Featured Case Result: Iris Friedman
Woman Slips and Fall Outside Apartment Complex
Slip and fall accidents can occur to anyone at anytime, and for Iris, it happened at the worst of times: on New Years Eve, as she was heading out the door to ring in the last evening of the year.
Unfortunately, her plans were derailed when she slipped and fell just outside her apartment. Her pain and medical bills were piling up when she decided to call our firm. Luckily, she called in time, and we were able to secure a fabulous result for her by holding her own apartment complex negligible for the dangerous conditions that caused her fall.

Excellent experience. From my initial meeting, through the updates and delays, they kept me in the loop. They responded quickly to any of my status requests. They overdelivered on the amount promised.

You have questions, and we have answers
Frequently Asked Personal Injury Questions
Our potential & new clients often have very important questions they want answered before they decide which personal injury attorney to hire. We pride ourselves on being straightforward and interactive with all of our potential clients. Here are some samplings of the more common questions we have, but each practice area has it’s set of unique questions and answers.
We’ve even made our personal injury FAQs a little more interesting to watch, with a series web videos from Craig Goldenfarb himself.
Let’s begin exploring!
1. How much will it cost for me to hire you?
There are NO up-front attorney’s fees or costs to hire our law firm. We also provide a FREE intake consultation to evaluate whether or not you have a case we can be your lawyers for. Our personal injury firm operates on what is called a “contingency fee” structure. Once we have decided to take your case, we begin work without you having to pay us anything. Instead, we take a percentage of the money we recover for you, at the end of the case. If we do not recover any money for your injury, we do not charge you anything for our attorney fees or costs. It’s that simple.
3. What is the “Statute of Limitations” on personal injury cases?
Different types of cases have different time periods within which we are required to file a lawsuit, in order to protect your legal right to recovery under Florida law. Different cases can have different statutory recovery time periods based on various circumstances and facts regarding the injury, and how or where the injury occurred. Some types of cases even require formal action within six months of the incident! Therefore, it’s best to call our office as soon as possible. Call our Intake Department to get more information on the Statute of Limitations that may apply to your potential case.
5. Why do I need a lawyer?
Some people try to negotiate their case with the insurance adjuster directly, thinking they will save money. Unfortunately, adjusters are trained to convince people without attorneys that they should not hire a lawyer. The adjuster then “low-balls” the injured victim, and convinces them to settle for far less than their case is worth. A lawyer is able to document and build the case, and pressure the insurance company into treating the client fairly and to offer fair compensation. Some insurance industry studies have shown that people who hire lawyers end up getting much more money that those who try to handle it themselves.
2. How long will my case take to resolve?
Considering that every case has a different level of complexity, the time a case takes to be concluded often varies. Therefore, no exact answer can be given. Additionally, every personal injury case has aspects that are directly dependent on 3rd parties such as insurance companies and law enforcement, which can add to the time it takes for your case to be over. Often times, the greater the extent of the injuries, the more complex the case will be, and will therefore require more time to thoroughly litigate. You can generally expect us to settle your injury case in under 12 months if your case is settled without having to file a lawsuit. If your case doesn’t settle pre-suit, and we must go into litigation, the entire process can last between 12 months and three years or more.
4. How much is my case worth?
This is a tough question to answer, especially early in a case. Case value varies based on the clarity of the negligence against the Defendant, the severity of the injuries that have occurred, and the amount of available insurance coverage. Our goal is to handle your case with integrity, detail, and vigor, which will maximize the recovery you receive. Contact our Intake Department to ask further questions about how we determine the value of your case.
6. How will I get medical treatment and how will it be paid for?
Our office works with many doctors in various specialties that specialize in treating the victims of accidents. Therefore, we can help you choose the doctors that can help you. As far as paying for the treatment, in Florida, your car insurance pays the first $10,000 for medical treatment. Then, your health insurance, or Medicare, or Medicaid, might apply. Our law firm is skilled in making sure all available sources of payment are considered and used, in order to maximize the recovery to the client at the end of the case.
