Riverview Personal Injury Law Firm
If you are searching for a personal injury lawyer, you or someone you love has likely experienced devastating injuries. In some instances, these life-changing injuries involve a personal injury to a limb like a fractured leg or broken arm, or, in more serious scenarios – a limb amputation (hand amputation, arm amputation, leg amputation, foot amputation, finger amputation, toe amputation). In other times, permanent disability has occurred with traumatic injuries to the brain and/or spinal cord. Often a spinal cord injury involves damage to our “discs” and if you are reading this you have likely heard the terms “bulging disks” or “bulging discs” and “herniated disks” or “herniated discs” in reference to serious personal injury of the back. In any event, the bottom line is that the types of personal injury accidents and the types of injuries resulting from personal injury accidents are extensive.
While the types of personal injury accidents and personal injuries vary, personal injury lawyers typically see a common thread with their clients. First, personal injury victim are trying to figure out how to pay doctor’s bills and other medical care after an accident. Second, victims of serious personal injury accidents typically take a long time to recover, if they fully recover at all. These long term bodily injuries leave personal injury victims with less ability to function physically and mentally. Third, with expensive medical bills combined with an inability to do the things the victim used to be able to easily do, the personal injury victim is left feeling stressed out to the max, and, in some cases suffering from anxiety and/or depression. Fourth, the personal injury victim may miss a lot of time at work or not be able to return to work at all. These personal injury victims cannot make money if they are not working and are losing out on paychecks they would otherwise be receiving – another term for this is “lost wages.” Fifth, these personal injury victims that cannot work are not going to be able to provide for their family.
Questions abound for personal injury victims. Questions like: When can I go back to work? How will I pay for my medical bills? What about missed wages or lost wages? What about pain and suffering? Is my case worth taking to court?

The personal injury lawyers at The Frank Santini Law Firm and personal injury law firms The Frank Santini law firm works with on its cases, include:
Car Accident Lawyer
Car accidents often happen because a driver is negligent. If you are in a car accident and it was not your fault, then you have a car accident case if you have a serious personal injury. Often insurance companies of negligent drivers will settle before going to court, but occasionally a car accident lawsuit must be filed with the court. Auto lawsuits can be complex and present a host of challenges to the personal injury lawyer. You’ll want a car accident lawyer you can trust to help get the most compensation for your case.
Medical Malpractice Attorney
Medical malpractice cases happen when doctors or other medical providers do something that is “below the standard of care.” In other words, doctors and hospitals are not expected to be perfect but they are expected not to be negligent. Each year thousands of patients at hospitals, nursing homes and other medical facilities sustain a personal injury or wrongful death because of negligent medical treatment. Florida and other states have laws to protect people who have been injured or even lost their lives because of medical negligence. Medical malpractice lawyers at The Frank Santini Law Firm and the medical experts that work with The Frank Santini Law Firm on its cases can help you determine if you have a medical malpractice case, and help you and your family get justice and recover financial compensation for medical malpractice.
Slip and Fall Lawyer / Trip and Fall Lawyer
If you slip and fall, or trip and fall somewhere besides your home, you have to ask yourself “could my trip, slip and fall have been prevented?” Was the place where I fell unsafe?
We get it: accidents happen. But, often there is a story behind a slip and fall or trip and fall. Sometimes, floors are mopped or something is spilled and no wet floor sign is put out. Other times, owners fail to follow building codes and don’t properly maintain the property. Sometimes hand rails get old, stairs become dangerous, sidewalks become uneven. While you are expected to be careful when you’re walking, you are not expected to avoid every conceivable danger. If the person or store or other organization that owns the property you’re walking on “should have known” through due care (in other words be being careful and properly maintaining the property) about the danger that caused you to slip and fall or trip and fall, then that person or store or other organization is liable and can be sued for your slip and fall or trip and fall.
Construction Accident Lawyer
Construction workers are typically very hard workers. The managing partner of The Frank Santini Law Firm’s grandfather was an iron worker whom Mr. Santini was very close with growing up. Attorney Santini has a tremendous respect for people who work in construction and understands the risks of personal injury they encounter every day. Despite efforts to achieve safer conditions, there is still inherent danger in the construction industry risking serious personal injury or death for the construction workers. If a construction worker is the primary earner in a household and he or she suffers a personal injury, the family suffers, too, because typically the personal injury victim cannot work because of the personal injury accident on the construction site. If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction accident, the construction injury lawyers at The Frank Santini Law Firm will help you get your family back on track.
