Mr. Dannheiser has been an incredible advocate when we needed someone we can trust. Time and time again over the years he has been there for us. I don't believe that there is a more trusted attorney in all of Sarasota. Although he has his specialties, he has such a broad range of experience and knowledge and has successfully guided us many times. Make the call! Don't hesitate!

Saying that Dan was a professional, caring, tenacious and truly a joy to work with, would not be doing him justice. He handled my case with attention and care that can only be described as incredible. With what was one of the most scary and upsetting times of my life, Dan did everything in his power to ensure I was educated, comfortable and HEARD during my case. Couldn’t not give him any higher praises!

Dan helped us through a scary time after our accident, advising us on asset protection and other liability issues. Best of all, he was a calm reassuring voice until the matter was solved. The result: everything came out better than I ever imagined.

Dan Dannheisser was very helpful when I was referred to him by another lawyer. He took the time to explain a difficult case to me. Not many will take the time to talk to you in detail. Dan did and I really appreciated it, since I recently became a widow. Thank you Dan :-)

Dan Dannheisser represented my father in a personal injury case. Mr. Dannheisser was excellent. He is meticulous, professional, caring, and honest. He really took the time to get to know not only the facts of the case, but us on a personal level. Mr. Dannheisser and his staff worked very hard on the case, which resulted in a positive outcome for my father. I would highly recommend anyone to Dan.

Dan and his staff took care of me and guided me through a very tough time: medical issues, multiple insurance claims, tons of documentation. He was patient, caring, kind, and above all honest. He did not make huge promises, did not over exaggerate, and helped me walk away with a reasonable settlement. He works hard, returns calls, does not delay, and is very very good at his job. If I still needed to call him, I would and could. I’d go back to him, and have recommended him multiple times. I’m very grateful he was recommended to me.

What Are Personal Injury Claims?

Accidental injuries have the potential to cause life-altering damages in a person’s life. These injuries can happen in a number of ways, but often occur in the following incidents:

A legal duty, created by law or contract, holds everyone to a particular standard. When the injured person can prove a negligent party had a legal responsibility to protect them and failed to do can succeed in an injury claim. Drivers, doctors, and property owners all have legal duties to protect others.

Recoverable Damages

When someone files a civil case, they are entitled to seek compensation for medical bills, long-term care, and lost income. Courts can also award personal injury victims damages for their pain, suffering, or emotional trauma. Compensation depends on several factors, including the severity of the personal injury and how it happened, so it is helpful to consult an experienced Sarasota lawyer before filing a claim.

Who is Liable for a Personal Injury?

When negligent persons cause accidents causing injuries and damages these negligent parties are legally responsible for the harms they cause. Proving another person was negligent requires demonstrating that they had a legal duty to protect someone else and they breached the legal duty, causing the injured person to suffer damages.  An experienced personal injury attorney is vital for your successfully proving the at fault party’s  negligence and the full extent and value of your damages

The defendant’s intent is irrelevant to a negligence claim; an injured person is entitled to recover full compensation when the at-fault party negligently fails to comply with their legal duty regardless of intent. For example, drivers on the road owe each other a duty to driving safely and when this duty is breached causing a wreck resulting in your injuries and damages you are entitled to recover the full value of each and every damage cost to you.

When both parties are responsible for an accident, the law allows recovery for injuries based on the percentage of fault and as long as that percentage of fault is not exceed 50% the plaintiff can recover compensation even though partially at-fault.

There are strict time limitations to keep in mind when filing civil lawsuits. For personal injury cases, the injured party must file their claim within two years to be valid. Otherwise, they run the risk of losing their right to recovery. A trusted lawyer in Sarasota could help navigate the legal and procedural hurdles to recovering compensation after an injury.
