Best Car Accident Lawyers in Florida

If you were seriously injured in a car crash, or your relative was the victim of a fatal collision, you will want to work with one of the best car accident lawyers in Florida at Gerson & Schwartz P.A. Our firm has represented accident and injury victims for more than 48 years. In our nearly five decades of practice, we have helped countless individuals and families pursue full and fair compensation for their injuries and losses.

We strongly believe in holding negligent drivers responsible for their conduct. Crash victims should not have to face the physical, emotional, and financial repercussions of a collision on their own. While an insurance claim or lawsuit will not make up for your physical and psychological injuries, or for your grief over losing a loved one, it can provide you with essential compensation.

Our veteran Florida car accident lawyers are at the top of their field. We know how to cut through the red tape, deal with insurers, and fight for you to receive just compensation. We also are experienced litigators, and we will not hesitate to take your case to court.

We Handle Rideshare, Vehicle Share, and Rental Car Accidents

Not all car accidents are between two person vehicles being drive by their rightful owners. Many collisions are more complex than that.

We routinely handle Uber, Lyft, and other rideshare accidents. We understand the complexities associated with an Uber or Lyft accident, including the nuanced insurance coverage for rideshare drivers and passenger victims. If you were injured in a crash with a Lyft or Uber, whether you were the rideshare driver, the rideshare passenger, or in another vehicle, give our best car accident lawyers in Florida a call.

We also handle claims involving rental vehicles, whether the driver rented the car from a traditional business or through a vehicle sharing website. If you were in a crash while in a rented vehicle, or you were struck by a driver in a rented car, contact us right away. These incidents can lead to complex insurance claims. In some cases, the rental car driver does not have the insurance they should. Or, there may be several insurance policies you can file a claim against.

We Handle Insurance Bad Faith Cases

Insurance companies are required to treat claimants fairly and uphold their policies. However, many insurance companies tow the line of what is and is not fair, and in some cases, clearly step over that line. We have worked with may car accident victims who were not treated appropriately by their own insurer or the at-fault party’s insurer.

One of the most common forms of insurance bad faith after a car accident is an insurer’s refusal to settle when there is a valid claim. If your insurance policy refuses to pay out, you should talk with us right away.

If the at-fault party’s insurer refuses to settle, we will take your case to court. We are not intimidated to litigate your car accident claim. If we win the court case, we will pursue the judgement from the at-fault driver. We also may recommend filing a claim against the insurer for their unlawful acts of bad faith.

We Handle Car Accident Wrongful Death Claims

If you lost a spouse, child, parent, or other relative in a fatal car crash, we recommend talking with our best car accident lawyers in Florida right away. If there is evidence that the deadly accident was due to another person’s carelessness, recklessness, or intentional misconduct, then we may recommend filing a wrongful death lawsuit.

Through a wrongful death lawsuit, close family members and the decedent’s estate can obtain compensation for certain damages, including medical costs, funeral and burial expenses, grief, emotional distress, loss of the decedent’s income, loss of decedent’s household services, and loss of decedent’s companionship, society, and love.

A big shout out to Nick Gerson & Schwartz for helping me navigate my care after a fall against a major cruise ship. They took care of me all along the way and saw me through such a very hard time. I highly recommend their firm if you are looking for a firm that truly cares about you. 5 Stars all the way! Janna Wright, Google User
Mr Nick Gerson has been extremely attentive (even on weekends!) and has been more than willing to take time to answer all my questions. His receptionist (Suzanne) and paralegal (Carla) are courteous, friendly and highly efficient in all matters. Mr Gerson's diligence lead to a very quick resolution of my case. I am more than pleased to recommend you seek him as your attorney. You will not regret you did!! G.I.B.
Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side. I have appreciation for the good service that was given to me and my situation. Thanks. Cales & Mr. Hyde (Carlos Andrés García Jiménez), Google User
