Our attorneys understand the tactics that insurance companies use to dodge liability. We have the knowledge and courtroom experience to effectively counter their arguments. Our lawyers have a record of accomplishment that shows not just our passion for the law but our commitment to obtaining the compensation that our clients need to move forward after a devastating injury.
At Frankl & Kominsky, P.A. we can help you build a convincing case to demonstrate a defendant's negligence. Our attorneys will thoroughly investigate the situation surrounding your accident and collect evidence to support your claim, while anticipating potential counterattacks from defendants and their lawyers.
In many personal injury cases, a defendant is likely to blame the person suing them for the accident. This will not stop us from pursuing a claim against someone whose careless conduct injured you. Some states prevent a victim from recovering damages if he or she is more negligent than the defendant. This is not the situation in Florida, which follows a pure comparative fault rule. Our state allows an accident victim to recover damages regardless of his or her degree of fault. You can be 60 percent at fault for your injuries and still recover compensation for the remaining 40 percent.

"For me the practice of law is very personal. I take it personally when big corporations or powerful insurance companies deny my clients the fairness they deserve. I work very hard to be a good listener. I want to know from my clients exactly what circumstances have led them to my law office. I need to know how their lives have changed as a result of an accident and injury." Ethan continued, "My job then is to fight for my clients' rights and to bring them the full recovery they deserve. I use every weapon at my disposal."
