Any accident can be devastating and impact the rest of your life – your health, your finances, your family.
First there is the injury. Then there’s the insult of the insurance game. To avoid permanent loss, you need a lawyer. You can be sure the insurance company already has one.
Dealing with Insurance Companies
When it comes to dealing with the negligent party’s insurance company, most people think it will be simple and straightforward. But too often, the insurance company is interested only in limiting its losses, not dealing fairly. You may provide a statement, see a doctor, and submit your claims, all in good faith. Then you discover that the insurance company twists your words, or takes words out of context, to discount or deny your claim.
You are vulnerable to these maneuvers unless you hire a lawyer who understands the insurance industry and is prepared to fight to protect the justice and value of your case. 850.785.7272

Motor Vehicle Accidents
Even a minor crash can cause serious permanent injury and major financial disruption. Often, it seems that the innocent party is the one who suffers the most from an at-fault collision. And there is a bewildering array of problems to deal with — vehicle towing, repair, and replacement, emergency room visits, consultation with specialists, negotiating with multiple insurance adjusters, trying to keep working, and on and on.
You need to hire an attorney as soon as your immediate medical needs are taken care of. 850.785.7272
When a loved one dies, nothing can replace the loss. But compensation from the negligent party can provide much needed support for the surviving family members with funeral expenses, estate expenses, medical bills, loss of potential income, loss of companionship, and more.
We understand the special needs of survivors during this process and have been successful in obtaining substantial damages in such cases for our clients.
Thousands of Americans are injured every year by defective products. Sometimes the problem is poor manufacturing. Sometimes it’s poor design or the failure to give clear instructions on how to use the product safely. Very few industries are closely enough regulated so that these ticking time bombs can be caught and removed before they reach the consumer. Too often, when the worst happens, the manufacturer or distributor washes its hands of the matter, and the injured customer is kicked to the curb. It’s never easy to take on a major corporation. But at STONE & SUTTON, we stand ready to help you no matter the size of the Goliath.
Nothing is more frustrating than dealing with an insurance company that refuses to acknowledge its responsibility to you. The ads and the sales agents promise smooth sailing should you ever suffer an insured loss. But, when you do suffer a loss, the adjusters are there, often primed to read you the small print that limits your coverage. When insurance companies fail to honor their contracts – life, health, or casualty – you need lawyers who will analyze all the print and give you advice you can trust. Don’t accept the insurance company’s word that you have no rights. They are not neutral. Check it out! Call STONE & SUTTON. 850.785.7272
Slip and fall/Trip and fall
Broken stairs or sidewalks, spilled liquids and other hazards can cause devastating falls. If a property manager or homeowner knew — or should have known — about the problem that caused your accident, they may be financially responsible.
Let the lawyers at STONE & SUTTON evaluate your claim and fight for the recovery you deserve. 850.785.7272
