Personal Injury

Our commitment is to you…

We are your choice for personal injury:

At Radeline Law Firm, we understand that a serious injury can have a dramatic effect on your life, and upon the lives of those close to you. Whether it’s a car or motorcycle accident, wrongful death, a slip and fall at a business, or even a dog attack, we are here to help.   Our personal injury consultation is free, and if we accept your case, there is no charge to you for attorney’s fees or costs unless we win.

Most attorney advertising that you see is for personal injury. You cannot drive anywhere or watch a television program without seeing advertisements for many different firms handling personal injury cases.

What makes Radeline Law Firm different? One of the most important distinctions is that Mr. Radeline will personally handle your case. He will be your attorney. Unlike many of the firms that advertise heavily, your case will not be handled by someone different than who appears in the billboard. Mr. Radeline has nearly 15 years’ experience handling personal injury cases. He stared his career working for insurance companies defending personal injury cases, and then decided he would prefer to represent the injured victims. The experience of seeing how things work on “both sides of the fence” gives us a unique perspective that allows us to better serve you.

A little known secret is that some firms that advertise extensively for personal injury don’t actually file many lawsuits, and take few (if any) cases to trial. Mr. Radeline has filed a number of lawsuits on behalf of his clients in injury cases. If the case can be settled quickly without filing suit, that’s great—so long as the settlement is fair to the client. But many cases require an aggressive lawsuit in order to make the insurance company do what’s right. We are not afraid to take on a legal fight when it’s necessary for the protection of our injured clients. Take a look at our list of Good Questions to Ask Any Potential Accident Attorney.

Mr. Radeline has also authored a book for other attorneys—and taught a seminar that was approved by the Florida Bar– in order to train attorneys in how to better handle personal injury cases. The knowledge contained in Compulsory Medical Examinations in Florida has been used by many attorneys to better represent the interests of the injured.

Mr. Radeline holds the highest possible rating– AV Preeminent® – from Martindale-Hubbell for the highest level of both ethical standards and legal ability. Martindale-Hubbell has objectively rated attorneys since 1896, and the rating is a reflection of Mr. Radeline’s legal knowledge, analytical capabilities, judgment, communication skills, legal experience, integrity, and overall professional excellence as reported by judges and other attorneys.

Mr. Radeline will personally handle your case and will be personally available for your questions and concerns every step of the way. To better serve you, and to provide you with the level of service available in the largest of law firms, we have an entire team dedicated to helping you achieve your legal goals.

Backed by the support of legal assistants, notaries, law clerks, researchers, private investigators, receptionists, and a team of available expert witnesses for consultation or for trial, we deliver on our commitment to providing all available resources to your case while allowing you the convenience and efficiency of one primary contact person: Attorney Radeline.

Car and Motorcycle Accidents:

Car and motorcycle accidents can destroy a life. Whether it’s one of the most tragic types of cases involving death or drunk driving, or whether it’s a more common case involving a rear-end collision, we can assist you in any type of accident case.

Florida law allows you to recover a number of different types of damages as a result of a car or motorcycle accident. They include:

Medical Treatment— an accident can involve severe and expensive medical treatment. The law allows you to recover both medical bills already incurred as well as future medical expenses that have not yet been incurred. For example, you may be in an accident and have an injury to your neck. While it may not be severe enough today to warrant surgery, your physician may be able to testify that it’s probable you will require surgery in ten years. We want to make sure we get you compensated today for the expense of the surgery that will occur a decade from now. You have the right to that, and we want to make sure you are fully compensated for your injuries.

Lost Time from Work— the law allows you to be paid back by the at-fault driver for lost time from work. This includes time away from work for medical treatment or recuperation, and it also includes the loss of a job or the inability to be promoted due to your injuries from the accident.

Pain and Suffering— many people have heard of “pain and suffering” when it comes to an injury case. But did you know the law also allows you to recover for mental anguish and the loss of capacity to enjoy life? Mr. Radeline know this, and he will work to ensure that you recover for ALL of your damages allowed by law, including pain and suffering, mental anguish, and the loss of capacity to enjoy life.

Damage to Your Vehicle— an accident will invariably involve damage to your car, truck, or motorcycle. Most insurance companies work quickly to repair your vehicle. If we accept your injury case, and if your vehicle still is not repaired, we will work to ensure that you are properly compensated for the damage.

 

 

Wrongful Death:

Cases involving wrongful death are among the most tragic that we see. Wrongful death cases can arise from a car or motorcycle accident, from a person crossing the street, or even in other types of cases.

What makes a wrongful death case unique among injury cases is that it also involves the probate court and requires a skilled attorney to maximize the damages available from the potential future earnings that would have been available to the victim had they not been negligently killed.

During your family’s time of need, we are here for you and can provide you with excellent legal representation to ensure the survivors are monetarily compensated. Nothing will bring your loved one back. But we will do everything we can do to ensure the at-fault party pays what is required by law as compensation.

Slip and Fall:

Public places, including stores, hotels, and other businesses, have a duty to ensure that they maintain their property in a way that it is safe. We have successfully represented injured victims against businesses that have failed to keep their premises safe, and we can do the same for you.

Dog Attacks:

Most of us love animals, and especially dogs. However, sometimes a bad dog gets crossed with a negligent dog owner and the results can be catastrophic. Scarring (both physical and emotional) from dog-related attacks usually lasts a lifetime. Mr. Radeline has experience with dog attack cases, and we will provide you with the representation you deserve.
