Car Accident Victims Need Quality Representation

About Attorney Michael C. George

Attorney Michael C. George has spent the better part of the last 20 years fighting to secure compensation for victims of car accidents in and around Gainesville. A Florida native, Michael exclusively represents clients who have suffered preventable injuries because of someone else's careless, reckless, or intentionally-harmful actions. In the past few years alone, he and his firm have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for his clients through settlements and jury verdicts.

 

Gainesville Car Accident Victims Deserve Compensation

No one asks to get injured in a car crash. It just happens, and in a heartbeat, it turns peoples' lives upside down. They spend time in the hospital. They miss work or school. They lose time with friends and family. They struggle with the most basic daily activities. They endure extreme and chronic pain.

Injuries and losses resulting from a car crash caused by someone's wrongful actions are especially hard to bear; fortunately victims of a wreck caused by someone's dangerous decisions often have rights that allow them to receive financial compensation.

Still, getting paid the money you deserve for injuries sustained from an automobile accident in Gainesville rarely happens automatically. Many Floridians carry personal injury protection (PIP) insurance that covers them against some of their injuries and missed time at work or school after a crash. However, PIP insurance rarely covers the full amount of costs inflicted by serious car accident injuries.

You need the services of an experienced car accident injury lawyer in Gainesville. Michael George goes to work for crash victims whose PIP coverage has fallen short of the money they need to regain their health and rebuild their lives. He takes action to secure maximum payment from those responsible for a client's injuries and losses.

 

Liability for Car Accidents in Gainesville

Who does Michael pursue for the payment? It depends on the circumstances. However, in many cases, a car accident results from the careless, reckless, or intentionally-harmful actions of others. Below are just a few examples of who might have legal liability for causing harm in a car accident in Gainesville. Call Michael C. George at (800) 787-6445 to learn who might owe you damages for your suffering.

Another Driver

Errors and misconduct by someone behind the wheel of a motor vehicle cause the majority of Florida car accidents. A legal action holds those drivers, and their own auto liability insurance, financially accountable for the harm done in a crash.

A Driver's Employer

Under Florida law, employers must take responsibility for their employees' actions in most cases. A driver who causes a crash while working often saddles his employer with legal liability to crash victims.

An Automotive Manufacturer

Companies that make cars and car parts have a duty to the public not to sell defective products that pose an unreasonably dangerous risk of failing and causing an accident. In a legal action, an attorney can often hold a manufacturer strictly liable for crash injuries and losses caused by a defective part, even if the manufacturer did not know it had sold a dangerous product.

A Road Department

Local and state governments should put our tax dollars to work, in part, to design, build, and maintain roads in safe condition for all motorists. A crash resulting from a dangerous road condition can put a government agency on the hook for damages, so long as the victim hires a skilled attorney to pursue a claim.

Damages for Gainesville Car Accident Injuries

Gainesville crash victims often need substantial financial help, as soon as possible. Bills pile up after an accident. Victims face mounting expenses they never planned-for, and fall further-and-further behind because injuries keep them out of work.

No lawyer can guarantee that taking legal action will get a victim back on track financially. However, in many cases, Michael C. George's services can secure significant compensation that helps Gainesville accident victims and their families pay for:

  • Medical expenses that insurance does not cover;
  • Non-medical expenses that victims would not have had, were it not for the accident and their injuries;
  • Lost wages, past and future, resulting from missing work because of a crash injury or long-term disability; and
  • Pain, suffering, and diminished quality of life because of the harm the accident caused.

The amount of money, if any, a victim can recover for crash injuries and losses varies. However, it usually takes the know-how and insight of an experienced Gainesville car accident lawyer like Michael C. George to calculate and obtain the maximum payment available under Florida law.

What to Do After a Gainesville Car Accident

People often ask Michael what they should do after a Gainesville-area crash harms them or a loved one. Every situation is different, of course, but Michael usually tells them that following these tips could help protect their rights:

  • Seek immediate medical care. This is the top priority. Always see a doctor after you get into a Gainesville car accident, even if you feel "ok." Many severe injuries do not show immediate symptoms. Either go to the emergency room or visit a doctor within 24 hours afterwards to protect your health and identify any injuries for which you deserve compensation.
  • Collect evidence, if possible. Only if it is safe to do so, take photographs or video of the accident scene with your phone, preferably before first responders show up. Also collect names and contact information for everyone involved in the crash or who witnessed it.
  • Beware insurance companies. Never accept an unsolicited offer to "settle" from someone else's insurance company. The amount offered will fall short of what you deserve.
  • Contact an experienced Gainesville car accident lawyer as soon as possible. The sooner you have a lawyer like Michael C. George working for you, the better your chances of recovering the full compensation you need and deserve.
