Car Accidents - Auto Accidents
A lawyer can collect damages for your family by proving that the guilty party was negligent. A person is negligent when he or she fails to act like an ordinary, reasonable person. And you know that ordinary, reasonable people don't drive while drunk, don't drive at excessive speeds, and don't ignore posted one-way road signs. We strive to ensure a family's economic security, and reimbursements for other economic loss.
We focus upon representing individuals who are the victims of auto accidents. Essentially, if a person has been involved in some kind of accident that causes a physical injury requiring compensation, we will provide whatever legal services are required.
Victims should not hesitate from filing a lawsuit for fear of filing a frivolous lawsuit. That's propaganda created by the insurance industry. Let your attorney, not an insurance agent, determine what's frivolous and when justice should be pursued.
In America, a jury makes a decision on damages after hearing all of the evidence. The jury award is designed to compensate the injury victim. A fundamental right of all Americans is a trial by jury, allowing our fellow citizens to hear our case and to make a decision. Do not give up any of your rights as a citizen!
It is critical that you seek legal help quickly, as Florida Statute of limitations limit the length of time you have to file a lawsuit. If you fail to file a lawsuit within that time period you may forever be denied the justice due you. If you have been injured in a motor vehicle crash and believe that you have a case, please contact us immediately.

We are dedicated to representing individuals and families who have suffered catastrophic losses as a result of injuries, disabilities and death. WE ARE THE LAWYERS WHO CARE. THE LAWYERS WHO WIN.

Even a highly skilled defensive driver cannot avoid an accident caused by the negligent act of another. That's why everyone needs to be prepared to do what is necessary to protect themselves if an accident occurs. And the odds are high because every year in the United States more than 20 million accidents are recorded.
In fact, every 14 minutes in the U.S. someone is killed in a motor vehicle crash. Car accidents are the leading cause of death among teenagers and for people between the ages of 6 and 27. Death and serious injury are more likely to occur when large trucks are involved in a collision.
If you are involved in a serious accident you should talk to as attorney about your legal rights before talking with the other driver's insurance company. Do not settle for less than what you deserve by signing the wrong papers.
The accident itself is only the first trauma in a series of draining emotional experiences that will be faced by the victim and family members. As a victim, you and your family face most of the same results - funeral costs or mounting medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and expensive vehicle repairs. In cases of the death of the family's primary wage earner and provider, insurance will pay for the funeral and maybe enough income to support the family for a couple of years. But what about your family's economic future and security?
The victim should act to protect legal rights beginning with the day the accident occurred. That's why you should talk to an attorney at Glass Law Group, PA, immediately after any accident that results in a serious personal injury.
After an Automobile Accident
After an automobile accident, protect yourself by taking the following steps:
- File an accident report with the local city police department or Florida State Police.
- Take photographs of the accident scene, automobiles, and your injuries.
- If there are any witnesses, obtain his or her name, address, and telephone number.
- Immediately obtain medical treatment for your injuries. Tell the medical professional all of the injuries sustained.
- Keep a separate log about your injuries.
- In your log, begin and continue to keep detailed notes about other financial losses, such as wage losses. List the days or weeks off work.
- Contact an attorney to discuss your case before talking to the insurance company adjuster.
Do not discuss your case with any other person except your physicians and attorneys!
