Bad Things Like Personal Injury and Accidents Can Happen to Good People
Unfortunately, accidents happen every day in Florida. What is even more unfortunate is that they involve good people, just like you.
Your car is hit by an out of control truck on I-95 or I-4, rendering you seriously injured and unable to work.
Your Social Security application is denied even though you are unable to work due to a debilitating physical or mental condition like back problems, neck problems or depression.
Your employer refuses to be responsible for the accident you had at work or refuses to report it to its workers' compensation insurance company.
A car crashes into your motorcycle on Highway 100, Highway 20 or State Road 40 and you are left badly hurt and unable to pay your bills.
Knowing your legal rights is essential in order to avoid making decisions that could be harmful to your family, detrimental to your health, or financially devastating. When you are injured or disabled, you need to know where to turn for solid, straightforward advice from professionals you can trust.

Our knowledge and experience will help you make informed decisions involving your case and will greatly improve the chances for a successful outcome.
These are examples of cases that happen every day in Florida:
The Winter Haven News Chief reports three car accidents in Polk County over one weekend, each of which caused injuries to multiple passengers.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports a fatal motorcycle accident in Ormond Beach when a car failed to give the motorcyclist the right of way at an intersection.
The St. Petersburg Times reports that a man with a degenerative disc disease had his claim wrongfully denied by the Social Security Administration (SSA) in 2004 and was forced to go to court two years later in order to prove his case. In the interim, he has struggled to pay his rent and support his family.
At Johnson & Gilbert, we will ensure that you fully understand the workings of your case and that if warranted, it is pursued to the fullest extent of the law.

Unfortunately, injuries in motorcycle accidents are frequently, more severe than in a typical car accident. We see this far to often, especially during Daytona Beach Bike Week and Biketoberfest. Although many people come to our area to enjoy these events, as the number of attendees increases, sadly, so does the number of accidents and fatalities. We are committed to representing injured riders and family members who have lost a loved one.
Injuries at work can often have a drastic impact on your relationship with your employer and your ability to pay your bills while you recover. Unfortunately, this is often complicated by the workers' compensation insurance company's (or your employer's) denial of benefits. The law is complex and employer/carriers use this to its advantage. You may not always need a lawyer, but you do need to know your legal rights.
