Personal Injury Practice Areas

Since 1995, the experienced Fort Myers personal injury lawyers at Viles & Beckman, LLC have helped the people of South Florida recover the financial assistance they need in the aftermath of an unfair or unexpected injury.

Your story is worth our time and attention. We know that no two injuries are quite alike and that the same accident might involve numerous, complex areas of law. That’s why the legal team you choose should be a deeply experienced one.

Unlike many other law firms, we do not dismiss case inquiries just because they involve relatively modest damages. Likewise, we are not afraid to take on extremely complicated or unusual cases. Our combined experience, with more than 40 years of practice in Florida personal injury law, has equipped us to competently and strategically handle virtually any kind of personal injury claim.

Every victim deserves justice. Every person deserves to be heard. Don’t give up on your claim until you’ve at least scheduled a free case review with our office first.

We look at each potential claim from every available angle. You might be surprised to learn how much your case could be worth. In fact, some of our clients have come to us after other law firms turned them down and we were able to achieve strong outcomes in their cases.

While we can never guarantee an outcome or that we will be able to accept representation in your case, you can always count on our Fort Myers personal injury lawyers to give your story the informed, compassionate, and comprehensive review it deserves.

Our firm has a strong and strategic command of virtually every area of Florida’s personal injury law.

The following is an overview of the cases we work with most often:

  • Auto Accidents - 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.
  • Truck 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.
  • 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. We are dedicated to protecting those rights and fighting for the victims of these tragic accidents and their families.
  • Bike & Pedestrian Accidents - Florida leads the country in pedestrian deaths. Careless driving can claim the lives of innocent people who are simply enjoying Southwest Florida, either as residents or visitors. 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 attorneys are determined to provide compassionate support and aggressive legal representation for victims and families.
  • Boat Accidents - 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 boat accident attorneys in our firm will hold negligent boaters and their insurers responsible for the damages they cause.
  • Personal Injury - There are many kinds of personal injury. Victims are often surprised to learn that the negligent party had a legal duty to behave more carefully than he or she did. Never assume you don’t have a case until you’ve talked with the experienced Fort Myers personal injury lawyers at Viles & Beckman, LLC.
  • Premises Liability - Generally speaking, property owners in Florida have a legal responsibility to keep their premises safe for everyone. If you’ve been injured on someone else’s property in the state of Florida, you may be entitled to reimbursement for your suffering. From slip and fall cases to dangerous property conditions and security issues, our Fort Myers premises liability lawyers can help.
  • Nursing Home Negligence - When doctors, nurses, or nursing home managers fail to keep our loved ones safe and healthy, we can take legal action to hold them accountable and recover reimbursement for the costs of their carelessness. Our Fort Myers nursing home negligence attorneys can help.
  • Defective Products - If you have sustained illness or injury while using a product, pill, or some other device, you may be protected under state and/or federal law. The people who make, market, and sell products have a responsibility for what they put in the marketplace. We are here to hold irresponsible merchants and manufacturers responsible for the misfortune they cause.

About Personal Injury & Negligence

In the context of Florida law, the term personal injury refers to any damage that you or your loved one experiences as a result of someone else’s negligence.

Negligence refers to another party’s failure to behave reasonably, act carefully, or follow the law.

You might be surprised to learn that even true accidents can constitute negligence. In fact, most negligent people never intend to cause anyone harm. But, their careless actions have real consequences and the law holds careless people accountable for those consequences. More often than not, that means they are responsible for assuming the financial costs of your suffering and losses.

Ideally, negligent people would always agree to pay for the injuries they’ve caused — and their insurance companies would agree to abide by their policy terms as well as state and federal law. Too often, though, defendants and their insurers choose to put up a fight instead. They do everything they can to reduce their financial liability, including “lowballing” your damages and requiring you to take legal action before they even begin to consider a fair valuation of your claim.
