"Dorothy Pitman Hughes is a heroine of the women's rights movement, of the civil rights movement, and the children's rights movement. She is an iconic, historic figure who we are privileged to have living in our community now. We were proud and honored that Dorothy came to our firm with a legal issue and we were pleased to resolve it satisfactorily to her. We are delighted to call her our friend."
"I would call Barry a guardian angel. He protected me and he protected my husband. It was always a goal for my husband, who was a wonderful man, to be protected and honored in death when he can no longer speak for himself. He needed a voice and Barry gave him a voice."
"I had a benign, yet fatal tumor in my brain. Other firms had turned us down, where we knew we had a case or felt we had a case. Gretchen couldn't have been any more sympathetic to my case and my situation. She'd stuck with us - she stuck with us and kept fighting for it."
Most personal injury firms are comprised of individual attorneys who simply share office space. At Spohrer Dodd, we work as a team. This approach translates to faster, better results for every client we represent. From our highly experienced paralegals to our in-house physician, to our attorneys who are pilots, who teach, and who publish within the legal profession, we have the skills and resources necessary to take on any opponent. A team is always stronger, more talented, and able to work harder and longer than any one person. Put our powerful team of Jacksonville personal injury attorneys on your side – call (904) 637-7721.

If you’ve been in an accident and you’re injured, you may be owed compensation. A personal injury attorney can help receive the compensation you deserve and need. Hiring a personal injury attorney can be a challenge if you’ve never used one before. There are countless attorneys out there who all claim to be the real deal, so it’s difficult to know who to pick and what to consider.
Luckily, we’ve provided answers to frequently asked questions about choosing a personal injury lawyer for your particular case.
If you’ve suffered an injury, you might want to consider contacting a personal injury lawyer who can give you legal advice and then be your representative if you opt to proceed with a personal injury case.
Here are the most common injuries which might need a personal injury attorney:
If you’ve suffered any of the above injuries, make sure to contact a personal injury attorney right away.
After hiring a personal injury attorney, it’s their duty to protect your interests when filing your case and chasing compensation. Top personal injury lawyers will do the following:
Personal injury lawyers also calculate the cost of doctors, physical therapists, consultants, legal experts and other experts who help to build your claim against the potential settlement.
This means that while you’re not expected to pay up while your case is going on, the lawyer’s office is noting all the expenses and will deduct from your share of the award or settlement.
Almost all personal injury attorneys charge a contingency fee, which means they’re only paid based on your settlement or award at trial.
If the case is settled out of court, this figure is usually 33%. If your case proceeds to trial, the figure could go up to 40%.
Additionally, attorneys are refunded for any fees and costs related to your claim that they paid for.
Their charges may seem exorbitant, but your attorney is taking a massive financial risk in handling your case. Basically, they have to pay for everything in advance without the guarantee that they’ll recover that money.
If they lose your case, they get nothing and yet they’ve spent a fortune building up your case.
This will be determined by the circumstances of an accident. It’s possible that you can get damages beyond the usual expenses related to your treatment and recovery.
Your personal injury lawyer will fight to make sure you get every penny you deserve in any of these categories.
Your lawyer will collect all the bills and similar medical documents that show the cost of your medical treatment and recovery. They’ll also consult medical professionals to get an estimate of how much it’ll cost to treat your injuries in the future.
You might lose days or weeks or months of wages if you’re out of work due to injury. Your attorney can help work out how much you’re losing based on your employment history and the promotions and benefits you’ve missed.
This is not a simple calculation, but it’s just as critical. If your injury results in permanent disability or lasting emotional trauma, your attorney can find credible witnesses who’ll prove the reduced quality of life you’re living. Your lawyer can get compensation for the pain and suffering you’re going through.
If your case is extremely horrendous, you can be entitled to punitive damages. These are awarded to punish the liable party.
