        “Accident Case”

        Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice and Purtz, PA was the only law firm who would take our car accident case. Andrea Pleimling Smith was very thorough, explained everything in a very detailed fashion, and was easy to reach when questions arose. She kept us informed every step of the way. Without her, we would have suffered a severe financial loss due to an accident which was not our fault. Florida’s No Fault law is terrible and very unfair. Andrea and her team were very helpful in recouping all of the money we were required to spend!

        Karen and David B.

        “Thank you again for everything”

        Thank you again for everything you did for me. Your compassion and concern was greatly appreciated. I have all the faith in the world with you by my side. If ever I know someone who needs an attorney, I will recommend your office. Everyone I had dealings with was very professional. Good job.

        Question:

        How does a pedestrian injury claim differ from a normal auto accident claim?

        Answer:

        Pedestrian accident injury claims differ in multiple ways, shapes, and forms than automobile accident claims. A lot of times, it comes down to what Florida law says about the duty owed as a result of a crash involving a pedestrian. Pedestrians have certain duties and responsibilities under the law but the law more times than not is more favorable to pedestrians and puts certain duties and responsibilities on auto drivers to make sure they’re looking out for pedestrians certainly here in sunny southwest Florida where we’re out and about quite a bit just based upon our community and lovely weather that we have. The occurrence of the accident and putting the pieces together in a pedestrian accident case is vitally important from the very beginning.

        As opposed to an auto accident case where someone runs into the back of you while you’re at a stop sign, it’s pretty clear in that circumstance who’s at fault for the accident, but in pedestrian cases, it can become more involved. It’s certainly important that you get an attorney onboard early, that you document not only your injuries and your damages but the scene of the incident early on so that we, your attorneys, can go about dealing with the insurance companies using the law in Florida to our benefit to show who certainly was at fault for the accident more times than not it being that motor vehicle driver who simply wasn’t paying attention in looking at for pedestrians.

        As far as damages goes, the damages in a pedestrian accident case and the damages in an auto accident case are very similar and pretty much overlap in Florida, the biggest difference, again, being who was at fault for the accident and trying to put those pieces together early on. At Goldstein Buckley Cechman, Rice & Purtz, we’re committed to getting on the ground level with you early on in the case to make sure we are putting together the best case we can to show who certainly it was that was at fault for the crash.
