Douglas P. Johnson of Counsel

South Florida Personal Injury Attorney

“This is a fantastic team of lawyers! Everyone who worked there treated me like I was their most important case, even though it wasn’t a major car accident case. I would highly recommend them.” –Jaime H., client.

Mr. Johnson handles all types of personal injury cases, from the simple and relatively straightforward to the lengthy and complicated cases. Every client who is injured because someone else caused an accident deserves to be compensated for those injuries, especially in a system where health insurance often fails to cover all essential costs.

Douglas Paul Johnson is an experienced litigator who has been handling personal injury claims since 1985. Mr. Johnson takes a problem-solving attitude towards his cases. He strives to identify his clients’ goals and incorporates those goals into the clients’ objectives in the litigation process. Mr. Johnson has shown great empathy and understanding for his injured clients. With these goals and understanding in mind, he endeavors to achieve the highest financial awards possible for their benefit.

South Florida Personal Injury Lawyer Takes a Problem-Solving Approach to All Cases

Mr. Johnson has a thorough understanding of what it takes to succeed in recovering maximum compensation for his injured clients. Importantly, he believes that because every single case is unique, a distinct and personalized approach must be taken in every case regardless of seemingly similar legal facts.

This means much more than simply analyzing the specific facts of the case. Although it seems intuitive that every client’s goal is to recover the maximum amount of compensation possible for their injuries, in reality, while maximizing compensation is ideal, this is rarely the client’s sole objective or concern. Mr. Johnson understands that some clients’ financial situation means that they would prefer to reach a settlement award agreement as quickly as possible, without resorting to a lengthy trial. Other clients are motivated by holding the person or organization responsible for their injuries accountable in a more public forum, and, therefore, would prefer to fully litigate their case to obtain the highest award possible.

These unique aspects of a clients’ preferences inform the legal strategies that are best used to both protect the client’s legal interests and to ensure that the client’s ancillary goals are met.

What Accident Victims Can Expect in Selecting Douglas Johnson to Advocate on Their Behalf

Clients can expect that Mr. Johnson will take their case seriously even if other attorneys have rejected the case. Every case deserves the same dedicated legal representation and attention given to the most complex personal injury cases. In every case, Mr. Johnson will:

  • Listen to his clients’ preferences and goals to develop an understanding of how they would be most comfortable proceeding to recover compensation,
  • Formulate a smart and strategic argument for recovering compensation,
  • Provide his honest, straightforward opinion about available recovery options and the potential consequences of any given course of action,
  • Advocate on his clients’ behalf through negotiations with negligent third parties, as well as their insurance representatives and defense attorneys,
  • Take all available action to protect the clients’ rights and recover the highest settlement award possible,
  • Aggressively litigate the client’s case through trial if other options are unfavorable or insufficient.

The simple fact is that many lawyers get weighed down by choosing the same recovery strategy in every single case they take on. By focusing on the individual client as a person with unique and independent goals and needs, Mr. Johnson believes he obtains the best possible legal results for each client he represents.

Attorney Johnson’s Motivation for Practicing Law

Lawyers practice law and take on the responsibility of advocating on others’ behalf so that the client does not have to gain a complete understanding of the complex legal system in order to make sure his or her rights are upheld. Mr. Johnson believes that it is his responsibility to identify the legal options for recovering compensation and to work with the client to select the best course of action for that client. He strives to never lose sight of the fact that it is the client’s financial future on the line. Protecting those financial interests is what motivated Mr. Johnson to build his legal practice around protecting injured victims’ rights and what continues to motivate him in his ongoing daily practice.
