Alan Sackrin Knows How To Help

Helping Local and Out of State Clients Since 1982.

Everyone knows that when you, a family member, or a loved one is injured in Fort Lauderdale or elsewhere in Broward County because of someone else’s actions or failure to act (negligence), Florida personal injury law provides for the recovery of money damages and compensation awards (for things like lost wages, pain and suffering and medical expenses). What some may not know, is that Federal law may also be able to assist in seeking justice for personal injuries on the job, at school, or in a crash (plane, train, bus, car).

Why Alan Sackrin?

What sets Alan apart from other Fort Lauderdale injury lawyers are his extensive trial skills and experience. Additionally, he provides unfettered access to himself and his veteran support staff to help answer your questions and begin the process of finding out what went wrong and he strives to add value to his clients.  He adds value to his clients because he will go to trial when the insurance company denies coverage or doesn’t make a settlement offer that he believes is fair.  Alan won’t send his client to a different lawyer to file a lawsuit, he’s the lawyer that other lawyers send their cases to when they are unable to obtain a reasonable settlement offer.

Accidents and Serious Injuries Are the Basis for Florida Personal Injury Claims

Car Accidents and serious injuries happen all the time here in Fort Lauderdale and the rest of Florida; if you or someone you know has suffered serious injury or even wrongful death, then you should seek the help of an experienced and qualified personal injury lawyer. There are deadlines for filing claims and for pursuing lawsuits – if you miss these “statutes of limitations” then your claims, no matter how valid, will be time barred. Don’t wait on a personal injury claim, clocks are ticking.

Go here to read the 4 year Florida statute of limitations on personal injury negligence claims.

Serious Personal Injuries – What Kind Of Injuries Are Covered By Florida Law?

What kind of serious injuries are protected by Florida personal injury law? Any harm that has been caused by the acts of someone else (a person, a company, a school, a store, etc.) can be covered by Florida personal injury and wrongful death statutes. The most common personal injury claims include those that are filed after someone has suffered:

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Brain injuries happen to all sorts of people: babies, kids at school, teenagers playing sports, men and women in car accidents or on the job work incidents, among other things. The Center for Disease Control estimates that almost 2 million people suffer serious, traumatic brain injuries in this country every year.

Brain injuries can be hard to spot sometimes. Sometimes, recurring headaches, short-term memory loss, and sudden mood swings are all the hints that loved ones have that someone has a brain injury. Still, minor brain injuries as well as the more obvious traumatic brain injury can result in severe and permanent injuries like paraplegia, quadriplegia, as well as severe mental illness such as schizophrenia.

Spinal Cord Injury

Whenever someone is hurt with an injury to their head, neck, or back, then the spinal cord can be injured. Spinal cord injuries mean nervous system damage that can mean temporary or permanent loss of the use of arms, legs, hands, etc. – or full paralysis.

Bone Fractures

Broken bones, whether a single bone is broken or whether the victim suffers multiple fractures can be serious and life-altering especially for children who may need long term medical rehabilitation. Sporting accidents, on the job work accidents, car crashes, and slip and falls can result in bone fractures and broken bones can be serious injuries for which those responsible for the broken bones and fractures can be held accountable under Florida law.

Injured in Fort Lauderdale?

Injuries happen in all sorts of places. In schoolyards, parking lots, mall food courts, grocery stores, on the job, in a boat, on a jet ski, at a friend’s condominium – you, your husband, wife, child, parent, brother or sister can fall victim to an injury caused by the negligence of someone else almost anywhere you go in Fort Lauderdale or South Florida. For instance, if you have been seriously injured at a:

  • Grocery store: Publix or Winn-Dixie
  • Department store: Sears, Macys, Bloomingdales, JCPenny
  • Restaurant: McDonalds, Cheesecake Factory, Denny’s, Checkers
  • Retail Store: Target, Wal-Mart, Kmart, Walgreens, Best Buy
  • Condominium
  • Hospital
  • Workplace
  • Hotel
  • Nightclub
  • Gym or Spa

You may be entitled to monetary compensation and money damages for your injuries under Florida personal injury law.

Alan Sackrin is a Florida Injury Lawyer Experienced In Dealing with Insurance Company Defense Fights

In Florida personal injury, when someone is hurt the insurance company is usually involved very, very soon after the injury happens. Long before a claim is made or even considered, family members and injury victims may be dealing not only with doctors and medicines and physical therapy but also with insurance company representatives who are trying to resolve the potential claim as soon as possible.

For those injury victims and their families, it’s important to have legal representation as soon as possible. Maybe the insurance folk are acting in good faith; maybe they’re not – but their interests are definitely aligned with the insurance company, the policyholder, and the insurance company’s shareholders. Not the victim who has been injured, no matter how compassionate and friendly and nice they may be.

If the injury claim proceeds to a formal stage or to a full lawsuit filed at the courthouse, injury victims and their families should be aware that the defendant’s attorney is usually being paid by the insurance company, not out of the defendant’s own pocket. It’s therefore very important to have a plaintiff’s attorney who understands that the defense lawyer may have a significant part of his work provided by that insurance company. The reality is that the insurance company will have an impact upon the resolution of the case – in negotiation, settlement, or trial. The insurance company is a player on this field.

Florida plaintiffs’ attorney Alan Sackrin has over 30 years of experience dealing with personal injury matters, and he is acquainted with the lawyers who represent defendants (via their insurance companies) as well as the insurance carriers themselves. Alan has built a reputation of pursuing his cases all the way through trial.

This is important for defense attorneys to know: Alan has handled cases with most insurance companies and he strives to obtain the compensation his clients deserve. He tries cases. Alan Sackrin will vigorously pursue an injured client’s rights against the insurance defense tactics and unlike some attorneys who may tend to settle claims rather than enter a courtroom fight (there are several reasons they may not want to take a case to the courtroom), Alan will take the matter to trial (and appeal) if necessary.

Fort Lauderdale’s Alan Sackrin is known as one of the Florida Personal Injury lawyers who won’t just settle cases to avoid trial. In fact, many of Alan’s clients are referrals from other Florida attorneys who could not get the case settled and so turned the case over to Alan.
