Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury Law Firm Client Reviews

Gregg has been great at representing me in my car accident case. He has worked diligently to maximize settlement and get it to me as quickly as possible. His assistant Jennifer has been incredible as well, coming to my house when I wasn’t able to travel to the office and answering my countless text messages quickly and patiently.

Rina

Mr Hollander, Gregg, was very vigorous in investigating my automobile accident. He also was instrumental in helping me with doctors and the opposing insurance company to insure I received financial help from an accident where I was driving correctly and was injured when my car was hit.

Kristie

Gregg Hollander went above and beyond what could have been expected, and even though it eventually turned out that there wasn’t a case, he continued to spend time, explaining the outcome and close all of the last details and continuing to offer advice.

Glenn

Gregg handled my case with precision from the first minute we spoke until the final settlement. He’s always available for you whenever needed, even to this day a few years later he still takes my phone calls immediately to answer any legal questions I might have. Highly recommended.

Fort Lauderdale Car Accidents

Car Accidents

Fort Lauderdale has some of the most congested roads in the state of Florida. It’s no surprise that auto accidents are commonplace.

For more than 28 years, our car accident lawyers have been standing up to these manipulative companies and forcing them to play by the rules. When you get wounded, we’ll do your insurance negotiations and work to get you every last dollar you deserve.

Fort Lauderdale Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle Accidents

In a rider’s eyes, South Florida is the picture-perfect place to ride a motorcycle. Unfortunately, other motorists on the road tend to disagree. Unhappy about sharing the road with bikes, drivers engage in dangerous behaviors – tailgating, cutting riders off, and even stopping short. These actions can and do cause motorcycle accidents. Riders must fight to defend themselves when the at-fault drivers point fingers and attempt to cast blame. Our lawyers will dig deep to gather evidence to prove that you’re not to blame and work to hold the negligent party fully accountable.

In Florida, those doctors (as well as their hospitals and insurance providers) can be held liable for the harm they cause. Our Fort Lauderdale medical malpractice attorneys have the experience you need to get justice.

how much money can i get if i have a fort lauderdale personal injury case

How Much Money Can I Get if I Have a Personal Injury Case?

Call Us at 954-287-0566

No two cases are the same. It will depend on:

  • How serious your injuries are
  • Your current and future costs and financial losses
  • The extent to which your quality of life has changed, and
  • Whether you contributed to the accident or injury in any way.

The more severe your injuries, and the greater your pain and suffering, the more a related personal injury case will typically be worth. Speak with an experienced personal injury lawyer to get a better sense of what your claim might be worth. At Hollander Law Firm, our Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyers work with experts – from nurses to rehab specialists to appraisers and more – to get the valuation process right.

How Long Do I Have to File a Lawsuit in Florida?


Injury victims typically have up to four years to file a civil lawsuit and demand compensation. There are times when the statute of limitations will be different.

For instance, medical malpractice and wrongful death claims are subject to a two-year window. You could have more time to take action if the victim is a minor. But, one thing always remains true: you lose the right to recover compensation if you miss the deadline that applies to your case. Contact our Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyers as soon as you can so that we can get your claim.

How Much Does a Personal Injury Lawyer Cost?


Most personal injury attorneys work on contingency, which means that there is no up front cost to hire them. Instead, they get paid if and when they win on your behalf. While it varies, lawyers typically charge between 33.3 and 40 percent of your compensation. Ultimately, the percentage will depend on the type of case you have, its degree of difficulty, and how much experience the lawyer has in the court.

Florida Personal Injury Laws

In Florida, anyone who contributes to an accident can be held legally and financially responsible for the consequences. This includes individuals who get hurt.

Under the state’s pure comparative negligence system, sharing fault for an accident means that:

  1. Your damages will be reduced, and
  2. You will be partly responsible for others’ injuries.

Your responsibility will be directly related to the degree of fault that’s allocated to you. If you’re assigned 25% of the blame, your damages will be reduced by 25%. At the same time, you will be 25% liable for damages sustained by others in that accident.

How Do I Prove Negligence in a Fort Lauderdale Personal Injury Case?

Most personal injury cases in Florida are based on the argument that one person (the plaintiff) has suffered injuries because another person or party (the defendant) was negligent. So, if you’ve suffered an injury, winning your case will really hinge on your potential to prove negligence.

Negligence is established when each of these four elements is proven:

  • Duty: The defendant owed you a duty of care.
  • Breach: The defendant failed to exercise a reasonable level of care under the circumstances.
  • Damage: You sustained an injury or damages.
  • Causation: Your damages are a direct and proximate consequence of the defendant’s conduct.

Proving negligence sounds pretty straightforward, right? In reality, it’s actually quite difficult – especially when the person you’re blaming for your injuries fights back. The best course of action involves letting our Fort Lauderdale injury lawyers represent you and fight for the compensation you deserve.

We have 28+ years of experience handling negligence claims and know the best building blocks and strategies for cases just like yours.

What Should I Do After an Accident in Broward County?

Your ability to recover compensation will be affected by everything you do after an accident in South Florida.

So, it’s really important to keep the following in mind:

  • Remain at the scene
  • Call the police to report the accident and request to have law enforcement sent to conduct a preliminary investigation
  • Seek medical attention as soon as you can – prompt care is essential for establishing a causal link between the accident and your injuries
  • Refuse to provide a recorded statement or answer any detailed questions posed by insurance adjusters
  • Reject low ball offers or, better yet, have all negotiations handled by a Fort Lauderdale accident attorney near you.

Calling an attorney is one of the most important things to do after an unexpected accident. Reach out to Hollander Law Firm to know how our experienced Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyers  can help you not only win your case but maximize your financial recovery.
