Fort Lauderdale & Davie Accident Victims Turn to The Law Office of Andrew Winston for Help
Every day, people are injured due to the negligence of another person or organization. If we lived in a perfect world, those responsible would immediately offer to take care of the injured individual’s recovery and compensate them for what they were forced to endure.

The Law Office of Andrew Winston Handles All Kinds of South Florida Personal Injury Cases
Our experienced lawyers have successfully taken on a wide variety of personal injury cases in and around South Florida, and our practice areas include:
Auto Accidents. South Florida streets can be busy 24 hours a day depending on the area, and are often full of out-of-towners who do not know where they are going as well as lots of people who are in a hurry to get to the fun (or escape home) as quickly as possible
Americans With Disabilities Act Violations. No one should suffer or be discriminated against because they suffer from a disability. Contact us and we will fight to get you the compensation that you deserve.
Bicycle Accidents. Cyclists come to South Florida in droves because of the fantastic climate, but that doesn’t mean problems do not exist here. When cyclists collide with motor vehicles, the bikes – and their riders – always lose. Because cyclists do not have the same kind of protection as people riding in cars, the types of injuries associated with these accidents are often serious, and can even be fatal.
Bus & Limousine Accidents. Whether the accident occurred due to the negligence of the driver or the transportation company, these kinds of cases are more complicated than regular auto accidents, and specific statutes govern them. We can help.
Casino Accidents. As large entertainment complexes that are frequently busy 24 hours a day, casinos are ripe for accidents and injuries. If you are hurt at a casino and the management tries to get you to sign anything, do not do it. Call us first.
Dog Bites. Bites may seem like minor injuries, but that is not always the case. They can lead to infections and other illnesses, and when larger dogs (or small children) are involved, the physical damage can be severe. Pet owners need to be able to control their dogs, and should warn people if they know that their animal is a potential dangers.
Drunk Driving Accidents. Whether it’s tailgating the big game, heading home after a night of clubbing with friends, or leaving an office holiday party, far too many Floridians still make the foolish and dangerous decision to drive after drinking. If you are injured by one of these individuals, fight for the compensation you deserve.
Hotel Accidents. People come from all over the world to stay in Miami, Orlando, and other parts of Florida. Because of this, many of our hotels here are big operations with lots of moving parts, and it’s not uncommon for the ball to get dropped from time to time. Maybe your hotel forgot to fix a light in the stairwell and you fell. Or you got mugged on the way to your room due to a lapse in security. If a hotel is negligent and you are harmed, you deserve compensation.
Legal Malpractice. Lawyers have a duty of care to make sure that they provide their clients with the best possible legal advice and care. If you work with an attorney who fails in this duty for one reason or another and you suffer losses, contact us so that we can help you to hold them responsible.
Medical Malpractice. Much like lawyers, doctors also have a duty of care. But the difference between legal and medical malpractice is that when a doctor is neglectful in their care, people can come to serious physical harm or even die. You should not have to pay for preventable medical errors.
Motorcycle Accidents. When motorcyclists get into accidents, the results tend to be very serious, and it is not uncommon for the rider to be thrown from the vehicle or pinned under it. Cars are often at fault in these types of crashes because the drivers react improperly around motorcycles or may not even see them because they were looking for larger vehicles.
Pedestrian Accidents. South Florida pedestrians are hit by motor vehicles at a frighteningly high rate, and it often seems like the state was designed for cars first and people second. Unfortunately, when pedestrians are hit, it often causes catastrophic injuries, so it is vital that you seek compensation.
Property Damage Claims. Even in an idyllic destination like Florida, accidents, crime, and disasters do happen. When fire, water, wind, mold, vandalism, or accidents cause damage to your home, business, or car, you may be able to file an insurance claim to help you replace, rebuild, or repair your property. A property damage lawyer can help you in this process, ensuring the insurance companies do not deny you the full amount to which you are entitled.
Premises Liability (Slip and Fall Accidents). Local businesses, public areas, and even private residences have a duty to make sure that their property is safe and secure for anyone who visits. If you fall and injure yourself due to an issue caused by a property owner’s negligence, they should compensate you for the incidents.
Taxi Cab Accidents. Lots of people use cabs to get around South Florida, and drivers sometimes cut corners to get you where you are going faster in order to move on to their next fare. If you are hurt in a taxi cab accident because a driver acted negligently, the cab company may have to pay you compensation.
Truck Accidents. Big trucks cause big damage when they hit other vehicles or people. Often these crashes occur because the driver was rushing to make a delivery or was tired from working too many hours. If you are hit by a truck, get a lawyer immediately because the company will fight back as hard as they can to avoid giving you the compensation you need and deserve.
Uber Ride Sharing Accidents. Ride sharing is relatively new to South Florida, and the rules and regulations that govern it are still being ironed out. Who pays for injuries? What if you are hit by a driver using the app but not transporting someone? These are questions for legal professionals, and you owe it to yourself to find out if you can get compensation.
Wrongful Death. Getting compensation for someone’s death will not bring them back, but it can help you and your family to recover and get those responsible for the accident to change their ways and make sure it does not happen again. If someone you love dies due to the negligence of another person or organization, you owe it to them and to yourself to fight back.
Lawlor Winston Will Go to Trial If Necessary
Many personal injury firms will do everything they can to come to a settlement agreement before a case goes to court. Why? Because they know that their lawyers do not have trial experience and are more likely to lose if they have to speak in front of a judge.

Our lawyers are fantastic at finding ways to come to favorable settlements without going to trial, because we know that many of our clients need money as soon as possible to help pay for medical bills and other related expenses. But if push comes to shove and the responsible parties only make lowball offers, we are more than happy to go to court to make sure you receive what you deserve.
