LAKEWOOD RANCH FL - FHP announced four people were injured after being involved in a car accident that took place Thursday afternoon on University Parkway at Lakewood Ranch Boulevard.

The crash happened as a 77-year-old man from Palmetto was driving a sedan westbound in the left turn lane of University Parkway at the intersection with Lakewood Ranch Boulevard during a red turn arrow light.

As the car was approaching the stoplight, a 40-year-old man from Sarasota was driving a pickup truck towing a trailer with a 37-year-old male passenger from Bradenton Florida, and another male passenger of un-stated age heading eastbound in the center lane of University Parkway approaching the intersection at Lakewood Ranch Blvd., at a green light.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
