Robert Sparks Named “10 Best Attorneys” - Client Satisfaction, Personal Injury
Posted By Givens Givens Sparks || Jun 10, 2019
Givens Givens Sparks managing partner, Robert Sparks, has been named to the 2019 list of '10 Best Attorneys’ for Client Satisfaction by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys.
In order to be eligible for this recognition, an attorney is formally nominated by the Institute, a client and/or a fellow attorney, and must show a record of professional achievement and a high degree of success, accompanied by an impeccable client satisfaction rating.
As managing partner and lead trial attorney for the personal injury division of his firm, Sparks has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of his clients in both state and federal courts, including a high-profile injury case that resulted in the highest single accident award in Hillsborough County history and the 62nd highest jury verdict nationwide in that year.
In 2018, Sparks recovered a confidential settlement for an elderly woman who was severely injured on the property of an entertainment venue. The settlement was reached the Friday before a jury trial was set to begin, and after Sparks and his co-counsel, Christopher Codling, had litigated the negligence case for more than three years while the venue ownership fought the victim’s claims. Also last year, Sparks litigated confidential policy limit insurance settlements for two clients who were injured when the car they were passengers in was hit by a driver who ran a red light. Both passengers suffered multiple injuries in the incident, including brain injuries, neck, back and shoulder injuries.
This year, Sparks will continue to pursue a pedestrian injury case in which his client suffered a closed head injury after being hit by a vehicle as she attempted to cross an intersection at a crosswalk in the south shore area of Hillsborough County.
