Injured Due to Negligence in Margate? Our Lawyers Can Help

As First Lady of Margate Kaye Stevens used to say, the city is “a great place to live and raise a family.” Great weather. High-quality schools. Fun activities, like Calypso Cove or one of the area’s two other golf courses.

It is also close enough to bigger areas, such as Fort Lauderdale and Miami, that everything you could want is nearby, while still retaining the charm and slower pace of a mid-sized community.

Unfortunately, accidents happen even here. Kids get hurt at the waterpark and drown in backyard pools. Pharmacists make mistakes and give people the wrong medicines. Also, never forget that Florida is one of the most dangerous states for cyclists, motorcyclists, and drivers in general.

The lawyers at The Injury Law Firm of South Florida understand this. Every day, they work with people who have suffered serious injuries due to the negligent actions of others. These people struggle, not only to recover from an accident that was not their fault, but to figure out how to pay their medical bills and make up for lost work.

With more than 100 years of combined experience handling personal injury cases in Margate and other parts of South Florida, our lawyers know what it takes to help you get fair and just compensation and also hold the responsible parties accountable so others are less likely to suffer in the same way.
