Helping You Pursue Compensation
If you have been injured in any type of accident caused by someone else's careless or reckless conduct, you may be entitled to compensation. The compensation we seek to recover should be sufficient to cover your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. At Dowd Law Firm, our Fort Walton Beach personal injury attorneys are committed to helping accident victims and their families recover fair compensation. We also believe that the responsible person, whether it is an individual or business, should pay for the serious, life-changing harm you have suffered as a result of their poor decisions.
Diligently Pursuing Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Claims
Under Florida personal injury law, you may be entitled to compensation for certain economic and noneconomic damages if they were caused by someone else's negligence. This term refers to a breach of reasonable standards of care, resulting in an injury to another party. In addition, if your injuries were caused by someone's gross negligence or recklessness — conduct going beyond regular negligence — you may be entitled to punitive damages. Florida has also adopted wrongful death laws, which allow the families of those who have died as a result of negligent conduct to obtain compensation from the responsible parties.
We represent individuals who have been injured in:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Boating accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Workplace accidents
Most personal injury and wrongful death claims involve negotiating with and potentially litigating against the other party's insurance company. Our experienced trial lawyers have more than 105 years of combined experience and we are prepared to stand up to insurance companies and large corporations on behalf of our clients.
