The lawyers at Holland & Lamoureux, P.A. use their experience in handling accident cases to investigate every possible contributing cause of an accident to ensure that you will receive full compensation for your injuries. While we assist in finding the appropriate medical specialist to treat you and make arrangements with your medical care providers to wait for payment until your case is resolved through settlement or trial, you can concentrate on recovering from your injuries as our office takes over your case’s investigation.

Courts look to a number of factors in determining whether a driver was negligent. The law of negligence generally decides automobile accidents. A driver who drives unsafely, with willful and wanton disregard that his driving may cause an accident may also be liable for an accident caused by such intentional or reckless conduct.

Brandon Auto Accident Attorneys

Under the law of product liability, an automobile manufacturer or supplier may be responsible for injuries caused by a defect in the automobile, or a component of the automobile, as in the Firestone tire litigation. In another example, if a mechanic improperly repairs a vehicle that causes an accident, the mechanic and his repair shop may be liable for injuries sustained.

Poorly maintained roads and malfunctioning traffic control signals are other factors that can contribute to an accident. Serious accidents can be caused by improper design, maintenance, construction, signage, lighting, or other highway defects, as well as improper striping on the road’s passing lanes, a sharp obstruction or problem with the roadway that obstructs drivers’ vision, or poorly placed trees and utility poles.

Finally, if an accident is caused by an intoxicated driver, a bar or social host may be liable for damages sustained if they served an obviously intoxicated guest.

It is essential in all automobile accident cases that measures are taken to promptly preserve evidence, investigate the accident in question, and enable physicians or other expert witnesses to thoroughly evaluate any injuries.

Call the injury lawyers of Holland & Lamoureux, P.A. now at (813) 655-9069 if a loved one or you are a victim of an automobile accident.

The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to accept your case, we will work on a contingent fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if there is a monetary award or recovery of funds.

You may have a valid claim and be entitled to compensation for your injuries, but a lawsuit must be filed before the statute of limitations expires. Don’t delay.
