When a truck wreck, malfunctioning seat belt, or rollover causes serious injury, people often feel removed and alienated from a life they believe is no longer theirs, taken away from them by their accident. At the Butler Law Group we tell our client’s story, the physical and emotional trauma suffered by them. Setting their former hopes, dreams, and quality of life against the backdrop of their tragic accident, our attorneys give form and dimension to the reality of loss and the human element involved.
While we can’t change the past, we can help people recover financially from the injuries suffered by them and perhaps prevent future senseless harm to others. Our lawyers focus on a number of results, including financial recovery for our clients, justice, and a sense of putting futures back together.

Consulting with nationally recognized automotive design experts, engineers, and restraint system experts, we identify what led to a parts failure, why it occurred, and how it was causally related to the injuries suffered by our client. Using computer technology and design testing experts, we conduct crash tests and computer simulations to analyze all relevant variables.

We’ve taken on almost every major auto manufacturer in our pursuit of adequate compensation for our clients’ injuries.

Let us speak for those who no longer can speak for themselves. In the boardroom, at mediation, or in the courtroom, we will make sure the client’s story is heard.
- Rollover Accidents
Our experienced rollover accident attorneys represent clients injured in rollovers involving the following kinds of automobiles and others: Ford Explorer; Ford Expedition; Chevy S-10 Pickups; Chevy Tahoe; Cadillac Escalade; Chevrolet Suburban; GMC Jimmy; Isuzu Trooper; Isuzu Rodeo; Ford Ranger; Mazda B-Series; Mitsubishi Montero; and Chevy Silverado. Our years of experience and knowledge of the issues involved in rollover cases works to your advantage. We have the legal, scientific, and technical resources necessary to show defects manufacturers made with their vehicles and demand compensation for your injuries.
- Negligent/Inadequate Security
Our seasoned lawyers represent clients injured due to the following kinds of negligent security measures: Unlocked entry way doors; Absence of security cameras; Open gates or loading bay doors; Poorly lit stairwells or parking garages; Absence of security guards or attendants; and Failure to properly screen employees or visitors. Negligent security cases involve people who are victimized in ways that go beyond physical scars and damage. It often takes years for assault or rape victims to feel safe again. We speak for those who can no longer speak for themselves. Failure to provide appropriate security can rob someone of much more than their sense of security – it can rob them of their freedom and dignity. At the Butler Law Group, we demand adequate compensation for wounds that are more than just physical.
- Defective Seatbelts
Seatbelts should be your first line of defense against injury in most motor vehicle accidents. Seatbelts are designed to keep you safe and secure inside the vehicle at all times, particularly during an accident, but this isn't always the case. Sometimes during a high impact accident, seatbelts can unlatch and allow a passenger to be tossed about the inside of the vehicle without any protection, or potentially ejected from the car or truck. When a seatbelt fails in a serious accident the injuries are often catastrophic and include brain injury and spinal cord damage that may result in paralysis and possibly wrongful death. We have handled numerous cases involving defective seatbelts against many of the major auto makers. We work with nationally recognized automotive design experts, engineers, and restraint system experts, we identify what led to a parts failure, why it occurred, and how it was causally related to the injuries suffered by our client.
- Drunk Driving Accidents
We represent clients with the following types of injuries caused by drunk drivers: Paralysis; Lost limbs; broken bones; Head and spinal cord injuries; severe burns or disfigurement; and Nerve injury. It’s not uncommon for drunk drivers to leave the scene of an accident. At the Butler Law Group, we have the investigative resources and experience needed to help find drunk drivers who flee in an effort to try and avoid responsibility for the acts they’ve committed. We have tracked down drunk drivers who have fled to another state, uncovered their prior drunk driving offenses in pursuit of cases tried before a Florida jury. We can help you recover damages and demand justice from those who should have never gotten behind the wheel yet chose to do so at great risk to the motoring public.
