    Car Accident Lawyer

    According to the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, more than 600 car accidents take place in Florida every day. And while car accidents have become a regular occurrence for most Floridians, it is sometimes difficult to fully appreciate their devastating consequences unless experienced first-hand.

    Car accidents can cause severe and permanent injuries which may result in significant impairment and economic loss. However, under Florida law, accident victims may be entitled to recover for their damages from the at-fault party. These damages may include medical expenses, lost wages and vehicle repairs along with compensation for pain and suffering. That’s where a Sarasota injury lawyer can come to help.

    Immediately following a car accident, insurance companies from both sides begin working to minimize your claim. Due to their vast resources and misleading negotiating tactics, accident victims may instantly find themselves at a distinct disadvantage. That is why it is important to consult an experienced attorney who understands your rights before signing any documents or giving any statements to an insurance company.

    Back or Neck Injury Lawyers

    Back and neck injuries are some of the most commonly diagnosed injuries following a collision or impact. The severity of these injuries range from sprains and strains to disc bulges and herniations. Without proper diagnosis and medical treatment, back and neck injuries may become chronic, permanent and debilitating.

    Because back and neck injuries are so commonplace, insurance companies are very versed in combating claims for such injuries. That is why it is important to contact a personal injury attorney who understands the nuances of back and neck injuries and will ensure you receive the medical attention necessary to not only treat these injuries, but also illustrate their significance.

    At Matthew Erjavec, P.A., we understand the delicate nature of back and neck injuries and possess the necessary resources to ensure you receive the medical attention and legal representation you deserve. If you or a loved one has suffered a back or neck injury, call our office and talk to an experienced Lakewood Ranch back or neck personal injury lawyer today.

    Brain Injury Lawyers

    Brain injuries can occur when the head is subjected to a direct external impact (when the head is struck, or when the head strikes an object) or when the head is subjected to a sudden acceleration and then is suddenly stopped. Both causes are extremely common in motor vehicle collisions, especially rear-end collisions involving whiplash.

    While it is not difficult to detect and diagnose brain injuries in those who sustain concussion, hemorrhage, significant loss of consciousness, coma, and skull fractures, many times these symptoms are not present and brain injuries go undetected. An experienced personal injury attorney in Sarasota and Bradenton would understand the symptoms of a brain injury may or may not persist, and for varying lengths of time, after a brain injury has been suffered. Those who suffer brain injuries can exhibit persistent emotional, cognitive, behavioral and physical symptoms, alone or in combination, which may produce a functional disability. These symptoms generally fall into one of the following categories, and are additional evidence that a brain injury has occurred:

    • Physical symptoms that cannot be accounted for by other injuries or causes: nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headache, blurred vision, sleep disturbance, quickness to fatigue, lethargy.

    • Cognitive deficits involving: attention span, concentration, perception, memory, speech/language.

    • Behavioral changes involving: irritability, quickness to anger and disinhibition.

    Due to their sometimes “invisible” nature, brain injuries are often overlooked, even by lawyers. If you or a loved one has suffered a whiplash injury or impact to the head due to the actions or negligence of someone else, it is important that you consult a Lakewood Ranch brain injury lawyer experienced in detecting and handling brain injuries.

    At Matthew Erjavec, P.A., we have the experience and resources necessary to effectively detect and handle matters involving brain injuries. Call our office and talk to an experienced Lakewood Ranch, Venice or Bradenton, FL brain injury lawyer today.

    "I hired Matt almost three years ago when I was hit on my motorcycle by a careless driver. I spent the next two years going through ten surgeries and going from wheel chair to crutch to cane. I was at a place in my life I couldn't care for myself and I needed a lot of medical attention. Matt handled all my needs and was a real person when I needed someone to talk to. He went above and beyond the job. He came to the hospital , to my home and set up dr visits for me when I couldn't do it myself. My life was taken away from me and for a long time I wondered if I'd ever get it back. I watched myself transform from a successful young man into a destroyed handicap person. Matt assured me it would be alright and fought for me when the insurance tried to give me as little as possible . I had so many surgeries I watched my life I once knew turn into a new life of complete misery. I couldn't imagine what it would of been like in my condition had I hired another attorney. I felt like Matt was trustworthy and honest with me through the legal battle and in the end my expectations were met. Mind you a legal proceeding is not an overnight journey, it takes time and who you hire is a BIG DEAL! It took years of hell and patience but Matt never pressured me to sell myself short or settle for his benefit. Through the entire legal procedure he looked out for my best interest. I was a very needy client and my injuries are very serious. Had I not hired Matt I doubt I'd of gotten the personal attention from an attorney or the settlement I received. I am very grateful to Matt Erjavec !
    Matt if you're reading this thank you for watching over me through the legal proceedings and getting me an unbelievable settlement. I will never forget your service! You're a one of a kind attorney and people would be crazy not to hire you."
