Attorney Aaron O’Brien also helps families who have lost loved ones or seen them injured after the negligence of car and truck drivers.
He has handled wrongful death and personal injury cases involving car and truck drivers injuring or causing the death of bicyclists and motorcyclists.
As an example, while litigating a case involving a car vs. biker crash that caused the tragic death of the biker, Attorney Aaron O’Brien wrote a warning to the insurance company for the driver. Mr. O’Brien asserted boldly that although it may not have been done yet in Florida, he intended to seek and collect punitive damages from the driver, whom O’Brien alleged was texting and driving at or near the time of the crash.
In the past, an insurance company would bitterly scoff at such a suggestion. But not anymore! Now, a Twentieth Judicial Circuit court judge right here in Southwest Florida ruled that punitive damages can be sought in a case involving the allegation of texting and driving resulting in the injury and death of a cyclist.
