Jacksonville Personal Injury Lawyers

What makes a Personal Injury firm in Jacksonville a good choice for you is one that has attorneys with the skill and experience to win verdicts, obtain large out-of-court settlements, and have the drive, determination, and courage to win your case.  You also need a firm who will listen to your needs, desires, and wishes.  In many large firms in Jacksonville, the attorneys simply do not have the time to get to know their clients.  As a result, most of the client interaction is with the lawyer’s case manager.

The lawyers at Rosenberg & Calvin, P.A., have a combined experience in Jacksonville Personal Injury cases of over 55 years.  We have the knowledge and experience to take on a variety of cases.  We devote our time, effort, and money int our client’s case to ensure the best outcome possible and the compensation our client deserves.

Elements of a Personal Injury Claim

Personal injury cases are based on common law and statutory principles of negligence.  This can be negligence on the part of an individual or on the part of an entity such as a company or governmental entity.  In the simplest terms, a personal injury case involves a duty, a breach of that duty, and damages caused by the breach of care.

What Duty Applies

The concept of what Duty applies to a case can be tricky.  For example, the duty drivers on the highway owe to other drivers is the duty to use reasonable care in the operation of your vehicle.  However, for people operating a bus, truck, or taxi carrying people, goods, or offering services, they are considered Common Carriers.  As Common Carriers, they owe the highest duty of care for the safety of their passengers or others around them on the roadway.  On the other hand, there is virtually no duty owed to a trespasser on land other than to refrain from willful or wanton behavior resulting in injury.  One of our Personal Injury Lawyers in Jacksonville can help you navigate what exact Duty was owed to you in your case.


Another hotly contested component of Personal Injury claims is causation.  If a client has a broken bone, sustained a burn, or suffered from a laceration, those injuries are easily connected with the trauma the client suffered.  However, if we are dealing with pain in the back, neck, shoulder, knee, and any other part of the body, there will almost always be an argument that the recent crash did not cause the client’s pain. 

While some insurance companies expect juries to agree with them and find that the accident had nothing to do with the claimed injuries, other insurance companies are hoping that challenging the causation of the client’s injuries will hold down an eventual verdict.  Most insurance defense firms request a wide variety of medical records, health insurance records, and employment records to see if the client has ever complained of similar injuries or symptoms in the past.  When you sit down with one of our Jacksonville Personal Injury Lawyers, it is vitally important for our clients to be truthful about any pre-existing injuries up front in the case.  If we learn about prior similar problems late in the case, that evidence has downward pressure on the value of the claim.
