Personal Injury

Aggressive Florida Personal Injury Lawyers

Serving Fort Lauderdale, Miami, the Palm Beaches and beyond

Sometimes individuals or loved ones are faced with substantial injuries because of another’s negligence. The Florida trial lawyers at Mathews Giberson LLP can help. We employ a robust fact-finding investigation before we initiate litigation. Our investigative approach and ability to focus on the details sets us apart from other personal injury firms that mill thousands of cases. At Mathews Giberson LLP our clients are individuals, not file numbers.

We handle all types of accident and injury claims, including, auto accidents; semi and large commercial truck accidents; birth injuries; nursing home abuse, traumatic brain injuries; spinal cord injuries; motorcycle injuries; bus, train and public transportation accidents; accidents involving drunk drivers; burns; medical malpractice (including faulty medical devices and hospital errors); negligent security and premises liability; invasion of privacy; wrongful death; product liability (including children’s toys, infant/nursery products and faulty tires); civil rights violations and personal watercraft or boating accidents. In addition, we evaluate and if warranted, initiate pharmaceutical litigation.

Auto Accidents:

Whether you were struck by a drunk driver, rear-ended in traffic, or were ‘vehicle number three’ in a multi-car pileup, we will investigate the accident, evaluate your injuries, and take into account all costs associated with your recovery. Our investigative approach sets us apart from other firms.

Semi and Large Commercial Truck Accidents:

For victims of tractor-trailer truck accidents, we will initiate an investigation that includes accessing black boxes, taking photographs, examining the accident scene, and conducting witness interviews. We also seek to identify all parties responsible for the accident including, but not limited to, the driver, the trucking company, or the failure of a defective product. Our Florida trial lawyers complete a thorough methodology to challenge the trucking company’s internal investigators/experts and insurance provider to help victims and their families collect the damages.

Birth Injuries:

A birth injury is a trauma to the baby that occurs during the birthing process. There are a number of things that can go wrong in the course of labor and delivery for both the baby and the mother, including preeclampsia, oxygen deprivation (which can cause Cerebral Palsy), broken bones, and Erb’s Palsy.

Nursing Home Abuse:

If you have a suspicion that your loved one or friend may be experiencing nursing home abuse and/or neglect, please contact the attorneys at Mathews Giberson LLP. We defend the rights of elderly people who have suffered abuse, neglect, mistreatment, and any type of assault at the hands of their caregivers.

Traumatic Brain Injuries:

If you or a loved one were injured in any type of accident (automobile accidents, football and other sports accidents, accidents resulting from product defects, falls, etc.) and experienced headaches, concussion, nausea, dementia, behavioral changes, seizures, or coma, you may be able to collect damages for a traumatic brain injury.

Spinal Cord Injury:

We help people who have experienced substantial spinal cord injuries in various kinds of accidents.

Motorcycle Accidents:

Motorcycle riders are at distinct disadvantage in most accident situations. Motorcycle riders are most often injured or killed when a driver fails to see them in time or fails to yield the right of way. We investigate the unique circumstances of each motorcycle accident and use the facts to prove fault and pursue maximum compensation.

Bus, Train, and Public Transportation Accidents:

We represent the victims of bus, and locomotive train accidents, whether you were a passenger or an innocent bystander. We also represent the families of those killed in catastrophic crashes in wrongful death lawsuits.

Construction Zone Accidents:

We represent people injured in construction zones due to slips and trips, equipment malfunctions, falls from scaffolds, chemical explosions and fires, electrocution, crushing accidents, and the failure of a contractor to ensure a safe working environment.

Accidents Involving Drunk Drivers:

Alcohol-related wrecks are almost always preventable. If you or a family member is hit by a drunk driver, you can sue for damages to cover hospital expenses, tests, treatments, surgeries, medical equipment (such as wheelchairs or walkers), future medical expenses, reconstructive surgeries, loss of wages, loss of earning potential, and pain and suffering.


We represent burn victims who have sustained injuries in house fires, motor vehicle accidents, semi truck accidents, propane accidents, and accidents resulting from defective products.

Medical Malpractice:

We represent people who are neglected or unnecessarily hurt in the course of treatment, testing, surgery, and childbirth, including those who have contracted hospital-borne infections or developed bedsores. We also investigate the failure to diagnose brain abscesses, cancers, preeclampsia, and heart attacks.

Negligent Security and Premises Liability:

Business and commercial property owners have an obligation to protect people on their premises from crime and hazardous conditions. If you were attacked, injured, or were a victim of a crime that occurred on someone else’s property, you may have a case for negligent security.

Invasion of Privacy:

When someone’s privacy is violated it can be extremely traumatic and have lasting effects. The attorneys at Mathews Giberson LLP have specific experience prosecuting invasion of privacy claims through trial. Contact the attorneys at Mathews Giberson LLP if you have been the victim of invasion of privacy.

Wrongful Death:

Our Florida trial lawyers will represent the families of those who have lost loved ones because of someone else’s negligence, whether the death was caused by an accident, a product malfunction, a violent crime, or medical malpractice.

Product Liability:

Even if the product that caused your injury has not been recalled, we will investigate all known manufacturer’s defects, design flaws, and labeling to prove fault and collect damages in your accident case.

Civil Rights:

We defend the rights of people who are persecuted because of their race, ethnic background, religion, or gender. This includes incidents of sexual harassment, denial of promotions and raises, age discrimination, defamation of character, and police brutality.

Personal Watercraft or Boating Accidents:

While personal watercraft (PWC) and boats are fun to operate they can be extremely dangerous if operated by individuals that lack proper training and experience. Most on the water injuries are the result of carelessness or recklessness of boat operators. If you or a loved one is involved in a boating accident you can benefit from early representation from an experienced attorney. The attorneys at Mathews Giberson have years of practical experience applying the Coast Guard’s Rules of the Road. Walter J. Mathews was formerly a Coast Guard licensed captain with over 30,000 nautical miles of experience.
