Board Certified Trial Attorney Alan Sackrin Knows How To Help
Helping Local and Out of State Clients Since 1982.
All kinds of motor vehicle accidents occur every day in Fort Lauderdale. Injuries from car, motorcycle and truck accidents occur on busy streets like Broward and Sunrise Boulevard.
As we all know, an injury caused by someone’s negligence normally results in the injured party receiving compensation including lost wages, pain and suffering, future and current medical expenses and medical bill reimbursement.
Personal injury law is an area of Florida law that covers a wide range of injuries that hurt and sometimes kill innocent victims and tragically harm loved ones and family members, financially and otherwise, for many years. Many kinds of injury claims are covered by specific statutes that have been passed by the Florida Legislature, including:
Laws that define the kinds of damages that are eligible for money compensation,
Who is eligible to ask for money damages (for example, spouses can), and
Laws that give deadlines on how long you have to file a claim for injury damages from an accident.
If you or a loved one has been injured, it is important to be represented by an accident attorney who has years of experience helping victims of negligence. Florida injury lawyer Alan Sackrin has been helping injury victims and their families in Broward County and the State of Florida for many years.

When Injuries from Accidents Kill: The Florida Wrongful Death Statute
When injuries from an accident are so severe that the victim dies, the Florida Legislature has passed special laws to help the surviving family members seek justice. Under The Wrongful Death Act (full text online here), grieving loved ones can file a “wrongful death suit” against those believed to be responsible for the untimely death.
The Florida Legislature has determined who can file these lawsuits. The Estate’s executor(rix) or administrator(rix) can do so, along with certain family members such as the widow or parent.
Damages are also defined by the Florida Legislature in the Wrongful Death Act. It depends upon how the claimant is related to the victim of wrongful death as to which damages they can legally be entitled to pursue against those responsible for the accident.
