You May Be Eligible to Recover Compensation for Your Injuries and Damages
Accidents occur in many ways and involve various injuries.

Our lawyers help clients seek this compensation.
The recoverable damages in a Lauderhill personal injury incident will depend on your injuries, bills, related expenses, and more. Some examples we often recover for our clients include:
- Medical bills, including future or ongoing care costs
- Loss of income, whether temporarily or because of diminished earning capacity

If your loved one died because of their injuries, the state may allow you to seek damages under Florida Statutes § 768.21. Under the state’s wrongful death statutes, immediate family members such as spouses, children, and parents may be able to receive compensation for losses, related expenses, and non-economic damages. Our attorneys represent Broward County families in these cases.

Our attorneys understand how it feels to suffer injuries due to negligence. Attorney Chris Tadros is a motorcyclist, riding for more than 30 years. He has been in accidents, including one injury collision. He knows what it’s like to hit the ground.
When our attorneys represent a client, we work based on contingency. We do not charge upfront fees. Instead, our lawyers receive a portion of the payout we recover. We do not receive attorney’s fees unless our client gets paid.
Our Broward County Personal Injury Lawyers Know How to Prove Liability
The key to winning compensation in a personal injury case is to develop a strong claim to show negligence and liability. We need to show that our client suffered injuries because of someone else’s carelessness or recklessness.
At Phillips | Tadros, P.A., we know how negligence causes injuries in Lauderhill and other nearby areas. We gather evidence to prove these cases and document our clients’ injuries regularly. Four elements confirm negligence occurred:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
For example, imagine you suffered serious injuries in a car accident. We may be able to pursue compensation for you if we can show:
- The driver had an obligation to behave in a certain way, usually because of a traffic law.
- They failed to do so.
- Their actions caused your crash.
- You suffered serious injuries, financial losses, or other harm.
Taking Action in Your Lauderhill Personal Injury Case
Our Phillips | Tadros, P.A. attorneys know how to build a case and pursue compensation for our clients. We often settle these claims with the insurance company representing the at-fault party. We negotiate until we agree on a settlement amount, avoiding filing a lawsuit and bringing a resolution to the case for our client.
In other cases, we must sue the liable party and ask the court to consider our client’s lawsuit. Most of these cases do not go to trial. We settle on the trial date through negotiations, arbitration, or mediation.
Sometimes, lawsuits do go to trial. In that event, the judge and/or jury decide the outcome of the case. They hear both sides and issue a verdict detailing fault and any financial award.
How Soon You Need to Act to Hold the At-Fault Party Responsible
Enlisting the help of a personal injury attorney in Lauderhill as soon as your injuries are stable and you can focus on your legal case is your best option. Supporting your claim with strong evidence makes it easier to show the insurer or judge and jury that the accused party was negligent and caused the accident. In turn, this makes it easier for our lawyers to recover the compensation you need and deserve.
The sooner we go to work, the more evidence that may be available to support your claim. Some evidence disappears as time passes. We encourage you to call us as soon as you consider whether you need a lawyer.
There are also deadlines for beginning a lawsuit in personal injury cases. Under Florida Statutes § 95.11, most people have four years to file an injury suit or two to start their wrongful death lawsuit. There are exceptions to these deadlines, primarily those listed under Florida Statutes § 95.051.
