Lakeland Personal Injury Attorney & Car Accident Lawyer

The personal injury lawyers at Capaz Law Firm are passionate about helping the injured fight for the compensation they need to put their lives back together. The aftermath of a serious accident is a tumultuous time, rife with concern over health, family and finances. Unfortunately, the insurance company is not on your side. Our skilled accident attorneys in Lakeland can help you make informed decisions so you don’t leave any money on the table when it comes to settlement negotiations or trial.

Many law firms are settlement mills with attorneys who are reluctant to proceed to trial. At Capaz Law Firm, we take pride in our willingness to see a case through to the end. If the opposing party refuses to pay a fair settlement despite being presented with compelling evidence, we won’t hesitate to file a lawsuit and proceed to litigation.

We represent clients in Lakeland and throughout Polk County. If you need legal assistance after a serious injury or wrongful death in the family, contact us for a free consultation. If you don’t win compensation, you pay nothing.
