Personal Injury Attorney
At Kinney, Fernandez & Boire, we understand how to deal with all of the
complicated decisions that will arise in any Personal Injury case.
Personal injury cases can involve automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents,
slip and fall accidents, dog bite incidents, wrongful death, injuries from
defective products, nursing home injuries and work related injuries.
When dealing with a personal injury case, a person should understand that there
are a number of issues that call for the assistance of an experienced personal
injury lawyer. From questions surrounding who should pay the bills, to what
benefits are available, to what is the Statute of Limitations controlling a
legal action, a personal injury case can be complicated and confusing.
At Kinney, Fernandez & Boire, we are experienced in dealing with issues such as
Florida's No Fault insurance law, the Wrongful Death Statute, the laws of
comparative negligence, permissive use, and collateral source set-offs (payments
made toward damages that reduce a persons out-of-pocket expenses). There are
issues relating to a legal principal called the “accident report privilege,” the
admissibility of past criminal convictions, confidential medical records, and
past psychological treatment records.
When dealing with physical and mental injuries following a traumatic event it is
important to understand the need for proper documentation of injuries, including
answering questions such as whether an injury is considered a permanent injury
and whether there is a permanent impairment under the American Medical
Association's guidelines. Also, will future medical care be needed, how much
will that cost, and will an injury result in restrictions on a person's
activities in the future. There are many other issues that arise in these cases
and it takes an experienced team of professionals to deal with them. Our firm is
committed to maximizing a client's benefits, making the best use of the rules,
procedures and laws governing the prosecution of personal injury claims, and
positioning a client's case in the best way possible to ensure a successful
Lost wages and lost earning capacity are often associated with personal injury
cases. In order to recover these damages it is important to properly document
and obtain proof of the losses. Insurance companies will not normally accept
claims of lost wages and/or lost earning capacity unless they are shown clear
proof that these damages are legitimate, accurate and are clearly related to an
injury claim. At Kinney, Fernandez & Boire, we know how to present claims for
lost wages and lost earning capacity. In automobile accidents, a person's
personal injury protection insurance can be used to pay 60% of lost wages. Our
office knows how to document and present any remaining lost wages to the
insurance company for the person responsible for causing the accident.
Often times personal injury cases, whether dealing with an automobile accident
case, a slip and fall accident, a negligent security case, or a pedestrian
accident, experts are needed to properly present a strong case on behalf of the
client. At Kinney, Fernandez & Boire, we are experienced in dealing with
orthopedic specialists, neurologists, chiropractors, internal medicine doctors,
radiologists, pain management specialists and physical therapists. It is not
uncommon for our attorneys to meet with a client's physician in order to discuss
the progress of treatment and make sure that our client is receiving the best
treatment available, with the proper documentation. We also hire expert
engineers, accident reconstructionist , biomechanical experts and others that
have advanced skills and knowledge that may help our client’s case.
Private investigators are sometimes essential to presenting a successful
personal injury case. Our office works closely with several top notch private
investigation firms so that we can properly investigate all aspects of a
client's case. Witness interviews, criminal background investigations, accident
scene documentation, asset investigations and other activities by our private
investigators allow us to represent our clients from a position of strength and
