Do I Have a Case?


Our Sarasota personal injury law firm has expertise in a range of practice areas. The attorneys at Dennis Hernandez & Associates, P.A., are experienced in these types of personal injury cases and many more:

Auto accidents: Car accidents are among the most common types of personal injury claims. Because establishing fault can be challenging, it’s important to have an experienced auto accident attorney guide you through your case.

Motorcycle accidents: As more motorcyclists take to the road, the greater the chance that motorcycle accidents will occur on Sarasota roads. In addition, riders are more vulnerable than drivers in cars when an accident happens. When severe injuries are the result, a motorcycle accident lawyer can help you determine appropriate compensation for the potentially life-long effects such injuries can have.

Medical malpractice: An expert medical malpractice attorney can help you navigate the complex legal processes that come with challenging medical professionals and institutions, and their insurance companies.

Nursing home abuse: We are dedicated to protecting the rights of the elderly and other vulnerable people, and will hold negligent parties accountable when your loved one has been abused or neglected in a nursing home facility.

Truck accidents: Determining responsibility when a truck accident has occurred can be very challenging: Various entities and persons may be involved, such as the truck driver, the company that owns the truck, and the owner of the trailer. The guidance of a seasoned truck accident attorney is essential to a successful outcome in your personal injury accident claim.

Wrongful death: Losing a loved one is difficult enough, but when the loss involves the negligence or deliberate actions of someone else, it can be especially devastating for survivors. Our wrongful death attorneys will aggressively seek the full compensation available to you and your family for your loss.
