Trucking accidents, car or motorcycle crashes, and even pedestrian-related issues occur every day around our great nation. Yes, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, and other areas around southwest Florida are included in the equation. Driving services like Uber and Lyft, tourists, and most of us accomplishing our everyday commute, add to increased traffic on the roadways. Also, more and more shoppers are buying things online these days, which means an increased presence of mail trucks and package delivering companies on the streets as well. Always practice safe driving, and with any luck, you will never need an accident attorney.
Of course, we can not forget the expanded holiday traffic either. Family and friends will be coming into town for Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day. All of these factors increase the chances of an accident, and injuries will occur, regardless of what time of year it is. Negligent, reckless, or careless acts are often to blame for the mishaps, which usually result in a party seeking restitution for the wounds. Our accident attorney can help you through these troubling times by fighting for a fair settlement amount. We do everything in our power to get the results that clients deserve, and the team will be more than happy to assist you.

Cars pose enough of a danger to people, without adding fuel to the fire. Operating the machinery at a high rate of speed, regardless of its safety features, is a problem, and it is not uncommon for vehicles to become passed doing the speed limit as if they were sitting still.

We have an excellent reputation in the Florida court system, as well as with the insurance companies. What does this mean for our clients?
