Personal Injury involves any bodily or psychological harm inflicted on an individual by a responsible party. These cases determine two things: the liability of the accused and the damages sustained to the plaintiff. The most common cause of liability on the defendant is negligence. This happens when the liable party has not performed duties that would ensure the safety of others. Snedaker Law will work with you in a PI case to determine the damages done to you and fight for your due compensation.
A PI attorney assesses the strength of your case, submits the tort, collects evidence and paperwork necessary, and fights for the appropriate amount of compensation. In the early stages, a PI lawyer advised their client on foreseeable legal matters, including insurance claims and documentation of expenses. They also determine an achievable outcome for the case to aim for. During the process they will submit evidence and legal paperwork. They will communicate with their client to work together to gather correct evidence and documentation to build a strong case. Their ultimate job is to fight for the due compensation for their client.
Taking the time to explain and guide you through the entire process is what sets our law firm apart from most others. Our teams of attorneys and staff have the knowledge and experience to passionately litigate on your behalf. We will work as a team to get you the compensation that you deserve so that you can make a full recovery.

Wrongful death occurs when someone can ultimately be held responsible for the death of an individual. Unlike traditional personal injury cases, a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed by an immediate family member on behalf of the deceased. Most often spouses or children file the suit, though in certain circumstances others such as grandparents, parents, siblings, or financial dependents can file suit. The statute of limitations for a wrongful death claim in Florida is two years from the date of death. If your loved one has died as a result of someone else’s negligence or recklessness in the past two years, you may be able to file a wrongful death claim.
