Personal Injury & Wrongful Death
Small enough to care.
Our Trial Attorneys
When deciding who to retain as an attorney in the areas of wrongful death and personal injury, trial experience matters. Although any lawyer could take a case to trial, many lawyers choose to pursue a quick settlement instead. The insurance companies know this and they will try to settle a case for far less than it is worth. The combined experience of the lawyers at Sharit, Bunn & Chilton, P.A. is a strength. There are times when a settlement may be in the client’s best interest. However, at Sharit, Bunn & Chilton, P.A., our trial lawyers, Scott Bunn and Krista Mahalak, have proven to the insurance industry that we mean business, and will not hesitate to take a case to trial when it is in the best interest of our clients. Attorney Scott Bunn is Board Certified in Civil Trial Law. Board certification recognizes attorneys’ special knowledge, skills and proficiency. Our lead wrongful death and personal injury attorney, a specialist in this area, has fought on behalf of injured and wronged Floridians for decades. Along with Krista and the other lawyers on our team, he is ready to evaluate your claims, counsel you, and aggressively pursue justice on your behalf.
Coping with the loss of a loved one can be one of the most trying times of your life. When a death is caused by another party’s carelessness, recklessness, or intentional act, the grieving process can intensify. It’s completely natural to feel that the party who may be at fault for taking the life of your loved one should be held responsible for their actions. In these instances, you may have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit to help achieve the closure for which you yearn. Depending on your relationship to the deceased, you or other family members may have a claim for damages to help make up for the resulting loss of income.
If you have experienced the loss of a loved one and believe that the death was caused, in full or in part, by a defective product, or by the wrongful act of another person or business, you need the help of experienced wrongful death attorneys to guide you through the process.
A serious injury can impact every aspect of an accident victim’s life, including their health, their family, their income, and their financial well-being. Under Florida law, if that injury was caused by someone’s carelessness, accident victims may have the right to pursue monetary compensation for the hardships they are facing. This includes compensation for damages, lost wages and medical expenses. Our attorneys represent accident victims who have suffered traumatic brain injury, broken bones, back injury, paralysis, neck injury and more.
