Tavernier Car Accident Lawyer

Our Tavernier car accident lawyers at Gerson & Schwartz P.A. are here to represent you if you were injured in a crash in Tavernier, FL, or lost a loved one in a fatal collision. Once you contact us about your circumstances, we will investigate the crash. We will gather as much as evidence as possible to determine who was at fault for the collision and who is liable for compensating you for your injuries or loss. In many cases, the liable party may be the at-fault driver. However, the person liable for your injuries may not be the driver, particularly if the negligent driver was employed and working at the time or in another person’s car.

Whatever your circumstances, we will determine all relevant insurance policies and begin the insurance claim process. We will handle all communications with the insurance adjuster, and we will ensure that insurer receives all necessary proof of the policyholder’s liability and your injuries. If your insurance claim is approved, then we will strive to negotiate a full and fair settlement as quickly as possible.

If there is no insurance coverage, the insurer denies your claim, or settlement negotiations break down, then we may recommend filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim in Monroe County. We are not afraid to fight for your right to compensation in court.

Tavernier, FL

Tavernier is a census-designated place and an unincorporated community on Key Largo—the largest island in the Florida Keys. The area has a population of more than 2,000 people. It is known for being a great vacation spot. People come from all around the U.S. and world to scuba dive, snorkel, paddleboard, kayak, sail, and enjoy water sports off Tavernier’s shores.

To get to Tavernier, or to travel between the community and mainland Florida, everyone has to drive on U.S. Highway 1, which is better known as the Overseas Highway. Because this is the main thoroughfare through Key Largo and Tavernier, the highway sees a great deal of traffic. When tourism swells the population of the island for a few months each year, traffic congestion worsens, as does the risk of a crash.

If you were in a crash in Tavernier, whether you live in the Florida Keys or were visiting, you should contact our Tavernier car accident attorneys as soon as possible. We will help you pursue fair compensation for your physical, psychological, and financial injuries.
