Justia Lawyer Rating for Jeffrey R. Garvin

North Port, Florida

North Port is a fast-growing city in Sarasota County on Florida’s Gulf Coast. It’s slated to be the spring training headquarters for the Atlanta Braves and the estimated 57,000 people, many of whom live in sprawling suburban subdivisions. It shares a southern border with Charlotte County and in addition to numerous parks, community centers and festivals, it’s the site of Warm Mineral Springs – a natural spring where the water maintains a steady temperature of 85 degrees year-round.

It’s also the site of numerous car accidents and other personal injuries. The North Port Police Department reports that in a single year, there were 1,270 traffic accidents in the city, as well as 3,050 traffic citations and 4,500 traffic warnings.

As long-time North Port personal injury lawyers, we at The Garvin Law Firm are dedicated to fighting to protect the rights and best interests of those harmed by the wrongful, negligent conduct of others.

Among the injury claims we handle in North Port:

  • Motor vehicle accidents;
  • Truck accidents;
  • Motorcycle accidents;
  • Pedestrian accidents;
  • Slip-and-fall accidents;
  • Dog bite injuries;
  • Premises liability/ property owner responsibility.

In each of these cases, if we can prove negligence by the tortfeasor (i.e., wrongdoer) caused your injuries, we will fight to secure damages. In the civil court system, “damages” refers to a sum of money that is claimed or awarded in compensation for a loss or injury.

Some examples of damages that our personal injury attorneys can pursue for North Port residents include:

  • Medical expenses;
  • Lost wages;
  • Loss of earning capacity;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Loss of life enjoyment.

These are called “compensatory damages,” because they refer to compensation one receives to “make whole” after the trauma. In some limited cases, there may also be grounds for “punitive damages,” which are generally limited per F.S. 768.72 to cases wherein there is a reasonable showing of intentional misconduct or gross negligence. Having handled many cases in the North Port area, our personal injury lawyers see punitive damages most often applied in drunk driving cases.

These matters are generally heard within the 12th Judicial Circuit Court or in Florida’s Second District Court of Appeal.
