Lakeland Personal Injury Lawyers

Being injured in an accident will leave you with many difficult questions. Dismuke Law is here to address these uncertainties, offering guidance when you need it most. For your convenience, we have compiled several frequently asked questions below, and we invite you to call our offices at (863) 292-6922 any time to talk to a Lakeland personal injury attorney about your specific case.

What should I do if I’ve been injured?

If you have been injured and you believe someone else is to blame, do not wait to seek medical attention. This will start the paper trail of your treatment and provide proof that you sustained injuries, and it will also be best for your health and well-being. We also recommend contacting an attorney as soon as possible, to discuss your potential right to compensation from the at-fault party.

Who can be held liable for causing my injuries?

Individuals or business entities may be held legally responsible (liable) for causing injury through negligence or wrongdoing. To determine liability in your case, we will need to conduct a complete investigation into the matter to see what occurred and who is to blame. The first step is a free initial consultation with one of our Lakeland personal injury lawyers.

What are the most common causes of car accidents?

Car accidents are most commonly caused by negligent driving behavior. Drunk driving, driving while distracted, speeding, reckless driving, and aggressive driving are all common causes of traffic accidents in Florida and across the U.S.

How do I know if a property owner provided a proper duty of care in maintaining safe grounds?

Property owners in Florida have a responsibility to visitors and guests to provide reasonably safe grounds, but this responsibility will vary depending on the type of property (such as a bank versus someone’s home) and the type of visitor (such as a customer versus a guest or even a trespasser). We can evaluate your case to see what level of care applies, and pursue a premises liability action if warranted.

What types of cases does your firm handle?

Dismuke Law primarily takes on cases involving car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian and bicycle accidents, bus accidents, wrongful death, legal malpractice, and more.

Will I have to pay upfront costs for your legal services?

Our Lakeland injury lawyers work on contingency, which means you do not have to pay for our legal services unless we are successful in recovering a settlement or verdict on your behalf.
