Fort Lauderdale Lawyers Fighting for Your Right to Compensation
As knowledgeable trial lawyers and personal injury law specialists, the attorneys at Baker & Zimmerman handle a wide variety of cases with great success for our clients. If you have been the victim of someone else's negligence in any kind of vehicular accident—car, motorcycle, airplane, truck, semi, trailer, boat, or personal watercraft—we can get you the compensation you need and deserve.
When choosing a Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer, it’s important to consider what kind of track history your attorney has; in your initial interview, your prospective lawyer should be willing to discuss the extent of their career and provide you with information about notable cases he or she has worked on. For example, we have worked on several cases in a variety of areas of personal injury law, including a case between south Florida resident David Magnum and the insurance company representing another resident Frank P. Stallone. The insurance company acted in bad faith, claiming that the extensive surgeries for injuries that Mr. Magnum received were made necessary by another accident—and that the original accident was Mr. Magnum’s fault, even though Mr. Stallone was changing lanes and collided with Mr. Magnum’s car. The case was tried by our firm’s own Robert B. Baker, and the jury rendered a verdict of $603,792.86 for Mr. Magnum.
We also represented a confidential plaintiff against an unnamed Archdiocese in the matter of a sexual abuse incident fifteen years prior. At the conclusion of several critical depositions, the Archdiocese accepted responsibility and settled for $7 million to avoid trial.
