Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents (car, truck, bus, SUV, ambulance or motorcycle) are common occurrences throughout Florida and in St. Petersburg, especially on US 19 and I275. Most motor vehicle accidents are unintentional, caused by momentary distraction from cell phone usage, eating, talking or daydreaming. Other accidents are caused by reckless driving, by a person driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI), or texting while driving.
While motor vehicle accidents may be commonplace, each accident has its own set of circumstances. The level of injury, types of insurance coverage the parties have as well as how the accident occurred all impact how a case should properly handled by attorneys.
The St. Petersburg Accident Attorneys at Whittel & Melton build every case with an eye toward trial so when negligent drivers, and the insurance companies that represent them, do not make a fair settlement offer, we are prepared to fight for you in court.
