Suffering a serious injury in an auto accident or other mishap can turn your life upside down. Regardless of whether you are just visiting Florida for the first time or you have been living here for years, if your native language is not English, a language barrier can easily complicate an already-confusing legal process.
The most important thing to know is that you have rights, regardless of where you are from or how long you have been here, if you are injured in the United States in an accident that was caused by someone else's negligence. Laws in this country can ensure that the financial burden of medical bills, lost wages, long-term rehabilitation and other costs do not necessarily fall to you.
You are protected, but only a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer who has extensive experience in pursuing personal injury claims for foreigners injured in the U.S. is likely to recover the full amount you deserve.
A Personal Injury Lawyer With A Global Perspective
At the law firm of Albert Benzrihem, P.A., not only do I have a thorough understanding of personal injury laws in the U.S., but I also speak four languages fluently, including English, Spanish and French. Russian is also spoken at my offices. From my law offices in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, I have handled personal injury cases involving injured victims from dozens of countries on every continent except Antarctica.
My fluency in multiple languages is no small advantage to my foreign clients. Too often, law firms that claim to have the capability to speak another language have a paralegal or an office assistant who speaks that language. Communicating with the attorney can be frustrating and important information can get lost in translation.
My foreign-speaking clients speak directly with me, or my Russian-born wife, ensuring that I receive the complete details of the accident and that they remain fully informed about the progress of their case at every step.
Providing Aggressive Representation To Injured Parties Throughout Florida
I work with clients throughout Florida, including but not limited to those injured in Broward, Palm Beach, Lee, Collier and Miami-Dade counties.
The important first step if you are seriously injured in an accident that was caused by someone else is to immediately obtain medical treatment and then meet with a Fort Lauderdale personal injury lawyer who understands your rights and how to protect them. I offer a free consultation in which I can review the facts of your case and recommend the best course of action. Call 800-452-1636 or email me to schedule an appointment.
