A Florida Personal Injury Firm that Is a Cut above the Rest
If you live in Florida, you are probably bombarded with ads for personal injury lawyers everywhere you turn—on the television, on the radio, and on billboards. With so many different options, how do you know which attorney you can trust? Unfortunately, not all law firms are created equal—many personal injury lawyers are after the pay cut and rely on staff to handle most cases.
At Luhrsen Law, we value compassion above compensation, ideals over victory, and respect above riches. Our firm believes that every client should be treated like family, and that family comes before all else. At Luhrsen Law, we combine the resources and expertise of a large firm with the compassion and caring of a small firm. When you join the Luhrsen Law family, you’ll have the support of a dedicated and skilled attorney every step of the way as you navigate your personal injury case.
Don’t Let Florida Insurance Companies Take Advantage
Rather than seeking the aid of a personal injury lawyer, many injured individuals attempt to collect settlements from insurance companies on their own. More often than not, this is a mistake. When a victim does not have legal representation, insurers will often try to take advantage of the situation in an attempt to save their company money. In such cases, victims and their families can receive a meager settlement, insufficient for covering even the most basic medical expenses.
Jeffrey Luhrsen and his team at Luhrsen Law have years of experience working with insurance companies and strive to employ the right strategies and resources in order to secure you the maximum settlement to which you are entitled. They will handle the insurance companies, paperwork, and other details, so you can devote your efforts to recovery and reorganizing your life.
Experienced Legal Representation for All Areas of Personal Injury Law
There are many reasons for pursuing a personal injury case in Florida. Some of the most common personal injury cases include:
Motor vehicle accidents. This could include car, truck, motorcycle, and bicycle accidents.
DUI crashes and victims’ rights. When a driver’s intoxication leads to a crash, it’s more than just an accident. By choosing to drink and drive, a driver is intentionally choosing to put lives in danger, and should be held accountable for their hugely destructive decision.
Texting while driving and other distracted driving accidents. Distracted driving accidents occur when a driver’s focus is diverted by technology or other types of distractions, such as smoking, eating, or looking at something happening outside the car. This dangerous behavior has become increasingly common in Florida, which is why Jeff Luhrsen and his team at Luhrsen Law launched their iPromise campaign—a campaign dedicated to encouraging teens and their parents and all of us not to text and drive.
Pedestrian accidents. These types of accidents often involve pedestrians or bicyclists who have been hit by heavy motor vehicles. In many cases, victims of pedestrian accidents sustain serious and even fatal injuries.
Liquor liability incidents. Liquor liability incidents typically occur when adults wrongfully provide minors with liquor, whether at a house party or bar. This can have destructive consequences, particularly if the teen gets behind the wheel. In other situations, a bar or restaurant that overserves a patron known to have an alcohol problem can be responsible for a drunk driving crash that the patron subsequently causes.
Bad faith insurance claims. This refers to a situation when an insurance company unfairly and illegally denies your claim. In such cases, an attorney can investigate the situation and ensure the settlement you deserve is delivered.
Cemetery desecration. Cemetery desecration occurs when the remains of a deceased person are mishandled or abused by someone you entrusted with their care. This could involve burying the body in the wrong place, overselling plots, or damaging graves.
Negligent security. If you or someone you care about is attacked on another person’s or business’s property, the proper owner may be considered to be partially responsible and as such can be charged with negligent security.
Serious personal injury. Arguably, all personal injury cases are serious. However, when an accident threatens to do permanent damage to your wellbeing, life, or family’s financial standing, it’s especially important to seek legal help.
Wrongful death. Wrongful death refers to a death caused by the negligent or reckless act of another individual or organization. While no form of monetary compensation can amend this tragic type of loss, seeking just settlement can help with financial implications and ensure justice is served, which can prevent future accidents of a similar nature.
Regardless of the type of accident you have suffered, it’s in the best interest of you and your family to seek representation. Jeffrey Luhrsen and his staff can provide you with the guidance, counsel, support, and legal services you need to make sure your rights are protected and your compensation is just.
Committed to Protecting the Southwest and Central Florida Community
Distracted driving has become alarmingly prevalent in Florida and the country as a whole, with an average of 660,000 Americans using their cell phones while driving at any moment during the day. As distracted driving becomes increasingly common, there have been more and more reported incidents of serious and often fatal accidents caused by this type of behavior. Young drivers, in particular, have been the purveyors and victims of distracted driving, since they are generally less experienced drivers and tend to use technology more frequently.
In response to this pressing issue, Luhrsen Law has launched a campaign to promote safe driving practices in Bradenton, Sarasota, and beyond—the iPromise campaign. During the first months of the campaign, we encouraged teens and their parents to take the iPromise pledge not to text and drive, providing incentive to do so by holding a scholarship contest where contestants had the opportunity to win $1,000 towards their education. So far, our campaign has been a great success, with hundreds of teens and their families taking the pledge and making the commitment not to text and drive.
