Motor Vehicle Accident
An elderly married couple was rear-ended by a private school-bus, causing massive property damage and catastrophic injuries to both. The defendant bus company destroyed evidence in violation of a Court Order, the bus had bald tires, and the driver of the bus was terminally ill at the time of the crash.
Toddler Drowned in Pool
A two-year old toddler, the youngest of 5 children, tragically lost her life when she fell into the pool at her family’s rented home. The home was delivered to the family by its absentee owners without any of the pool safety features required by Florida law pursuant Florida’s “Residential Swimming Pool Safety Act” (Florida Statutes Section 515 et.seq.). The out-of-state landlords’ insurers paid their full policy limits and the uninsured management company paid $40,000. The claim is still pending against the bank that sold the non-compliant home to the absentee landlords out of foreclosure and a local pool company that serviced the pool prior to the victim’s family moving in.
A recently retired school teacher from New York was operating her golf cart on a sidewalk in her gated retirement community when the defendant lost control of his Cadillac Escalade and struck her in the rear. The Escalade completely ran over the golf cart, killing the operator instantly. The case settled confidentially for tenders of all available automobile and umbrella coverage for the Cadillac operator and all policies of uninsured motorist coverage for the golf cart operator.
A 17 year-old opera singer with a bright future almost lost her life when she sat down on an ottoman at a popular local Italian restaurant. When she sat down, her dress wafted into an open candle, one of many that had been placed on the floor for “atmosphere.” The open candle ignited the dress, causing massive third-degree burns over 30% of the unfortunate teen’s body.
Never A Fee
UNLESS WE WIN!
Personal Injury Lawyer Andrew Winston
HURT BY NEGLIGENCE IN DAVIE, PLANTATION OR COOPER CITY?
Every day, people are harmed 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 wronged individual’s recovery and compensate them for what they were forced to endure. Unfortunately, far too many in our world are more interested in protecting themselves and avoiding responsibility than coming clean and doing what is right.
That is where the experienced personal injury attorneys at The Law Office of Andrew Winston come into the picture. We know that looking for a lawyer is the last thing that you want to think about after you or a loved one has been seriously hurt in an accident or wronged by a professional that you trusted. This is especially true if your child was hurt, if the injury occurred on someone else’s property, or if the one who wronged you was your attorney.
These types of incidents tend to hit close to home and make victims want to crawl into their figurative shells and focus on recovery so that they can get back to their regular life as soon as possible. In the case of legal malpractice, even the idea of trusting another lawyer may seem impossible.
But if you truly want to get back to that life, seeking out the help of a respected Cooper City injury attorney who cares about your well-being is vital. Whether the injury in question was physical, emotional, financial, or a combination of the three, associated costs often add up quickly. For many, damages due to negligence impact their financial and personal fortunes for the rest of their life.
It should not be your responsibility to pay for something that was not your fault. As soon as you contact the Law Office of Andrew Winston, we will get to work building a case to help you get the compensation you deserve from those who put you in this position as well as send a message that this kind of behavior is not acceptable to lessen the chances of someone else having to go through a similar ordeal.

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:
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.[+] read more
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.[+] read more
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.[+] read more
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.[+] read more
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.[+] read more
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.[+] read more
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[+] read more
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.[+] read more
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.[+] read more
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.[+] read more
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.[+] read more
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.[+] read more
Ridesharing 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.[+] read more
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.[+] read more

WILL GO TO TRIAL IF NECESSARY
Many personal injury firms in Davie, Cooper City,
Plantation, and surrounding areas will do everything they can to come to a settlement agreement before a case goes to court. Why?

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.
