Gainesville, FL Accident Attorneys

We understand that following an accident, injury victims are often overcome by pain and stress. Handling phone calls from the insurance company while you are distraught and injured makes the situation far less manageable.  Further, the information you provide at this early stage can greatly impact your later recovery.

At Warner, Sechrest, & Butts, P.A., we deal with the insurer so you don’t have to.  Our law firm has years of experience in the art of successfully negotiating an optimal settlement with the insurer, if this is the route you wish to take.  We will ensure your rights are fully protected from the sometimes overreaching insurer, allowing you to get back to what matters most—your full recovery.

Why You Need a Personal Injury Attorney

Some accident victims, particularly those involved in automobile accidents, believe they can handle their injury or loss of property claim without the assistance of a qualified personal injury attorney.  These individuals often end up quickly confused and frustrated by the insurance claims process, and most end up settling for far less than their case could have been worth.  These accident victims will experience the heartache of uncovered medical expenses, lost wages, and ongoing disability.

The following is a list of a few reasons why accident victims, including victims of car, truck, and motorcycle accidents, require the assistance of a knowledgeable Gainesville personal injury lawyer:

  • The insurance company does not have your best interests in mind—insurers have the sole goal of providing you with as little compensation as possible.  Initial settlement offers will be for far less than your claim in worth, and are often made before the full extent of your injuries or losses is even evident.  A skilled attorney will advocate on your behalf and zealously protect your best interests when no one else is.
  • You may not fully understand all of your potential damages—accident victims, whether it be car, truck and motorcycle or slip and falls and medical malpractice, may be entitled to a wide variety of potential damages.  These include: current and future medical expenses (prescription drug costs and mileage reimbursement may be sought as well), lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of earning capacity, mental anguish, and loss of consortium.  Family members of deceased loved ones can pursue a host of damages through a wrongful death action.  An experienced personal injury attorney will thoroughly examine all of your losses to explore and pursue all potential avenues for recovery.
  • Proving liability can be complex—even with favorable police reports or witness accounts, proving another individual, whether it be a driver, property owner, or doctor, acted negligently can be difficult.  There are numerous elements involved in winning a successful personal injury suit and your best chance of victory is through the assistance of a skilled personal injury attorney with extensive knowledge of Florida statutes and cases.
