Personal Injury
Every personal injury claim is as different as the people who are injured.  One thing all personal injuries have in common is the potential to cause devastating, permanent damage to every aspect of one’s life.  Our experienced Personal Injury Practice Group has witnessed these horrors first hand both personally and professionally.  Our goals are to thoroughly investigate your accident to secure and preserve all the evidence, help you obtain the medical treatment you need to start on your path to recovery, and achieve the best possible outcome for in your case.

George∙Gesten∙McDonald’s Personal Injury Practice Group is led by Matthew R. Chiapperini, who has represented accident victims throughout the State of Florida.  Matthew has successfully recovered millions of dollars for his clients through zealous advocacy for their rights.

Who is responsible?
Personal injuries are most often the result of someone’s negligence, meaning that someone failed to use reasonable care, resulting in damage or injury to you.  Determining who was at fault for your accident can be complex.  In most cases, fault is apportioned to each person involved in the accident based on their conduct that may have caused, or contributed to causing, the accident. In some situations, a defendant may be responsible for your injuries regardless of whether that defendant was negligent.  Having an experienced attorney on your side may be the determining factor in how fault is determined in your case. 

What are my damages?
Damages are difficult to quantify.  Many different variables are considered when evaluating your case, including fault.  Every case and every victim are different.  Every damages assessment is equally different. At George∙Gesten∙McDonald our Personal Injury Practice Group strives to provide up-front, honest case evaluations and to communicate with our clients throughout the claims process so that you are fully informed from the beginning of your case.  

How much does this cost?
Our Personal Injury Practice Group represents victims of accidents on a contingency fee basis, meaning we do not get paid unless your case is successful.  Our attorneys’ fees are based on a percentage of the recovery we secure on your behalf.  Our personal injury clients will never be asked to pay a retainer fee or other up-front expenses.  Simply put, there are no fees or costs if we are unable to secure compensation for your injuries.

How do I get started?
