Aggressive representation and personal service


We are Florida and Georgia auto accident and personal injury lawyers aggressively representing accident victims. With a half dozen fully-staffed offices and a team of more than a dozen military veteran attorneys, we're here to serve you. As military veterans, we bring the same sense of service, commitment and dedication to your case that has seen our attorneys through tours of duty in the Army, Navy and Marine Corps.

Our team has over 100 years of combined legal experience, and includes former insurance adjusters, a former insurance defense attorney, a retired FHP trooper, three licensed investigators, and over 40 professional and support staff to provide the personalized service that accident victims expect and deserve in their time of need.

The firm prides itself on providing aggressive representation and the personal service you expect and deserve.

And, unlike many law firms, we don't just settle!

We handle all types of motor vehicle accidents, including auto crashes, tractor trailer, logging and semi-truck accidents, commercial motor vehicle accidents (CMV), motorcycle, recreational vehicle (RV), boating and also bicycle and pedestrian accidents. Whether it's a soft tissue or whiplash injury, an accident involving brain damage, spinal cord injury, other serious injury or even the wrongful death of a loved one, Ron and the accident and injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P. A., take each case seriously. Call us now for a free consultation or complete the case contact form and we will contact you at your convenience to discuss your rights.

We understand every element of damages that is recoverable and we strive to maximize our clients’ recovery for each and every element available.

Insurance Claims Adjusters

Let’s face it, insurance adjusters are not on your side. Regardless of how friendly and sincere they may sound, or how interested they may seem in your situation, treatment and recovery, they are being paid to minimize your claim and, possibly, to deny your claim! In fact, their salaries and bonuses depend on it.

At the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A., we have former insurance adjusters and a former insurance defense attorney on our staff. We understand the games that insurance companies play, and how ruthless they can be in the handling of their insured’s claims. Simply put, they are NOT your friend!

What’s worse, even your own insurance company will often fight to deny your Personal Injury Protection (P.I.P.) medical payments, and, under certain circumstances, they can CUT OFF YOUR P.I.P. COV-ERAGE. That’s right! Your own insurance company can deny and terminate your $10,000 medical payment/lost wages claim. They can and do frequently minimize your uninsured motorist claim as well as deny you the coverage thay you paid for. It’s called a breach of contract, and it’s more common than you might think.

That’s where we come in. Our goal is to maximize your claim and ensure the insurance company does not wrongfully terminate or deny your claim for fair and just compensation. Again, our goal is to maximize your claim and ensure the insurance companies play fairly. You need a law firm that not only understands the process, but a firm that will sincerely fight to protect your rights. Our motto is simple: You Hurt? We FIGHT!"

After a motor vehicle accident you have questions. Call 1-855-WE-FIGHT anytime!

Our firm will do what is necessary to ensure you have the representation you need on your accident case. We understand that being injured from an accident is tough enough, so finding the right lawyer shouldn’t be! If you prefer us to come to your home we will be glad to do so. If you need an evening or weekend appointment, no problem. If you or a loved one were injured in a car accident, don’t settle for a lawyer who treats you like just another case. You deserve an accident lawyer who will give personal attention to your case and dedicate their time to helping you seek compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other injuries and damages. We believe a lawyer should provide both, aggressive representation and the personal service you expect and deserve!

Important things you should know if you’ve been involved in an accident (to help avoid common insurance claims tactics):

  • Do Not speak to Insurance Claims Adjusters (including yours!)
  • Do Not give any recorded statements without your Attorney
  • Do Not submit to any physical examinations
  • Seek Medical Treatment immediately if you or a family member may be injured
  • Finally, hire an Accident Attorney that fully understands the Accident Claims Process and
    that you believe will give you the representation that you expect and deserve from a lawyer!

For additional information on how we handle accident claims, contact us for a free consultation. Remember, you pay us nothing until your case is resolved.
