30+ Years of Experience Fighting for Clients in South Florida

David Fuchs began practicing law in 1988, and he applies the knowledge gained to both the professional and personal experience. His negotiation skills are what make him stand out in the legal industry and they make him a force with the insurance companies. In fact, his technique is so effective that he trains his staff to use the same strategy.

His primary objective is getting you the compensation you deserve after an injury, but he also knows the short-term needs that come with catastrophic events. For instance, if you need transportation after an accident, he’ll help you get your vehicle repaired and set you up with a rental at no charge to you. In addition, you will always speak with a South Florida personal injury lawyer, not an assistant or paralegal.

How Much is a South Florida Personal Injury Case Worth?

The insurance companies know what they’re doing, so you need an attorney to lead you through the claims process too.

Even minor injuries can result in costly expenses. The financial burden should fall on the liable party’s shoulders, not yours. The cost of hospital visits can be astounding, and physical therapy, loss of income, and other costs stack up very quickly. Furthermore, insurance companies will always try to lowball you when offering a settlement for your injury. Don’t try to navigate the claims process alone – Attorney David I. Fuchs will help you stand up to the at-fault parties and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Lowball offers leave you with unfair compensation to cover your injuries, repairs, and pain and suffering. An experienced attorney can examine your case, reconstruct accidents with experts, and prove the at-fault party’s negligence.

There are numerous forms of compensation available, depending on your case, and going through this process alone will limit the amount you could receive. That being said, it’s always worth hiring an injury lawyer in South Florida, especially if your car insurance can’t cover your damages entirely, requiring you to sue the at-fault party for your losses.

“…the settlement I received was much higher than anticipated”

Fuchs was my car accident attorney and was very responsive from the first call. I had medical care the next day and the whole process was smooth. They handled everything with the insurance companies and coordinated all of the necessary medical information. It was a long process and in the end the settlement I received was much higher than anticipated I am more than happy and grateful for the outcome.

“…they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved.”

I got in an accident in December 2021 when everyone was short staffed and insurance companies was not responsive. My boyfriend reached out to David F. and what a life changing experience. We had the pleasure of having all our worries handed to professional help. They worked diligently on our case, answered questions when asked and kept us updated on changes. More importantly they didn’t settle for anything and my boyfriend and I got what we deserved. I have dealt with others in the past but David got me the most according to the facts presented and never backed down when the insurance companies tried to make us settle for less. Thank you David, Jessica and the team for all your effort and hard work. I will recommend them to family and friends. [They’re] the best in town!

“Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know.”

Mr. Fuchs is one of the hardest working attorneys that I know. He is really good at what he does and puts 110% in you case. I have been using him for 19 years now and refer all my friends to him. I can leave him alone with my case and not call him all the time. I know he is working hard in my case. When he has any information he calls me and we go from there. There are not a lot of attorneys I can do that with! If you have any Personal Injuries please do call him. You won’t be disappointed!!

We’ve Handled All Types of Injury Cases in South Florida

You may feel lost, and you may not know exactly how to classify your injury, but that’s what we’re here for. After our skilled injury attorneys in South Florida hear your side of the story and put in the investigative work, we’ll determine not only the type of accident but what caused it and whose fault it was.

From slip and fall injuries to commercial truck accidents, we’ve seen it all. We can put our experience to use for you right away.

Proving Negligence & Liability

Holding Negligent Parties Responsible For Your Injuries

Determining who caused your injury and who is financially liable for your losses is key in any South Florida car accident claim. You may not remember every detail of your injury, but we’ve done this long enough to help uncover what’s been forgotten. Car accident lawyer David Fuchs brings his experience and resources to dissect the moment of injury and find the at-fault party. We use the evidence we uncover to prove to the auto insurance companies, or jury, that someone else is to blame and there is money that you are owed.

Helping You Get Paid for Your Injuries

With 30 years of experience negotiating with insurance companies, Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer David I. Fuchs will use his knowledge to obtain the best injury settlement possible for you. His negotiation skills are top-notch. He understands how the insurance companies calculate their offers, and he will push them to get you even more.

Conveniently Located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida

Our law office is located right across the street from Florence C. Hardy Park and Southside Cultural Center in downtown Fort Lauderdale off of South Andrews Avenue. And although it’s convenient locals, we’re happy to meet you anywhere in Broward County or South Florida to make things easy for you.

How We Build Your South Florida Personal Injury Case

We will work with your doctors to determine what ongoing symptoms, disability, disfigurement, or other impacts from your injury.

This can be calculated in many ways, but includes the following:

  • Mental Anguish Caused
  • Continual Physical Pain
  • Inability to Work for a Time
  • Difficulty Enjoying Life

Recreating the Scene

We recreate the accident scene using accident reconstructionist experts. In addition, we’ll track down and speak with eyewitnesses and passengers of cars that may have been involved to help us determine exactly what caused the accident.

Examining Your Medical Records

We want to make sure you receive a fair amount for your car injury compensation. So, we’ll review your medical records and the bills that have been sent so far. We frequently work with Broward Health Medical Center and Broward Health North as trauma centers that treat people who have sustained injuries. In addition, we’ll look to see if your doctors have referred you to a specialist for future treatments.

Maximizing the Amount of Damages That We Will Pursue

Let us do the work – We’ll add up the damages to increase the value of your claim and help you make up for what was lost.

Your primary concern is healing your injuries, but you are likely also concerned about covering the medical bills that are piling up as well. If you are unable to work, you may wonder how you’ll pay your mortgage and other bills too.

We will determine the value of your case and send strong demand letters to get you compensated.

Negotiating with the Insurance Company for a Settlement

We will aggressively pursue the different types of damages that are available following your injury. The damages that we will negotiate for include:

Compensatory Damages – Damages that are directly related to the injuries, lost wages, and repair costs.
Punitive Damages – Damages assigned to punish the at-fault party on account of their negligence. These damages include pain & suffering and are meant to prevent further negligence.
Personal Injury Protection – In Florida, drivers are required to have personal injury protection/no-fault insurance. Regardless of who is at fault, personal injury protection can help pay for medical expenses and, in some cases, lost wages. However, this protection only accounts for up to $10,000. For even minor accidents, your bills can exceed that amount due to medical treatment, vehicle repairs, or emergency transportation.

Every day that goes by costs you more.

Let us help put a stop to that.
Contact us today for a free consultation.

Preparing for Your Free Consultation

Our consultations are a win-win for you – no pressure to hire if you have a case, and if you do, we get right to work. Our lawyers will begin a free initial consultation with a few questions:

You should bring any accident-related documents with you, such as police reports and medical bills. You can obtain an accident report from the local Police Department. If you don’t have these documents yet, our attorneys will get them for you.

Our goal is to collect as much information as possible during this initial meeting so we can determine how much your personal injury case is worth.
