As a Florida Workers’ Compensation Injury Lawyer & Civil Trial Lawyer, Scott R. Marshall has dedicated over 20 years of his life to serving injured workers under the Florida Workers’ Compensation Law, as well as victims of personal injury and wrongful death accidents resulting from automobile negligence, truck and motorcycle negligence, bicycle and pedestrian injuries, medical malpractice, dog bites, defective products in product liability claims, premises liability involving slip and falls, trip and falls, electrocution, negligent security, and much more.
The foundation of our representation is built upon personal relationships with our clients. Scott has always believed that there is no better way of understanding a client’s case than taking the time to get to know them. This is something that is largely lost in the world of personal injury law. Our boutique injury law firm handles a relatively small number of cases so that our firm can do what it does best, and give each client’s case the attention it needs and deserves. Despite — or perhaps because of — our small size, we have the time, the experience and the resources to pursue the most complex of claims against the biggest defendants in the world.
Our philosophy: bring the fight to them. In the eyes of an insurance company, Injured Workers and other victims of negligence are a file number. Our experience has lead us to the conclusion that the best way of dealing with the callous nature of insurance claims handling is to bring the fight to them swiftly and firmly, forcing them to act or face consequences. We don’t mess around. We expect insurance carriers to respond quickly to our demands, or we simply initiate the litigation process, seeking a trial as soon as possible. This philosophy has brought us a reputation among defense attorneys and insurance adjusters as effective, aggressive advocates for our clients.
Scott is committed to professionalism. Despite our aggressive approach fighting for clients, Scott supports the dignity and decorum of the civil justice system by treating his colleagues with the same professional courtesy he expects from them. It is in large part due to this professionalism that Martindale-Hubbell has given Scott an AV Preeminent Rating, the highest rating a lawyer can receive for ethical standards and legal ability based on reviews from his peers and judges.
