My name is Nick Zissimopulos. I’m a lawyer and partner in the Gainesville based law office of Glassman & Zissimopulos. We focus our practice on helping people who have been injured in automobile accidents or suffered losses because of someone else’s negligence. I am board certified in Criminal Trial Law by the Florida Bar. This allows me to be recognized as an expert in that area. There are nearly 100,000 lawyers in Florida and less than 400 lawyers have that certification. As a result of this experience and expertise, I also represent people who have been accused of state and federal crimes. I read the local Gainesville news every day and this blog is simply a reflection of my thoughts on some of the top law related stories.

You don’t need to read the local news to understand the headaches of Gainesville and Alachua County traffic. Lane widening, lane narrowing, and development in all directions means more congestion. More congestion means more accidents. These automobile accidents are an unfortunate part of our lives.

At Glassman & Zissimopulos we handle all types of personal injury cases arising from accidents and crashes, including car accidents, semi-truck accidents, and construction vehicle accidents. Some injuries are immediately obvious and life changing. We have stood with families who have lost their loved ones in car accidents and we have fought for people who suffered severe injuries including amputations.
We have also had serious cases in which the injuries were less obvious at first but can be devastating. The insurance companies spend billions of dollars each year to make terms like “whiplash”, “soft tissue injury”, and “back pain” seem like bad words. But the reality is that our clients have real pain. The powerful insurance lobby in Florida has successfully passed laws requiring you to act quickly in order to protect your rights if you are injured in a car accident. Often times Dan Glassman and I speak with people who had tried to “tough it out” for a couple of weeks but now are in a lot of pain. Their delay in seeking medical treatment may not only cause their medical condition to worsen but may also forfeit some of their rights.
Gainesville roads are always busy and the construction only makes driving more dangerous. If you are involved in an accident and injured because of someone else’s negligence, do not delay, seek medical treatment immediately.
