Our Experienced Professionals
Are Here to Support You No Matter the Extent of Your Injury.
We retain the professional services of premier medical doctors for their analysis and expert testimony. We maintain a medical library for our team and have former nurses on our staff.
We use economists and vocational rehabilitation experts to determine the non-physical impacts to your ability to work,generate income, or find new employment.
We know that personal injury and wrongful death cases often have a psychological component. That’s why we work hard to identify the impact of your injury beyond the physical employment.
Our Personal Injury Practice Areas
Personal injury law is our firm’s only focus. Since our inception, we’ve helped accident victims put their financial futures back on track after suffering a catastrophic event. Today, we help clients with our comprehensive range of personal injury law practice areas, including:
Auto accidents: If you’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence, you have a right to seek full compensation for damages. Our auto accident attorneys have extensive experience negotiating with insurance companies and have handled thousands of cases in North Florida.
Truck accidents: Accident cases between passenger cars and large commercial trucks can be complex. Negligent parties may include the driver, the owner, the manufacturer or others. Our attorneys are fully versed in commercial trucking regulations and highly skilled at negotiation.
Motorcycle accidents: Motorcycle riders suffer a disproportionate number of accident injuries. Common causes are unsafe roadways, defective parts, or the negligence of distracted or reckless drivers. Whatever the cause may be, Harrell & Harrell is here to advocate for you.
Wrongful death: Losing a love one is devastating, especially if your loss is due to someone else’s behavior or negligence. A wrongful death may leave you struggling to pay outstanding bills and compensate for a loss of income. If you believe you have a wrongful death case, contact us soon to ensure that crucial evidence is not lost.
Nursing home abuse and neglect: At Harrell & Harrell, we know how heartbreaking nursing home abuse and neglect cases are and take a special interest in protecting the rights of the elderly. Our experienced attorneys ensure that you don’t have to face these matters alone.
Workers’ compensation claims: Injuries sustained at job sites can change your life and inhibit your ability to earn a living. If you are injured on the job, rely on our workers’ compensation attorneys, fully versed in Florida’s complex compensation laws and regulatory procedures.
Social Security Disability claims: Most first-time applications for Social Security Disability are denied, often due to an improperly prepared claim. If you’ve been denied your rightful disability benefits, we can assist you with the Social Security appeals process.
Premises liability: Property owners have a legal responsibility to protect those on their property from accidental injuries and criminal activity. If reasonable steps like providing sufficient lighting and security equipment were not taken, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Product liability: A manufacturer is not required to produce accident-proof products, but the law does protect users who have been injured by an unreasonably dangerous product. We understand the complexities of product liability and can help if you’ve been injured by a defective product.
Traumatic brain injury: The leading causes of traumatic brain injury (TBI) include slip and fall accidents, auto accidents, and being struck by or with an object. We understand the effects of TBI and can fight to obtain compensation for medical cost, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Spinal cord injury: We’ve represented clients whose spine injuries resulted in costs in excess of a million dollars, including the costs of surgeries, home healthcare services, physical therapy, medications, medical equipment, home modifications and more. You can trust in our expertise.
Medical malpractice: Even the most experienced healthcare providers can make errors, but failure to provide adequate treatment or adhere to care standards can have devastating outcomes. If you wish to file a lawsuit, consult our attorneys promptly before the statute of limitations and other restrictions apply.
Boating and watercraft accidents: Florida’s waterways are one of our state’s greatest natural assets, but jet skis, boats and other watercraft can be dangerous. If you have been injured by a boating accident due to reckless behavior or negligence, our experienced attorneys can help.
