Every day, Floridians suffer car collisions, motorcycle crashes, trucking accidents, boating accidents, semi-truck/eighteen-wheeler accidents, drunk driving accidents, drug-related crashes and other accidents.

At Kurzban Kurzban Weinger Tetzeli and Pratt P.A., one of Florida's leading personal injury law firms, we help people who have suffered all kinds of motor vehicle accidents get the compensation they deserve. Contact us for a free initial consultation about your car accident injury claims.
What We Can Do
In Florida, injuries sustained in a car accident or truck accident must be above a certain threshold for a lawsuit to be filed. There must be permanent, significant injury or scarring involved. Our firm concentrates on the people who need the most help, up to and including helping people who have lost a loved one in a fatal accident file wrongful death claims and seeking justice for those suffering catastrophic injuries. Unfortunately, our lawyers cannot devote our energies to whiplash cases and relatively minor injuries.
Only the Most Qualified Expert Witnesses
Our attorneys must be selective because we invest a large amount of money and energy in every case. All personal injury law firms hire expert witnesses, but our firm hires only the most qualified experts in the country. For example, when we need an engineering expert, we don't seek out just anyone; we go straight to the head of MIT's Metallurgy or Body Mechanics departments. Some personal injury lawyers retain their own in-house experts, but we believe that such "experts" can hardly give the impartial and unbiased views we need to effectively present the facts of a case.
This extra effort and expense brings results. In one case, our attorneys gained a $2.8 million judgment from an insurance company for uninsured/underinsured coverage in a single car accident. This is the largest known verdict for a single car accident. A 48-year-old chiropractor was forced to stop abruptly to avoid a collision and as a result herniated his back. The insurance company refused to negotiate with our client in any reasonable manner and we were able to obtain justice for our client.
In another case, we set a new legal precedent. Our client was forced to slam on his brakes to avoid a reckless driver and suffered injuries as a result. Our success in getting our client compensation for his injuries established that there need not be physical contact between cars in order for an injured person to recover.
