Auto Accidents

Car crashes happen every day in Southwest Florida, and the overwhelming majority of them are caused by a driver’s negligence. Common problems include speeding, texting and driving, distracted driving, drowsy driving, drunk driving, and a failure to follow the rules of the road. Auto accident victims may be entitled to a considerable recovery. Damages can range from minor bruises and lacerations to lifelong suffering or even wrongful death. Property damage is often a factor, too.

Most car crash cases involve an insurance company. Unfortunately, most insurance companies will do everything they can to compensate you as little as possible. Our job is to insist that they not lowball you and instead pay what you deserve. We pursue that compensation through strategic negotiation and aggressive litigation, taking them all the way to court when needed. Let our Fort Myers auto accident attorneys help you.

Trucking Accidents

Commercial trucks are enormous and they typically cause catastrophic damage. Even in more moderate cases, victims can encounter real hardship. Our investigations often reveal that in addition to driver negligence, the truckers’ employers play a role in causing the crash — a result of poor vehicle maintenance, grueling work schedules for their drivers, regulation violations, or some other form of negligence.

Our Fort Myers trucking accident attorneys are prepared to pursue compensation from drivers, insurers, employers, and any other party responsible for making our state’s highways less safe for you.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles do not offer a lot of physical protection. Accordingly, their drivers and passengers are vulnerable to horrible injuries and even death. Sadly, other vehicle drivers have a tendency to disrespect bikers on the road. Cars often cut off motorcycles, forget to check blind spots, or simply refuse to fairly share the road.

Motorcycles have the same rights on the roads as any other vehicles. At Viles & Beckman, LLC we are dedicated to protecting those rights and fighting for the victims of these tragic accidents and their families. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed on a motorcycle in Southwest Florida, the Fort Myers motorcycle accident lawyers in our office can help.

We understand how devastating any bike or pedestrian accident can be. The damages in these cases are usually severe, and fatalities are not uncommon. Even in the most difficult cases, our Fort Myers pedestrian accident attorneys are determined to provide compassionate support and aggressive legal representation for victims and families.

Boating Accidents

Home to so many beautiful waterways, Fort Myers and its surrounding communities — Cape Coral, Naples, Marco Island, Bonita Springs, and beyond — see their fair share of boating in both commercial transit and recreation. Unfortunately, boating accidents are all too common, and they’re usually the result of carelessness.

Boats and other watercraft must be handled with the same sense of responsibility expected of any other vehicle. The law requires it. The Fort Myers boating accident attorneys in our firm will hold negligent boaters and their insurers responsible for the damages they cause.
