At The Wiseman Law Firm in Orlando, Attorney Simon Wiseman handles all types of auto, motorcycle, bicycle, moped and pedestrian accident cases, from neck and back injuries that can affect someone for a few months to cases where someone has died or sustained catastrophic injuries that can change their lives forever.
Attorney Simon Wiseman is particularly skilled at handling cases where the injuries and damages are significant but the liability is difficult and the insurance coverage minimal. In 2006, attorney Simon Wiseman helped a young girl who suffered a catastrophic spinal cord injury resulting in partial quadriplegia when the car in which she was a passenger pulled out from the driveway of a newly constructed gas station and made a left-hand turn into oncoming traffic. The client was riding in the rear seat without her seat belt fastened. Attorney Simon Wiseman believed the fault for the accident lay in poorly placed palm trees, landscaping and wall which had been recently constructed around the gas station which obstructed the view of the driver.
In addition to collecting 160 times the insurance policy limits from the driver of the vehicle she was a passenger in, attorney Simon Wiseman also helped her sue the gas station, the construction company, the engineer and the landscape architect responsible for the design and construction of the gas station. In all, the team of lawyers, including Mr. Wiseman, was able to settle the case days before trial for approximately $8.9 million.
Before he became a lawyer representing people injured in motorcycle and auto accidents, attorney Simon Wiseman worked as a prosecutor and as an insurance defense lawyer. His experience with the insurance industry helps him protect the rights of people who suffer serious injuries and death in motor vehicle, bike and pedestrian accidents. His experience as a DUI prosecutor allows him great insight and knowledge when prosecuting personal injury claims where the at-fault driver was under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. Attorney Simon Wiseman often uses this experience to seek punitive damages in accidents caused by drunk drivers.
