Who We Help

The Law Offices of Brett Hastings serves clientele from all parts of Jacksonville and the surrounding area who have been injured by somebody’s carelessness, recklessness or malicious behavior. Priority is given to clients whose injuries have incapacitated them or altered their lifestyle on a long-term or permanent basis. High priority is also given to clients having a difficult time getting the treatment and financial support they need.

Victims of serious injuries often experience a lot of fear, frustration and anger over their situation. Injuries keep them from their normal activities and cause them daily pain. They also become emotionally exhausted as they deal with medical bills, restrictions on their activities, and new conflicts with family, friends and loved one-usually arising out of the need to care for or take over responsibilities of the injured person. Financial stress also takes a heavy toll. Medical bills pour in, and they have to manage them and try to get insurance companies to pay them. Additionally, many injury victims cannot work while recovering from injuries and therefore aren’t earning the income needed to pay their ordinary bills and expenses. Creditors and collectors start calling. Family members may take additional jobs or pursue new, higher-paying jobs. These things just add to the emotions and strain already being endured, creating a cumulating vortex of stress and frustration.

Injury victims have a right to live in peace and, especially, heal in peace. High levels of stress can even inhibit healing and prolong the situation. That’s why Florida law provides injury victims the means to collect financial compensation from the people responsible for their injuries. And that’s why the Law Offices of Brett Hastings represent only injury victims-never insurance companies.

Mr. Hastings has experience handling complex injury and liability cases against some of the largest corporations in America. Having wrested multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements from wealthy corporations and their large, expensive law firms, Mr. Hastings welcomes cases that other injury and product liability lawyers find intimidating. If you think your case be particularly difficult to prove, like a traumatic brain injury-car accident lawsuit in which the injuries and their effects aren’t outwardly apparent, or the liable parties have resources to hire a formidable law firm, call the Law Offices of Brett Hastings first.

About Our Approach

4 Keys to Our Clients Success with Injury

This is YOUR case. It’s supposed to bring you relief and make your life easier-not be another frustration or another thing to stress over. We keep your injury case from becoming another worry or frustration by making sure you fully understand your case-the legal issues involved, the challenges we have to overcome, and the tactics that we are planning to use. From the very beginning we keep you up to date and connected to your personal injury compensation case. We communicate frequently by phone and email to let you know about new developments, new deadlines or court dates, and results of our investigations and inquiries. We also will hold regular meetings with you to make sure we’re all on the same page. And you’ll get direct dial numbers for Mr. Hastings and other key members of your case staff to make sure you can reach someone when you need to.

Communication

Detailed, open, frequent communication between us and you, as we mentioned above-is one of four key factors we believe are essential to the success of any case. This simply put is what separates us from all the large personal injury firms. The single largest complaint of most personal injury clients is that they can’t get a hold of their lawyer and they don’t know what is going on in their case. Brett Hastings will not allow this to be the case and the commitment to communicating with clients is what we believe The other components are:

  • Thoroughness
  • Preparation
  • Personal Involvement

Thoroughness
Brett Hastings believes in being thorough in his investigation and planning. He will review every aspect of your case completely, uncover all the facts, and review all case law relevant to your situation. Surprises should be kept to a minimum and they should never happen in the court room.

Preparation
Mr. Hastings and his staff prepare a complete plan and strategy for your case, from developing evidence and testimony, to planning how to handle negotiations. If your case is goes to trial, your legal team has a plan to handle every argument and objection the defense counsel may attempt to use.

Personal Involvement
Some personal injury and product liability attorneys, especially in large firms, hire less-experienced lawyers, paralegals and aides handle most of their cases. It’s not until it’s time to head into court that the lead lawyer starts reviewing the case. However, at the Law Offices of Brett Hastings our approach is to be hands-on with each and every case, personally guiding, strategizing and taking action every step of the way. Mr. Hastings insists on personally meeting every client within the first week of the case. This ensures that your case is complete, that nothing is overlooked, and that Mr. Hastings knows every inch of your case when it goes to trial.
