Many people know they may have a claim if they slip and fall in a Pembroke Pines store or are injured in a public space or a commercial property.

This is not always the case, and you may want to investigate whether you have a claim, since the costs of an injury can be significant. Seeking financial recovery can help you defray some of these costs.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
