We Are Experienced Litigators

One of the things that sets us apart from other Florida personal injury lawyers is that we will not hesitate to take our clients’ cases to court. Many personal injury law firms become settlement mills. They focus on settling their clients’ accident and victims claims as quickly as possible. This leads to many clients receiving cash quickly but missing out on much more compensation that could have been obtained through a more aggressive and patient approach.

When you have suffered a serious injury, you want to work with a personal injury lawyer in Florida who will do whatever they can within the law to obtain you the maximum compensation. This often means being willing to file a lawsuit, and when necessary, taking the case to trial. Over the years, we have handled more than 350 jury trials. Few firms can match our track record of successful litigation.

We Work With Leading Experts to Prove Your Damages

Another factor that sets us apart from other personal injury law firms is the connections we have made with nationally known and respected experts in a wide range of fields. We partner with the experts necessary to prove the other party’s liability and your damages. This may include experts in medicine, physical and vocational rehabilitation, mental health, law enforcement, accident reconstruction, management, engineering, security, maritime, and economics.

Our expert connections ensure you have the proof you need to obtain the maximum compensation possible for your physical, psychological, and financial injuries.

We Believe in Giving Back to the Community

At Gerson & Schwartz P.A., we believe in giving back to the community. Our lawyers have held positions in non-profit organizations for the purpose of protecting and advancing accident and crime victims’ rights.

We use our experience to advocate for improved regulations at the local, state, federal, and international levels. We understand that public safety often relies on regulations that push for best practices and awareness, and which hold negligent parties responsible for their harmful conduct.

We Have Been Recognized by Our Peers

Gerson & Schwartz P.A. is proud of the firm’s success over the years and the reputation we have garnered for our professionalism and dedication to our clients.

I am a lawyer in Massachusetts. I had a case to refer against a cruise line in Florida and did my homework on which firm to represent the client. Let me take the guessing out of it for you. Call this law firm and sign up. Brandon Parrelli, Google User
A big shout out to Nick Gerson & Schwartz for helping me navigate my care after a fall against a major cruise ship. They took care of me all along the way and saw me through such a very hard time. I highly recommend their firm if you are looking for a firm that truly cares about you. 5 Stars all the way! Janna Wright, Google User
Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
