Orlando Accident Attorney Representing Injured Car Crash Victims Throughout Central Florida
I am Orlando accident attorney Michael T. Gibson and I am dedicated to helping accident victims and their families through the difficult, overwhelming, and often frustrating process of filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim. Whether you are looking for legal help for yourself or a loved one after a serious car accident, I will ensure your needs are met today and in the future.
An Orlando Personal Injury Lawyer Who Understands
Every day, as drivers we are put in situations that can result in accidents. Though we always don’t always consider it when we get behind the wheels of our cars, we are assuming responsibility for potentially dangerous machines. Any Orlando accident attorney can tell you, every decision we make - from yielding to pedestrians in crosswalks to driving more cautiously in the rain - while driving affects our safety, our passengers’ safety, and that of the motorists around us.
Of course, on top of the responsibility of driving safely, we also assume tremendous risk. Each time we go for a drive, we encounter dozens, if not hundreds, of other drivers. These drivers may be in passenger cars, semi trucks or tractor-trailers, or on motorcycles, and we are exposed to their decisions regardless of how carefully we operate our own vehicles. This is why it can be beneficial to know an Orlando personal injury lawyer in your area who limits his practice to motor vehicle accidents.
Do You Really Need a Lawyer to Handle Your Claim?
With all of the cars on the road and all of the driving we do, our chances of being involved in a car accident are high. However, not every accident case requires assistance from an Orlando personal injury lawyer. Such cases include accidents that only result in minor injuries and/or minimal vehicle damage. Serious or fatal car accident cases, on the other hand, are best handled by a professional who has an in-depth knowledge of Florida's laws and who concentrates on these cases alone. In any type of accident claim, dealing with your insurance company, the other driver’s insurance company, and body shops can take weeks and still cost you a significant amount of money out-of-pocket. These are stresses that don’t need to burden you or your family – and can be handled by an experienced Orlando accident attorney like myself.
When an accident results in injuries, the situation can quickly become overwhelming. Especially when faced with painful, lengthy medical treatments and rehabilitation that leave you with a significant amount of medical bills and lost wages. If you are unable to work because of your injuries, you may not be able to provide for your family. At this time, an insurance settlement can be a welcomed financial boost in your life, and an Orlando personal injury lawyer is just the type of professional who can help you reach a fair resolution to your case.
My Mother's Car Accident Prompted Me to Become a Lawyer
When a serious accident results in devastating injuries, you need an Orlando accident attorney who not only understands Florida’s legal system, but who also empathizes with what you’re going through. I understand how important legal representation is during an injury settlement because I’ve experienced firsthand just how helpful a lawyer can be after a serious auto accident. When my mother was injured in a car accident in 2000, I watched her attorney help her obtain a fair settlement against the negligent driver that caused her injuries.
This gentleman’s tenacity made such a difference in our family’s life that it inspired me to become a personal injury lawyer myself. I opened my own law firm in Orlando with an outstanding team capable of supporting our clients. The bi-lingual attorneys and staff at Michael T. Gibson, P.A. provide services to both English and Spanish-speaking accident victims.

My years spent serving the residents of Orlando as a personal injury lawyer has given me the knowledge and resources necessary to handle many types of vehicle accident claims. I want my clients to be informed about how accident cases proceed and the importance of having an Orlando accident attorney on their side.
I’ve taken my knowledge and experience in the personal injury litigation field and compiled it into a free book titled Your Complete Accident Claims Guide (also available in Spanish). My guide shows you how to maximize your claim against the insurance companies, who will often stop at nothing to win the case. Armed with the right representation from an auto justice attorney like myself, you can turn the tables and get the justice you deserve.
When to Seek Legal Guidance from an Orlando Personal Injury Lawyer
Whether you’ve been in a car, truck, or motorcycle accident, I can help you get the compensation and justice you deserve. Taking legal action is an important step, especially if you have suffered injuries as a result of the negligence of another driver, but there is a window of opportunity that determines the success of your case.
While it may seem counterintuitive, the best time to contact my law firm is immediately following your accident. Even if you already received emergency medical attention, consulting an injury lawyer before you seek follow-up medical care can ensure you selected the proper doctor, receive the best treatment and obtain fair compensation for your damages. Your timing has never been more important especially since the passing of Florida's new PIP insurance laws on January 1, 2013. Watch this video to learn more about Florida's New PIP.
If you or someone you know has had previous experience with a Florida auto accident insurance claim, you know how difficult the process can be. Insurance companies have their own legal teams, and their business model relies on paying out as little as possible. “Going it alone” when you face a complicated claim process rarely results in a maximum payout and many times leads to insurance disputes.
