About Dana Brooks

Personal injury attorney Dana Brooks is a co-founder of Fasig | Brooks in Tallahassee, Florida.

Why Dana became a lawyer. Ever since Dana was a child she has helped people stand up for themselves. “I’ve always hated bullying and since no one seemed to bully me, I figured I’d step in for others who weren’t so lucky. My natural advocacy is what eventually led me to become a trial lawyer.”

Before law school, Dana served as a clinical social worker and a family law mediator. “Although counseling people through difficult times and helping families negotiate their problems has obvious value, the advocacy piece was missing for me. I still felt like I wanted to stand up for people who were struggling with how to do that for themselves. The law provides me that opportunity.”

What drew Dana to the practice of personal injury? “I have always worked in a helping profession which is ultimately what personal injury law is all about – helping people overcome health and financial adversity they’ve experienced through no fault of their own and use that setback to build their power and actually come back stronger than they were before their injury.”

Dana’s philosophy for the practice of personal injury. Dana believes a good personal injury attorney must be as accessible as possible to as many people as possible. She holds herself out as someone clients can call about any legal question. “If I don’t know the answer, I’ll find it out or put them in touch with someone I know and trust who can help.”

The highlight of Dana’s day. “It’s the clients. Seeing the positive changes they’re able to make in their lives by taking the tragedy of a personal injury and turning it into an opportunity for growth. I’ve seen clients break the bonds of multi-generational poverty, become first-time homeowners, and send their children to college as a result of hiring us to handle their personal injury legal claims.”

Why Dana decided to launch her own firm. Dana knew that she and her partner, Jimmy Fasig, could build a better law firm. They purchased a 30-plus year old law firm they had come up in and revamped it into a cutting edge, state-of-the-art, client service based law practice.

“We have a primarily horizontal organizational structure where every person is an A+ player and an integral part of the team. Our number one goal is to create raving fans who consider us their attorneys for life.”

Dana in the community. Dana regularly speaks for various bar associations on branding and marketing for attorneys, managing work/life balance, and working with millennials in the workplace.

“I am often asked to speak about my book, ‘Functional Feminism: An Apolitical Guide to Women’s Empowerment.’” She also writes a guest legal column in the Tallahassee Women’s Magazine and was named one of the 25 Women You Need to Know by the Tallahassee Democrat.

She has received numerous honors for her charitable work and contributions across North Florida. Her personal mission is to promote and protect women and girls and she focuses her nonprofit work on organizations that further those goals.

Dana outside the office. Dana enjoys travel for business and for pleasure. “I know what I like and what I know so I’m always looking to learn that about other people. You can almost always find me on the water or enjoying the company of family and friends along with my two little dogs, Bruiser and Booker T.”

What Is a Personal Injury Attorney in Tallahassee?

As you go about your daily routine, it's likely you will come across scenarios where you could suffer an injury. Maybe you are grocery shopping, dining at your favorite restaurant, or driving in your car. A personal injury lawyer in Tallahassee represents those who have been injured because of another party's carelessness, negligence, or willful disregard of others. These wrongful acts are more formally referred to as torts. When you suffer harm as a result of another party, you shouldn't have to shoulder the financial burden which often accompanies an injury because of medical expenses and lost wages. A licensed Tallahassee personal injury attorney can help you seek the compensation you deserve in civil court.

Although personal injury attorneys in Tallahassee deal with tort law, they often specialize in one or more areas. The following list is not exhaustive but includes three broad types of cases personal injury lawyers handle on a day-to-day basis.

Traffic Accident Injury Cases

Each year, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates more than six million traffic collisions are reported to law enforcement, including more than 35,000 fatal crashes, and about 2.5 million injuries. A skilled attorney can help investigate your accident and build a strong case against the defense to hold at-fault drivers accountable. Traffic accidents can include truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, and pedestrian accidents. When high speeds are involved, victims who are lucky enough to live through an accident, potentially face lifelong complications.

Premises Liability Injury Cases

In all 50 U.S. states, property owners have the legal obligation to maintain a safe environment for those who visit their business and home. Although exact laws vary from state to state, when a property owner fails to uphold his legal obligation and someone suffers an injury, courts often find the owner liable for damages in civil court. Premises liability accidents include a wide variety of accidents based on location and the type of injury. Victims might get injured at a swimming pool, a theme park, on an elevator, at a shopping mall, and many other locations. The most common type of premises liability accident is a slip-and-fall injury or a trip-and-fall injury. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries, besides traffic accidents, is unintentional falls.

Product Liability Injury Cases

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) records and maintains millions of complaints of injuries caused by defective products each year. A defective product might have a manufacturing defect, a design defect, or a marketing defect, which occurs when companies don't warn consumers of dangerous products or provide proper instructions. When a known or unknown defect causes injury to a consumer, courts can hold any party in the product's chain of distribution liable for damages. The CPSC is concerned with all types of household items, sports equipment, toxic and flammable chemicals, toys, and much more, but they do not serve as a watchdog for the automotive industry or the pharmaceutical. Defective airbags and defective tires have been a common cause of injury or death, as well as dangerous drugs.

Finding the best Tallahassee personal injury lawyer can be tough, but lucky for you we did the legwork and found the top personal injury lawyer in Tallahassee.
