Although my case was not an extraordinary win due to the other parties insurance. However, they were very professional and easy to talk with. Thanks to Chris McGuire, you rock!Amanda BacskaiAmanda Bacskai ★★★★★ I was injured in a car accident while on a vacation in Florida. I live in Canada and didn't know the first thing about the legalities when it comes to out of country car accidents/how the insurance system works in the US.Initially I was not planning on obtaining a lawyer but I quickly became overwhelmed with the aggressive letters I was receiving from the at-fault driver's insurance company.After a consultation with a lawyer in Canada I was referred to Todd Minor Law and was put in touch with one of their attorney’s, Mark Ahrens. Working with Mark was wonderful. He always took the time to explain things and he answered my questions thoroughly.I am very thankful to him for everything he did for me and highly recommend him!Alex MedinaAlex Medina ★★★★★ I was involved in a car accident back in September of 2022. That was one of the lowest moments I’ve had in my life as I was just commencing studying for a career. I’d given Todd Miner law a call and that’s when I started working with Mr. Ahrens. Him and Stephanie (paralegal) are a fantastic team. They answered every question I’ve had in a timely manner and worked very hard to get what I deserved. Not only that, they were able to get the best doctors and chiropractor to help me heal the best. I cannot recommend a better team and I am forever grateful to them. I was able to finish my studies and start a career pain free. Time to soar the skies and reach for my dream. Thank you Todd Miner Law, special thanks to Mr. Ahrens and Stephanie.Response from the ownerThank you for your review, kind words, and recommendation. I’m so pleased with the outcome of your case.

It was my pleasure to assist you. Thank you for recommending me.- Todd Patty MPatty M ★★★★★ When I filled out the online form, I was not expecting a call that evening. Yet, I got a call from the man himself, Mr. Todd Miner. Anyways, the process was smooth, I had more difficulty with my insurance company than I did with Todd Miner Law. He assigned my case to one of his attorneys, and they accepted my case. My attorney kept me up to date on what was going on. If you ask me if I would hire Todd Miner Law again, that answer is definitely YES. My attorney and paralegal, they were great, friendly and understanding. They treated me with respect, and we also laughed a bit, (they're human too). Thank you for everything you did for me, very much appreciated. Patty.Response from the ownerThank you for sharing your experience, Patty! We're glad to hear that you had a smooth process with us. We appreciate your kind words and are happy we could help you.- Todd Cassidy LaneCassidy Lane ★★★★★ I just received a wonderful surprise via a check from Todd Miner Law Offices.

Todd spent 27 minutes on a call with me simply to give his professional advice (30+ years of experience as an accomplished attorney) handling insurance company's and personal injury cases to assist me with a situation where the "at fault" insurance company was strong arming me to sign a Property Damage Waiver. I so appreciate his time, advice and honesty in assisting me-he truly cares about people, especially when others are taking advantage of a situation. Attorneys usually get a bad rap but Todd Minor is a blessing! I recommend him to everyone who is looking for an attorney and wants to be treated fairly. He is passionate and will fight for what is right. Todd Minor is definitely a great advocate to have on your side. I thank you Todd, from the bottom of my heart.Response from the ownerThank you for your kind words Christine. I was happy to take the time to guide you through your property damage claim. I hope you find my recommendations helpful and wish you success against the insurance company. - Todd Jennifer BeckelJennifer Beckel ★★★★★ My son was injured while on a family vacation to Florida. Being from out of state, I didn't know where to start in searching for a personal injury attorney. After a few consultations that left me unimpressed and unconfident, I called Todd Minor Law and was connected with Mark Ahrens. I knew immediately after speaking with him that he would work hard to get a fair settlement. Working with Mark FAR exceeded my expectations. Not only is he extremely smart, talented and educated in law... he is a KIND human. He always took the time to explain things in a way that I would understand and was patient and thoughtful in all of his communication. In the end, he got us a settlement that we are extremely happy with. His hard work paid off. I can't say enough good things about my experience working with Mark. I am eternally thankful to him for everything he did for our family!Response from the ownerThank you so much for sharing your experience, Jennifer!

Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to show you how different we are from all the rest. - Todd trestin ptrestin p ★★★★★ Hands down, Todd Miner Law Firm is the place to go. If you're seeking a law firm that fights for you, even when the prospects of a good payout are slim, they definitely go above and beyond. They helped me immensely after my motorcycle crash. Thank you—I would definitely recommend them to friends and family.Response from the ownerTrestin - As I shared with you when we first spoke, I have been riding motorcycles since I was a young boy. I have also represented dozens if not hundreds of clients who have been injured in a motorcycle accident. Thank you for sharing your experience and kind words. - Todd Ron KingRon King ★★★★★ I was rear ended by an uninsured motorist and had some resulting neck and shoulder pain. I ended up having to be treated and was able to take care of the neck pain but the shoulder continued to give me trouble. As my PIP coverage was exhausted, I reached out to the Todd Miner Law office. I have been very happy with the service provided. From the first call (where Todd himself called me back) to the succesful conclusion everyone has been professional and helpful. In particular, Laurie Jay either has an amazing memory or a great note system on her computer. Because every time I called she was able to recall exactly what we had talked about the time before and just who I was and what I needed. She gave me great advice on navigating the Uninsured Motorist claim and we have been able to settle the claim in what I feel was fair to all parties. I hope I don’t ever have to use their service again but won’t hesitate to call them if needed.Response from the ownerI remember our initial call Ron. Thank you for sharing your positive experience in this review. I believe the time I spend personally speaking to clients helps our team create a custom path for success for each client. I am so grateful you trusted us with your case.- Todd Stacie HardyStacie Hardy ★★★★★ I was nervous to call a lawyer after our car accident but am so extremely thankful that I did. Todd Miner law was recommended to us and after an initial consultation, Trenton Swan was the lawyer assigned to our case. He did exactly what he said he would do and the timeframe was as expected. The unsung hero in the case was Trent’s paralegal Collette Cook. If I could give her a million stars, it still wouldn’t be enough. She answered every email and phone call almost immediately. She fought behind the scenes to make sure we received everything that we deserved. When our family had multiple serious medical issues as our case was wrapping up, she reached out to check on us because she actually cared. I never felt like a case number, or a burden, or a nuisance when I reached out multiple times in rapid succession. I can only imagine how many cases she is working at any given time, but Collette made me feel like I was the only one and I have no doubt that she makes every one of their clients feel the same way.We will always be grateful for Mr. Miner and Mr. Swan, but Collette will forever hold a special place in our hearts. If you find yourself in need of legal advice, please know that you will be in the very best hands with this most amazing team.Response from the ownerStacie - This is so wonderful to hear. Your personal experience is the experience we strive to provide to all of our clients. When you hired our firm you probably had high expectations. But you probably did not expect to connect with us on the level you did. This is just one of the many things that sets us apart from all the others. I’m so happy for you, and so proud of Collette, Trent, and my entire staff. I’m sure you will stay in touch. Thank you so much for trusting us to handle your case. - Todd Sandy BarneySandy Barney ★★★★★ Words aren't really enough to express the gratitude my father and I have towards Mark Ahrens. Mark was a blessing from beginning to end. From the first meeting we had with him, throughout the entire process, Mark was professional and caring. We are nothing but grateful. Thank you, Mark, for always being there for us, for holding my dad's hand, for your support, your kindness, your heart. You are one in a million. We would recommend Mark in a heartbeat... you can see the passion he has in helping others. He will be your attorney for life. I know he will be ours for life!Mark, again thank you for everything you did, in representing our case.

God Bless!Response from the ownerSandy - I am so happy you and your father chose our firm and were able the experience what it means to have a team of professionals who truly do care about you. It’s one thing to say it in a commercial, as so many attorneys do. But it’s another thing to actually deliver. In order to genuinely deliver, you have to have it your heart. Mark has it in his heart as do the others at our firm. We are truly unique. Thank you for sharing your experience. - Todd Chuck EvansChuck Evans ★★★★★ I cannot speak highly enough of Attorney Mark Ahrens.

Despite not being able to represent me, Attorney Ahrens generously gave me his time and patiently explained everything I needed to know about my type of case.His expertise and dedication were evident from the start.

He is extremely knowledgeable and strategic when it comes to law. I am beyond pleased with the hard work we put in to my case.

    Frequently Asked Car Accident Lawyer Questions

    Filing a claim and filing a lawsuit are not the same. A claim usually refers to the process of notifying the insurance company, while filing a lawsuit refers to the legal process that gets the case into the court system with the intention of having a judge or jury ultimately decide on the outcome of an unresolved claim for damages. The deadline to file a lawsuit is commonly referred to as the statute of limitations. In Florida, the statute of limitations for most negligence actions, such as car accidents, is four years from the date of the incident. If you file your lawsuit after four years, then it will likely be dismissed by the judge and you will have lost your chance to seek compensation for your injuries. In addition to the statute of limitations, there are many other reasons why delaying your claim can be detrimental to your lawsuit and potentially prevent you from recovering compensation for all of your damages. If you’ve been injured in a car accident, it’s imperative that you take immediate action as soon as possible and call Todd Miner Law®️. All of the auto accident attorneys at Todd Miner Law®️ are former insurance company defense attorneys. We’ve been on “the other side” and understand the complex nature and law of personal injury and will work hard to ensure we secure the compensation you deserve.

    If you suffer any serious injuries or suspected serious injuries in a car crash, then you should go to the emergency room. If necessary, call 9-1-1 and have an ambulance come out to the scene of the crash to transport you to the hospital. If you are involved in an accident with someone else who sustains severe injuries and is unable to call 9-1-1 him or herself, call an ambulance on their behalf. Anyone who sustains (or is suspected to have sustained) severe and/or catastrophic injuries should go to the emergency room after a car accident. Severe injuries include:

    • Head injuries
    • Traumatic brain injuries
    • Spinal cord injuries
    • Broken bones (fractures)
    • Hemorrhaging
    • Internal organ damage
    • Soft tissue (muscles, ligaments, etc.) damage

    If you sustain moderate or mild injuries, you may not need emergency room treatment. However, it is always best to err on the side of caution – go to the ER or visit Urgent Care if you believe you need prompt medical attention. Even if you do not initially think you need emergency care, it is critical that you see a doctor or qualified health care provider after a car crash. This is true even if you believe your injuries are mild or if you do not believe you were injured at all. In many cases, car accident injuries can take hours or even days to appear. Adrenaline often masks injuries. In the initial aftermath of the collision, you could be in shock and not notice your injuries or how severe they really are. Not only is it important that you seek medical attention for your own health and well-being, but doing so could ultimately benefit your car accident claim. Creating a record that you sought medical treatment immediately or soon after the collision could be extremely powerful evidence of your injuries, as well as the subsequent damages they led to, such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering.

    There are three main types of compensation you can obtain after an accident: economic, non-economic and punitive. Economic damages compensate for financial losses while non-economic damages compensate for the more abstract losses associated with suffering an injury. Punitive damages are not often awarded since they are usually reserved for cases where the defendant knew their actions caused harm but did them anyway. Economic and Non-Economic Damages Usually Cover:

    • Loss of income or wages
    • Diminished earning capacity
    • Past and future medical bills
    • Mental and emotional anguish
    • Physical pain and suffering

    If you were injured by a careless, reckless or otherwise negligent driver, then you deserve compensation for your losses. Similarly, if your loved one was killed in a car accident caused by another driver, our attorneys can help you file a wrongful death claim—which can help your family pay for funeral costs and any medical bills. Whatever the case, we are here to help you deal with this challenging situation by taking effective legal action. At Todd Miner Law®️, we know the aftermath of an auto accident can be challenging—not just emotionally and physically, but financially. This is why our firm works on a contingency fee basis. To put it simply: we don’t ask for any legal fees unless we secure a financial award on your behalf. That way, we can focus on your case while you focus on your recovery. If our firm doesn’t win your case, you don’t pay.

    Pure comparative negligence is a rule which allows an injured person to pursue compensation for their injuries no matter their degree of fault for the accident that led to their injuries, however, any compensation won will be reduced by their percentage of fault. Can you file a claim even if you are partially at fault for the accident that led to your injuries? In Florida you can. Just like nearly one-third of states in the United States, Florida is a “pure comparative negligence” state.

    The intensity of the impact during a car accident will often correlate to the severity of the injuries suffered by drivers and passengers. In the most violent crashes, people might suffer traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spinal cord damage and broken bones that require emergency medical attention. However, there is one serious injury that can happen in most types of collisions, even low-speed accidents: whiplash. A whiplash injury is an acceleration-deceleration injury that involves the neck rocking, or “whipping” back and forth rapidly. Whiplash can pull, tear, and twist tendons, nerves, and ligaments in the neck and upper back. Rear-end accidents are commonly associated with whiplash injuries because the impact to the rear of the car jolts the occupants backward before shoving them forward – putting enormous stress on their necks. Proper use of headrests can help prevent whiplash but doesn’t guarantee prevention. The symptoms of a whiplash injury can include:

    • Severe neck, back and shoulder pain
    • Limited neck mobility
    • Migraines or chronic headaches

    For many car accident victims, whiplash injuries start with subtle symptoms –  like soreness around the neck. This can be problematic because it can lull people into misbelieving that they are relatively unharmed after a crash. As a result, many car accident victims decline a trip to the hospital because they do not think they are “injured”, only to learn otherwise days later when the symptoms worsen. Even more troubling, many car accident victims who do go the hospital after a car accident, are simply sent home with nothing more than pain medication and anti-inflammatory medication. Therefore, it is wise to seek follow-up care with a specialist after the initial hospital visit. Most medical providers who specialize in car accident injuries will prescribe an MRI to determine if any injuries to certain soft tissues – such as the discs located between the vertebrae in the spine. In addition to the obvious as discussed above, obtaining medical attention the same day will also help establish that your injury or condition was caused by the car accident. Insurance companies often try to claim that an injury is pre-existing or was caused by an event that occurred after the car accident. Proper medical documentation is critical in proving your claim.
