Last year in Florida, there were nearly 400,000 motor vehicle crashes causing 250,000 injuries and over 3,000 deaths. In addition, 670 pedestrians, 550 motorcyclists, and 140 bicyclists were killed by cars in the Sunshine State.
These statistics are frightening, but they are just numbers. You are not a number. If you are one of the nearly half a million people injured in a Florida motor vehicle crash every year, the statistics do not matter to you. All that matters is getting the resources you need to recover from your injuries and other losses.
At Cullen & Hemphill, PLC, we understand that you are not a number. We know that you are a real person who has suffered real losses and that is how we treat you, starting with your first call to us. We take the time to listen to your story and to design a personalized plan of action to get you the recovery you deserve.
How We Handle Motor Vehicle Accidents
You may have already heard from the insurance company for the at-fault driver in your accident, but you should know that—no matter what they might say—they are not your friend and they do not have your best interests at heart when they try to make a quick settlement offer. When you hire us to represent you, however, we will fight to get you every penny you deserve. You can count on us to:
- Research the accident
- Talk to witnesses
- Inspect the scene
- Take photographs
- Hire experts
- Communicate with insurance companies
- Take your case to trial
We have purposely kept our practice small so that we can give each of our motor vehicle accident clients the time and attention their case deserves. We know you are suffering and we are here to help you recover for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. When you work with our experienced team, you can rest assured that we will fight for you like we would a member of our own family.
Cases We Accept
Our motor vehicle accident attorneys have represented clients in all kinds of accidents. Many of our clients were involved in a car crash with a negligent, careless, drunk, or distracted driver, but we also represent victims of:
- Car accidents
- Rental car wrecks
- RV accidents
- Motorcycle collisions
- Pedestrian accidents
- Bicycle crashes
- Commercial vehicle accidents
- Hit and run accidents
These kinds of accidents can lead to catastrophic injuries such as spinal cord damage and paralysis; traumatic brain injury and permanent brain damage; disk herniations; shoulder, neck, and knee injuries; and soft tissue injuries. Injuries like these can have a significant impact on your life and your ability to earn a living. Don’t risk losing more than you already have.
Motor Vehicle Wrongful Death Cases
As you read in the statistics above, thousands of people are killed in motor vehicle crashes each year in Florida. Often, surviving family members are entitled to damages from the at-fault driver to compensate them for their losses. At Cullen & Hemphill, PLC, we handle wrongful death claims with care and compassion. If you lost a loved one in a tragic car, motorcycle, bicycle, or pedestrian crash that was not their fault, contact us to find out if you could recover damages for:
- Medical and funeral expenses
- Mental and emotional pain and suffering
- Loss of companionship, guidance, and protection
- Loss of services and financial support provided by the deceased
Only certain family members can recover and there are time restrictions involved, so please talk to us as soon as possible after the loss of a loved one in a motor vehicle accident.
