Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Lawyers

Personal Injury is a legal term of art. It includes any injury to the body or mind, including all emotional consequences.

Each of us have a social responsibility to the people around us to not cause or inflict any harm or injury. When that social duty is breached, a claim for the harms and damages is available to the injured party. The injured party is entitled to recover damages for their medical care, lost wages and pain and suffering. When an injury results in death, then the surviving family members are entitled to recover damages for the wrongful death of their loved one.

Each year, Wittmer | Linehan represent hundreds of clients and their families who were injured in an accident. We treat each case as though it will proceed to trial. This allows our attorneys and staff to properly evaluate and investigate your case from the beginning and maximize your ultimate recovery. In addition, we maintain a network of expert consultants in areas such as accident reconstruction, medical evaluation, medical care planning and damage calculation, etc. In 2017, our experience and resources obtained the largest reported personal injury verdict in the history of Sarasota or Manatee counties. Results Matter.
