Jacksonville Beach Attorney Dedicated to Helping the Injured Recover the Compensation They Deserve

If you were seriously injured in a Northeast Florida accident, you may be wondering how you are going to pay the medical bills that are already piling up. What about the time you have had to take off work? Will you get that money back? After all, the accident was not your fault and you should not have to suffer financially as well as physically. The good news is, you may have a valid lawsuit against the person or people who caused your injury. When you schedule a free consultation in my Jacksonville Beach office, I will listen to your story and explain your options. Don’t suffer in silence. Call me today to start taking action.

Accepting All Personal Injury Cases

I do not like to think of the world as a dangerous place but, unfortunately, when people are careless or negligent, they create a dangerous environment for others. You should be able to drive your car, enter a store, see a doctor, or walk down your street without worrying about someone else’s actions causing you harm. When someone violates that expectation of safety, you may be able to take legal action against them to recover the financial and emotional losses you have suffered. I am proud to take all types of personal injury claims, including the following:

  • Car accidents
  • Commercial truck crashes
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Motorcycle crashes
  • Dog bites
  • Boat accidents
  • Negligent security
  • Medical malpractice

No matter what an insurance adjuster may have told you about liability and what you may or may not be owed, call my office to discuss your claim. If I don’t win, you don’t pay, so you have nothing to lose.

Why You Should Hire an Experienced Litigator

With a background in criminal defense, I have the valuable courtroom experience you need in a personal injury lawyer. While many personal injury cases are settled out of court, when your attorney is ready and willing to take a claim to trial, you have more negotiating power. From my office in Jacksonville Beach, I am available to all residents of Northeast Florida as well as visitors to our area. Call me today to schedule your consultation.

The Clifton Difference

When you are injured in an accident in the Jacksonville area, you have a lot of personal injury attorneys to choose from. You may even have an attorney’s phone number jingle memorized! But if you are looking for a personal approach from a small law firm, look no further than the Clifton Law Office. As the sole attorney, I will give you and your case the time and attention it deserves. You won’t be passed to a paralegal or ignored when you have questions. I make it my mission to do the following:

  • Learn my client’s story. I will never see your claim as a cookie-cutter case. I take the time to listen to your story—what happened in the accident as well as what you have suffered since.
  • Stay in constant contact. Personal injury cases can take some time to resolve, but I will never leave you hanging. I will update you on what is happening on a regular basis so you never feel abandoned.
  • Always answer questions. For most of my clients, their injury claim is the first time they have dealt with an attorney. I understand that you may have a lot of questions about the process and I will answer all of them with patience.

You do not have to suffer alone. Tell me about your case and I will tell you how I can help. The sooner you call, the sooner you will be on the road to recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do after I am injured in a car accident in Florida?

Not everyone is lucky enough to be able to make decisions after a Florida car accident. For some victims, decisions are made for them as they are rushed off in ambulances or rescue helicopters. If you are conscious after a crash, you should have these steps in mind to protect your welfare and your potential for a financial recovery.

What is my personal injury claim worth?

This is often the first question injured clients ask their attorneys. As bills start to mount, they wonder if they will be compensated for all of their losses. Unfortunately, there is no easy answer to this question. That is because every injury case is unique and the amount of your settlement will depend on factors related to your specific case. While we can’t really even give a ballpark figure here, we will discuss the factors that can raise or lower the amount of a settlement. When you meet with us to discuss your case, we will be able to give you a better idea of its value.

How can I fight a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) charge?

No driver ever wants to see those blue lights flashing in their rearview mirror, but if you know you had a drink or two before driving, you may be particularly frightened—and for good reason. Driving under the influence carries serious penalties in Florida and—whether you feel drunk or not—if you were drinking, you could be over the legal limit to drive. But just because you were caught doesn’t mean you can’t defend yourself against the charge.

What is a plea bargain and should I agree to one?

A criminal case—from arrest through sentencing—can take months to work its way through the system. Due to an overburdened justice system, the legal process is a slow one and prosecutors and judges are highly motivated to resolve cases and clear dockets as quickly as possible. One way they do this is through plea bargaining. A plea bargain—also known as pleading out or taking a deal—is an agreement between the prosecutor’s office and the accused in which each side gives something up in order to conclude the case.
