Business disputes are inevitable. There are simply too many business interactions and transactions occurring in the life of your business to expect that no dispute will ever arise.

Estate and Probate

If you’re injured because of the negligence of another, it makes sense that the responsible party should be held accountable to you for the harm they have caused. Justice demands it. Unfortunately, the insurance companies responsible to pay your damages don’t make it easy. They contradict the evidence of your injury and dispute the facts of the accident, and they try to reduce or eliminate their payout by claiming that your own negligence is to blame.
Our experienced personal injury lawyers know how to build and present a strong case for the full amount of your loss, including your medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, and other legal damages. We aren’t intimidated by insurance company defense tactics, and if we can’t get you a fair and just settlement, we aren’t afraid to take your case to trial, which is exactly where the insurance companies don’t want to be. Call Older, Lundy, Alvarez, Koch & Martino after a Pasco County auto accident, motorcycle accident, or slip and fall.
