New Smyrna Beach Car Accident Attorneys
Recognized by National Geographic Magazine as one of the world's top 20 surf towns, it's easy to see what the city of New Smyrna Beach is best known for. The star attraction in New Smyrna is its 13 mile stretch of white sandy beaches. Sunbathing, swimming, bicycling, treasure hunting, strolling or doing nothing at all is the choice of most visitors - but the beach is also well known to surfers, offering some of the finest wave action on the Eastern Seaboard.
New Smyrna Beach also holds the distinction of being the second oldest city in Florida. The town was settled in 1768 after Dr. Andrew Turnbull, a Scottish physician and entrepreneur, obtained a land grant from the British Crown and brought with him 1,500 European immigrants and declared New Smyrna as Britain's 14th Crown Colony. The town was the largest British colonization attempt in the New World, nearly three times larger than the first settlement at Jamestown in 1607.
Today, the town offers visitors many historical legends and artifacts as witness to its rich history. In fact, more than 30 historical sites continue to intrigue visitors and Volusia County residents alike. These sites include the Sugar Mill ruins, found in both New Smyrna Beach and nearby Port Orange, The Old Fort and surrounding Old Fort Park, the Eldora House in The Canaveral National Seashore, and the New Smyrna Museum of History.
Whether you are on vacation in New Smyrna, visiting friends or family, or a long-time resident of the area, a car accident can happen at any time, and often times it's difficult to decide what the next steps may be. New Smyrna Beach car accident lawyer James O. Cunningham understands that car accident victims may have questions about their legal rights following a crash and we are committed to helping injured drivers, passengers, and pedestrians understand these rights and how they may be able to obtain compensation to cover damages such as medical bills and lost wages.
With more than 30 years experience working with local authorities and experts in the greater Orlando area, we understand firsthand how to launch a thorough investigation that will illustrate how the other party was negligent and therefore responsible for your injuries damages. During our investigation, we will seek to determine whether the defendant:
- Failed to pay attention to their surroundings
- Drove while distracted
- Drove under the influence
- Violated traffic laws
- Drove without a license or insurance
- Operated an unsafe vehicle
In some cases, neither party is primarily responsible if the accident occurred due to an unsafe or improperly marked roadway, in which case we will direct our attention to the local authorities responsible. But no matter what the cause of your accident, we'll work hard to get you the compensation you need and deserve to recover from your injuries and damages. To determine the amount of compensation to request, and for which expenses, we'll work with experts to pinpoint your injuries and project your accident-related expenses. The different types of auto accidents include, but are not limited to:
