We are a team of experienced, highly effective trial attorneys with more than a quarter century of name recognition among corporations and auto insurance providers operating in our service area. Insurers and individuals throughout Florida have relied on us to defend them in complex automobile litigation for more than 30 years. Our attorneys who practice in this area have handled hundreds of cases in recent years with estimated exposure ranging from small matters up to multimillion-dollar claims.
Our team represents clients in a full range of automobile litigation, from smaller incidents to complicated matters involving serious highway accidents resulting in death or permanent disability. Regardless of the complexity or monetary value, we bring the firm’s considerable resources to bear in all our cases. Our practice encompasses negligence, wrongful death, intentional misconduct, negligent entrustment, punitive damages, suspicions of fraud or excessive medical claims and products liability. We have longstanding relationships with accident reconstruction experts, medical experts, investigators, and other professionals to protect the interests of our clients. We advise clients as they sort through uninsured motorist (UM) and underinsured motorist (UIM) cases, including explaining the basic framework, helping to determine which UM policy takes priority in a multipolicy case and which settlements to pay in what order.
