Start Moving Forward With Your Case Today

Your life quickly changes when you have a personal injury. Many of these changes are forever and they often impact an entire family rather than just the injured person. At Russo Law, we can help you with your personal injury case with getting to the right doctors who can help with medical diagnosis and treatment, how your medical treatment is going to be covered, and ultimately the amount of money that you can recover on your personal injury case.

It is often said that the decisions that you make today will have an impact on your life tomorrow. This is very true. You will need to make a lot of important decisions throughout your injury case. These decisions might include how you will rearrange your daily schedule, the effect of the accident on your ability to work, and whether you should settle or go to trial.

Who you choose to represent you is also a very impactful decision. Our civil justice system is adversarial in nature and the value that you ultimately get out of your case is often a direct result of decisions between you and your attorney. Taking it upon yourself to make insurance claims for your injury from the responsible property is not an easy task. We are here to help..

You will need to be aware of the laws and processes effecting your case. Hiring an experienced Florida personal injury attorney in Lakeland is one of the best ways to go about maximizing your claim. It will save you a lot of time, hassle, and trouble. Further, studies show that people who are represented by attorneys typically get more more.

When you hire us, we deal with the insurance company or responsible parties so you don’t have to. We take the weight of those responsibilities off of your shoulders so you can focus on getting back to normal. We can also provide you with options for medical treatment and help you to avoid costly mistakes. All of this translates into getting more value out of your case at the end of the day.

We offer a free consultation that is completely private and confidential to get your case started. Most consultations are done by a combination of phone and email but we are also available to meet with you face to face.
