Jacksonville Beach Firm Represents People Hurt in Auto Accidents

Proven Florida advocate also handles truck, motorcycle and bicycle claims

Auto, motorcycle and trucking accidents frequently result in injuries as well as the ensuing stress, emotional trauma and financial burdens that accompany them. It is for this reason that contacting an experienced auto accident attorney is imperative to your recovery process. Victims of auto, motorcycle and trucking accidents in Florida often question whether they are entitled to compensation or can even afford the costs of hiring an attorney. At my Jacksonville Beach firm, Bruce A. Gartner, P.A., my door is always open to auto accident victims. I know car crashes are traumatic events, and my mission is to guide you through the legal process so you obtain the compensation you need for the harm you’ve suffered. I also offer a free consultation to answer your questions and concerns so you can proceed with confidence in my ability to help.

Trustworthy attorney pursues fair compensation for crash victims

Approximately 400,000 auto accidents occur annually in Florida. Many of these cases don’t result in physical injury, but those that do can trigger excessive harm. With two decades of experience litigating personal injury and wrongful death cases, I have the ability to handle all types of vehicle accident litigation, such as cases involving:

  • Trucks — In truck accident matters, my firm investigates to see if regulations pertaining to large commercial vehicles and their operators were violated.
  • Motorcycles — Without the protection offered by a car or truck, motorcycle riders can face catastrophic injury when a driver doesn’t comply with the rules of the road.
  • SUVs — The high center of gravity of a sport-utility vehicle can make it prone to rollover accidents. After an SUV accident, I’ll take on negligent manufacturers as well as careless motorists.
  • Pedestrians — Drivers distracted by smart phones and other tech devices pose a danger to people walking on streets or sidewalks.

Starting with a free initial consultation, my firm will make every legal effort to secure the reimbursement you’re entitled to for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and emotional trauma.

Knowledgeable counselor advises on auto insurance issues

Dealing with an insurance company is often frustrating, especially when you’re relying on a fair resolution to meet your urgent financial needs. Though legislators are seeking to change the law, Florida has a no-fault auto insurance system, meaning that individuals who are hurt in car accidents usually must seek payment for medical expenses and lost wages from their own insurance company. However, in specially designated situations where the harm is severe, you might be able to bring an action against the motorist who caused the crash. Regardless of whether it is your carrier or the other driver’s insurance company, I will work diligently to maximize your settlement. When the other motorist lacks car insurance, I’ll outline your options under uninsured motorist coverage and help you decide if a lawsuit against the at-fault driver is worthwhile.

Important steps to take following a vehicular accident

If you are the victim of an accident, there are a few critical steps you can take following the incident that can greatly increase your likelihood of collecting proper compensation. In addition to contacting a qualified Jacksonville car accident lawyer immediately, you should take the following steps:

  • Call the police following the accident to ensure adequate reports and documentation of the event.
  • Seek medical help.
  • Refrain from discussing the accident with the other parties involved, particularly about who is at fault for the accident. Your attorney will handle these details for you.
  • Obtain information from the other driver(s) including full name, address, license number and insurance carrier.
  • Document the scene using a camera, cellphone or notepad sketch. If you can, include notes on the important details of the accident that you may forget later.

Whether your case stems from a rear-end collision, an SUV rollover, speeding, a distracted driver or a motorist who’s impaired by alcohol, I have the legal and practical knowledge to construct the most effective legal argument possible on your behalf.
