we will be there for you
Oviedo sees its fair share of car accidents; but what’s “normal” for the city is anything but mundane when it happens to you.
Accidents don’t need to involve high speeds or multiple cars to cause physical injury. Even a “minor” fender bender can lead to conditions like whiplash and slipped discs–conditions that can come with life-long consequences.
At Beers & Gordon, we have seen first hand the effect that car accidents can have on Oviedo’s residents. Unfortunately, we’ve also seen all the ways that insurance companies will undervalue these claims. This is why–as your Oviedo car accident attorneys–we will work tirelessly to get the compensation you deserve.
Unlike some other law firms, we don’t just call ourselves Oviedo car accident attorneys, we are Oviedo car accident attorneys.
We live and work in this beautiful city and pride ourselves on serving the community in whatever ways we can.

The wealth of knowledge and experience that we’ve collected over the years has given us a unique form of insight into how car accident cases work and how to win them.
When needed, we partner with top-notch experts in accident reconstruction, biomechanics, and more. Combined with the information we received working on behalf of insurance companies for over 40 years combined, this knowledge gives us the clearest picture of your Oviedo car accident so that we can help you receive every penny you’re entitled to.
Our consultations are always free.
The steps you take after your car accident are crucial at giving you the best possible outcome for your case.
After attending to any medical emergencies, you should report the crash to the police. The point of this isn’t to have the at-fault driver arrested, but to collect relevant information and create a legal record of what happened.
Many times, the police report has been the most important piece of evidence in a car accident case. In a “s/he said, s/he said” scenario, an expert report from a neutral third party can help turn the tides in your favor.
Next, file an insurance claim. As a “No Fault State,” Florida requires that each driver turn to their own auto insurance policy first for payment of medical benefits, regardless of who was at-fault for the crash. You must file a claim with your own insurance company for any treatment that you receive.
Even if you are not certain the extent of your injuries, it’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible following your car accident. You only have 14 days after your accident to start treatment if you plan on using your policy’s Personal Injury Protection (PIP) benefits. If you fail to use these available benefits, the other insurance company still receives the benefit of the fact that you should have used them. So, you could be starting your bodily injury case against the other insurer in a hole.
The type and quality of your medical professionals can make or break your case. If you need recommendations, we are happy to connect you with Oviedo-area healthcare professionals who can provide you with first-rate care. It is not about making a case for you but instead finding you the right medical professional who can put you on the road to recovery.
No matter how smoothly you think your car accident claim is going, you should always trust the Oviedo car accident attorneys at Beers & Gordon with your personal injury claim.
In our experience, insurance companies look out for their own interests, not yours. Time and time again, we have seen insurance representatives undervalue or even deny claims, taking advantage of the very people they promised to protect.
We can assure you that your insurance company will have a team of attorneys as well experienced staff working on their behalf. Working with the Oviedo car accident attorneys at Beers & Gordon is a way to level the playing field and give you the best choice of a fair outcome.
Who you select to be your Oviedo car accident attorney has a huge bearing on the outcome of your case.
Some firms have only worked on one side of the courtroom. We’ve worked for both the insurance companies and injured accident victims like you. We put our entire wealth of knowledge to work for you.
Other attorneys may push you toward a settlement–even one that is lower than you deserve–because they are not confident about their litigation skills. At Beers & Gordon, we’re no strangers to the courtroom and David Beers is even a board certified civil trial lawyer. We will never suggest that you accept any offer that isn’t 100% fair.
Or the attorney may push for a settlement because their big firm has internal quotas that must be met for the month. So, taking a less on your case but getting the fee for the firm right away may be more important to the attorney than ensuring you receive fair value. That does not happen at Beers & Gordon where you are a name and not a number.
