Negligence in Personal Injury Cases

As a prominent Fort Myers personal injury law firm, Pittman Law Firm, P.L. has represented thousands of victims of many types of negligence. If you have been injured due to the negligence of a person or corporation there are four elements that must be established in order to recover financial compensation.

Was there a duty to you to perform a service, or provide a safe environment?

  • Did the responsible party neglect to conform to an expected standard of conduct in relation to you?
  • Was the neglected duty the cause of the harm to you?
  • Finally, were you harmed by the neglect?

These are questions we will ask when you contact us for an initial case evaluation so that we can understand the scope of your injuries and advise you regarding your claim.

How a Fort Myers Injury Lawyer Can Help

Any case of negligence that led to injuries could be challenged, the amount of the damages reduced or other problems that must be solved by a legal professional. Whether the negligent party is a corporation or an individual, we will be dealing with insurance company attorneys who have a mandate to reduce their client's financial exposure.

At Pittman Law Firm, P.L., our Fort Myers personal injury lawyers pride ourselves on our personalized and focused attention to our clients' needs and as a result, we have been very successful in recovering the financial compensation that our clients deserve. We have recovered millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts.

In cases of negligence in which the evidence is clear, there is usually an effort to settle early, for the lowest possible amount. Injured victims may be offered a settlement that is far too low, and without legal representation to manage the situation, could accept such an offer. Never sign any papers or allow access to your medical records without first retaining counsel. We frequently settle cases out of court if that is in the best interests of our clients. We fully prepare for trial and often that is enough to show the opposition the futility of defending their position.

We look forward to speaking with you to learn the facts of your injury claim, and determining the negligent party. We offer you over 20 years of experience and will provide you with our honest opinion of what kind of damages you can expect based on your particular circumstances.

I had a lot of stress, depression, you name it. Pittman Law Firm was there for me literally ALL THE WAY!! There were many times I wanted to give up, but Kristin always found the best way for me to have the best doctors and care.
