Experienced Port Charlotte Personal Injury Attorneys
The Spivey Law Firm, Personal Injury Attorneys, P.A., focuses its practice solely on personal injury and wrongful death cases. This narrow focus allows our Port Charlotte personal injury attorneys to concentrate their full efforts on recovering financial compensation for the victims of accidents caused by the negligence of others. These types of accidents may result from boating accidents, automobile accidents, DUI accidents, and slip and fall accidents. Whatever type of accident has caused injuries to you or a loved one, we have the experience and knowledge that you will need in seeking compensation from the parties responsible for your injuries and other losses.
Although money cannot replace health or the loss of a loved one, financial compensation can go a long way toward holding a negligent party responsible for his or her actions in causing an accident that leads to an injury or death, and to helping you on the road to recovery from your losses. A financial settlement with an insurance company or jury verdict can be used to defray medical expenses, lost wages, rehabilitation expenses, and pain and suffering. In the case of a wrongful death suit, compensation also may be applied to funeral and burial expenses, and loss of companionship by surviving family members.
