“In June of 2019, a distracted driver in Jacksonville hit and very seriously injured me, which resulted in about a year of recovery. Chris Burns and his team did a fantastic job on a very complicated case, which resulted in a large and very equable settlement considering the number of injuries suffered. Chris is highly knowledgeable on bike safety laws and knows how to win cases for cycling accidents. I would highly recommend Chris Burns if you are injured”
