Dickinson & Gibbons, P.A. has extensive experience in representing businesses and individuals in cases involving motor vehicle negligence, personal injury, wrongful death and property damage as a result of motor vehicle accidents.
Our Motor Vehicle Negligence Attorneys have collectively tried several hundred of these cases to jury verdict, and our motor vehicle negligence attorneys have a keen understanding of the forces that drive car accident litigation.
Florida Auto Accidents Resulting From Negligence
Thousands of car accidents occur every day in the United States. According to the National Transportation Safety Board, collisions result in more than 44,000 deaths and nearly 3 million moderate to serious injuries annually. The unfortunate truth is that most traffic accidents are preventable - they are a result of negligent actions or inactions. At Dickinson & Gibbons, our Florida auto accident attorneys regularly work with clients seriously injured in car collisions caused by any of the following:
- Disregarding speed limits or other road signs
- Using a mobile phone or other electronic device while driving
- Other distractions, such as reading, eating or drinking, or passengers
- Driving while under the influence of alcohol or controlled or illegal substances
When accidents occur due to these or other dangerous behaviors, it is important to talk to a skilled Florida injury attorney who can fully explain options and offer support through all phases of litigation, including trial. This goes for both the defendant accused of negligence, as well as a party that is injured as a result of another driver's behavior.
How We Can Help You
Consulting with an experienced Florida auto accident attorney is beneficial for several reasons. As experienced trial attorneys with true compassion for victims of negligence, we understand how to best support our clients while aggressively and efficiently advocating for their rights, whether they are accused of causing an accident or they are the party injured as a result of another driver’s negligence. We are well qualified to aid clients in any and all of the following:
- Communicating with insurance companies and carefully reviewing any settlement offers

- Establishing fault in the accident and deciding whether it makes sense to initiate a case
- Filing the necessary paperwork to obtain medical coverage and income assistance when necessary
- Representing clients to the courts, insurance representatives and other parties involved in a trial
When An Auto Accident Results in Death
Sadly, not everyone survives car accidents. Motor vehicle negligence cases resulting in death impact far more than the unfortunate party that did not survive. They touch the lives of the surviving driver and his family, family members of the deceased driver, employers and businesses, insurers of both parties involved in the accident, and eyewitnesses who may be called upon to testify in legal proceedings.
Sometimes, they involve additional drivers who may have contributed to the motor vehicle accident and unfortunate death. Wrongful Death cases pose unique challenges to lawyers on both the claimant and defendant's side–creating significant emotional challenges and complex legal issues.
The Motor Vehicle Negligence Practice Group at Dickinson & Gibbons has the experience and understanding to help clients navigate through this complicated landscape to achieve the most favorable resolution in this most unfavorable of circumstances.
