Our Clearwater Personal Injury Lawyers Offer Personalized Service to All of Our Clients

Clearwater Personal Injury Lawyer Jim Dodson with ClientWhen you or someone you love has been seriously injured in a Florida accident, you need a well respected injury lawyer who will talk straight with you about the steps you need to take now. Jim Dodson Law has helped thousands of people whose lives have been turned up side down because of another person’s careless or negligent action. If you or a family member were hurt in a car crash, bike and vehicle collision, pedestrian accident, slip and fall, or a loved one suffered a wrongful death or was the victim of medical malpractice – you may be entitled to file a claim for financial compensation to cover the harms you suffered. Understanding how to begin can be overwhelming.  

Most people have never had to deal with the insurance company on a claim. You may feel anxious and fearful about saying the wrong thing when you answer a phone call from the insurance adjuster. Many people don't know all of the tactics they will use to get out of paying what a case is worth. Many don't realize a representative of the insurance company will try to take advantage of them - especially someone who is attempting to settle a serious injury case alone. This is when you need to reach out to a lawyer who has a lot of experience handling your type of injury case. You want an attorney who has a well earned and trusted reputation to stand beside you every step of the way.

Building a Relationship of Trust with Your Personal Injury Attorney

“I love the opportunity to work with people to help them get back on their feet after they have been involved in a terrible and tragic accident. In the aftermath of any accident or injury, many are not sure what the future holds for them. It is tremendously gratifying to have a chance to build a relationship of trust with clients and work towards a meaningful resolution which allows them to get on with their lives. Helping people is what drives me and keeps me excited about coming into the office everyday.” - Jim Dodson

More than just a dedicated attorney, Jim has been a strong advocate for the improvement of safety in the community. He is grateful to help make a difference in people's lives, especially with children. Jim Dodson Law has worked with local police departments, charities and non-profits, schools and local businesses to promote solutions and resources that benefit and bring awareness to the public.

Clearwater Personal Injury Law Firm That Offers Personal Service

Since 1985, Floridians have relied on superior client centered service at Jim Dodson Law when looking for a personal injury law firm in Clearwater. We are proud of the number of referrals we receive from other Florida attorneys as well as from former and current clients who continue to express their trust in our law firm by referring family and friends in need.

Unlike large accident and injury law firms that specialize in huge volume practices, we limit the number of cases we take on to provide our clients with the time and personal attention each deserve. This is the hallmark of the Jim Dodson Law Difference.

Choosing the right attorney is without a doubt a huge decision. Hiring a lawyer because you saw them on a billboard, TV advertisement or because of their office location tells you nothing about who will actually handle your case. It is always best to ask for information about the lawyer you are considering to represent you. We believe this is so important that we have created a list of questions to help you make a smart choice. Every week, we receive calls from people who didn’t know anything about the lawyer they hired. Later, they had regrets about their decision - but it was too late. Don’t let this be your story too. The attorney you decide to trust with your personal injury case is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.

The Help You Need for Your Florida Personal Injury Case

Our main offices are in Clearwater; however we understand if you’ve suffered serious injury in an accident you may not be able to come to our primary office. For your convenience, we are available to meet you, by appointment, at one of our many satellite offices throughout the state, or a location at or near your home.

We invite you to join our family of satisfied clients.
