When Someone Hits And Hurts You In A Car Crash
Accidents happen every day. An accident is something that happens that no one could see coming and no one could do anything about. It’s different from a crash. A crash happens because someone is either doing something they should not or not doing something they should.
As the principal at my firm, George C. Kezemides, P.A., I work one-on-one with my clients to help them understand both negligence and liability. As a former prosecutor and an attorney who has years of experience in insurance defense, I can build a strong case.
What Are Negligence And Liability?
Negligence does not mean a person set out to cause a crash. It just means that they did something to cause it. They are liable if they are careless or intentionally not following the rules – texting, drinking or speeding. A driver is liable when they do something any reasonable person would know is not safe to do.
Type Of Vehicle Accident Cases I Take
Unfortunately, a negligent driver can cause many different types of crashes. I have a broad base of experience with Florida auto accidents. I believe I have deeper insight than many other attorneys when it comes to crashes, due to my extensive knowledge of trials, as both a prosecutor and an insurance defense attorney.
I can assist with:
- Semitruck and delivery van crashes
- Vehicle vs bicycle injuries
- Motorcycle collisions
- Pedestrians being struck by vehicles
- Dram shop law cases where a patron was overserved and then got into a vehicle and drove
The other party will likely have savvy insurance company attorneys to represent them. It seems only fair that you should too. Having been on the side of the insurer, I understand their tactics and motives. I also understand what they cannot do, and where the holes in their defense lie.
