Best Auto Accident Attorney in Florida

If you ask any experienced auto accident lawyer, they will tell you that Florida routinely ranks among the worst states for car accidents. If you’ve suffered injuries due to the negligence of another driver, you may be entitled to compensation for damages such as:

  • Property damage
  • Medical bills
  • Income loss
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability
  • Wrongful death

However, it’s not always easy to prove your personal injury case to the insurance companies or in court (if it goes that far). Obtaining maximum compensation for your injuries usually requires a proven lawyer’s experience, knowledge, and relationships.

Working with a skilled auto accident attorney can help you understand your legal options, stand up for your rights, and ultimately, pursue maximum damages for your injuries.

Don’t wait until it’s too late to file a personal injury claim.

Do I Need an Accident Attorney in Florida?

Technically, you don’t need a car accident lawyer. However, pursuing a personal injury claim against multi-billion-dollar insurance companies alone is not usually recommended. That’s because insurance adjusters have tons of resources and high-powered attorneys on their side.

Their goal is not to make a fair offer. Contrarily, the insurance company has a vested interest in paying you the least amount of money possible or the least amount you are willing to accept). Negotiating a car accident claim without an experienced car accident attorney is like running without shoes; it’s possible, but it will probably hurt.

If your situation fits any of the following circumstances, it’s in your best interest to consult with an accident attorney:

  • You were in an accident (due to someone else’s fault) and suffered injuries due to the accident.
  • You suffered damages (i.e., property damage, physical injuries, etc.), and you want to receive maximum compensation.
  • You are not familiar with Florida car accident and insurance laws
  • You don’t have a lot of free time to pursue your car accident claim
  • You have a complex car accident case (i.e., truck accidents, multi-vehicle car accidents, etc.)
  • Insurance companies are not typically known for understanding or fairness when handling personal injury claims.

There are many well-documented instances of insurance companies using pressure tactics, refusing to pay claims, and making lowball offers. Hiring a proven auto accident attorney in Florida can be the difference between a successful personal injury claim and an unsuccessful claim.

How Can a Florida Car Accident Lawyer Help

At Schrier Law Group, our car accident lawyers work on a contingency basis. That means that you don’t pay us unless we win your case. With that in mind, it’s usually more costly not to hire an attorney than it is to hire one.

An experienced car accident attorney can be an asset when filing a personal injury claim in the following ways, but not limited to:

  • Offer advice based on an in-depth understanding of Florida auto accident laws and case law precedent
  • Investigate the car accident
  • Identify and interview eyewitnesses
  • Dealing with the insurance companies
  • Determining fault and proving damages
  • Calculating your damages
  • Filing accurate and timely paperwork
  • Negotiating
  • Taking your case to trial if the insurance companies don’t offer fair compensation

Every car accident case is unique. However, if you’ve suffered accident injuries or damages, you can be assured that an insurance adjuster will not take it easy on you. Working with an experienced car collision lawyer can help to ensure that you are fairly compensated, and your rights are protected.

Compensation Received by Resolved Cases for Florida Car Accident Victims

Car accident victims who suffer injuries are often concerned about property damages, medical bills, lost income, and more. Winning a personal injury case via settlement or trial can help pay for current and future damages suffered as a result of the accident. Learn more below.

Medical Bills

In many cases, medical bills start piling up immediately after the accident occurs. That can include ambulance fees, the cost of emergency medical care, rehabilitation, and much more. A few of the most common types of injuries sustained after a car accident include but are not limited to:

  • Broken bones
  • Head and brain injuries
  • Spinal injuries and other types of back injuries
  • Mental health injuries (i.e., PTSD, depression, anxiety, etc.)
  • Injuries to the face or neck

Income Loss

Serious injuries often require time away from work. In extreme cases, injuries resulting from an accident could lead to the loss of occupation. Working with an experienced auto accident lawyer can help you determine how much income you’ve lost and how much you stand to lose in the future.

Pain and suffering

Pain and suffering are essentially physical/emotional discomfort and stress resulting from a car collision. Under Florida auto accident laws, individuals injured as a result of a negligent car accident can sue for pain and suffering (as well as other non-economic damages).


Suppose you or a loved one suffers a permanent disability as a result of an auto accident. In that case, it could threaten your career, income earning potential, as well as personal life. An experienced auto accident attorney can help ensure you recover maximum damages.

Wrongful death

A wrongful death occurs when someone unintentionally kills someone as a result of negligence. If a family member or loved one suffered a wrongful death in a Florida car accident, you may be entitled to compensation.

Types of Auto Accident

Car accidents can occur at any time, any place, and to anyone. With that in mind, individuals eligible to pursue damages can be involved in many types of vehicle accidents. Learn more below.

Drunk/Under the Influence Driving

There are more than 5,000 alcohol-related traffic accidents in Florida every year. Individuals who get behind the wheel after drinking can be held both criminally and civilly liable. However, receiving maximum compensation for injuries caused by an alcohol-related accident often requires a skillful and determined auto accident attorney.

Distracted Driving

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are more than 3,000 distracted driving-related fatalities each year in the US. Distracted driving can include but is not limited to:

  • Texting and driving
  • Eating and driving
  • Handling radio, navigation, or other types of electronic devices
  • Talking to passengers

Drowsy Driving

Nearly 10 percent of all crashes involve observable symptoms of driver drowsiness. Some studies suggest that driving after being awake for more than 20 hours is equivalent to driving drunk. With that in mind, drowsy driving is not a viable excuse for reckless driving. Individuals who cause motor vehicle accidents due to tiredness may be liable for any damages, injuries, or deaths caused as a result.

Truck accident

Accidents involving commercial vehicles usually produce severe injuries (at minimum). With that in mind, pursuing compensation for injuries after a truck accident can be complex, frustrating, and lengthy. That’s especially true if you don’t hire an experienced car accident lawyer.

Motorcycle Accident

Florida routinely ranks in the top ten for motorcycle accidents and motorcycle fatalities. If you’ve suffered injuries in a car accident while riding your motorcycle, it’s in your best interest to consult with a proven car accident attorney as soon as possible.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrian accidents involving negligent drivers are more likely to result in severe injuries or death for the pedestrian. Establishing liability in pedestrian accidents can be challenging without the help of an attorney.

Rideshare Accidents

Rideshare accidents in Florida occur every day. Companies like Uber and Lyft offer robust insurance packages and coverages. However, it’s not always easy to determine fault or receive maximum compensation for injuries sustained in rideshare accidents. That’s because it often involves multiple disputing parties, drivers, passengers, and insurance companies.

Self Driving Car Accidents

Contrary to popular belief, self-driving cars are still more accident-prone than human drivers. However, proving fault in a self-driving car accident can be a complex process. Our attorneys understand the recent driverless car legislation passed in Florida and how personal injury claims apply.

What You Should Do Following a Car Accident

Building a strong personal injury case starts immediately after an accident occurs. If you’re involved in a car accident in Florida, it’s in your best interest to do the following:

  • Check on others involved in the accident (if possible)
  • Exchange identification and insurance information
  • Take plenty of pictures and videos of the car accident scene, property damages, and injuries suffered
  • Seek immediate medical attention
  • Contact the police
  • Contact an experienced auto accident lawyer to discuss your legal case

Florida is a no-fault state. That means that every driver must carry at least $10,000 in personal injury protection insurance (PIP). While PIP insurance covers medical damages up to a certain amount, it often isn’t enough to take care of every expense. An attorney can help you recover the compensation you’re owed.

Further, Florida has one of the highest percentages of uninsured drivers on the road. It can be difficult to receive compensation after an accident with an uninsured driver, but it’s possible. Contact Schrier Law Group to learn more.

I must say that Mr. Schrier was there when we needed immediate advice after my wife got rear-ended by an unlicensed speeding lunatic. We called a handful of attorneys in our area, but after waiting 2- 5 days they would drop her case. We found Mr Schrier online and he explained the pros/cons and he took the case. We waited patiently, and in time he was able to tracked down the actual owners of the car and get their auto insurance info!

Mr. Paul Schrier is by far the best attorney for the job! He is very responsive, knowledgeable, and very efficient. Despite my very busy schedule, he kept me informed throughout the process. I am very please with the outcome of my case. The customer service I received from the entire team has been amazing! Thank you all so much!

- Ms. Jean


Not only did I get a phenomenal attorney to represent me in my case, but I also got a step by step education on how the legal process actually worked. I was encouraged to ask questions and be an informed client. I was never treated like a case. I truly felt like the advice and recommendations he gave to me would have been the same he would have pursued if he were the client. That was important to me. I needed to work with an attorney I could trust with my best interest in mind...and that is what I got with Paul Schrier.

- Juan Rodriquez


I was involved in an auto accident in January 2016. We decided to contact Paul K. Schrier, PLLC for legal advice. He never got annoyed with me calling to ask questions, which was quite often. We have finally reached the final stages of this case, which they handled very well, and have come to a settlement. I highly recommend the Florida personal injury attorneys at The Law Offices of Paul K. Schrier, PLLC, especially Paul K. Schrier to any one who needs a personal injury attorney. Thank you very much Paul for everything you have done do me.
