Ocala Personal Injury Attorneys
Unlike many of the TV and billboard lawyers seen in Ocala, we have lived and worked in Ocala our entire lives. Our local friendships are valuable to our clients
Having handled 100s of cases near Ocala, major cases from Jacksonville to Key West, even trials from Pensacola to Miami, and having previously represented insurance companies, now our adversaries.
Personal Injury Attorneys Serving
Ocala and Central Florida
We are not like many Ocala personal injury firms you see today with the loud billboards and repeating TV commercials. The Briggs Law Firm is old fashioned. We rely on word of mouth. Our former clients do the talking. As a new client, you will meet directly with a partner in our firm, either Randy or Bo. You will have close communication with him, and your calls are promptly returned. We still practice with personal relationships, the traditional way.
We become involved when someone has negligently injured another. We represent Ocala injury victims and families in car, truck, motorcycle and golf cart accidents as well as injuries involving nursing home neglect, serious falls or dangerous products.
For truly injured
We represent only those who are suffering, not those out to make a buck. Our clients are people whose lives have been disrupted and changed due to the carelessness of others. Some may never work again. Others have lost a father, mother, spouse, or a child and are trying to piece their lives back together. When we are called, and then meet with a new client, we make certain there is a real claim and injury at hand, or we don’t take the case.
We accept fewer cases so we can fully focus on our truly injured clients. We are proud of our widely-recognized reputation for holding negligent people and their insurance carriers accountable for the harm they cause to victims.
If that’s the kind of law firm you want to work with, we want to meet you and discuss
what happened, and where we can go from here.
REPRESENTATION FOR SENIORS
We understand the types of injuries seniors can suffer in falls and motor vehicle accidents, and we are committed to obtaining full compensation despite your age.
REPRESENTATION FOR VETERANS
Our founding attorney, Randy Briggs, served as an officer in the U.S. Army. We understand veteran’s lives, are sensitive to their issues, and will work tirelessly on their behalf.
“My son was killed in a motorcycle accident when he ran into the back of a log truck that was stopped in the road. The insurance company denied all responsibility because it was a rear-end accident. Randy was able to prove that the trailer was not properly equipped with lights and reflective tape, and with the assistance of a reconstruction engineer and a human factors expert was able to demonstrate why the log truck trailer could not be seen, and how easily it could have been seen if properly equipped. The insurance company was convinced and settled the case a week before the trial. I believe they honored my son in this senseless accident by never giving up, and insisting on a proper result.”
“Randy represented me several years ago when I was literally run over by a golf cart by a careless driver who was looking behind him resulting in several injuries and surgery to my foot. So when my wife and I were hit by a truck on the bridge between Tampa and St. Petersburg, I would not consider hiring anyone else even though there are plenty of lawyers in the Tampa Bay area. He surpassed my expectations and executed a strategy he had created, step-by-step, which I believe maximized the large recoveries I made. Through his personal interest and efforts, we developed an enduring friendship and in fact we communicate often, to this day.”
“My son tragically died when he was a passenger in a car with other college students that was struck by a drunk driver on the wrong side of the road. We hired The Briggs Law Firm. Randy thoroughly investigated the accident, hired engineering experts, dug up road construction records, and determined other irresponsible people contributed to the accident. The accident occurred where two road construction projects merged. A series of errors were made by various contractors and engineers that led to an unsafe temporary traffic pattern that failed to provide proper roadway markings, striping, reflectors, and signs which caused confusion for many people, even one of the deputies investigating the crash.”
“I reside in New York. I had a bad motorcycle accident in Florida with over $120,000 in medical bills with a controversial condition that the other side claimed was not related to the accident. The Briggs’ Firm had to hire an investigator in Canada to find the negligent Canadian driver, sue him through some complicated international legal requirements, and then they overcame his claim that the accident was my own fault. They got me everything I deserved just prior to trial. I was fortunate to find such trustworthy and hard-working lawyers when I do not even live in Florida. My daughter, a nurse, recommended them because of their reputation, and I would highly recommend them to anyone.”
“I researched lawyers carefully on the internet, and decided to call The Briggs Law Firm. Boy am I glad I did. A store employee fell through an unsafe railing, knocking me to the ground, severely injuring me to the extent that my life-long career as a nurse ended. They worked tirelessly on my case, and ultimately convinced the insurance company on all contested issues, achieving a confidential result well into six figures. I would recommend them to anyone. Their personal interest in my family and our lives was very impressive.”
“My little boy was run over and killed by a float in a Christmas parade in Central Florida. Randy represented my husband and me. He met with us countless times and he and his assistant were always available to answer any questions, and to explain as everything moved forward. They took a very personal interest in our loss, and they were able to conclude our case and make all the responsible parties accountable. Those first couple of years were a very difficult time for us and The Briggs Law Firm was just incredible. They got for us what we thought was a very large result, but they assured us it was a proper result. We would recommend The Briggs Law Firm to anyone.”
“I had a car accident that no one seemed interested in. And then Randy became involved and believed in me. He took the time to fully investigate and prove to the other side that even though my injuries were only treated by a chiropractor, my injuries kept me from pursuing a career in law enforcement that I wanted. The results he obtained were actually shocking to me. Even more impressive was his belief in me, his trust in me, and his commitment to my case.”
“Believe it or not, I met Randy when I was in prison. He was part of a Christian motorcycle ministry that visited our prison. I talked to him and remembered his name in case I ever needed a lawyer when I got out. Well I got out and recently had a motorcycle accident. I called him from the hospital where I was admitted for 10 days. Even though it was 15 years ago, he remembered me. He took my case. He not only recovered all available insurance, but he negotiated thousands of dollars of medical bills so I had no remaining debt. He was respectful of me and professional even though I made some bad decisions earlier in my life. I would recommend his office to anyone.”
“My brother and I were both teenagers when our father was killed on I-75 in Georgia. He was a truck driver, and tried to avoid a car that was being driven by a foreign tourist who swerved across three lanes in front of him trying to make an exit ramp. The Briggs Law Firm worked with engineers, other experts, and the Georgia Highway Patrol in proving what happened and chasing after the driver and the rental car company. They used Georgia law to make a very large recovery which provided many things for my brother and me, including a college education fund, income, and future lump sum payments. We really appreciate the work they did and especially the way in which they constantly gave us reports and explained everything.”
“I was kicked by a horse. Normally that is just a risk of being in the horse business, but Randy was able to prove it was the result of negligent mishandling by the horse owner. In addition, he helped refer me for proper medical care as my ultimate diagnosis of Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy had been missed, and mishandled until he was able to get me to doctors who understood this condition, and knew how to treat this condition. My case settled for $500,000. Through the representation and guidance of The Briggs Law Firm, my life actually changes from constant pain with an inability to even function, to one with significant pain relief and a functional life.”
“I’ve had four motorcycle accidents since I moved to Florida. They were all caused by other drivers. And I was injured in each one. Randy represented me in each of them with what I thought were very good results. Maybe I should not ride a motorcycle. But I do. It has always been my hobby. I am very careful but car drivers are not. If I ever need help again, I’ll call Randy again. He rides motorcycles himself and understands motorcycle accidents.”
“My wife and I were in a bad auto accident. Because I served many years in the U.S. Army, I wanted a lawyer with military experience and I found that with Randy who I learned had been a Lieutenant in the Army. I knew that I could trust him. He went about our cases in a very disciplined way. It reminded me of my military training. He was very fair with the other side, but never gave an inch. That’s the reason I hired him. We could not be more pleased we did.”
