Broward County Personal Injury Lawyer
Broward County attracts local residents as well as tourists to experience activities ranging from nature and wildlife areas to museums and historical sites such as the New River Inn and the S.S. Copenhagen shipwreck. Fort Lauderdale is the county seat of Broward County. Gone are the days of “Spring Break” for college students as the city actively sought to remove itself as a destination by passing strict laws. Broward County hosts concerts and art shows in Fort Lauderdale’s Riverwalk Arts & Entertainment District, which runs from the beach to the downtown area. It is increasingly known as a popular destination for people seeking the resort lifestyle.

Often, when someone is injured by a dangerous condition, that dangerous condition is caused by lack of care (or negligence as it is referred to in legal terms) by another person or company.
Our clients have called us for help after being injured by:
- Tripping and falling in public places or on private property
- Slipping and falling on slippery floors in hotels, attractions, and museums
- Motor vehicle, motorcycle, or bicycle accidents
- Boating accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Defective products
Money damages might be available to injury victims and their families if an injury occurs due to the fault or negligence of another person or business. When an individual is faced with medical bills and everyday expenses and is unable to work due to injuries suffered, he or she can quickly fall behind.
If another party is to blame for the accident or incident that caused your injuries, you may be entitled to money damages to compensate you for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Property damage
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional distress or mental anguish
Our attorneys at Gerson & Schwartz have been representing our clients for 40 years, helping them to recover compensation for their injuries.If Your Loved One Dies In An Accident
Our clients include grieving spouses, children, parents, or other family members who have experienced the loss of a loved one due to an accident. It can be very challenging to deal with the financial and practical realities of the loss while struggling with shock and grief.
We can file a wrongful death lawsuit on your behalf, as allowed by Florida law, against the person or persons responsible for your family member’s death. Such lawsuit is filed on behalf of surviving members of the family, who may receive different types of money damages, depending on their relationship to the deceased person.
It is important to meet with an attorney as soon as possible following the death of a loved one, as wrongful death lawsuits are time-sensitive and complicated.Should You Call a Lawyer When You or a Loved One Suffers an Injury?
Following an accident, people are often upset, confused, and uncertain how to prioritize everything that needs to be done – from filing insurance claims to dealing with medical care and medical bills. Interacting with another person or company's insurance company can be daunting, and you may inadvertently harm your own interests if admissions are unintentionally made, or information is provided that helps another party disclaim liability.
It is best to contact a lawyer as soon as possible following an accident due to time constraints on filing a lawsuit and to preserve your claim. Filing a lawsuit in a Florida court is a complicated task that our experienced Broward County personal injury attorneys at Gerson & Schwartz have undertaken cases on behalf of clients for more than 40 years. Our attorneys can:
- Thoroughly investigate the incident to identify all potentially responsible parties to sue.
- Collect and preserve evidence and document identities and contact information of witnesses.
- Contact and negotiate with the defendant’s insurer.
- Attempt to settle the case without going to court.
- File a lawsuit.
Even if some time has passed and you have taken some steps but now feel overwhelmed, one of our experienced lawyers can take over your case.Contact a Lawyer in Broward County For A Free Consultation
