous products.
Due to changes in statutes of limitation when an injury results in a death, it is imperative to take legal action and to retain qualified attorneys as soon as possible after an incident that results in the demise of a relative or loved one. If a loved one’s life is lost through the negligence or misconduct of another, we stand ready to do everything necessary to recover everything that you are legally entitled to.
Insurance Claims and Bad Faith Attorney
Quite often, legitimate claims brought by an insured against its carrier for “first party” benefits under a contract between you and your insurance company are denied. If the insurance company denies benefits for any reason, we can help. We have brought claims against insurance companies on behalf of clients in the areas of property damage, disability benefits, medical coverage and many other areas.
If an insurance company refuses to provide coverage for its own insured who may have injured you, the insurance company may have acted in “bad faith” under Florida law. If so, we stand ready to take the insurance carrier to court to make sure you obtain the coverage and recover the damages to which you are entitled.
Some cases require range insurance experts with industry knowledge of coverage provisions, underwriting standards, or overlapping claims. Other cases demand experts in particular areas of coverage, such as windstorm and flood damage, marine claims, or any other matter that results in a claims denial of benefits. In every case, Winston Law Firm retains the correct experts, and applies our years of accumulated experience to pursue a satisfactory result in your case.
