Student-athletes train to be warriors on the field. But tragedies and injuries can occur on those same fields due to negligence. As a result, victims and families sometimes need a warrior in the courtroom. Steve Yerrid, founder of The Yerrid Law Firm, P.A. has repeatedly proven to be that warrior. For decades, he and his firm have effectuated improved safety protocols and procedures in a number of areas and many are still making a difference.
Yerrid’s 40-year career has been highlighted by record-setting verdicts and successful resolutions in countless cases involving catastrophic injury and death, medical malpractice, product liability, maritime disasters, and on occasion, commercial litigation. Most recently, much of his work has been in the area of student-athlete safety and has demonstrated the same results; Yerrid’s advocacy has greatly influenced safety guidelines and set precedents for high school and college athletic programs in Florida, as well as nationally.
