About Our Firm
Welcome to Jim Dodson Law
We understand the burdens and the challenges you face following a serious injury. We are committed to helping you recover from your injuries, rebuild your life, and obtain the maximum compensation for your losses. Our personal injury law firm only represents people who have been injured or hurt in an accident, as well as, those who have lost a loved one due to a wrongful death. Having years of experience working with clients who have suffered as the result of the negligence of others, Mr. Dodson has written five valuable consumer guides to help you take the right steps immediately following an injury: Five Mistakes That Can Wreck Your Florida Accident Case, Dangerous Trips to Avoid in Your Fall Case, Survivor’s Guide to Florida Wrongful Death Claims, When Kids Suffer Big Injuries: A Parent’s Guide to Child Injury in Florida and Florida Pedestrian Accident Guide. He has also authored, Buying Car Insurance: The Ultimate Guide to Your Protection From Irresponsible Drivers in Florida to educate consumers of their need for uninsured motorist coverage in the state of Florida.
We are not a large impersonal advertising firm. We pride ourselves on the relationships we have built with our clients. As a result, our practice has been built on the confidence our clients have placed in us through their referrals, as well as, on the referrals we receive from other lawyers and professionals.
Rather than create a high volume law practice based on mass advertising, we limit the cases we accept to provide you with the personal attention you deserve. You will not be passed off to case managers or file processors, a common practice in large advertising firms. We understand sustaining a traumatic injury is life changing and can be emotionally devastating. We are committed to listening to your concerns and to insuring the person responsible for your injury fully compensates you for your losses. We are dedicated to protecting your interests while handling your case in a professional manner with compassion and aggressive advocacy.
Choosing an experienced Florida Personal Injury lawyer is the most important decision you will make. For more than 25 years Mr. Dodson, the founder of Jim Dodson Law, and his staff have been successfully representing clients like you.
