Personal Injury and Wrongful Death cases include claims for serious bodily injury and the death of a family member through the negligent actions of other individuals or companies.

We are experienced with the serious, disabling and often degenerative medical problems that arise when clients are injured by the negligent actions of others. Our attorneys work with specialized doctors who are expert in diagnosing and treating some of the more complex conditions associated with trauma, such as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), a severe neurological condition that causes serious pain, has proven to be real, but is not widely understood by all doctors. Coker, Schickel, Sorenson & Posgay is one of the few trial firms in Jacksonville, Florida who have experience in successfully concluding cases where the client suffers from RSD as an after effect of a serious accident.
