Maybe a Boca Raton driver more invested in texting than the road slammed into your car. Or an improperly hung clearance sign came crashing down on your head at a local department store. It could even be that the pharmacist was not paying enough attention and gave you the wrong medicine.


There are many ways that you can get hurt in this world, but when others’ actions cause those injuries – even when they are not intentional – you should not have to pay for their mistake.


At Slootsky, Perez & Braxton, we strongly believe that people and organizations need to be held accountable for accidents and injuries caused by negligence. Why? Because when there is accountability, everyone ultimately wins.


When you look at the big picture, businesses and organizations in and around Fort Lauderdale are more likely to change dangerous policies when they realize the cost of doing harm outweighs the savings of cutting corners. Sometimes fixing dangerous practices is even something included in a settlement decision, so organizations are forced to engage in better business policies. In the long run, this ends up saving them money and keeps South Florida families and communities safer.


And on a personal level, going after fair and just compensation for victims and their loved ones can help to ease the financial burden of being involved in serious accident. If you are hurt, there is a good chance that you are not only dealing with high hospital bills, but also lost wages, pain and suffering, and possibly even household expenses if your condition makes it impossible for you to take care of yourself or your family while recovering. Those who have lost a loved one due to someone else’s actions can be compensated for burial and funeral costs, emotional distress, and the loss of their loved one’s companionship, financial contribution, and services and support.


Suffering a serious accident or injury that someone else caused is bad enough by itself – do not exacerbate the situation for yourself by adding financial injury on top of the physical one. The experienced and compassionate attorneys at Slootsky, Perez & Braxton have helped many people just like you to get back on their feet after they have been knocked down by someone else, and we can do the same for you.




If you want to ensure that you receive fair and just compensation for your injuries, it is vital that you work with a knowledgeable South Florida injury attorney. But it is not enough to simply hire someone with this title. For the best chance at getting the compensation you deserve, you need to make sure that the lawyer you hire has a track record of success – and that they have positive outcomes in accident cases that are similar to yours.


The lawyers at Slootsky, Perez & Braxton have been able to get fantastic results for our clients in a number of different kinds of personal injury cases, including:




Ms. Perez has been practicing law in Florida for more than 10 years. For two years, she served as an Orange County public defender, and she brought that knowledge with her when she joined Slootsky, Perez & Braxton, where she is now the lead workers’ compensation trial counsel for the firm. In addition to this focus, Ms. Perez has tried a number of bench & jury cases involving serious auto accidents. In 2003, the Florida Workers’ Advocates named Ms. Perez “Rookie of the Year” for her work protecting workers.


The firm’s leading trial attorney, Mr. Braxton began his law career working for the big insurance companies that he now often finds himself fighting against. His years defending insurers against personal injury lawsuits not only provided him with invaluable courtroom experience, but also gave him invaluable insight into how injury defenses are built – knowledge he now uses to break down these defenses & help victims. As someone who has literally worked in personal injury for his entire career, Mr. Braxton has personally litigated thousands of cases.


A Florida native, Mr. Stein has been practicing since 1997. In his role at Slootsky, Perez & Braxton, he focuses on personal injury protection (PIP) cases, wrongful death, and personal injury. As a family man with two daughters, Robert Stein’s goal in personal injury cases is both to help you get the fair and just compensation you deserve and to make South Florida safer by encouraging negligent individuals and organizations to change their ways.


The firm’s founder has been representing injury victims in the Fort Lauderdale area for over two decades. He focuses on workers’ compensation cases and personal injury, particularly auto accidents. Mr. Slootsky is a Bronze member of the Florida Workers Advocates, an “Eagle” member of the Florida Academy of Trial Lawyers, and has served as the co-chair of the workers’ compensation section for Broward County, Florida.

Understanding the Different Types of Mass Torts

When problems arise due to shoddy products or harmful practices, why should different people have to make the same claim over and over again for the same result?


We’ve written previous posts about defective products: hoverboards that explode into flames, Keurigs that cause severe burns, etc. These injuries happen all over the country, and hundreds of lawsuits seeking compensation from one company or product sounds exhausting and unnecessary.


Well, it turns out that they are. Our legal system has a way to cut down on the number of lawsuits and award fair compensation to those that were affected, and it’s called a “mass tort.”


What Exactly Is a Mass Tort?
