Florida Accident and Injury Attorney

As a former insurance company lawyer, Mr. Hutson understands how these companies evaluate cases. And while most cases settle short of trial, we are ready to go to jury trial if necessary.

In an auto personal injury matter, under recent changes to Florida law, you must seek qualified medical treatment within 14 days of your injury, or else you may be disqualified from receiving valuable PIP benefits (section 627.736, Fla. Stat.)

Call us for a free consultation about your injury case today.

We handle the following types of cases involving death or serious bodily injury: 

  • Auto negligence

  • Trucking cases

  • Premises liability

  • Bicycle accidents

  • Motorcycle accidents

  • Pedestrian accidents

  • Product defect

Don't speak to the other side's insurance professional without knowing your rights, and never sign anything before speaking to your own lawyer.

In injury cases, if there is no recovery, you owe us no fee or costs.
