Personal Injury Lawyers In Melbourne, Florida
We Are Your Advocates with the Insurance Company
Most people who suffer an injury are looking to recover enough money to pay medical expenses and compensate for lost wages. Unfortunately, insurance companies rarely pay out enough compensation to cover the cost of a serious injury or a wrongful death. Accepting a settlement without consulting a lawyer may mean losing the opportunity to collect sufficient damages.
At Platt Hopwood Russell & Cole, our attorneys help clients determine the past and future cost of their losses. After a catastrophic injury or wrongful death, you need legal, medical and economic professionals to calculate the amount of compensation you and your family will need in the years to come. We will take care of this for you and relentlessly fight for damages from the negligent party. When negotiations are not sufficient, we are prepared to take the case to trial.
Personal injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. If we accept your case, you pay no fees unless we recover damages for you.
