Gainesville, Florida, is home to the University of Florida. The population of Gainesville, Florida, in 2020 was 141,085.
What many people in Gainesville, Florida, may not know is that according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), the leading cause of death in the United States for those between ages one and 44 is unintentional injury. And according to the CDC the 2019 cost of unintentional injuries in the United States was $4.2 trillion.
Even one serious injury can alter your life forever. If you have been injured in a car crash, on an unsafe property, or due to a violent crime, research from Harvard University shows you are at risk of financial peril – even if you have health insurance.
And if you are injured, you may have a number of questions about what to do next.
For example, how much is your case worth?
Who pays what?
If you have health insurance, what portion of the medical bills do they pay?
Does your car insurance pay anything?
Does anyone else's insurance policy pay anything?
An injury can be a stressful and anxiety-inducing time for anyone. Beacon Legal PLLC seeks to be a light, guiding you through what may be one of the most stressful seasons of your life.

Beacon Legal PLLC has two goals: (1) help people who have been injured avoid financial peril and (2) change the way people view the legal industry, for the better.
One day, while working a summer job in a hot welding shop in Pensacola, Florida, Landon's co-worker (and friend) began showing signs of a stroke. Landon and his friend arrived at the emergency room. They stood at the front counter, a wall of plexiglass between the two friends and the hospital employee at the intake counter.
The friend's mouth was sagging to one side. Urine soiled the pant leg. The friend was a kind, joyful man. But now he couldn't speak clearly. The friend's eyes were bloodshot from a long day's work, as usual. But the eyes were different now. They were not cheery. The eyes were crying for help. Scared at the obvious damage occurring to the brain.
Instead of providing immediate assistance, the hospital employee told the friend and Landon to sit down in the waiting room. Really? Yes. Landon and his friend were upset and shocked. But they just followed the orders. What else were they going to do? This failure to speak-up would haunt Landon for quite some time.
After roughly fifteen minutes, a nurse finally called Landon and his friend to the back. The nurse then derided the friend for not coming in sooner. "Every minute matters with strokes," the nurse said.
What occurred in the waiting room was an obvious injustice on many levels. The takeaway for Landon was, Rules were likely broken by the hospital. But if one doesn't know the rules or laws, it's more difficult to object when they are broken. From this experience and others, Landon decided he wanted to learn to practice law, so he and his clients would not have to "sit down" ever again.
