About Robert

Learn Robert’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Personal injury
    Plaintiff's personal injury of all types including products liability, truck crashes and medical liability. Focusing on catastrophically injured or killed individuals.

  2. Car accident

  3. Wrongful death

Mr. Bruner focuses his practice on serious injury and wrongful death cases, including catastrophic car and truck accidents, medical malpractice, construction site injuries and product liability claims. He also has extensive experience handling third-party negligent/bad faith failure to settle claims against liability insurers on behalf of defendants financially devastated by verdicts in excess of their insurance coverage.

A skilled and experienced trial lawyer, Mr. Bruner is board-certified in both Civil Trial Advocacy and Civil Pre Trial Advocacy by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. Requirements for board certification include documentation of significant trial experience, peer review by lawyers and judges, and the successful completion of an extensive written examination.

Mr. Bruner grew up working in his father’s law practice, watching his dad represent individuals in criminal and personal injury cases. From an early age, he realized how important it was for people facing long odds within the legal system to have a strong advocate. He attended law school at Wake Forest University in North Carolina and earned his law degree in 2003.

During law school, he learned trial and leadership skills as captain of the National Trial Team, president of the Student Trial Bar, and a member of the Moot Court Board. Upon graduation, he was selected for membership in the Order of the Barristers and received the Robert Goldberg Award for Trial Advocacy, Wake Forest’s highest trial advocacy honor.

Before beginning work with Kit Belt in 2011, Mr. Bruner gained extensive experience representing seriously injured individuals in complex lawsuits while working at other law firms in Alabama. This included five years working directly for and learning from well-known Alabama trial lawyer Lanny Vines.

In addition to board certification, Mr. Bruner has been recognized as among the “Top 50: Alabama Super Lawyers” and included in The Best Lawyers in America for his work in product liability litigation. He also holds the “AV Preeminent” rating conferred by the national legal publication Martindale-Hubbell. This is Martindale-Hubbell’s highest rating for both ethical standards and legal ability and is based upon peer review by judges and fellow attorneys.

What Mr. Bruner values most as an Alabama injury lawyer is the ability to get results for people who have been catastrophically injured. He approaches every case with compassion and respect for the injured person, and tenacity when fighting on their behalf. He’s proud to have been able to recover numerous multi-million dollar settlements or verdicts, but even more so to have gotten his clients results that affected their lives for the better after a serious injury.

Outside the office, Mr. Bruner enjoys spending as much time as possible with his wife Abbie and his daughters Caroline and Kate.
