If you’ve been injured because another driver negligently sped up instead of stopping at an intersection or anywhere else on the road, you may have a claim. Florida law may allow you to seek compensation to cover your lost wages, car repair bills, hospital and medical treatment costs, and more. However, you may not get the full amount you’re entitled to just by filing an insurance claim.

Do yourself a favor and call him. Andy
I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
