Meet the Firm
The Personal Injury Team is an AV Rated and nationally recognized law firm based in Jacksonville, Florida. As a client or potential client of our firm dealing with the aftermath of an automobile accident or some other trauma from a truck, bicycle, pedestrian, or motorcycle accident should know that we are first and foremost the Law Firm Built for You. While this web page is titled "About Us", we want to make it clear to you that we are much more interested in finding out more about you, your case, and your need for legal advice, guidance, experience, representation and results, it is important for you to know the kind of lawyer and law firm (in our case, "law team") that you are hiring and what can be done for you to get the compensation, damages, and results you deserve.We Represent Victims of Accidents and Seek Justice on Their Behalf
Our personal injury attorneys all have trial experience, the skill, and work ethic to get the job done for you. We do one thing and one thing well - we handle personal injury cases for clients injured as a result of an automobile, truck, bicycle, pedestrian, or motorcycle accident. Unlike many attorneys these days, we can and will take your personal injury case to trial to get the results, damages, compensation, and, yes, the respect you deserve. As noted by American statesman and one of our country's founding fathers, Alexander Hamilton, "I think that the first duty of society is justice." At The Personal Injury Team, our attorneys firmly believe in justice for the victims of accidents caused by the negligence, carelessness or fault of other drivers.Our Goal on Every Case is to Maximize the Financial Recovery of the Client
We do not represent automobile insurance companies or big business. We represent individuals who have been injured as a result of a crash or accident. We, as a personal injury law team, focus our work and attention on a daily basis on you, the client, and the aggressive pursuit and progression of your personal injury case. The goal of each case is to maximize the financial recovery for the client. In doing so, many of our cases, as compared with other personal injury firms, end up going to trial or getting very close to going to trial before settlement. Insurance companies tend to take a case and client more seriously when there are experienced trial lawyers in place handling the case. The insurance companies and businesses know that The Personal Injury Team will take a case to try. We have proven this over 180 times by taking a case to trial and obtaining a verdict. Many of these cases involved low settlement offers that ended up pushing a case to trial with a verdict in excess of $1,000,000. We have a number of verdicts in excess of $1,000,000 thanks to the trust, respect, and confidence of our clients and skills, resources, time, and strategy that we put into each accident case and trial.We are Trusted by Clients and Other Attorneys to Handle Personal Injury Cases
Founded by Eric S. Block (known as Rick Block), our law firm has developed over the past 25 years to one that is not only trusted and counted on by injury victims to handle their case, but also by local as well as out of area attorneys who need an experienced trial attorney to get the job done and the case to trial if necessary. As such, many of the firm's cases involve the work of not just one, but two law firms. Furthermore at our law firm, you do not get just one personal injury attorney to handle the case -- you get an entire team of attorneys ready to handle the current caseload and, yes, new cases.Our Team of Attorneys Will Pursue Justice for You
Rick Block has been lead trial attorney in a number of million dollar plus settlements and verdicts. He also knows that he does not do this work alone. He is just part of the team - a wonderful team of trial attorneys that include Caitlin O'Donnell, as well as often other nationally recognized lawyers such as Dorothy Clay Sims. Each of these attorneys believes and follows the wise words of Alexander Hamilton in pursuing "justice" for the personal injury clients of the firm.
