Dave is a great man, very caring and attentive to his clients. I went to Dismuke law after having a horrible experience with another law firm. The way I have been treated since he took on my case years ago is far superior to my experience with any other law firm. I would highly recommend Dismuke law!- Erica C.
There is no praise high enough for Dave Dismuke.
There is no praise high enough for Dave Dismuke. I emailed a question to the website at 1:30 am and got a call back at 9 am... ON SUNDAY. He explained confusing court proceedings that lawyers already involved with the case would not discuss, reframed suspicious actions as benign mistakes and gave me practical advice on resolution, told me early I didn't need him but never once tried to get me off the phone (I talk a lot so that was heroic), answered every single question until I was done, and declined payment when I asked to reimburse him for his time (again, Sunday). I've screened and worked with a lot of law firms in the past very complicated year (personal injury, custody, probate, guardianship) -- some lawyers answered questions without impatience but none came close to Dave's knowledge, thoroughness, practicality, or kindness, and not one of them did it without payment, even for "free" consultations. Dave knows the area players (judges/lawyers), knows how things work and actually explains them, gives scenarios and examples, and volunteers ideas so you can make decisions and get moving. If you've already started calling lawyers, you may know that sense of bewilderment as you sort through what you were told and discover you still don't know what to do. You won't get that here. If people had character captions you'd see "Billable Hours" floating around many lawyers; Dave has "counselor" and "representative." Start here and save yourself some time.- HMP.
My experience with Dismuke Law was priceless.
My experience with Dismuke Law was priceless: when I met Dave, I knew I had a winner. He was very intelligent, professional and I knew this was a man who cared about his clients. I can not say enough good about this firm. I looked forward to our conferences, he would always update me on my case. If you have legal questions, Ask Dave. He is interested in putting as much as possible in his clients pockets. Thank you Dave.- Shirley H.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Being injured in an accident will leave you with many difficult questions. Dismuke Law is here to address these uncertainties, offering guidance when you need it most. For your convenience, we have compiled several frequently asked questions below, and we invite you to call our offices at 863-250-5050 any time to talk to a Lakeland personal injury attorney about your specific case.
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I’VE BEEN INJURED?
If you have been injured and you believe someone else is to blame, do not wait to seek medical attention. This will start the paper trail of your treatment and provide proof that you sustained injuries, and it will also be best for your health and well-being. We also recommend contacting an attorney as soon as possible, to discuss your potential right to compensation from the at-fault party.
WHO CAN BE HELD LIABLE FOR CAUSING MY INJURIES?
Individuals or business entities may be held legally responsible (liable) for causing injury through negligence or wrongdoing. To determine liability in your case, we will need to conduct a complete investigation into the matter to see what occurred and who is to blame. The first step is a free initial consultation with one of our Lakeland personal injury lawyers.
WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON CAUSES OF CAR ACCIDENTS?
Car accidents are most commonly caused by negligent driving behavior. Drunk driving, driving while distracted, speeding, reckless driving, and aggressive driving are all common causes of traffic accidents in Florida and across the U.S.
HOW DO I KNOW IF A PROPERTY OWNER PROVIDED A PROPER DUTY OF CARE IN MAINTAINING SAFE GROUNDS?
Property owners in Florida have a responsibility to visitors and guests to provide reasonably safe grounds, but this responsibility will vary depending on the type of property (such as a bank versus someone’s home) and the type of visitor (such as a customer versus a guest or even a trespasser). We can evaluate your case to see what level of care applies, and pursue a premises liability action if warranted.
WHAT TYPES OF CASES DOES YOUR FIRM HANDLE?
Dismuke Law primarily takes on cases involving car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian and bicycle accidents, bus accidents, wrongful death, legal malpractice, and more.
WILL I HAVE TO PAY UPFRONT COSTS FOR YOUR LEGAL SERVICES?
Our Lakeland injury lawyers work on contingency, which means you do not have to pay for our legal services unless we are successful in recovering a settlement or verdict on your behalf.
