Maximizing Attention Maximizing Recovery
Ted Babbitt is an award-winning West Palm Beach Florida personal injury lawyer. He is a shareholder at Searcy Denney Scarola Barnhart & Shipley. Decades ago, soon after he founded Babbitt & Johnson P.A. Ted became the first attorney in Palm Beach County to obtain a million-dollar verdict in a personal injury matter. That got the client the relief they deserved - and it put Babbitt on the map. In the years that followed, he's won numerous multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements, in matters including medical malpractice, auto accidents, product liability, drug litigation, commercial litigation, and other mass tort and personal injury matters. He's obtained some of the largest recoveries ever seen in Florida - and helped his clients out of difficult times.
Since that first memorable win at Babbitt & Johnson P.A., Ted Babbitt's reputation and track record grew, but one thing remained the same: his commitment to each client. He handled every case himself; never farming out work to a less experienced lawyer - and he took on cases only after careful consideration and investigation. That let him devote the resources each case needed - and each victory demanded. Other lawyers are quick to settle because that's the easiest way for them to move on. Babbitt went all the way to trial because that's the only way clients can move on. And that's what makes Ted a different sort of lawyer. Your best interests get Ted's best efforts.
