Personal Injury Cases
Our personal injury lawyers take on many forms of injuries. Some of the more frequent injury cases we take on are:
Car Accidents: Florida roadways are littered with cars. Most people have a vehicle, and most homes have more than one car. Many car accidents result in drivers and bystanders becoming hurt and injured. Regardless of the details surrounding your accident – if you were injured in an auto accident we are able to help. If you were hit by a car while on a bicycle, or just a passenger in an auto accident – we can help. Our ultimate goal is to make your recovery process as minimally impactful to your daily routine. We’ll help you get the best medical attention while handling all of the other aspects of your case.
Pedestrian Accidents: Often pedestrians become injured while walking along the street or crossing an intersection. Many times pedestrian victims suffer severe injuries due to fast-moving cars due to an inattentive driver. It is unfortunate that many injured pedestrians feel as though an accident involving a car is their fault and do not seek out representation from a personal injury law firm. Our recommendation is that speak to us, and we can dissect the accident with a full investigation and discover the actual details of how your accident occurred.
Medical Malpractice: Healthcare providers are held to high standards when overseeing the medical treatment of patients. However, those in the healthcare industry are people, and unfortunately, people make mistakes. These faulty actions by the doctors, or nurse, or other medical staffing can lead to disastrous outcomes. Our law firm can help you correct the injustice. We’ll help by investigating the conduct of the medical staff and determine when, where and how a discrepancy from the standard of care occurred. These mistakes could follow you every day for the rest of your life, let Shiner Law Group build a case and recover the compensation you need and deserve.
Slip and Fall / Trip and Fall: A slip and fall occurs when a floor becomes slippery or wet with no warnings or barriers to preventing falls. A trip and fall occurs when there is negligence in repairing any damaged flooring, or obstructions are left within walkways making foot traffic unsafe and disastrous. If you fall due to either of these scenarios and become injured, you may have a potential case. Property owners have a responsibility to preserve a safe environment for individuals utilizing their property. If an inadequate, unsafe flooring condition has resulted in you being injured – we can help. We will put a personal injury claim together showing irresponsibility on the property owner due to a failure to maintain safe conditions. We will fight to get you as much recovery as possible.
Premise Accidents: Whether residential, commercial, or public property, there is a responsibility for the property owner to maintain a safe environment for all who visit. If at any time an injury occurs whether a slip/trip and fall, animal bite, injuries due to inadequate security, or hazardous property conditions, we encourage you to contact us to discuss your injuries. We may be able to go after the responsible parties and get you the compensation you deserve.
Defective Products: There is an obligation by manufacturers to provide a safety check on all products that are being sold and used by a consumer. There are times when manufacturers fail to adhere to the guidelines of proper safety expectations. Consumers often become the victims of these unsafe products which often cause serious injury and sometimes death. If you need help filing a claim for a defective product contact us so we can help with your potential case.
Nursing Home Abuse: We entrust nursing homes and assisted living facilities with our loved ones when more focused, or long-term care is needed. There is an expectation of trust and reliance on these facilities to give adequate and proper care, nutrition, and monitoring. Under certain circumstances your loved one may be mishandled, under supervised, or mistreated, causing extreme injuries and even death. Don’t let negligent, inexperienced, or abusive staff get away with causing harm to your loved ones. Call our offices today to seek a recovery for any damages or losses you or your loved ones may have encountered at the hands of a nursing home or assisted living facility.
Wrongful Death: The most unfortunate outcome due to another’s negligence, misconduct, or intentional act is a wrongful death. When you lose someone prematurely, the emotional and financial catastrophe can be devastating. It can be challenging for family members to focus on filing a wrongful death claim to seek compensation for present and future losses.

Speak with one of our attorneys today to discuss the tragic details of your loss; we will fight for everything you are deserving.
What Do I Do After I Have Been Injured
It is important that after you have unintentionally been injured in an accident, you contact the authorities and get all documentation pertaining to the accident. Without these your claims validity and injuries become questionable. The better we can prove negligence and fault the greater your case details become.
Immediately after an accident that you have been injured in, write down everything you can remember, including damages and injuries to yourself. Things such as time, date, weather, location, or anything else specific to the incident are important. If you have a mobile device with a camera take as many pictures of the surroundings where the incident occurred as well as any injuries you have received. Pictures are very valuable as evidence in the instance your case goes to court. If you also happen to see people around during the event get their information, as they may be able to validate the sequence of events as they occurred pertaining to your losses and injuries. Once you have all of this information and you have sought out medical attention call our personal injury lawyers immediately so we can get your claim filed.
How Is Fault Determined
Accidents happen. Most are not intentional, but they still occur. Just because it may be deemed an “accident” does not mean that another party is not responsible. Shiner Law Group will work hard to show the other party acted in a manner that was not “reasonable” causing harm to you. We will demonstrate that due to the irresponsibility of another causing your injuries, you have suffered emotional, physical, and financial damages. Our ultimate goal is to take the evidence provided and prove you were a victim through no fault of your own and are deserving of a financial recovery.
Do I Need A Personal Injury Lawyer
Insurance companies make money by denying personal injury claims. Their goal is to obstruct, prevent, and eventually deny your injury claims. They conclusively want to pay out the minimum amount of money possible.
Without a personal injury attorney, the insurance company understands you have no leverage, leaving you at a disadvantage. Without an understanding of your legal rights, you may find it difficult to get the insurance company to negotiate fairly. When insurance companies know you lack the understanding for filing a personal injury claim, the chances of getting maximum compensation for your injuries decreases significantly. This can limit the true value for a potential claim – meaning you settle for far less than you would have with a lawyer. Some oversights are things such as future and past medical bill coverage, lost wages, as well as other potential damages and losses pertaining to your injuries. Our attorneys will help you understand your rights under the law, and disclose what you’re entitled to as a result of your injuries. At Shiner Law Group we always go above and beyond our client’s expectations.
When you hire an attorney, the likelihood the insurance company will take you, your injuries, and your claim, more seriously increases. They know we understand what is acceptable under the law and willing to go to court when necessary.
What If My Injuries Are Minor
Many injuries can seem to start off minor, then slowly escalate into more major injuries down the road. Because of this many avoid medical treatment, or visiting a medical professional altogether. Unfortunately, later, injuries progress, as well as the pain. When you first are involved in an accident your adrenaline may be racing; it may continue for some time. When this rush subsides, the pain starts appearing. It is crucial to seek out medical attention immediately to make sure you are okay. After you have sought out medical attention it is beneficial to speak with an injury lawyer who understands what you are entitled to.
