David Fuchs and his staff were consummate professionals when I needed a law office to represent my injury case. They communicated the process in detail and kept me apprised of the progress as necessary. It was a relief to be able to rely on them during a stressful time. It was nice to have the personalized attention of a smaller law firm as my champion.
When you’re involved in an accident and have injuries you need an attorney who is experienced AND who will give you the personal attention you need. You want someone who the insurance companies know won’t just accept any offer to make a commission. That's what separates Mr. Fuchs from the rest, especially the large law firms. He knows the law and he will fight for you like you are a member of his family. I highly recommend him to anyone who has been in an accident and needs aggressive representation for their injuries and other financial losses that happen as a result!

About Us

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 Fort Lauderdale 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.

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.

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.
