Car and Truck Accident Cases in Florida
Your best defense in an injury claim based on a traffic accident is to enlist the legal services of an attorney who is experienced in handling such claims. Insurance companies have their own legal staffs dedicated to helping them preserve their bottom line by paying out as little as possible in injury claims.

Such damages include all of your past and future medical expenses, loss of wages or earning capacity, pain, suffering, and more. Furthermore, in the event that the insurance company is not willing to provide a fair settlement, our firm can take your case to court in civil litigation. With a Board-Certified Civil Trial Lawyer on hand, we have the legal abilities needed and will work diligently and fight hard to achieve a successful verdict.

Being injured in a motorcycle accident can be a frightening and life-altering experience. Motorcyclists have a much higher rate of serious injury and death when involved in such an accident than do drivers or passengers in cars or trucks. Because a motorcyclist has little protection other than a helmet, when he or she is struck by another vehicle or hits the road or another object, the impact can lead to a wide range of injuries. These include road scrapes, cuts, bruises, soft tissue injury, torn ligaments, tendons, and muscles as well as multiple fractures, head injuries, internal injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Following a motorcycle accident, you may require short or long-term hospitalization, rehabilitative treatment, further surgeries, and more. Those who suffer catastrophic injuries may face permanent disability, requiring medical and personal assistance.
Having a tough, dedicated Tampa personal injury attorney in your corner following such an event can make all the difference in your future.

Motorcycle Accidents in Florida
Motorcycles are a popular form of transportation in the state of Florida. Motorcycle registrations have risen across the state and the nation in the past few decades. With this increase in motorcycle usage comes the higher risk for an accident. Unfortunately, many motorists fail to see motorcyclists, consider them road hazards or irritations, and don’t accord them the courtesy and space they deserve. If you should find yourself injured due to misconduct or negligence of another, we encourage you to contact us for a free consultation about your case.
Property owners, managers, and occupiers have a responsibility to provide a reasonably safe environment for those who enter their premises as visitors, patrons, customers, or invitees. When dangerous or unsafe conditions exist on their premises which lead to accidents in which visitors are injured, the property owner may be held liable for damages in an injury claim or lawsuit. These cases fall under premises liability and apply to both private and public premises, such as retail outlets, office buildings, movie theaters, and other places where the public congregate, both inside and outside the premises.
