Auto Accident Cases in Jacksonville, FL
In the wake of a traffic accident, you have a lot to deal with. This can include medical treatment and bills, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, lost income, out-of-pocket expenses, and the disruption of your life. Minor accidents can lead to injuries such as cuts, bruises, and whiplash. More serious accidents can result in painful sprains, dislocations, fractures, broken bones, internal injuries, brain injuries, amputations, burns, and spinal cord injuries. In the worst cases, such as with injuries to the spine and brain, they can be devastating and life-changing resulting in permanent disability such as paralysis. When any injuries have been caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of others, you deserve justice and compensation for all of your damages and losses, past and future.
These types of injuries are often the result of such negligent traffic behaviors as:
- Drunk driving
- Driving while texting or using a cell phone/distracted driving
- Aggressive driving such as tailgating or weaving in and out of lanes
- Drowsy driving
- Failing to obey traffic laws
Florida Auto Accident Damages
The type of damages you will receive in a car accident case will be based on the type and extent of your injuries and how they will affect you in the future. These damages are broken down into economic and non-economic types. Economic damages are those represented by bills and invoices, such as medical expenses, lost wages, damage to your vehicle, and out-of-pocket costs associated with your injuries. Non-economic damages include pain, suffering, anguish and loss of enjoyment of life. With a permanent injury, all of these include "past" and "future" damages and losses, over the course of your lifetime.
Our firm will also pursue punitive damages in cases where they apply. These damages may be awarded to you where the wrongdoing has been particularly egregious, reckless or intentional. Examples of this include drunk and/or drugged driving. Whenever we have the opportunity, under the law, to seek punitive damages on behalf of our clients, we do so.

- Our overriding goal is to maximize your recovery.
In Florida auto accident cases, you will be able to collect limited compensation for damages through the personal injury protection (PIP) insurance coverage you carry that is mandated by law. In many cases, however, this limited compensation will be totally inadequate when facing huge medical bills, lost wages, and for non-economic damages such as pain and suffering or emotional distress. In these cases, a fault-based claim against the negligent driver and/or the driver’s insurer must be pursued. Insurance companies providing liability benefits to at-fault drivers do not necessarily view and focus on the best interests of accident victims as their main priority. They have a duty of good faith to their own insureds and a fiduciary responsibility to their policyholder. They may seem friendly and accommodating, but the object of their business is to remain profitable, which equates to paying out as little as possible to settle a claim. This results in various tactics designed to deny or minimize your claim. They may try to pin the blame on you and thus deny liability. They may also pressure you into quickly accepting a settlement that is far below what your case is worth and thus giving up any further rights. This is why it is vital to seek representation from the Law Offices Of Fred Tromberg.
Our firm knows how to deal with insurance companies and their efforts to protect themselves at your expense. We know how to investigate, document, and build claims so as to put you in the strongest possible position when negotiating a settlement. It is common knowledge that accident victims represented by an attorney recover more compensation than unrepresented victims. Our firm will engage in tough negotiations to help you gain a fair and just settlement commensurate you’re your losses. If that fails, we have the abilities and experience to present your case fully and forcefully in court.
