Jim kept me informed and up to date. He checked on me often. It was my first experience with this type of law and was not sure if i needed it as we were never going to go to court etc. I am so happy I went to him! I would NEVER have known what to do, where to go, or how to maneuver thru the complexity of it. I would never have received the compensation I did with out Jim Dodson Law. There are too many things I would have never known on my own. I was concerned about paying a lawyer one third but he MORE than took care of that.

After my cycling accident, I turned to Jim Dodson Law. I knew through my bicycling club that Jim Dodson had an excellent reputation working with cyclists like myself in our club that had been involved in traffic . accidents. Jim has been extremely thorough, knowledgeable and professional while handling my case. I would highly recommend him as an attorney for anyone involved in a cycling accident. I can’t imagine another lawyer doing a better job for me than Jim and his equally competent staff that works with him.

Bradenton Personal Injury Law Firm

In 2001, Bradenton personal injury attorney Jim Dodson opened his own law offices after many years as a partner in a large personal injury firm. Jim had a vision of how law should be practiced, with client-centered legal services and personal attention to every case. Jim only accepts cases where lives have been changed as a result of injuries brought about by another person’s careless or wrongful act.

In his exclusively personal injury practice, Jim’s represents clients who have suffered losses through injury accidents, medical malpractice, or wrongful death. Jim has helped innumerable people who have experienced injuries—often catastrophic—and the families of people who have died in falls, car crashes, motorcycle collisions, and pedestrian and bicycle accidents, or medical malpractice.

What Does it Cost to Retain a Bradenton Personal Injury Lawyer?

Nothing! We offer a free consultation and accept cases on a contingency fee basis. That means it costs you nothing upfront. When your case is settled or a jury brings in a verdict, we will be paid from the settlement. You will have absolutely no out-of pocket expenses, and we’ll put that in writing!

Our Personal Guarantee

Unlike many of law firms, including most of those who bombard the public with commercials on TV, billboards, and phone books, Jim doesn’t use media advertising to create a high influx of clients. His practice is not dependent on volume. He deliberately limits the number of cases he takes; that way he can give every case and every client his personal attention.

In some large volume law firms, cases are handled mostly by file processors and case managers, but not here. Jim understands how difficult life sometimes becomes in the wake of an accident. He listens to your concerns and includes you in the decision-making process every step of the way. He is committed to handling your case professionally and compassionately as he takes the steps that are required to protect your interests in the pursuit of justice.

Although Jim limits the number of cases he accepts so he can provide personal attention and top notch service to his clients, he serves a wide area of Florida’s West Coast, including Bradenton Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, Palmetto, Clearwater, and the entire Tampa Bay area.

If you’ve been seriously injured in an accident in Bradenton or the surrounding area (including Parrish, Anna Maria Island, Ellenton, Cortez, Bayshore Gardens or Palmetto), call Jim Dodson Law at 941-404-4500 or contact us online.
