Gainesville Car Accident Attorney
When a serious vehicle accident occurs it is crucial to get an experienced accident attorney involved in your case as quickly as possible to interview eyewitnesses, investigate the scene and gather evidence to support your case. Before you talk to your insurance company, contact the Gainesville, Florida, law office of Terence J. Kann, P.A.
I have established a track record of success in litigating car accident cases. For example, in the case of Bush Leasing, Inc. v. Gallo, the plaintiff, Dr. Gallo, was badly injured when he turned left into the defendant’s path. I proved that the defendant was speeding, weaving and driving under the influence of alcohol. Despite the fact that Dr. Gallo was earning more at the time of the trial than he had prior to his injury, I was able to establish a significant loss of earning capacity due to an impairment of his higher cognitive functions and short term memory. Dr. Gallo was awarded $1 million.
North Florida Motorcycle and Scooter Accident Injury Attorney
Vehicle accidents involving motorcycles and scooters often result in serious injuries to the rider due to the fact that they have little or no bodily protection. Sustained injuries can range from road rash and broken bones to head and brain injuries or even death. Accident victims may find themselves looking at long-term medical treatment, in addition to lost work time. If death resulted from the injuries, the victim’s family has not only lost a loved one, but possibly the breadwinner who supported the family financially. Whatever the case, you should know your rights and what you are entitled to, to aid in recovering and moving forward with your life.
