Automobile and Truck Accident Injury Attorney in Jacksonville Beach, Florida
If you have been injured in a Florida motor vehicle accident due to the fault of another, you are entitled to compensation for the harm you have suffered.
At The Brockwell Firm we ensure you receive it. We assist in getting your car repaired or replaced, negotiate a recovery from an insurer and — if necessary — litigate on your behalf.
The aftermath of an auto accident can be emotionally stressful. Victims often are uncertain about what steps to take — and even about whether they are entitled to compensation, when they fear they have contributed to an accident themselves.
Attorney Heath Brockwell explains your rights to you and protects your claim to a full recovery by:
- Ensuring that you receive prompt medical attention — both for your own welfare and because without it an insurer may claim you were not injured or suffered your injury at another time.
- Preserving evidence of the accident — witness statements, photographs and records that otherwise might go missed or lost.
- Investigating the causes of the accident and identifying all legally liable parties — including persons apart from the driver of the other car.
- Presenting your claim most persuasively to the insurer — for fastest satisfaction of your claim.
Heath Brockwell formerly represented major insurance companies. Today he exclusively represents plaintiffs and has won major court awards against insurers. Having his experience on your side makes sure the insurance company will negotiate seriously and assures you that your rights will be fully protected.
Truck accident injuries
Accidents involving commercial trucks are much more complex, both legally and factually, than car accidents.
Many special regulations apply to trucking companies — regarding record keeping, driver qualifications, safety inspections, and other matters.
More potential defendants exist — possibly including the operator trucking company, owner of a leased truck, truck parts suppliers and repair firms, shippers of cargo and more.
More possible causes of an accident can exist — such as dangerous or negligently loaded cargo and dangerous demands made on drivers.
All this makes it vital in a truck accident injury case to be represented by an experienced truck accident attorney who knows how these complications affect your claim.
Why consult with an attorney quickly
To protect your rights, meet with an attorney as soon as possible after an accident. Injuries suffered in an auto accident often become apparent only some time later. But if you decide to wait and see before protecting your rights, you may compromise them. A late medical examination may be unpersuasive, witnesses may disappear and evidence can be lost.
Moreover, if you try to make a claim with an insurer on your own, you will be an amateur negotiating with professionals and may inadvertently make admissions of fault or other mistakes that compromise your claim.
Learn your legal options right away. Most accident injury claims are settled without a trial. Having your claim handled by an experienced Florida vehicle accident attorney ensures that it is filed most effectively, with the best chance of being settled fairly and quickly.
