Sarasota County Personal Injury and Accident Attorney

Florida Attorneys

Serving You and The State of Florida

Sarasota County is located approximately 60 miles south of Tampa Bay along Florida’s western coast. The area, which includes the cities of Sarasota, Venice, and North Port, as well as the town of Longboat Key, is known for its pristine white beaches and eclectic neighborhoods.

Despite its advantages and appeal, accidents and injuries occur in Sarasota County like anywhere else, some of them severe enough to cause death. According to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, there were 10,833 motor vehicle accidents in the county in 2020, 886 of which involved DUIs. A total of 61 people were killed.

At the Lopez Law Group, we take a comprehensive approach to helping accident victims. We understand that your immediate concerns include paying your medical bills, securing quality care for your injuries, and meeting your living expenses – not to mention taking care of yourself and your family. That is what we are here to help you with.

Our Personal Injury Practice Areas

Our experienced and compassionate Sarasota personal injury lawyers at the Lopez Law Group are here to help when you need it. Taking care of your family and your future is our number one priority. Our team will act quickly to help you demand compensation and justice in legal matters involving:

  • Car Accidents: If you have been involved in a car accident in Sarasota County, we can handle your case on your behalf. Our law firm will determine the cost of your damages, including medical bills, lost income, and property damage. We will then pursue compensation through an insurance claim or lawsuit. 
  • Bicycle Injury: Bicyclists in Sarasota County have the same rights and protections as other road users. If you are injured in an accident, you have legal recourse. When you partner with us, we will do everything in our power to ensure a positive outcome.
  • Birth Injuries: The actions or poor decisions of medical professionals during childbirth can harm your baby. When your newborn suffers serious injury or dies, you have the right to know what happened. If the outcome could have been predicted and prevented, you may be able to claim medical malpractice.
  • Boating Accidents: The beautiful waters of Florida have made boating a popular recreational activity. However, activities like speeding and operating a boat under the influence can cause an outing to end in tragedy. If this happens to you, a Sarasota County personal injury and accident attorney can help.
  • Nursing Home Abuse: In nursing homes, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals have a duty to provide a standard of care to residents. If they do not, you can hold them accountable. If you suspect that your loved one has suffered nursing home abuse, contact the Lopez Law Group.
  • Slip and Fall Injuries: An injury caused by a slip and fall may have an impact on a person’s ability to work, participate in family events and activities, and go about normal daily tasks. If a negligent property owner or manager leaves you with serious injuries, we can help.
  • Trucking Accidents: Heavy truck accidents often result in serious injuries. They also raise some of the most complex legal issues. You should therefore work with a lawyer with experience handling complex personal injury cases. Our understanding of the laws that govern the trucking industry can make a huge difference in the outcome of your claim.

The Lopez Law Group also handles claims arising from product liability, insurance bad faith, workers’ compensation. Call us to learn more about the different cases we handle in Sarasota County.

What Our Clients Say

A Godsend

Mr. Lopez was a Godsend and really helped me with my situation. Him and the entire firm were very diligent and helped speed the early stages of the process along due to a pressing situation. Throughout my experience working with the firm, they were always responsive and available any time I had a question or wanted to check on the state of affairs. Hopefully I won’t have to recommend Lopez Law Group to my friends or family, but if those unfortunate circumstances arise then there’s only one name I would trust. Thank you again for all your help!

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING...

Amazing Amazing Amazing!”

I called multiple attorneys to resolve my issue and none had much experience as much as this form. Anthony was amazing and made sure that as his client I was satisfied and understanding with his work. Very helpful and very patient and I was able to communicate with ease. I will definitely recommend this firm if you have a landlord/tenant issue or just an amazing attorney who listens to his clients needs.

"Awesome!"

Thank you Geoff Pfeiffer, for your assistance when my HOA pushed back on my installation of the Solar Panels on my home. Your succinct and eloquent statements of my rights to them turned a “solar panels are not allowed on the front side of the roof, to a 100% approval with no changes needed. Thank you for helping me quickly resolved what was gearing up to be a fight with the HOA.

“I Will Never Use Another Lawyer”

We couldn’t be more satisfied with Sean’s work and are so grateful we chose him to represent us. He works so diligently and tenaciously to get results, and somehow manages to combine being a consummate professional yet friendly and approachable. I was honestly terrified of receiving the final bill considering the hours upon hours he invested in our case (texts, calls, emails, meetings, etc.) after hearing nightmare lawyer stories from other people, but when I did I was shocked at how little he charged us. I never thought I’d say I wanted to pay somebody more than they charged, yet this time I did. I will never use another lawyer; we will use Sean for any and all representation we will ever need, and I urge others to do the same. Thank you, Sean!
